Europe Soundtrack.

Ironically enough, I heard nearly all these songs while in Europe. Don't be fooled by the romantic idea of accordion music or german polka! 99.9% of Europeans listen to American/English music. Which at first was kind of a let down because, how un exotic! On the other hand, hearing english while abroad is probably one of the most beautiful sounds EVER. It's a toss up.

Enjoy the tunes that got me through my makeup routine in Amsterdam, London, Germany and Paris!


and to less typos, more Jesus and an abundance of false lashes.


(translation: Kryn reporting from Versailles.)

Okay can we talk about the sad fact that life doesn't have a soundtrack? I for one know that my life would be infinitely more impressive it was accompanied by background music. Maybe the dishes wouldn't seem so boring and taking out the trash would be elevated FOR SURE.

All that to say, Versailles has background music. At the entrance of the gardens we were greeted by booming opera music which WAS AMAZING. Normally I'm more of a Nicki Manaj gal but when you're at a palace, opera is a good second choice. Exploring the gardens with classical music in the background made me feel like the main character in a Jane Austen movie....Minus the hot men. And the fancy dresses. And the servants!

But besides that, I was basically Elizabeth Bennet for 3 hours.

Here's the proof!

Dead ringer for Lizzy or no? Please say yes!

HAPPY THROWBACK. I've been back a whole month and haven't even finished Paris posts or began the London ones. At this rate, I'll be back in Paris before I finish.

Moral of the story? If you want to feel like Lizzy Bennet, tour a fancy palace and listen to opera music. Preferably at the same time! If not, you can live vicariously through this post. It's what I'll be doing 20 years from now.

The Circle of Life.

It was only a matter of time before something like this would happen....

My dog is yet again my best friend (and most willing model.) 

Grilled Cheese has been reinstated at the top of the food chain totem pole....

and Friday nights really ARE for Netflix again.

It's not really good or bad or sad or WIERD.  It's just life...

The circle of life.

You're watching Cartoon Youth Group

I grew up without TV! So imagine the joy of going to Grandmas (with a 60 inch flatscreen facing the kids bed) and watching cartoons all day long! Even though Pink Panther, The Jetsons, Flinstones and of COURSE SCOOBY DOO were my best friends as a child, I ended up not dressing up for Cartoon Night because I'm lazy.

I was also lazy and left my camera on autofocus all night which was more unfortunate than the lack of a costume.

We had Sponge Bob, Batman, Ninja Turtles, Peter Parker, Ariel, Care Bears, Jessie and Woody and a host of other animated beings make an appearance last week. I've decided that next cartoon night, I'm going as a Scooby snack! The boys won't be able to resist.
