8 Things I love this week: New Zealand, Zumba, Love on Top

Time for another gratitude round up…

Our trip to New Zealand

We had a fantastic first family of four holiday to New Zealand. The only problem being that it was too short! You can read more about it over on y travel blog on our posts written about the New Zealand trip, or see some photos of our family time in Rotorua.

Speaking at the Australian Writers Convention

I was incredibly nervous to be talking about writing and blogging to a group of professional writers. I kept thinking they would check my blog and see how bad my writing is!! It, however, went really well. They were a receptive audience, who were very excited by the possibility of travel blogging and the opportunities available in Australia.

Inspirational Quote

“The brick walls are not there to keep us out; the brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something”- Randy Pausch


I am going Zumba mad lately, doing it every day. I love it because it is fun exercise. I am sure I look ridiculous, and Craig giggles a lot. I would never call myself a dancer, but my soul is loving it as my body so who cares!

Song of the Week: Love on Top by Beyonce

I love the soul in this song! So much fun.

I don’t know how she manages to dance in that black suit at the end without her boobs flopping out.

Breaking through fears and just doing it

Four years ago I met one of the most inspirational person, Yossi Ghinsberg, whose stories and lessons learned from them have had a huge impact on my life. I have really wanted to interview him on our podcast for a very long time, but have been too scared to ask.

Last night, I just got over that and asked. Feels good to break through your fear barriers. Now if only he’ll say yes! If he does I will be stoked, yet will freak out.

Blog Post: The Difference between You and the Most incredible People on Earth- Corbert Barr

I love this post by Corbert Barr outlining how you can be extraordinary. It just means doing a few extra things that others aren’t willing to do.

It is similar to my guest post this week on Lifehack: how to go from ordinary to extraordinary

      Yeah, they have to be using something. She better enjoy it because once that baby comes those girls just aren’t going to sit up that perkily anymore!
