Another Weekend Update

Hello lovely bloggers! How was your weekend?? Mine went by in a blur as usual, but it was a pretty eventful weekend to say the least. Here's what we were up to:

Friday we had Sarah and Deaner over. They both were due for a haircut and Sarah needed highlights before she returns to the states this week. After finishing their hair we had a Mexican fiesta! I made homemade salsa, 7 layer dip, make shift Moe's burritos and a 4 layer dessert thingy, that I've mentioned before here. I LOVE Mexican food. It was definitely a treat and I ate my weight in chips and salsa/ 7 layer dip, as I always do. Also S&D brought back some awesome beer from Belgium. This stuff is SO good but toxic, being that it has over 8.0 acohol content! Always a good time with S&D!

Saturday we slept in and slowly got around after noon. We got ready and headed out for a day trip to Heidelberg. We have been wanting to visit Heidelberg for a while and finally made the trip, which was well worth it, (even though we were exhausted from Friday nights little shin dig.)
Here are some pics from our day:










After Heidelberg we drove back home and crashed for the night!

Sunday we awoke to another rainy day in Germany. Surprise! After finding the sewing machine treasure on the side of the street, I've really been wanting to get back into sewing and making fun things. There's something wrong with the machine we found, so instead of taking it somewhere and probably spending more than it's worth getting it fixed, Jon bought me a new sewing machine. Yippie! I can't wait to start playing with it.

We just took it easy Sunday afternoon. I crocheted a blanket for Sarah to take to her baby nephew, "baby Thomas." I love crocheting, especially on icky days, it keeps me busy and gives me something to do.

We also watched a couple of movies, one being Knowing.
It was actually a good movie, the ending was a little strange, but it was definitely interesting.

Today is "get my laundry done" day!

Hope you all have a great week!

I want to see that movie, it seems weird but I like watching movies about the end of the world, kinda makes me feel like I'm preparing for it ahead of time.

I LOVE mexican food. I could eat it everyday if the hubs would allow it! I can't wait to see what kind of creations you make with the new sewing machine!

You so make me want to move to Europe! So beautiful!

I heard mixed reviews on Knowing so I was afraid to watch it. I am excited to see 2012 when it comes out though! :)

Your Mexican fiesta sounded really good! It is making me crave some chips and salsa...

Glad you guys had another awesome weekend!

Love the pictures! Very fun. I've been wanting to see Knowing, but Hubs saw it with some friends and had nothing good to say about it. I need to just rent it for myself.
