Things I'm Loving...

By PaisleyJade - Friday, August 05, 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...

Loving my super flash new hair straightener - secretly bought online by my hubby for a super good deal!!  I'm actually starting to wonder if my old one died after all the strange things I used to use it for (see here).

Loving my new crochet hook - it's even my favourite colour!!

Loving free glasses for hubby thanks to Clearly Contacts NZ - they gave away 10,000 free pairs of glasses within 2 days!  Please note: this is the 'forced to pose for blogging wife' look.  Very similar to this one actually.

Cracking up when going on Doggelganger (the kids forced me to... honest!) that I was matched up with a Staffy!  Looks like me and Boo really are a good match.

Loving the fact that messes aren't permanent and can be cleaned up.  I'd like to introduce you to the exploding packet of cocoa and the exploding bedroom...

Loving wafer sticks!  Totally love these crunchy wafer treats... they are dangerously delicious.
