Featured Blog: TexaGermaNadian

Hello all! 
 

FTLOB Introduces:


I keep saying that our life three years ago would have made phenomenal reality TV. No script, real drama, and a better ending than Hollywood writers could have scribbled together.

I met my husband at in our apartment complex the week he moved to San Antonio. He saw me jogging my usual route and stalked me into the weight room. I jokingly told him I was 15, he recited "Old School" lines. That was all it took. We were inseparable.


I should have known that I owed him all this 'following him around the world business'. He came to visit me while I was working in Greece that summer, after only 2 months of knowing each other. I spent the rest of the summer with his family in Canada, and we moved back to San Antonio and in with each other after 6 months of dating. I think his exact words on moving in with each other were "To hell with it, let's just do it". What a romantic.


I realized right away that the hockey life is a series of ups and downs; both physically and emotionally. He was transferred to another team, in another state a week after we signed our apartment lease in Texas. But Wonder ManBoy that he is, he was determined to thrive no matter where he was. He led the league in scoring, won the championship, and we got married in Vegas three days later. The team was promised a trip to Vegas if they won, so with his coaches, teammates, and the Cup in tow, we said our vows in The Little White Chapel. And no, Elvis didn't marry us, but a Sammie Davis Jr. impersonator was our wedding photog. It was so perfect.


Reality TV gold, don't ya think?

Almost three years later, he is playing hockey in Germany and we are both making a life here for ourselves. My friends think I live a rock star lifestyle, traveling the world, seeing the sights in Europe and living out a very non 9-5 life. While I am alright with them thinking, it is quite a stretch from the truth. Day to day life becomes monotonous in any country, but we do our best to make the most out of time here and everywhere else we are.


I bitch, I complain, I am over-joyed, underwhelmed, bored, annoyed, entertained but contempt. And happy, like stupid happy.


Come have a glimpse into my sarcastic take on life in a foreign country.

Thanks for being here. Stay tuned for more great features. Enjoy the day!
