Awkward and Awesome



  • This one realtor walking through our house with her client while Leonie was having lunch in the kitchen (she had french bread with laughing cow cheese and a sliced tomato)...she saw Leonie and asked her "what's for lunch?" while staring at her plate, and she goes "ah, what a good girl, she's having a tomato and is actually eating it...she's eating her fruit...but, does she even know it's a fruit?" - now, I know that botanically a tomato is a fruit, but it is considered a vegetable!
  • One of the girls from our neighborhood, who was never really interested in being friends with Leonie (which is absolutely fine, you can't be friends with everyone), keeps asking her for play dates since she heard we were moving, telling her how much she will miss her...Girl, why didn't you come over once on the past 3 years?
  • Do you know that feeling when your fingernails get too long and you can hardly type on the computer? I really need a manicure or a nail clipper, I am just so lazy...I hate the feeling of too long nails...even after washing my hands or cleaning the's just an awkward feeling to me! I don't know how women with really long nails do it?
  • People that are walking through our house all the time keep telling me how clean and neat everything is! Asking me how in the world I kept the carpets so "white" (they are actually cream colored) and that they love our European style furniture! Love hearing those compliments, keep 'em coming! ha ha


  • Pinterest. I just love it! It is so inspiring browsing through all those pins and getting inspired to create something new! Remember, if you need an invite, let me know and I'll shoot you one!
  • Online furniture shopping for our home in Germany! We need new beds, so I have been browsing all kinds of sites to find the perfect fit for our home! I think I found them and will order them soon, so that they will be delivered before we arrive! We will also need new TVs, washer and dryer, vacuum, coffee maker and all those electrical appliances that we can't take with us, because they wouldn't work in Germany! In other words, all those things we have here now will all be part of a big "Moving Garage Sale" in July after our moving container is gone!
  • Decided to go to the library at 7:30 pm yesterday, so we all hopped in the car and drove there (it's about 3 min away), found some great crochet books and music Cd's! And Leonie signed up for a Summer reading club - she can win prizes if she reads a certain amount of time per week (a great way to keep them motivated to read - over 1200 kids have signed up for it so far)!
  • It looks like we already found a buyer for my car! His son will be going to college and needs a bigger car (for his football gear and all) and I have a Chevi Equinox, exactly what he is looking for! Yay - looks like he likes it!
Wishing you all a fantabulous day! Don't forget to enter the 2 giveaways here and here!



  1. you need an invite for pinterest? wierd! i've been thinking about joining... wanna shoot me that invite, chrissy?


  2. Yay for finding a buyer. Hope you're having a great week Chrissy :)

  3. I love Pinterest also!! Its such a great place for inspiration! I only wish I could get it on my phone so that I could keep entertained with it while at work. haha.

    Yay for finding a buyer for your car! Its so exciting! I am so excited for you, pretty!

  4. I can't get over how weird people can be!

    Yay for buying new furniture and appliances! :D And for Leonie joining the reading club! We're having one in Ontario's library, too + a carnival at the end of July.

    Have a great day! :D

  5. Reading that Leonie joined a reading club made me smile. In high school I used to volunteer at the library in town and sign kids up for our summer reading program. Giving out awards was the best part :)

    Congrats on finding a buyer for the car! Here's hoping a renter for the house isn't far behind!

  6. i'm afraid to get pinterest...i don't think i'd eat or sleep ever again, i'd be way to addicted.

  7. The neighbor girl wants to be friends now so she can get a free vacation in Germany out of it *muaaahahaha*

  8. That is awesome that you may have a buyer for the car so soon. Man oh man would I get dangerous furniture shopping online. I am so excited for the big changes coming :) And I totally hear you about those nails. I will grow them out, get them about a quarter of an inch over my actual finds and then my fingers are in PAIN! I must cut them asap. Whats up with that lol.

  9. I would love to be online searching for new furniture, fun fun! I signed up C for a summer reading program too (open to all ages) he LOVES his books so it'll be fun to keep track of how much we really do read here.


  10. I don't think the last one the in awkward is actually awkward, is it?

    i can't stand long nails either, not at all. they need cut right now, in fact!!
