I didn't have any exciting trips this past weekend or much of anything exciting so no cute vlog intro or anything like that this week. I guess you will get to see what the real life of Ashley is like...

What I loved about this past week//

Well, it was Valentine's Day and even though I didn't actually spend it with John, we did exchange pictures and talked for quite a while on the phone during his lunch break. It was so great to just get the time to talk.

I got this Coca-Cola shirt for Valentine's day, and if y'all knew me... you would know that I am in love with Coke! Like loooooove Coke! (That just reminded me, I never did an Untold Stories of John and Ashley for February and it was supposed to be about Coke... so come back in March to read about that!)

Anyway, I broke in my Coca-Cola shirt by wearing it to dinner with my German neighbors. She made this wonderful German meal for me. It was awesome! Something else you might not know is I'm half German. I've never really had an interest in my German half because, well... I always thought my half Irish side was cooler.

So we had German Schnitzel, a sort of Rotkohl, and fried potatoes. Okay, I'm guessing you want a translation... As you can guess, the fried potatoes are just fried potatoes. They might have had a German name, but I didn't catch it. Our main meat was the Schnitzel, we had pork though apparently it could have been made with veil. And the Rotkohl is cabbage made with a red wine. And I say sort of Rotkohl because I don't think it was the traditional Rotkohl with onions and apples in it. If it had that, I couldn't taste it. In any case it was an absolutely wonderful meal and I can't wait to try my hand at cooking German food!

What I'm looking forward to//

Making more crafts for American Honey Crafts. This weekend Suzanne and I created a Facebook page for our crafts. You should totally go check it out and like it! (Shameless plug for our craft shop there!) We made 2 new pieces and can't wait to make more. I've been getting inspiration from everywhere lately.

What I'm daydreaming about//

I went on an interview a few weeks ago and I've been daydreaming about what it will be like if I can get this job. Y'all... seriously. I would love to have this job. Let's just say if you knew me, and you knew how much I am into beauty and hair care and stuff like that, you would think I was a perfect fit for this job. So keep your fingers crossed that I get in with this company!

Car Selfie//

What's Up Wednesday?! I've been taking this beauty out for a spin!

I have a 3000GT that I absolutely love. I honestly can't believe I'm lucky enough to be able to drive around in it. I don't often drive it though because it takes premium gas and let's face it, I don't want to fork out the $3.20 plus a gallon to fill the tank. Plus I hate taking it to public places where some jerk can ding my door. So I drove it to game night last week and when I got to Suzanne's house, I had to take a car selfie. One of my friends made fun of me and eventually took a picture of me with my car... So yeah, it turned out a lot better. Needless to say.... I love my car!

The Reads//

This past week I started American Sniper by Chris Kyle. I pretty much already know what is going to happen in the book since I went to watch the movie... but I still wanted to read it. Y'all will have to stay tuned for a talk about the book and a song I relate to the book/movie.

What has been going on in your lives? Link up with us so I can read all about you!
