I have been tagged by the crafty and creative Shalet at Peculiar Momma to reveal some weird and wonderful tidbits about myself. But because I have already bored you with random facts about myself before I thought I'd do something a little different! Being mindful of Thanksgiving I decided to list 7 random things that make me happy and that I am thankful for. Now you may gasp when see that I have not listed my ever patient husband and the fruit of his loin..( my 3 wonderful children)...but I am assuming that they are a given. It goes unsaid that I am forever grateful and thankful for having them in my life. That being said I assembled a bit of a Thankful mosaic.
For those that are struggling with some of the is the list
1 - My most favorite fruit in the world- passionfruit. Even the name is yummy. I haven't eaten it for nearly 5 years as we can't find where to buy it here in the U.S.
2 - Vegemite. Being an Aussie girl through and through I just can't live without spreading this on my toast in the morning...( and IS black!)
3 - Margaritas...when God created alcohol he had mothers in mind!
4 - Needs no description. Life would not be worth living without it!
5 - My new glasses. Although it reminds me I am getting older at least I can see now overall they are a good thing!
6 - I dream of going back to Europe with my hubby again one day. We spent a blissful 6 months vacationing there together back in day!
7 - I'm LOVING my Canon Rebel Xsi. I think my family are over my constant snapping their every movement though.
8 - (Yes...I know I said 7 but I couldn't do an uneven number of pics in my mosaic, so...) This is where I will be on Christmas day this year..lying on the beach in Noosa... must say...I AM LOVING THAT!
Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. so creative and pictures say so much YES! you will have pictures to add from your cool!

  2. Does passion fruit really look like that on the inside? Cuz it looks pretty gross. And seriously, you spread yeast on your toast? Oh I'm totally with you on the rest of them and envious of your Christmas holiday. =) Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. I have never ever tried vegemite. Also never been to Australia. And I recognize that fountain. I suspect it will be a long time before I get to go back there ...

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Happy Thanksgiving ...those are wonderful things to be thankful for.

  5. I can't agree with you more passionfruit it is so yum. Our passionfruit vine died off last year - apparently they have a limited life - and we've been buying since. You know they can cost over $1.00 each here in Melbourne, which I think is a lot. I read a Matt Moran recipe for a passionfruit curd tart which asked for a litre, a litre of STRAINED passionfruit juice!!

  6. I can't beleive passionfruit is hard to buy in the US.
    Passionfruit on top of a pavlova!! yum.
    Vegimite and cocktails are just as good.

  7. Love the thought on margaritas - and of course the chocolate.

    and quite envious of number 8 as well.

  8. This is absolutely WONDERFUL! Amen on the chocolate . . . and though I've given up the alcohol . . . every now and again an ice cold Guinness Extra Stout sounds REALLY good. (Is it a bad sign that my mouth is watering at the thought of this at 9:45 a.m.?) Hmmmm . . . ;)

    I'll bet you're counting the days until Christmas! You lucky, lucky girl!

  9. vegemite!? a true aussie indeed. this american girl tried it and...YUCK!
    ; )
    i prefer peanut butter on my toast.

  10. Hehe Vegimite is great on toast, so i chocolate, photography, alchohol [Mum would kill me if she saw that! :x ], I cant believe it either that passionfruit is hard to get over in the US, and an Australian beach is best place to spend the Christmas break.
