What’s Up Wednesday #8

I haven’t typed those words in almost 6 months! I thought it would be nice to do this post as a little catch up post since I’ve been back from holiday! As always, this post was started by  Shay over at Mix’n’Match Mama.

What We’re Eating This Week

Lots of food. Especially as we’re heading into winter, we’re having more comfort foods. Roasts, soups, etc.

What I’m Reminiscing About

Obviously, our very recent Japan trip!

What I’m Loving

Getting back into blogging! I loved writing our Japan recaps, and coming up with ideas for posts this month!

What We’ve Been Up To

Since our bathroom has been remodeled, we’ve been thinking of other projects we’d like to do around the house. Nothing as big as remodelling a whole room, but little DIY ideas here and there.

What I’m Dreading

The sicknesses that come with the colder seasons. Since working with kids, every year I get hit with a variety of bugs and colds no matter how much I try keep myself healthy. One of the downfalls of working with very young children who will sometimes cough in your face.

What I’m Working On

A few projects I have in mind at the moment. Some Pinterest DIY’s that have caught my eye, and getting mementos together from our Japan trip. Trying to read more books to catch up on my Reading Challenge. Just keeping on top of my many hobbies really.

Doodles

What I’m Excited About

There is a few things we’re working on, but we’re keeping it hush at the moment as we work things out.

What I’m Watching/Reading

I’ve been catching up on The Handmaid’s Tale Season 2

I’m currently reading Still Me by Jojo Moyes.

What I’m Listening To

Again, mostly pop, it’s fun to sing and dance to.

What I’m Wearing

Many, many layers.

What I’m Doing This Weekend

We’re going back to visit the Cat Cafe! It’s also my brother’s birthday soon, so we’ll be having dinner with my family.

What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month

Honestly, there’s not too much going on in the next month. Just work and saving up.

What Else is New

Not too much else.

What’s been going on with you guys lately?

What I’m Loving

This amazing weather we’ve been having lately! It’s been so sunny and hot 😀

What We’ve Been Up To

Not much really. November was pretty quiet. It got a little too quiet and mostly boring.

What I’m Dreading

Luckily, I’m not dreading anything right now!

What I’m Working On

Just my blog really. I’m trying to think of some Christmas related posts to do as well.

What I’m Excited About

All the festivities coming up! Christmas, birthdays, summer, and just taking a break from work!

What I’m Watching/Reading

I’ve recently begun watching Good Morning Call on Netflix, and it’s safe to say I’m addicted.

I’m also reading Tokyo Ghoul, and will probably give the anime version a try soon too!

What I’m Listening To

A lot of pop

What I’m Wearing

Singlets, shorts, dresses, playsuits and all those summery things.

What I’m Doing This Weekend

This weekend is my birthday! On Saturday to be exact. Rory has planned a few things, and we’re also taking a few days off so we can have a long weekend. It’s going to be so much fun!

What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, as much as I’m excited for 2018. I want to bask in all of the holidays coming up the rest of this December!

What Else is New

Just something little bugging me, I ordered something from a trading site and didn’t get tracked this one time as I figured it’d be fine. Now it seems to be lost, which is a pain as I try to contact the post office to try figure out what happened. But otherwise, nothing to report.

What’s been happening lately with you guys?

What We’re Eating This Week

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Snacks. I can’t really get too specific in these, we tend to choose on the day rather than plan in advance.

What I’m Reminiscing About

Fiji, again. I haven’t reminisced about our honeymoon in a bit, but Jo and Tib have recently shared their travel photos from Rarotonga for their honeymoon. It’s another beautiful island and has brought back lots of Fiji memories for me.

What I’m Loving

My planner and journals. I’m enjoying just filling them all in. It’s so much fun.

What We’ve Been Up To

Not much since getting back from Auckland. Just hanging out and talking about possible future trips.

What I’m Dreading

I’m not really dreading anything at the moment actually. It’s kind of nice.

What I’m Working On

I’m working on looking at our possible trip to Japan next year. I’m checking out what things we might want to see, cities to visit, places to stay, and all that fun planning stuff.

What I’m Excited About

The warmer weather we’re having. It’s getting me pumped for summer!

What I’m Watching/Reading

Right now we’re watching a lot of Netflix. Currently, we’re into the second season of Stranger Things.

I’ve been reading random books off my TBR list that look like fun. Currently it’s Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus.

What I’m Listening To

I’ve been listening to a few of the Riverdale songs lately. Mainly I Feel Love and Milkshake. I’m always a sucker for good covers.

What I’m Wearing

A lot of blue.

What I’m Doing This Weekend

This weekend, currently we don’t have any plans. If the weather is again really sunny, then we may go out somewhere.

What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month

November is kind of an in between month for me. October is fun as it’s Halloween and birthdays. December is even more fun because it’s my birthday and Christmas! So right now, I’m more looking forward to the end of November.

What Else Is New

Not too much, just still making my way through my goodies from the Night Time Cozy box. There’s so many masks to try, and I’m both trying to savour them, and just use them all.

What’s up with you guys?

What We’re Eating This Week

Breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.

What I’m Reminiscing About

Being closer to work. I love our new house, but I do miss the short walk to work.

What  I’m Loving

My new camera!! I’m so happy I got it, and I’m having so much fun trying to figure it all out!

What We’ve Been Up To

Thinking about money. In terms of work needed on the bathroom, and the possibility of going overseas on a trip sometime next year!

