Day 329 – The Eola Squirrel

Those of you who know me a bit better might know that I find squirrels absolutely adorable! On top of that they make me laugh everytime they run/jum around – hillarious :o) I have no clue what it is about those little rodents that I like so much… Squirrels seem to be quite common in the US and Canada, not in Germany. The only squirrel I got to see was the occasional red squirrel in our yard that came out in the Fall. I...

Day 169 – Vamonos Taqueria is coming to Colonial Town Park Lake Mary

Walking around Colonial Towne Park in Lake Mary, many of you may already have noticed the banner hanging from the corner building across from Liam Fitzpatrick’s and Dexter’s. Vamonos Taqueria, Mexican restaurant chain is supposed to be opeing here real soon. I personally can’t wait to compare this place against Chipotle (my clear favorite when it comes to Mexican fast food), Qu’doba’s (not such a fan of...

Day 122 – Monkey Bar at Wall Street Plaza Orlando Downtown

Tonight we were part of yet another birthday surprise party, and even though it was the 3rd or 4th in a row it was a great party. The location chosen was the Monkey Bar in Downtown Orlando. The Monkey Bar is located on Wall Street Plaza (off Orange between Central and Washington Street). I really thought it was a great place to have a semi private (birthday) party. The bar provides the appetizers (you pay for those) and everything...

Day 120 – Crispers Salads and Such in Lake Mary

A great place to have a light lunch in Lake Mary is Crispers Salads and Such at the Colonial Towne Park Plaza (located next to Publix and in front of Heathrow Urgent Care). I’m usually not a big salad fan but for anyone who enjoys “green food” I can recommend this place. A great alternative are their flat breads. So if you recently started a diet or really don’t feel like filling up for lunch, Crispers is a...

Day 98 – Christmas Eve 2008

Finally – the day we all have waited for! As we have always done it in Germany we celebrated Christmas on Christmas Eve (“Heiligabend” for us). I am especially happy that I can have my parents and my sister Gabi here with me this year. We also had my friend Natascha over for dinner and our gift exchange. It was a great evening and even though we accidentally mixed up some gifts (oops), we finally got it all done and...

Day 81 – Stop War Sign

Came across this special stop sign when shopping today at Office Max on 46 in Sanford. This sign is on their parking lot, right in front of the store and as I walked by it I couldn’t resist and just had to take a picture of it. Kind of sends a clear message, doesn’t it? I love the contrast of the crisp blue sky with the red of the sign!
