New Car and Guest Bedroom

So I really really really want to show y'all the pictures of the guest bathroom that I finished yesterday but as it turns out, I bought the wrong size curtain at Ikea. I am getting ready to head back there and exchange it now but I don't want to post pictures of the bathroom until it is COMPLETELY finished. I know, I'm a freak. I just have to wait for the laundry to finish up so I can start another load before I leave. When it takes 2 hours and 20 minutes to do a load of whites it can severely set your day back!! Especially when you MUST do it because you are leaving to go out of town for 9 days!

Did anyone notice that it is only Tuesday and that I am actually online and typing on my blog?!?! George gave us the password to his wireless internet so that we could "borrow" his until ours is fixed!! Isn't that nice? I think that it would have been much nicer had he done this on Sunday evening so I could have participated in my fantasy football draft BUT I swear I'm not holding a grudge!! :)

Anyways, did I ever mention that my wonderful husband bought me a "new to me" car?? I'm LOVING being mobile again! It is a 2002 Jeep Liberty Limited Edition and the previous owners really took care of it. It looks brand new! It is the perfect size car for us to have here so that we can comfortably travel with guests when we have visitors. Otherwise we will probably stick to the Crossfire since the gas mileage is MUCH better. Here are a few pictures of the car!
I love it!! And who cares if the inner console lights sometimes flick on while I am driving, like the car is haunted?? Not me!! It's going to be perfect for the next few years!

Moving onto the guest room. We didn't do anything with this room besides put our old bedroom furniture in it. Nice that our guests can sleep in a bed while we are still sleeping on the box spring on the floor! :) There isn't much to this room yet and it's "makeover" is going to be a much bigger one that I need to save up my energy for. SO, here is what it looks like for now!It was a sin to paint those exposed beams BLUE and put in that hideous blue carpet but I'll have to deal with that issue at a later date! The best part about this room is that here is the view you can see while lying in the bed!I just hung up the new curtain in the half bathroom (yes, I have been to Ikea since starting this post this morning!) and tomorrow will be pictures of the new bathroom and the dining room. Also, I took a picture of the outside of the house for everyone but some employee was standing outside smoking and that just looks tacky!! I'll have to venture out and take a new one in a minute. I'll leave y'all with some details from my birthday! We ended up only having to go to Brussels for one night so we were here in Wiesbaden on the 26th, which was my 29th birthday. One more year in my 20's! Yikes! It better be a good one! Deaner bought me a docking station for my ipod for the kitchen since I have been wanting one for a long time now. Since we are planning on eating at home A LOT from here on out, what better place to have my ipod. I love it. My big surprise birthday present that I didn't see coming at all was this Lacoste barrel bag.Excuse Deaner's hand in the picture and I know it is a bit dark but the purse is a khaki color. I had mentioned (several times) that I liked the purse a lot when we saw it in the window at the Lacoste store in Wiesbaden. Since the store was out by the time Deaner got around to buying it he had to order it from Italy. Needless to say that I LOVE it! We planned on eating at this steak restaurant in town for my birthday dinner and when we got there it was CLOSED. So we ate at one of our other faves and our meal was great. All in all it was a pretty good birthday!

Time to go clean up some of the mess around here so I can chill out on the couch and read! Deaner has German class on Tuesdays so he won't be home until almost 9pm tonight. All afternoon to myself..........I am going to get SO bored!

Sounds like a GREAT birthday and I love your "new-to-me" car :-) Oh, and I cannot believe that it takes that long to do a load of whites - sheesh! I thought that our laundry was bad!
