I heart my body

weheartlife.com
There's a beautiful movement happening every year thanks to WeHeartLife.com called 
I HEART MY BODY
I've never seen so many wonderful, positive posts written by real women with real bodies and I LOVE that I'm joining in this year.

These are a few snaps of my body over the last five years.

In that time I had two babies so there have been some significant changes to my body.

Here's what I love about my body:

1.  I have great legs
2. I have beautiful long hair
3. I have a bright, happy face
4. I have pretty hands

Sometimes I forget the things I love about my body, so it's good to write them here. It will remind me to:

Stand tall & stop slouching
Walk & sit gracefully
Moisturise
Look after my hair
Get more sleep
Be proud of myself
Be a healthy role model to my girls

What do you heart about your body?

When you're not looking..


Look what happens when your back is turned!

Today I heard Sophie talking quietly in the bathroom while I was putting baby Georgia to bed.. not too worried as toilet training has generally been going really well.

 Then I saw this...

the poor tree..

I went to find Sophie and ask her about it, only to find her innocently doing yoga in the lounge room..

What? No, I was here all the time..

Looks like we'll be doing some sort of toilet paper craft tomorrow!

Luckily, I found some great ideas after searching on Pinterest - check them out here!

Has this ever happened to you? Tell me your worst kids-and-toilet-paper story :)

How often do you say these things at your house?



So baby Georgia is getting more & more grown up every day!
She's gorgeous (of course!) but I'm finding myself using these phrases on a regular basis:

  • "No touching please, just watching.." (TV)
  • "That's not for eating, that's for playing.." (any toys)
  • "Chairs / beds / lounges are for bottoms, bellies or backs - NOT for standing on.." (furniture)
  • "Foot off the table please" (you guessed it..)
There's a reason we call her Cheeky! Or maybe she's cheeky because we call her that... chicken & egg?

I'm going spooky this year..




This year I'm getting into Halloween at our house :)

That's right, Halloween - even though I live in Australia.

I know not everyone thinks we should embrace it, and it's not a tradition over here, blah, blah, blah ;)

I can't lie - I'm in it for the fun factor. The craft with my kids, the dress ups, and maybe, just maybe, a couple of spooky home made treats!

We won't be trick-or-treating though, mainly because my girls are a bit young, the neighbours aren't really into it, and I'd be too tempted to eat Sophie & Georgia's lollies anyway..

I'll be joining in on Dannie's Halloween Blog Hop every Wednesday, so if you want to get spooky with us, you are totally welcome xx

This week I've dressed up my profile pic thanks to Pickmonkey.com!

This is the standard pic I use on almost everything online, especially stuff for Beautifully Organised.

Here's the before:



And here's the after:



Love it!

So tell me, are you doing Halloween this year? Do you think we should in Australia?
