Things I'm Loving...

By PaisleyJade - Friday, October 28, 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.  

Is it that time of the week already!?!  Here are a few of the things I am loving at the moment...

I'm loving Kiwi Cakes and their new premises (Grant Street, Kamo, Whangarei)!!  The amazing Sandra invited me up to visit her new shop this week.  She also had a wee surprise for me... some amazing moustache cookie cutters and straws!!  I looooove them and can't wait to make some moustache biscuits!!  I also gave her my latest amigurimi cupcake as a little 'shop warming' gift.

Seriously, if you live in Northland (NZ), you must check this place out.  It is like my dream shop, filled with every type of cake tin, cupcake patties, birthday party supplies, cook books, icing colours galore and every cake/cupcake decoration supply you could ever need.  She also host an array of cake/biscuit decorating classes (more details here).  You can even order online if you live in another city or country! Thank you  so much Sandra!!

Loving how cute my girl looks in her 'geeky glasses'...

Speaking of nerds, loving the fact that while every other 'normal' kiwi kid would be playing sport on a Saturday morning, my boys were out with their Poppa and their local rock collecting club, scouring the hillside and beaches for precious stones and rocks.  A wee bit nerdy but also very cool!

Loving delicious cupcakes (from Kiwi Cake's opening night)...

Loving (and slightly not loving) what hubby has secretly done to my passport photos...

Loving the fact that Summer is on it's way (yeah, can you spot my payback below)...

Link Love: Loving this link for how to sew your own Chewbacca! Loving this funny Christmas ornament, and this cracks me up!