20171001_164858

What I’m Dreading

Right now, everything is actually pretty good.

What I’m Working On

A few things for the blog. As well as some side projects that seem like fun. I’m trying to make a travel wall thing, where I’m collecting maps, and pictures from all the place I’ve travelled.

What I’m Excited About

Mini holiday! We’ve got a week off work coming up. In that time, we’re going up to Auckland for my sister’s wedding, then when we get back to Wellington, it’s Rory’s birthday! So much to celebrate!

I’m reading and skimming through my photography books. I also am meaning to get back into my regular reading for the Goodreads challenge, but I get easily distracted.

What I’m Listening To

A mix of Halsey, Lorde and Selena Gomez

What I’m Wearing

We have been getting some warmer days. They’re still rare, but they make me hopeful! I’ve been wearing less layers thanks to that.

What I’m Doing This Weekend

This coming weekend, there’s not much planned. Just plan on experimenting more with my camera and trying to get better with my skills.

What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month

November is surprisingly quiet. Nothing is really scheduled there for the moment. Should be getting much warmer though!

What Else is New

This is a later edit, but I’ve finally made a Bloglovin’ account. No clue what I’m doing there 😀

What’s Up Wednesday #4

What’s up guys? You know the drill. It’s the first Wednesday of a new month, so I’ll be doing another little update post. The original idea from this post comes from Shay over at Mix and Match Mama.

What We’re Eating This Week

Variations of food. That is a weird thing to say. But yeah, we’re moving on Saturday and trying to keep our fridge minimal, so leftovers mostly and the occasional takeout.

What I’m Reminiscing About

Quieter days at work. Things have been pretty crazy lately, and we’re waiting for it to settle down.

What  I’m Loving

All the new beauty things I recently bought. There’s nothing like buying things and then using said things. Especially when they’re so pretty! I’m still not great at using them to their full potential yet. But I like to think I’m slowly getting better at the whole makeup and hair business.

What We’ve Been Up To

Slowly packing. At the speed of sloths, snails and other slow creatures. I mentioned in my last weekend review that we haven’t yet packed most things. We’re like halfway done by this point ish. We are on a half day today though. That’s cause we have to go visit the house again for another walk through, make sure it still looks the same and all that. Also we have to visit our lawyer to finalise the loan documents. Joys.

20170827_131140

What I’m Dreading

Nothing major, but kind of driving again. I was driving pretty much daily back before the wedding, but  then I stopped. For no real reason, other than laziness. After a long batch of not driving, I’m always a little nervous getting back behind the wheel again. Also, our car is a manual, so I’m gonna stall a lot and that annoys me. But I’ll be okay after a while, it’s just nerves.

What I’m Working On

Scheduling blog posts! I think we’re going to have no internet next weekend, possibly till late Monday, so I’m getting these posts ready to go as soon as I can. I know I could just take a break but…nah.

What I’m Excited About

Moving obviously. But also, it’s SPRING. I’ve recently made a post about it, but I am so glad to have made it through another winter. Bring on the warmth and sunshine!

20151025_120808

What I’m Watching/Reading

We currently finished rewatching all of How I Met Your Mother. I’d never seen the last season before, and I’m still mad about it. But since then, I’ve been going around Netflix looking for random things to watch. I really liked Bo Burnham’s “Make Happy”. He’s a comedian, but he also does songs. So comedy music. I don’t really like stand up comedians, but Bo was really cool! I also remembered that he guest starred in Parks and Rec once too. Here’s a few of the songs:

Also, I’m still reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Veeeery slowly.

What I’m Listening To

A lot of pop. I always end up playing on repeat whatever Selena Gomez releases for like a whole week. I will say though, that  I have always hated random rap verses in pop songs. I always look for a version without it to listen to instead.

I also sometimes fall into a Youtube hole of songs from the early 2000s. There’s a lot of playlists there, so many songs I forgot that I love singing along to. You guys, My Brightside came out in 2004!! That was 13 years ago and that scares me.

What I’m Wearing

Still many layers as it’s still cold. But hopefully in the next What’s Up Wednesday, I’ll be wearing less layers.

What I’m Doing This Weekend

I’ve been saying this forever now it feels, but we’re FINALLY moving this weekend. So that’s all that we will be doing this weekend.

What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month

This month will mostly be preoccupied with getting settled into our new place. October has lots of promise though. We will be well into spring so it should be way warmer. We’re going up to Auckland for my sister’s wedding. We’ll be spending quite a few days in Waiheke Island. It’s also Rory’s birthday in that month!

What Else is New

Not too much.

What’s up with you guys lately?

What’s Up Wednesday #2

Hello! Welcome back to another What’s Up Wednesday! I originally was going to stick to doing these just once a month, then I decided to do it every two weeks which I didn’t. I don’t have an excuse other than I forgot. But the more I think about it, I would rather stick to once a month. I do little catch ups in my weekend reviews, so I don’t feel like I’d have much to say if I did this every week or two weeks.

Here’s a link to the first one – What’s Up Wednesday. Credit to the wonderful Shay!

Let’s get into it!

What’s Up Wednesday

So, I have seen this post around for ages. I first saw it done by Jenny (she also credits Shay, who I think was the creator), and also by BrittHannah, and most recently Cheila and Lee. (Go check them out, I’ll wait) I have decided to do these on the first Wednesday of each month, as that seems like fun. I was planning on doing it on the last Wednesday of each month, but I got sidetracked.

Anyway, let’s get into this.
