Things I'm Loving...

By PaisleyJade - Friday, September 16, 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...

Finding this cute retro camera at our local Artisan markets last week...

Loving the excitement in our city of Whangarei on Wednesday, as we hosted one of the Rugby World Cup matches (between Tonga & Canada).  Talk about a sea of red and white everywhere! We also even had our very own Flash Mob Haka (Ngapuhi Haka) in the middle of town...

Loved making another crochet Apple Cozy for a special friend...

Loved visiting the local Kiwi House with our Playcentre, and actually getting a good look at one of the Kiwi's for once!

Loving this notebook...

Loved the fabulous "Besties Day Out" that my girl had with her bestie (this amazing lady's daughter). They went to Miss Joy's grandmother's house for the day... had spa's, watched a movie with popcorn and candy floss, painted and so much more.

Finally, loving getting chocolate in the mail (who wouldn't!!).  Thanks to Lucy from The Kitchen Maid for this fabulous giveaway.  Totally LOVE Whittaker's chocolate.

  13. Simple things can make as happy :) I love that cute notebook and the camera is wow!

    That flash mob is pretty awesome. I only just figured out what a flash mob was a few weeks ago... Yes, I am a wee bit slow.

    I love anything with Keep Calm written on it!

    Have a blessed Friday!


  16. LOOOVe that "new" camera! What a find! :)

    Best wishes, Annemarie
