Things I'm Loving...

By PaisleyJade - Friday, July 08, 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...

Pretty heart polish, bought by Symon as a wee treat for me...

And talking about Symon, the fact that he decided to give me my very own pamper night, which included giving the kids their dinner early, setting a cute table for our meal in the lounge, cooking me a 3 course meal (Garlic Prawns, Portuguese Chicken and Trinity of Chocolate for dessert), and encouraging me to relax and paint my nails in between courses and while he did the dishes.  I felt totally spoiled - what a guy!

Loving drizzling white chocolate over Fudge Brownies (cause we all know drizzled chocolate makes everything awesome)...

King Julian and his funny antics... at the moment he's obsessed with the new baby guppies in our tank...

Tiger face painting - I think I did okay for an amateur...

Wearing a skirt, even if it's only once in a blue moon for this jeans loving girl...
