All About Me!

I'm linking up with Blog Hoppin' tonight just for the heck of it! I love reading everyone's 'personal' stuff so I thought I should share the love too. Some of this I may have written about before but stay with me!

1. I LOVE to bake. If things are going wrong in my life it helps me calm down and gets life back on track. Must be the excess sugar when I scrape the bowl clean. {Random fact- my hubby won't eat cake batter because of the raw egg so I 'have to' lick the beaters too. It's tough, but someone has to do it.}

2. I'm a Pisces' and a big beach baby. Bring on Summer! 3 months to go and counting.

3. It hasn't been a great day until I have spent sometime laughing until I've cried. Luckily this year I have a cracker of a kiddo in my room who calls me on his banana 'phone' every day during fruit break. Makes me giggle every time. Plus I love Minions and it is impossible to watch this and not laugh.

4. I have absolutely no sense of direction and get lost regularly which usually results in me on the side of a road somewhere, with no phone reception, in tears. Throw in a foreign country where I can't speak the language (picture 9.30 at night, Hiroshima in Japan and no map reading abilities) and it makes it even more of an adventure :)

5. Pinterest has seriously helped my clutter issues. I love quotes and this has saved me from printing them all out.

 6. Anything cute or vintage and I'm there! I spent this weekend with a gorgeous buddy cruising around the Lost and Found market in Melbourne. I wanted to buy practically everything.

Our town was yarn bombed last year- best time ever!

7. I love to travel and have been to lots of places. Two of favourites have been the Forum in Rome and Tokyo in Japan.

8. I read at least 2 books a week, sometimes more. I don't know how I do this either but it usually involves a lot of reading while cooking and eating. I'm currently going through a Vampire Romance phase. It's becoming quite sad and obsessive but a LOT of fun.

9. I love music but have not one musical bone in my body. Singing {badly} makes me happy. I heart Bernard Fanning.

10. I truly, honestly take time each day to appreciate my life and the wonderful people in it. This last week especially has reinforced that sometimes horrible things happen to good people and that I am fortunate to be me. My life is pretty damn special (no matter what 'something' is getting me down) and I am lucky to have it.

Can't wait to read your link up's!

  1. I loved reading this post. It made me smile and then laugh.

  2. I love baking as well. Somehow it always turns out compared to my many cooking failures! That vintage store looks like so much fun! I love thrifting and repurposing things! Looking forward to sharing ideas!

  3. HEHE! Sounds like any excuse to eat some cake batter to me!
