What I like about autumn

Summer hasn't been a great one so I'm excited that autumn is finally here. I really like hot summer days but even more I like spring and autum, when you can get out in a light jacket, when you can finally breath, it's not too hot but you still get some warm, sunny days and everything smells like winter's nearly here.

Here's what I like most about autumn:

Clothes are more cosy this time of the year and you can finally wear jackets (but only light ones ;-) ).

Nature is so full of all these lovely yellows, reds and browns.

Confession: I love rain. Especially when I'm inside. Or wearing wellies.

Hot drinks

Tea, hot chocolate, chai...

Just spending an entire day inside, reading a book or watching films.

So: hello, autumn! I've missed you! <3

I have watched some TV-shows during the last days and I want to share them with you, they have been pretty good.

First of all: New Girl. It's about Jess who moves into a flat with three guys after her boyfriend cheated on her. First they aren't very happy to have her there but after telling them that all her girlfriends are models she's allowed to move in. She's in a really bad mood, watching Dirty Dancing about five times each day, crying all the time but then they are starting to like her. And everybody will understand, she's just adorable, a bit crazy, makes up theme songs for herself and stuff all the time. It was only the first episode but I can't wait to see what's happening next.

Then: 2 Broke Girls. Max is a waitress in a diner in Brooklyn, she really needs but hates the job and shows everyone. When a new waitress, Caroline, is starting to work there she can't imagine her working there and makes fun of her all the time. All she's really crazy about is her (very hot) boyfriend.
Caroline used to be rich but has lost everything and needs to work now for the first time of her life. Curcumstances bring her to Brooklyn where she starts working at the diner. She doesn't seem to be very smart but kind of lovable and after a bad start the two girls seem to become friends. They have the idea to open a cupcake shop and decide to raise $250 000. This was also just the pilot but we'll see what's going to happen.

I also watched Mike&Molly, it's a show that started last year, the 2nd season is going to start in a few days. It's a funny show about Mike who's working as a policeman in Chicago and tries to lose a bit of weight. At "Overeaters Anonymous" he meets Molly (the adorable Melissa McCarthy, known from Gilmore Girls), who is a school teacher and has been overweight since her childhood. She lives with her mother who doesn't have any weight problems at all and isn't a big help for Molly's diet, and her sister who likes to party and smoke marijuana.
Molly likes Mike when she first sees him at the OA-meeting but it takes him a while to finally take her out. When Molly feels sick on the day of the date you can see this isn't going to go so well...
Mike&Molly is a funny show which is definately worth watching. Both, Melissa McCarthy and Billy Gardell are very funny and so is Molly's Mom. Her sister just fits in because she's the opposite of Molly and maybe I should also mention Mike's partner who gives a lot of dating tips but isn't as succesfull himself, he still lives with his grandmother. Most of the time they talk about women at a diner, Mike is always trying to stay on his diet but Samuel, the african waiter, doesn't make that easy...

That's all about the new shows I've been watching but another thing I have to mention is Ashton Kutcher in Two and a half men. I didn't know what to think when I first heard that Charlie Sheen wouldn't be on the show any longer and Ashton Kutcher will be the new star in it. But now after a lot of gossip and stuff I watched the first episode I think it is really good. Ashton aka Walden Schmidt is pretty funny and I'm excided to see what will happen...

Oh, and for all How I met your mother- Fans: I want to know who's getting married!!! Please tell me it's Robin!

Lovelybooks & allfreecrochet-givaway

I should really post something about lovelybooks today. It's a nice web page about books. You can create your own bookshelf with all the books you have read and want to read in the future. You can talk with others about your favourite books, authors and everything you love about reading. As I have been into books ever since I was able to read (and even before that) it's really a nice page for me and I spend a lot of time there. Every week they have nice givaways and stuff and very often they are looking for test readers of new books. All you have to do is sign in, leave comments about a specific subject and then, if you are lucky you get a free book and can talk to others while reading. I have been so lucky and won three books during the last days and now I'm just waiting for them to arrive. I'm all excited!
The next big event they're hosting is a 24-hour reading-marathon. It starts on October 2nd at 9am and ends at the same time October 3rd (it's a public holiday in Germany). I have to work on Sunday but I'm off Monday and I hope to join in and also blog about my experience and the books I have read...
I'll also blog about the books I've won when they are here.
That's all, I just wanted to tell you about it, one of my favourite pages on the internet (maybe I should do that more often, about my favourite blogs and all...).

Jenny xoxo

PS: Have a look at the nice givaway at . I hope I'll win this book, I NEED some new inspiration!

Holidays at home

Oh my, time is running, probably because I don't want it to. I'm still off work for one more week and I spent the last two weeks at my parents'. It has been great. I caught up with all the people I haven't seen in a while, went to some nice places and just had a good time. I'm pretty relaxed now, that's just what a holiday should look like, right? Unfortunately I didn 't get away really because I decided to save money for bigger travel plans next year and at first I was a bit sad but now I think it was the right decision. It was nice just to spend some time with the family and long missed friends. One of them had a baby six weeks ago and I was really glad to see her after a long time now and to meet the new baby girl.
I wasn't really productive while I was at home but it felt good just to relax and not having anything to do. I read a few books and really had some nice days. I went to Europa Park, I went swimming, I went to have a nice afternoon at the lake...
You see, I'm pretty happy. Yesterday I drove back to Cologne and I'm also glad to be back here now having another week off. Today I slept in, had a nice late breakfast, went for a run (after which I thought I have to die, I should just workout more...) and now I'll probably have just a nice evening at home. In the next days I hope to see some of the Cologne friends and enjoy the last days of my holidays.
That's it, nothing special but all really good ;-)
