Can you believe it’s halfway through 2014 already?
I feel like my mother when I say this year is flying by but it’s true. Do you think 2014 is fast or is it just us?
Back in January I shared this list on Hair Romance inspired by Styling You and Meet Me at Mike’s. Sam at The Annoyed Thyroid also updated her list for the mid-year point and I thought it was a great way to mark how 2014 is going for us.
By the way, we wrote our lists separately and just combined them for this post. I love how similar some of our responses are, and how random others are.
Mr: Mrs Romance breakfast when she’s not expecting it.
Mrs: More travel plans. Trying to tick some places off my bucket list.
Mr: On gas!
Mrs: My peanut butter choc chip cookies, and getting ready for a dinner party this Saturday night.
Mr: Game of Thrones obsessively.
Mrs: Renegade collective magazine, Xero for Dummies and lots of blogs.
Mr: George R R Martin to hurry the hell up and finish writing Game of Thrones!
Mrs: The weather to warm up a little. I’m no good at winter. Even the mild Sydney winters are too cold for me.
Mr: Forward to the next half of 2014!
Mrs: Forward to some big adventures ahead.

Mrs: Australia had made it past the group stage in the World Cup.
Mrs: Life. Things are pretty good right now.

Mrs: For peony season.
Mr: How Katrina from TheOrganisedHousewife.com.au dealt with her cybersquatting incident.

Mr: If bellybutton fluff and pocket fluff are the same thing and where it all comes from.
Mrs: Where the first half of 2014 went!
Mr: Working with Christina on Mr & Mrs Romance.

Mrs: Some new goals for 2014 and beyond.

Mrs: How much fun it is to work together.
Mr: More sleep – especially after this World Cup – but knowing I probably won’t get it!

Mr: Those peanut butter choc chip cookies coming out of the oven! Thank you, Mrs Romance!
Mrs: The salty air during our weekend at the beach.

Mrs: New shoes. That part of my wardrobe does not need de-cluttering 😉
Mr: Published on ProBlogger!
Mrs: Up early for stair runs, though I have missed a few weeks lately.
Mr: Lots of things: Jamie Oliver, signs using ‘everyday’ when they mean ‘every day’, people not looking when they walk out of shops and bumping into me, a strange low subsonic rumble from nearby road works that wakes me up every morning… and being a ranter.

Mr: My birthday scotch! Thank you, Mrs Romance. X
Mrs: Champagne bottles!
