And, I thought to myself...obviously there is an easy way to do this that does not involve cutting too much, which led me to the infamous cricut. Now I want one. I don't scrapbook (nor do I have any desire). But how cute would my future parties be??? Does anyone have one? I must know more.

I so wish I was funny. My delivery is horrible. But, I have accepted the fact that this is something I am not good at. I can move on. At least I don't try. Nothing's worse than someone unfunny that thinks they are funny.
Also, I don't get out much. I am always amazed that I actually know people when I go out in public. And, I am so not used to crowds. What do I live in? A bubble?
The opening act was Tom Papa. He was actually really good! Being a comedian would be terribly hard.
And, for those of you Seinfeld fan's here is a little YouTube video for you:
I would put something funny here but as previously mentioned, I got nothing.

A little narrow.
From the front:
From the side:
This post is not for the claustrophobic.
He had a good laugh. Tommy did too.
Guess who now has a little motivation to change the tag?
And, on a completely seperate note...I am also very motivated to get this new housekeeper. But, really have no idea where to begin (yes, I can Google ; ) but would like like to get a recommendation. So far I have looked up Clean Freaks...anyone used them? Anyone else? Hmm...this might be a potential business venture for someone -- an online housekeeper referral service.

So, now for the real "meat" (stupid pun intended) of my post. (And, luckily for you guys I am running out of theme posts of my trip.) But, one my favorite things about being in Europe was that looking down each street was an architectural surpise. And, you know I love surprises.
These are from the streets of Munich, Salzburg (my FAVORITE), Innsbruck and some other little cities. Aren't they all just amazing???

The confections were always so artistic. Two of my favorite things put together candy + flowers. Adorable!
How beautiful are these petit fours?
Swarovski. I went to the factory in Austria. I do have to say...there was not that much more than what you can find here. But, it was fun to be where my little collectibles are made!

Here are some really cute ideas from Real Simple:
I have a special affinity for beach related things since that is where Tommy and I got married. I think I could pull this off, though. Looks easy enough. I am a TERRIBLE gift wrapper, though. I think that is probably why I stick to bags...
This idea is to take an old calendar and use it as gift wrap. I will give it an "A" for creativity and eco-consciousness for the recycling aspect...however, I must admit I don't think I have ever seen a calendar quite like this. Even those huge desk calendars have lines.

One of my favorite things about my trip was the marketplatz (one of only about 15 German words I know) in each town. I love to see the fresh flowers. And the bread. And the cheese. And, really anything that you can eat.
We picked up some fresh flowers on our last day for our lovely hosts. My mother-in-law's cousin's graciously fed us (fabulous food, at that) and let us stay for 3 nights.
