Each day in instagram, people do a photo challenge of the day. Yesterday was- a place you've been. I saw that most of my friends are such globe trotters!

Happy Weekend you guys!

Cool and Coolest

As the days get hotter, we are finding more ways to stay indoors at least till noon time. I resurrected this book given by a friend. It is a better version of a coloring book! 
 It has been my favorite gift to give to kids on birthdays or Christmas.
so Cool!

The pages have 'unfinished' sketches that your child can finish with color or more doodles... cool!
find it here

A Shameless Plug...
Come, have some!

Hello you monday.

Hello Monday we meet again.
Still struggling with the heat, thank you that it was not as hot today as it was yesterday.
I was able to get crafty and "baked" a cake (a diapercake)

I found something for my little one, since its summer time, these are perfect!
Water proof, well cushioned and leather.
They are available locally at Mother Care stores, Big and small and on Facebook.
They are the cutest functional kicks ever.

and again my weapon of choice-- coconut water!

Now that its summer vacation, I find myself so busy that ever.
I can hardly keep up with all my kids activities, ---I'm spent!
I find myself more and more wearing sandals and flat shoes, I admire those who can run around town in heels-- they are my heroes!

But not to sacrifice style....
repetto flats (pinterest)

Weekend rewind.

Last weekend was so hot, only one way to keep cool-- stay indoors with aircon!
While waiting for the sun to get less angry, we played a game... not in the computer or iPad!
A board game...
Operation =)
It did not last so long--- they were out the door after 2 games teehee..
And I resorted to this...
