Lots of fun stuff this weekend!! We went on a day trip on Saturday and today we are cleaning and cooking and getting ready for our friends Mandy and Greg to come over. She's due in about a week so I'm getting really excited about seeing her baby boy!
Let's see....yesterday we decided to go to the Black Forest. We've never been there and were wondering what all the fuss is about. Apparently LOTS of tourists come here to see the Black Forest and buy cuckoo clocks and what not. Well, we're not clock people and we are a bit jaded I guess because we have seen SO MANY beautiful places in the world. That aside, it really is lovely there. The forest is amazing and the towns are extremely quaint..very 'bavaria'esque. :) Here are some fun photos we took:
After visiting Gengenbach, we decided to take a scenic highway home instead of the autobahn and we were so glad we did. We were literally driving on top of the world and the girls loved being 'so high up the mountains' :) Were were getting hungry around dinnertime so we stopped at a fairly large roadside hotel to grab a bite to eat. We were totally surprised to realize it was right on a lake! With paddle boats! We couldn't pass that up and got out there on the Mummelsee (the name) and had a blast. Then we took a walk around the lake and the girls dipped their toes in and saw tadpoles for the first time. They actually touched them and commented on how 'cute' they were. I thought that was sweet since they NEVER wanna touch anything slimy, gooey, or any other perceived 'gross' thing! So much fun!
So, we got home kinda late, but it was no big deal. Slept ina bit htis morning and cleaned the house. Colin opened the fridge this morning and decided to have a whipped cream snack and squirted some in his mouth. I jokingly patted his tummy to tease him a bit for having such an unhealthy snack so what does he do? He decides it'd be REALLY funny to kiss me with a mouth full of whipped cream! ICK!! Anyone who knows me knows I am NOT a good sport when it comes to this stuff. But there I was standing in the kitchen with whipped cream dripping off my cheek and up my nose. So, I took the full watering can and dumped some on him! And Colin being the total GUY that he is was a bit shocked that I did that to him so he smeared and I mean SMEARED whipped cream on me..my back...my hair...GROSS!! So I ended up dumping the remainder of water out on his head! Little stinker!! That'll teach him to mess with me!! :D
So, yeah...that was our weekend in a nutshell....lots of fun and good memories. :)
I also made some pretty big decisions this weekend...nothing that can be talked about yet. Still lots of work to do, but I know everyone will be pleased. But I am really excited about some things coming up! One is no secret..I willbe the featured CHick Designer in our monthly De-Zine at thedigichick. Really excited about that! And another bit of news is that I will be featured in Scrapforums.com's newletter in September! I am making a new kit that will be released with the newsletter and have already finished the freebie that subscribers will get! Cool stuff!!
Ok, now I reallyhave to get off the puter...way too much stuff to do and cook! Ciao, all! :)
