New Zealand: Lord of the Rings Country

Last weekend, Chris & I had a nice weekend in Hamilton, Matamata and Tirau! We met up with Wugga and his partner Nicola for a nice dinner and stopped by my friend J-Dub's birthday party. :)

J-Dub is an amazing baker and even started her own cupcake//baking business!

my handsome husband :P

The next day we had an amazing brunch with mum-in-law in Matamata. I decided to be a tourist and take a photo in front of the Hobbiton sign! My in-laws actually live in Hobbiton errr Matamata where all the Hobbiton scenes in Lord of the Rings (and now The Hobbit) were actually filmed.

I wore this vintage plaid houndstooth coat I found while thrifting in Napier/Hawke's Bay! I was so pleased with this. Smeagol wants my coat, "Me wants it." :P

It's difficult putting effort in dressing up when it's so cold out and half of my clothes are non-functional and a bit outrageous. I have lots of crazy bold patterns that don't go with anything else and may not be as age appropriate anymore. My life is an indefinite transition right now, so I haven't bought much in the past few years. I can't wait to (sensibly) reconstruct my wardrobe. How convenient since I'm going back home (USA) next week!

I'm waiting for my friend Frodo...
