I heart my daddy...

December 3rd can not come fast enough! Just booked my daddy's tickets! He's coming to visit us for 10 days!!!! AH can't freaking wait! I am so excited to plan an amazing trip for him! It will be cold as can be, but we're hopefully going to go to Berlin, Munich, Normandy, and Amsterdam! And yes, totally possible! Everything is within close distance which is perfect! :) AH yayayaya! That is all! :)

My toes are cold...

It's that time of year again! Fall made it's appearance early September with the changing of the leaves and piles on the ground! And of course we can't forget the bitter chill in the air! It is quite cold out as of late, we had our first frost a few weeks ago! I'm NOT ready for winter to begin what-so-ever! But fall in Germany is absolutely beautiful! It's like what you would see in a movie and it's so peaceful! I can deal with fall for while before the winter comes! I am anticipating winter this year though, for good reason! I will finally have some visitors! My daddy is coming in the beginning of December and my sister in January! :) I couldn't be more excited! I can't wait to plan some fun trips and travel a bit before we make our departure from Germany!

We recently recieved a phone call. It's one of those calls that will completely change everything! T was brough up on orders to leave Germany much sooner than we had expected! We planned to be here until July 2011, but the Army has other plans for us! So what does this mean? We will be leaving Europe in March 2011! Seems far away, but that's only 4+ months away! NOT LONG AT ALL! We have lots of traveling, planning, and packing to do! As far as my plans for the military and school, getting put on the back burner yet again! Hoping something works out sooon!

What does this mean for everyone else? YOU NEED TO COME VISIT BEFORE WE LEAVE! Tickets are still very reasonable! And I promise it will be worth EVERY penny! :)

Here is a photo if T and I finished our first 5k together! It was the Breast Cancer awareness run! Over 600 people showed up to run! T and I finished in about 33 minutes! not bad for our first race! Can't wait to run another! :)

Hope everyone is enjoying October! Be back later for another update!

I heart Germany!

I am back, and it's time for an update! :) As I was doing a bit of soul searching, I realized how dang hard it is to be an "alledged" adult. Life as a child or even a teenager were so easy! This whole being an "alledged" adult is killing me. All these things that need taking care of, all these people who depend on me, the need to make money, and many other things are sitting, or shall I say, stacked on my plate these days. So aside from that moment of complaining, there isn't one single thing I would change! Staying busy with things needing to get done keeps me in check. Of course I need to write EVERY thing down so I don't forget! And having people depend on me is most definitely difficult, but it's a lovely feeling knowing you helped someone out or did your best to fulfill their needs. Oh and making money, luckily, I love to work. I got myself back on 5 days at the restaurant, start working at B's school tomorrow, AND started part-time baysitting some kiddos! It all helps our family in the end! :)

So here I am, busy as can possibly be! It's an amazing feeling! Of course I enjoy being lazy once in a while, but would rather have 6 busy days and 1 lazy day!

Couple other updates:
-B is recovering from a pretty nasty cold. I've never wiped her poor nose so much! :( Because of the recal, I can't even give her tylenol!
-I registered for my first 5k on Friday! I can NOT wait to run it! I am so excited to get out there and run! My goal isto run it in less than 40 minutes, secretly hoping for 35! I have been practicing, and with my adrenaline on high speed, it should happen! Wish me luck!
-T has been busy working! We spent the weekend hang out as a family! We went to the Stuttgart Beer Fest on Sunday, such an awesome day!
-Our friends from the states who are stationed here in Bamburg are hopefully coming to visit! It will be soo nice to see familiar faces!
 Above: Bri's first day of soccer!
 Me chowing down on a Doner Kebab. Europe's version of Chipotle I suppose! :) AMAZING!
 One of the beer tents (more like a shed) at the Stuttgart Volksfest.
 Corn on the Cob stand :)
 Bri clapping to the German band that was playing! The German's get wild! :) I'm not sure what to compare it to, possibly a big county fair, but ten times BETTER! :) The beer fests are beyond fun, and the food and beer are amazing!
 Our little family! We found a nice table and enjoyed our beer, sausages, pretzels, and pommes (fries). Quite tastey!
 B on one of the kiddo rides. Most of them for her size are typically the same! It cost about 2 Euro to ride, which is about $2.30. Expensive, yes!
 Some Germans we met in the beer line! They were friendly and drunk!
View of the Volksfest from the HUGE Ferris Wheel! It was so pretty looking over the city! :)
-That's it for body is tired and needs some rest! Enjoy the photos! :)
Oh and please come visit!
