So, what's new?

Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeal! In  less than a week we will see each other after 7 month of being apart. Yes, it's me, Iris that squealed, not Patrick...though he feels the same way. I know this isn't new to ya'll but... you didn't know it was less than a week, so HA! ☺ I also already picked out all my clothes and they take up less than half my suitcase! I am proud of myself...now we are just counting each day as it goes by...

We told you last week that Iris will be going to my church's Music School when she is here. Well, Iris never learned about shape notes and since she is advanced in everything else I told her what each of the shape notes are and  now she can learn them.

 What next?
(Iris) Patrick got a haircut. Your probably wondering what's special about that but I finally gave him a chance to get a flat top and see if I like it or not. I am girl that likes guys with hair on their head (you know what I mean?) and so I was very reluctant....well...lets just say...I can't wait for it to grow back. ☺

I think the newest new (Is there such a thing?) is the BLOG LAYOUT. You can read why we started this blog {here} but we both had no idea how big the blog world was! I (Iris) got more and more into it and we want to expand. Our old URL address was ridiculously hard and the blog name, fitting to the theme before, does not match much more (←tongue twister).  Patrick and I will continue to write posts together over the weekend about our long distant relationship which prayerfully will end this year.

Whats else is new?
  • Germany lost the soccer game against Italy. :(
  • We have a twitter account
  • I started  Pinterest
  • We are planning a giveaway at the end of the month!!! Stay tuned
  • Its hot..I guess you knew that...

What's new with you? We love hearing from you!


  1. I can't even imagine how excited you both must be!!! I hope you have a wonderful time while you're here, Iris! Like there's any question of you having a wonderful time with your fella, anyway!!! :)

    Yes, it is HOT!

  2. I was so disappointed when Germany lost to Italy as well! :( Germany is our favorite national team! I was glad that in return Spain stomped Italy 4 - 0!!! :-) So happy for y'all!

    1. Oh well. I really do not keep up with soccer though I do route for Germany. What is real funny is how we can tell by our neighborhood if Germany won or lost. If Germany got a "Tor", fireworks go of, cars honk, people scream. When Germany was losing you could have let a pin drop outside and everyone would have jumped it was so quiet! :D
