Friday, November 21, 2008 shop some more!

So I love shopping!! Who knew huh! I did some Christmas shopping today after work, yay! Can't wait to send them out! :D We also took our own Christmas picture for our Christmas cards, hopefully they come soon! I still need to finish a few things but for the most part, I am almost done!

The last few days/weeks have been quite busy in the Nguyen house! As usual, I am working like a monster, but finally get 2 days off a week and some shorter day shifts. My tips have paid for all my Christmas shopping which is nice! All the rest is going towards our big trip home in March! We are soooo excited!

Anyways, this week we went to a going away party for one of Tuan's coworkers. It was hosted by Germans. It was in a TINY room, and it was filled with all the NATO drivers. They eat raw meat and stinky cheese! ha! Briahna enjoyed it more than I did. Tuan's friends are pretty funny. The one's he talks to are German, Czech, and Norwegion. It is pretty cool to meet people from all over! Next week a few are coming over for Thanksgiving! Tuan is excited to cook a big dinner! Ill help him out...a little :D! What are everyone else's plans? Im sad we can't be there though!

I have one more test for school and I will be done for the semester! And one more class until I graduate with my AAS. It isn't much but it is finally something! I still don't know what to do for my next degree! Hm. I dunno what else to talk about. Nothing to exciting! Oh yea, if you read this, please comment me or e-mail me your address!! Christmas cards are coming!

Briahna is doing wonderfu! She is growing and learning more and more! We bought her a toy slide, she loves it! She is acting like a little mommy. She carries her baby around and covers it, and puts it to nap! I don't know how she learned that, as I never really showed her! She is crawling on everything! Ihave to put all the chairs away and make sure gates are up..otherwise she is on top of the table, couch, or up stairs! :D But i love her! She is learning all of her body partsand saying more and more words! She understands most things in both english and vietnamese. I am learning a lot as well!

Well that is all for now, hope to get on here next week again! Miss and love all of you! Hope you all have a Wonderful Thanksgiving!

I'm baaaacckkkk!!

(this picture is downtown K-town, that ball behind me spins in water. It was pretty cool)

Sorry Sorry Sorry I haven't blogged in forever! I have been a working woman! I am still working 6 nights a week at least!! I love working, but it can get to be too much!! So what has been going on the past few weeks...lets see here...

Tuan, Briahna, and I all were sick for about 4 days straight 2 weeks ago. We are thinking food poison maybe! Briahna still has been sick. I feel so bad for her, and everyone I ask, even the doctors, say that nothing is wrong and to "wait" it out.. for real?! My poor baby can't be sick all the time! She is still miss busy, just not as fast lately!

We took her out for Halloween! she was a little giraff! And the cutest baby out that night. We went a few blocks from our house to where all the British people live. They go ALL out! It was a good time though. (Look at the Pictures). Tuan dressed up as a mexican or something along those lines. It was too funny! Briahna got to pick out her candy, and seriously, she went for the healthy stuff ha!

I have been going to my fitness class on M and W. It is like 30 mins straight of hard core boot camp! I love it though! And Briahna can join me! It is wonderful ha!
I am getting along well with my chili's people. They are fun to hang out with! I have gone to a few German bars. Nothing special, they are tiny and crowded and smoking is allowed in some. Hella stinky! :D I am slowly but surely learning German. It is confusing though! Last night some people were trying to teach me naughty things, but I wasn't really following. everything sounds the same ha!

Today is my day off, so maybe we will go for dinner or something! Or I wouldn't mind laying on the couch all day! ha! The other day I was doing laundry after Tuan had started it, as I was putting the clothes in the dryer I noticed they were covered in little white things. I was like what the heck, so I dug in the washer some mroe and hmmm what do i find? I friggen DIAPER! Seriously, ah it exploded in there and all that little gels were stuck to everything! IT was I had to super wash everything again!

Have you guys been christmas shopping yet? I am starting mine now, esp since I have to send everything home! I need to make sure it gets home in time! I am trying to find good real German gifts for everyone, and fun toys fro Briahna! Any suggestions would be wonderful! :D

Okay so I think that is good for now! I am sure nothing too exciting here! I will try to keep blogging more often! love and miss u all! Oh yea, we are coming home in March!
