I survived the weekend! Friday night didn't work out quite as we had planned but it was nice nonetheless. Kimberly, Magi, and I went to have chinese but we got there and the restaurant is closed for 2 weeks! We came back to Baumholder and ended up going to Hotel Westrich which is mine and Bryan's favorite restaurant. We had dinner and ended up missing the movie. HOWEVER, that gave us the perfect excuse to go down to the eis cafe! Both dinner and dessert were wonderful as always! The company wasn't too bad either!!
Saturday I drove over to the Kaiserslautern area to pick up a few things. I went to the Ramstein BX and the Vogelweh BX. I was most excited about getting a new pair of running shorts, a new workout top, and a long sleeve/ spandex style/ moisture wicking shirt for running. On Sunday, I did some cleaning and a lot of cooking! I made some Carolina Macaroni Salad for myself, some Sausage Cheese Balls to send to Bryan, and some White Chip Chocolate Cookies for my upcoming FRG meeting. Now it's back to the work week!
The picture above is from a few weeks ago. Our friend Kelly went back to the states while our husbands deploy. We all went out to a goodbye dinner at the Cantina Mexicana. Girls nights are few and far between while our husbands are here, but I expect that they happen a lot more frequently when a bunch of ladies spend a year living by themselves!
This "application" was sent to me by a friend!
