Fatheads

Looking back at my Brazil pictures (which I will share once I am done sorting them out!), one moment that always makes me go, "YAAAASSSSS" is when Rob & I carried Messi & Di Maria (of Argentina WC Team) fatheads during the Belgium vs Argentina at Brasilia. 
me holding Messi and Rob holding Di Maria in Estadio Nacional, Brasilia.
We were kinda like celebrities for a day. Tons of Argentina fans wanted to take pictures with us, we were on the jumbo screen for a couple of times and even the Press Photographers kept on signaling us to pose and take pictures with these Fatheads...

So one day, during sleepy time in Sao Paulo, I started googling "Argentina Fans Brazil World Cup"... and low and behold I found this picture...

Then next thing you know I found out that they used these pictures for several news posts...
Univision Deportes & Fox News.
I woke Robert up and went, "HAHAHAHAHA WE IN THE NEWS" Even he was giddy (he rarely gets giddy). 

So for that game, it was a success... We brought the Messi Fathead to the Holland vs Argentina game in Sao Paulo but Mr. Security guy prohibited it. We were bummed... Esp when Argentina won the game via Penalty Kicks. 

Oh well. We had fun. Good thinking on my Boo for bringing these Fatheads. 
Thanks Kinko's for having fast printing service (btw, this is not sponsored by them).

I can't wait to share more about Brazil!

So...

Remember that little poem I did a while back?

I do have an exciting, nerve wracking, kinda sad yet happy news...


See the picture above?

Zurich Apartments.

The Pillow forwarded me the above email because he is moving to Zurich, Switzerland!!! In 2 weeks...

Which means... This little Bolu girl of yours will be moving to Switzerland too :)

But not until next year :(

Which means the dreaded long distance relationship. #wompwomp

I did LDR a long time ago and it was hard. But then again that's when I was still in High School. Fast forward a billion years later, I think I can handle that. The good thing is that either one of us will be flying in/out to see each other. I will probably be heading to Swiss in September/October to see him and check out our future apartment :)

Can you imagine? Me in Switzerland? I get to pursue my dream to become a Professional Yodeler and Yodel around the Alps. Jk.

Well, this past World Cup pilgrimage with Rob in Brazil was our 3 year celebration and a mini See-You-Later kinda trip. He is currently in Zurich and won't be back til Sunday. Even so I won't be able to see him til next weekend :( then after that he leaves the weekend after. 

So this year will be a challenging one. I can see lots of travel in the near future, but I would rather be right next to my boo any given day.

ZOMG, I'm going to be an Expat!

Weekly Wishes

The Nectar Collective

Man, it's been awhile since I blog like back to back. I'm on a weird blog-mood. The desire to blog has been decreasing (ain't denying here), I don't have anything else to blame but me. I've been to busy working and working (and baking) and getting sick that I just usually just stroll down my Bloglovin' and just read any blog that suits the mood. I don't know. Hopefully one day soon it the blogging kick will kick me in the ass and get going.

I haven't linked up in awhile. Of course we are all fans of Melyssa and her fabulous Monja (I want to kiss him), so as I did my daily scrolling down Bloglovin', I decided to click to her Weekly Wishes and decide to participate. As a big List fan, I want to make a list of wishes for the upcoming weeks ahead. Why? Because fun things are about to happen!

Last Week Wishes
Honestly I don't have none since this is the first installment of hopefully many. But I can create one. Haha. Last week Rob & I needed to do something important this weekend but it didn't happen because we were to busy watching the games of World Cup (who was upset with that last minute goal from Cristiano Ronaldo on that USA game? #sad). So our goal to check out our storage and go thru our stuffs didn't happen. Instead we just enjoy our football and spent great quality time, eating good food, and just literally enjoying each others company. Since we live so far from each other and only see each other on the weekends, QT is nice. Especially when we're gonna be... wait, I have to share that news later... when I get back from Brazil... Tee hee *insert suspense here*

This Week's Wishes
Just to get thru work and pack for my World Cup pilgrimage next week! Can not believe that we're leaving from Brazil next week! My coworkers were like, "Are you back from Brazil already?" And I'm like, "Uh I leave next week?"Also, getting my errands done this Wednesday AND bake some scones for my coworkers. I only have 2 days off before I leave so I must hustle. Since I still have my lingering Bronchitis, I need to pound them Airborne. I can't be sick for Brazil! NO!

Link Up with Melyssa and share your wishes! Woo.
