Why oh why must weekends be so short! Oh but it was such a good one--a street market Saturday, a sunny Sunday and drinks and banter with friends the entire weekend...
*I picked up a burrito for Christian and I from Tomatillo...a Mexican place here in Amsterdam with the most delicious tomatillo-habanero salsa in town and possibly in all of Europe! Right before escaping indoors for pure burrito annihilation, I got a little cuddle from the neighbor's gigantor-cat!
*I came home with an obscene amount of fruit, veggies and herbs from the street market on Saturday morning...still don't know what to do with that butternut squash...hmmmm...any ideas?
*We met up with a good friend of mine for drinking beers in the sun in Rembrandtplein, hopped off to a garden party at my boss' house complete with Mediterranean appetizers, cocktails and showing off the mystery-Dutch-fiance-of-mine to my coworkers ;). Then Christian and I made a split second decision to grab a late-night bite at Nam Kee before we went to a friend's house party by Westerpark...seriously such a fun Saturday!
*To cure Saturday night's festivities, we treated ourselves to brunch and a cozy wander through the canals...and guess what...it was a BEAUTIFUL sunny day!! And the best way to cap off the weekend was plopping a beanbag on the balcony, grabbing a pillow, playing some good tunes and soaking up as many rays as possible. I'm convinced that laying outside on a sunny day soothes the soul...that and chocolate...anyway, hope yours was a delightful as ours!
Dear sunshine, I'm so happy you graced us with your presence! And dear weekend, you were awesome :).
