date night, family, weekend

{Happy Friday!}

Happy, happy Friday! I am so excited it’s the weekend! It’s supposed to be a rainy one here in Amsterdam, but that’s okay because I’ve got lots to do inside in anticipation for my Mom’s arrival on MONDAY. I can hardly believe I’ll be greeting her at the airport so soon! We are going to have such an amazing time. She’ll be here for two weeks, and next weekend we’re jetting off to Barcelona for the long Easter weekend.
Hopefully I can find some time for something other than cleaning. If I had it my way this weekend I would…
+stay in for friday date night. make this cocktail and watch The Descendants .
+buy fresh flowers from our neighborhood market
+check out the COS store in the 9 Streets 
+browse all the colorful goodies at Kitsch Kitchen 
+make something yummy for breakfast. Maybe this

  1. Espero que disfrutes de tu fin de semana aquí en Barcelona!! Hoy hemos tenido temperaturas de 27 grados!!! UF!! que calor!!

    Buen fin de semana,


  2. Hi! I love your blog! I was wondering if you and your husband are trying to learn Dutch ( and if yes, do you like the language? )

    Have fun with your mom!

  3. Potato Peel Society book is GREAT- and made me want to go to the Channel Islands even more! I'm so excited for you about your mom coming- I love sharing where we live with family, plus I inevitably see it through their eyes and discover something new to me every time!
    Are you still taking her to Keukenhof? (I asked you about Amsterdam recommendations on your Formspring a while ago and you mentioned it) I can't wait to see your pictures; I'm already so excited we'll be there in 3 weeks!! Have a great time in Barcelona, we loved it!

  4. Ohhhh it's always so exciting when someone from home comes visit you when you live abroad. Have a great time and hope your mom enjoys both amsterdam and barcelona.

  5. hi there! i am a horrible friend, i realized i never wrote back to you about Cirque de Soleil…so this looks like a pretty good place to do so.

    It was good, I had never been to a show before, but the people who had said this was a good one. (It's called “Corteo”.

    I was really, really impressed…the music was good & the talent was excellent. I went with customers, so it was a work event.

    If I had paid for my own tickets, I certainly would not have been disappointed, but I'm not sure if I would be dying to go back, you know what I mean? So moral of the story: it's a really good show, it would be worth it for the experience, but it wasn't “the best ever!” kind of thing, in my opinion.

    Anyway, hope this helps…have SO MUCH FUN with your mom in town, I'm jealous!!
