Weekend Bits

We had a great (and busy!) weekend - we were hardly at home, and the weather was so schizophrenic we never knew whether to take our umbrellas or our sunglasses out with us, but we lucked out and only got caught in one downpour while running across town. We braved the Saturday morning IKEA crowds with our buddy Robbie to help him furnish his new bachelor pad (and bought ourselves a new bed, too), then feasted on meatballs for lunch (obviously). The rest of the weekend was spent with my aunt and uncle who were visiting Brussels after a weeklong excursion through the Netherlands... we showed them around town, ate a couple positively delicious meals (you know, at the kinds of restaurants a couple of broke newlyweds living the student life only dream of dining at), popped by a few chocolate shops and then sent them back to Chicago a few kilos heavier and (hopefully) happier after a relaxing European gettaway.

meatballs. frites. lingonberries.

the most amazing apple tart we brought back from the french bakery PAUL for dessert

It was so nice to spend some time with my family and catch up with them - we had a lot of laughs and a lot of fun and look forward to the next time we'll all be reunited again. 

Happy Monday! Have a wonderful week... :)
