La Winstub in Metz, France

Since Christmas, Baby Girl has been staying with my niece in the countryside. I can’t wait for her to come back this weekend, but I also enjoy this time where it’s just the Husband and I. Well, not really just us because there’s also work, but you know what I mean. I don’t have to worry about picking Baby Girl up from school, or prepare our meals at the proper time, and think of activities to occupy her. I might be criticized for saying this, but as much as I love my daughter, I do feel the need to take a break for myself and for my couple. I’m aware that I’m super lucky because my family is not too far away and they love having her with them and vice versa. When Baby Girl comes back home, I feel like I’ve been given a breath of fresh air and I feel ready to be a productive mother again.

Pizzeria Carissimi in Metz, France

 

I’ve been craving a lot of things lately – Spaghetti with Mussels, Pizza, … Oh, come to think of it, I’ve been missing good Italian dishes I guess. Anyways, Baby Girl and I made plans of hanging out in the city center today. Getting my eyebrows done, lunch at a restaurant, meeting up with a friend for coffee, picking my new glasses, a little shopping, and just happily walking in the streets of Metz center.

L’Eveil in Metz, France

Sadly, I haven’t been eating out for a while. It’s a pity though because I love eating out! But I haven’t had time, work was in the way, or a question of budget too! Anyways, I was having a quick drink with friends after work the other evening when I walked by the restaurant, L’Eveil in Metz, France. I was in a hurry to go home to be with Baby Girl, but I couldn’t help but think about the time we had dinner there.

Arita Restaurant in Metz, France

Same time last year, the Husband and I had lunch for the first and only time at the Korean-Japanese restaurant, Arita in Metz, France. I’d love to say that the Husband and I are as happy as we were in May 2017, but I’m not so sure anymore. After spending a couple of days together this week, with no fights, we had a major one this morning which ended in tears. The worst part was Baby Girl storming to her room in tears asking for me to comfort her. Talk about ending the week with a bang! The Husband and I argue all the time, but lately when we fight, the words are quite violent. I hate it, but I don’t know what to do.

One more month and it’s Baby Girl’s first communion. I am divided in 3 parts. One part just wants it all to be done with, another part is very excited for D-Day, and the last part is freaked out about not having enough time to finish it all.

Doha, Qatar 2016 – The Villaggio Mall and the Landmark Shopping Mall (Qatar 2016 Series #6)

As a teenage girl, one of my weekend activity was « malling with my friends ». As we got older, we preferred going on road trips, going to the beach, and having parties, but I’ll never forget that part of my life where I would get all excited about meeting my friends (and boys …. ssshh!) at the mall. It’s funny because we wouldn’t even shop for stuff, we just liked walking in circles around the mall. Oh and the drama – we loved that a lot too!

Casa Ricci in Metz, France

As promised in the previous post (click here to read it), today’s post will be about the Italian restaurant, Casa Ricci in Metz, France.

I’ve been hearing about this restaurant for as long as I can remember. My trainees are always telling to try it and I always reply sheepishly that I will one day. I’m so glad that I can finally say that I did and most importantly that I enjoyed it! 🙂
