Four Years, Two Babies and Six Dogs


I don't think I ever shared this picture on the blog but this is our 4 year wedding anniversary shot! I took an Instagram on the same day but both kids were looking grumpy...we actually took a LOT of pictures to make sure we got at least one we could use and this was the clear winner! (Even if Eduardo still looks like he's going to beat someone up!). Sometimes I can't believe how much has happened in the last four years...I love our little tradition of taking a picture every year especially because you can see the progression of us going from newlyweds to parents! I'm even pregnant in two of those shots :) 

This morning Jonathan went into London to begin the procedure of getting a hair transplant. He was both nervous & excited at the same time (probably more nervous though!) and I had to bring all six dogs to the vet for their vaccinations...in my new car which I had never driven before. Err, you can imagine how that went down!! I don't even know which buttons mean what yet so it made for an interesting morning that's for sure! Thankfully all the puppies were fine and healthy which is the main thing. I then filmed a video (which you can view below!) before heading into London to pick Jonathan up from the hair clinic. Poor thing is on so many meds and it looks sore :( But it will be worth it in the long run...they do half today and half tomorrow. The half they have done already looks amazing and makes the world of difference! I feel like he's going to look like a teenager when they're finished with him! 

We are currently staying in a hotel in London for one night so that Jonathan can get an early start tomorrow. It's funny because as much as this hotel room is super organised and clean, there are no toys or kids' clothes/suitcases to unpack and you would think it would be much more relaxing & stress free, it feels so empty without them :( Being a parent is so conflicting sometimes. You think you need time apart (and you DO!) but then when you get it you miss your children like a hole in the head. I can't wait to see them tomorrow! 


On a totally unrelated note, here's my Bath & Body Works haul of what I got when we were in NYC!  As you can tell from the thumbnail, I was very excited about this. I hope you enjoy!

  3. Every time B and I get time away from the kids, we enjoy it for about…5 minutes, then miss the kids so much! Enjoy your time away! Very excited for Jonathan!

  4. I don't think you mean you miss them like a hole in the head! That means you don't miss them haha! I always strive for 'one night off' or one where it can be just me and my Husband but, as you say, you just miss the kids! You're both fantastic parents and I love watching your little family grow :) Watching your vlogs makes me (a 29 year old, married mum of two) very happy! Thanks :)

  5. To say you miss someone like a hole in the head means you DON'T miss them. It's sarcasm because no one wants whole in the head! LoL But I knew what you meant ❤️

  22. I love that I have been able to see your family grow and I am so happy for you for all that you have accomplished and for your beautiful family.

    Your blog and your videos make me so happy and I always feel myself smiling when I'm done reading/watching so thank you for that!

    Please give Jonathan my best wishes, it seems like a pain now (literally) but we all now how worth it will be and I'm so proud and happy for him to be doing something that he really wants to.

    I got my calendar a while ago and didn't know as my parents have hidden for Christmas! I am so excited to get it now, I can't wait!

    If you have a bit of free time whilst relaxing in London (in must be heart-breaking without the kids but we need some time to ourselves every once in a while (not that I have kids so I wouldn't know but even so)), it would mean the world to me if you could check out my blog: http://abritishbrunetteblogs.blogspot.co.uk/

    Thank you to you and your wonderful family for ALWAYS making my day :) xx

  23. Hey, I live in America and even I act like a giddy school girl when I go to Bath and Body Works! It has been a staple since I was a little girl. When they have their massive sales it is insane! haha And I love that you guys take these pictures every anniversary, love the tradition and it will be so cool to see them all up on the wall some day :)
