What do YOU want?

I read more than 100 different blogs every day. I don’t usually comment, but I read.

I have gleaned some incredible things from these blogs.

Something I have been excited to impliment is a weekly dose of some of my favourite things.

I want to know what you want to hear about.

Do you want more pictures? (Grandma, I’m putting you down on this one as a yes?!)

Some recipes?

Art Techniques?

Creative writing examples and encouragements?

Guest bloggers?


Money/time saving tips?

Funny crap that happens to me?

Books I read/shoes I love?

I suppose, I am leaning the blog away from me and more into things I am passionate about.

I have said ‘I’ a lot in this post and I want YOU to leave a comment stating “I want you to have…” And give some feedback…

The Journey of the Giraffe which is probably the least eventful story in the world. But is complete with pictures.

Of course, I have many giraffe stories. However, I have yet to have a giraffe story with a CAMERA on hand. Lucky for me, while on a walk through our chalet park, we stumbled across this:

I know. Adorable.

I had a camera this time. No make up on my face mind you, but a camera. Proof:

Make-up aint nothing when you are staying in a chalet with a private pool.

We walked 20 metres up to the guy on our side of the fence and he decided to step forward to greet us.

He halved the distance in one step.

I chickened out. Ran away and used the zoom.


The End.

Things I am not a stranger to…

It’s been officially three months since Hubs and I returned from honeymoon. Boy, has it been an adventure. Which is fabulous because, as you know, I am no stranger to adventure.

Or Danger…

or beauty

And definitely not hugs.

I like my husband.

Hubs is a great guy. He took me to the art store when I told him that everything was 50% off. (In SA the best sales are 35% off at best. This is a BIG sale) I was so excited. We waltz through the steel gate into paradise.

And I saw them.

Inkadinkado Rubber Stamps.

They are gorgeous.

Hubs looked at me when I pulled them off the shelf. I begged he conceded. As I pranced with the joy of holding beautiful objects, he casually mentions “Babe, I have wooden blocks at home for you to decorate.” Oh how sweet! I giggled and thanked him and we paid.

Utterly confused, Hubs says, “I’m sorry. How in the hell are you going to fit a BLOCK OF WOOD into a book.”

A block of wood?

A block of rubber stamping wood.

And then everything made sense.

Poor supportive Hubs. He did everything to make sure I found joy even if it meant gluing blocks of wood into a book.

Doesn’t he win?

Sometimes we all need a little giggle.

Third week of surpressed joy.

But this cartoon unleashed it! 🙂

I eat toast in bed for revenge.

Oh crumbs. I ate my toast in bed last night.

Oh crumbs Hubbles. Did you really think I’d forget?

Oh crumbs. Crumbs. Crumbs.


Take that, Mr Hubs.

Take those crumbs.

I got my reveng-umbles.

Blog Crush Monday

I am hereby admitting to my one terminal downfall. I fall in love easy. And there are just so many writers that make my heart ooze joy.

So even though frequently my posts have been lamer than lame, and more noob than N00b, I am going to point you in the fabulous directions of some of my favourite Blog Crushes. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Megan at Somewhat Voluble. She probably thinks I am stalking her now. Poor thing. But She is also one of those crazy girls who got married before 21 and her blog is utterly heartwarming.

ScoMan at A Name in your Recollection He recently joined Twitter, and we’ve become great friends. He posts once a week now a days, and even though I protest daily, he will contiue to do so. Sad Day.

Ron at Ronzworld has taken the blog world by storm. He is witty and fresh and inspiring.

Brandy at It’s like I’m…mmmagic Its like reading my alterego at times. Utterly fabulous!

Kerri at Your Wishcake. Another ridiculously heartwarming blogger. *sigh* She’s like the nice girl in all of us.

So there you have it. My newest blog crushes. I seriously have a reader of a gazzillion blogs and love them all. *double sigh*

Have a fabulous Monday dear ones! 🙂
