 Noooo, not German for anything (or Finnish) just my weird way to say THANKS to all those that took part in the Storytellers Blog Hop this weekend! Had quite a great showing. And hope you found some fun new reads. There sure were a lot out there :)

As ya’ll can probably tell through my slight absence in bloggyland (well, at least for a self proclaimed blog-a-holic like myself) that I have been busier than a, well, something that is really busy. 

A bee, no too blah sounding. A beaver, no, not that one either. 

Busy as a cat burying sh*t. There! That is what I was looking for. Yes, feel free to use that one, haha.

Awww, little guy looks all embarrassed! (source)
Little run down of what we have been up to the last few weeks. 

We had about 25 family members in town last weekend for Memorial Day Weekend. It was great to see them all. And since the hubs and I only get to see them about once a year, we make the time count.

Then, since we have found out where we will be next year, I jumped right on the planning for everything. What we will need, what we need to get done before then, what new winter gear I need to buy. Ohlala! 

And I have a great friend in town this weekend and we have been running around like our heads are cut off, trying to do any and everything we have missed out together this past year. Making these 48 hours she is here count.

ALSO, I am heading to Denver next weekend for a friend’s wedding and to see another great friend of mine for the weekend. Ready for a little solo adventure, if I do say so myself. 

No, the hubs isn’t coming along next weekend. He will be in Vegas for a bachelor party, partying it up with well connected high rollers and living the good life. 

Yeah, I don’t want to talk about it ;) haha, just kidding, kinda...I'm jealous! lol

Nah, he is going to have a great time! Plus, he already got married in Vegas once before, not like he can do it again, haha. 

Imagine (or, maybe you actually know what it is like) not seeing your friends and family – who live all across the country, I might add – all year, and then having less than 2 months to make it work and visit as many people as possible. Hey, it might be crazy, but it is never boring. 

So glad I have such great friends in so many places. And they are those kind of friends that it doesn’t matter how long we have gone without a chat, we pick up like nothing has ever happened. Makes me realize just how lucky I am. 

I still about 10 links below to visit and say thanks,  about a million and one emails to reply to, and just as many many great and fun blog posts to catch up on.
Wouldn't have it any other way! Have a Sunday Funday, we for sure are here.

  17. Have fun on your girl's weekend! Maybe you've written it up before but what ARE all of the things you have to have/do in order to move to a foreign country for a small amount of time. Who finds you a place to live, especially in places that don't speak English. I mean, do you use the Finnish craigslist or what?

  18. You're busy! I didn't even post today cuz I was so busy : ) My hubs just told me he wants to start watching Hockey, I told him I follow the coolest hockey wife's blog ever and tada...here I am showing you off! I'm so proud.

  19. Amazing plans you have ahead, also, careful with your hubs, I'd keep him on a short leash if I where you, lol!

  20. Enjoy all your fun stuff!

    Blogger wouldn't let me post to the STH, so I am royally pissed; will hope to hop the next time.


  21. I'm really sad I missed STH this weekend :( Next time for sure!

    I can't imagine all that goes into a big move like that--you are definitely an inspiration girl!

  22. Vegas...I'll admit I'm jealous of your hubby, too. I want to go SO bad!

    You HAVE been busy! Hope you have a great trip to Denver, and I (grudgingly) hope your hubby's trip to Vegas is good too...I guess. :)

    Seriously, thanks again for the Storytellers Hop. I haven't had a chance to visit many yet, but I'm going to come back and visit this weekend. Fun hop!

  23. Alright, totally off the subject, well sort of... But, I was thinking I wanted to get a cat. Like that beauty you've shown minding his business. But my Hubs HATES cats.

    We tried a puppy but the twins couldn't stand her and I think she was inbred cause she was slightly IQ deficient and ADD. So after 1 yr 2000 dog baths, $1000 in chewed toys, and 7 mental breakdowns for a mom who couldn't make her kids love "the damn dog"....she had to go!

    But cats are less hands on but still cuddly right? I really want my own pet to cuddle that requires less time than a toddler. I had a dog before the kids and want a pet now.

    Don't know why I'm telling you all this. Maybe because I haven't told anyone and this was safe outlet. Words of wisdom?? Dumb idea?


Whoomp, there it is!
