London calling

It's official.
After tour I'll be heading out to London for 2 months, just booked my tickets and am so excited I can't put it in words... the day I got the job offer I was doing a happy dance around the house :)
Can't wait to be back in the big city and catch up with friends.
Of course I've picked the darkest time to go there but at the moment I don't care and Christmas is quite a magical time anyway.
Loving life right now. God is not just good, He is above and beyond! Yes He is!

Schnorres weekend pt 4 the girl edition

While the boys battled it out, we finally did what we've been saying for about a year:
we swapped clothing!
Lisl sent us all a long list of criteria we were to fulfill (haven't worn it in a year, don't feel comfortable wearing it, my partner doesn't like it, etc) and we spent all summer clearing out our closets. I do this on a regular basis as I move around so much, but if you've never done that, please try it. It will not only make some space in your wardrobe but also free yourself, definitely feels good to give stuff away and not to hold on to possessions.
 we started off with delicious chicken chowder
 Sophie creating a fab playlist
 wherever Ruth is, there's dessert :)
 let the fun begin: jewellery and hair accessories 
 can you imagine 9 girls trying on clothes haha the mirror was def too small

Everyone found at least a couple pieces with Lisl getting a whole new collection as she bagged everything that got too tight or short for us :) You might call this whole adventure guilt free shopping haha
The next day we all slept in and spent hours going through wedding pics from Ruth & Ian's big day. 
Later the boys returned, smelling smokey (kinda like a bonfire) and we all looked through photos from the Schnorres games :) Happy days, gang. Always a pleasure to hang with you xx

Schnorres weekend pt 1

Not entirely sure who came up with this idea, but it must have been on New Year's Eve when the boys decided to challenge 1. EC Schnorres(what the heck ist that? explanation here, we also donned their jerseys here) to a game of American football, since they've been bragging so much about their sports skills :)
The one game turned into a weekend of sports up in a cabin for the boys, while we decided to have a girly weekend!
Friday came and team "rest of the world" farewelled us to try their luck against the Schnorres youngsters.
since most Schnorres boys are sporting moustaches,  team"rest of the world" decided to go anti mo :) 
 a girl weekend starts with waffles
Saturday came, sun beating down on us and we decided to go and cheer the boys - well mostly lie out in the sun!
 penalty kicks
 rest of the world won!!!!
 team rest of the world(representing Austria, Germany, UK & USA)
lazy girls watching boys giving their all
next discipline: whizzy ( a Drew word for a frisbee/flying ring!!!) they had to land the ring in certain places on the field... too funny as both team were crap and the only one who managed to consistently throw well was Henning who manned the goal and threw it back to the teams hahahaha
Schnorres boys
look at those mos :)
More fun photos including American football and sideline antics and one of the funnest videos tomorrow!
