10 Simple Things!

Hello everyone!!
This week I would like to introduce you all to Katie!
I love her blog and her weight-lose is such a inspiration!

10 Things that make Katie happy!!
  1. When the sun shines on a 70 degree day and I can feel the warmth, but it's not too hot that I want to run inside immediately. I LOVE sitting outside on those type of days reading, listening to music, or just thinking.
  2. People who leave positive comments on my blog or Facebook page about my weight-loss journey. It's a roller-coaster of a ride, so all the love and support is invaluable! <3
  3. Having one-on-one conversations with my 7 year-old niece. Kids are so much smarter than we think, and I'm constantly blown away by her thoughts.
  4. When I have enough money left after bills to do some SHOPPING!!! I'm a closet shop-a-hollic!
  5. When my hubby and I actually want to see the same movie in the theatre. It doesn't happen often, but when it does, it's perfect!
  6. The few minutes right before a storm. There is that brief time where you can smell it coming and the wind is blowing your hair around your face. You can just feel the "calm before the storm" and I love that feeling. Then you get to sit inside with a cup of hot chocolate listening to the storm!
  7. Horse racing in Louisville. I LOVE these majestic beings, and I can't ever get enough of Churchill Downs. It's beauty and exhilaration combined!
  8. Football! THere is nothing better than cheering on your favourite team to a SUPER BOWL victory!! GO COULTS!!
  9. Putting on a pair of pants to discover that they are officially too big! Any excuse to shop, and I love the visual reminder that my hard work is paying off!
  10. Organising things. I hate cleaning, But I will spend HOURS organising my desk, my blog, my closet... anything!

Hassle and Bussle of Life

Wow so that last few days have been pretty jam packed with fun and friends.
Let me give you have bit of a run down...


Wednesday night myself, Lisa, Ness & Luke went and saw Fast & Furious 5- Fast Five.
The movie was awesome, serious who would not like a movie with fast cars and HOT men!
This movie has my two favourite men in it... Vin Diesel & Dwayne Johnson!

After institute a group of us went up to a friends place to hang out and chat.
After some yummy home-made sorbet.
We all settle down and have some really good, deep and meaningful conversations
We asked questions of each other, hunted through books for answers
Shared each other our opinions.

Girl's Night!
What better way to spend a evening then with two of my awesome girls!
With yummy food, home-made face masks, board games, laughter,
Lounge room camp out, meaningful conversations.
I would be lost with out the two girls!

To start our day, what better way then to have WAFFLES... YUM!
After a nice relaxing morning, it was time to pack and head to YSA camp.
To start the camp off they started it with a game of flags...
Our ammo was floor bombs! Oh the fun that we had!
We ended the evening dancing away and playing board games and chatting.

This was an awesome day.
Spiritual uplifting.
So much I could say and describe about this day
But this one is close to my heart.
So for now that's where it will be safely kept.

Bright and early start to the day, with a 5:30 am wake up
We headed off to the ANZAC day dawn service
Where we remembered those who have given us their lives to protect and serve our country
And where we pray for those who are currently protecting that which we hold dear.
Later we headed off to provided some service to our local community.
We clean up a local primary school, tidied the gardens,
Put down fresh pine bark around the play equipment.
By the time that we left the place looked great!
To finish off my day I headed out to my parents place.
They have just gotten back today from Brisbane where they have been spending time with my sister and her husband, and their newborn son Ethan.
Dinner was super yummy, BBQ with sausages, bacon, eggs, mushrooms and potatoes.
Then to finish off the evening with a movie with my mum and some catching up.

All up the last 5 days have been awesome.
I have learnt so much and been uplifted.
My friends are amazing and I love having them in my life.
My family is my heart, they keep me alive.

Hope you all have a fantastic Easter!

10 Simple Things!

Happy Easter Week everyone!
I am super happy that this week is nearly over...
It's been a long week at work, but I have only one more day of stress till I have 5 days off!

This week i am really grateful for the 10 Simple Things,

Thank you everyone for sharing with me some simple happiness :)

Her blog is bright and happy, and the pictures are so cute!
She a awesome blogger who is always sharing the love around the blogging world with her blog awards.
Stop by and say hello to Shannon at Shanimal's Crackers!

10 Things that make Shannon Happy!!
  1. “The Breakfast Machine” song from the movie Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure. This song makes me happy because every time I hear it, I think of the kitchen scene from the movie, which I REALLY liked as a kid. I like this song so much, in fact, that I made it my ringtone. Now I’m not liking it as much anymore…
  2. This may sound crazy to some, but I really like to vacuum. I get happy knowing that I have a clean floor. Clean of crumbs, hair, fur, lint, dead fish…
  3. Ed Bassmaster, YouTube personality. My absolute favorite of his videos is:
  4. My cats. Sometimes Most of the time.
  5. Having an idea in my head and being able to express it creatively on paper.
  6. Oh great, another song? Yes. Yes, indeed. Why this song? Childhood memories, of course!
  7. Oh yes, I mustn’t forget Disneyland!!
  8. George Costanza. What’s not to love about him? He’s honest, he’s thrifty, and he’s hot! Plus, he’s kind of me (in male form).
  9. San Francisco. Some people don’t understand why I like it so much. I just like it, okay? Deal with it. (Ghirardelli Square, Pier 3, The Golden Gate Bridge,Lombard Street, Golden Gate Park, San Francisco zoo, The Full House house, Ripley’s Believe it or Not, Rainforest CafĂ©, The 49ers, Alcatraz (I went there on a fifth grade fieldtrip!), My Grandma Mary’s house, Coit Tower, Sea lions, Castro Street, That one restaurant I went to after graduating, that had the waiter with a REAL Italian accent, The Bush Man (and other street performers), My dad knowing every street, every corner of SF makes for a great tour guide, Anything, everything, much, much more
  10. Ambien. Good night.

Book Of The Moment...

Recently I have finished reading the book "Red Riding Hood"
The book was pretty good, I just hope that the movie is too.
The story line kept me guessing and entertained.
I like the twists in the story compared to the normal old tale.
And well the guys in the book sounds HOT so hopefully they cast the actors well.

Has anyone seen the movie yet?? What did you think?
