I tried my hand at decorating some cupcakes. LOL. I get bored. Sue me. Instead of unpacking the last few boxes, I felt like baking. The cake part was devil's food cake. mmmmmm.
Friday we went to one of the neighboring bases for a Bazaar. There were vendors from lots of different countries. I saw these and couldn't resist. I also bought a magnet doll. Josh bought some wine (which we drank last night and it was yummy). There was this cute old german lady selling antique metal toys and there was a robot I wanted to buy. I forgot to stop back at her booth to get it. :( It was so cute. It was the kind that came with a separate wind up key.
Brrrrrrrrrrrr. It's cold here! It's been kinda wet and really cold for the past few days...like in the 30's cold! I suppose one good thing about the cold here so far is that it isn't too windy. I'm from Corpus you know, so it's ALWAYS really windy. Pair that up with cold, and it makes it worse.
This is in my dining room/scrap room now! :) I have it just about full. My papers don't fit in it, but that's fine b/c I already have them in their own organizers. Ikea had plastic drawer bins to go inside, but they were 10 euro each. I didn't want to spring that for plastic. One of the benefits of being military here is they have a program with the german government. All german goods have a 19% sales tax automatically tacked onto the price. Well we have at our disposal these forms that give us back the sales tax, so we're basically getting things tax free. It's only worth it when you are spending a good amount of money b/c the forms are $4 each. So...it's like have a 20% off saleI also bought this rug, but I don't know what I was thinking! HELLO!??! I have 2 toddlers. This sucker isn't going to stay white for much longer. Ha! Ah well. It's really cute though. We also got a new computer desk, chair, and TV stand for our room. I can't wait to go back. I want to get some spice jars for all my brads, eyelets, buttons, etc so it's all uniform looking.
Tomorrow some company is coming to get the temporary furniture we have in here. Ugh. Thank god! It's so hideous and old looking. Well, once I get all my scrap stuff situated, I should be back in the swing of things. New things for my etsy shop are being planned too! Keep an eye out for that. Cheers!
