Ah, the bump is getting increasingly bumpy these days! I'm sure I look further on than I am (4 1/2 months) but as M keeps reminding me - it's going to get a whole lot bigger than this. Great, thanks for that lol!
We've been busy looking at pushchairs, car seats, prams, nursery furniture and all the other bits & peices that we need - it's a massive job, I could not believe how many different types of pram they are and I wasn't sure how on earth you go about choosing! It's like they are talking another language half the time. Despite that, I think we have picked out the carseat, and I have my eye on a certain pram - we just need to travel to a certain shop to try it out & make sure it's easy to use and comfortable to push!
Any mums out there - tips of things you definately do need would be great, and tips on things that thye try to seel you but you really don't need also much appreciated!

The lovely Shimelle is holding an all-weekend blog party - check it out over here!
There's tons of inspiration and challenges to get your teeth into, and loads of fab prizes up for grabs too. 6am tomorrow is the deadline so get scrapping!
I've been keeping a note of the challenges and slowly starting to put together a few projects, in between enjoying the sunshine and attempting to clean the house.
This is the first one I've completed - I used Shimelle's sketch as a starting point, and also included a little bit of delicious woodgrain. We took this photo during a lovely brisk winter's walk on the beach up in Norfolk. It was only a few days after we found out we were going to be a mummy and daddy so we were feeling particularly loved up - aaaww. Yes, I am wearing earmuffs - I cannot pull off hats so these are my winter headgear of choice!

It's no secret that I love weddings. I love all the planning and preparation that goes into them. I love the pretty colours, the classic designs and the elegant shapes. I love the quirky and personal touches. Most of all I love the meaning behind the day.
This picture of my brother-in-law's wedding last year sums up why I love weddings really - happiness.
Not to forget of course, wedding photos are an excuse to go all out pretty pretty pretty on a layout!!
