Little Miss and I baked some delicious chocolate caramel brownies this afternoon. I had been
daydreaming about craving them since I saw one at the Barnes & Noble Cafe two days ago. I followed a recipe I pinned from here. Trust me, they are the best brownies ever!
A month or so my little one and I bought a soft cover version of The Paper Bag Princess. It’s a story about a princess who rescues her prince. When she shows up wearing a paper bag he tells her to come back when she gets her act together. She tells him a thing or two, leaves him in the dragon’s cave, and then dances into the sunset. That’s my kind of girl!
It’s a challenge finding things to keep our kiddo occupied during the evening, but tonight we did a good job. We grabbed a paper bag cut some holes in it, decorated it with crayon, and a paper bag princess was born.
I’m still here! Thinks got way too hectic with the move and everything else going on to blog, but our things are almost unpacked and I am ready to blog again. I took over 2,700 photos from March until today and I can’t wait to share them. Well, not all of them, but the noteworthy ones at least.
My lovely sister let me dress her up, do her hair, and take her picture. This is something we might have done when we were kids, but we’re eleven years apart so I wasn’t into playing dress up by the time she was born. I imagine it was just as fun as it would’ve been if we were kids though.
I’ve been making the last decorations and attempting to make sugar cookies for my birthday girl’s party. I’ve made sugar cookies a handful of times, and they’ve only been a success once. I’ve tried to bake the cute little ice cream cone cut-outs four times so far and every cookie has ended up looking like a blob.
Rachel: I may have to give in and make them (the cookies) from scratch.
Mister: Way to give in.
I’m two weeks behind on my posts, but I haven’t given up! I’m still here, snapping away during my last weeks in Germany. I thought that it would be no problem leaving, but I am going to miss so much about living here. There’s the obvious: centuries of culture and architecture, but more than that, I’m gong to miss my neighbors and friends. This is the first time I’ve really lived within a military community, so I don’t know what it’s like when you live on-post in the States, but here, your neighbors are your friends. I think a lot of it has to do with our situations. It is so unique that only other military spouses that have lived overseas can relate. I’m guessing that’s a small part of the American population. It’s been a great adventure, but the thing about the military is that you will meet a lot of people and they will come and go, but it’s still important to be involved and continue connecting with others.
