Blogger Challenge: Day 21

Day 21: Favorite Picture of yourself ALL TIME Why?

I mentioned in one of these previous challenges that I am not so much of a photo taking person even though I wish I could be, so it was kind of hard picking the picture I thought was my all time favourite. 

The one below has always been a favourite of mine. It was taken by my mum when we were out on one of our lunch dates.

There is a kind of innocence to it, even though that's exactly what I am, an innocent little bunny. 
I think that's why I like it, it captures ME. Literally. 

It also reminds me of how much time flies by without you even realising it. 
I had just about started university around this time (2009) I was in a new relationship with the love of my life, and I wasn't even sure where time would take me. Looking back, it's hard to believe how much time has flown since then and where I am now. 

I guess this is another reason I wish I took more photos, capturing memories like these.

Blogger Challenge: Day 20

Day 20: Nicknames

I've been called many things in my life, but the one that has stuck was given to me by my sister and that is 


Apparently I look like a bunny, might have something to do with the shape of my nose but whatever it is, people actually call me this. Not, once, or twice, or here and there, but all the time. Even I find myself integrating it into my actual name sometimes. 

Recently I have also had two names bestowed on me by two of my friends. The first is TALLULAH given to me by my GBF. This I don't know. It was kind out of the yellow, and really had nothing to do with anything. He is a man of so many words, kind of reminds me of Deborah Morgan in Dexter but a more relaxed version. When asked for an explanation, he just said it had a 'Lu' in it so it had to fit. Love it. 

Lastly I have a friend that specialises in giving nicknames, she takes pride in giving people what she calls an .R. name, and I have had not one but two .R. names (so I suppose that makes me special) the latest one she has given me LEI LEI, because she says she likes playing around with my name.

Blogger Challenge: Day 19

Day 19: Something You Miss

This is easy.

The Mr.

Being without him is hard sometimes. We've just spent an amazing week together, and now he is off again to do what he gotta do! Long distance is so hard, but I am so grateful for the time that we do get to spend together. I am also grateful for him for trying to make this work. We are such a team, him and I.

Now, I've got to wait literally a month till I get to see him again. *starts mental countdown*

Day 18: Favourite Place To Eat

This is hard.

I am not an eatter, so anywhere really.
As long as they have a great cocktail menu and a massive plate of chips then I am sure to be just fine.



A favorite place NOT to eat would be anywhere where they don't have the above. Especially, a well made plate of chips.

Oh and also, I suppose anywhere the Mr and I go on our dates is sure to be just fine too. Company makes all the difference.

Day 17: Something You're Looking Forward To



 I've literally just started a new chapter in my life. New city, new university, new everything, and I am just looking forward to everything it has to offer. A little scary, but exciting all the same.

If I Were a Boy! {Valentines Day Special}

I'ts the day of love! Valentines Day!

I really get in such a giddy mood when this day rolls around, not for anything specific really, but it's just nice to see all the love going around.

I love love, I really do. I am such a hopeless romatic that anything love related gets me going. It get's me in a little trouble sometimes because I usually picture this perfectly romantic situation in my head but in reality it doesn't quite turn out like that. That's okay {sometimes} because life isn't like the movies. But when days like this, valentines day, anniversaries come around.... I wish I were a boy! It sounds strange I know, because usally it's the girl that gets spoiled rotten on such days. Who wouldn't want that right? Well, no. I am glad I am a girl, I really am, especially with the man I have. But I just think I could be the perfect boyfriend, partner, what have you sometimes. 
Don't mind if I toot my imaginary horn, but me and my hopeless romantic self would spoil the beejezus out of whoever we are dating. I would make a small deal a big deal, a meaningless thing, so meaningful, and so on and so forth. That girl would be so lucky.

Or maybe, it's because I am a girl that I think this way? Hmmmm.

Whatever the case, in my own little world, right now I am a boy, and my girlfriend just woke up to rose petals all over the bed and floor, with a cute little note on the bedside saying 'beautiful, meet me downstairs'.... she would then follow the trail of roses to the dining room where she would find ready made breakfast for two.... {maybe, just maybe I will be the naked chef} but that's irrelevant. I would wish her a happy valentines day, and then proceed to open the breakfast plates. In each plate there would be ofcourse her favourite treats. Eggs benedict in one plate, freshly made toast in the other, red velvet cup cakes in other, and the last plate will hold two tickets to her favourite show {that night the ballet or something} late that day two dozen flowers would be delivered to her workplace, with a note saying 'can't wait to see you tonight' and the rest is history really.... but that is kind of how my day would be going right now. And I won't be like that just because it is valentines day.


Any way friends do have a fabulous day! I have been told to get 'ready' I don't know what that is code for, but let us see! Maybe I will have a real fancy story to tell you!

Blogger Challenge: Day 16

Day 16: Dream House

I spend a lot of time thinking about my 'dream house.' This is one thing I actually can't wait to have.

My Dream House Is.....

My Dream house IS, big and when I say big, I mean BIG. I want to have rooms that nobody even knows of, rooms that nobody even goes into, they are just there to look at but not to touch.

My Dream house IS perfectly lit all the time. And that is okay, because we don't have to worry about the electricity bill. : P

My Dream house IS known for having such an amazing beautiful kitchen.

My Dream house IS known for having the most amazing back yard that my kids and guests will never want to leave. 

My Dream house IS filled with fountains and water features

My Dream house IS filled with wings, east west, north, south, north west wing... all of it. 

My Dream house IS known for having a inside spa, tennis court, and swimming pool. Heated if you will. 

My Dream house IS all of this and more

Day 15: Bible Verse

*side note* I'M BACK!!!! it's been long since I've been without internet access and it's been killing me. But finally i'm online again and I'm settled in and I can get back into the swing of things. Pretty dad that this is not really 30 day challenge anymore, but... inin good spirit I am just going to continue with what I started, as if nothing ever happened. 

Any way. Day 15 made me smile. I personally need to make it a habit to know more of the bible. I know a lot, but not enough. Lately, I've been reading it a lot, and my favourite verse has to be psalm 91. A lot of people translate each verse to mean something different, but for me the whole psalm just speaks to me of God's protection over us. I think about the world we live in today full of danger everywhere, and I think how lucky blessed I am to still be here. A lot can happen in just a split second, and God never promised us a world without danger, but he always comes through whenever we do face any of these dangers. 
I like knowing this. 


Psalm 91 

1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High  will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say to the Lord 'My refuge and my fortress my God in whom I trust
3 For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper and the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you in His pinions, and under His wings you may seek refuge His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark

5 You will not be afraid of the terror by night or the arrow that flies by day
6 Of the pestilence that stalks in darkness or of the destruction that lays waste at noon
7A thousand ,ay fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand  but it shall not approach you 
8 You will only look on with your eyes and see the recompense of the wicked
9For you have made the LORD my refuge even the Most High your dwelling place
10 No evil befall you, nor will any plague come near your tent

11 For He will give His angels charge concerning you, to guard you in all your ways
12 They will bear you up in ther hands that you do not strike your foot against a stone 
13 You will tread upon thr lion and cobra, the young lion and the serpent you will trample down
14 Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him, I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name. 
15 He will call upon Mem and I will answer him I will be with him in trouble, I will rescue him and honor him
16 'With a long life I will satisfy him and let him see My salvation'
