Thank God for Toussaint! :)

Hey everybody!

sorry for the lack of posts lately, but not a whole lot of anything has happened worthy of writing about. aha. School, french lessons, homework, meeting with friends and the family.. :)

BUT, i do have a week long break coming up this week, for which i am so excited for! It's called Toussaint, which is also called All Saints Day. My friend Nicky (elle vien de Missouri et est en La Belgique aussi!) is coming for 2 days and were going to shop and eat and have a grand ol' time! aha. also going to Walibi, the amusement park here, for Halloween Monster Fest! Who knows what else. should be a fun break! especially the part about having no school: Thank God for Toussaint :)

on a sadder, more depressing note: we ate the last sugar cookie today..

.. my mom sent sugar cookie mix a few weeks ago (with icing, sprinkles, the works!) and now, they are happily digesting in our stomachs. aha. but no worries, i have Belgian chocolate, waffles, and frites to make me feel better! ;)

Talk to ya guys soon!

Bienvenue ver la France!

Hey Everybody!

Funny story: last weekend my host dad took me to France! We saw all the amazing things France has to offer.. the countryside, Paris, and of course, what's a trip to France without seeing the Eiffel Tower?? :)

haha, had you going for a second, didnt i? At least about Paris and the Eiffel Tower. BUT, not about the being in France part. because i really was! lol! we drove pass the sign that said we were now entering France, and then we literally pulled over and turned around back into Belgium! Why? you might ask, weeeeell its because my host aunt lives about 10 minutes from the border, of course! aha! It was super exciting and disappointing all at the same time.. i just hope if i go back, ill get a little farther next time..

But now i can officially say ive been to France! i know, exciting, right? Well, it is for me! ;)

Just one of my fun adventures of my life here in Belgium,
Talk to ya guys soon!

Hey all!

You'll all be happy to know that on Saturday night, i ate my first ever bucket of Belgian Mussels! aha! with a side of Belgian frites, and washed down with an Belgian beer. Let's just say, i was so Belge that night it wasn't even funny! but, no, it was awesome, and after me and family danced and danced and danced until 3am! :)

And also on Sunday, my host mom and sister brought home a new baby kitten! He is adorable! and hopefully he'll like me a little better than Miffy. (the cat who they already had) :)

Just a small update! Talk to ya soon!
