The Ordinary Moments [W/ending 8th Feb 2015]

This week started with me at work, as is usual for a Monday. My brother-in-law, who likes to travel all around the world had surprised us all on the Friday before by returning home for three weeks before he flies back to New Zealand. He spent the day with Adam and their sister at our house and when I got home we all had dinner together, which was nice. 

On Tuesday we had snow! It didn't last for very long as it quickly melted but we managed to get out early enough to take a walk in it before that happened. 

Snow makes everything look so much prettier doesn't it?

I love this picture of Ethan and I, the background is so pretty. Though, Ethan seems a bit bewildered by why everything is covered in white!

Smiles at the park. We were the only ones there which was nice and we managed to get our Me and Mine photo ready for the end of the month. :) (We're so organised this year!) ;)

These two <3 

On Wednesday we went into town for lunch and to go home decor shopping. We spent hours in John Lewis trying to decide on things for on top of our side board where the television used to sit, and we finally decided on the bits above. (Minus the vase which we already had). We've brought a HUGE television last week, which we've mounted above the fireplace and I think the living room looks so much better now. I just need to fill those frames. (I will be posting a living room decor post on the blog soon).

On Thursday we had our 20 week scan - we were so excited to see baby again and also to find out the gender. We found out that Baby #2 is a baby boy and everything looks normal and as it should with him. We are so excited at the thought of having 2 boys! <3
