New finds

     Hello all. After a seemingly never ending week, it is finally the weekend. Today I spent the day shopping with hubs and bought a really cute pair of work shoes. He bought half the mall. Then we returned home, I finished my weekly paper, this week on Schizophrenia and then headed to the gym. I have decided to set small, achievable goals for myself.
     This week: Go to the gym 7 days in a row and do 30 minutes on the StairMaster...3 days down, 4 to go. I hope to keep this up until Christmas. By then I should literally have an ass made out of granite.
     Now I am sitting on the couch half watching one of the most terrible movies ever made, Swinging with the may very well only have been released in China. It has Mandy Moore in it and she proves again that she cannot for the life of her act AT ALL. Plus she is trying to look bohemian and relaxed in this and ends up looking like a crazy nutbag. Anyway, with this dribble on in the background I can focus on reading other peoples blogs and updating anyone that might care on my life.
     So, my new finds this week are 2 adorable new blogs and an AWESOME website.
  1. Living Our Love Song This woman is the most gifted photographer. I am so jealous. Add to that the fact that she looks beautiful even when she's 39 weeks pregnant! I love blogs where I get to read about people's pregnancy. My goal in life is to be able to set up some sort of store/center that helps/treats/pampers pregnant women.
  2. The Pavs This blog makes me miss home. I miss the South so much and she is so southern! She just had a baby and was also a beautiful pregnant lady! She has a great sense of humor and her blog is hilarious.
Travel Hacking Cartel which is a website that pretty much tells you how to earn frequent flyer miles by doing what you already do. They guarantee that if you follow their advise you can earn a fly flight every quarter and 100,000 miles a year. So, their first piece of advise is to set a goal.

Goal 1: Here it is: Have my trip to Australia in January paid for as much as possible by points instead of my own money :)
Goal 2: Fly to Hong Kong for free next year
Goal 3: Vacation to French Polynesia sometime in the next 2 years

     I will keep you updated on my progress and any outcomes, positive or negative. If you check it out and like it too, make sure to use my link...because I get 500 points if you sign up :)
     Anyway, I hope everyone had a great week and has a great weekend! Oh, and in the spirit of all the cute baby pictures I've seen lately here are some pictures of the two cutest babies ever born...yet. Obviously, a mixture of these two specimen might give them a ride for their money.
I thought I had an even cuter one (how is it possible?) but like so many things...its not in Beijing


  1. Thanks so much for the sweet comments! I just signed up to be a follower of your blog - looking forward to catching up and reading more in the future :) So nice to "meet" you!!

  2. Love both of those blogs too!! I hope all is well in China!!
