Things I'm Loving...

By PaisleyJade - Friday, April 01, 2011

I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something that you can be thankful for... no matter how simple it is.  

Here are a few of the things I am loving at the moment...

Little Miss Independence... no help required wanted when it comes to buckling up swings, doing up her buttons, zips, shutting the car door, buttering her toast... you get the idea (be warned... if you help, you get screamed at).

That hubby is on holiday for one whole month from this Saturday!!!!!  Woohooo - looking forward to hanging out with him, our family visiting over from Australia, celebrating our wedding anniversary next week and oh so much more!  He missed out having his Christmas holidays this year so is definitely ready for a break.

Felt clouds - I'd really love to make some of these!

Boo and her bling...

Carcassonne - only the best board game in the whole wide world!  Enjoyed playing it a couple of nights ago with our lovely friends and regularly with Symon (he usually gets a good whipping from me - hehe).

Blogging buddy get-togethers!  We had a fab time earlier this week again - love all of these girls.

This quote that I've taken the liberty to zhuzh up a bit...

  3. Love those felt mobiles, I have recollections of my mum making us one that had little metal sprinkles of rain coming out of a fluffy cotton wool cloud.

    Carcasonne rocks! We discovered it at Christmas and spent pretty much every evening having a game or two, great that you can buy extensions for it to mix it up a wee bit too.

    And yay for hubby holidays!

  4. LOVE Carcassonne! We have it and about 4 extension packs. Haven't played for a while. Need to dust it off and have a game again. Ta for the reminder :-)
    Think we're heading into the Miss Independence stage too... wish us luck!!!
