Here's another random post to catch up through February!

Dinner and a movie with the girls! I think this night we watched "The Proposal".

Thanks Robyn for my new sweater! LOVE it!

English and crocheting at the community center (by the way that isn't me...)

Watching the opening ceremonies with hot wings!

A beautiful sunrise. One of my favorite parts of the day.

One day my teacher showed up to teach us and we were wearing the same thing! Obvi we had to insta-it-up!

Valentine's day dinner at Big Chef's.

Me and some friends went to a local friend's house for breakfast and chatting.

Then we had a party to watch the hockey semi-finals and eat Papa John's pizza!

One day we went out for Chinese food. Those are always special and picture-worthy moments!

Then on the way back, we were walking on the sidewalk and wondering what the elephant with the brush tail figure in this bike lane meant...

Spring is coming! Tulips are beginning to bloom and trees beginning to blossom. So beautiful.


A traditional local breakfast. We went all out and made it for class one day...

Teen-sitting and playing wii bowling. I tried out a frozen s'more recipe and it wasn't bad!

Visiting a local church. Always a huge treat!

Riding the new metro across the water to one of our favorite parts of town where there happens to be a Fatburger!

Three pregnant friends at the community center!

One day Ronnie planned a basketball day with the guys. They hauled their net to a court and played around for a while. Praise the Lord his ankle is feeling well enough to play now!

Walking around our neighborhood...

One day I had a friend over for coffee. We set up the camera and took a couple pics! I thought the first one was funnily awkward so I wanted to include it =)

Happy February!

Yikes! Sorry folks... It's been tooo long. Due to the fact that I haven't blogged yet this year and I have pictures piling up, the next few posts might look more like "all of my random pictures from that month" posts. Here we go:

New Year's Eve asian-food outing! (I think I can politically correctly say "asian food" because it is a chinese/japanese/thai restaurant).

Finished my "best of my days" list for 2013! Also got an amazing surprise Christmas package!

Then, we took a short vacation to a resort-town in our country. Because of it being off-season, we got a really good rate, and really spoiled ourselves for a few days! It was amazing and I want to do it all over again... It was complete with free food, fluffy juice drinks, a spa experience (my Christmas present from my honey!), free afternoon desserts and coffee, and the sea!

Later that month, I went to my friend's birthday party, and they really went all out with the food!

There were a couple weeks when I faithfully used my new juicer to make fresh orange juice. It is great with the cheap seasonal fruits from the pazar.

My friend and I had the urge to make fish tacos, so we held a party, battered and fried fish, soaked and baked black beans, and even had fresh guac and salsa! It was a huge success and I wish we could have them every day! We even learned a new game called Snorta! good times...

During this month at one point, we went with one of our dearest friends to her daughter-in-law's house for coffee. The lady on the left is our friend, and the boy in the second picture is her grandson.

Also, I got into a little bit of a phasey crochet rut this winter. Now I have a lot of gifts to give away when we leave =).
