Project Life, Week #1.

Please forgive me for the shoddy shots of my pages, but it's been a while since I have done a "crafty" post and I am a little rusty.
I have started (insert large cheer) with my Project Life. Last time I started, in 2012, I only got to week 4 so I am determined to actually finish this time. Or pass week 4, whichever comes first! I am moderately happy with these pages. It's not the look that I was going for, but I am hoping that that will come as I continue with the project.

I actually struggled finding photo's to start me off. My boys run screaming every time I even think about pointing a camera or phone at them and I guess I have to face facts and admit I am a little boring. I am also trying to find what style works for me as I don't want to doing this for hours, so I thought I would keep the pages simple with less embellishments than last time. Hopefully that will motivate me to keep going.

 Page Two:

Supplies: Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad. Becky Higgins Heritage Edition, Becky Higgins Midnight Edition.
Stamps: Kellie Stamps: Summer Fun 4x6 stamp set, You Are The Best 4x6 stamp set.

Loving: I am loving that the kids are back at school and that we are back into a routine (if you read my last "currently" post you would know how ironic this sounds...). I am loving that I have a week of holidays that I am free to do what I want in. 

Reading: Honestly, I really haven't had that much time to read over the holidays. I am finding that I really miss getting lost into a good book.

Eating: Ok, I have been soooooooo good from the start of January and have even lost a kilogram or two in the process. I have had no chocolate and if I get hungry between meals I am eating almonds! Let's see how long I can keep it up, but loosing some weight and getting fitter are on my goals list for this year!

Drinking: Smoothies people!! Smoothies!! I received a Ninja blender for Christmas from my boys and I LOVE IT!! I have found several really good smoothie recipes on Pintrest and on the internet (which I plan to share at a later date) so not only am I changing some really bad eating habits into healthy ones, I am feeling great too! 
Anticipating:  This may sound a bit corny, but I am really looking forward to the new year and all the possibilities that it could bring.

Watching: Over the school holidays I finished watching Sex and the City... all 6 seasons. I really enjoyed it and now that all my regular favourite programs have started again I am looking forward to catching up on them too. 

Planning: BJ turns 16 on the 9th of February. It's kind of one of those bitter sweet moments because although he's reached that particular milestone in his life he won't get to do the things that a normal 16 year dreams of. I know HE doesn't care, but Andy and I are a little sad anyway.

Need to Finish: I really haven't got anything that I need to get finished at the moment... But the year is young!

Around Here Lately...

I know everyone keeps saying it but it was SO hot here last week. The boys were extremely lucky and invited to swim in a friends pool whenever they wanted... So that's what they did. Me, well I had to work in a hot, average (meaning hardly works) air conditioned bakery. Yes, please feel free to feel very sorry for me...

* Cheesecake for dessert * Wendy eating cheesecake for dessert * Pool fun *
* Banana? * This is what you do for 3 1/2 hours in a car... * Smoke from a bushfire
 and a storm coming in * Track Day *
