Where have I been??

We've been busy trying to finish up the school year prior to heading to France this coming Thursday afternoon.
Last Saturday, Madeleine had the SAT and while she was bubbling in answers, Scott and I leisurely strolled through Munich including brotzeit (Did you know it's acceptable to drink beer at 10am in Germany?). That evening we had dinner at Jonie and Eric's - they even had a day early birthday cake for me (homemade - it was scrumptious).
Sunday was my birthday and I slept in. Then Scott made egg, sausage and bagel sandwiches. I spent some time at the playground with my friend Andria. Then Scott and I went to El Greco for lunch. And that night he made tortellini for dinner. It was a beautiful and relaxing day.
This past week has included school, lunch out with Andria, my last Brownie meeting and helping out at Club Beyond on Friday. And the week ended with us becoming HOMEOWNERS - the closing on our new home was Friday 1pm CDT..... all went well and the realtor has done so much extra for us (going to closing for us, setting up lawncare for us, etc)


and here is a pic of our new home:

Kidding... that's a pic of the govt quarters we lived in the first time we lived in AL (97-99); it's undergoing renovations. Here's our house:

Happy Birthday, Renee!

You gave me a double take at that house, because I've seen the earlier pics of the new place, and I thought, WOW, it's looking rough while it's under construction, lol.

ENJOY traveling Europe, I'm guessing you won't be leaving the country much once you get to Alabama!
