Today was such a relaxing day! We didn’t have anything to do in the morning, so a full eight hours of sleep was gained! I treated myself to breakfast at “The Pancake Corner” in hopes of finally getting a taste of home, but of course I was wrong. Apparently when you order pancakes here in Amsterdam, you are really ordering a “Dutch Pancake”, which is a semi sweet crepe! It is very thin, and covers your entire plate. I was definitely looking forward to having a nice stack of round and fluffy cakes. Its ok though, I ordered an omelet with it, and that was amazing!
After breakfast, I did a little shopping. I bought a really cute skirt, a top, a hat, and a 12 set of earrings. Guess how much I paid for all of it… ONLY 35 BUCKS! I think I did pretty goodJ Especially considering the fact that I actually hate shopping, and I’m usually not so good at shopping “smart”.
Post shopping and traveling with my classmate to a few of her interviews, I had to make a very important call. It’s my dad’s birthday!!!! I called him on FaceTime at 9am their time, which is 4pm over here in Amsterdam. I just knew that he would still be asleep, but luckily he wanted to get up early anyway. The family was traveling to Chicago to celebrate and watch a live cubs game! I wish I could have been there with them. My brother sent me a ton of photos. I even got a little emotional. Lol
