Me & Mine project | March 2017

So far, so good! My plans this year were to take our Me & Mine project photos in a different place each month. I’m shocked to report {and I know we’re only three months in} but…we’re doing it! In January we took our first family photo of 2017 in Castlerock {there was actual frost on the beach!}. In February we snapped our photos in Portrush & this month we took our family snapshots in Bangor. 

One theme I am noticing though is that, each month our photos are by the sea. But then I thought, we do live on quite a small ‘island’ and heading to the coast is a very easy thing to do here. Especially when you live in Antrim like we do.

The sun certainly had his {or her!} hat on during these photos and it was really such a lovely day. You can view the rest of the day {and the many photos I took} right here. Bangor is a gorgeous place and when your down by the marina & Pickie park; it’s so easy to spend the entire day right there.

Here are our March Me & Mine photos. Side note: Check out my husband’s face. I mean, there’s always one, right? 

In March ‘the darling man’ is loving his anime {snore}, he is on the final stretch of the third year of his university degree and is rather enjoying {a little too much} working from home.

Ellie is loving her drawing. She is currently putting together her own Five Nights at Freddy’s comic book. She is playing The Escapists on Steam and is really enjoying the Haunted Hathaways on Netflix. Or was, until Netflix took it off. That went down like a lead balloon!

Jacob is all over his football like a rash. If it’s not a football at his feet, it’s something else {and not necessarily a ball} as long as it’s kickable! He is really enjoying these later afternoons and evenings because he can stay outside and play for longer. And he is starting to dislike the realisation of him having the smallest room in the house. Oh dear! 

Annabelle is loving Mario Kart 8 and can often be found cackling manically as she whizzes by us to finish first! She’s surprisingly good, for a four-year-old! On Netflix, she is loving Zig & Sharko as well as Kate & Mim-Mim. As for playtime, she really loves her Minecraft lego, vehicles and train tracks.

As for me, I am loving the fact that I am ever so slowly getting this house into some sort of order. Baby steps! It will all be completed {one day!} but for now I am happy with how things are coming along. I am also loving this gorgeous weather we have been having lately, bring on the summer BBQs! I know I am thinking ahead but I cannot help myself! I am also really enjoying our latest Dungeons & Dragons tabletop campaign that we have started recently. I know tabletop gaming is majorly nerdy, but you know….I love it! 

I wonder where we will end up in April!

See you then!

    Matthew loves playing Mario Kart but he is actually not playing. He is pretending to play and watches me. He is not able for it yet so I can’t believe Annabelle is able to play it at such a young age. I think Matthew needs to up his game. We are games and geek freaks in this house.
    LOL at your hubbys face. #meandmine

      She is insanely good at it Janine! Sometimes she even beats me at it. I kid you not! lol! The cackles of us both when she beats me is hilarious. My husband’s a nuisance. ANYTIME you try to get a nice photo he pulls one of his famous faces, lol. x

    Please take more pics near the ocean…it’s so nice to see for those of us that are land locked. Especially me…I live in the desert. I feel like I should do that with my own family. Even though we are small, it would be nice to have pics of the 3 of us all actually together in different places. Thanks for that idea!

    Ah I love your by-the-sea photos, I wish I lived that close to the sea! I’d be there all the time hehe! Your Husbands funny faces made me laugh. xx

    Oh such a cute idea! The photos look awesome- and not to worry that they’re always by the sea- I’m jealous!
