I'm Back!

Hi all!  I'm back!!!

We got back Monday night from our European vacation and are finally settling back into things...still working on the laundry pile though. =)  What a trip we was amazing!  We were on "go" mode nearly the whole time...we went go-go-go from early morning till night every day until around day 8 when we took a breather and just relaxed at home for the day.  In the end we went to Bath, Stonehenge, London, Paris, Brugge in Belgium, Cambridge and Windsor.  I can't wait to go back one day!  My favorite part of the trip was was simply breathtaking.  That city had me the second I stepped off the train, literally.  One day we'll make our way back!

So how are you?!  Hopefully some of you were able to escape the cold weather that my friends here at home had while we were away.  It dumped snow on the first day of spring break here in our city.  That's the meanest joke ever, right?!  Today the sun is shining though so that's much better.

Just a quickie today as I'm headed to the gym for spin and then doing last minute prep for a baby shower I'm throwing rest for the weary!  I thought I'd share a few pics with you from our trip...a few of my faves. =)



What I Wore while in Paris...this cute J Crew Boucle Peplum Jacket was perfect!  Please excuse the flat iron wasn't compatible with any of the plugs we had. =(

Buckingham Palace

Crepes and gelato...two food groups you add to your food pyramid when you vacation in Europe. =) 

Harrods Goodies!  Fabulous red-orange leather bow gloves and chocolate came home with me.

Westminster Abbey

 Phone Booth photo op...if you go to London you must oblige! 

We took over 1,000 many great sights and memories!  It was a trip of a lifetime!  You may notice I pretty much have on the same coat in every picture...that was because I wore that coat EVERYDAY!  We weren't expecting it to be as cold as it was so I only brought one heavier coat.  Let's just say I got my money's worth out of it! =)

I'll be back next week with regular outfit posts and some new favorite picks from across the many new spring arrivals are out there!  

Thanks for checking in!  Have a great weekend!
