Things to do in Arkansas - Walk on the Bottom of a Lake!

Happy 2020 everyone! I'm sorry it's been so quiet around here. I promise to do better! I have to many things I wanted to share, like pictures of my trip to Europe, tell you about me renovating a house and moving.. So much was going on. I hope one of these days, when I'm unpacked and handed over the keys to my old apartment, I'll be able to sit down, work on posts, and get them out to you.

Lake Monticello Arkansas

Even our little road trips aren't as frequent anymore right now. But after seeing it on the news, J and I went on a little adventure past Saturday. Lake Monticello is about an hour away from where we live. The lake is undergoing a drawdown so that the dam can be repaired and the fish habitat rebuilt.

Meaning: We were able to literally walk through the lake, on the bottom of the lake since it's drained.

I posted a few pictures in one of my Facebook Groups, and after that post went viral, I though I'll have to share some photos on here, too. I did MINIMAL editing, because the photos I took are very true to what it looked like that day. Enjoy!

The Taste of Home // Getting my German Groceries here in the USA!

I came back from my trip to Europe a little over two weeks ago, and realized I forgot to do one major thing: more shopping! In my latest YouTube video I shared what I actually brought:


But I sure forgot to hit the grocery store to buy some Knorr and Maggi seasonings, and probably more Lebkuchen, Domino Steine, Marzipan Kartoffeln, and all the other German Christmas goodies. Thank goodness I can now find most of the things right here in the USA, and I can even go shopping at my local World Market! I found so much online, I sure have to plan a visit this weekend.

Last Minute Halloween Costume Ideas under $40

Ooops, Halloween is just a few days away - and I bet you don't have your costume yet! I had to get something put together within MINUTES yesterday, since I was named a judge in a costume contest at our annual "Boo at the Pool" about 2 hours before the event started. So I rushed into Walmart since I only had about 45 minutes after work to find something AND put it on before heading to the pool.

I have spent $38 on the veil, cape, tutu and stockings. If I had more time I would have sure checked out Amazon. They have an awesome selection and thanks to Amazon Prime, the costume would have been here in no time. Oh well. Maybe I will get another costume for our office Halloween on the 31st.

Long story short - I don't want YOU to spend $40 on mediocre things that you randomly put together, so here is a list of pretty awesome costumes. ALL under $40.
