  1. Theme Night Inspiration

    Ooo, just came across this wonderful site, Hostess with the Mostess. So much inspiration for dinner parties. I get really nervous about entertaining for outsiders, but I love putting together a theme night when it’s just family. Below are a few of my favourites that I’ve gotten around to uploading:

  2. Kitchy

    Ahh, remember when I thought I was recommitting to blogging more regularly? Well, my life has changed dramatically since then, and I can no longer commit to that:

  3. 5-Year Ausiversary

    As of last week, I have been in Brisbane for five years. FIVE. YEARS. I believe that this takes the record as the longest I’ve been in any one spot since high school.

    I’ve found it a bit funny as I’ve tried to reflect back to my feelings at the time. I was in love and excited about the adventurous possibilities. I couldn’t wait to explore and settle in and pick up the accent. I looked forward to warmth and tropical weather and ocean and kangaroos. I couldn’t wait to be with my future husband and his family and make friends who might find me to be as exotic as I found him in America.

    Wow, I could hardly have been more disillusioned, and culture shock is a real b*tch.

    [NOTE: That’s the extent of what I’ve had saved in draft for over a week now. I was going to try and elaborate a little more on how things have changed, but I don’t really know what to say. Things here are good. I am pretty much enjoying myself daily.]
