4 Tips to Fail at Potty Training

Lil Mister waited so long in the bathroom to potty he
climbed off and fell asleep!
All mothers will admit at some point that their children are the best thing that ever happened. Don't get me wrong I agree fully! No matter how bad my day is they can always manage to turn it around with a simple hug or kiss! However, there have been some downs (way, way downs) that were so bitter, they made the sweet almost break my heart! You know we've all been there!

Parenting is a roller coaster for sure! Some days I can't imagine bed time will ever come and other days I'm trying to find excuses why I can break my own rules and keep them up! However, one of the greatest things (and hardest things) about parenting is how much they have to teach us! It is unbelievable how much I truly learn from my kids!

Wordless Wednesday: Sleepovers

This weekend I had a "sleepover" with a friend and her kids here in our new town! Both our men work for the same company and were gone Saturday for a stock take at another branch. To be honest, I was livid with jealousy as they were back in our old town with all our old friends! But rather than stay home, we decided us wives would ban together!

The oldest daughter was in high heaven as she got to do my makeup, nails and hair! What a sleepover it was!

Tuesday Tunes: Let it Rain

There are a few things happening in our lives right now and it is taking a lot of faith from me to listen and follow the Spirit. I know though the benefits of the rain to wash away and re nourish dried soil. So I'm following Christ and allowing this to be my song of faith.

Am I Teaching My Kids To Be Rude

One day a few months back, Lil Mister was visiting with Ouma. It has taken me a few trips to get used to this but over the last 8 months (since he spent his first overnight with Ouma), I have adjusted and learnt how special this time is for them.

After this particular visit, Ma came along to bring Lil Mister back. We were sitting outside enjoying coffee when she shared what was to me quite an amusing story!

Where Ma stays she has a friend whom she had taken Lil Mister to have coffee with. While there the friend kept, well for Lil Mister, pestering him. To the friend, she was simply being a Tannie. She had offered him cool drink and sweeties and asked him if he wanted to play this or watch that. Lil Mister sat however with a scowled expression on his face, saying no thank you, crossing his arms and shaking his head.

Tuesday Tunes: Before He Cheats

Before you get any ideas, there is nothing wrong between Hubby and I!! However, I've noticed a few friends going through some things lately. Let's be honest, it isn't just men who cheat but this song describes perfectly how I'd want to react...not just for me but on behalf of my friends whose hearts have been so hurt! Let Carrie Underwood take it away!

Let's party and grow our blogs!



PLEASE NOTE: It has come to our
attention that there are more than just a few people who are linking up
and not bothering to follow the hostesses or anyone else. We love bringing this party to you each week, and we
take the time to follow (and leave a comment for) each person who links
up with us. Following back is just the right thing to do. So please -
each week, make sure you're following your hostesses and also follow
the two people linked up before you. If you're already following them,
then please find two others to follow.
The party is only successful if everyone participates. It doesn't matter if 100 people link up if only 10-20 are following the link-up rules.





We love
seeing our "regulars" link up each week - you guys are awesome! We also
love seeing new bloggers - and we need new bloggers each week so that we
all can keep growing our following. Everyone try to tell at least one

6 Summer Time Inspirations

As the winter is finally winding down here in South Africa (I'm bracing myself for one more cold front), I feel myself getting amped for summer!

For me, summer embodies everything I love. From the warmer temperatures to the more sociable people all the way to the unplanned camping trips. I love the freedom summer brings both in wardrobe and events as well as the comfort of a big glass of sweet tea and a new book! Summer is filled with laughter and memories; braai's and pools! Honestly, I can't wait!

That way if there was a previous recipe involved...you can check it out! You can always find old meals on the Recipes page!

Last weekend, C and L came to visit us as a spur of the moment decision! I can't even begin to describe how amazing it was to have these two people so close to our hearts in our home! I had missed them so, so much!

Saturday, Hubby decided he would treat us with his amazing bunny chow! It's an Indian Curry based meal that comes mainly out of Durban. I decided while we waited for this, I was going to whip up some guacamole and salsa. I've shared my salsa recipe before so today I bring you the guacamole!

Wordless Wednesday- Weekends with Friends

I had a fabulous weekend as C decided to make a last minute trip to us! It was late when they got in Friday night but of course we had a braai, followed by amazing food and chats on Saturday and a night out as they wanted to treat us! I am so blessed to have her as my best friend and it was so relaxing to feel so at home! From the moment they stopped here, everything just felt normal!
