Ok so we have a busy and fabulous weekend! Last week was all about meeting new people and making some grand new friends for us!! All the time we have been here in Germany I have made a few friends and a lot of acquaintences(we don't hang out really but we get along kind of people). Last week I met 2 new families just coming in and let me tell you how ecstatic I was to find out that seriously we should all be sisters!! We like the same things, drink the same wine,love to travel, love to shop, put our kids ahead of everything else and are all extremely happily married. It is hard always moving around and meeting new people and trying to find that one person that you really connect with and know you will spending a lot of time with them and all be danged if I didn't have 2 fabulous women just fall right into my life with in a week of each other!! To say I was happy would be a total understatement......Fantabulous is more like it!!! Yes that's my word and you love it!!!
So the usual meet and greets and finding out everything we have in common and we started talking about traveling. I am so excited to start taking trips now!! Not just family trips but we have talked about just us girls trips and that sounds like a much needed break for me and a ton of fun! We are planning a trip to Poland of course for the pottery and also a trip to London and Paris as girls trips. Mr. M heard me talking about it and told me to go wherever I wanted and just to give him enough notice so he could be prepared...isn't he a doll?!!!! Man I love that man!!! So the planning has started and I will keep you all up to date on all of our fabulous trips when we figure out when we are going to do them.
Saturday we went to the indoor flea market at ROB and honestly it was..mehhhhhh..ok! Nothing fabulous that caught my eye so we moved onto the mall..now I love the mall I mean come on it's a MALL!!!! We walked around and again had a good time just chatting and walking and looking at stuff. We spent waaaaayyy to much money and laughed while doing it..hehe!!! When we first got to Germany we saw these beer steins and I wanted one.....BAAAAD!!!! Well after the first time we saw them we never saw them again until Saturday...ohhhh my eyes lit up and Mr. M said "don't put it down this time or you may not find it again" ...seee he is AWESOME!! So I got my stein..it is a commemoritive stein with a piece of the Berlin wall on it..fabulously gorgeous and all mine!!! Yes I did do the happy dance in the store and even the guy selling them was laughing at me...free show for all mall shoppers in the stein aisle!! LOL
Here are some photos of all the great stuff I have bought or been given lately...
So fabulous people have joined my life and I am ever so greatful for that!! It only took me being here a year to finally find the ones that will make my tour here in Germany the best it could be and it was so worth the wait!! Some fabulous gifts as well as shopping and I am so ready to start our travels now.
