Well today was a super low key day. I woke to a blanket of fresh snow....it was beautiful....no footprints, no mud visible, it was all sparkly and pure... I wish I had thought to run out and snap a few photos but I didn't think to!!!
So, since it was cold and kinda quiet, we kinda just hung out for the first part of the morning then we packed a quick lunch and decided to head on down to Ramstein - about an hour and a half drive from here to go to the HUGE BX (Base Exchange for all my non military friends, kind a like the USAF version of Wal-Mart)..... anyway there was a small list of items that we haven't been able to get here, the top three were a vacuum, (yeah I bought an entire vacuum for just four months but let me tell you, the first use was WORTH every penny of the 44.95 I spent on it! - sweeping the apartment just wasn't cutting it for me!!!)....okay so enough about the vacuum, I also bought hair clippers so the boys will no longer look like no one loves them....first on the list tomorrow morning is a quick clip to both of their hair!!! And COFFEE MUGS! Okay I am not a "coffee addict" per se....I like tea more than I like coffee but a good cuppa joe is great when you come inside from being outside where it is BELOW FREEZING....but all we have had in the apartment were these tiny tea cups - I am talking maybe 7-8 oz. tiny white cups...not big enough to warm your hands on - that's for sure! So we have been on the prowl for a couple of MUGS, you know the kind - big, hefty, "oh yeah it feels so good to hold you when you're full of hot liquid" MUGS...well we finally were able to get some today. And of course - a CROCKPOT!!! YAY!!! I have wanted to get a crockpot since we got here because I just think that with the kitchen being so tiny, a crockpot will be a great way for me to cook home cooked meals without having to be hunched over my micro counters and stove! LOL So all in all today was a very productive day....I didn't take any pics of the stuff we bought - use your imagination I guess...but I do have three photos to share with you!
The first is of LK & Mr. D yesterday at lunch! LOL So funny!
The second is of Adam and I at the BX Food Court - the BX at Ramstein Air Base is kinda set up like a mall - it has the main store, then lots of shops and then a food court...I had to snap this shot for all my friends at Charleston....yeah our BX at Charleston has a LOOOOOOONG way to go to get up to speed with Ramsteins!
Oh and finally I do have a shot of one thing we bought - Germany prepaid cell phones...now Adam and I can be in contact with one another while we are here...I just had to laugh at how we went from Apple iPhones to this! So I snapped a shot of my new phone next to Adam's 4s...hahah ah well, it's just four months right?
Oh and if you've read this far I just remembered one more thing I bought today - a box of do it yourself creamy caramel highlights! I am thinking that I am going to lighten up just a bit.....if I get brave and do it, I will post before and after photos for sure! :D
