things i'm loving...


Linking up with Paisley Jade for Things I'm Loving...

I'm loving that I had trick-or-treaters today - a rarity in New Zealand. And, of course, I had no candy for the occasion... so, off they went with a bag of Pineapple Lumps I had sitting in a package to get mailed out tomorrow... Guess I'm off to the grocery store for more... ;-) And, quite possibly some more candy!! I really enjoy Halloween, and I'm sad it's not celebrated here like in the USA - but it is ever increasing! Now, to find a costume to put Miss G in for photos... 

I'm super duper loving that pretty soon I will meet this little bubba!! Can't wait!!!

And, I'm loving that my (3 hour!) mental health exam is over - and that I am off on (2) placement(s) til Feb!! Fun! 


Oh Lucky Day!

 I quickly checked my emails the other day and I found I had won a $100 Glassons voucher and a $50 Number 1 Shoes voucher! I found Mama Moo's blog and facebook page, loved it, entered the competition and won! Fabulous! Now to go shopping... oh, what to buy... Very exciting!!


Things I'm Loving!

Linking up with Paisley Jade...


I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something that you can be thankful for... no matter how simple it is.

I'm LOVING that one of my besties from college (Uni to kiwi's) had a beautiful baby girl!  Karina Leigh - what a gorgeous name for a beautiful girl and awesome family! Congrats Sarah & Jesse!! She's amazing!

I'm LOVING  that Auntie Trace was able to fill the gaps this {busy} week and watch Miss G! Don't know what we would do with out you!! xx

I'm LOVING that Miss G and I SKYPED with Grandma,  Great-Grandma and Uncle Dan this week! Miss G and Uncle Dan had a noise competition - very funny! {Miss G can go quite a bit higher in pitch then Uncle Dan...}

I'm LOVING the kiwifruit/raisins muffins I made this week. Yum!

I'm LOVING that I'm going to be getting out on my road bike this week -Taupo here I come! (Cycling the relay with a couple friends from netball.)

I'm LOVING the craft book I just received in the post! What an *AWESOME* surprise. Love it!! Thank you so much Cat! :)  My sewing list is getting bigger and bigger - I love it! :) 
Catalina's Cottage

I'm LOVING that I was cleaning boxes out of the garage (from when we moved nearly a year ago) and found my square silver Tiffany's ring I've been missing!! Yay! Needs a good polish, but at least I found it!

I'm LOVING catching up with girlfriends for lunch! The rain went away in time!

I'm LOVING that my cute baby girl is 9-months old! Time is moving so quickly... :)


Daffodil Farm - photos!

Last month, we had some family photos done at a Daffodil Farm in the Hawk's Bay with Lucy Sara Photography. We were so lucky, had a beautiful day and Miss G was *ALL* smiles! Here is a sneak peak...

All Smiles!

Embracing my craftiness...

Well, I've decided to embrace my craftiness and join in on a Handmade Tilda Christmas swap. I'm very excited and have already found some super cute (and yummy!) things to put in my partner's gift! 

I'll post what I did after the swap, so she can't see what I'm sending... Sneaky, I know. :) 


Finished Book

Just finished A Thousand Splendid Suns last night. ♥ That pretty much sums it up. ♥ Really, really enjoyed it. Give it a go, it's a wonderful story. ♥
