Summer Blog Challenge Week One

I found a Blog Challenge and although its Winter in little ol NZ (New Zealand), I thought it would be a great thing to do to get out there and have something to do over the gloomy days.

Its already 6 days in, but Im starting from the goes

Why are you doing this challenge.
I am doing this challenge for myself and to get out there in the blogging world. More for myself.

Post a picture of you smiling.

This is me on Monday 4th June 2012 the day after I got my hair cut

15 interesting facts about yourself

  • I like to read
  • I like to watch movies
  • Im a secret Fan Girl
  • I have two children (Andrew 8yo and Declan 5yo)
  • I live in a little town called Masterton, Wairarapa in New Zealand
  • I go to church
  • Im 28yo in August and I only got my second stage driver licence last July
  • I am a list freak
  • Sometimes I feel that my life is not as exciting as other peoples (especially when I read blogs)
  • I spend a lot of time on Pinterest
  • I want to travel the world, but have a fear of flying
  • I collect things
  • I started to scrapbook and have only done ONE layout in 5years lol
  • I dont drink alcohol and when I do, its only 1-2drinks in a blue moon
  • I have been with my best friend for nearly 10years and we are still in as much love as when we first met.
Meaning behind your blog name.
There isn't really a meaning behind my name. 7 years ago, I was just starting out on my own with my husband (we only just got together) and I baked and cooked and even though I had some slight depression, I had a zest for life. Over the years, I lost my zest for life and now I want to get it back again. My blog is about me having to answer to myself every day so I try to achieve something so I have something to post about.

Short term goals for this month and why those goals
  • To try and be more organised (my house is pretty small and cluttered with toys etc everywhere and dishes on the bench lol)
  • Do more with my boys (they are currently in an After School Program to interact with other children)
  • TBC (because this is very hard)

Nicknames you have & why you have them.
I don't really have any nicknames....I have lots from my childhood, but I that isn't my life anymore and the people that gave them to me aren't people I talk to anymore.

Picture of something that makes you happy.
This is a pic of my family and my brothers family.
