Today we headed to Lake Taylor. Close to the lake the wind was fierce and being the forgetful mother I am I only packed another set of clothing in case the kids got wet. Nothing for gale force nor’westers blowing across a mountain lake 😂 But as you can see Miss 2 copied her Great Grandmother and kept her hands warm & hood up 💕
Whole fam made dinner tonight. It's like there were 3 kids, it was stressful af. We also spiked the mince with spinach but Swayze sussed us out and only ate corn chips. Corn = vege. Counts aye?
Home from Our quick weekend getaway to Wellington 👌🏼 We had a blast 🎉 We managed to fit in a lot of activities, which kept the wee babes busy 👍🏻 Big shout out to @readingcinemasnz for our tickets to their screening of Its a bugs life” for the Pixar Film Festival (which runs 14th Oct - 5 Nov) kids thoroughly enjoyed it, we couldn’t believe how massive the cinemas were! The seats were so comfy and the sound system was next level ! Highly recommend it if your ever in the area 👍🏻
Woohoo vacation time, this time tomorrow we will be somewhere warmer 💃🏼💃🏼 don’t worry though Boob or Bottle will still be open thanks to my lovely sister. While we will endeavour to get all orders out ASAP as per normal please allow a little longer for delivery as my sister does also have a full time job. Enjoy your Sunday 😘😘📷 @teresa_anker

I had a great girls' night out to #galalatina2017 held last night by @aia_jakarta at @mo_jakarta
The evening included wonderful dance performances, a fantastic band, delicious 4course meal and some wickedly tasty Caprihinas.
This old bassinet made its way into our house this week - thinking it might give bubs a bit more room than the Moses basket and save the need to assemble the cot for a wee bit?? Need to find a mattress for it tho - where do I start looking??
Ain’t that the truth! In just over a week we get to escape Auckland for a whole week! It might not be a tropical island but if there’s a beach, I’m good! Sometimes a change of scenery is what one needs! 🙌🏻 Bring on some 30th birthday celebrations, the beach, fireworks and some much needed quality time with my wee fam! 👌🏻☀️🌊🎉

Another day, another packed lunch.
I was totally that mum who bought her kids lunches from the canteen aaaall the time simply out of convenience, plus there was the fact that $20 was the minimum you could add to your account 😂 (it was an online only one) so that would spread over quite a few days! •
Any way, I know the struggle is real sometimes and I’m still perfecting the “whole foods” gig, especially when it comes to my kids and their fussy palettes! Slow progress is better than no progress at all 😉 •
Here’s a look at the kids lunch from the other day:
🍗Chicken schnitzel + salad
🍗Grapes + strawberries
🍗Mini banana & oat pancakes + carrot sticks 🍗Choc muffin + kefir yoghurt •
The recipes for each snack will be up on the blog 🤗 p.s - how the heck do you create paragraphs on Insta?! Because this is killing me 😆😩
The girls playhouse, built by hubby out of scrap timber, gets so much use during the warmer months. Miss 5 even cleaned it out yesterday while her little sister was making me cups of tea with sand in the little kitchen 💕
It's been a long week of way too much thinking, my anxiety at an all time high, but thank the stars I've overcome panic attacks these days.. So whilst pushing myself to keep focus on what's important: my kids, myself (wow I actually included myself for once), my goals, my work and this dream that is taking shape - Friday night minimum effort in the kitchen = an old favourite Eggs and Soldiers 😍
Party prep for Wyatt’s 5th birthday has been in full swing the last couple of days.
It’s been such a crazy busy week and I can’t wait to celebrate my baby in his next chapter.....
Party day is tomorrow and it’s all about dragons 🐉
