in blog-land,link-up,the friday list

Alright team, here.we.go.  Today marks the first day of The Month Of Parents

een.  The next time I’ll be at my apartment, it will be with my parents.  They fly in late afternoon, and I can’t wait to pick them up at the airport!  {And then next time I’ll be at my apartment without parents, will be in June.}

twee.  My parents have never been to Amsterdam before, so we will be doing all the touristy things & I am actually secretly REALLY EXCITED because the luster hasn’t worn off for me yet.   

drie.  Then we’ll be driving down to Switzerland to visit family.  Family we have never met, but are related to through my great grandfather on my dad’s side.  He {my great grandfather} had siblings, who had children…that still live in Switzerland, and own the family house the he {my great grandfather} grew up in.  Really looking forward to connecting with them & seeing the house where my ancestors lived.

vier.  And then, PAB’s parents arrive!  They have the luxury of jetting all over Europe for three weeks, since Dr. B has officially retired as of earlier this month. 

vijf.  The great thing about “jetting all of Europe” is tagging along – PAB & I are joining them for a weekend in Paris later this month.  {It’s ok, you can be jealous. }

zes.  The other great thing about having parents in town is the food.  I mean, we get to go to tasty places all around the city for delicious meals.  I’m really excited to go here tonight {per the recommendation of my amazing girlfriends}.  And here & here & here on other nights.

zeven.   Oh, and martinis!  The martinis.  My parents drink gin martinis…and I must say, PAB & I enjoy these now as well.  But…they just taste better when in the company of my parents.

acht.  I’m going crazy with last minute things to do, work-related & parents-arriving-related…so this list is ending here!
