Say it ain't so!

It can't seriously be JULY already?!  I just blinked and Christmas was over, and now we're in the second half of this year already.  Oh My Goodness!

We have 2 days left until winter break here in New Zealand, and I am SOOOOOO ready.  My kids have been such troopers.  It's been a looooooong 11 week term, and we are all so ready to stop.

Today we watched Wall-E and I'm thinking I might have to watch another movie tomorrow with my kiddos, because we are just so bone tired it's not even funny!

I'm heading over to the wonderful Farley's blog now to link up again with her currently post.  I can't wait to read what every one else is up to!

Listening - Does anyone else love this programme as much as me?!  It reminds me of Desperate Housewives, only funnier.

Loving - My sister has been studying at Oregon State for the past 5 years (Go Beavers!).  I am SOOOO happy that she is finally back on home soil, and isn't planning on going any where any time soon.  AND she's going to be living just an hour south of me!! Whoop whoop!!

Thinking - A close family friend is having his 21st this weekend.  I really want to get a new LBD, but I live so far away from any shopping centres now.  HOPEfully there will be enough time on Saturday on my way home to stop in and have a look around.

Wanting - Winter break starts this Friday.  GOTTA make it til then.  Two days... I can do this!

Needing - End-of-termitis got me like...

Allstar - I'm awesome at playing the piano and other musical things.  I got my performance certificate back in 2010.  I'm looking at learning a new instrument.  Not sure which one yet, but I'm leaning towards the saxophone.

Head over to Farley's blog now, and see what everyone else is up to.  


  1. Wow! I've never linked up with someone in another country! I've always wanted to travel to New Zealand and Australia... it seems so beautiful! Hope your school year is going well!

  3. Winter Break?! That's awesome! We're right smack in the middle of summer here in the States, so it's awesome that you're in winter. I love the little boy with his head down. That's definitely me right before each break. lol....

    Happy Days in First Grade

    1. Haha, you're the only one that's loving on that boy right now. About 30 seconds after I took this photo he had a complete and utter meltdown for absolutely no reason whatsoever. The rest of the kids were good though, and completely ignored him!
      End of the term is rough on the kids too!

  4. You should watch Big Hero 6! I love that movie and it's what I showed the last day of school. Enjoy your upcoming break my friend! :)

    1. Oooo yes! I haven't seen that one yet, but have heard good things! Will look for it. We're a bit behind here though, so chances are I'll be able to watch it in 2019! Haha, just kidding.


  5. Erin...I MUST look up Devious Maids. I haven't heard of this! Only one day left until break for you! YOU CAN DO IT!!!
