One of the things that I really missed in Europe was (and still is) The Cheesecak Factory! I just love that place and I was sooo happy when we went there for lunch yesterday. I had a white chocolate and raspberry truffle cheesecake and OMG it was heaven(again lol).

cheesecake factoryshuffling at least 1.000 calories into my system…it was worth it!

As the weather kinda sucked yesterday we decided to go to a mall and do some (serious) shopping. And guess who we met? The only other German in Dallas who is more famous than me:

After browsing through some stores I found THE dress:

Bling BlingJule – the discoball

Of course I had to try it on…it was not that easy to get in there(especially when you dont notice that there actually is a zipper which would make it easier 😉 ). I did not buy it though as I am on a budget and it was kinda expensive ;)…well, next time – for sure!

When we came back from the mall we chilled a bit and watched Mamma Mia! Today we mostly ran some last-minute errands and got ready for the rehearsal dinner. I’ve never been to one so it was very exciting! We drove to the Maple Manor Hotel, which is the wedding venue and rehearsed the procedure of the wedding and when and where people have to walk, line up, carry and hand over bouquets. I have to go down those kinda steep stairs in a very long dress and heels tomorrow and I’m kinda scared that I’ll just roll down those stairs…we’ll see how it ends 😉

When we were done rehearsing we went to an Italian restaurant and had some yummy dinner and after that we drove back home and had a little “Rock Star”(guitar hero) session with Queen songs. It was lotsa fun but I was getting very tired. And now I am still up telling you guys all that crap. I have to get up again in 6,5 hours the latest. We’re getting a pedicure and then we have to get ready for the wedding!Aaahhhh I’m so excited!!!! I’m kinda sad though cuz my “vacation” is almost over but at least we will all be celebrating and ending this great stay and Liz&Dave with a big bang!

Oh man…that was one rough weekend! Actually I planned on having a nice chilled and relaxing weekend as it was the last one before my trip but that did not work out quite well. I was sick (again) but this time it was worse. I felt horrible and sleepy and like staying in bed. But then I pumped myself with antibiotica and made a quick and spontanous visit to IKEA with Jenni and Enrico and bought stuff I did not really need…except for the new bright orange slippers ;).  This was followed by a little movie night. I thought I could just sit there and pass out. But noooooo of course Enrico and Jenni chose a movie which would cheer everybody up: MAMMA MIA! (which I’m gonna see again in a few days with Lizzie!!!)…so instead of falling asleep we sang…well Enrico did, I was just laughing!

The next day(which was actually Sunday already) was followed by some more antibiotica, hot tea and studying. I finally had to start my home exam for my “promotion” class.

school workActually I planned on having the entire exam done by the end of the weekend but that did not really happen. And I’m still not done as it is very complex. The deadline is Oct.30th but I want to have it done before I leave for Texas as I won’t have time and energy to do anything while I’m there.

Then Monday came and my voice was gone. Nice trade huh? Didn’t go to my morning class as I felt horrible but eventually I left the house to run some errands and because I was so depressed that I could not speak I cheered myself up and went shopping 😉 and it worked!!

It was like destiny…I went in there and I could see it from a galaxy far,far away…blinging and looking all amazing…my new treasure:

bling blingI look like a glitter ball wearing it but Christmas is just 2 months away and in between I’ll just wear it to some party (combined with black leggings and boots or heels?) or whenever I feel like being awesome 😉

Ok back home I worked on my exam again and kinda skipped my last evening class. And then I thought with me having been very poductive all day I could go to bed early tonight so I’m well-rested to start working on a presentation with my IMEA(International Marketing Analysis Programme) team mates tomorrow morning. Well I guess I have to do that without being well-rested…but that’s ok. I can do that because I’m awesome – at least that’s what people keep on telling me 😉

P.S. we had the first snow this season today!!! Don’t know why that sounds so exciting cuz I’m not ready for that yet 🙂
