catherinecbrown Asked by the sparkling @melia_kay to share a pic #fromthecuttingroomfloor a million years ago I made a fairy bread cake and pretty much at the whole thing myself I think the long weekend calls for a chocolate version.
Would you care to share one @tifanie_samala @reby.grace @delishbaking?

catherinecbrown Tagged by the resplendent @reby.grace to share #alistofgratitude
I think my fetching husband and gorgeous boys are a given (well, almost always) so here are five other things I am so very thankful for • I am saved by grace, loved unconditionally and freed by Jesus • The dedicated and hard working medical staff who ensured my boys came into this world safely & looked after and loved them until we could bring them home • The far off and foreign places I am yet to visit and the amazing places I have had the privilege to see already • My long suffering and generous to a fault friends who know who I am, who I really am, and love me anyway • Finally, the purveyors of all that is sweet and sugary. Ice creameries, chocolatiers, patisteries, confectioners, bakers and chefs. I'm not convinced I could survive without you •

Would you care to share your lists @my_eclectic_loves @mantastique @emmisonm @hellokatedyer @findingfemme

catherinecbrown Asked #widn by the most stylish mumma @beebees80. At the time I was perusing Pinterest and planning my 30th (eek!) Birthday Fiesta. After some investigation I found that this delicious image belongs @sugarandcloth, photo credit: @jaredjsmith

I tag @bec_whitecross @laurenebelz @deeks1989 only if they would like to share

  •   laurenebelz What's #widn stand for?! I'm intrigued... 2w
  •   catherinecbrown @laurenebelz #widn = What I'm Doing Now just a snap of what you happen to be doing at the time 2w
  •   the_evilly Ooooh fiesta! I did a Mexican cook up for my birthday a few years ago, so good. It was before the glory of Pinterest though so when I do it again it will be so much better! 2w
  •   sugarlovepapier What did we all do before Pinterest??? 2w
  •   beebees80 Love!!! 2w
  •   catherinecbrown I'm thinking taco bar, gold piñata & churros for dessert @the_evilly 1w
  •   the_evilly Sounds perfect! Mmm churros! They are one thing I've not been able to get the hang of, more practice is needed I resorted to a cinnamon flan which is pretty much creme caramel but with cinnamon. 1w
  •   wwhitewalls Can't wait to see photos of what you end up planning!! @catherinecbrown 3d

catherinecbrown Sorry for the double up - I like this edit better!

Asked by the sweetest mama with the best dance moves around @emmabenecke to share #mybestsquare_2014

It was hard to choose as there was a second birthday, a 60th birthday, the early arrival of Oliver Hamish, our first Christmas as a family of four, we've watched our boys love for each other grow, so many laughs and tears have been shared with family and friends. It has been wonderful to reflect on 2014 in pictures. (photo 1, 3 & 8 by Madelyn Holmes Photographics)

Would you like to share if you have time @mantastique @gardeniacottage @helen_anne_love @harryandthefrog @alirussellphotography @sammylee06

catherinecbrown Happy New Year // Throw confetti in 2015's face 1mon

» LOG IN to write comment.

catherinecbrown First Cinema going experience for Master W on the last day of 2014. When Paddington came out I knew it was the perfect first movie for a little boy who takes his Paddington Teddy to bed every night. I was prepared for tears, tantrums and walk outs, however he exceeded expectations (as he is prone to do when the bar is set low). O slept the entire time. W moved from Grandma's lap to Daddy's lap to Grandpa's lap and then back to his own seat, ate way too much popcorn, some of Daddy's icecream and far too much bubble juice (soft drink). Also starting my New Years resolution early - be in more photos with my boys. Even if I don't look my best or am not 100% happy with the shot. So be prepared for less pretty & more real in 2015 ... 1mon
  •   catherinecbrown Oh Emily, I used to be super camera shy but common sense seems to be prevailing - I want the record of my life to include me! @the_evilly if your sister is so anti photo let her take the pics or a quick search of Pinterest for non facial photos so you can still capture who she is without pushing her too much. Might not work but it's worth a try 1mon
  •   catherinecbrown He's calling it his special Teddy movie @helen_anne_love it's so sweet! You are such a support - love you big high (Will's version of very much) 1mon
  •   catherinecbrown Happy New Year Sara - maybe this is the year you visit Australia @frlschlauschlau 1mon
  •   catherinecbrown Thank you M! Not exactly, but I should push myself out of my comfort zone @m2matiz x 1mon
  •   squeakandsquirrel Beauties! HNY, Catherine xx 1mon
  •   emmabenecke Lovely New Years resolution, I like it a lot x 1mon
  •   the_evilly Those are wonderful ideas Catherine! Thank you so much. A couple of years ago my grandparents house burnt down and they lost everything including all but one little box of family photos. It made me realise how important they are and that I want to make sure I keep my own record. xx 1mon
  •   jenhawk123 What a great resolution, a lovely cinema experience and a fantastic name for soft drink hehe 1mon

catherinecbrown Paddington was sweetly charming and everything I hoped it would be, it whisked me back to a time when a different Mrs & Mrs Brown were at Paddington Station to pick up a bear - my bear. 1mon

catherinecbrown 7 Months // First Christmas

You increased our joy and were thoroughly spoilt. We squeezed as much love, happy and fun into this Christmas as possible. Your brother wouldn't stay still long enough for any photos.

catherinecbrown Merry Christmas from our little family to yours. Praying for tidings of comfort and joy for you all as we remember the birth of Jesus.

So I concluded there is nothing better than to be happy and enjoy ourselves as long as we can. And people should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of their labor, for these are gifts from God. Ecclesiastes‬ ‭3‬:‭12-13‬
