Things I'm Loving: AUCKLAND!

Linking in with Meghan for this week edition of 

Last weekend, we loaded up the ol' Suby and headed up to Auckland for a whirlwind weekend of FUN. 

It was my sister's 30th birthday celebration and we headed up to the Mexican Cafe for a fun family gathering on Sat eve. 

Miss G LOVES Mexican food!! 


We had a table(s) of 20 - complete with 7 kids! (4 under 3!) Excellent food, great atmosphere and AWESOME company!

Headed north of Auckland for some fun with my absolute favorite English family. 
Loved catching up with them! 

Miss G loved Dinky! (But was too scared to ride!)

My favs - Debbie and Guy!

Tegs and her gorgeous horse! 
My Bro was in town for 24-hours of fun - and we braved to rain to hit the Auckland Zoo

Chasing a 2-year-old is not an easy task! ;)

The awkward moment the emu attacks you?

"Hurry, there's more animals!"


Toured a bit of Auckland city - mostly got lost and couldn't find parking. Felt like a bit of a hillbilly. ;) 

Uncle Dano and the girls. (Miss G's nickname for my bro.)


No one was playing the game with me! ;)

Things I'm loving- April!

One of my goals for the year was to blog a few times per week... Um. Unrealistic - I'm a bit busy. BUT, now that I am writing an assignment, I *obviously* have some free time. Ok, not really. Procrastination much? It's my LAST undergraduate portfolio. And, it's due on Monday. And, it's on cultural safety. Which, of course, is very, very important in healthcare, but... not as exciting to write 3K words on...

Anywho! Here's what fun I've been up to so far this month... 

 Hen's Night out! Charlie's Angels!
(Everyone dressed up with the letter "C", as the brides name is Catherine!) 

Wedding this Saturday! CAN. NOT. WAIT. Follow me on Instagram - I'm sure I'll post. 

Perfecting our pose in the Palmerston North Square!

Having fun with friends in The Plaza! (How cute are they!?!?) 

Hauling silage with daddy!! 

Tomato harvest. Yum! 

Helping with wood! NEARLY time to light the fire!
