Music Monday!

This week's song is...
On The Floor by Jennifer Lopez feat. Pitbull

I love songs that the beat and rhythm of the song just make you wanna jump up and dance!
Well done to Jennifer Lopez for a nice come back song! I love it!
If this song is a intro to some good dance music, then you may just have a new fan.

Enjoy everyone! Hope this song helps you get through another week of work.
I just have to get through this week of work then it's holidays for a week for me!! Hello road trip!!

Random Videos...

My friend Kat, introduced me to these videos,
Their kinda random, but funny.

Friday, June 24, 2011


I am grateful for the loving parents that I have,
They are my best friends,
They are always there for me,
They listen to me rant,
They give me advise when I need it,
They are my role models,
They encourage me,
And support me in all that I do.

There is so much there I could say about my parents,
But none of that could capture the full meaning of my love and appreciation for them.

In a week I am heading on a road trip with my mum to Melbourne to do to the Temple.
Thank you for everything you do for me.
I love you both!

Music Monday!

This week's song is...
Everything By Lifehouse

Over the past week I have been listening to the lyrics of this song and have come to love it.
I first got introduced to this song through a friend of mine Emily,
A couple of different church groups have used this song as apart of a skit that show the love that Jesus Christ has for us. 
Which are good and powerful
But I just like to sit, listen & ponder over the words.

Have you enjoy too!

It's The Weekend!

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekends,
My week end so far has been good,
Full of fun, friends, family, service and laughter.

Tomorrow I am teaching for the first time at church...
I am teaching a relief society lesson...
I'm not too keen on the whole public specking things,
But I feel prepared, feeling calm, and I know the spirit will be there to guide me.

Life is never boring and I love the little things in life that make is all the more better!

Enjoy your weekend and make the most of it!

I Want To Run Away To The Circus!!!

If I had the talent, I would totally be running away to join Cirque du Soleil.

Last night I got the go and see their performance of Saltimbanco....

And it was... AMAZING!!!

They are all super talented! From the people that design the set and costuems, to the people who create the steps and story line, to the people that perform the show!
It was worth every cent to go and see this show! And would LOVE to see more of their work.

My favourite parts of the show was the parts where they interacted with the crowd, Eddy the clown, the Boleadoras, Chinese poles, the Russian swing and the Bungee performers.
Oh I just loved it all! If you have the chance to go see it, I highly suggest you do!!

Thanks Cass for buying my ticket, best birthday/christmas present ever!

10 Simple Things!

This week I would like to introduce you to another one of my favourite bloggers.
Kelsie's blog was one of the very first ones that I fell in love with when I started my blog.
I love her classy style and flare for life!
Oh and I LOVE her bike, if only there weren't so many hill here in hobart I would so buy one!
Pop over to her blog and say hi!

10 Things that make Kelsie happy!!
  1. Forget-me-nots: I don't know if it's just the name, or the fact that I first heard about them in the movie 'Thumbelina', but I adore forget-me-nots. I look for them every time I pass by the garden section on a grocery store.
  2. E.E. Cummings: I purchased an old Cummings book last Spring (printed in the early 50s) and the pages are worn and tattered; but it's so romantic, and seeing it on my nightstand always makes me happy.
  3. Phone calls from friends: Who doesn't love picking up their phones and catching up with a friend after its been a few weeks? Live is lovely because of the relationship we have- and that always makes me happy.
  4. A good book: I just recently picked up 'Extremely Loud' and 'Incredibly Close'- and whenever I read over lines that make me melt, whether they're brilliantly written or simply resonate, I fall in love.
  5. My faith: It's funny how the older I've grown, the more important my belief and relationship with my Heavenly Father and Savior have become. It brings such peace and comfort, despite what may be going on in my life, when i rely on my faith- and that always make me indescribably happy.
  6. My bike(of course!): JFK once said "nothing compares to the simple pleasures of a bike ride"- and he was most definitely right.
  7. Cherry chapstick: That smell makes me want to fall over. I love it.
  8. Vacuum lines in the carpet: I vacuum nearly every other day just for those lines- who knew that would be suck a source of joy? 
  9. The sumer time: Fall is always my favourite, except when it's sunny and warm outside. Driving with the windows rolled down makes me feel like the possibilities for the day are endless.
  10. Blogging: haha- who would have thought? I love reading what people think and what people have to say, catching glimpses of the lives of people all around the world- and even just down the street from me. I love sharing a part of myself and my life too. It makes you feel connected and it always makes work so much better.

Music Monday!

This week's song is...
Mean by Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift, I love the lyrics of her songs.
This one is my current favourite of hers.

Listen to the lyrics...

When I was younger I used to get bullied, 
So I can totally relate to this song
I wish that I had this song when I was younger to sing along to at the top of my lungs.

Bullying and child abuse is NOT ok!
For those people out there who are the victims, 
hang in there, life does get better!

