Friday Randoms....

1. Jordan is finally back from Switzerland...
Someone asked what J does, and he is in sales.
I would tell you what he sells but I honestly cannot explain.
It is chemistry related...
Which equals Allie having zero knowledge haha!
Jordan is one smart cookie though :) Hopefully the boys get his smarts!:)
View from the plane...How cute is this village!?
The country side is SO GREEN....this was day one...it changed drastically! 
Yes, please let's move!
This was the country side a few days later! Isn't that nuts!?
Zurich....
A very tired Jordan, he ran all over Zurich soaking it all in his last day...
He took like 300 pics in one day...must run in the family :)
I have told Jordan time and time again if any jobs in another country pop up...
I AM IN...
I would LOVE to live abroad! 
Germany would be my number 1 pick because Jordan and I have a lot of German in us!:)

2. CHOCOLATE.....
He came with no joke probably 5 lbs of Swiss Chocolate...
Can you guess how much is left? 
ZERO!:)
The best chocolate hands down was the Minor Bars from Maestrani....
They did a tour there...
Its a chocolate hazelnut bar...
Its so soft and has the BEST flavor ever...
I am no joke contemplating ordering a huge box and having it shipped here...
It was THAT good people!
He also brought home raspberry and strawberry chocolate which is usually brown in the US...
It was PINK and was INSANE...
All that chocolate made any that we have had here seem not so great!
Ugh typing this makes me want more chocolate...

3. Ice Cream monsters....
I found a great organic brand of ice cream called Alden's!
It has a great taste, the Cookies & Cream is my fave!
The boys approved {of course} 

4. Happy Birthday to me!:) {not til next week you still have time! haha}
My old watch broke so I got a MK watch and I LOVE IT....Thanks Jordan!:)
PS I am VERY glad we ordered it early for this next reason....

5. Who knew that when a car says Premium Gas on the gas cap 
that it MEANS ONLY PUT FREAKING PREMIUM GAS INSIDE IT!??!?!?!
Sylvie's check engine light came on YET AGAIN....
Jordan was in Switzerland so I had to take care of this one...
They came and picked her up again...
Well this time it was MY FAULT because I put regular gas in her !:(
Needless to say it was not a cheap fix! 
I learned my lesson!

6. I made the boys Quesadilla's for lunch the other day...
and after Jordan read all this WONDERFUL stuff about gluten it may be the last time they eat them...
 Luke is back to making his CRAZY faces....
This kid is NUTS!
7. Luke LOVES Fish Oil pills...lol
It is so random but when I get mine out he freaks out...
So he pops one in and sucks the oil out...
He doesn't even flinch over the taste...
Crazy nut!

8. Vincent and I had a mommy/son date :)
 Sometimes I love to just have some 1 on 1 time with each of them...
We went to pick up a down vest for Jordan from this hunting store...
I have never seen so many men in Carhartt's and Hunting coats in my life....
Vincent enjoyed the fish tanks they had!:)
 We jammed out to Jack Johnson the entire way there and back...
An oldie but goodie!:)

Now I am thinking me and Luke will have a little date this weekend...
Gotta keep it fair!:)

9. New Obsession
I usually do not like "cooking" shows but OMG I LOVE IT!!!

10. Last but not least...Canvas People is offering my followers a FREE 8X10 Canvas Portrait!
{$50 value....just pay shipping}
They turn out AMAZING & Arrive QUICK!!

I think that is all for this week....
xoxo

  1. Chopped is one of my favorite shows! Sometimes if you're lucky they'll have a mini marathon on during the day on Saturdays or Sundays - careful it gets addicting! Tuesday nights they play a few on repeat since that's when the new episodes air. I love when I find people that share in my obsessions. PS your boys are the two (almost three) cutest boys I have ever seen! Good luck with number 3!

  2. Hadley does the same thing with he fish oil pills, she loves those things. She hears me from a room away getting mine and she comes running to get hers. Her's are strawberry flavored but they really aren't that good.

    I went to Germany in high school and the chocolate is sooooo much better there. I know you can buy German and Swiss chocolate here but it still doesn't taste the same. Someone once told me they have to put preservatives in it here but they don't over there.

  10. What a week! Definitely jealous of Jordan's trip, HAZELNUT CHOCOLATE!, and your watch! Not so jealous of the car-gas issue! I love Chopped too! The only cooking shows I like are the ones that are competition style haha.
