Now & Then

18 February 2014

I found this fun idea on one of my new favourite blogs, Aileen Allen's At Home in Love.  I thought it was such a wonderful way to take a trip down memory lane, especially as this year I will have finished school 10 years ago.

Where has 10 years gone?  It feels like yesterday I was attending school everyday, in my blue uniform, playing hockey in the afternoons and going to the movies on the weekend with my friends.  Those were the days.  Of course I miss the good ol' days but those are what made me the person I am today.  And today I am a happy wife and mother who is incredibly grateful for everything in my life right now.

So lets see how things have changed shall we?


Now // Channing Tatum, Jospeh Gordon Levitt, Mani (my gorgeous husband)
Then // Adam Brody, Ryan Gosling and my high school crush


Now // The Following, Dexter, Breaking Bad, Modern Family
Then // The OC, Friends, CSI, Desperate Housewives


Now // Mumford & Sons, Biffy Clyro
Then // James, Westlife (yes and I am not ashamed to admit it!), The Atari and many more


Now // Parenting books!
Then // Toni Parsons, Lisa Jewel, Marian Keyes


Now // I love jeans, tops, cardigans and my converse.
Then // Jeans, hoodies, quite sporty.


Now // Straightened, either up but mostly down
Then // Short, below my ears - I hated my hair back then.


Now // Baking, blogging, reading
Then // Going to the movies, hanging out at friends houses


Now // To make my blog a success, extend our house and or even move back to South Africa.
Then // Travel around the world and meet someone I can settle down with (success!!)


Now // Get a good job, have more kids, be happy and take life as it comes.
Then // Travel, get a degree, get a job, get married, have kids.

Only if you fancy playing along,  Lazy Daisy Jones, Dusty and Nikki - why not share your Now & Then too?
