super fun news

28 Apr

What a day!  I have got some super fun news.

We’re going to Paris!

Jon and I have been working on planning our summer vacation for awhile.  Remember this post?  Well, Jon has been spending a lot of time researching flights and hotels, trying to get us a good deal.  We really haven’t been picky about where to go…we just knew we wanted to go overseas because we haven’t been outside the U.S. since Tokyo almost 2 years ago!

Anyway, we were looking more into South America because the flights are much more affordable than Europe.  On a whim the other night, Jon typed in the information to find out how much a flight to Barcelona would cost, and in another instant a round trip flight from Dallas to Barcelona to Paris and back to Dallas popped up.  Whoohoo!  I’m so excited.  I’ve never been to Europe, but have always wanted to go.  We leave just a few days after I get out of school.  It’s already almost time to start packing, ha!

Now I just have to survive four more weeks of madness and we’ll be on our way!

I’ve been bursting at the seams all day, but now on to breakfast.

I had an Ezekiel English muffin with almond butter and 1/2 a sliced banana.  One of my favorite breakies.  Gotta love the fine paper dishware as well.  Great for on-the-go!

Lunch today was Pita Pit, and unfortunately I didn’t get a picture.  It was delicious as always, though!

Later I had a snack of Whole Soy vanilla yogurt and raw oatmeal.  And some carrots for later on.

Raw oatmeal is SO good in yogurt!  I used to eat it in Greek yogurt a long time ago, and I hadn’t had it in awhile.  The other day I ran out of granola, and decided to throw in some oats instead, and I fell in love all over again!  You MUST try it.

I had a meeting after school today that lasted until 5, which means I didn’t get home until 6.  As soon as I walked in the door, Jon had some casual clothes laid out for me and said “get dressed, we’re goin’ out!”  What a guy!

Needless to say, it’s been a busy evening, and I’m about to peace out and get some sleep.  This is really Thursday night for me because I took off work Friday.  The plan is to stay home and grade essays all day, and then head south to hit up the Train concert!  We’re staying in a hotel Friday night, stopping in the city to see the inlaws on Saturday and then heading home!  Blogging may be a bit “hit and miss” this weekend, but I’ll def. be around.

Hope you’re all having a great night!
