Five on Friday / Easter and Travel

Friday is here! Let's get right to it...

O N E Robert and I had a very low key and very nice Easter, just the two of us! We slept in way too late, cooked a fabulous brunch and celebrated our Risen Savior! We relaxed the rest of the day and ended with a night at the movies! It was such a sweet day with the husband, one filled with the utmost gratefulness for our God.

T W O Let's talk about traveling...my absolute favorite hobby, especially when it is with the husband. After the season is over, we are taking our end of the year trip! And we cannot wait. This year we are traveling to Barcelona, Paris and Amsterdam!! Have you visited one of these destinations?? Please give us all your tips and tricks! Especially for Barcelona and Amsterdam.We need suggestions on places to eat, what to see, etc...please help!

T H R E E Speaking of traveling...recently I have recapped my travel adventures including our Paris/ London Girl's Trip and my quick trip to Seattle! Visit my travel page here to see all our adventures, including tips and tricks for certain European cities!


F O U R During my flights to and from Seattle, I came across a new artist that I absolutely love! I might be way behind here but his name is George Ezra and his music is great...the perfect feel good music and his voice is perfection. My favorite so far is Budapest...definitely check his music out (if you haven't already).

F I V E Back to Easter for a quick sec. Roberto decided to snap this pic of me (with pajamas and bed head mind you) while I was trying to get the perfect "blogger brunch photo". It is a a little ridiculous but man...so fun! I really enjoy this whole blogging thing and all the craziness I do for it.


That's it for today! Now for the weekend, which will consist of plenty of relaxing, reading (obsessed with Liane Moriarty) and fingers crossed, lots of brunch. 

I hope you each have a wonderful weekend, Happy Friday!

  1. So glad that you guys had a nice, relaxed Easter! That brunch looks delicious (maybe it's because you were so diligent with your photo skills ;)
    I've been to Paris before but not the other two, altho I'd love to go to Amsterdam and Barcelona one day. You definitely have to go to Versailles! And of course the Eiffel Tower...duh! :)
    I hope you have a great weekend!!

  14. Visit the 9 streets area in Amsterdam. Lot of great boutiques and cute cafes. Bakers and Roasters is an awesome restaurant to go to. Brunch/Breakfast food all day and great mimosas :) Definitely do a canal boat tour, it is an amazing city to see from the water. I'm an expat living 20 minutes from Amsterdam so I've experienced a lot in that city!
