Paris


Paris, was lovely. We got there early in the morning and were able to do a lot with our time there. The first day we saw Notre Dam and then napped because we were so out of it. That night we went to the Eiffel Tower to see it light up and have dinner while looking at it, it was very romantic for me and shan, the boys didn't want to join! The next day was my 20th birthday! I had planned it perfectly to spend my bid day in my favorite city, and boy was that a good idea! My mom and Shan surprised me with a birthday lunch at the Jules Vern, the restaurant at the top of the Eiffel Tower! It was so fun, we had to get dressed up and were treated like royalty, plus the food was outrageously good and we had the best view of the city. After we ate we went to the very top of the tower. Later that day we met with our friend that was also there visiting her family, and we went out for crepes. The next day we went to the Louvre, and to Versailles, both are amazing and if you ever get to go to paris, you have to see both. I love the gardens at Versailles, they are breathtaking. WE took a nice little nap in the grass at the palace as well!
Later that night, we met up with another friend who was doing an internship in paris. We ate with her and her friend at a little greek type shop, which i loved, found the other store in paris that sold dr. pepper, which made nathan ecstatic, and then got desert by the Arc de Triumph. And of course, shannon and i had to shop around the main streets and admire all the pretty things in the designer stores that we have no intention or the ability to purchase..but girls can dream, right..?
