Quick Vacation at My Other Grandparents’ House


I’ve been busy working on my CV (cutticulum vitae–European version of a resume)  and cover letter, researching job openings, and taking care of administrative chores to set myself up in France while staying at my maternal grandparents’ house, but I finally got the chance to go visit my other grandparents. I took  the opportunity to take a few pictures to show you their cute apartment and kitty =3

Speaking of the kitty... I found a cute little present when I entered my room! His name is Douxchat.

Douxchat was very sweet and played top model for me throughout my short stay.

He likes to take naps on my grandpa's desk...

... play on my grandma's piano...

... and have tea time in the living room with my grandparents!

And there you have it! A quick tour of my grandparents’ apartment as Douxchat sees it =]

Here Piggy, Piggy, Piggy! And a New Post on Trint!


Fresh pig, here I come! This weekend, my grandparents decided that they would like to take me to eat (super) fresh pig at a cute little farm. The thing was almost still alive when we ate it! They killed the poor piggy just a few hours earlier that same day and cooked it BBQ style (NOT with BBQ sauce mind you, this is France after all O=]) on a spit.

Check out the pictures!

Isn't that a good-looking pig?!

Here's a closer look

Besides pig, there were also delicious home-made terrines & rillettes.

Last but not least, here’s a picture of the beautiful farm where we ate.

There are Such CUTE Things in France!


I don’t have much to say about the last 2 days since I mostly ran around taking care of errands, but I DID go shopping today and I saw tons of cute stuff! I actually thought I would be bored since I was just going to follow my grandmother around because I didn’t need to buy anything, but I actually had fun. Here are my favorite findings =]

Aren't these adorable?!

Can you tell what these are from the picture? They’re animal earmuffs ^^ I found them at this really cute small shop where they sold bags, notepads and costume jewelry/hair accessories. I now know where to go if I’m ever invited to a costume party!

These are for Katie because she loves bunnies!

I saw this and immediately thought of my friend Katie–look Katie! Now you’re going to have to come visit me in France =]

And last but not least…

More bunnies!

Who knows what this is? Special prize for the first person who guesses correctly in the blog message box.

I’m going to a BBQ where we’re going to be roasting a live pig tonight  (=/ poor piggy…) so I’ll do my best to take some interesting pictures and keep all of you posted about my adventures in France.
