Things I’m Loving

It seems I haven’t joined in with 'Things I'm Loving', in like forever… and since there a few things I’m loving at the moment (most of which are related to sunshine, yay!); I’ve decided to join in today.

I’m loving…


Kiddie picnics (and these two critters obviously!)…


Eating iceblocks from The Icebar Co (lemonade is best) in the sunshine.

(Please try to ignore that large bit of snot mingling with Noah’s iceblock! What’s that? You didn’t notice it until I pointed it out, but now you can’t take your eyes of it? Whoops sorry about that!


I love the hidden messages on the sticks almost as much as the iceblocks… especially this one. We live in the Hawkes Bay so I’ll say ‘hello’ to the lemons on your behalf.

“Hello Lemons”


I’m also loving … wearing summery sandals – Spring must have well and truly sprung here and it is definitely starting to feel like Summer’s on it’s way!


… and receiving these gorgeous handcrafted stamps in the mail from here.

Now I can’t wait to try out this awesome tutorial!

And lastly, have you seen this awesome (17 minute) mini-movie of the animated history of Lego? It’s well worth a watch!


Joining in with 'Things I'm Loving' over at MNMs

I wish I was loving the sunshine. Melbourne keeps teasing us with a nice day and then making it cold and wet the next. I can't wait to see what you do with your stamps! I've had so much fun stamping on fabric.

So great to have you linking up with Things I'm Loving this week. As a mama of 2 boys and a hubby who all love LEGO I shall definitely be sharing this video with them! Thanks :-)

Oh and yep I agree the Icebar Co rocks too, I quite like the ginger beer flavour too :-)

the first picture is especially beautiful, and a great summer moment to capture. playing outside on a blanket (and even taking my naps there) is one of my favorite childhood summer memories.

Thanks for pointing out the snot! :D You're right, I didn't notice it until you pointed it out. lol. Hannah has had one of those almost constantly this week too.
I love that No Big Dill tutorial! Can't wait to see how you go with it :)

Hee, hee, 'the snot' - oooooo - I hadn't noticed until you said and then... you're right - it's now stuck in my mind! I have plenty of pics of my kids like that too ;)

The first photo is picture perfect and so idyllic looking.

I shall grab a moment to watch that video with my older girls later (when they're away... having a Saturday lie in) - they love Lego.

Love wearing sandals too - though Welly has thrown us a cold curve ball for the weekend :( I LOVE your leggings by the way - I'm guessing they aren't easy to come by or have a story? They just look so unique. I loving leggings - but rarely find funky ones that cool!
