another week that has passed far too quickly // this week we stayed busy - between an amazing 1 year old birthday bash that a friend threw, a surprise baby shower for a glowing mother to be, and a few german study sessions, i am finally catching my breath a bit. on the to do list for tonight: a nice long hot bath with a few new bath bombs from Lush. xx
my nails + my flowers = a match made in heaven » a very productive tuesday morning.
baby shower pieces for a beautiful, glowing mommy to be //// more details to come.
walking with the boys » my hubby & dog testing out the frozen lake near our place.
a batch of raspberry shortbread cookies for another roadtrip // if you happened to miss our post about the recipe, scroll down a little more or just click here.
currently in the bathroom: a rose scented bath bomb [ that i seriously can’t wait to use ] & the most beautiful english rose arrangement. looking forward to the weekend » hope you all enjoy the next few days!
sunset & vine
this morning was filled with pure goodness » a cup of piping hot coffee, snow [still] blanketed on the ground outside, & the smell of fresh cookies, baking in the oven. since valentine’s day is rounding the corner quickly, i wanted to try out a scrumptious looking recipe - courtesy of Sugar and Charm blogger, Eden. & trust me, if you have a sweet tooth, these babies do not disappoint [ warning they are r i c h ]. jump over to glitter guide’s website for all the details on these festive sandwich cookies, including the recipe & directions. happy baking ladies xx
i’m currently itching to make a few new updates to our place »
at the start of the new year, one of my resolutions was to update our home & nest a little bit more. my husband & I currently live in a temporary apartment, thanks to the hockey team here in wolfsburg. they supply almost everything you can think of » and we know we are truly blessed for this comfort. buying furniture and appliances would be a waste for us “imports,” because we only live here for 8 months of the year and we never know when our husband’s last season will be.
however, its always nice to add a few details to make it feel more like a home. as our friends walk through the doors of our place, they always laugh, saying it is completely us - fake deer heads [ because of tyler ], loads of pictures from home, and multiple candles [ because of me ]. here are a few new things on my wish list for updating things this year » clearly i’m loving different shades of gray.
