new zealand

New Zealand has always been the number one place on my bucket list, and it definitely lived up to the hype I have had inside my head for years! I am so incredibly excited to share our trip with everyone! Pretty much the entire time we were there, I was just in awe by the…

east coast

Our friends from the USA visited us recently! It was about a 2 week trip altogether, and we got so much accomplished! 2 weeks sounds long, but when you include traveling time and 3 different parts of the entire east coast involved, it goes by fast. We tried to fit in as much as possible…

diving

Wowwwww it’s been a while! Sorry to all 4 of my followers, I haven’t posted in a while. I’m watching House Hunters – Island Hunting, and totally judging the millionaire couple’s choices, as I sit here in my $5.00 shorts from Kmart. Anyways…after our visit home we moved into a more suburban area into a…

one year

We went to the beach a couple of weeks right before our ONE YEAR anniversary here in Australia and also our first visit back to the USA. It’s never too cold for the beach right?! We seriously can’t believe this is going so fast. We only have 12 more months left here (YIKES) and I…

the great barrier reef

This is going to be a super long post. Caution: Picture Explosion. I’m trying to get as many pictures in here as I can…I seriously think I took thousands of pictures and hundreds (I know this) of videos on this trip. The first day we flew in, we checked into our hotel for a night…

It’s been so fun and life changing. I’m sure my social media reflects just that – the positive,…

sydney

Finally made it to Sydney!!! Sydney was where we were supposed to get placed at first, but then at the last minute they notified us that we would be going to Melb instead! We drove to Sydney. We will never drive to Sydney again. We ended up stopping about halfway in the Australian Capital which…

nic’s visit

What an eventful 2 weeks! I’m honestly exhausted. We finally hosted our first guest here in ‘straya! We did so much while Nic was here, pretty much planned every single day out. The first day we went down to Sorrento – I made the guys get in and snorkel – it was so chilly this day!…

desummber thoughts

OMG! I have been neglecting my “blog”. Oops. I started working part-time so I have less boredom time to spend on fancy blog posts! The job is great, and working downtown (Aussies call it the CBD – Central Business District) is very festive with Christmas approaching. It is still so strange to have Christmas during…
