Happy Weekend

July 26, 2015 / by Liz

Happy weekend you guys! I’m having a lovely Sunday catching up on some housework and blogging, and avoiding the cold (ish) rainy day out there! (Though I’m really not complaining, considering Newfoundland is experiencing Julyuary….!). Here are a few photos of the things that made me smile this week (please excuse excessive pet pics):

| Mmm… ice cream!|
1 - Ice Cream

| Layla’s best Boston buddy. Just havin’ a snooze. |
4 - Best Buds

| Date night at Le Triangle. Awesome food and craft beers – I’ll be going back! |
2 - Le Triangle

| Such a smart (and adorable) girl. She ate all her food, with the exception of the flea pill, the worm pill, and one suspect kibble. And then made this face when I told her she had to eat them. |
5 - Smart Dog

| Experimenting with cocktail recipes. |
3 - Cocktails

| What do you mean, it’s a “dog” bed? |
6 - Lori on Dog Bed

| this mean cat! |
7 - Helen
Signature FINAL

    Hi Liz! I found your blog through your husband who went to highschool with me! I am heading to Paris in Septemeber with my soon to be hubby for our honeymoon. I looked up this restaurant that you suggested and it is looks like something we would love! Do you have any other suggestions? We are only in Paris 3 days on our European Honeymoon so I’d like to have reataurants choosen ahead of time to maximize our time.

    Hello Heidi! Thanks so much for getting in touch – I love hearing from people :) And congratulations on your upcoming wedding, Paris is a lovely place for a honeymoon!
    If you like food, Paris is one of the most overwhelming cities… so much good food to choose from!! If I had to pick, my favourite restaurants are probably:
    * La Mangerie {7 rue de Jarente, 4th} – awesome tapas place, and they greet you with house-made aperitif when you arrive
    * Terroir Parisien {28 place de la Bourse, 2nd OR 20 rue Saint-Victor, 5th} – Amazing french food, on the fancier side
    * La Triangle {13 rue Jacques Louvel Tessier, 10th} – great menu that changes all the time, and microbrewery with delicious beers – plus, one of the owners is Canadian :)
    * Chez Tantine {51 rue Laugier, 17th} – a great brunch spot, but a little out of the way
    * La Caféotheque {50-52 rue de l’Hôtel de Ville, 4th} – more of a coffee house than a restaurant, but great if you really need a good cup of coffee (which can be hard to find!)
    * Les Enfants Perdus {9 rue des Récollets, 10th} – I’ve only been here for brunch (which is awesome), but I’ve heard it’s great for supper as well
    * Sawan Bistro Thaï {35 rue de Faidherbe, 11th} – Casual spot for great thai food, with cheap beer (also hard to find!)
    * Frenchie {5-6 rue du Nil, 2nd} – Super good food, set menu, but a little on the pricier side and can be hard to get a reservation
    * Ellsworth {34 rue de Richelieu, 1st} – Opened not too long ago, owned by the same people that own Verjus, but I actually like the food at Ellsworth better, and it’s a little more casual

    Also, ‘Paris by Mouth’ (www.parisbymouth.com) is a great food resource (in English!)

    Enjoy your time in Paris – let me know how it goes! :)
    xx Liz
