Yes indeed…it is in fact August 1st already! Where has the time gone? Except, I am FREAKING OUT because we are that much closer to Christmas and you all know how much I LOVVVVVEEEE Christmas!!! Every week I put on my Christmas tunes and sing along as I clean the floors. It’s my thing, don’t judge. Just hop on the happy train and do it with me!
Anyways, starting next week, Toblerone has vacation for 3 weeks. Many companies have mandatory summer vacation. Three weeks is typical, sometimes two weeks. Ridiculous right? Like who made up this rule and didn’t pass it on to the Americans?! The hubs gets the mandatory summer vacation, also two weeks for Christmas into New Years and then he has his own vacation time of two weeks which he can use when he wants. Plus we have to add in all the holidays they have here…heavy catholic region = using God as a reason to party every week and have a day or five off! Its the truth, I’m sorry! I’m just jealous…I’m jealous for all my hard working family and friends back home who struggle to make their 10 days last throughout the year. End rant.
This week’s Throwback Thursday (yes I know I missed last weeks but you aren’t that sad, right?!) I’m going back to a vacation. Toblerone and I went on our first real deal vacation in April of 2010. Real deal as in flying together for the first time! We went to St. Pete’s beach in Florida, met some awesome people, and got rip roaring drunk most days! OH! and he dragged me to a Bon Jovi concert! Ha! But it was fun, I swear!
Until next time, Readers!!! xoxoxoxoxo

I’m counting down until Christmas too! I so missed Germany at Christmas time and so excited to be back! Hope you guys do something fun and enjoy the next 3 weeks!
Germany is so magical at Christmas time! I can’t explain it but it is to me the true meaning of the Christmas spirit! 🙂
We’re doing mini day trips around Germany but happy to sight-see a bit! What are you guys doing?
It is so magical and I know what you mean. I think it’s because it’s so traditional and a little less commercial.
No vacation for us yet! 😦
Ha ha! It’s true. We were going to send in some shoes to Josef Seibel, but the store told us the factory was closed for 3 weeks for the summer vacation. Sign me for working in Germany!
I know right?!!? That is a special kind of crazy!
I wish American companies thought like German ones. Some places don’t even give 10 days.
It’s awful! People really need some more time off. They need to recharge the batteries!
