Whew, this has been a crazy week! I had testing and an interview in Amsterdam for school, Book Club, an interview for a tutoring job, and a last minute freelance job start. It's been great! But I forgot to take a lot of pictures of my explorations. I did however manage a few.

I admit it, I have utterly failed in keeping up with the FATMUMSLIM photo challenge. But I have still been taking photo's. So, I thought I would post them on Sunday's from now on. It's my week in Instagram!

You might have noticed that I missed last weeks post. In fact, I have been a little lax on posting for the last two weeks. I'm not going to make excuses, I'm just going to try and do better. Here are the photos for this week's FatMumSlim Photo Challenge.

We are finally at the end of March. Which means that, I have blogged every single day this month! During the process, I saw my blog traffic increase drastically, as well as the amount of interaction from you guys! It has been really fun to challenge myself to try and make all the photos somehow relate to my life as an expat. It spurred all sorts of "oh yeah, I should blog about this" moments. But, it also limited some of the topics that I wanted to talk about this month, because I didn't want to over post. I am also going to continue my daily blogging, but now about the topics I choose.

We don't have any toys in our house. Well, I guess there is the xbox, but we use that now for watching DVD's. I am not a huge gamer, but we do own two board games. Scrabble, and the only game I like: Rummikub. I got it for Christmas. Anybody want to come over and play it?

So, I was lying in bed, trying to fall asleep when I realized that I had missed today's photo challenge! I immediately got up to post this dear one's. That's how much you mean to me! Which means, you are going to forgive me for posting this a little after midnight.
Here you are, two distinctive pictures of my feet, for two very distinctive seasons here in The Netherlands. The top one was when the canals were frozen this winter and the bottom is last year at The Keukenhof. Both times I'm walking on water! It's a gift!

Trash is interesting here in The Netherlands. For months after we moved into our apartment, there was a dumpster as construction crews were still working on the building next door. We now have these contraptions on our street. You put your trash in them and it disappears. Sometimes, household items are put out by them, but they almost always disappear into someone else's house before the garbage truck comes.

Before I left The States, my dear friends were nice enough to throw me a lingerie bridal shower. It was amazing and so much fun, a girl couldn't ask for a better send off! Then a few weeks later I got this lovely book of pictures in the mail from my friend Kay! It makes a lovely addition to my home decor and is an easy flip through when I really miss my friends!

I've mentioned before that one of my favorite words in Nederlands is sleutels, which means keys. So, here are my sleutels, apartment key, building key, and bike key. My bike has its own built in lock, you bike with your keys in the lock and then take them out when you are ready to lock up! One key that is missing, a car key. I'm totally okay with that!
