Sunday Share #22

Goodbye Autumn...Hello Winter!
And just like that we have zipped through another month of the year. I'm not even going to mention how many weeks there are till Christmas, because that would be mean!

I have to say, it's a bit a weird posting 'Sunday Share' on a Monday (I shared my Taking Stock - May 2015 post yesterday instead). Anyway, here I am...reflecting on another week (and month), sharing extra tidbits of the happenings in my life!

What's been happening?  
I kicked off the month with Our Family Photos. Stacey Milich Photography has taken all of our photos e.g. Maternity, Newborn and most recently, One Year Later. I absolutely love them and have them proudly displayed in our lounge. I shared my #AtoZChallenge REFLECTION - reflecting on a whole month of blogging - Boy! that was crazy however I am so glad I did it and completed the challenge! I look forward to doing it again next year!

Teacher by trade - Mother by nature (the name) celebrated a Milestone Moment: Turning ONE! I had a little Giveaway and this person won it! Congratulations and HAPPY 1st Birthday to TTMN! I found some pretty awesome Washi Tape Storage Ideas, which includes my own #kmarthack. However now, my daughter has claimed the storage container for her nail polish and I have stored my washi tape collection on rods. Every week (most weeks), I like to link up with Lisa and Rabia for #TuesdayTen. This month I shared My Pet Peeves10+ Bucket List Display Ideas and What Else Happens On Your Birthday? That one was a funny post - you have to check it out and see what happens on your birthday!

THIS WEEK: Things have gone back to normal this past week for us! Yaye! I worked on Tuesday, we had Mainly Music on Wednesday and PLAY on Friday. It was nice to get out of the house and socialise with our friends. On Saturday, I attended a First Aid Course for the whole day, leaving my partner with the kids. It was his first full day with the both of them and they all survived. Woohoo! I am so proud of my partner - he is such a great dad/step-dad.

What's coming up in June? 
I have joined Michelle from An Organised Life and many others, to take part in the 30 Day Declutter Challenge. Join me as I Clear Out The Clutter. I am really excited about the challenge - it has kicked off today! Follow along on Instagram: #AOL30DayDeclutter @anorganisedlife_

We will be moving soon! I have been procrastinating a bit when it comes to packing, I have done a bit but still have a lot to do...thankfully my Mum is going to come down this week and give me hand - decluttering as we go! Wish me luck.
