It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas...

This is my favourite time of the year!
And I already have so many things planned,
But so now let me share with you a few things that I wish that I could do,
But unfortunately can't do to factors such as...
Living in a rental property,
Not having planned enough,
and so many other factors.

But let me share with you some of my favourites from Pinterest.
I would love to do this!
In my dream house I would love to have a blackboard wall,
And this would be my Christmas themed wall!
May need someone else to draw it for me though.
This used to be me when I was a little kid, along with my brothers and sisters.
I look forward to the day that I can watch my children snuggle up in front of the Christmas tree.
 Santa's real,
He eats cookies, drinks mike and takes the carrots to he's reindeers.
And leaves sparkly white foot prints!
 Bright, warm, christmas,
Filled with family, laughter, and Christ.
 My house will have the Tradition of Mistletoe.
I am yet to be kissed under mistletoe...
I wonder who will be the first?
My sister is doing this displace and I also plan to do this too.

Other than these few ideas, there are many more which I would love to implement in the future.
Christmas is a wonderful time of year.
But most of all it is the time of year we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.
I am truly grateful for the saviours life, and the love he has for each and everyone of us.
Christmas is a time for family and friends,
A time for forgiveness, and love,
A time for sharing and service, caring for each other.

I hope you all are looking forward to Christmas as much as I am.

Million miles away...

At the moment my thoughts feel like they are a million mile away, leaving my head all fuzzy.
I really don't like that feeling, so at the moment I am working at clearing my head, and getting my thinking straight.

I know that I haven't been blogging lately, so to make up for it... here are 10 random, random thoughts, and things that I have come across lately that have interested me...

1# For those that love Big Bang Theory... Thanks to one of my friends for sharing on facebook!
BTW... I love the fact that Sheldon stays in character in the background and doesn't dance, but ends it all with BAZINGA!

2# I hate the fact that I am a shy person! Seriously annoys the heck out of me. That mix with confidence problems oh what a great mixture! Seriously need to get my head sorted in that area!

3# Love this quote... need to remember it though! And stop being so judgemental of myself.
4# Music: oh there are so many songs that I am loving at the moment, but that is another blog post.
The reason why I love it so much at the moment is because it's great to be able to drown out the thoughts in my head.

5# I hate hayfever! That is one thing that I don't like about Brisbane. I have never in my life had hayfever, but since move to Brisbane I have now developed it. I'm over it! The itchy eyes bug me but the thing that I hate the most is the sneezing. Some day will be good and my medication will keep it at bay, but other days I sneeze all day long.

6# Security camera catch so many interesting things...

7# Currently I am working on a list of 100 things about me... it's actually harder than I thought I would be! But only have 10 more to go, then I will share the list with you!

8# My bike hasn't been ridden for a couple of weeks, I have a feeling it needs some attention this weekend! Time for a bike ride!
9# I am so grateful for new friends, both far away and near. Thank you for your amazing friendships! I have learnt so much off you all, and you are all such big examples to me!

10# Christmas is right around the corner!! My favourite time of the year! Oh I can't wait for the festive celebrations to begin!!!

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your week!

Clean Up Time...

Over the last few months I have lost my blogging spark.
I lost the desire to write blogs and read other blogs.
And I have not liked that fact, not one bit.
But I knew that there was a reason to why I had lost my joy of blogging.

So I have decided to change up a few things.
I am taking the stress out of blogging,
And just blogging for me, and not for any one else.

Some of the changes that I am making are...
Deleting my blog facebook page,
No longer advertising my blog on other blogs.
No longer hosting giveaways.
And blogging when I feel that I have something that I want to say.

I want blogger to follow me because they like my blog
I want to get to know people better, to make friends of the blogger that I admire.
I want to create a blog full of memories, because I don't want to forget them in the future.
I want to document the highs and lows.
I want to be a 'real' blogger.

I hope each of you that read my blog wish to continue to read my blog,
I hope that you will start to find it a bit more interesting
And I truly want to get to know you!

We All Have At Least One Things In Common...

Thank you Kenna for creating this uplifting video.
When I first watched the video it made me cry.
Kenna, even though you are going through a hard time, 
You are bringing light to so many people's lives.
Thank you.

While We Sleep...

The next 24 hours the world is on the edge of our seats waiting to see what the future brings who the president of the United States of American is going to be.

Good luck American, use your right to vote rather than being silent.
If you don't vote, then you have no right to complain about the outcome.

Good luck Mitt Romney
My prayers are with you.
