Friday's Fancies

Happy friday everyone! I don't know about you, but I sure am glad this week is almost over. It's been a crummy one in this household with both kids sick. My husband has been gone for the past month now for work. He's due back home next week but the entire time he's been gone I've been crossing all my fingers and toes hoping that neither the kids nor I will get sick. We had a good run, we almost made it. 

For anyone following me on Facebook, watch your news feed because I've recently discovered what a great outlet it is for sharing collages of new trends and current obsessions. Just let me know if I start to get a little overboard.

So as it turns out, this week's friday's fancies is all centered around food. What can I say, I do like to eat. Hope you have a great start to the weekend and enjoy the sunshine while it lasts. xx

I have only just discovered these little doughnut peaches and am kicking myself for not trying them earlier (obviously never quite mastered how to 'not judge a book by it's cover'). These little peaches are quite genius. It's flattened shape means you can walk around snacking on them without making a mess. I know I know, hastag firstworldproblem. 

Starting the day off bright and cheery with a rainbow breakfast treat of fruit loops, organic yoghurt and organic strawberries. I am constantly on the lookout for ways to reinvent the most mundane meals to satisfy my picky eaters.   

Could not resist taking these adorable chopsticks home with me. Tried justifying it by telling myself I will start my kids off young. It has not worked yet. My two year old still eats with her hands.

My sister is quite the master baker. How cute are these cupcakes she recently made for a baby shower!?
She also made the adorable three tiered birthday cake for my older daughter's first birthday last year.  

Savouring as much fresh fruit as I can before the end of summer. It's been a nonstop rotation of strawberries-cherries-peaches in this household.

This is summer I have also discovered the doughnut peaches here in Luxembourg. I had never seem them before and found the shape a bit strange at first. It turned out they were very handy to eat; I like them now. Have a great weekend!

Hope and praying your two kids is well now.It's very hard to be on your own with two kids on the loose so I'm also praying for your good health.

These photos are all great. I remember only one of my son among my four kids who wants to eat fruit loops. I also agree that you should train your kids with chopsticks, the earlier the better. All three of mine doesn't know how to use one and I'm quite frustrated that I don't train them when they're still young, anyway I have still my youngest to train so don't loose hope , right? I know my dad will be. proud of her in doing such haha.What a cute doughtnut peaches you've got. I only see one now,I really live in an old age. lol

Have a great weekend dear!
