Happy Wednesday you guys, 

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

it is a big day over here today as I am turning 30. I have to admit I wasn´t quite sure what to think about that -not that I could have stopped it in any way – but I think I am fine with it.

In fact there isn´t a thing I could be sad about. I have a great husband, a pretty house, a super cute dog and a baby girl on the way so there isn´t a thing I could wish for more – at least in my personal area.

One thing I got myself for my birthday which also has been a long dream of myself has been a designer bag. To be more exact a Louis Vuitton Neverfull. I have saved up money for this bag for years and managed to get it two days before my 30th birthday although it has been sold out for months prior. I call that very lucky. 

We spent the afternoon in Nuremberg for Starbucks coffee and more Starbucks coffee.That has been my request as our nearest Starbucks coffee shop is about an hour away in every direction. It ended up being a great day having dinner at one of our favorite Greek restaurants and my parents and in-laws. 

I have never been super into celebrating my birthday and really don´t make a fuss about it. Having a nice day and going out for dinner is really enough for me.

Hope you also had a great hump day today. The week is almost over. Just one and a half to go. See you tomorrow.

It is small and cozy and the food is beyond delicious.

Tacco Bar and Happy Birthday to my soon to-be husband – mexican fiesta birthday party theme…

…. 

Hi guys, 
(post contains affiliate links/Werbung-Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)
Tuesday two days ago marked the 4th of September which means we were celebrating my soon to be husband´s birthday. 


It was a special birthday, not the number, but the last one without a
“wife”. We are getting married next week and I am so looking forward to
it. Can´t wait to be married to this awesome man I love so much and
spend the rest of our lives together hopping from one adventure to
another or even sitting on the sofa watching one Netflix series after
another.


So
I am wishing him again a great year of 28 (we celebrated with
family and friends over at our house). He really enjoyed his party and had a great night.


I am quite sure by now you have recognized our party theme. I wanted to go with a Mexican Fiesta theme and have a tacco bar. A tacco bar is like a buffet but only is stocked with foods that go perfectly into and with your tacco.


I really love Mexican food and everyone else loved it too. The guacamole and the salsa was homemade by me (you can view the salsa recipe here and the guacamole contained avocado, garlic, cream cheese and salt and pepper). I also offered red peppers, green jalapenos, tomatoes, scallions, salad, corn, kidney beans, two kinds of cheese and chicken and minced meat spiced with tacco seasoning from Fuego. The tacco shells where from the same brand and totally fine. I got them from amazon with lots of other practical stuff like the tacco shell holder to present them properly and also a warmer with two oven dishes to keep the meat warm and enjoyable. 


For dessert I planned on making a fruit salad and of course Florian´s birthday cake. Also my mom made rum balls from the leftover dough. I used half a melon as fruit bowl which is always cool and guests love that. The rum balls fit perfectly on the etagere and looked so pretty in their colorful chocolate papers. For the birthday cake I had this cake as a model. It isn´t the same but wasn´t bad either and in the end I decided to go with cream cheese frosting rather than with fondant. I added the wooden number to the cake which gave it extra stability and little sugar cacti.

Most of the party supply I am using is from Pink Dots Party Store or from amazon. The variety can not be found anywhere else.

There are so many themes to choose from and I think I have some pretty good ideas for a Halloween party. Stay tuned.


Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.

Happy birthday to me….

Hi everyone,

today
is really just a quick post cause I am celebrating my birthday today
and Florian has planned some awesome things for me besides having a
great breakfast and opening my presents.

Heute gibt es nur einen kurzen Post, da ich heute Geburtstag habe und Florian ein paar Dinge geplant hat neben Frühstück und meine Geschenke öffnen.

We already went out for my birthday dinner yesterday becaue the restaurant I wanted to go so bad has closed every Sunday since January – really bad timing. Also I figured out my top 5 restaurants for our city now, so I am planing on doing a reccomendation post for you guys in case you are ever to my area.
I got this great birthday balon I already wanted last year unfortunately I did not celebrate my birthday last year because I was ill, so I had to wait another full year. And waiting for something doesn´t count to my strenghts. 

Wir haben bereits gestern mein Geburtstagsessen gemacht, da das Restaurant zu dem ich unbedingt wollte hat am Sonntag Ruhetag – schlechtes Timing. Jetzt habe ich auch meine Top 5 Restaurants für Regensbug zusammen. Ich plane darüber einen Post für euch falls Ihr mal in der Nähe seid.

Diese Jahr habe ich auch einen Geburtstagsballon bekommen. Ich wollte ja unbedingt letztes Jahr schon einen, aber ich habe meinen Geburtstag nicht gefeiert da ich krank war. Das heißt ich hab nochmal ein ganzes Jahr warten müssen und das Warten gehört wirklich nicht zu meinen Stärken. 

 

So I am wishing everybody a happy Sunday and see you tomorrow.
Take Care. See you.
