Waffles and fries.

You guys, this has been a doozy of a week.

First, we made a somewhat big announcement last Thursday. Also, today is my last day at my current job. (I know, I know, Justine changes jobs like most people change their Brita filters…moving on.) ALSO, we’re getting the keys for our new apartment this week.

All of that would have been enough to solidify a super busy week. And then two days ago my new job called and asked if I would be okay with them sending me to Belgium for job training. Sunday. As in, six days later. HA! Um…sure?


So now I can add “visit new country” to my March to-do list. Who knew?

SO anyway…have any of you ever been to Brussels? What should I do while I’m there?

  1. I went in December and had a fantastic time! Frites from Cafe Georgette were perfect and amazing! I went to almost every chocolate shop…Elisabeth is adorable, Neuhaus is in NY but I loved their speculoos truffle, Wittamer for speculoos cookies, Pierre Marcolini for fancy chocolates, Mary has really good truffles. Go to Maison Dandoy for the very best gaufre you’ll ever have (sit upstairs if you can)…we went there twice in three days. For dinner, we loved 9 Et Voisins!

  2. I just went to Brussels for the first time last summer. It was amazing. I was 5 months pregnant, so I really couldn’t try much of the beers aside from a few sips here and there. The waffles are amazing (you’ll never have another one in the US, EVER) and chocolate stores give out so many free samples! 🙂 Walking around the different streets in the city is entertainment in itself and so is there farmer’s markets. Belgians are really nice, so I think you’ll have a great time!
    Congratulations on the baby, too!
