Spectacular Saturday

We woke up early Saturday morning on a mission, we were going to Ikea! We still have several things we need for the house and Ikea is definitely the best place in Wiesbaden to buy furniture. We started our morning coffee and I decided to make pancakes. I remember when I was a little girl my mom used to make Mickey mouse pancakes, so I thought I would give it a try!

Mixing up the AWESOME heart healthy Bisquick!
They make the best, most fluffy pancakes!

My first attempt! Not too bad

Finished product

Making Jon laugh!! Isn't his shirt funny.
We bought it during St. Patrick's Day in the kids sections at Target.

Second attempt! This one was a lot bigger!
Jon had to flip it for me.

Minnie Mouse and Mickey Mouse Pancakes!

Heading out on our crazy adventure to Ikea! Saturdays are the worst days to go, because everyone in the entire country of Germany goes to Ikea. There are so many people and it tends to get a little overwhelming but we thought we would brave it anyway!

Our car covered in fall foliage!

IKEA!!!!! This was actually our third trip here. I know it's crazy, but they have the best hotdogs here and they sell them for only 1€. We chowed down on our hotdog after shopping! I wish I would have thought to take a picture of them, they are huge!

Loading up the car.

Sunday we spent most of the day organizing and putting boxes into the cellar. We still have a lot to do but it really is coming along well. We cleared out an entire room that was loaded with boxes to the ceiling. I feel like we got a lot accomplished! Hopefully I can get pictures up soon of what we have done so far.

Happy Monday

I agree with you on the bisquick pancake recipe. They are good and they are easy! Good job!

Can you buy most of the same grocery products over there that we have here in the U.S.?

It was funny because the picture of Jon walking along on the sidewalk....I had to enlarge it because I thought he was carrying a briefcase.

I too can't wait to see pictures of your purchases.
