Sunday Confessions

Join in a link up for some Sunday Confessions.

1) I've got nothing this week. I have been visiting friends all week. Exploring the city and surrounding countryside. Taking a million pictures and soaking up as much sun as possible.

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend.

Perfect Saturday

Hello lovely readers. Happy Saturday. What a beautiful day to be going on a wine tour. Thats right, I am up nice and early on this fine morning because I am off to drive around the Adelaide hills, taste some wine, take lots of picture and eat delicious food.

Any special plans for your weekend?

One should, of course, defend oneself vigorously against the attacks of extra pounds, wrinkles, and double chins, but it is a battle that should be undertaken philosophically, for even the most skilful plastic surgery cannot recapture our youth. It is far better to settle down without vain regrets to a life filled with the rewards of past efforts and the joys that we at last have the means to give to others, instead of sulking like little girls when we are far too old to cast ourselves in such a childish role.
Elegance can be acquired only at the price of numerous errors that are best remembered with good humour. And in the end, it is in the moments when we forget ourselves entirely that we are at our most beautiful.

What defines elegance for you?

Wanderlust Wednesday - Michigan


I fell in love with Michigan when we went there last year to visit my mom and her husband. It was so beautiful and peaceful. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming.
It was refreshing to stay there for a few weeks after living in a big city for so long. Definitely a different way of life.

Sunday Confessions

Sunday confessions is back again so link up.

1) I cannot stop eating hummus. Which isn't really a bad thing I guess since its good for you.

2) I'm glad that we only came to Australia with a suitcase each as I hate packing and am not looking forward to fitting everything back in again.

3) I am actually looking forward to being unemployed. I want to make the most of it and make it last as long as possible before I search for a job.

4) I want to make sure the next job I have I really enjoy so instead of rushing and applying for everything I would like to take my time and pick and choose.

5) My hair hates Australia. I just spent 10 mins using the hair dryer and straightener and not 2 mins later  I have frizz.

Wanderlust Wednesday - Adelaide

Adelaide, Australia

Today for Wanderlust Wednesday I thought I would talk about a place I will be heading to very soon. I have been looking forward to this trip for some time as we will be catching up with some dear friends of ours. I have heard that Adelaide is beautiful and I am really excited that the beach is 10 minutes away if that.
Lots of exploring to be done and of course a wine tour or two.

Summer is slowly coming to an end. The hot sticky humidity that I had finally gotten use to is being replaced by cool breezes and rainy days.  Every chance we get we race to the beach to soak up the sunny days and feel the sand between our toes.

I feel so spoiled spending a year completely missing winter. As we prepare ourselves to leave Australia I worry that I will freeze in any climate that gets any colder.

Wanderlust Wednesday - Magnetic Island

Magnetic Island

Magnetic Island is probably my favourite place here in Australia. It was so peaceful with hardly anyone around and tons of rainforest and wildlife. Going for a drive you will see Koala's sleeping in the trees. Order fish and chips and relax on the beach, watching the sunset in the distance. I could have stayed here for our entire year in Australia and I would have been completely satisfied.

Sometimes life just gets in the way

I know I haven't blogged much the past couple of weeks. Things just seem to get in the way. I always feel like I have so much time to accomplish things,  but lately I have been a huge procrastinator.
I tend to ignore things that need to get done and push everything away until the last minute thus causing myself to get extremely stressed out. We need to sort out a million things like flights, where we are going to live, what jobs we will have when we get there.
 So while I am stuck thinking all these things through and slowly working my way to getting everything organized blogging has sadly taken a back burner. But I promise I have lots of things that I want to share with you guys. Especially regarding our future plans for the next year or so. Hopefully over the next couple of weeks I will be able to find some balance so that I can blog more regularly.

Wanderlust Wednesday - Hawaii

Happy hump day everyone. So nice that this is also a short work week for me. Today for wanderlust Wednesday I thought I would talk about one of the places that I plan to visit in the near future.


I have always wanted to visit Hawaii and its so silly that I haven't vacationed there yet since it is so close to Canada. But it seems to be one of those things where I go to far away destinations rather then the places close to me. I would love to visit a volcano. Thats something I could cross of the never ending bucket list.

Anyone have suggestions of things to do while I am in Hawaii?

Weekend recap

I don't know about you guys but this four day weekend went by way to fast. Maybe thats because it was jam packed full of fun.

Our lovely friends Jeremy and Leana flew in from Adelaide for the weekend. Now I have mentioned before what a wonderful person Leana is. She was who we stayed with when we first arrived in Brisbane and she just instantly put us at ease and made us so welcome. I will be forever grateful to her for that. I became fast friends with Leana. Something that is extremely rare for me these days so when she told us she was coming down I was jumping for joy for a good ten mins. Well maybe five, it's hard work.
We met Saturday afternoon for a coffee and catchup then headed off to our favourite store, Trade Secrets which is similar to Winners ( for all you Canadians) but on a smaller scale. We wandered through the outdoor markets and stopped off at our favourite dumpling place for lunch. A perfect girls day.
Sunday was a chance for the guys to join in and we all got together for drinks at a local pub. I am ashamed to say I didn't take a single picture this weekend. Its just not like me. I will just slap myself on the wrist and promise to do better next time.
All in all it was a fantastic weekend. Exactly what I needed. I feel well rested and ready to tackle the week ahead.

How was everyone's weekend?
