  3. Life Experiences: I love listening to the different life experiences that people have, everyone come from a different walk of life, everyone has different but yet the same life trials that they go through and it is always interesting to hear their stories and to also hear their advice too.
  4. Long Conversations: I love having long conversations with friends, it is always interesting the different subjects that come up, and the things that you learn from each other.
  5. Randomness: Random evenings with friends, it's the spice in ones life, it is always the most fun, full of lots of laughing, so much you end up crying and your cheeks and stomach hurt!

  7. Spring: This month has been the first month of Spring for the year, and I love seeing the new born animals, the bright new plants and flowers, the weather starting to warm up! Oh how perfect spring is!
  8. Hot Chocolates: I am always happy with a discover a place that can do a really good hot chocolate, lucky I have found a really nice one just near work, and have been told about another place in town that I have to check out this weekend! I alway LOVE curling up on a cold winters day in front of the fire place with a good book and a hot chocolate in hand!
  9. Gossip Girl: Currently catching up on the TV series and would have to say that I am still loving it and can't wait to watch what is going to unfold in the next episode.

My life would be dull with out them,
They bring a spark into my life
Full of happiness & laughing
Spontaneous & random evenings

Their examples & influences in my life,
Make me want to be a better person.
Because I know them,
I have changed...
For the better!

No matter how near or far they are...
They make my life extraordinary!

Music Monday...

This week's song...
Mr. Know It All by Kelly Clarkson

I'm glad to see that Kelly is back,
She has been pretty quiet lately.
I love her music, 
It's the type of music you want to sing with force at the top of your lungs!
And this is one of those types of songs for me!
And I can think of a few people I would love to direct this song to!

Hope you enjoy!

Sweet Romance!

The other day Alycia from Crowley Party shared a cute little movie that I have just been dying to share with you ever since I watched it.
All I am going to say is that I LOVE this short film, 
I hope that some day a guy will make that type of effort with me, 
& accept me how I am too!

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

My collection.
  1. Lip Balms: I am a tad bit addicted to lip products! I never go anywhere without some for of lip balm. I have a number of different varieties, as you can tell from the photo above! There is one or two missing but you get the drift. I am also starting to get into lip sticks and stains.
  2. Nail Polish: I love painting my nails, when I get bored of it I can change it in a heart beat. At the moment that happens once a week. I have a nice collection of colours that are slowly growing. I love my bright colours. At the moment they are painted bright pink on one hand, bright blue on the other hand!
  3. Pinterest: Over the past week I have fallen in love with Pinterest and now I am addicited. I love all the amazing ideas and photos that they have on their. Give me heaps of inspiration of the things that I can do in the future, I am already working on one project inspired from Pinterest. If your not a member of Pinterest I strongly recommend you come and join! 
  4. My Hair: Over the last few years I have come to love my curly hair, more so this year I have treated it better and looked after it. I love playing with my curls and the different hairstyles that I can come up with without much effort at all. I also love that when I feel like a change, a different look, all I have to do is straighten it!
  5. Scrabble: I love the game and I love the scrabble art work that is around these days from scrabble canvas to necklaces made from scrabble tiles. I have found lots of cute scrabble things on Pinterest.
  6. Fresh Fruit: I love fruit freshly picked from the tree or bush. Some of my favourites are cherries, strawberries, apricots and so many more!
  7. People Watching: I love sitting down somewhere to enjoy a hot chocolate and just watching the world around me. Seeing how people act around me, what they are wearing, how they are talking, habits people have.
  8. Nice Smells: I love the smell of vanilla, I also love the smell of food cooking, fresh herbs being cooked, the smell of a BBQ on a warm summers day, a house smell so good after something has been cooked. Well that is if you don't burn it!
  9. Bright Colours: I think the best way to make your day that bit happier is to have bright colours around you, especially on a cloudy dark yucky weather day! Trust me it will make you smile!
  10. Bloggers: I love reading other people blogs! Each and every one of them inspire me to continue blogging. Every time I see that someone has read my blog, or commented or started to follow me, I straight away get a big smile on my face, thank you all, each one of you are making me happy! THANK YOU!

I am so grateful for the LDS videos: Mormon Messages.
I always find myself looking forward to new videos being released.
And I also enjoy watching previously released videos.

They are uplifting and wholesome.
They encourage us to be the best that we can be.
They teach and guide us.

I am grateful to have the gospel in my life.
For the blessings it beings to my life,
And the guidance it gives to help improve my life & make me a better person.

I am grateful to know many strong honourable men,
Men that when you are in need, will be there is a second to help,
Men that up hold high standards in their life,
Men that are strong in their faith,
That when needed they can act,
And help those in need.

