March: The month that was, according to my iPhone

I mean to do this every month, reflect on the month just gone by… but somehow it whizzes by faster than I can manage to keep up. But today, I grasped it, and here it is. The month of March, according to my iPhone.

1. L is for…
Lunch. Sometimes when Lacey is at preschool, Hubby and I like to sneak out for a cheap $10 lunch. It’s the upside of having one that works shift-work and me working from home.

2. I made this!
My chocolate coconut cake. You’ll want to make it. Recipe here.

3. Key
This is one of those cheap toys that you get for free with those expensive kid magazines. Well, expensive for what they are. And yes, I’m a sucker for buying them.

4. Lucky
I can’t even begin to explain how much rain we’ve had this year so far. I don’t know if it’s normal, but it rained so much. This day we had sun and it felt… lucky.

5. Under
And because of that rain the umbrella is kinda necessary.

6. Chair
These are from my favourite place on the coast, QT. So stylish that I want to live there. Forever.

7. Fear
I kinda fear anything with wings. You don’t want to see me when one of these things pops up unexpectedly. It’s not pretty.

8. Favourite
When Hubby is on night shift, Lacey and I will cuddle up and do as we please. Sometimes it’s movies, or music – but always cuddled up in bed early.

9. Faceless self-portrait
You’ll be happy to know that I had my roots done last week. Bad hair!

10. I want…
{15 minutes or so of calm}. Doesn’t everyone?

11. Important
Lacey wants to be an ambulance ‘girl’ when she’s older. It’s a pretty important job.

12. In the distance
We are lucky to live in a beautiful part of the world. Rainbows appear to be right on our doorstep.

13. Sound
I know people often forget they’re pregnant after the first baby, but I’m so aware of this little person. Hearing that little heartbeat on this day was magic. I never get sick of it.

14. Tasty
We were on the cruise this day and we had a little cookies and cream cheesecake. It was delectable {even though it doesn’t look it!}

15. Explore
The cruise was perfect for Lacey because it was all pretty much safe for her to explore. She loved it.

16. 9 o’clock
This was such a big day. Our ship docked at Moreton Island, we fed dolphins and then headed back in to see the end of the circus show. Awesome.

17. Green
The faux grass on the ship.

18. Shoes
Back home again, and into the rainy weather {!} it was time to break out the gumboots.

19. A sign
This sign is in my living/dining room. Most people think it’s temporary {because of the tape} but I think they don’t realise just how cool fluro pink washi tape is!

20. Clean
Sometimes you just have to pile up some things and clear the surfaces and the house is clean {or so it seems!}.

 photo IMG_8880_zpsf04bd429.jpg
21. Working
Sometimes I get some pretty cool things in the mail {less now than when I lived in the City}. This day I got a beautiful bouquet of goodies for the baby and a bus made of chocolate {which I can proudly say is pretty much still in tact in the fridge}.

22. About me
{I am: female // 32 // married // a mama // with one on the way // happy // a blogger // a freelance writer // keen photo-taker // a dreamer // hopeful thinker // cake enthusiast // disgruntled maker of beds // trashy TV watcher}

23. What I do for fun
I love heading out and exploring. On this day we went to a nearby coastal town, visited the markets, tried some new food and hung by the pool at my Ma’s new place.

24. Up
I love to look up. This is through a tree in my yard.

25. In your drawer
I keep cheap jewelry in my bedside table. Don’t try and rob me. It’s not worth it.

26. Something you did
I bought Lacey this sweet little dress for her birthday party.

27. Pair
On another one of our cheap lunch dates. I’m craving real sushi {sashimi? Yes, please!}. But I settle for tempura and hot goodies instead.

28. In the mirror
On our way down the coast.

29. Goodnight
I need to get a wind-down routine that includes books, not TV. Working on it. {Must buy a lamp first!}.

 photo IMG_9125_zps46ad5f60.jpg
30. Relax
I never thought these words would come from my mouth {or typed from my fingers} but I actually like to garden. It was something I vowed I’d never enjoy. So far I’m only into weeding and I’m sure it will get old, but it’s a start.

31. Stuff
Stuffed. Poor little Lindt bunny. {And oh boy, this made me feel sick for a whole day}.

How was your March? What was the best and worst of the past month for you?

  1. Very cool recap! I just started making my ‘Photo a Day’ monthly collages and have put them in a separate album for the same purpose, to look back and reflect. My family and friends understand how much I enjoy participating and I’m aiming to get this whole year done , collaged and printed into a book. A new focus!…….fingers crossed!

  2. You made all these with your iPhone? That’s amazing, great quality! If I try that with my phone (samung ace), the results are horrible.
    I always put all of the pictures in one folder and at the end of the month, I make a collage out of them 🙂

  3. I love this! Great post! It’s nice to have a little peek into another person’s life through a picture a day.
