Welcome to this week's {nifty thrifty sunday}!

First, let me apologize for having gone MIA over the past few weeks..

We traveled to the US over Christmas to visit the hubby's family and our friends and I thought I would still be able to post at least the weekly link party. Well.. turned out I was wrong. hehe
We were so busy with visiting everyone (and of course all the Christmas craziness), that I quickly decided to "unplug" myself and simply enjoy those three weeks away from work, my blog and the day-to-day routine here in Germany.

I hope y'all (can you tell we visited Texas?? ;) ) had a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones and a great start into the new year! Can you believe it's 2014?!

So in case you're still coming by, even after not being able to link up for the last few weeks, thank you SO SO much for making this party a party! ;)

Here are some of my favorites from last week's {nifty thrifty sunday}:

{1} Twigg Studios: Tiramisu Cake

    Welcome home! Seems everyone is pretty scarce in blogland still. Myself included. It’s nice to unplug!
