Holiday Photos: Waterproof Camera Snaps

I’ve already shared with you a few sets of photos from my recent trip to Mexico and the next few I thought I’d post are from the waterproof camera that my fiance and I bought to take away with us, knowing the area was good for sealife. The quality isn’t great but it was a great chance to take photos in the sea, most of the time by our hotel beach but also when we went sailing on a catamaran and dropped anchor offshore to do some snorkeling.

My Favourite Popsicle Recipes

My Pinterest food for recipes has nearly 300 pins on it so far, and something that seems to be sticking out as a big love of mine based on what I pin is popsicles. I adore them, and have even posted my own recipe for some here back last March, but I don’t think I make nearly enough of them based on how many recipes take my fancy. I’ve picked out my favourite bunch here in the hope that it’ll spur me on to make some more over the coming months, even if we are headed into fall right now and they may not be the most appropriate snack for the cooler weeks we’ve sure got coming. I don’t mind, I’ll just wrap myself in a blanket as I eat them, remembering the warmer times of Summer!

Happy 3rd Birthday

Cody's 3rd Birthday

Today is the 3rd birthday of our nephew Cody and we couldn’t be happier to celebrate this evening with a little gathering at our sister’s house. He will be spoilt rotten, we’re sure, but he deserves it on his special day. It’s crazy to think about how fast the time has gone – it seems like just yesterday when we visited him and our sister in the hospital when he was just a few hours old – but I suppose that’s just the way things go. We hope to give him some cousins in the future, to make our whole family bigger and more crazy, but for now he is the only child in the family and we love him for it!

At Home Movie Date Night

Movie Date Night

One of my favourite things for my boy and I to do on the weekends is to spend a Saturday evening with a bunch of snacks and movies, chilling out and spending time together. It’s pretty easy to set up your own at-home movie date night, when you feel like shutting everything else out and just enjoy some movies (good or bad) and pig out a bit on junk food. Here’s how our set up usually goes.

  • We prepare and set up a bunch of snack foods on our coffee table, within easy reach of the sofa, before we start watching.
  • We mostly choose food that can be pulled together super easily – popcorn, sweets, cookies, nuts and nachos.
  • Make the seating as comfortable as possible – all our blankets and cushions come out, to make it warm and inviting to camp out on the sofa for the evening.
  • All phones, iPads and any other distractions are left in another room – this is about uninterrupted time together.
  • When it gets dark, I light lots of candles, just to keep the atmosphere cozy.
  • We always pick out a movie each, just to keep things fair – it opens us both up to watching new things and it’s showing an interest in what the other person enjoys.

There are few better evenings than one like this, with good food, good entertainment and good company – it’s such a cheap, easy way to have a bit of a different night in with your other half.
