Easy and Quick Mexican Family Meal with Santa Maria #Review

One of my favourite meal growing up in the Pacific Northwest of the USA was my mother's Mexican nachos. She would put a tray of tortilla chips covered in cheese in the oven until the chips were crispy and cheese melted. She would season ground beef with Taco Seasoning Mix and put in the middle of the tray of tortilla chips. She then would add sour cream, chopped olives and chopped tomatoes on top.
My family enjoy Mexican meal night in our home here in the UK. My children love taking flour tortillas and fill them with cheese, salsa and sour cream. A plate of cheesy tortilla chips are always included also. Santa Maria sent us some of their products for one of our Mexican meal nights. We were sent Tortilla Chips, Plain Flour Soft Tortillas, Taco Seasoning Mix, Fajita Seasoning Mix (Hot) and BBQ & Grill Mesquite.

British Home Love - Week 1 Favourite Finds

Last week, I decided to create an Instagram account called "British Home Love" dedicated to my love of British home interiors design and to highlight some old and new favourite home and lifestyle Instagram accounts in the UK. Everyday will have a new theme and post a collection of photos. I will always make an attempt to give credit to the original Instagram and photographer.

2016 The Sibling Portrait Project at LadyBug Home

In 2016, we will be joining in for another year with the "The Sibling Portrait Project" that was created by Lucy of Dear Beautiful. On the 15th of each month, I join a group of bloggers to document the very special relationship between brothers and sisters. This also creates a visual timeline of how quickly our children are growing. My favourite photos are of the first photo of a baby joining a family and sometimes promoting an only child to "Big Sister" or "Big Brother".

The Me and Mine Project

I am not quite sure if Big Sister is showing off her imaginary Wonder Woman bracelets or Captain America's shield but what I do know is that she definitely her Little Brother's hero. The end of August marked the end of Summer and the beginning of new adventures for both Big Sister and Little Brother. Big Sister stared Reception this year and meant she would be away from Little Brother for 5 days a week. By the end of Summer, I think they were both ready to have a small break from each but now their sibling bond seemed have become stronger. Big Sister excitedly dashed into school with barely a look back while Little Brother calls out to her. Most days he cannot wait to get his shoes on to pick up his Big Sister from school. Once they are home again together, they can be found sitting next to each other eating a snack. There is always big smiles for each other.

Ideal Home September 2016 Favourite Finds

My first copy of an Ideal Home magazine was given to me by my husband. Within a couple days of meeting him, he know that I was very interested in interior design so he started importing copies of Ideal Home from England to me in the States. Over the years, I have shipped my collection of Ideal Home magazines across the world a couple times to make sure I had pile of magazines to review for inspiration.
Starting this September, I thought I would share with my readers a few of my favourite items for each month's edition.

The Home Life Project - September 2016

Joining Clare from Maybush Studio with her "The Home Life Photography Project - September 2016".  This monthly photography project involves documenting your daily life for one day per month.

DATE: Saturday, September 3rd, 2016

We did not join in on The Home Life Project for August because we were busy enjoying the summer holidays. We did vlog our Summer Adventures over on our YouTube Channel if you want to see where we went and activities around the Ladybug Home. The below photos are from the last weekend of Summer and last couple days before Little Ladybug (LL) heads off to big school for the first time.

2016 Me & Mine Portrait Project at LadyBug Home

In 2016, we will be joining in for another year with the "Me and Mine Project" that was created by Lucy of Dear Beautiful. On the last day of each month, I join a group of bloggers to document being a family. There is lots of photos of my husband or I with our children but rare photos of all us together. I have learned how to set the timer on the camera and every month we commit to taking a photo of the four us together.

Search #MeandMineProject on Twitter and Instagram or follow @meandmineproject on Instagram to view the monthly collection of photos.
The Me and Mine Project
I love this family photo taken at Little Ladybug's graduation from Preschool. Our beautiful little girl! She is our imaginative girl that loves wearing her super hero t-shirts and trying to climb trees or play behind the bush with her friends. She rarely wears dresses but she wanted a pink dress for her graduation. She picked out the gold glitter shoes also. With rhinestones in her hair, she still was running around with her friends and trying to the climb the trees. We were very proud parents.

Our Ideal Family Weekend Away - #JoulesExplorers

After counting down the weeks, days and finally minutes, the “Ideal Family Weekend Away” starts with locking the front door of our home and heading out for a family adventure. We feel the excitement of saying goodbye to ordinary daily life and not knowing exactly what new sights, sound and tastes are awaiting us. As Son, Daughter, Father and Mother, we all have different ideas of what makes an ideal family weekend away.