Thank you to all those men that keep themselves worthy to hold the priesthood.

101 in 1001 Update!

97#  Go To A Museum!

Today Lisa and myself decided to check out 

To be honest I had heard mixed reviews about Mona.
And didn't really know if I would like it or not.

There were a few things that I thought were cool things,
One of the attractions that I was really looking forward to see was unfortunately not turned on which totally sucked! Its a water feature that shoots down water and they make words.

But let me share with you a few of my favourite features that we did get to see...
30 People singing Madonna songs,
All we could hear was their voices!
White library

Shadow room 

It's amazing to see what some people call art.
Like for example the photo above, a bowl sitting on a old wooden chair with a knife in the water with two gold fish... and this is art, interesting!

Moorilla Estate where Mona is located, is absolutely beautiful!
It would be so nice to sit up there and enjoy a warm summers day and listen to good music.

P.s. Watch for the ducks...

More updates for my 101 things in 1001 days coming soon.
I lost focus on this project for a while, 
But I'm back, and there is going to be some major progress with this one!
Check out the List & Stay tuned!!!

10 Simple Things!

Welcome to another 10 Simple Things!

This week I would like to introduce you all to...
Elizabeth & her blog Iz Originals

Iz Originals

10 Things that make Elizabeth happy!!!

  1. Yoga: I love getting up early and having a chance to do it on the beach.
  2. Travelling: Getting ready for a big trip when all that excitement builds and builds.
  3. Creating: I love making anything with my hands. Baking, sewing, painting, playing in clay. You name it, if it gets my hands dirty, it makes me happy.
  4. Walking in freshly cut grass.
  5. New blogger friends: I don't have a lot but i am loving 'meeting' people all over the country and the world who are interested in similar things as I am!
  6. Roller coasters: I love the thrill and excitement from them. The knots in your stomach as you climb up, up, and the release from the fall.
  7. Cooking: A delicious handmade meal to share with family and friends. I love creating great memories over bottles of wine and long evenings that last well into the night.
  8. Getting to see my huddy at the end of a long day.
  9. Steaming hot cups of hot chocolate: it doesn't matter how old your are, nothing ever tastes better than hot chocolate on a cool/cold day. Makes you feel like you're 5 again.
  10. Large friendly dogs that really think they're lap dogs! Growing up with large dogs, it just seems natural to me that a 100 pound dog would want to sit in your lap as much as a 10 pound dog.

Music Monday!

This Week's song...
Pocketful of Sunshine by Natasha Bedingfield

Since Natasha released this song I have always loved it!
I first heard it on the movie 'The Ugly Truth'
And then the other night Lisa showed me a clip from the movie 'Easy A'

Tonight while I was thinking of which song would be my song for the week,
This one came to mind, 
I then watched the clip and it totally fits my week!
When ever something this week is getting me down or frustrated, 
I'm just going to think of this song!
I can't help but want to sing and dance to this song.
It makes me smile!

We will always remember...

10 Years ago today,
The world changed.
We all changed
No matter where you live in the world,
9/11 effected each and every one of you.

Many people lost their lives on this day 10 years ago
Every day since,
Hundreds and thousands of amazing men and women,
Have put their lives on the line,
To fight against terrorism,
And fight for freedom.

Thank you for all those men and women,
We are all grateful for your strength and sacrifices.
For those who have lost their lives during the fight.
You will always be in our hearts.

For those who have lost loved ones,
You are in our prayers,

For those lost on that horrible day,
We will always remember you.

We will never forget how these events have changed our lives.

How has these events changed your life?

I want my life to be one of faith and hope,
I want to ensure that I am putting what is really important first in life.
My family.
I am grateful for the gospel, and that my family is for eternity.

Rediscovered Love...

I have fallen back in love with my curly hair!

My hair is high maintenance!
To keep my curls looking good,
It takes a lot of work, products and money!
The end product is so worth it!

Music Monday!

This week's song...
I Remember me by Jennifer Hudson

I am loving Jennifer's recent album.
This girl amazes me,
She is such a strong woman,
She has accomplished so much
Had amazing highs,
And great losses and heartbreaks.

But she has proved that no matter what get's thrown at you in life,
What trials you may go through,
You can always recover and bounce back.

She is an artist that I hold as my role model!

Love your music Jennifer, 
Love the heart and meaning that you put into all your music,
Look forward to what the future brings in your music.

Thank you for providing for us.
Thank you for teaching us and being an example to us.
Thank you for being strong in the Gospel.

I am so grateful that you are my Dad.
Thank you for being you.

Love you Dad.
