Heebie Jeebies!

I am too excited! You know the feeling you get when there's tons of energy rushing to your fingertips, your heart is pounding and full of love and you can feel excitement building through your whole body? It's that feeling that can only come from one thing - travel plans! Feeling way too happy and excited about everything right now, and Croatia just became that much more appealing because I just booked my flight to Paris! Tomislav has a work training in Paris at the beginning of next month. Of course, the weekend before his training is my birthday. And the Monday after is also a holiday in Croatia so it's a non-working day. Obviously, this means that... we'll be spending my birthday in Paris!!! Yay! I'm so excited, I really can't hide it! As much as we've been through here and as many times as I say that I miss the States, at this time I have to be so happy and thankful that I'm here.

So proud of my handsome hubby :) and so happy he works for a French company! Yay babe!

My whole life I dreamed about what Paris would be like and I felt like the luckiest girl in the world that we got to go this past February (thanks to HHI for funding that little pre-wedding honeymoon of ours!) but now that we get to go again?! Ah the butterflies and excitement are rushing through me, I cannot wait to see Paris in the fall. I need to start planning my outfits strategically because it'll be much warmer than last time so I have so many different warm weather options now.

I can't wait to go to Paris! Time to start back up that Rosetta Stone: French! "Un homme. Une femme." Anyone ever do Rosetta Stone? I'm a big fan for anyone who wants to learn a little bit of a language and quickly!

I also can't wait for the:

1. Food (obvi):
Street Food in Paris - Falafel!

Mmmm love croissants!

My favorite thing to do

Steak Tartare is something Tomislav introduced me to, this one was absolutely delicious!
Escargot - garlicky snails yum!

Such a pretty set up of the fresh seafood

Mmm I love seafood


Long line waiting for a table at Le Comptoir du Relais - probably for their excellent Croque Monsieur!

Dessert - Macarons, of course

Pretty, fresh vegetables at the Sunday market

The BEST Crepes EVER! So much cheese, the way to be!

2. Facades - I just love those quintisentailly Parisian buildings, so gorgeous

3. Fun!!!

I love the Eiffel Tower so much, I had to get cheesy with it just this once!

Cute little shops filled with unique jewelry
Love to stroll!

Mon Amour <3

Paris feels magical, even just thinking about it. It is one of my absolute most favorite places I've ever had the chance of visiting (I'm a food and wine fanatic who loves shnuggling and romance..duh!). I am so happy we have the chance to go again! Must go practice some Francais now ;)

À bientôt!


  1. Cute photos! Spending your bday is Paris should be amazing!


  2. Ah! you are the luckiest girl in the world -- and the best dressed! I love that yellow top and black skirt, and the boots in croissant picture!

    Enjoy your trip!

    oh and you are brave for trying escargot! I never have had the chance, I think I would, but I don't know for sure until the opportunity comes! My dog eats snails from our garden all the time, and when I pull them out of his mouth it makes me gag sometimes... so I guess I'll just have to see how brave I really am one day!

  3. Yay!!! What a great way to spend your birthday.

    Are those Pierre Herme macarons? If they aren't, you should get some, because they are the best.

    Ugh, Nikki, I need to work and now all I want to do is reminisce about Paris and daydream about the next trip. ;)

  4. So odd that you posted this...I am actually taking my mom to Paris tomorrow (surprise birthday present for her). It'll be my first time there and I am dying to try escargot and frog legs. lol

    I hope you have a good time when you visit and please post some awesome photos from your trip! :)

  5. you are sooo cute nikki! have fun in Paris!!! Joyeux anniversaire !

  6. How fun!!! If you need any random suggestions let me know - but I'm sure you've done your research.

    It's been almost two years since I've been there and I miss it every dayyyy!

    Enjoy a crepe with banana and nutella for me :)

  7. Great pics!!Love your blog. What about following each other?
