I never thought I'd say it, but I have had my fill of antique-ing and junk digging. Whew. We have been to a LOT of second-hand shops in the last few days trying to make our new apartment a home. Check out this rainbow we saw at one shop!
After shopping on Saturday, Michael and Blanca took us to a friterie for mitraettes, these huge sandwiches with a big sausage that is then covered in french fries. Again, WHEW! The biggest, most unhealthy thing ever. Pretty good, though:)
On Sunday we went to Daisy's race, and Clay got to break in the camera. Belgian style, of course, which means wrapping it in a trash bag to keep the rain off :)
This picture is for my family so that they know that Stormie really isn't so bad afterall. Can you imagine how bad this dog must stink? It was so much bigger than the picture makes it seem.
This sign made us laugh today. Not many people put up a sign warning strangers that there dog is indeed VERY nice. No need to worry, just come on in. The dog will LOVE you. Not much of a theft deterrant.
After making some purchases, Michael and Clay had to unload it all onto the street- I was praying the whole time that a bus wouldn't come and tell us to move in French and we would have to just stand there looking American and confused.
Here's the table and chairs we bought for FIVE Euro! Take that Roundtop! (Can you tell I am sad that I missed the retreat?)
We also got a mirror and a little pink trunk (to use as a coffee table).
Here is Clay at his new desk. He loves it. That man loves having office space.
Here is Michael showing us how Belgians move in furniture- through the window! Later this week, we are going to try to get our bed and some big appliances up to the 2nd and 3rd story windows of our building. Apparently this is done all the time... not in America, therefore I am very nervous. What if our mattress swings through our downstairs neighbor's windows??
After shopping today, Blanca stopped at the bread machine- how wonderful!! Fresh bread in a vending machine!
And that is all for now :)
