Second-Life Obsessions

This is all the stuff that floats around in my head but has NO place in my real life. There's no telling what will be on here, whatever i'm obsessing over in the moment.

Oh cheers! I seemed to have forgotten all about tumblr! Glad to hear you are doing well and have survived your move! I loved Las Vegas when we went on holiday! I am almost done with school. 1 more term and an internship left to go. My son is very well, thank you for asking! He’s a bit more then a year old and as tall as can be. Funny enough though, i am pregnant with baby #2…also a boy! 19 weeks along and due in August! Timed it right with the royal baby! 

Cheers Cari!

For the record, out of every picture of Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge that was snapped during their wedding, THIS picture speaks volumes on the classiness and elegance of Catherine. She showed a tremendous amount of respect to her country and to her role as the wife of a military officer by bowing her head in respect every time Prince William would salute along the parade route.
Always stay classy Kate. 


brings back all the royal wedding feels.

Let’s be real…

I turned on the news tonight and then ran around my sitting room out of excitement. My son thought It was funny and my husband thought i was ridiculous. 

Congrats Will and Kate!

First of all, apologies. I completely dropped off the face of this planet. What with university and my family and our busy lives i just haven’t had the time to update and keep up with the royal fandom! 

Secondly, i thought i would update on my family. Everyone is well and happy! My son is growing so much these days, he’s got 3 teeth now and is the most handsome little guy out there! My family also recently returned from the States! My son earned some more stamps for his passport! He did well with the travel. I was quite frightened it would be terrible but he got on well with it and slept a lot. We did the thanksgiving thing with friends in Arizona. We had a great time. We ate so much and after we played football or as you Americans call it, Soccer. We also got to go to California and spend time with some of the American Beach Volleyball players we met over the summer at the Olympics. That was a good time. But, now we are home.

Today the weather wasn’t horrible and we were able to take some family pictures before church. 

I hope this finds everyone well. I can’t promise to keep this as updated as i have in the past but i can promise to post a few things every now and then. I seem to have a bit more time in class now that we are past clinicals for this term. 

cheers xx

jewlofcarealot-deactivated20130 asked: Hi miss your posts, how's baby?

My apologies! Things have just been so busy with university. I have to keep myself away from this while i study. lucky i have a small break coming up. i have missed my tumblr family. baby is good. He’s getting so big. has if that is even possible. He’s already a big kid. He’s just said Daddy yesterday…first words. His dads little guys for sure! how are you?

I OFFICIALLY have my husband back. Even though the games have been over for a bit, he’s just now gotten to a point where he is home. He’s got about 5 complete days off of work before he goes back to help with the Paralympics. During that time, i get him all to myself. Last night we headed out of London for the next few days and went back to our home in Berkshire. With such beautiful weather i am lucky enough to be getting ready to spend it all outside today with these two handsome guys. We are thinking of doing the long walk simply so Jameson can play in the grass. Oh the possibilities!
Hope all is well! xx

Anonymous asked: What is your favorite sport to watch and to do?

oh goodness, there are so many. I am a runner, so really anything that involves running around i love. Maybe football. It’s what i’ve played the most. I used to run track and hurdles as well. My favourite sport to watch though, volleyball of any kind. I think because i never did it except for recreational and it’s genuinely a fun sport to watch.

Apologies for disappearing! I really sort of ran out of time everyday! What few moments i had i would spend on skype with my family and friends. i had an absolutely amazing time at the Olympics. I’m really still trying to process everything. The husband is helping out at the Paralympics which means our journey really isn’t done. for this i am grateful. I was already having withdraws. I miss the players and the excitement in the air. Mostly though i miss all of the new friends i made. I had mentioned earlier that i went to those Pesky Americans, misty and kerri’s congratulatory party. It was really the perfect ending to an exciting week of HGP. So many players, both male and female, were there and we enjoyed celebrating such a brilliant achievement. You sort of think those moments are it, you wont hear from these very high profile people again, but you’d be surprised how absolutely genuine they are. Received a lovely email from Misty this afternoon thanking me, Ethan and even baby for the kind hospitality we showed all the players and for bringing so many lighthearted moments into tense situations before games. Very true. Me and baby spent countless hours entertaining and talking to and even feeding these athletes before and after their games. Some were crushed after horrible losses and had just finished making rounds with the media and needed a giggle. Some were coming off major wins and needed a chance to slow down and refuel. We did that for them while they sat in my husbands medical facilities. So, it felt nice to receive a bit of thanks from such a world class athlete, and a gold medalist at that! Not to mention, my girls, Zara and Shauna, oh how i adore them…we had a lovely lunch with them today. Our hopes for them is Rio 2016, but they’ve got the rotten luck of having to sit on pins and needles waiting for sponsorship deals to happen so they can continue training full time. 

I promise more pictures after i finish uploading my life the past 17+ days but i thought it best to start with the more IMPORTANT ones…

Prince Harry. 

Yes, we got to meet him at the HGP. He was charming. VERY charming. I went to the final day for Women’s competition with my old American flatmate. With the husband hard at work and baby being minded it was very much a party for us two ladies! We first met him as he was coming in to the venue and then had a laugh with him later when he discovered our seats were much better then his. From what i’ve been told, we were shown a few times when they showed Prince Harry (i havent seen it yet, saved on my tv, will be watching to see for myself). Anyways, these are the few pictures i took of him. One doesnt want to come off real scary like by always taking pictures! Besides, we were really enjoying the games! 

More soon!

Cheers xxx

Anonymous asked: What all did you get to see at the Olympics, and will husband be helping with the Paralympics?

He will be. We weren’t sure of his participation at first but he had a great showing and was asked to work through paralympics which is much more of a challenge. I must part with my husband a little longer! I obviously saw all the events, mens and women at HGP…i went to gymnastics. Saw a lot of swimming. Very impressive. I love to swim so for me, that was amazing. Athletics. Opening and closing ceremonies, basketball, indoor volleyball, and football. So, we got quite alot in. The husband only got to see beach and indoor volleyball, judo, swimming, and gymnastics…but he was working so i dont very much call it a spectator experience for him.
