On a walk near Schloss Solitude
Happiest of Mondays and a big thank you to all who commented on my last post about jeans!! Over the weekend, I went shopping and found two pair that worked for me (for now), and feel better knowing I have jeans again. One from Levi’s and the other from ESPRIT.
ESPRIT was big in the 90s in the states, and died off, but here in Germany, they’re a major major store with – actually – a lot of cute clothes! I’d put them on par with Express quality, but more mature, aka not geared toward the young teeny-bobber crowd.
So, it’s safe to say I was pretty surprised to find myself buying from both stores, but the girl at Levi’s was beyond helpful. Something that isn’t normal in Germany. Sales associates usually leave you alone, ie. completely ignore you, so for her to not only be willing to speak English, but also go out of her way, bringing me new items and giving her opinion, like an associate in the states would do, was pretty awesome.
And hard to pass up.
I saw “the last thing I…” on Callie’s blog, and thought it was too fun to pass up, so I’m jumping on the bandwagon. Feel free to jump on too. It’ll be a fun ride!
Last thing I ate: Technically…fried cheese bits that were left in the pan after I cooked eggs for tomorrow’s breakfast. Those really are the best things to munch on! Before that though, I ate the leftover gummy bears before grocery shopping. They always say, ‘never go to the store hungry’, right? This was just my way of preventing that. 😉
Ps.. gummies here are different than gummies in the states. Much yummier!
Last thing I drank: Water. Always water. Beyond my morning coffee, it’s nothing but water!
Last text I sent: “I know you do! You’ve stuck with that terrible job for almost a year, so you MUST love it.” Me telling my friend how much she loves torturing herself… I’m clearly an encouragement to her. 😉
Last book I read: Does an ongoing read count? I’m slowly working my way through The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Sounds terribly amateur, and it is, but it’s also pretty funny. Before that, I read Little Women, and that was the first time I’ve read it. It’s such a sweet book!! I highly recommend it for your daughter or yourself.
Last time I laughed: Thankfully, yesterday! We had friends over for dinner and games.. Wii video games that is, and all four of us are quite competitive. Lots of yelling, cheering, and laughing took place, and it was so much fun.
Last thing I bought: Boring answer: groceries… Less boring answer: my jeans over the weekend!
Last movie I saw: This Means War. Such a funny movie! Even the husband absolutely loved it **my words (obviously!). We were both laughing so hard throughout. Its a great girly movie with enough action and guy humor to sway even the most anti-romance movie of guys.
Last tv show I watched: We’re working our way through House. I have a like/hate relationship with this show. Have you seen it? The political agenda is gag-worthy sometimes, and I wanted to strangle him throughout the first 5…7 episodes for his arrogance and brash statements, but since we have running commentary during each episode, it helps ease my annoyance.
Last thing I googled: What the word “goad” meant. I was reading through Ecclesiastes 12:11 and it talked about “the words of the wise are like goads…” and I got curious! For the record, it’s a spiked stick used for driving cattle.. So, think of the wise words being used as a motivator to drive and encourage people.
If you do this on your blog, let me know. I want to read all your fun answers!
