When we exchanged rings, we hoped our family of two would grow.
It has, into a family of 4. We're just split in half.
Two of us walk the Earth while two of us fly in Heaven.

Insta Friday April 5-12, 2014

Alrighty folks, its InstaFriday time! All photos taken with my HTC Desire 601 and edited with instagram. I'm @MamaJillaroo.

We start off with April 5, International Tabletop Day. Between housecleaning and dinner ordering, I snuck out for a bit of shopping. I'm one of a couple bridesmaids for my middle brother's wedding in August. Living 18+ hours away means there's no way I'm ordering a dress from David's Bridal and hoping for alterations to be done in time! So... off to the shops I went. I found this lil number at a local discount department store chain. (Aussie version of walmart.) I saw it on the rack, found my size and tried it on. Sold. Price tag? $35. Score.
I bought it. Sent a couple snaps off to the bride for confirmation, then went about my other shopping. I spied these at the grocery store on my way out. I went back in to the customer service desk and bought two. I make it a point to support causes and write "In Memory" on them, followed by my babies names.
I got home, finished cleaning up the house and readied the lounge room for our guests coming over. Mum and Dad joined us for some games of Carcassone and Ticket to Ride 1910. We ordered pizza and they picked it up for us. Let the board game carnage begin!
Sunday morning, Mum and Dad picked me up for church. I happened to win a chocolate bar just by wearing my favorite color, purple. Chocolate in church? Works for me!
Monday Monday.... time for Fun Day! Monthly gathering with my Brissie Sister Consultants. Bring on the shenanigans!
I was hoping my order would arrive on Monday so I could dive into my Base&Bling goodies. It arrived Tuesday instead. You bet I ripped into it and made some pretties!
On the way home from my unemployment office appointment, I was greeted with this lovely sight. A pink sunset that reminded me of my baby girl. <3 Julia Rose <3
Wednesday lunch? Tacos. Yum. Ground beef, refried beans with chiles, colby cheese, sour cream, ketchup. That's how I roll.
Once I'd finished my lunch, I decided to get into some scrapbooking with a new kit. Gorgeous.
My supplies are all over the place. I ordered this medium box and quickly filled it with all my smaller goodies. Happiness in a box. :)
Coming soon to my Studio...
Thursday calls for some quick and easy food. Breakfast/lunch of baked beans, fried eggs and toast? Just the thing to nurse a sore throat.
The hubby chose butter chicken for dinner. No naan or roti so tortillas were subbed in. Not bad. A bit spicy this batch. (Oops.) Quite good in my book. Could have used a cubed potato in there for a bit more bulk.
Newest necklace from my studio. Featuring a mixed metals look and my son's picture. Love.
#fbf (flashback friday) Lots funny stuff found on facebook.
 Friday afternoon came round and I was tech support. Helping mum get her business blog set up and running. After a quick dinner of pizza toast and tomato soup, and a very disappointing loss to the Titans, I delved into more scrapbooking.


And that, ladies and gentlemen, was my week.

Til next week....
