Our Baby Shower.

16. January, 2015

Med en drøy måned igjen til termin, var det klart for Baby Shower den 5. oktober! Gode venner, interessant (og veldig god!!) kake, masse mat og utrolig flotte gaver. Baby shower er ikke noe jeg er vant til, men jeg må si det var veldig fint å ha så mange tilstede for å feire vår lille venn som fremdeles var i magen! En stor takk (igjen) til Diane, Alex, Boris og Dave som arrangerte det hele.

With a bit more than a month before our due date, it was time for our Baby Shower on October 5th! Great friends, an interesting (and tasty!!) cake, lots of food and incredible gifts. Baby showers are not really part of the Norwegian tradition, but I have to say it was so touching to have so many come together to celebrate our little baby, even before he was born! A huge thanks (again) to Diane, Alex, Boris and Dave for making this happen.

The Rest of August.

I tillegg til at vi reiste rundt i Ungarn og feiret bryllup en siste gang, var også august måneden da vi fikk besøk fra Budapest, vi var innom CNE og begynte så smått å forberede oss på at babyen skulle komme!

Translation…
In addition to spending August travelling in Hungary and celebrating our wedding one last time, we also had visitors from Budapest come stay with us, we visited the CNE and made our very first baby preparations!

The Toronto Wedding.

9. January, 2015

Untitled

9. august var vi klare for den siste av de tre bryllupsfeiringene våre. Vi var hjemme igjen og hadde invitert vår aller nærmeste skare av Toronto-venner og familie til en av våre favorittrestauranter, La Palette. Siden været var så fint, ba vi alle komme hjem til oss før middagen, for en impromptu champagneresepsjon i hagen vår. Som prikken over i-en, tilbød B&D seg å spille for oss, helt perfekt! Det var også middagen på kvelden. Selv 6-måneder på vei, med uker på reisefot og to feiringer på baken, følte jeg meg fantastisk. Det ble en kjempefin dag og en verdig avslutning på en sommer som virkelig sto i kjærlighetens tegn.

On August 9, we were ready for the last of the wedding parties. We were back in Toronto, and excited to invite our closest TO friends and family to one of our favourite restaurants, La Palette. Since the weather was so nice, we had everyone come to our house first, for an impromptu garden reception. B&D graciously offered to play for us, and it was all just perfect! As was the dinner that night. Even at 6 months pregnant, with weeks of travelling and two celebrations behind us, I still felt amazing. It was just a perfectly happy and wonderful day, a great ending to an incredible summer, celebrating our love.

Back In Budapest.

8. January, 2015

IMG_0492

Vi returnerte fra Pecs til Budapest, og feiret en uke som nygifte ved å sjekke inn på New York Palace Hotel for noen dager. Vi må alltid innom den fantastisk fine kaféen som er tilknyttet hotellet når vi er i byen, og om du ikke har vært der, anbefales det virkelig! Da vi sjekket inn, fikk vi til alt overmål oppgradering til suite med privat balkong og fantastisk utsikt over byen. Ikke fritt for at vi helst ikke ville forlate rommet mens vi var der! Vi rakk allikevel å få med oss blant annet en tur ned Donau i solnedgang, samt en god del kaffe og vandring gatelangs blant imponerende arkitektur. Og så mat da, masse mat.

Translation…
We returned from Pecs to Budapest, and celebrated our one week anniversary by checking into the New York Palace Hotel for a few days. We always have to stop by the amazing café that belongs to the hotel whenever we’re in Budapest, and if you haven’t been, you really should go! As we were checking in, we got a surprise upgrade to a suite with a private balcony and a breathtaking view of the city. Let’s just say that leaving that room was pretty hard! However, we still managed to get in a sunset sail down the Danube, plus a whole lot of coffee and wandering around among the impressive buildings. Oh, and food. Lots of food.

The Budapest Wedding Dinner.

7. January, 2015

IMG_9914

I Budapest hadde vi invitert Ms pappa med følge, samt to av hans beste venner fra oppveksten til middag langs Donaus bredd. Et litt mindre kalas altså, men det gjorde vi mer enn nok opp for i mengde mat vi fortærte!

Translation…
In Budapest we had invited M’s dad and significant other, along with two of his best friends from growing up, to a dinner on the shores of the Danube. What the party lacked in size we more than made up for in the amount of food we ate!
