Behind the blog: This totally happened in January

Fat Mum Slim /

I thought that each month this year I’d share a little bit {in photos} of what happened behind the blog. So this is what happened in January…

We went to the beach. A lot.

Poor Bronte hasn’t had as much exercise as she should have since having Luella, and we realised that we’d been feeding her twice as much as we should have {I was measuring it wrong}. I’ve always been so strict with her food because I didn’t want her to get overweight like our family dog was. Operation get-Bronte-back-in-shape has been good. She’s almost there!

Hubby went out on the stand-up paddle board. I’m determined to get on one soon. SOON.

Lacey brought me roses {well, quietly asked my Lil Sis if she would help her}. Do you think it’s a reward for cleaning up her room over and over again? {See this video I made for evidence}.

I shopped at my favourite markets. Is it sad that it’s my favourite part of the weekend? {Also, I may need to get a life}.

And I met this strange looking guy.

We took a little staycation. We had high tea at the Marriot on the Gold Coast.

And then stayed for two nights at the QT.

I might have loved not cooking dinner, not having to clean and just being a little bit freeeeeeee.

I was sent these sweet jeans from Baby Gap and some sweet shoes from Freshly Picked.

IMG_6763I got some happy mail from Finland, a beautiful book for my recipes. {Thank you Tiia!}. I vote Finland for the cutest stamps in the world.

IMG_6713More Happy Mail arrived. An invite for my sister’s wedding.

Speaking of happy mail. I’m sharing some exciting news on the topic later this morning.

I may have searched for inspiration/affirmation in the book section of Big W.

I started to wonder if I actually spell stationery wrong. I was always told it had an E for envelope. Am I right? Wrong?

These cousins grew bigger, and changed. One started eating and crawling, and the other isn’t far behind. Also, they totally upped the cute factor.

I carried a giant watermelon, strapped in the front seat of my car. Watermelon juice anyone?

My best bit? That time away with my girls, my sister and her niece. We had massages, ate good food, walked on the promenade and just relaxed {it’s hard juggling newborn/work/school holidays}.

How was your January? I’d love to hear the best thing that happened in your January, what was it?
