A few weeks ago you may remember the funny story we told you about our silly restaurant idea. The restaurant called “You”? (All About You) Well this story continyoues with more things that are named
One of our travel tips for sleeping in new places is to get a noise app. When we first arrived in Vienna, Austria our apartment was SO quiet. Too quiet! It was actually hard for us to sleep because
The other day I was finishing off the last of a small bag of chips for lunch and happened to come across a chip with an oddly familiar shape. I couldn’t pass on the opportunity to show it along side the
We decided to stay in and rent a movie last night. The movie we chose was American Made – Doug Liman with Tom Cruise. It is about the CIA’s effort in the 70’s-80’s to battle communism in South America
The benefits of a hot water bottle include:

I had a few things in the US
James is a funny Poodle – any time we walk down stairs and start to speed up James wants to race us! It is really cute and James has been doing it here in Vienna in our building’s common stairwell.

I am a side sleeper. I love sleeping on my side. And with our super duper soft pillow top Stearns and Foster mattress I never had any trouble sleeping on my side. But when I stay with friends or family

How incredible that we live
We went shopping tonight at Leiner on MariahilferstraÃŸe. It is such a beautiful store – I love the architecture, the chandeliers, the staircases and even the eco-friendly escalators that go slow until
One thing you will definitely notice if you come to Vienna is the recycling bins. Vienna is very green and they make it very easy for you to recycle everything.
At our building we have garbage bins
I love the herringbone wood floor pattern in our flat. I always wanted a place with a pretty wood patterned floor and now I have one!
James is quite comfortable in our new flat in Vienna. We brought
When we lived in Orlando, FL we had the corded Dyson Animal. It was a great vacuum cleaner and it was well worth the money for our 1800 square foot house. But when we moved to Washington, DC we didn’t
On Saturday around noon Chris and I were both sitting at our computers when we heard a loud siren. It sounded like the siren you hear in old movies – something to let you know that things were about to
We made it to Vienna, Austria!
Our flat is in the 4th district – just south of the 1st district which is Central Vienna. We can walk to the center of town and it takes about 20 minutes. We can also
We are moving on to our next big adventure – in Austria!!!
