Looking for you, you were looking for me.

Good morning! Has everyone recuperated from the holidays? I have and I'm slowly adjusting to the normal routine.

Christmas was wonderful! Josh absolutely surprised me with tickets to see my favorite band, Fall Out Boy.

If you can believe it, I teared up when I opened the gift. I'm usually pretty sneaky and can find out what he buys me, but this came as a huge surprise. Afterall, I didn't realize the tickets had even gone on sale yet since the show isn't until March.

And how perfect is that? It falls close to our 5 year anniversary. And the show will be held in Cologne, Germany. I have yet to go there, but it's high on my list of places to see. Our friends are going to watch the kids so we can have a nice, romantic getaway. The celebration of this anniversary will be a huge contrast from the past. I have lots of planning. :)

Josh bought me a new point and shoot, which I love. It's a Canon Elph 890 I believe. I still love the Sony Alpha, but sometimes I just need something a little smaller and more convinient to carry.

Life around here has been picking up. I was made our FRG Leader a couple of months ago, so I have a little more on my plate. I have workshops planned once a month for the next 3 months, a trip to Amsterdam and Garmisch next month, and a trip to Denmark in either Febuary or March. Our social life has perked up a bit too. We're finally making friends which helps the weekends. lol.

I'm super late in the game, but I've finally finished the Twilight Saga. But I cheated and listend to the books on audio. Don't get me wrong, I love to read. So much so it's a downfall on my character because once I start a book, I absolutely cannot put it down until I've finished it. I opted for the book on audio simply because it allows me the freedom to continue on with my daily life. And I find it makes life a little more "interesting." All I can say is download Twilight on audio and you'll see what I mean. TRUST ME. The actress who reads the books is excellent. Josh says he is going to fuse the headphones to my head (I prefer using the big, over your ear stereo headphones...they're more comfy) since I pretty much listen to the books over and over.

There's something else regarding Josh and his music that has kinda lit a fire under us in a good way. It was a passing thought I had the other day while listening to "New Moon" and it regards one of "Hits&Mrs" songs they are currently working on. If we can get it to work out, holy cow is all I can really say. I'm excited. On a related note, the guys should be putting some new stuff out in the near future.

That's all for now I suppose. MY computer crashed last week and I still feel lost without it. Josh ordered me a new hard drive, so I'm forced to use his comp in the mean time. I didn't lost much, since I save most things on my external. However I have been working on a coffee table book for the past couple of months, showcasing a month to month account of our life in Germany. It was pretty awesome. I chose amazing photographs, filled it up with facts from the cities we've been too, milestones of the kids, etc. 2 months of work, down the drain. :( I'm gutted.

Anyhoo. I'm out.


PS- Who's going to CHA? Have a good time!!!!

WOW WOW WOW! Sounds like everything is wonderful. You are going to adore Cologne! There's a ton to see. IF you go to the Cathedral, I have to warn you, its like 510 steps to the top of the South Tower and its scary if you are afraid of heights like I am. The view is totally worth it.

Yay for the the FOB tickets and the new camera. Josh is so amazing! I totally love that guy. You've got me wanting to read twilight now. My mom's got the book and I'm waiting on her to finish it. Not going to CHA this year due to the economy. Oh well, maybe next year...
