A Love Story (The Really Extended Version)

A Love Story (The Really Extended Version)

Exactly one month ago, Rory and I said our vows and got married. We had an amazing wedding, and I still love to look through all the pictures and videos that everyone took. I posted a long rambly post about the day (Our Wedding) after we got back from our Fiji Honeymoon (which I have also posted about). In celebration of this, I wanted to look back through the history of our relationship. I did a quick version in an older post calledย Lucky in Love.

So just a heads-up, I’m in a very lovey-dovey headspace, so if you don’t fee like reading a long rambly post about being in love (just look at that word count!), then check out some of my other posts. If you’re happy to join me on my rambles, then keep reading!

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Previously, A is forย Avatar: The Last Airbender.ย I hope you guys enjoyed the last post. I had a lot of fun writing about it ๐Ÿ˜€

Nowย we have a look at B.

B is forย Brooklyn Nine-Nine

I have a soft spot for comedies. They are fun and easy to watch, which makes them perfect for binging. Brooklyn Nine-Nine is a ‘smart’ comedy, which to me means that they have clever, layered jokes. They may have some weaker episodes, but overall the quality is high. When they write a good episode, it’s amazing. Another high recommendation from Angela.

The Time it Snowed

The Time it Snowed

Hey guys, today I have a kind of TBT post. I’m thinking of making Thursdays a TBT day, where I tell stories from my past/childhood. I’ll post my Weekly Photo Challenge in the morning, and then a story in the afternoon. Let me know what you guys think, I hope it will give you a Chuckle ๐Ÿ™‚

As most of you would know, I live in Wellington, New Zealand. Now it is often cold down here (I blame our closeness to Antarctica), but not as cold in the South Island. Snow in Wellington is rare. As in once in every 50 years rare.

On one fateful day back in August 2011, Wellington was hit the worst storm since 1976, and it snowed. Sure this led to power cuts, road closures, and public transport was affected, but most of us in Wellington didn’t care. We had snow! SNOW! For most, it was the only time we ever got to experience snow.

My family went on a trip to Mt Ruapehu back in 1996, but I have no memories of it. So I was beyond excited during this little blizzard we have.

Earth and the Wonders I’ve Seen

For my interpretation of this week’s photo challenge, I’ll take a look at all the places I’ve visited here onย Earth.

I haven’t travelled as much as I want to, but I have seen quite a few incredible things.

In my home country of New Zealand, I hiked the Tongariro Crossing and saw the Emerald Lakes.


I went to Sydney, and I was able to see the Blue Mountains, an impressive rock formation.

Leisurely Walks

Hello all! I would like to complain about the weather. The weather has sucked here lately. We have been lucky enough to have one sunny day here or there, but as we head into more of autumn, and then winter (ugh), I’m sure we will see more grey and rain.

I thought it would be nice to upload photos of past summer days where Rory and I would walk around town. We’d walk around the waterfront, Courtenay Place, and just look around. I would constantly stop to take photos of whatever interested me. I’ve posted some of these photos before, but I have a lot sitting in my phone.ย So I thought I would pick out the best and show them to you guys, while I wait for the rain to go away.

Avatar: The Last Airbender

Avatar: The Last Airbender

Hey, so I’ve seen this challenge floating around, and I thought I would give it a go. I have watched my fair share of tv shows, so I thought I would do a recommendation of one from each letter of the alphabet. I may struggle on some letters , but it’s called a challenge for a reason. Now 26 posts is a long series, and I still want to feel free with what I blog about, so I’ll aim for posting these just twice a week. For now they’ll show up on Tuesdaysย and Fridaysย until I finish the challenge. I’ll name my show, and then talk about what I like about it, and look into the main characters a bit more. I may also occasionally mention another show that starts with that letter because I watch a lot of shows. Okay, here we go.

A is forย Avatar: The Last Airbender

So, I’ve watched this series many times. I love it.ย I’ve been trying to work out how to coherently talk about how awesome it is andย I can’t, really. Rory and I are both huge fans, and we discussed what we liked about the show. We literally talked for an hour.

The Marry-Wed Game

The Marry-Wed Game

Hello all! I found this cute variation of the Newlyweds game on Pinterest. Rory and I were doing our own thing at home a couple of days ago when I came across it. As newlyweds ourselves, we thought we would give this a go. It was a fun way to kill some time as we finished household errands and wound down from the day. This may be a long post, so skim read if you want ๐Ÿ™‚

the MARRY-WED game- a lot like the "newly-wed" game, but for those of you married couples! How well do you really know your spouse?! FUN and FREE printable! :):

There were only 20 questions, and we had a lot of fun thinking about our answers. First, I wrote down what I thought Rory’s answers for these questions would be. Then came the fun part, talking it through and seeing what the other person thought! As we went through this, I thought it would make a fun blog post, so I asked if he minded, and he laughed and said of course not. So you will have both of our voices in this blog, which makes this my first collaboration, of sorts. Rory’s voice will be in bold, as I will continue being in regular text. Here we go.
