Planning a summer party for my girl

My girl turned 10 years old in January. Back then she decided that she wanted a summer party in our garden instead of a birthday party during the cold winter.

I was perfectly fine with that solution (truth be told, I’m more than okay with that solution), and these days we’re planning the party, printing out stuff and deciding on what food to make. It’s a fun mother-daughter activity.

Here’s a selection of the things she wanted to buy at Urban Outfitters for the party.
1. Swan Pool Float
2. Pineapple Ice Cube Tray
3. Corn on the Cob Skewer set
4. Pineapple To-Go Sipper Cup
5. Watermelon Beach Ball
6. Flamingo Ice Cube tray
7. Watermelon Sipper Cup
8. Flamingo Watering Can
9. Cactus light

For more inspiration check out my pinterest board Party Moments. I’ll share some ideas about the food in another post.

Things to remember on a bad day

I’ve been keeping this list for quite some time now, because I wanted to share some of it here on the blog. I’m not having a bad day today, but I’m trying to be more focused on things to do, when you feel like it’s going to be a bad day. Stay more positive and find the best in everything. happy mind happy life

1. Waking up to a clean kitchen.
2. Laughing so hard that you almost (or do) pee yourself.
3. Listening to your favorite new song over and over again.
4. Rereading your favorite book.
5. Wearing a new outfit for the first time and feeling really good about yourself.
6. Listening to thunder when you’re under the covers.
7. When you’re the perfect amount of drunk with your friends.
8. Accomplishing something after wanting it and going after it for a very long time.
9. Getting a good seat on your commute home from work, or driving home with no traffic.
10. Returning home while someone’s in the middle of cooking a delicious meal.
11. Going out to dinner with people who you have truly genuine and enjoyable conversations with.
12. Getting inside right before it starts pouring rain.
13. Putting on flannel pajamas after a long day.
14. When someone reminds you that, no matter what, you’re never alone.

I’ve picked out some of my favourite ones above. For more read the rest of the 50 Of The Happiest Feelings To Remember On A Bad Day.

On my wishlist right now

I’ve got a few things on my wishlist right now. I’m in need of music when I’m working, and I’ve been looking for the best solution. It would be so cool to be able to listen to  music while at work. I’m also shopping for a few things for our trip to Mallorca later on this summer. And with weather like this, I really want to add a few things in our garden as well. We love eating outside, and we’ve had some great nights out in the garden this year.

Yoga moments

I was trying to find a sink for our bathroom. I finally got around to buying the grey paint for the cabinets, but now I need a sink. Then I came across these beautiful yoga pictures, and I had to share them with you. I hope you’re enjoying the weekend. I’ll enjoy another day off tomorrow, and maybe go to an amusement park with the kids.

Mother’s Day – Finding the perfect gift

I’ve collected a few things, which I hope can inspire you or your family (as well as my own of course) to get the perfect Mother’s Day gift. The day is pretty special around our house.

The kids love making breakfast and decorating the table. We do the same on Father’s Day, in case you were wondering. But this year, I’ll be spending Mother’s Day in a tent serving breakfast for hundreds of soccer kids, so I guess it’ll be a Mother’s Day lunch instead.
