Under Sink Organization


So my #1 goal for during my break is ORGANIZING! And here is the first project I accomplished. Under the sink was a crazy mess. I didn't know I had extra gloves and thought I was out of big trash bags.....cleaning up saves money. ☺

All I used was old boxes and polka dot adhesive film. ☺

And how do you like it?

Currently


Decorating:
To be honest....after my Valentine decorating I haven't been working on any projects but I have many planned. In the above picture, the left bottom corner  you see a snapshot into my bedroom. I love the rustic country look. ☺

Cooking:
Tried 2 new recipes this past week and redid another 2 I already tried. I am not a big cook. Most everything I make taste good but I like to stick to the quick through together meals (all from scratch of course). But I do enjoy trying to make that meal I pinned on pinterest. Planning on sharing those 2 recipes on here soon.

Photographing:
My photography hobby is now limited to taking quick pictures on my phone....but I love keeping my life documented with pictures. See the rainbow picture above? Just yesterday on a sunny winter day it suddenly rained. Shortly afterwards I saw a WHOLE RAINBOW. I squealed and scared poor Patrick but he then pulled over to let me take a picture. And then I noticed....it was a double rainbow.

Exciting:
Patrick picked up his visa card!!!! YAY! And I  finally have my husbands last name. It's kinda a long story but Germans have their own little rules...and finally we got all the paperwork done. ☺

Teaching:
In math we are learning to use money and we needed a "clerk" to buy our imaginary things from with our paper money.This is wear Mr Scheinebild and his daughter Liselotte came to life. lol They love my people I draw and the stories behind them.....problem is I have to redraw them every time we "buy" things.



So what are some things you have been doing the past few days?

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.☺
