GOAL #12: Complete DSLR Lessons

  It’s already December, which means today makes my 12th and final GOAL post. Can you believe how quickly the year has gone by? I realized a few weeks ago that I may not be representing our GOAL list accurately as I have focused on those GOALs we have actually completed, or at least made […]

GOAL #11: Go on a formal “dress-up” date.

We checked off another one of our 2011 GOALs while we were in China last month. This GOAL read: -Go on a formal “dress-up” date (defined by Drew wearing his 3-piece suit). We planned a date out to see the famous Peking Opera and it provided the perfect occasion for us to dress up! Unfortunately, […]

GOAL #10: Plan and Host a Ladies Event in Hannover

It was one of the things I loved doing the most while we lived in Pasadena. Every few months or so, usually while Drew was away on a work trip, I would plan and host a ladies event. A Chocolate Party, a Pajama Party, a trip to the LA Arboretum- the events ranged in theme, […]

GOAL #9: Read 3 books- for leisure purposes only

We’ve been making new year’s GOALs for several years now. Most of the time these GOALs change from year to year, but some GOALs we enjoy so much that we repeat them each year. This month’s featured GOAL is one of those repeated GOALS: To each read at least 3 books for leisure purposes only. […]

GOAL #8: Practice what you preach.

“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” -Hebrews 4:12 The bible. It’s probably the most popular book every written, not to mention the most important. And yet so […]

I survived Yoga Class in Germany, aka GOAL #7

You’ll have to excuse this GOAL post coming in over a week overdue. Drew am I were blessed to spend the last 2.5 weeks entertaining family guests in Hannover and then traveling with them around Europe; and, well- blogging just got put on the back burner because of that. Now that our guests have returned […]

GOAL #6: Visit the Hannover Zoo, with Maxwell!

For starters, let me just clear the air by saying that no, I haven’t stopped blogging, nor have I fallen off the planet. πŸ™‚ The truth is simply that we’ve had some crazy {good} excitement in our lives lately which has made things rather busy around the Blue Cakes household.Β  So, I’ve been allowing myself […]

GOAL #5: Surprise Me!

It’s the first Friday of the month, which means that another GOAL post is in store. In our almost 7 years of married life, one thing that we have discovered to be important is to continue dating each other. Planning dates and outings together is great, but sometimes it’s also really to be surprised, and […]

GOAL #4: Pass the B1 German Test.

It’s April 1st! Happy April Fool’s Day! One of my favorite persons- my Dad- was born 60 years ago today- Happy Birthday Dad! (no, this is not an April Fools’ Day joke, today really is my father’s 60th birthday.) πŸ™‚ Ok, now on to the 4th GOAL in our 2011 GOALS series: Pass the B1 […]

GOAL #3: Take a vacation, just the two of us.

Can you believe it’s March already? It’s time for another GOAL post. Here it is, GOAL #3 for 2011: Take a vacation, just the two of us. Drew and I LOVE to travel. It is a bug that we both caught a long time ago and there is no sight of it ever going away. […]
