Weekly Gratitude List

gratitude list, gratitude, attitude of gratitude, brunch, eggs benedict

I’m going to be honest, I really didn’t feel like posting today; I don’t know what it is, but I feel really bummed out right now.I guess that’s when I need to do these posts the most though, right? So, in the spirit of thinking of the positive (and in the hopes that this cheers me up a little) here are a few things that have kicked ass this past week:  Continue reading →

Updated: My Desk Office Area

Ever since we moved into our apartment, I had wanted to get a new desk; the one I had come with the apartment, and I never felt as if it was mine. Does that sound weird? It served its purpose, sure, it just lacked personality I guess. So at the beginning of the year, my lovely husband bought me a desk from Freedom Furniture, and it’s safe to say that I am in love with it.

After getting the desk, I re-arranged my office and got a few new desk buddies. I love this space so much, and no longer lie in bed curled up as if I’m doing crunches when I’m writing blog posts (anyone else sit like that with their laptop?)

Things To Do When I’m In Auckland

I’ll be in Auckland for a day and a bit in April, and have nothing planned; my husband will be attending a conference, and because it means getting out of town, I decided to tag along.

Birthday Weekend Away: Rotorua

Phillip and I went to Rotorua for the weekend; it was my birthday on Saturday and over the past couple of years years it has become a tradition to get out of town for my birthday weekend. This year, it coincides with the Wellington Sevens, and because I don’t like sportsball or large crowds of drunken hooligans ain’t nobody got time for that.   Continue reading →

My Life, At The Moment – Taking Stock

Taking Stock, Coffee

It’s been a while since I posted here last. Not because I haven’t had anything to share with you guys (I’m always been jotting down ideas of things I think will be neat to write about); it’s just that I’ve been pretty down lately and haven’t felt like doing much aside from curling into a ball and watching TV when I get home from work most nights.

Today, I decided that I had moped around for too long, and that really needed to shake off this bad mood and just write something; anything. I was a bit stuck about where to start, and I figured a Taking Stock post (huge thanks Laura Laura for the idea) would be a good starting point.
