The Ordinary Moments ’16 #8 | Letting Our Hair Down
It’s been a hectic week in the Lee household. I worked an extra day in the office this week to try and make up some of the time I missed at work last week while Bella was unwell and I really missed my usual Wednesday at home with my little love.
Josh has been super busy with work and I don’t think he’s gone to bed before 1am once this week. By the time Friday evening came around we were all shattered and so ready for the weekend!
Our Saturday was spent in the kitchen baking and decorating a cake for my/our best friend Ellen’s leaving party as she is off on her travels at the end of the week and will be gone for a few months. I have baked a lot of cakes in my time, but never have I been brave enough to work with roll out icing, I’m more of a frosting kinda gal. But needs must, so we gave it a bash. Now, let me tell you, it’s SO much harder than it looks. Luckily for me my husband is a man of many talents and he got to grips with it much better than I did and between us we managed to pull it off. I was quite pleased with the outcome, I would say ‘we’ but Josh is a complete perfectionist and was convinced it looked rubbish 😉
We enjoyed a lovely child free evening giving our bestie the send off she deserved. After a few too many drinks (or Mum Drunk as my friends like to call it!) at the party, we even ended up in town, which I had been adamant would not be happening. Alas, we had fun, and bumped into everyone we knew… Including Bella’s ballet teacher, who I didn’t even recognise at first! Total criiiiinge. Am I now that Mum!?
It was really nice to let our hair down after a long week and actually act our age for once. Although it definitely won’t become a regular thing, hangovers with a toddler in tow? Yeah… not much fun! Although they do say Sunday’s are for snuggling, which is exactly what we did. 😉
Here’s a few of my favourite (and a few blurry!) iPhone snaps from our Ordinary week and our not so Ordinary weekend.
