6 Month Anniversary Photography

Ever since Christmas I've been wanting to take some "professional" pictures but just didn't have time and it just was to cold. But in time for our 6 month anniversary it worked out....and the sun came out!! The sun inspires me to take pictures. And Pinterest gave me many ideas on poses.
Which is your favorite?

Love how this turned out!



Pinterest inspired...

Also Pinterest inspired



"Stole" this banner from my Valentine's mantle....lol

Right before the kiss photo...so....passionate looking lol

Having way to much fun!

Pssssst....don't look. Private moment.



Love how my camera stand I got for Christmas made this so much easier and opened so many more possibilities.  And I am telling you Pinterest is my biggest place for inspiration..... I just looked for couple photography ideas and saved my favorites on my phone so I could look them up during our photo shoot.

So which one do you like?

Technic Museum


Patrick and I on the following Thursday (after the Titanic Museum) went to the Technik Museum in Speyer. Follow the link to see their little video and see how cool it is....

Saw it? Cool, isn't it?

Anyway, Patrick and I had an awesome day. Since I was super hot in the last Museum I dressed cooler....bad idea. Most of the cool stuff was outside and it was freezing and windy. On top of that I forgot my camera at home and had to take as many pictures as I could before my phone died. Other than that I had a great time. Most fun thing for me was hanging out with my best friend but I must say that the submarine was very interesting. It was not fun climbing into....and the ladder was SOOO cold. Seeing and experiencing the tight quarters was an special!

We also enjoyed there Dom IMAX cinema. There  we watched a documentary on dolphines. Very interesting!

I like going to just about any Museum. How about you?

Titanic Museum


Last week we had our winter break. I was still getting over the flu and Patrick pulled a muscle but one thing we definitely wanted to do.... go to the Titanic Museum. As a teenager Patrick was crazy about the Titanic so when my mom saw that a museum had a special exhibition of the Titanic she told us about it.

So off we went on an amazing journey learning the history of the biggest ship of it's time. We had headphones we could listen too, we saw many artifacts brought back from the Titanic and they built a few things to look like on the Titanic. What made it even more interesting was that we got a Ticket with a name of someone that boarded the Titanic. Once we reached the end we were able to see if we survived or not.....really informative and fun day.


Does this sound like fun to you too?

Breakfast Muffins



I did these breakfast muffins this week and they were great! I've been wanting to try make these muffins for awhile now and finally had everything (the muffin pan) I needed together.

As always I did not follow the recipe exactly but use her amounts and ideas to make mine. They were very simple and quick to make and eating a hot egg-muffin is super delicious in the morning. 

You need to try this sometime....head here to get the recipe.

What do you think?

Valentines Mantle



So I got my Valentines mantle done this weekend and I quite love it! ☺ The roses were actually a surprise gift from Patrick last Monday...and I decided to use them for my decorations. Sadly the entire shelf fell down once....breaking some of the stems and smooshing my beautiful roses.

I love the different reds that are visible here....but they go well together. Do you agree?

This will be Patrick and my first Valentines day as a married couple....special.☺

My February Wreath



This wreath was a quick project made with things I had at home. My wreath is the same like I had for Christmas. I added the heart with L O V E which I got for a wedding gift from my pen-pal and tied some red and white polka-dot ribbons to it and VIOLA! ☺

Quick and simple....but cute. How do you like it?

My Crazy Week



This past week had a lot of highlights in it.....not your typical week of same ol' business.

Well first thing was going back to work. After having 3 weeks off for Christmas and enjoying the "stay-at-home-wife" time it was a hard adjustment again. But I enjoy my work and totally love my kids... so it's fun. Now I am back to planning everything for the next day,  keeping house  & cooking between work and other activities.

The second thing this week is the biggest and best. Many of you have been following for quite some time and may remember {this} post from last January of when Patrick did NOT get his work permit. We had plans, we had dreams and I definitely thought he would be getting his work permit and when he didn't everything seemed to crumble around me. But God had different plans. We ARE married now....and HE GOT HIS VISA AND WORK PERMIT...wait for it....for 3 years!! Aaaahh!!! We are so thrilled. After that he should the "forever one".

The next special event of this week was my grandma's birthday. It was fun to celebrate it at our house.....to actually be the one doing the cooking. ☺ It's nice to have my own home.

The last exciting thing of the week was the fire safety course we participated in. On Saturday we had a fire safety meeting at church.  It is a requirement in Germany for the "workers" at a building to participate in such a meeting to be able to know what to do in case of a fire emergency....especially if there are a lot of people involved such as a church. Surprisingly the meeting was very interesting and educational. Afterwards we were able to use various fire extinguishers to put out a "fire" so we are more familiar on how to use them when there is a real fire. Patrick got an almost empty one....again...and he likes making silly faces. I just love this picture.....like he's bored putting out fires.

So that was my crazy....my crazy GOOD week. How was yours?
