This weekend my best friend from home, Liv, visited from Paris where she's studying abroad. Instead of visiting many touristy stops, we spent the weekend eating mostly. Some of the great dishes we enjoyed include: falafel kebab (twice), tomato and basil spaghetti (best I've ever had), caper and garlic pizza, sundried tomato and mozzarella paninis, broccoli and feta pizza (we made), pesto ravioli and balsamic green beans (we made this also), dark chocolate fondu fruit and chocolate canolis. The last two were from the Chocolate Festival, which we stopped by multiple times. We also visited a gigantic flea market across the river, shopped for saddle oxfords, saw a few live shows, and watched a bunch of Party Down.

If you write you and your loved one's initials on a lock and throw the key into the Arno River, you'll apparently stay happy forever.
Liv's flea market find: a beautiful 10 euro dress à la An Education.
Note: A lot of these were taken by Liv.
