November..really? c'mon!

I cannot believe that it is November...where did the year go?? crazy!
I have been so busy the last few weeks that I've struggled to find time to blog. I have lots of things I want to share though, so will hopefully get them up this weekend sometime.
For now I'm linking up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for her November currently.

Listening - Who doesn't love Seinfeld?! The humour was largely lost on me as a child and I never found it overly funny. Things have changed. I love the dry humour and sarcasm, cracks me up!

Loving - My new kikki-k time planner. It's so super cute!! I have been watching video after video of decorating and using the planner. The best thing is that you can buy or print refills for each year. 

Thinking - I interviewed today for an ongoing position at my school and found out tonight that I got it!! I cannot explain how excited and over the moon I am. I love my school and the staff. I couldn't be happier right now. 

Wanting - I have a problem that involves Christmas jumpers and Christmas themed clothing. There is a slight problem though....Christmas is hot in Australia. This sucks for me. Who wants to be walking around in a knitted jumper in 28 degree heat. Not me. 

Needing - I've said it before and I'll say it again. I-NEED-TO-STOP-SPENDING!! But I can not help it. Truly. 

Reading - Reading? Huh? Whats that? I wish I had the time to read. Thats what holidays are for. 

Head over to Farley's blog to check out what everyone else is up to :)


  1. First, your blog is so cute! Secondly, congrats on getting the job! It's the best feeling ever and I'm wishing you the very best :) And last, I feel you on the spending. I'm a spending machine. I don't know why I like to give all the money I work away on whatever it is, but I confess to spending a ton. Hopefully you have better luck with it than I!

    1. Thanks Hannah! Spending is such a hard habit to break, especially now that online shopping is so easy! Thanks for your kind words :)

  2. Congratulations on the new position!!!

    I can't imagine a hot Christmas! That must be weird! Although I guess if you're used to it, it's no big deal. I'm from Canada, it's always cold on Christmas here!

    And, like you, I have a hard time not spending. It's just, well, so much fun! haha Right now, I'm buying lots for my son. It's my way of justifying what I'm spending, because it's not for me! haha

    1. I'm so jealous Linda! I watch a lot of shopping hauls on YouTube and feel very envious when I see people rugging up in Christmas jumpers and beanies and sipping hot chocolate lol I'm such a sucker for a good cliche ;)

  3. Congrats on the ongoing position at your school! I agree it is just so hard to stop spending. I am currently addicted to clip art. I am not a super huge fan of the cold, but I can't imagine Christmas any other way. I hope to visit Australia one of these days, so I'll have to go during my winter so it is a nice warm get away.

    1. Hi Laura :) A big chunk of my money also goes to clipart, but it's tax deductible so I can justify it! I love the cold, nothing better than warm socks, boots, scarves and beanies :) The town I live in is at the bottom of Australia, so we get a lot of cold weather, lucky for me lol

  4. Zoe,

    Congrats on your new job position! It's hot in Brazil too during's a super weird feeling!

    1. Thanks so much! I'm very excited and grateful to have gotten it :) Oh Brazil! I would love to visit there one day.
      Thanks for reading :)

  5. Found you from Farley's Currently! I just saw a post on instagram about the Kikki.K. planner. It looks too cute!! Congratulations on your position! I love your colorful blog design!
