Germany is COLD

Hey guys!

So as we are prepping for our scary-close move (movers are coming TOMORROW!) I've made the alarming realization that Germany is going to be significantly colder that what we are used to here in the American Southwest. It was warmer last week than Bavaria is going to be at the height of summer!  So I've been scrambling to assemble winter wardrobes for both me and hubby. Being a manly, tough it out guy Hubby was especially in dire need of warmer clothes. The timing is perfect- all of the end-of-season clearance is going on so we loaded him up at target with sweaters, wool socks, thermal tops, hats, gloves, scarves, and everything else I could think of. I already have a few warm coats and wool sweaters since I dress up for work but I did treat myself to a few things:

Shopping Trip!

Hey guys!

It's been chilly lately, so I've been careful to bundle up as we start stocking up on various things for the move. 

We are moving!

Hey guys!

Sorry for all the quiet lately. I've been sitting on some news for a while. Now that we've broken the news to our families and my boss, an even made it "Facebook official" I feel like I can share with all of you:

Happy Birthdays!

Hey guys!

This week we celebrate birthdays. My dad turned sixty on Monday and yesterday was my birthday.

We went to visit my parents and my mother sprung some birthday embarassment on him:

But there was cake so he forgave her:

For my birthday, I treated myself to a pedicure yesterday after work and hubby surprised me with takeout and a camcorder. 

How cool is this?!?  I've been wanting one for a while and it's so sweet that he remembered.

One more day of work and then I get a little party with family and a few friends. Yay!

Stay cool!

A Foggy Day

Hey guys!

I wanted to share some cool picture I took on Tuesday morning when we had an unbelievably rare day of fog. Having grown up in the Bay Area, fog is pretty normal to me despite the fact that we NEVER get it here in the desert so this was a rare treat!

This is the view over our side gate. The fog was so thick that even looking at the houses across the street were hazy. 

Here's the first picture I took when the flash went off. 

You can see why I retook it, but it also looks pretty neat with the swirling fog.
