Snaps of Happiness & Links I Loved – Week #14/2012

Some things that made me happy this week: ♥ A stay-cation. It was so nice to spend some relaxed time here with my love. ♥ New DIY materials. I bought a circle cutting tool and some really nice printed paper and I can’t wait to use them more! ♥ Cooking and baking a lot of different things. ♥ Enjoying some really late breakfasts. ♥ Easter sweets! One of my neighbours left a little suprise in front of our door and Sven got me the sweets I like the most [Lindor eggs & Milka spoon eggs!] ♥ Not actually dying from a heart attack because a friend found my blog, but instead hearing some really encouraging words. Thank you & hi, Vee! :] Instagram snaps that made me really happy Ein paar der Dinge, die mich diese Woche wirklich glücklich gemacht haben: ♥ Über die Feiertage hier zu bleiben. Es war so schön, einfach ein paar entspannte Tage mit meinem Liebsten zu verbringen. ♥ Neue Bastelsachen. Ich hab mir einen Kreisschneider und ganz viel schönes Papier gekauft [dank Glamour Shopping Week und 20% Rabatt bei idee.].. ich freu mich schon so drauf, etwas daraus zu machen! ♥ Ganz viele verschiedene Sachen zu kochen und zu backen. ♥ Ganz spätes und gemütliches Frühstücken. ♥ Ostersüßigkeiten! Ein Nachbar hat uns eine süße Überraschung vor die Tür gestellt und Sven hat mir meine allerliebsten Osterleckereien besorgt [Lindoreier und Löffeleier von Milka, mmh!] ♥ Doch keinen Herzinfarkt zu bekommen, als eine Freundin zufällig meinen Blog entdeckt. Stattdessen ganz liebe Worte hören… vielen Dank und hi, Vee! :]

Weekend Recap & Links I Loved – Week #10/2012


Even though there are no exams to be written and no lectures to be attended, life is still a bit hectic – but in a good way. We spend this weekend at Sven’s parents’, met friends every evening and celebrated Sven’s birthday for the second time. The results for the exam Sven wrote on Valentine’s Day are online – and we’re soooo happy that he passed! I’m quite happy with my grades too, so the whole week was one big “YAY”. Yesterday we finally saw “Intouchables” [It's french, the english title is "Untouchable", in Germany it's called "Ziemlich Beste Freunde"] – such a fantastic movie!

Weekend Recap & Links I Loved – Week #09/2012


Some things that made me happy this weekend:
  • I wrote my last exam of this semester on Friday
  • Which means: Two weeks off! Yay!
  • The Flatmate Situation [yes, in caps!] is resolved. One of my friends is moving in soon.
  • Sven and I surprised my parents with a visit over the weekend for my mom’s birthday.
Something isn’t working with the internet at my parents’, so we had to take a mini-break from the online world. But as you can see, I’m back!
