Friday Favorites!

I’m trying something new today.  It’s called Friday Favorites.   It seemed like a fun party!

I’m partying with Erika, Andrea, and Narci .

I know I’ve been back from Paris for TWO weeks but I took a gazillion million pictures and I’m having a hard time picking and choosing and sifting through them.  A trip report is coming… SOME DAY.  In the mean time, I’m still pretending like I haven’t worked the past 6 of 7 days in a row (with 2 more to go, yes I need to leave for work soon) and instead pretending I’m eating some macarons in the Tuileries garden…

YES this was real life two weeks ago. 

See, I can’t make this stuff up. Look. Look at this below, a SWAN in a real fairytale village.  I promise when I get my pictures and posts up you will want to read them!


For our 2 year wedding anniversary this week, my husband and I gave each other new tennis shoes.  YAY!  We both like to work out together and we both haven’t had a new pair in like… 5 years. That’s a long time. Especially for a shoe horse like myself. I got the Saucony Ride 7 and my husband got the Nike Zoom Structure 18.  We both love them.  Links are below.

#TBT to my wedding week. Or is it #TBF? (Throwback Friday?)
I couldn’t not include at least one picture from my wedding as I happen to think it was the most beautiful wedding of all time ever. ha! I’m biased, okay??

Here’s a little wedding peek-a-boo…

Ok so I kinda loved my dress and shoes.  Shoes were CHANEL. OMG. drool. Dress was Monique Lhuillier. love. swoon. sigh. sigh again.

I did not have a traditional wedding cake.  We had a French gateau.  AKA”Le Fraisier”.  It is essentially a French strawberry shortcake.  Confession: I don’t like normal cake that much.  So we had a cake in the center with a whole bunch of mini French gateaus and sweets on a bar.

 Oh the flowers. They were so pretty. Peonies, garden roses, lily of the valley, sweet pea, and fuchsias.  Why did they have to wilt and die??

Do you watch game of thrones??  I don’t know why but I looooove this show.  Even though it’s so gruesome.  The plot is just so good.  When I watch it, time goes by so fast. I feel like I’ve just sat down and then BAM. 1 hour was gone and it’s over.  And that’s the sign of a good show.  It makes you feel like you’ve left reality for a while.  Can we talk about Jorah though?  Jorah was my hero. For real.  Of course, after Ned Stark.  But Ned Died.  And now Jorah is gonna die. He’s got the stone man disease. Nooooo!  I guess I have to find another hero (for now).  I’m rooting for Stannis Baratheon.  He’s one of the few who’s smart and seems to have a plan.

This weekend my husband and I are headed to the Ojai Valley Resort for some R&R and to celebrate our anniversary.  I’m so excited.  Confession. I wanted to go here because I saw it on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.  My husband was like, um, how’d you find out about this hotel? It’s like, in the middle of nowhere? And I’m like, uh, I heard about it, somewhere. And then I fessed up.  I saw it on the trashy tv show you don’t like! GAAH.

Last thing, a FUNNY STORY
So I was talking to one of my patients this week, a 10 year old girl.  She had just started her menarche the week before for the first time ever.  So I asked her how she liked it.  She looked at me and said “WOOF”.  Her Mom and I LOL’d forever.  I’m still giggling.  Yep, pretty much sums that up.

OMG, I had so much fun writing this!   Should I do this again? Seriously though, I’ve gotta get to work now.

      The flowers are so pretty… I tried to dry my bouquet but it didn't work out.

    Beautiful photos! Yes, I am a huge fan of GOT, and I was shocked when Ser Jorah caught the stone man disease. I'm hoping the Red Woman can cure him (though it seems doubtful). I'm on pins and needles till Sunday night! Thanks for joining us at Foodie Friday and Everything Else. Hope to see you again!

      The problem is he Red Woman is up in the North now and he's wandering along a beach. I think he is doomed.
