One month down, 11 to go! It’s time to take stock once again, inspired by Pip from Meet Me At Mikes.
Taking Stock is such a great way to look back at the month that was, breathe it all in and brace for the rest of the 2016. Here we go…
Taking Stock: January 2016
Making : Time for the important things… family, cooking & yoga
Cooking: All the things in my Bellini (poor lady’s Thermomix) that The Huz has affectionately nicknamed the ‘Thermomox’ or just ‘The Mox’ for short.
Drinking: Banana, Mango, Kale & Coconut water smoothies and Sleepytime Tea
Reading: I just finished Rosie Waterland’s Anti Cool Girl (Aweseome read!) and have just started Big Magic By Liz Gilbert
Wanting: A new hammock. I have the trees and the ropes but no hammock
Looking: Forward to seeing Zoolander 2
Playing: This addictive star wars game (R2D2 Bop It) Master 4 got for Chrissy
Deciding: Where to stay in Noosa for our family trip later in the year
Wishing: Summer holidays could continue all year
Enjoying: Summertime BBQ’s and get together’s with friends
Waiting: For the Easter break
Liking: All the first day back to school photos in my news feed
Wondering: How essential oils work?
Loving: The Australian Open Tennis
Pondering: What new TV show’s to watch when ratings season starts
Considering: A major home reno but no idea where to start
Buying: On sale from Witchery, Sportsgirl and Bohemian Traders
Watching: The Bachelor USA! It’s a whole different level than the Aussie show!
Hoping: Miss 6 settles into her new class ok
Marvelling: At my little first grader and all that she’s becomming
Cringing: That Miss 6 really really wants her ears pearced. I’d planned on waiting at least a couple more years but she’s bugging me every single day!
Needing: To get fitter and get back into running
Questioning: If I could do Feb Fast and give up wine for a month #notachance
Smelling: My blooming Frangipani’s. Reminds me of our wedding almost 9 years ago!
Wearing: Heels again after weeks in my Thongs and it’s killing me!
Following: Constance Hall #likeaqueen
Noticing: How often the shops have sales these days!
Knowing: That I need to cut back on the wine
Admiring: Outgoing Australian of the Year, Rosie Batty and the incredible work she has done over the past year in getting DV on the national agenda
Sorting: Everything. Room by room. We have just had hard collection and had the biggest clean up. I can’t believe how good de-cluttering makes you feel
Getting: Excited researching holiday accom – even though October is so far away!
Bookmarking: Bellini and Thermomix recipes. It really is a whole new world
Coveting: The new NutriBullet RX
Disliking: Footy thugs and the irresponsible things they do
Opening: A shoe box. My new shoes of prey just arrived!
Giggling: At all the things my kids say. Master 4… “When I grow up I want to be a work”
Feeling: Happy & Healthy – trying to stay in the holiday mind set for as long as possible
Snacking: On bliss balls and I can’t wait to try these 3 recipes
Helping: Master 4 learn how to wipe. Oh yeah!
