I know I keep saying this but I ALWAYS look forward to playing over at
It's the one meme that I can actually stick to & I thoroughly enjoy visiting other bloggers to read their beautiful randomness. I just get it!
I was still on my Paris cloud 9 when my 1st grandson, Erik, was born. My feet have not hit the floor since Dec. 30th. I shared a photo like this over on IG stating:
"For everything last year wasn't, this year is."
I promised to share Paris a little bit at a time so let me take you to the Louvre.
I googled how long would it take to see everything in the Louvre. This was Wiki's answer:
"It is estimated that if you looked at every piece of art in the Louvre for 30 seconds without ANY breaks, it would take you 100 days to see it all."
There you have it.
...we made a B-line straight for the Mona Lisa!
The angle is off because half of France was making the same B-line as us and you're being squeezed & kinda pushed trying to be on the honor system at 1st come 1st serve and please wait your turn! (Ok I went off on some woman next to me who didn't understand this!)
Hey, I paid for my museum ticket just like everybody else!
Mona Lisa sits behind glass and I decided to keep the little green laser light on the frame.
I snapped this with my i-phone just after I made my way to the front of the line & safely back out again. This is maybe 30 minutes after the Louvre opened.
I do not do well in crowds.
I took this under the glass pyramid.
Just the detail on the building itself is art.
I like how Frankie snuck in more "proof" I was in Paris!
Don't I look "professional?" (snort)
So, Frankie's all time favorite food is crab legs & his birthday is Sunday. I joked with him that I'd take HIM to Paris but Paris on the cheap...as in Las Vegas Paris cheap to go eat crab legs. No joke, we're going to Vegas Saturday! Sadly, the Paris hotel didn't have any rooms so I'll just have to go visit on our way to the seafood buffet!
Currently my favorite salad dressing is Chipotle Ranch by Marie's.
My son, Justin, is 29 today.
I miss him terribly.
He's currently stationed at Kunsan in S. Korea.
I snapped this a few summers ago when he returned from Kuwait.
Last but certainly not least, here's one more photo of our new little man, Erik,
That'll do it for me this week my friends. I'm slowly making my way to your blogs.
Happy(on the road again) snapping!
