Welcome to our life!

Hi, I'm Allison! I'm a thirtysomething, freshly baked, stay-at-home mom. I'm originally from Connecticut, now living in Germany, hence the name of the blog. I live in southern Germany with my German husband and our baby boy. Life has turned out to be nothing I ever expected, and am so incredibly happy with it! We certainly do have a lot of laughs! I hope you will enjoy following our new experiences raising a little half American/ half German in a little German town.

So, I think that I have successfully broken yet another camera card. I love my camera, it is wonderful, and PINK!!
But, I keep breaking the cards. I don't know how, but I seem to be pretty specialized at screwing up those cards. Sooooo frustrating!
Here's what you would have seen if I hadn't made the mistake...
1. My new, really cool, secret from Joern haircut.
2. The most delicious cheesecake I had tonight from Stockbridge's in Shelton.

Since I cannot supply those pictures, I will instead talk about a few other things.
I have two really cool things to look forward to...
I am going to see two Broadway shows in the next 8 days! I just booked my ticket for Curtains, with David Hyde Pierce (Niles from Frasier.) I have read great reviews of the show, and well, I am going to be in the same room as Niles. It is simply too much for me! image from www.curtainsthemusical.com
And next Sunday, I will be headed back into the city with my cousin Elizabeth to see Young Frankenstein with Megan Mullally (Karen from Will and Grace!) Again, I am dying of excitement!

Another cool event happened tonight at CVS. For those readers who may not know, CVS is a huge drugstore chain here in the US. So, I was in line waiting to buy all my exciting inexpensive wrapping paper to bring back to Germany. A girl was in line behind me with two adorable little kids. I could hear that she had an accent, and while I was trying to place it, she started telling the little boys that in Germany, people say "Huba Buba" to Hubba Bubba gum. Of course, I so had to turn around and start talking to her. Turns out, she is from north of Frankfurt, and is an au pair here in Fairfield for the next year. She is really enjoying her time here, but says German food is better. How funny, maybe she can title her blog, "The Adventures of a German girl in Fairfield!"
I am having the most amazing time on this trip finding people with German ties, reminding me that my home is never far away.
