Feb Photo a Day on Instagram

I think I've mentioned before how much I love instagram. In fact, I think I spend most of my 'online time' there these days. It's so easy and so addictive :)

Like thousands of other instagrammers I've been joining in everyday with FatMumSlim's #febphotoaday challenge. It's heaps of fun and definitely gets me thinking most days. Here's what I've shared so far...

Day 1 | My view | my en-suite as I cleaned it

Day 2 | words | DIY pallet art in my laundry (details here)
Day 3 | Hands | Its amazing to see how much Max has learnt to do with his little hands in two short years

Day 4 | Stranger | a pharmacist with a sense of humour?

Day 5 | 10am | trying to work out which of these two cheeky cousins stole the pink donut (although Max confessed, we later found out it was Ava!)
Day 6 | Dinner | a quick and easy Monday night dinner
Day 7 | Button | waiting to be turned into a cushion
Day 8 | Sun | trying to break through the clouds (view over my back fence)

Day 9 | front door | Max waving to his cousins (details of the DIY door frosting here & the DIY door-mat here)
Day 10 | Self-Portrait | baby cuddles after a rough night

Day 11 | Something that makes me happy | shopping with my beautiful sister
Day 12 | My Closet | this is the only corner of it safe for viewing
Day 13 | Blue | blue from all the corners of my house
Day 14 | Heart
Day 15 | Phone | My gorgeous bestie and her baby boy

Day 16 | Something new
Day 17 | Time | 10:37am playing in the splash pool after Max's swimming lesson
Day 18 | Drink
Day 19 | Something I hate to do | pay tolls
Day 20 | Handwriting | on my kitchen chalkboard

Day 21 | A fave photo of me | meeting Max for the very first time
Day 22 | Where I Work
Day 23 | Shoes | I got these flats in a two for $30 sale

Chantelle has posted a new list for next month. Check it out here if you want to play along too!

A Valentine Guest Post

 Hello Tamsyn :) 

You've always suggested that I do a guest post on your blog but I never really knew what to say.  Well, nothing has changed, I'm still clueless, but I guess today is a great opportunity to put a few words on the interwebs about how you make me feel.

It's no secret the past year has been tough with a lot of ups and downs.  We've come up against some pretty big things and you've surprised me with your courage and love every step of the way. It's going to be a long and bumpy road, but that's something we'll do together. 

Tamsyn, Marrying you and starting a family was the best thing I ever did. You put up with a lot from me and I don't think I ever really do enough to show you how much I love you.  You're the best mother that Max could ask for, and the best wife I could have ever imagined.  We're both lucky to have you in our lives.  I may not say it all the time, but everyday I'm thankful you part of my life.

Happy Valentines day smexo, I choo choo choose you.

Your partner in crime,

Calendar Journal

A while back I was inspired by this calendar journal that I spotted on Design Sponge. You've probably seen it before too, it's been round the blogosphere a few times over. Anyway, I pinned it to my 'must DIY this' board and then promptly forgot about it.

I was reminded of it a couple of weeks ago when Laura blogged about the version she made.

Gorgeous huh!!

I finally got my butt into gear on the weekend and made myself one too.

Now all I need to do is remember to write something down each day :)
