cooking with kids


cooking with the kids can be a harrrrd challenge. expecially after a work day. but i always try to involve them in the process. they like to ‘help’ me and see what kind of food i prepare. of course veggies are the least favourite, but since we grow our own tomatoes in the garden, jack even starts to like tomatoes! second hard part of cooking is thinking about what to make √°nd to run the errands for that. i partnered with hellofresh to show you the perfect solution for those struggles.

we received the hellofresh box last week, it saved my week! i had a lot of work to do [still working on weddings!] and it saved me so much time, not to run late errands on my work days. fridaynight after the daycare pick up we cooked all together the pasta dish with chicken meatballs, spinach and tomatoes.

we all loved it! good news – you can order your first box with a ‚ā¨25 discount by using¬†HELLO MARG. whoopwhoop!

and take a look how our cook went..


thanks to my father and sister who were over to take some pictures of us <3.

and many thanks to hellofresh for this collaboration, so my blog can actually excist. 

naar de panda’s met danerolles


sinds kort is in Ouwehands Dierenpark het nieuwe pandasia geopend waar de panda’s wu wen en xing ya te bewonderen zijn. wij kregen de kans van danerolles om de panda’s in real life te bewonderen. op het moment heeft danerolles namelijk een geweldige actie lopen: bij aankoop van drie blikjes danerolles krijg je een kinderkaartje [3 t/m 9 jaar] voor ouwehands dierenpark cadeau.

the perfect bookcase


we read the kids a lot of books, because they love it. especially before bedtime, we have to watch ourselves not reading them five books, ha! but we never had a good bookcase, so the books were wandering around our house, on a shelf, on the beds, on the floor.

my kids close


what is better than working while your kids are sort of close to you? i designed a skin cover for my laptop and case for my iphone with caseapp and look how it turned out. it makes me happy when i look at it, let alone all the compliments i get while working in a coffeebar or cafe.

we had the opportunity to go on a lovetrip together, thanks to my mom. last year we went on our first holiday together, mauritius, which was awesome. but somehow this trip to barcelona was better, we were more relaxed, more focussed on eachother and the weather was a lot better [that also helps a lot!].

in this blogpost i tell you a bit about what we have done and where to go, when you are just the two of you. but i have to say that barcelona is a suitable city to travel with the kids, with a lot of playgrounds and the beach.

ik hou weinig boekjes bij, behalve ons familiefotoalbum. maar voor jack hou ik jaarlijks dit verjaardagsboek bij. het heet Hip Hip Hoera en komt van uitgeverij Stratier. in dit boekje kun je jaarlijks een verslag van de verjaardag schrijven [samen met je kind, of niet] – en een foto plakken – zie ook de foto’s hieronder. je kunt invullen wat voor taart er is gegeten, wat voor cadeaus er zijn gegeven en wat voor activiteiten er zijn gedaan. wie er langs zijn geweest en of alle kaarsjes in een adem zijn uitgeblazen.

garden makeover


onze tuin is het ondergeschoven kindje en we hebben het in de basis af, maar eigenlijk moet er ook nog heel veel gebeuren [dingen afmaken he, dat is met kinderen toch wel een dingetje geworden]. ik zit nooit lekker als het niet mooi aangekleed is, maar sinds kort zit ik weer goed ;-)! we hebben nieuwe planten, nieuwe kussens, nieuwe aankleding, nieuwe lampjes, i love it! & het grootste gedeelte komt van Blokker!

a wild animal themed birthday party. dream of every child right? well, i hope so. at least they loved the cake. i grabbed my camera to make an impression of the deco and the afternoon. i was going for more pictures of the kids, but as they kept me entertained all noon & guests waiting for drinks, i couldn’t took more pictures than this. have a look and maybe, be inspired for your party!

our first month with a baby

let’s describe our first month with a baby in just one word: overwhelming. totally unprepared & on cloud nine is how we went into our newborn bubble. our world decreased twice in size. the feeling ‘what on earth happened to us’ all over the time. positive & negative. we had a really good start and first week. first, lets tell something about the birth.
