It's time for Mario Kart again! I've been waiting for Mario Kart 8 for ages now, and finally yesterday was the release day. Of course we had to get the Limited Edition with a blue shell figurine XD. Here you can see the box. I couldn't wait to open it! And here's the game and the blue shell. I does look a bit intimidating, doesn't it? I think it's a really cool item. It matches our Mario figure collection perfectly! The Mario Kart games are on my top list of longest or most played games, together with Final Fantasy XI, Borderlands 2 and...

Last weekend we had some delicious barbecue pork belly and wanted to have garlic bread with it. But why buying some mediocre ready-made garlic or herb baguettes, when you have so many fresh herbs right outside at your disposal? So we decided to make our own baguette this time. Since we still had some leftover "party baguette" from the day before, which are a little bit wider and bigger than normal baguettes you can get here, we just used these as a base. They were still edible on the second day, but way to soft to really enjoy them like they were. Here's...

Only 10 weeks left!!! That doesn't really sound that long anymore, but on the other hands it's still more than two months until our baby will be here. We already got all the most important things and prepared most of the baby room, but there's still much more we need. I ordered a lot of things for Baby Flynn online, like the co-sleeping bed or baby buggy, because we both don't have a car, but also some smaller things as well. So recently I received a lot of parcels and with that amazing wonderlands for the cats - boxes. I just don't...

The weather in March was beautiful, no comparison at all as to what we had last year. I can't remember that we had such a perfect spring in long time. It was warm (up to 24°C on several days) and always sunny. I really can't remember any spring at all in the last years, the weather always changed right from snow to heat. April is a little bit different now, but it stays true to its name: The weather changes from sunny to cloudy to rain to hail to storm every five minutes. You can't really trust the weather forecast at all...

Hi everyone! I'm really sorry about the lack of updates in the last months. Somehow I just didn't feel like writing much. And then so much has changed in my life as well: Last year in November Tom and me found out that we will be expecting a child. I was really surprised at first, not that I became pregnant of course XD, because we wanted to have children now and stopped using any birth control in late summer, I already stopped using Evra in late 2012, but since as you might know I was having a pretty hard time and had to...

Last week when I went shopping, I found a great new essie nail polish color called "dive bar" (#90). It's a black-blue color with a pretty turquoise shimmer. Somehow I've never seen it before, so I thought it has to be a color from a limited collection but when I checked the essie website later, I found out that it's one of the standard colors. Normally I don't really like black nail polishes, because they look quite boring, but with the great green-bluish shimmer it really looks different and special. I'm a big fan of nail polishes with some shimmer in it....

I'm hoping for the best, but it's getting colder and colder each day, especially in the nights. Well, as long as it's not freezing cold or raining or just grey for half of...

I'm really sorry for the lack of updates as of late. When I wasn't at work, eating or sleeping I was playing Final Fantasy XIV - a lot. Well, I played it pretty much on any occasion, but I'm not one of those players who just rush through a game and get to max level in one or two weeks. For now our highest jobs are White Mage and Dragoon with level 30, followed by Arcanist and Marauder at level 25. I also spend a lot time on the gathering and crafting classes to get good materials and create my own armor....
