~ MOM'S daily ~ #starkeMütter ~

This week is crunch week for the house. Saturday is THE. MOVING. DAY.!!!! 

My wonderful hubby is working very hard to get everything ready on his end and I've been packing, packing, packing on this end {and doing some unpacking in the new house!}! It does seem quite endless and the chaos that comes with packing is starting to drive me nuts. But there is a flicker of light at the end of this seemingly endless tunnel. I cannot believe our journey has taken us this far and that we'll be moving and living in the house we've been planning for almost two years! Craziness! 
It's amazing how much stuff a household has!
A few weeks ago, I applied with NUK to be a tester of their products and report on my blog. I was super excited, when I got an email from them saying they enjoyed my blog and would love to have me on their team of blogging moms! 

Today, I'll be introducing the first product they sent me.

MOM'S daily (click to read more - all in German though) is an orange and passion fruit juice drink filled with vitamins and minerals that busy moms need. I'm a HUGE juice-aholic. I drink juice for every breakfast and I was excited to try their vitamin-mineral-juice to help me through the stressful and long days of packing. At first, I was little bit disappointed with the initial taste of it. I was imagining something extremely delicious and don't get me wrong, it is very good, but maybe the orange flavor was a bit overpowering for me. I'm not always a huge fan of the flavor orange. HOWEVER, I am still excited to drink it every morning and I'm glad I have three more left in the fridge for the next few days. I feel like the price is a bit steep for a drink of this size. I'm not sure I would buy it again, unless it was on sale.

I really like how NUK is broadening out and coming up with a product for moms. It felt nice for them to recognize just how much moms do. They list how many hours of sleep a mom looses, how much breast milk a mom produces, how many calories a nursing mom burns, how many kilometers a mom walks to put a crying baby back to sleep, and how many diapers a mom changes. I appreciate them realizing how strong moms are. #starkeMütter #strongmoms

Thanks, NUK, for encouraging moms! Well done!

NUK Magic Cup

Getting your little one to drink is not an easy task and switching from a bottle to sippy cups and then normal cups can be challenging. NUK has designed a new sippy cup. Finally a sippy cup that doesn't have little parts to wash! Check out what it's made out of:  The cup has three parts. A silicone part (the pink one) and two plastic parts.  Just pop the pink part into the turquoise ring and then screw it on the cup - DONE! Doesn't get much easier than that. And it doesn't matter where your little one puts their mouth, they can drink from it from any side!  It's a perfect fit for little hands. Although the tipping to actually drink is still a bit tricky and needs a little help from bigger hands, but once your little one is bigger this shouldn't be a problem anymore.  They say it's leak proof, which for the most part it is, however after turning over like the picture above, there is a little bit of water, but not much. And when it gets tossed on the floor, then…

Welcoming strangers into my home

For 16 weeks now, we have had a young refugee couple from Syria living with us. They have been married a little over a year and for the majority of that time have been separated from each other, since he made the journey to Austria alone and got everything in order so that she could come legally.
 Let me backtrack a bit and tell you how it all started. As the refugee crisis really started to explode here, facebook was buzzing with articles, videos, pictures, etc. of the situation. I read a lot. I saw a lot. I was moved. I was troubled. But what could I do? I had a three year old and one year old at home.
 ... I could teach some German. But when? ... I could donate clothes and other items that were needed. But that didn't seem like enough. ... I could give money. But I wanted something more tangible. 
I would put my youngest to bed and during those days, she needed lots of TLC in order to get to sleep. I kept thinking about the refugees and how they didn't have a home. I kept hea…


We've been living in our wonderful new house for almost 5 months now! Crazy! At times, it still doesn't feel real and other times, it seems like our apartment life was FOREVER ago.

Our big wish and prayer for our house was that it would be a place where people would...
... feel at home ... ... be pointed to Christ ... ... be encouraged ...  ... feel loved and accepted ...
When I came across a study on Hospitality by She Reads Truth, I knew it was one I wanted to do. Felix and I love inviting people into our home, talking and playing games with them. I love cooking and baking. I was curious what would be shared in the study on Hospitality and so far I have not been disappointed. I may have only done three days so far, but I have already been pushed and given some thoughts to think on ... here are two quotes from it or inspired by the study that I wanted to share:

--- Isn’t that true hospitality? Putting yourself in their place, loving them for who they are, and inviting them into t…
