Germany photos! And Torsten's adorableness.

OK, I uploaded our photos from Germany and in the process discovered quite a few other photos that we never pulled off the memory card. So, today will be a photo post. But first, I have to make two notes about the liquid diet. One, this morning I had lost another three pounds. So that brings my two-day total to nine pounds. It sounds like a lot, and it is a lot, but on the other hand, this diet is essentially anorexia--all I'm allowed to eat is broth, sugar-free Jell-O, and sugar-free popsicles. So it SHOULD be effective, but it's not exactly healthy.

And two, this liquid diet has caused Torsten to display his sweetness in a strange little way. Perhaps nobody else will think this is sweet, but I think it's adorable. Last night he needed to eat dinner, but we didn't really have food in the house, since we hadn't done a post-vacation grocery store trip yet. So he went to Whole Foods to pick something up, and I told him that I couldn't go with him because I was too hungry. So, he went by himself.

When he came back, he had intentionally purchased something that he knew I would think was gross--spicy salmon burgers with red peppers (peppers are my least favorite food ever). And then we ate dinner together, him with his burger and me with my broth, and the whole time we were eating he kept telling me how gross his burger was and how much I would hate it.

It sounds ridiculous, I know, but how sweet is that? And touching and thoughtful and generally adorable? No? Am I the only one who thinks so?

Anyway, photos! I put all the photos that we took around Denver in April in a set on Flickr, and then all the Germany photos in a different set. Some highlights, mostly from the German wine country:

  11. Awww that is adorable. My fiance would probably eat my favorite food while pointing and laughing at me as I cried over my broth.

  12. You're right; that IS pretty adorable. Of course, it was also a win-win for him, because presumably he got a dinner he enjoyed but wouldn't ordinarily get to eat at home because you don't like it. But we won't focus on that part. :-)

  13. That is cute, so both of you still get to have dinner together but you wont be tempted EVER with his food. LOL. If I had a husband someday and I wanna diet, I'd prefer he ate something I'd hate.

    But thank god guys love ribs and beefs and I happen to hate them equally. Not even because they're fattening and I love them. It's like a blessing in disguise.