101 Things That Make Me Happy... Part Two:

  1. Adrenaline: Love the feel of my heart beating a thousand miles an hour! I love the high it gives. In the past I have enjoyed skydiving, motorbike rides, abseiling and a number of other things. Addicted to the rush!
  2. Fires: Love a cozy warm wood fire place, curling up on a cold winters evening, reading a good book. Also love big bonfires, add good friends and music, always a good evening.
  3. Treehouse: Always wanted one when I was young... and still do want one!
  4. Live performances: Love live musicals, my favourite is 'Wicked' and 'Phantom of the Opera', never seen 'Phantom of the Opera' live but my mum has and she said it was amazing, and I love the movie so much! I also love comedy performances and plays and also live bands and dancing.
  5. Gilmore Girls: I that show! I love Lorelai and Rory, I love their relationship and how they are so close and just how they banter with each other and others.
  6. Bargains: Who doesn't like a good bargain! I love when you get to the check out and get the nice surprise that it's cheaper then expected. I love discovering cute little things that are cheap. I just love bargains, plain and simple.
  7. Nature: Wow so many things that I love in this one, here are a few... rain, autumn leaves, light and fluffy snow, warm sun shine, fluffy clouds, rays of light through clouds, rainbows, thunder and lighting, spring, trees, pretty flowers, green healthy grass, full moons, shooting stars,  tornadoes. Ok so I know that tornadoes shouldn't make me happy, that they cause a lot of harm and destruction. But they just amaze me, they are so powerful and unpredictable, and wow... i don't really know how to explain it.
  8. Warm Clothes: Love the feeling of freshly washed clothes that have been taken out of the clothes dry machine and put stair on. Love it even more on a cold winters day... mmm so warm!
  9. Home Cooked Meals: I haven't lived at home for the past 5-6 years, but I still love going home for one of mum's home cooked meals, there is nothings better then a meal made with love by someone else.
  10. Movies: I love just chilling out and watching a good movie. I have a pretty impressive collection. It's a good way to zone out and forget for a hour or two what is happening in your life at that moment and relax.

Quote of the day...

We Heart It

Picture credit
Today, 2 years ago,
I made a decision,
I looked at my life,
& decided that I needed to change the path that I was on.
That I was not happy,
& I deserved a better life then I was living.

Today, 2 years ago,
I turned my life upside down,
& inside out.
I reviewed every area of my life,
& made choices that will effect my life forever,
For the better.

Today, 2 years ago,
I started one of the hardest & longest trials of my life.
I had no idea what was install for me,
But I knew that the end goal will be worth it,
No one ever going to be easy.
I will experience my very lowest day,
& I will experience my happiest day possible.

Today, two years ago,
I started to break bad habits,
I quit smoking & drinking.
Which was the blocker of a lot of emotion stuff.
Smoking and drinking made me numb to what was going on with me and my life.

Today, two years ago,
I returned to the faith that my parents raised me in.
I returned to church,
I continually work on my testimony on the gospel.

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (mormon)
I am non-smoker
I am non-drinker
I am improving my fitness
I am getting fit and losing weight
I am improving my health
I am improving the relationships with my family members
I am working on opening up to my friends more
I am working on becoming a better person.
I am developing my career
I am working on my anxiety disorder

I am the happiest I have ever been!!

The past 5 years have been the hardest of my life, 
The past 2 year have been a different type of harder then the 3 before it.
But all the trials I have been through have taught me so much
I never regret a single thing in my life
Because they have made me who I am,
And where I am today
And for that I am grateful for!

There are a handful of people that with
their support, encouragement, advise,
& a shoulder to lean on.
They know who they are,
And become of them, they have helped my get where I am today,
For that I will be eternally grateful for you!

Music Monday!

I love music!
I listen to it all the time.
On my Itunes I have over 9,000 songs
I have a wide range of music from opera, to pop, country to rock.
I love music as it can change your mood in a instant and can hold so much meaning.

So every Monday I am going to be sharing with you the song of the moment in my life.
And please feel free to make suggestions or share your favourite with me.
I love finding new music!

This week's song is...
Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO

The reason I picked this song this week is because every time I hear this one, it makes me just want to get up and dance! And well it's Monday, and this month at work is one of the busiest and I need motivation, 


Anyone have any suggestions for upbeat music for gym work outs??

I'm Back!!

I've missed the blogging world over the last few weeks, but I needed a break.
After being run down over the last few weeks,
It finally hit me and i got sick.

But the break has given me time to think about my blog and what I want to do with it.
Reflected back over my blog and have decided to make some new blogging goals...

-Be more personal... I am not a very trusting person and because of that I close people out, it takes a while for people to get to know me and for me to let people in. But I want to let people in a bit more, and hopefully I can do that through my blog.
-Take more photos... I love photos, but always forget to take them, I used to think that if I was always worried about taking photos, that I would then miss living the moment. But looking back on times when I have taken more photos my opinion has changed, because by me taking photos in that moment means that I can re-live that moment again so much clearer through photos, then just the memory alone.
-Get to know more bloggers... There are so many people out there that have such a talent for blogging, they are so creative. I love reading their blogs, they inspire me so much! But I am always to scared and afraid to contact them, sure I'll leave a comment here or there, but I always think to myself, i'm a no body, just a little blogger, why would they want to read a email from me. But I am going to try and make some blogger friends.
-Be more organised... I want to organise my blog, have some order to it. I also want to finish designing the layout to my blog, it's been a slow progress so far, learning bit by bit. I also want to make a blog button. I know how to make them as I made one for the "10 Simple Things" project. I just don't know what I want my blog button to look like. I also want to have my posts organised and ready to go, instead of just having to do it at the last minute and ending up being late. (in particularly my 10 simple things posts).

They are some of the main things that I am wanting to do, fingers cross that I can achieve them!
Any advise is welcome!

Love Autumn time!
