Take one Canadian girl in les Alpes.
Add the ups & downs of living in France.

Les Scènes du Week-end {32}

Friday night dinner with friends who we hadn't seen in ages
Saturday spent relaxing & eating yet another galette des rois
Sunday hanging out with ma nièce & mon neveu  
pretty much a perfect weekend.

Apéro avec les filles... I was so happy to see them!
{They're sisters... can you tell?}
Our hosts, Valentine & Guillaume, had set a lovely table, n'est-ce pas ?
Each guest got a party favour... a Christmas-themed chocolate!
Well into the evening, Guillaume brought out apparently the only French vodka that exists.
I did NOT drink French vodka.  But I did laugh a lot anyway.
For dessert after Saturday lunch, my belle-mère made a galette de rois...
Didn't it turn out lovely?
Sunday afternoon, FQ "read" to his nephew & niece.
{By "read", I mean "showed them silly ads involving cats on the iPhone".}
Speaking of silly...
Am I really putting this image of myself out on the Internet?
So there are my ten photos of the weekend.
And thank goodness for that.

Because you know what?

After taking pictures of us silly girls wearing that silly book,
things got totally crazy.

We had an impromptu dance party avec les enfants 
in my parents-in-law's living room.

Strobe lights
Shakira tunes sung by Alvin & The Chipmunks
bunny-ears, blonde wigs & sunglasses
the most fun Sunday afternoon I've had in a long time.

What did you say?
Pardon ?
Ah, you think I'm going to end this post 
with a photo of the dance party?
Mais non !
{I've got to keep un peu de mystère on the blog, non ?}


  1. Oooh, this party looks like so much fun!
    By the way, I'm throwing a party tonight, inspired by a comment you made on my blog ;) I'll be posting about it later this week.

  2. Hi EJ! It was super fun.
    I'm sure yours will be too! Are you doing the CDN/AUS party mix? Please say yes!!!
    Looking forward to hearing all about it!
    Bon week-end !!!


  4. Hey everyone... try not to get too jealous... but I HAVE SEEN THE DANCE PARTY PHOTOS! Yep. And they are spectacular {and shiny} :)

    I wonder how you're going to top last weekend? I look forward to finding out on Monday!

  5. I love a good dance party! And since Grey Goose is my favorite vodka, add that to the mix and I would be one happy girl!

  6. @ Ana: if you twist my arm, I'll show you a dance party photo or two when you come over for lunch...

    @ Erin: this weekend has NOT involved a dance party. But it did involve quite a lot of "le shopping", so you can look forward to photos of my new accessories!

    @ Sara Louise: would you like me to invite you next time? Mais oui ? D'accord !
