I'm crawling into bed in Amsterdam as these four board a plane in PDX.  We will all reunite mid morning a Paris.  Can't wait!

A follow up, on the UO store in AMS

Well, for some reason I went back in...(remember my last visit??).  I didn't buy any clothes, but it was a better experience.  I LOL'd when I saw these:

And then smiled when I saw my friend MS post about them here.   I guess great minds moms think alike.

More Barca Pix

A few more pix from our trip to Barca. A little piece of my heart is still there, on the roof.  

More Visitors!

Our visitors seem to come in waves.  Last fall we were booked solid, felt like we were running a B&B.    Things slowed down through the winter, (which worked out well since we were all about the alps).   But spring is here and it seems like everyone is coming to Amsterdam, so fun!  We were pretty excited about the visitors we've had this past week.

People like Bey and Jay, with Blue Ivy of course.

 Damn Bey, I wish I looked half this cool on my velo.  You so cool.
And then yesterday B.O. dropped in (by heli) to my neighborhood for a quick Rijks Museum meeting.  I totally would have gone to say hi, but it feels like I was just standing there in front of Rembrandt's De Nachtwacht with Annie.

So, the past week has been a busy one, hosting these fabulous people. But of course we are most excited to welcome some PDX besties on Monday!!!!

Funny Confession #276

Pro Tip

If you ever take a test designed to confirm that you are fluent in French, you should not do any of this.  Instead, you should probably just be fluent in French.

I will find out for sure in 3 weeks...but I'm pretty certain yesterday's effort was a humbling failure.

La Fete is on hold...indefinitely.

Tasty Ballz

The "American" aisle continues to be just so embarrassing.  Voila, the newest edition to the offering: Tasty Cheese Ballz.

Lady Gaga of Design

They say Marcel Wanders is the Lady GaGa of Design.  He is also Dutch, and therefor a local hero around these parts.  Needless to say, there is no shortage of excitement about his current exhibit at the Stadelijk.  

I was able to check it out a few weeks ago - or maybe it was just last week...time is flying by...anyhow, it was pretty cool. 

Of course I then had to get to Moooi as well, which I didn't get to back in feb, and it was pretty awesome too.  Maybe I fell in love with the vase below.  Maybe I can't stop thinking about how much I need want need want it.  

Maybe MW left this little note at Moooi just for me?  He may as well have written "buy yourself that damn vase girl", ya know?  

And maybe I have re-arranged a brunch location with girlfriends this week, to continue my MW crush by dining at the Bluespoon (his restaurant in his hotel - yes, the Andaz, which I already posted about months ago).
