Welcome to the latest update from the Mother of the Bride! As I sit here writing this update, the song playing on my random rock selection is The Final Countdown - I kid you not! I was searching for how many days until the big day and that song comes on - how random!!!  (Followed …

What It’s Really Like to be the Mother of the Bride | Bridesmaids Confession

wedding, hair, planning, fiji

Welcome to the latest update from the Mother of the Bride! As you probably know by now, my MOB status has been restored with baby daughter's wedding planned for October 2017  - in Fiji!   It is a very small intimate affair with only parents, siblings, and a few close friends.  We are now looking at less …

Playing Favourites

Love my family

Playing favourites with my blog, not my children! As a parent I have always told my three daughters that I don't have favourites and I don't. They all have something unique about them and I love seeing how different they are to each other while at the same time being so similar it scares me! …

A family of bloggers

Melanie

I just want you to know that I enjoy blogging immensely. I might not be the most prolific of bloggers, the most read, tweeted or visited blogger in the world, but I am a happy blogger! As someone wise said to me earlier this week, 'The thing to remember about blogging is that there is …

Hello my name is…awesome!

Girls just wanna have fun!

Underwater smiles

On the subject of FUN: This video shows my daughters and I racing at a trampoline park while on holidays over Christmas. We're not at all competitive! I'm the little one in black just in case you can't pick me!  One daughter yells out 'I've won' as she throws herself into the airbags, one does …

MOB#2 update

Greetings fellow bloggers!  You may not know but my MOB status has been restored with baby daughter's wedding planned for October 2017  - in Fiji!   I've been told (by guess who?) that I've been very slack in keeping everyone up to date with news of this happy event.

The MOB returns

I'm baaack!   My MOB status has been invoked for the second time as baby daughter moves into the countdown zone.  And I couldn't be happier! We have a wedding planned for October 2017 in Fiji no less! And I'm told it will be a VERY small affair. So we are in countdown mode and the way this …

Vintage themed party

Outfit

Hugh's photo challenge this week is about all things vintage. I was immediately reminded of my daughter's Vintage themed 30th birthday party a few years ago. I made the decision to attend the bash which meant travelling halfway around the world from Australia to England all by myself. It was the right decision. I had an amazing …
