This word simply popped up in my mind today. Random, but a small emotional breakthrough. So I googled the word, and found the Serenity Prayer. I heard this quite some time ago, but it just made my day. It's so simple and so true right now with things going on in my life.

I hope you can get a little something out of this as well!

Where have you been? I have missed you more than you could ever know! I would love for you to come back and visit me at night again! We need to get down with this sleeping business! Below is a shot of me, sleeping through the entire bus tour of Belgium! :( I tried soooo hard to stay awake!

So there you have it! I have been extremely exhausted! I would so much love to sleep for more than an hour at a time! If I added the hours up that I have actually slept the past 2 weeks, it has been no more than 5 hours of actual sleep. Just can't get my mind to relax and let me sleep!

On a better note, B is my love! She is too funny and full of the business! :) The silly things she comes up with, just make my day! Today she brought me a special delivery, she told me she took the train to get it to me! :) She did get 4 more spider bites! Oh shiza! I have searched my house high and low and dusted and vaccumed, and can NOT find these spiders! It's driving me nuts! I would call an exterminater BUT they done exterminate spiders here! FML! Next step, is calling the landlord and letting him know what a POS of a house he is renting. Makes me soo frustrated! Bah!

A few shots from our trip to Belgium! Beautiful city!! :) The chocolate, waffles, and restaurants were amazing! I WILL be going back again, BUT not when there are 500,000 people there again! We went to see the Floral Carpet, a large display of flowers! We also saw some pretty neat churches and government buildings. And of course the peeing boy! :) HE was everywhere! Enjoy!

I also hosted a small SPA party other day, by my new friend, Casey. She is such a sweetheart! She sells amazing products from BeautiControl. I love it, and will be making my purchase this weekend! :) I had a few ladies over, sipped on wine, and enjoyed some yummy food! It was an excellent night and it didn't end until midnight! :) Thanks ladies!

B- "I think I have a pimple!"
Me- What? Where?
B- "Look mom! Right there, I think it's just a pimple!"

I NEEEEEED visitors...

So I was doing a bit of research, and checked on flight prices from MSP to FRA. They are pretty resonable, around $530 round-trip!  So I think if anyone is interested, save a few extra bucks each month for a trip to Germany! Free place to stay and traveling to places so close, we won't need to spend a lot of money one hotels and such! Totally worth every penny for sure! :) ANYONE is welcome to come visit, esp since we probably won't be back in MN for quite some time (over a year or two for sure from now). We can also help find better air-fares if you aren't having any luck. So if anyone is interested, please let me know! :)

T and I went to Belgium yesterday, probably the most beautiful city! (We can visit there too!) It was a long, expensive day but worth it for sure! We tasted some delicious Belgium chocolates and saw some amazing structures and about 500,000 people! :p

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Trip to Edelweiss

If this doesn't make you laugh, than you're crazy! :) Hillarious hat on Tuan at the Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany.

B with the same one! She looks pretty darn cute!

Hohenschwangau Castle in Hohenschwangau, Germany.

Neuschwantstein Castle, near Hohenschwangau,Germany. There were SO many people, it probably will be the reason I will NEVER site-see on a Saturday!

View of the Bavarian Alps on our car ride back to Garmisch. We drove through Austria to get to the Neuschwanstein Castle which is still in Germany. Weird huh! Great adventure though! We saw some of the most beautiful waterfalls and gorgeous European houses and the land out side of the city. Breath-taking for sure!

Possible Christmas card! :) Our last day at Edelweiss Lodge & Resort. Great place for military families! A MUST before your tour is up!

Cute little pink truck in Munich on our walk from the Deutches Museum.

Tiny car inside the Duetches Museum! You can see how tiny it is by comparing it to Bri's size! :) And yes, they really do drive vehivles this size! They are very economical here!

Germany is truly a wonderful place full of so many things, one could never see in the USA. I have grown to enjoy the simplicity of this country and wonderful sites it has to offer!

My latest...

So if you religiously read my blog, you will know that I am completely random. I can definitely talk the talk, but when it comes to walking the walk, that is a whole different story.

So anyways, on the talking the talk subject, I am seriously considering re-enlisting into the Army again! I have done my research and am getting all of my paperwork in order to start the process. It isn't a for sure thing until I can find out what sort of job I can get and if it will be active duty or just the reserves. At the moment, I will only join if I can get in as a Dental Specialist and go in as a reservist. My ASVAB scores are high enough for almost any job I could think of. But if they can get me other options that are relatively close to that, I can probably deal with it. But I am not going back in as a truck driver or some other job I will hate. Dental has interested me a lot lately, and all know I can not really afford school right now without taking more loans. I am not in the mood or financially fit to do that at the moment. So joining the military again will help out with my education, as well as doing something I have always enjoyed! :) I definitely miss my uniform and drill weekends!

I guess I won't be able to update on that for at least a few months until I get all my waivers and previous military documents! So we shall see if it is even possible! But that's what I have been focusing on the past few days! :)

Tomorrow I'll have more time to post pictures from our trip and a few updates on some other stuff! Have a good week everyone!
