I know that once children come into our lives, that our paychecks tend to go to them and honestly that’s how I believe it should be! It’s totally acceptable for the children to get the majority and the parents to go without. However I know my husband is reading this and wondering when I have ever gone without and that’s because sometimes I think it is totally acceptable to treat ourselves!
Whether it be purchasing something new, getting pampered or going somewhere that we enjoy. We as adults deserve something for ourselves! My husband and I are really into spending time as a family so we like to spend money doing things all together. I enjoy getting my nails done on occasion and like to splurge on makeup and handbags, my husband also has his vices. We don’t go overboard but we do allow ourselves treats, Rhemy is our priority as are our bills etc, but we like things that make us happy too.
Not everyone will agree with me and that’s okay but I think it’s perfectly acceptable to do things to make yourself happy, even something simple such as a cappuccino before work instead of a instant coffee one morning a week. Im a firm believer that a happy house produces happy children!

Since our family is expanding we are doing a shift around in our house. We are hoping we can accommodate our new addition without completely breaking the bank.
We have decided that we are going to move into our spare room, Rhemy is going to go into our room and the baby will go into Rhemys nursery. When we did her nursery we made it gender neutral, so other then removing her name from the wall, we don’t have to do anything else.
Now comes the fun part, decorating the two rooms. Rhemy’s is easy, we are doing Disney princesses, we have purchased a wall mural and the other walls can stay white. I’ve got a beautiful bookcase my parents painted with fairies when I was a child, that I am passing down to her and I’m hoping to keep everything else minimal and fresh.
Our room is a bit trickier! I’m not sure what colour scheme I want to go with. We know we want a king size bed, huge built in robes and honestly that’s as far as we have gotten. Any inspo you guys might have for our main room, feel free to share!
I’m excited to share our progress with you all once the work begins.
Until next time,
Now as I have said before we struggle when trying to agree on baby names and while it is only early days, the same can be said this time around. I think it may become easier when we know the baby’s gender but I could also be kidding myself!
Enter the app, that I now consider my little life saver BabyName. Basically you and your partner both connect to the app and become linked. Then you flick through the names, swiping left if you don’t like and right if you do (yes, tinder for baby names!) Any matches that you find get listed so you can go back to them later.
What a genius idea! It is supposed to help prevent arguing over names, I’m yet to believe this one as I may be one who will push a bit if I find a name I love that he hasn’t matched to me. I guess time will only tell, in the meantime it’s fun and I can’t help but get excited when I see a little egg pop up on my screen to tell me a new match has been added to our list!
What did you use as your naming tool? Did you read through books, search through pages on the Internet (been there!) or did you find a little gem like this app?
