Ahhh…It’s been over a month since I last posted- so very sad and embarrassing!
Things have been HAPPENING I tell ya!
Mid-December I was blessed with a new job at a large Global/Multi-national company- It was so exciting walking in last Monday and knowing that there were over 15 colleagues!
They flew me down to Melbourne for the most part of last week as part of an induction program- All a big learning curve, but a great one!
Below are some of the photos from the past 3 weeks.
These included our Church’s General Conference, the trip down to Melbourne and a few Christmas pictures!

So I’ve been tasked with the job to provide “snacks” for Christmas Day lunch…and the angels sing Hallelujah!!
I’m not into the whole slave away in the kitchen for 10 hours thing and I’m definitely not a Baker when my best friend is involved as she is THE ultimate baker, so snacks I can do!
I’m not talking about your typical chips in a bowl or nut mix from your local Coles or Woolworth’s (though they will both be present) I’m talking something that involves a little work baby!!
I’m actually really looking forward to what lays ahead! I can definitely get creative (thank you Pinterest) while using food I know my family will LOVE to snack on!
Below are some of my inspiration pictures!! (Or in other words, the exact snacks I’m going to try to attempt!) If you follow me on instagram you’ll see all my recreations next week!

This week has been a struggle- work, the weather, not having time to do anything I want to do…argh! So ready for it to be over!
I hope you have a great weekend and I’ll catch you on Monday!
These Pom Pom napkin rings are cute!
Herbed sea salt makes for a beautiful gift!
A gold Christmas Garland is my kind of thing!
I’m drooling over this red dress. Please..if anyone knows where it is from??
I think these Oreo Marshmallows are in order!
DIY bookends are a great idea! (Still trying to come up with a different figurine though..)

Last year I designed an advent calendar for the husband- the boxes had little gifts in them- vouchers, golf balls, golf tee’s, a polo shirt, Dr Pepper etc It was a great idea however by the end of 20 something days I was OVER IT!
Seriously..you know how hard it is coming up with 24 gifts and keeping it under some kind of budget?! A little kid would love a packet of $2 pencils, but no, not the husband..haha..
But, because I can’t resist a challenge and I absolutely love Christmas- this year I’m thinking of doing an advent calendar again!
Not sure what the contents will be but at least I have a few really nice designs to pick from!
