Things I'm Loving Number Thirteen!

Making Biscotti.

Flat Whites. A friend treated us to a couple of boxes of these on wednesday. Yum...

The two together? Pure bliss!

Pinterest. An online pinboard website where you can store and share visual ideas. I'm using it for birthday cake ideas, Family portrait ideas and to store dreams...

Kiwi Dip that turns into an awesome sauce for Tuna Pasta Bake.
Our newly formed Mom's Coffee Group.

LOVING wednesdays - even though I have to vacuum twice ;)

A shared burden is a burden halved, and I can see ladies who have been uplifted just by sitting and talking.
Hearing different ideas and solutions to baby-related problems.

I can personally attest to a renewed sense of energy as a result!

DIY haircuts and the fact that you can learn how on YouTube!

I'm loving the New Zealand medical system - the fact that it's free for little kids - no medical insurance necessary! And the practice we use is so friendly and family-oriented - they know your name and the names of your kids...

Mainfreight Apples!

Every year this time Mainfreight gives out a bucket of apples to each of it's employees. I think it's a really nice touch. This is the third year we've gotten them and I can tell you that they make really good Apple Crumble.

Especially if you use Jamie Oliver's recipe.

This year they have been used as a first fruit for Blossom.

She's loving Mainfreight Apples!

Linking up with PaisleyJade.



  1. yay for your mum's group Renette :)

    Yay for the apples as well... they are really yummy at this time of year.

  2. Loving your list! Your haircut is amazing (was trying to comment when you did a post on it but was on dialup and having probs). Beautiful!!

  3. baby groups are great, we had a new one here when I had my last... I agree with " a problem shared is a problem halved" to true :)
    You remind me I must try to make some biscotti! yum

  4. When my kids were small I practically lived for playgroups especially as none of my immediate family were here in Australia..they are Kiwis! It was great to feel that you weren't alone with the dramas of marriage and kids.

  5. WOW! You did such an amazing job with the DIY cut! Clever! Love biscotti! And mum's groups! :)
