Cowgirls, Classics and Constitutional Days #littleloves

We have a busy little week behind us, and an exciting one ahead... So I'll get straight to it!

Do you know what made me laugh?! I flipped back to my #littleloves posts from this time last year, and guess what we were reading?! Our favourite: Milly-Molly-Mandy! Only this year, instead of just reading it with my big girl, our little lady is joining us for all the quaint little english adventures. It is just one of the classics as far as we're concerned!

I love watching their faces light up at the stories... honestly, there is something so delicious about watching the girls get totally sucked up in a story. I'm pretty sure they'll be dreaming about tea-parties outside nice white cottages with thatched roofs tonight...


I am all about the podcasts at the moment... I've been listening to the "At Home" podcast, a collection of conversations about motherhood, homelife and education, which is basically me in a nutshell! Six women having honest chats about contemporary issues. So I'm loving all their discussions... I feel like I'm being hit hard between the eyes by all this "Screen time" stuff that seems to be doing the rounds at the moment, and they had a really interesting conversation about the pros and cons, challenges and dangers of that too. Basically, I'm just seeping in all the wisdom on this motherhood thing I can get, because sometimes, it feels tough.


The last episode of "Indian Summers" which was pretty gripping/thrilling/scary stuff! I don't quite know what we're going to do with our post-Church Sunday evenings now. We might actually have to be SOCIABLE! Shock horror! Any good recommendations on the TV drama front at the moment?!

Well, I've been in and out of my bridesmaids dress, getting it fitted like theres no tomorrow, so I'm leaving it be now until my sister's big day TOMORROW! Eeek... all three of us girls in our house are super excited about walking down the aisle with my little sister, while the boys are remaining cool, calm and collected. Jonas looks adorable in his little suit... I may just have to link up some pictures next week! None allowed just yet!

Ava, however, donned her Cowgirl gear at School yesterday for her Wild West Day. I think she makes a great little rodeo girl, and she was in her absolute element!

A Norwegian celebration breakfast... OK, the food was anything but Norwegian. I had all these grand plans for Norwegian Waffles and fresh bread rolls, but it was a school day, and in the end we had croissants, which although not remotely Norwegian are still a special treat round here! But we were all flags and fun, and listened to the national anthem and a whole lot of celebration music while we ate!

And Lastly...
Tomorrow we are all donning our finery for my sister's wedding... The girls are super-excited to be flower girls, and we're all so thrilled that the big day is finally here! We're looking forward to catching up with friends and family, and seeing Paddy and Kristin make their vows before God! What an awesome day it's going to be!

Hoping that you all have a wonderful weekend too... We're praying we get some dry weather! Eek!


  1. Love the Cowboy outfit!!
    Have a lovely day tomorrow.

  2. Indian Summers was fantastic wasn't it? It's such a beautiful and gripping programme, I really enjoyed it.
    I remember reading Milly Molly Mandy as a child and loving it, I must look out some for E as I think it would be right up her street.
    Hope you've had a good week this week too xx
