30 Day Snap #10 | Moon, Mouse and Church


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Confused as to what The 30 Day Snap is? Read THIS to be in the loop and join in.

Wedding Anniversary Ideas

Yesterday was our friends Mark and Clare's first wedding anniversary and so we celebrated artistically with chalk. They call each other 'Moon' and 'Mouse' (long stories) and so that explains the doodles. We ended up instagramming this and then texting, 'Check Instagram, Happy Anniversary'. We also bought them a card and had a celebratory dinner with them but I feel like the above picture is more fun. Nobody wants a close up of chinese takeout, no matter how delicious.

It was lovely to sit with them and chat about the year that's been (it honestly feels like just yesterday I spilt a vodka lemonade down my pink silk dress at their wedding, ho ho) and plan trips for the future. With Matt's 30th coming up this Winter we're a-buzz with ideas. 

We are so thankful to have Mark and Clare in our lives and living so near, they are both rays of sunshine. 

Baby Glitter at Church

In other news yesterday I had another round of playing Stressful Momma. It was a hoot. Not. I took Darcy to church and thought, 'oh lovely I'll take some really nice pictures there on my little snappy camera and perhaps some of round the building'. No. Wrong. 

Darcy was in no mood to stand still for more than a nanosecond, there were millions of people about who obviously wanted to use the path, my camera allowed 4 pictures before it died annndd I was late. Good times.

The above was the best of the bunch, it's not brilliant but it's true to life at least!!


If you are taking part in this project, tell me below! What have you done today?



Toodlepip!

  38. I love this chalk picture, makes me want to go out and chalk up the pavement by my house. I used to do it as a child and it was great fun, when we couldn't find chalk we used stones.

    I am also loving the 30 day snap. I have toyed with the idea of doing a photo a day for a year, but have never been brave enough to do it, 30 day snap has given me the confidence of choosing a photo that represents my day and what it meant to me. Maybe 2014 will be my photo a day year.

    Love Lorilee

  43. Baby Glitter is so cute! I used to love using the chalk on the patio to create the most colourful hop scotch possible, but always so disappointed when it rained. I love your blog and your Youtube videos! Never fail to entertain but also very informing! You Louise, among others, inspired me to start my own blog yesterday! Hopefully it'll develop into a really special piece of the interweb that's all mine as you say :P. I look forward to your next post! Thanks Louise!

  53. Hi Louise! That is great idea using chalk, nice and simple idea which brings child memories back. And Darcy, as usual the precious little glitter princess =)

    Today haven't done much except did exercise on bike machine. And don't know whether you going to believe it or not, I have spent more than a half a day today reading your posts from "Starting from scratch" 20/09/09 up to "Curvy girls OOTD-office drinks" 26/06/10. You might think I am crazy or stocker, but I’m not. My internet doesn't allow me to watch any videos or do anything except reading online. Therefore, I thought I’ll get to know you better by reading your older posts. And have to say it made my day.

    I just wanted to ask whether you have written a post in a blog or would write one, what kind of present to give to your fiancé on birthday and on anniversary? As I got both coming up next week and the following week.

    I know you may not read this post, as you are busy and got other things to do and plus its too late now. However, if you do I’ll be very honoured. Thank you!
