The Adventures of Bug and Boo


Hi there!

Welcome to my little corner of the web. I'm Rebecca - a thirty-something mummy to three sweet little girls.

After nearly a dozen years in NYC and London, I moved back to my hometown, bringing my Irish husband and our first little girl with me. A few months later, baby #2 arrived & a year after that, baby #3! My husband (whom I call "M") is the other half of Team O'Loughlin and the funniest person I've ever met. Our adventures are always full of laughter! 

I love brownies, coffee, passionfruit anything, novels filled with intense and haunted characters, cooking and baking things that are no good for diets, books of poetry, spending quality time with my little family, and trying new things. I adore anything to do with music - singing, playing, listening along - and I developed a newfound love for tea, Britpop, and clotted cream on scones during my time abroad. (And an unhealthy addiction to dairy toffees....yum!) I abhor scary movies.  

In my former life I held a senior so-and-so role at a big financial services firm but I left that world when I had my first daughter and am now exploring this life as a stay-at-home mum, with all its chaos and fun. I am still figuring out what I want to be in the next iteration of my career....plenty of time for pondering though. 

This space is where I jot down our (mis)adventures, and share our journey into a green(ish) life. I started this blog for my family and friends both near and far to keep up with Team O and I love sharing it with new readers. Thanks for visiting!! I hope you stay awhile... :)
