Favourite things Friday - Family version

By PaisleyJade - Friday, January 29, 2010

I'm totally loving these things at the moment... 

The secret stash of pistachio nuts in my bag...

That someone was thoughtful and brought home a little chocolate rose yesterday (and then ate half of it)...

That same someone tried to teach my boys how to put spagetti up their noses to pull out of their mouths last week (maybe I don't love this thing that much)...

Kids getting creative with paints (and me not freaking out about the mess)...

More beach trips (even though it's been rather overcast)...

The many uses for boxes...

  19. Thanks for your comment on my blog!
    I've had a look around your site and it looks great. I'll be coming back!

  20. A secret stash is good - us Mum's are the biggest time 'sharers' that ever lived - right down to our bods to grow our babies in - so it's a good thing to have our own little treats on the sly sometimes! My current indulgence is Cherry Ripe bars - yum!


Thanks for your comments... I love hearing from you!!!
