Home is where the Heart is Part 3

Home was a whirlwind of fun, friends and food!!! 

I had the most amazing time and if you'll notice I look thinner in this photo then I do towards the end.  You can see my visible weight gain as this post goes on.. I gained 10 pounds while I was home FML!!!! ahahahahaha.

Anyways I went to this place called Rebounderz and it's just a giant room of trampolines!  It was pretty neat.. and here you see me wearing the helmet.. and I found out afterwards that only kids wear helmets.. what the efff.... BAHAHAHA.

So neat right? :p

Go Wilson! :)

Bubble tea afterwards! WOOT!

Had to get in as many bubble tea fixes as possible while I was home hehe.

Mini high school reunion!

Some people I hadn't seen in 10 years!

Mini sliders w/ mozzarella, gouda and gorgonzola and Onion strings
Omgosh this was SOOOOOOOO NOMS.  Next time I go I'm ordering a plate for myself ahahahaha.

Their pizza was delicious!  

I love thin crust almost flatbread type pizza less carb & calories ahahahaha! Plus I prefer the toppings anyways and I don't like filling up on all that dough.

Yay :)!

  2. Good thing I had dinner right before reading your post! Don't blame you for gaining weight. ALL the food looks like it was well worth it :D At least now that you're back in Germany you can eat a bit healthier to make up for it? hehe & The trampolines looks so fun! I've never been on one before.

  3. You eat the best foods!

    Also, weight fluctuation is normal. Happens to me ALL the time! Especially during the cold months. Just try to get some exercise in and you'll be fine.

  4. Wow! All the food looks so delicious. I'm so envious XD I'm glad you had a great time. It's always great to go back home.

    With ♥, Lisa

  25. Great post !! It must be a fabulous experience ! Delicious food too :)

  26. Good times with good friends is <3

    Gained weight or not, you still look gorgeous! :)

  27. Hahahahahaha! <-- the first thing I do is laugh lol at the helmet thing! Actually it sounds like something I'd do too and be so embarrassed about. The trampolines look cool but I'd be bored in 5 mins not to mention my abs would start hurting and I'd be cramping up (can you tell I'm out of shape? lol) I'd also be scared of kids coming at my with their headgear. Believe it or not but I actually scrolled back and forth to see the weight gain but I didn't see anything , I want my money back LOL Omg bubble tea is the best or do you call it boba in the states? Anyways it's so delish, my favorite drink is green tea milk tea OMG want.

    The plate of mini sliders look insane. Like I wouldn't be able to eat fried food for a week afterwards lol and I also adore thin crust pizza and never understood the whole stuffed crust or fluffy crust thing. ew . Omg the chihuahua is like "get me away from this crazy lady" and the other doggy a puppy? So cute! I wanna eat all those yummy foods too, especially the plate of Vietnamese rice and goodies! Oh the drip coffee there is so good too but....I wish it'd drip faster LOL

    re: YES! If we ever hung out we'd be best food buddies ever! I was just thinking the other day how lucky I am to live in a city filled with so many different types of Asian food! It's not just chow mien and dim sum but specifics too! But the asian food court food was from an asian mall haha did I cheat? Omg we both got tricked into eating oatmeal! Maybe we should try washing our faces with it lol (bubzbeauty swears by it!)

  28. Omggg girly, so much yummy food!
    I love trampolining! Always a fun time :)

  29. totaly cool shoes :)

    independent fashion blog by

  30. That trampoline place is so cool! Wish we had a place like that here! Your posts always makes me soo hungry lol happy Chinese New Year!

  31. i gained 10 lbs reading that post. Love your food pics and your commentary, so funny! Also, your skin always looks so radiant. You must do a makeup and skincare post one of these days (if you say it's genetics, i will be very put out, LOL)

  32. That food!

  33. The 3 Fs... Fun, Friends and Food! So heartwarming to be spending lovely moments with your friends back at home. Looks like everyone had so much fun.

    Why? Why didn't you notice that the helmet is for kids. Hahaha... Nvm it is a picture worthy shot.

    I'm so jealous of all the food that you are eating. Seriously blog police shouild lock you up for posting such delicious food photos that kill. The HUGE pizzas, the mini burgers that look so sinful, the asian pork chop rice. Ooh... and the tuna tartar... reminds me of my time in Maldives.

    It is 11.55pm here and I've yet to eat dinner due to my late lunch. Oh and it is 5 min to Valentine's Day here. Happy V day!
