I've done this before here! And really the list hasn't wavered terribly much. Soooo, how about 5 qualities I find attractive in a man? I'll do two lists, one physically, one personality traits etc... Just to make it fair :)
Gotta be funny. This is a must. I can't stand men that take themselves too seriously and, lets be honest...we just wouldn't gel well together if you didn't laugh at my jokes, I'm hilarious!
Gamers. Even if you don't play I can probably get on with you, but you need to be able to put up with the hours of time I put into games... and then listen to me talk about it. Lol.
Intelligent. Nuff said.
Skill wise, if they can play a musical instrument and are good with their hands (handy man stuff girls, not what you're thinking :P) then they're a goer.
Is that 5? Can I also throw in a cheeky 6 if I can't lump those other two together - politeness. Which I know may seem silly but let me explain. I love that quote that's flying around the internet lately that says something like 'Being polite to me but an asshole to a waitress doesn't make you a nice person' sums it up perfectly.
Tattoooooooos! I know, and I apologise, but meh. Men with tatts are hot. The geekier the tattoo, the better in my opinion. Tall. Dark hair. Stubble... ooo yes stubble. Aaaaand.....oh, they gotta smell good. Not, like bajillion dollar cologne good, just not stinky man smell.
And just because I can... I'm going to add a celebrity to my list from the previous post I talked about earlier. This man just gets better looking the older he gets.... or maybe I'm getting old? I don't know.
Leo, my heart will go on <3

Only because it's much much easier I'm going to go with my immediate family - the ones I see day-to-day and make my life worth living <3
Mr Man: The best dadda and husband ever. Love.Him.To.Bits.
Miss Leah: This girl lights up my world. I can be having the shittiest day and being with her makes it all better. The older she gets the more amazing she gets, and more affectionate and loving. She's just the sweetest girl.
The Jake and the Shake: Fur babies. Shakespeare has been with me for over 10 years... I can't get rid of the little bugger <3. And Jake, well, as naughty and a stinky as he can be... we love the big softie, almost as much as he loves us.
Pepe 2.0: Vomiting on a shoulder near you in early September 2014. Things we know about baby so far: The heartbeat is outstanding, pepe likes to do the worm, Leah has decided the baby should be called 'Happy' which leads me to believe she also wants a Dopey, sleepy, grumpy.....
So that's my tribe. We're a motley bunch but we work well together. You can also see some backlinks of posts I've written about us on the 'Our Family' tab. Enjoy xox

I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something that you can be thankful for... no matter how simple it is.
It has been a ridiculously busy week - back to school and a sick wee girl on top of all the other craziness that goes on around here. Phew! TGIF!
I'm loving Waitangi Day! Whoever's brilliant idea it was to have the first week of school missing the Thursday out of it gets the nod in my books. It was a well needed opportunity to have a sleep in... even if I had to bribe Mr. Man to get up with Leah so I could.
Someone has been loving that mummy decided to have some ice cream in the house and is LOVING ice cream cones. I'm just loving her saying "mmm Ice cream is delicious, it's my favourite!" and "sanks mumma, you're the best!" whilst she's eating said cone.
Loving the Fat mum slim photo a day challenge this year. Have done most days and am doing a pretty good job on remembering.
Love how we let elmo see what's what.
Loving this boy despite his naughtiness. There's just something about 60kgs of dog thinking he's a puppy that cracks me up. Love you Jakey <3
And lastly but not least, I love my new Mario game on DS. I was sad when I finished Zelda but am happy that I had something I got into straight away to go on with. Thanks for the birthday present Mr Man!

Day 8 & 9:
What I ate today.
Today isn't over, and I find this one incredibly boring on a normal day. So, I'll write what I'm planning to eat?
Breakfast: Morning sickness... nothin'
Lunch: Maybe a slice of pizza if I'm feeling up to it.
Dinner: Spag bol.
How important you think education is
I must think it's fairly important huh? I'm a teacher! There is a part of the video I am going to attach below that says if the drop out rates in the states of Native Amercians were cut in half (80% down to 40%) then it would benefit their economy by $1 trillion over 10 years. That surely highlights how important an education is right?
I although do think the word 'education' needs to be rethought in some people's minds, as the video also goes over. I agree wholeheartedly with the sentiment of the video and what it says about what some (and unfortunately those who are making legislation) consider to be 'education'. So, without further adieu... I'll let Ken speak for me <3
