First, Friday night was a Wig Out, Pig Out party! Really random - on Cinco de Mayo, I met this lady at a Mexican food restaurant (the only decent one in Frankfurt) who is from Arlington and went to my junior high AND my high school! She's super sweet and invited Brian and me to her and her husband's gorgeous home for a wig party! It was a lot of fun to meet new people and wear goofy wigs. And, the food was delicious!!
Brian was such a good sport! I had borrowed a wig from a co-worker - I was a brunette for the evening. But Brian didn't have a wig to wear. When we arrived at the party, Lynn immediately offered up her extra wig - a hot pink bob wig - which Brian rocked and had a great time doing it!
After a few hours of wearing the hot pink wig, Brian decided to try on another "wig". This one was for his face : )
On Saturday, I packed a picnic lunch, and Brian drove us all around the Taunus region on the motorcycle. Taunus is very hill-y and green, and the roads are so fun on the bike! They're nice back-country roads that go through beautiful wooded areas. We rode to the top of one of the hills and had a picnic lunch there. It was a perfect, relaxing Saturday! I'm just mad that I forgot the camera again! I swear I'll remember it on our next bike trip.
On Sunday, it was Bier Bike time : ) We met up with 16 of our friends on Sunday afternoon and made our way to the southern part of Frankfurt to pick up our wheels for the afternoon. Check this thing out!
It's a bar, complete with a beer tap, but it's a bicycle! All of the "bar stools" have pedals, and then a person from the company steers the bike all around Frankfurt!! It was such a fun time, and we had perfect weather for it! It's hilarious to ride through the city - random strangers stare and laugh, toast (like, "cheers!") with you, and take tons of pictures! The bike also comes with a stereo, so we played all kinds of music that we just sang along with the entire time. It was a blast!
Christine, the bier bike bar tender!

Check out our driver - she was one tough lookin' cookie! She only hit the curb once, though! haha!
Alexis and me
So we ran into a little problem while riding around - we drank all of the beer! Brian to the rescue! He jumped off of the bike and bought 2 six packs. Then, he SPRINTED to catch up with us - in flip flops!!
"I'll be right back!"
As we arrived back at our starting point, we came upon a group of Italians celebrating a bachelor party! They were hilarious! Only a couple of them could speak English, so they were explaining all of the traditions of the party to us. One - the bachelor had a stump chained to his left foot. As you can see in the picture below, the stump had his fiance's name on it! Hilarious. Then, he was selling shots to try to raise money "because the woman loves to shop". He was also trying to raise money by selling pieces of his pants - if you paid him, you could cut out a piece of his jeans. And you could pay to wax any part of his body (they had all of the waxing supplies with them), and then you could sign his bare skin! hahaha

After the bike ride, it was time for some food! We all went to eat at one of my favorite German restaurants, and we continued to enjoy the great weather outside in their beer garden!
Love this girl!
When the food arrived, it felt like Thanksgiving! Check out that platter of meat
After such a fun-filled weekend, Brian and I relaxed on Monday and enjoyed some time at the park. I'd say it was a successful weekend!
