My Visit With German Students

I just returned only minutes ago from a classroom where I got to sit and hang out with a bunch of German Kids for 50 minutes. Even though I should be cleaning for my big Halloween party tonight I had to stop for a moment and write about this experience because I’m just so excited about it. These kids were fantastic!!! I think I’m finally settled on what I want to be in life..It only took me 10 years but teaching would be ideal.

So my friend here is an English teacher and she asked me to come in and talk with the kids since they are learning about NY and NYC. Perfect! I was a little worried if they would understand me or if they would think I’m strange but they were so great. They laughed at all the right things, they listened as I told them about my experience with 9/11, just an all around great atmosphere. And here’s the fun part…they were all totally into my sweet spider rings and candy corn that I made them try. (Yes, made them!) It’s America’s #1 Candy! πŸ™‚

(Great face….I know….lol)

So here are a few pics of me with the kids, I told the kids I would post them today already. I had so much fun and would love to come back around Christmas time and hang out with them again! πŸ™‚ Β They spoke EXCELLENT English, I mean, seriously. I’m still trying to learn English but they were so great and had 5 questions each ready to throw at me! They all really made my day! πŸ™‚

My new buddies!

Crazy Faces!

Pic with our sweet rings!

Special thanks to my Mom back home for sending me all the goodies I needed for this day to be a success! πŸ™‚

Until next time, Readers!!! xoxoxox

The Bathroom Of The Gods

It has arrived…it’s been installed….and it’s PERFECT!

And what is this you ask? Of course it’s obvious from the title of the post. OUR BATHROOM – cabinets and mirror!

When we were at the store picking this out it was hard to imagine this in the space we have but now that it’s here and installed…I’m super in love. I want to sit in this room every day…all day and stare at it. This isn’t so traditional and severely modern but I think it’s a good modern. It reminds me of a very expensive hotel bathroom in NYC or Miami.

Without further ado…… I present to you…..the bathroom installment of the gods. But first the Before Pictures:

ANDDDDD……. VOILA!!!!!!!

So it’s great. I don’t care what anyone says about it. I think it’s awesome….because I picked it out!!

After this was installed I then proceeded to head to a Zumba class which was crazy fun and the instructor, although it was in German, was wild and I’m excited to go back and continue doing it! Also, I was registered today as a resident of my town and will now be enrolling in a 25 hour/week German Integration Course. This includes serious language classes and culture classes. I’m very excited about this but now won’t have very much time at home to be a Hausfrau. All the better, this class is important and will ensure that I have the best quality of life here knowing the language and customs of the people.

All in all it was a great day and I’m looking forward to setting up our office now! The desk arrived as well and we now just need to put that together and decorate. Then my writing sanctuary will be complete and I can allow the creative juices to flow!! :-)))
