52 Weeks of Happy (2/52)

How are we all today?  How has your week been?  Last week was pretty good here considering it was the first week back from holidays.  We are missing Corey now that he is back at work but it is nice to be in our own house again.  Here are a few things that have made me smile this week.

week 2a

Hanging out with my mum and doing a bit of crochet.  My parents have the comfiest couch in the whole wide world and I love snuggling up in the corner with some crochet and chatting with my mum.

Starting my first cross stitch since I was in highschool.  I started this then frogged it so I could make it bigger and now I am very nearly finished.  I can't wait to share it soon.

The first catch up of the new year with my mothers group.  We have developed a lovely group of girls that I met at antenatal class and the midwives clinic who meet up once a week in a local park to chat.  It's so nice to be able to get out of the house and chat to some grown ups!

Freshly picked lettuce from my sister in law's garden.  We just happened to pop in to visit while she was out gardening and were given this little lettuce to take home.

week 2b

Pretty pastel dresses and yellow toenails are the perfect way to brighten up your day!

The day I managed to fit back into my pre pregnancy jeans was probably the best day I had all week.  I was walking on a cloud for the rest of the day after trying these on.

This gorgeous view from the surf club where we were listening to my friend play a few tunes on Sunday afternoon.  It was also pretty cool to be able to take Imogen to listen to my friend play for the first time.  I think she was a fan!

week 2c

I am so in love with our new dining set!  We have been meaning to get one for ages because we have broken a few pieces of ours and others have chips in them.  We were in Target on the weekend and saw this gorgeous set (the first set both Corey & I liked) and to make things even better it was on sale!

Spoiling my little monkey with new clothes is one of my favourite things.  I really need to learn to control myself in kids clothes shops.  The smallness of their clothes and the overwhelming cuteness make it had for me to control myself.

And it is a little bit sad how happy these last two pics make me but I love when everything is tidy and organised.  Yesterday I did a big clean and tidy out of my cupboard and came up with an idea of how to use the empty formula tins I had been hoarding.  I covered them in scrapbook paper and turned them upside down and now they hold my headbands.

So what has been making you happy this week?  Again I am playing along with Little Birdie if you would like to join in.


  1. Lovely Happy things Kat. I may have a little bit of post-pregnancy jeans-wearing envy :-) Can't wait to see your crochet & cross-stitching makes. Mel x

  2. LOVE the photos Kat! My fave will have to be of Imogen though! Is it wrong that I just want to nibble those cute little toes of hers?? :)

  3. Looking forward to seeing your crochet and cross stitch work. The dinner plate does look lovely. Great colour

  4. What a beautiful collection of photographs! All things to be happy about :)
