Check out my new blog design!



Thanks to my very talented friend Don, of Adeline's Daddy blog, Sometimes Sweet has a brand new look!  I am so, so in love with it, and have to thank Don for coming up with the entire concept, design, etc. etc. He's amazing.

If you need a blog redesign, Don is the man to do it!  He's extremely creative, talented, and professional. I can't say enough good things about this guy and the work he does. There's something about a new blog design that is so inspiring and really gets me excited about blogging (it's kind of like giving your home a makeover!), and with the new year approaching, there's no time like the present to change things up. I encourage all of you who are considering freshening up your blog to get in contact with Don. His rates are super reasonable and like I said above, he's wonderful to work with!

I hope you all enjoy the new look- I know I do! We'll be tweaking little things here and there but feel free to grab my new button if you'd like, and thanks again for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow with a million pictures from our Halloween night- we had the best time.

And thanks again, Don, for making my blog so beautiful!

Lift 'em Up!

A lot of work - a lot of photos. Yep, a commercial and very pleasing graff job teamed up with my buddy Chris at the city harbour. A little story about living in Hamburg city & port and traveling around the world by ship... Still happy with the result. I guess we just made it trough these 10 days of work by having all these classy canteens and chip stands around at the free port... and some moving punk rock music from The Accidents.

This past week...

I wore a lot of fall colors,

took Henry to our public library's storytime,

played games and sang Halloween songs with him,

treated myself to a delicious breakfast,

visited baby Zelia and her proud parents (mama Mary not pictured),

made up my own concoction of sea-salt dark chocolate raspberries,

laughed at my toothy, goofy boy and took a lot of walks in the cool mornings,

went to a dinner party at The Molines...

enjoyed homemade soup,

got in some Adie time,

Hank cooked us a delicious vegan meal,

we snapped lots of family photos,

enjoyed the gorgeous fall days,

had an apple slice dipping bar + Hocus Pocus night at our house,

and we bought our Christmas tree! Although we won't be putting it up quite yet!

How about you? Did you do anything fun this past week?

Five ordinary things banned in other countries

Governments in every country makes its own laws and regulations that may be allowed in another country. Here is a list of some of the most natural things but banned by the government of that country, prepare to be surprised.

1. Russia - Clothing EMO Banned

The Russian government decided to put a ban on the use of clothing / fashion theme of EMO to reduce the number of suicides among teenagers. The government treats this for national stability. 

2. Australia - Film with small fruits Banned


One more peculiarity is the vulgar movie banned in Australia if the female has small breasts because the impression is it looks like a minor.

3. China - Avatar in 2D format Banned

Strange is government still imposed a ban in China is boycotting movie Avatar in 2D format, because the government had reason if Avatar is suitable, only be enjoyed in 3D format. And because 3D Cinemas in China is very little, then this movie is not widespread circulation in China.

4. China - Gaming Console Banned
Most of the gaming console manufactured in china. and surprisingly, prisons in china forced the prisoners to play World Of Warcraft so that the results can be sold into real money. The reason gaming console is banned because the government feared its youth spend more time playing games than working. Although the ban is not so effective as of now.

5. China - Prohibition of Reincarnation Before Getting Permission From Government

Another strange thing, how can mereinkarnasi with prior government approval? actually the reincarnation of the god's permission or license administration?. ridiculous ..

Then & Now: Happy Halloween!


It's amazing how much changes in a year. Last October we were anxiously awaiting Henry's arrival, putting up Halloween decorations and daydreaming about that next year when we'd be able to take our almost one-year old son trick-or-treating. Fast forward 12 months and Henry is here, and tonight we're taking him trick-or-treating. Looking back like this never ceases to amaze me with how quickly time goes by, but also how wonderful it is that in a year's time, life can become so much better than we'd ever imagined. Thinking like this makes me excited for next year, and wondering what will be happening then as I look back at this year and Henry's first Halloween.

Happy Halloween, everyone! I hope you have the most magical night full of spookiness, candy and fun. We'll be heading out with our little monster later tonight.

Our Town's Halloween Festival

This weekend was full of family time and Autumn fun! Saturday we headed downtown to our town's Halloween Festival and checked out all of the fun costumes, fall holiday booths, and spooky games. It's so small town and so, so cute. Henry was wide-eyed the entire time and we had a great time looking at all of the older kids and all of the super creative outfits everyone had on. I can't wait until next year when Henry will be walking and talking with the best of 'em. Exciting.

This year Henry is a monster, and he pretty much hates wearing the hat of his costume (as shown below!). Tomorrow we are going trick-or-treating, so I'm going to attempt to somehow grab a photo of his whole outfit, but if yesterday was an indication the odds are not in our favor. We shall see though!

Here are some photos of our fun day:
