Some Random Things

1. I think my husband was a hobbit, or elf, (or whatever those things are), in a past life.

He loves tiny doors....


and tiny cars.
Silly guy ;)

2. Jon and Steph are some happy campers at the moment! We got to watch the first three episodes of season 2 True Blood. Thank you technology! (We don't get HBO in Germany.)

Can I get a HOLLER! or holla..... anyway we're super stoked for this season. The first episodes were great as usual and have left us craving for more.... darn vampire shows/books.

3. The 4th of July is this weekend. Sadly, the forecast calls for rain and thunderstorms all weekend, starting tonight! Yippie for German weather. This will be the first time in 26 years that I haven't seen or done some sort of firework display. Weird! I stupidly asked a German the other day, "Will there be fireworks anywhere for the 4th of July," and she replied.... "why?"
DUH Steph, why would Germany celebrate America's Independence?
Oh well at least we got to see a little firework show at Elton John on Tuesday night.
I guess I'll just have to rock out with my matching t-shirt and short set for the 4th of July on my own.
Yup, that's my brother and me!
4. I finally hung some of our pictures from Paris. I think they bring a nice touch of added color to our dining room.

5.
I think we've finally found a buyer for our home in Norman. It's only been ONE YEAR (darn economy) since we've had it on the market. Please keep your fingers crossed for Jon and me, as it would really be a HUGE weight off our shoulders to finally sell it.

6. Jon and I are investing in some fans tonight. There are no air conditioners in homes here and to say we're VERY hot is an understatement. It is 80 degrees with 61% humidity. This morning when I woke up the humidity was 82%. Whew, are we back in Oklahoma or something? So it is definitely time to buy some fans. Our bedroom is 79 degrees right now. Needless to say we've been stripped down to our skivvies at night. Can you blame a girl?? ;)

Hope you all have a great Thursday!

I know what you mean about HOT! It really really helps with the fans though. Buy two of them. One for each side of the bed. The thrift store at Mainz Kastel is open today until 3!! You should go over there because they are always super CHEAP!

Kaci said...

Oh girl that is HOT!! YUCK! Bummer about the fireworks :(

Shannon said...

Love those pictures on the wall. It brightens the wall up!

Ew for no air.

Crazy Shenanigans said...

First of all, wow! That heat would be killing me. I don't know how you can sleep at all. Good luck on getting those fans!

Also I'm so jealous of you and true blood. I'm in the usa and don't have hbo but still haven't seen them!

Hahaha I love his obsession with doors!!! So random :)

I have my fingers crossed for you about your house in Norman!

Mrs. G.I Joe said...

Wow, I love those doors! Lol, I too have an obsession with all things tiny:p Maybe why I love babie clothes and shoes so much too! On top of just liking babies:p That's sad about no fireworks, but I would have asked that exact same question:p Hope this heat lets up for you, because dang, no air conditioning would SUUUUUUCK a big goose egg...Phew...

katie + bret said...

How are you surviving without air circulation?! Oh. my. goodness. I. Would. die. GET A FAN GIRL!

Your hubs and his small doors crack me up! What a fun guy to take such silly pictures!

Love the Paris pics :)

Maggie Whitley said...

Lindsey said...

I LOVE your pictures on the wall, so nice!!!

Casey (@ Ever-Changing Life) said...

Our base has fireworks for the 4th, maybe yours does too?

I understand about trying to sleep in the hotness with no AC. Last year we had a warm week like that so I ordered some summer PJs. By the time they came in, it was cold again. Don't worry, the warmth won't last long!

Annie said...

your hubby as a hobbit, interesting...lol!
pic of you and your bro, too cute!
ick, i'd be sleeping with no clothes on! ha!
my fingers and toes are crossed for you on getting your place sold! ;)

Kris Norman said...

Love that picture of you and your brother! So cute!

And I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you on your house :)

JG said...

HAHAHA! No, if you were back here in OK, it would be a balmy 104! :)

One time in college I asked some international students what their Thanksgiving traditions were, so don't worry, you're not alone ;)

Brittany said...

My husband too loves small doors, but then again he is a small man, maybe he is a hobbit! LOL

The pics look great and if you are anywhere near Ramstein Air Base (Kaisersautern) they have a HUGE firework display and carnival open to the public!!! I believe that that the bases everywhere do it but Ramstein was always the best!!

Megan said...

LOL! The thing about your husband cracked me up!

Lil' Woman said...

I will light a sparkler for you Steph : )

Grand Pooba said...

How you able to watch True Blood without HBO????

Spill it!

Hannah Noel said...

Are you watching your Trueblood online? haha.. that's what we're doing. Lovin' it!

valerie said...

I didn't know you didn't have air conditioning over there! I don't blame you at all for stripping down to your skivvies. :)

I hope your house sells. I'll say a little prayer.

April said...

Oh my goodness!! 79 degrees. I feel for you. I'm feeling a bit guilty with my air set on 71 degrees. Hope the fans work well for you!! Hope you have a happy 4th! What spirit you showed in that get up! haha

Ace said...

I hear ya with the house stuff. We've had 2 house payments for 15 months now.

Ace said...

"Super cute cut" means a lot considering you are a stylist! But I'm sure you probably saw tons of things I did wrong. ;)

J.J. said...

Hope the home selling goes smoothly!!!!!

Andrea said...

It is pretty sticky here, too...even with fans. Ugh. I wish teh had the rolladens-that would help!

Weisbaden doesn't have fireworks? They are having them on Kapaun-near Vogelweh here, but the massive queues and traffic jams will probably keep me away! Maybe next year. Have a safe Fourth!

Becca said...

HOWWWWW do you watch True Blood S2 over here? (Over here being Italy for me, but I'm in the same TV boat as you.) Is there a site that has it online?

I never thought about my feelings for tiny doors before, but I love those photos!
