Halloween

Today is Halloween here in NZ. Halloween is my favorite holiday hahhahaha and I am pretty sure it is not technically a holiday at all, I just love dressing up and partying it is so much more fun when I am dressed really weird. Anyways I am up this early on a Saturday because I have to work at HUE the hair place from 9 till 5, rush home, take a nap, get dressed up, and go out and meet Alina and Tom at the Halloween party.

I never get sick and I am still not sure if I am actually sick or just having allergies from the weather changing, but I have a feeling the kids I watch gave me something. I am thinking its almost over at this point but maybe I should get the flu shot!
I will post pictures of our Halloween costumes as soon as we put them on.

Another Vacation

My Parents arrived like I said in the last blog last Saturday early in the morning! We picked them up from the airport and headed to Peter and Rebecca's house, where we settled in and had a coffee. The first day was breakfast out, dad visiting Mel and Craig, mom napping at our place, and finally out to dinner at Squid Row. Sunday was another early morning starting in Devonport, catching the ferry to Waiheke Island, drinking wine at stoney ridge, and ending with a bbq at Pete and Rebecca's.





Second day at Stoney Ridge Winery Below

Later today I will catch up with the rest of the trip so far!

Our Place Sorted

This morning I woke up with a huge head ache so I had to miss swim, which is really sad but oh well the thought of flipping my head back and fourth was not very appealing. After caffeine and some aspirin I feel a lot better and went on an organizing and cleaning spree! My parents are coming tomorrow early morning and they will want to see our place so I thought I better make it look good! I also decided to do laundry because it is going to be crazy next week and it is sunny today. Not having a dryer really shows you how important it is to wear your clothes more then once hahhaha.
As requested by Mel, here is a picture tour of our place. We still need a small table and chairs and probably another shelf for dishes, but so far it is all working out.
BELOW IS THE "KITCHEN"

BELOW IS THE LIVING ROOM AND MY DESK



BELOW IS THE BATHROOM

BELOW IS OUR BEDROOM AND FINISHED WARDROBE.
IT TURNED OUT SO GOOD, GRANT DID AN EXCELLENT JOB, HE IS SO CRAFTY!
I MADE THE CURTAINS AND I WILL JUST TELL MY SELF WHAT A GOOD JOB I DID ALSO, SOMEONE HAS TO! GOOD JOB SHANNON AND GRANT!


HERE IS JUST THE BEGINNING OF SOME DECORATIONS HA HA MEXICAN GET UP AND MY MIRROR.

We are trying not to put holes in the walls so everything that is hung up will have to be put on those stick um hooks. That explains why our walls are so bare, we are trying to really think about what we do before we just go randomly throwing things up.
Sorry I have not been making a lot of posts but now that I have a real job I have a lot less time.
Tomorrow we pick up my mom and dad at 7am and on top of working I will be spending all my extra time with them so I am not sure when I will get time to do a blog but I will try! Oh yeah Tuesday is my Birthday so yay I am another year older and happy to be alive!

Work Week!

Today was my second week on the nanny job and this first day went so much better then last week who knows how tomorrow will go? We did the normal routine and then to the park for some playing yay!





It rained all day on and off but more off then on so that was good. After I was done with work I raced home and had a snack then it was off to my yoga class till 9pm. I really like the yoga class only problem was it was really cold in the room so I need to wear more layers and bring a blanket or something. Looking forward to my parents visit!

Merry Monday

This morning I went to my swim class and came home right in time to bring the laundry in before it started pouring rain again hahhaha. It was suppose to be sunny all day I guess they were wrong!

I don't have work today so I have just been organizing our living room and going through some stuff that I haven't had time to do. Like I went through some pictures from the other night at Mel's party and found this video which was a perfect example of Grant entertaining himself and everyone else after the band stopped. Lip singing and air guitar so funny!

Tonight I have a nanny seminar so I won't be home till late and tomorrow my work week starts all over again with Nannying! yikes! And this weekend my parents come to visit yay!

Afghan Cookie Party

Friday I did laundry and man was that a pain! It rained all day on and off so it was almost impossible to dry the clothes we ended up having to put them in the bathroom with the heater on and the fan going! How do people live like this? In summer laundry will be easy!


This is the view of our 2 sliding doors the right one is our room
Below is the view off the balcony
Most of Saturday was spent at my new job at the hair coloring place HUE. I am the front desk person for Thursday and Saturdays. So with both jobs I have almost 40 hours yay! I really like how I am doing 2 completely different things also. All the people at Hue are really nice to top it off. In the early evening we went grocery store shopping and stocked up and had burritos for dinner.
Sunday morning after breakfast we had an Afghan cookie party. They are Grant's favorite cookie and I must say they are one of the best cookies I have ever had.

yum yum
After our cookies we went shopping for Halloween costumes but didn't end up getting anything because we changed our minds about what we might be.
