Saturday was pretty exciting day around the Frau's Haus! First thing in the morning I always boot up the computer, checking my email and I have say I was over whelmed. You might want to sit down for this.... I recieved three very important emails....apparently I may have won the UK lottery (OMG !) and the Irish lottery (double OMG!!) and then this nice man from Africa has 10 million dollars he wants to wire transfer to my account and I get to keep 35% can you believe it! It was weird how it all show up in my spam file but that happens all the time with emails!! Needless to say I was freaking I mean I'm RICH, what to do first.....I hate to admit my first thoughts were a bit selfish, you know had thoughts of nip and tuck etc..than of coarse my husband can quit his job and we can move back to Utah. I was almost dizzy from the excitement.

But with some thought I decided to delete the winning info I just was really worried about this sudden wealth...how would it change us? I just couldn't risk it! Sorry Honey get to the office before your late!

Later that night we had a Winter Dinner for my Daughter's school at the nicest hotel in Bremen, Park Hotel. It's a gorgeous luxurious hotel and was a beautiful setting for a dinner/fundraiser. I was really excited, I mean my day had started so well with the emails and all. I knew this was THEE event of the year for the school so I search high and low for a nice appropriate outfit for such event. First things first European sizes are not and I repeat not the same as American just want to make it clear. After many trips to the city and many dressing room battles and a lot of foul language I found an outfit that would do. I was a bit uncomfortable in my holiday out fit, I was all geared up in my SPANX and actually added the control top pantyhose as well! Now that I've turned away the winnings from the lottery my only option is SPANX x2.
I thought I was going to die....I sat there at the table listening to conversation and all along thinking to my self ...I  wonder if anyone has died from SPANX cutting off air flow? And thoughts of OMG I really have to pee but how can I Un-Spanx myself than what? The rest of the night was a blur due to low oxygen levels in my brain. I think I had fun, I didn't win anything which was weird considering the luck my day started out with. Oh well! There's always this weeks SPAM fortunes to look forward too!

We also celebrated our little German Christmas. My family gave me Wii Fit (woot, woot) So maybe I will lose weight and not die by Spanx death! And I also received a gorgeous Santa Balance toy.



Hope your weekend was just has Lucky as mine!

Oh my, death by Spanx doesn't sound like fun at all! Hope you were able to recover from the loss of oxygen to the brain. :P

Hey you! Ok one cup of butter over here is 225 grams so 3/4 would be 200 or a little less.

Kwana said...

Congrats on the Wii and you are so funny I have had nights like that where the Spanx have ended up in my little evening bag. Strange how such a small garment can stretch across my butt hence the torture.

Those spanx will kill ya every time, but they sure do the job!

honeypiehorse said...

Oh, I know, I hate shopping over here. German women don't have hips until they turn 50.

lytha said...

I head over into germany and shop at Ulla Popken and even that is hard..Im just shaped wrong..lol

Ann said...

Congrats! Think of how many suitcases full of goodies you could bring back if you cashed in on all those winnings!

Ina in Alaska said...

What a riot, Frau! My "go to" outfit is always the black pants with the black top that skims ever so fashionably over the hips, followed by lots of bling! (or pearls) (or both). Comfy, stylish. You are so funny. PS that hotel is DEEE LUX!!! Hope you took some pictures?? xoxo

Traci said...

I can't believe that you walked away from those emails! They are so obviously genuine and would change your life -- wink. Wink.

You are going to love Wii Fit. It is terrific. I love your description of Spanx. If you have never read the second Bridget Jones book "The Edge of Reason" (the film did it NO justice) -- there is a hilarious scene involving her and a wayward Spanx at a fancy dress event.

Deidra said...

Hey! I thought I was the one who got to keep the 35% from that guy from Africa! ;)

You are hilarious!

preppyplayer said...

I love my Spanx!
As for your wealth, can I have some for all the Viagra offers that show up in my spam?
Then I can send some viagra to the guy in Nigeria so he will be too busy ( tiger woods style) to email me about his woes regarding the millions he needs to send to MY bank account...

SamiJoe said...

For what it's worth, i too won the African millionaires lottery. I also deleted it. Were in it together now sista!!

OMG! I win the lottery ever single day! Usually it's those nice generous Nigerians that want to send me money. You know the ones? But my all time favorite phishing scheme is one I got recently that was contacting me as an anti-fraud super secure phishing scheme. How stupid do they think we Americans are?

I don't have any Spanx, but I've worn "foundations" in my day. Sounds like you were one undergarment away from a tourniquet! Careful woman! You don't want to end up with the lower half of your body amputated!

Funny post!

PS: I have a Wii Fit. It's fun.

Nancy Campbell said...

Too funny! Those Spanx will do the job, as long as you just stand and look pretty.

Bobbi said...

I can't believe how lucky you were! All that money in just one day!

I've never worn Spanx but I may have to soon if I don't start watching what I eat. Maybe I'll just get a Wii too!

Debra said...

So funny! Love the part about the Spanx. Tooo funny. Congrats on the almost win.

Yvonne said...

Haha, Spanx AND control top pantyhose! Were you on suicide watch? My Spanx have a peepee hole. Yours don't? I'd have to cut one if they didn't. My bladder would never make it through an event of any kind!
Let us all know how the Wii thing works out, will ya?

Oh, thanks for the compliments. How bout you post some more holiday pics? I don't even know if the Santa and sleigh are even REALLY yours!!!!

Spanx? No can do for me. I haven't even worn pantyhose in God knows how long.
