Baby's Day Out!

It been a while again. But as you know from my last post a lot has changed recently.
In short, we have now moved into our beautiful new home, and life has been pretty crazy and expensive with furniture buying, bill paying and birthdays!...and it's not going to stop there! 
I am actually now expecting my first baby in just a matter of 12 weeks! 
In true Lauren style, just as I did when I decided this blog would be the perfect place to illustrate my life in Munich and ended up moving home, I have now decided it would be a great memory of my pregnancy and hopefully our little life together.

So I am now in my seventh month of pregnancy. We are expecting a little boy and words can not even describe how excited we are! I can't believe how quickly the time has passed or help but feel slightly unprepared with every blog, website, mother and aunty telling me how I should get my hospital bag ready and of course buy a pushchair and cot! - let a lone a car! Currently Liam and I cruise around in a 2 seater van!!

I started a new Instagram a couple of weeks ago as I found myself searching for other Mummys to follow, wanting to see everything from Lifestyle, foody posts, babys, clothes, maternity fashion and more, I thought it would be the perfect timing for me to also share some snippets from my experiences. So go ahead and have a little follow; I'm not completely sold on the name yet, so let me know if anyone has any suggestions?!

And Names! Yes we have been asked a million times, Do you have any names?' Yes we do...but I'm not telling!

9 months ago I left Munich and it's safe to say my world completely changed.

Not only did I move countries, I moved back home, after nearly 10 years of living here, there and everywhere. I went from independent and self sufficient to sharing my breakfast with a 3 year old and relying on my Mom to throw me out at the train station every morning. I began working in London and even moved to London (for a short stint). I became an Auntie and I met a boy. And that's not even the half of it!

I am currently sat in my childhood bedroom whilst the boy builds...yes builds our house!

So the story goes, the evening I moved home I ended up at a friends mothers wedding, bumping into a few old school friends. One said friend happened to be my former 13 year old boyfriend *excluding a few too many glasses of wine and unmemorable jager bombs* we ended up going for a drink the following afternoon. And the rest as they say is history. Well there was a sunny trip to Spain, a failed attempt to live in Australia and few wobbles in between but we are now here; a 3 week stint in Asia later and purchasing our first home together!

I have just finished throwing together a bit of a Munich hit list for a friend and got the writing itch so here I am! As I started to write I realised a lot has happened in the last nine month and this is the perfect place to record it, so expect lots of housey updates, London loving, trips and family fun!
