Photo-A-Daying: March 11 – 20

Here’s the next installment of my photos from Photo A Day for March!

I don’t always have time to really think about the photo I’m going to take. I usually have it in the back of my mind all day and then just before the light fades, or I fade and go to bed, I quickly find something to photograph.

Photo-A-Day-ing: March 1 – 10

Ok, so I didn’t manage to complete the Photo A Day Challenge in January. I simply got too sick with morning sickness and could barely make it through each day just taking care of my two kids.

But I’m back!

Fat Mum Slim’s Photo A Day Challenge is well under way now, and since the month began I have been feeling so much better.

Here are my photos from the first ten days. All images are captured with my iPhone 4S.

Missing Mexico…

It’s coming up to the anniversary of our last trip to Mexico! Perhaps that’s why I’ve been craving all my favourite Mexican dishes… like crazy! Pozole, tostadas, tacos, frijoles… oh, my! It’s lucky for me that I love Mexican food considering I’m married to a Mexican. The problem is, it’s hard to come across ‘proper’ Mexican food here in Australia. And I’m craving my favourites so much right now (thanks, pregnancy) that I even suggested to my husband that I fly to Mexico solo, just to eat the food! Ha!

As I often do, I’ve been reminiscing while looking at my photos and home movies from our trip. It was my second time in Mexico and the first time we all traveled there as a family. My boys met their Mexican grandparents for the first time, and it was our first time in Mexico since our marriage.

It was such a special trip. We really needed a holiday and despite the sleepless nights (thanks to the boys and jet lag and whatever else was keeping them up all night), it was just that. A holiday. Time away from the cleaning and the cooking, time to relax with family and time to explore as our own family.

Here are some of my favourite photos from our holiday. I can’t wait to be in Mexico again. I only wish it could be sooner.

Do you love holidays as much as I do?

A lovely lunch with the girls!

On Thursday I went and spent some time with these lovely ladies.

Shelly, Rainbow-Puss & Little Rose

I soooo enjoyed myself. Rainbow-Puss (4 years old) is always so sweet. Little Rose (10 months) slept almost the whole time I was there, but woke up in time to play outside in the garden with us. Shelly prepared me some delicious soup and crunchy, toasted bread with butter, plus a hot cup of tea and a biscuit to follow.

It was a beautiful day. The sun was shining and the boys were so nicely behaved. It was a really relaxing time for me and fantastic that I got to spend some time chatting to Shelly rather than boys, 2 and under.


I’m so glad to have family that live not too far away. And glad that my boys have their cousins to play with.

Thanks for a great lunch, Shelly, Rainbow-Puss & Little Rose!
