amsterdam, restaurant, weekend

{Weekend Recap}

Is it Monday already? Just like the week, this past weekend flew. Here’s what were were up to:

+Friday I took my cousin to a cute little French restaurant along a canal for dinner. It was so fun catching up and partaking in some good ‘ol girl talk.

+Brunched at Le Pain Quotidien (and enjoyed the most delicious freshly made mint lemonade)

+Experienced the Anne Frank museum. It was incredibly powerful and heart wrenching. If you’re ever in Amsterdam I recommend you not miss it.

+Shopped around the Nine Streets.

+Took my cousin to our favorite Thai restaurant

+Discovered a new (adorable!!!) pastry/sandwich shop called “De Laatste Kruimel” (The Last Crumb) that is dangerously close to our apartment.

+Started Season 3 of Dexter. 

+Met our downstairs neighbor who had us over for drinks. She’s super sweet and she gave us a bunch of restaurant suggestions we can’t wait to try!

+Had dinner with a bunch of coworkers who are in town from the States. You have no idea how comforting it is to have them all here. I miss their familiar faces!

What did you do this weekend? Do you feel like you need another day to recover like me?

  1. I love the top right picture! Is it edited in Instagram or another program?

    I did shopping in the Nine Little Streets too, I love those shops!!! Did you get anything good?

  2. Aww, we went to Ann Frank's house when we were in Amsterdam a couple of years ago. It was such a moving experience. It made her story much more real to me.

  3. of COURSE i need another day to recover! especially when sunday night is spent watching the Pats win. 🙂

    isn't the anne frank huis so impactful? ive been twice already.

    we are catching up on dexter too…we download tons of shows, any other good recommendations? {there's nothing like finding a great season to download over here, huh? i mean dutch tv just doesn't quite cut it.}


  4. Oh my gosh. I've always wanted to visit Amsterdam. It looks beautiful (checked out your post from last week. I would love to venture out and live outside of the US.


  5. Your weekend sounds amazing – I love walking around and discovering cute little cafes and shops which I've never seen before 🙂

    My bf is Akrikaans and Afrikaans is really similar to Dutch (although you probably already knew that!) – so I can understand all the words – exciting!


  6. Dexter is the best!

    Amsterdam is definitely on my list of places to visit, especially for the Anne Frank museum. I never read the Diary of Anne Frank as a student but I did finally read it when I taught 5th grade! It's such a compelling story!

  7. You are now the THIRD person I know to mention Thai Bird as their fave…I think 3's a charm and I need to finally check it out! I think I'll have to add De Laatste Kruimel to the list too while I'm at it! Haha we're on season 4 of Dexter…that show has been keeping us holed up indoors all nights of the week!

  8. So I may or may not have looked at your entire love story wedding and all – and fell in love!

    you are absolutely adorable and all of your photos are sensational!

    thank you so much for stopping by and leaving such sweet comments! it literally means the WORLD to me.

    i can't wait to read more posts by you 🙂
