It's Been Awhile

I didn't really have any intention of not blogging the latter part of last week but it just happened that way! We had a lot going on it felt like and I just didn't get around to it. So now I have lots to update y'all on. Thursday I drove over to a much larger base than where we live and met a fellow blogger, Casey, from Ever Changing Life of a Military Wife for lunch. We had never met before even though we have become friends via gchat (I know it sounds weird) and we decided it was time to meet before she moves to Turkey next week. Lunch was a lot of fun and I really enjoyed meeting her and her friend Sarah. They were neither lame nor weird! :)

Unfortunately when I got in the car to head back home I had a message letting me know that Deaner's sweet grandfather, Pa-pa, had passed away. He had been sick and we knew it was coming but it never matters once it happens because it is still sad. Pa-pa was a great man and he will be greatly missed by his wife, three daughters, six grandchildren, two great grandchilden and the two great grandchildren that are still on the way.Deaner and I were really sad that we weren't able to be home with the family this weekend for his funeral but it just wasn't feasible. Everyone say a little prayer for Deaner's family this week if you have a chance.

Friday was a pretty fun day as well. I met Deaner for lunch and picked up some packages that were delivered to me. The diaper pail that gave me so much anxiety arrived and now I don't have to think about it anymore! Deaner was at the BMW dealership later that afternoon and came home with this AWESOME toy for Evans.He said he couldn't resist and I think that it is just about as cute as it gets. Plus it is perfectly appropriate for us living here in Germany! There is no denying that our child will be stylish!

Friday night we had dinner with a friend of ours whose family is at home right now in the States without him. It was an early night because we had to get up early on Saturday morning for our wine buying trip to France! Steph and Jon came over around 9am and we ventured out for our adventure. We made it to Cora, which is basically like a Wal-Mart, right over the French border in a couple of hours. Once there we started loading up on French wines. It was a lot of fun and we all left with some great loot. Since it was our first trip we will see how we like our selections and alter it for next time we head there. We came home with 58 bottles of wine to add to our collection! I had every intention of snapping a shot of our "wine cellar" but I'm just too tired now to go back downstairs. Sorry! Sunday was relaxing and we didn't do much. It is starting to get hot in Germany which means that I am starting to move slower and slower with this belly. God help me over the next two months!

Today has been a productive Monday. I got up and went over to Steph's house and got my roots touched up. Thank goodness. Then we went and ate at our favorite place, Vapiano. YUM! Now I am home and on the couch! Of course I am doing laundry too but I am dreading have to get up to fold it when the dryer beeps! I hope that everyone had a great weekend and here's to a quick week!! I have a doctor's appointment on Thursday and then we are heading to the mountains for the long weekend!!!
