Lazy Saturday at the Louvre

I spent yesterday at the Louvre and had such an amazing time- it's been literally almost TEN years since I first visited the museum, which is crazy, and it was a wonderful trip.

It made me want to go back more often, and I think I just might....

The weather continues to be absolutely gorgeous so it was almost a shame to spend the Saturday inside...

Here are a few of the highlights of what I saw, without overwhelming you with photos. Enjoy!

Just wanted to keep you all up to date!

Although I am not going to post exactly where I will be working on the blog (see who recently got fired from her job and went through extensive legal proceedings because of her mention of her employer on her blog) because in France you can never be too careful about this stuff......but let me just say that I am sooooo excited! It's from late April to late October, a HUGE American company, a marketing job, they hire Americans, and I will be SO thrilled to be getting a discount on their products!!!!

Email me to find out the company- I am so glad the search is over!

New Space Invaders

The Oscar the Grouch one is probably my favorite of all time!!!! I found him over by Les Halles, near the HUGE crazy mall that I tell everyone about. :)
P.S. I recently discovered that there are TONS of Sesame Street clips on YouTube. I have been having a FIELD DAY watching some of the old favorites! SO awesome!

Walking in Paris

The weather has been absolutely gorgeous again (although borderline too-hot) and I have started trying to walk EVERYWHERE.
Not only is the scenery amazing, but I am enjoying learning my way around town ABOVE ground and out of the metro, and I have been enjoying the exercise too!

The other day I decided to walk to the movies- about 45 minutes away, and the view was gorgeous.

Just thought I would share some of what I see....

Some scenes from Pere Lachaise

I finally took the time to visit the beautiful Pere Lachaise cemetery in the 20th arrondissement in's well-known for being a place where famous Parisians are buried but it's also where Jim Morrison from the Doors is laid to rest.

The whole thing was absolutely gorgeous and the dark rain clouds that were looming over the city just made the setting even more perfect.

I took a TON of photos but here are a few that I wanted to share....

NEW Space Invaders...

Boy, have I ever had a Space Invaders FIELD DAY!!!! Seriously, it seems like now that I am looking out for them, they are everywhere I go!
Here are a few from my walk in the 5th and 6th arrondissements last week with old friends L&L. One was above a video game store near the Sorbonne and the other over right by Luxembourg Gardens.

By popular demand....

Just a little post to let you readers know that I am still alive, happy, well, and having a BLAST with three different groups of visitors here this week. Plus, the weather is absolutely gorgeous- almost dream-like, and I am really enjoying being outside.

I have been taking a TON of pictures so please check back in a few much fun as it is to have visitors, I am all over the place (literally) and don't have much time to be online.

Can't wait to catch you all up with everything!

Bye for now. :)
