Paris Part Two

       So I know this blog has mainly been dedicated to health and fitness, but I want it to also be a little bit of a lifestyle blog as well. I just mainly want to be able to look back through my archives and have memories other than food and workouts ya know? haha. Don't get me wrong, health and fitness will always be a HUGE part of my life and will continue to be a majority of my posts, BUT my husband and I may be traveling a lot more than we thought in this upcoming year and I'm too lazy to create a whole different blog for that so this is what ya get. Hope you're ok with it :) 
      So now that we've cleared that up, I wanted to share some more pictures of our trip and trust me I regret not taking enough food pics. The sad thing is I loved ALL the food so much, taking pictures of it didn't even cross my mind until my last bite... Oops. 
 Little Orem Utah girl finally going to Europe! 

 This was about 2 blocks away from our apartment that we stayed in. 

Just being touristy and stuff. 

 Oh look! A food pic :)

 That sky though!

 Walking around the Lourve 

 Obsessed with crepes more than EVER. 

 My favorite door the whole trip (trust me there are a lot of awesome doors) 

Had to get a goofy pic in front of the door duh. Too bad the coolest part was cut off.. Phil. 

Phil and his little brother Daniel who now lives in Paris and is going to high school there, talk about a life changing experience! He's excited though that he gets to do the same thing that both of his older brothers did about 15 years earlier, so cool.

Paul Bakeries were on just about every corner in Paris. Good thing too, because it gave me plenty of chances to eat this heaven sent pistachio oversized macaroon. 

This is the only pic we have of the tiny apartment (more like a room) that we stayed in for the first half of the trip. Phil's head is at one end of the room and that wall is the other end. We both barely fit in the bed but hey, no complaints here for a free place to stay! We were out and about all day and really only came back here to sleep.

Santa has a little bit different style here in Europe. 

The most amazing stained glass I've ever seen. 

It's impossible for me to focus long enough to post all of my pictures at once, so I'll have to get around to that another time :)

Paris Part One

        My husband and I were lucky enough to go to Paris this month. Talk about a great way to end 2014!! I had never been to Europe before so it was like a whole new world to me. I was obsessed with literally everything. Everywhere you looked was magical. Everything had so much detail and was so interesting, even the simple things were amazing! 

       Phil (my husband) actually partially grew up there, he went to 2 years of high school at the American School of Paris and then spent time there after his LDS mission. It was so cool to be able to see him in his element and get a small perspective of part of his childhood. He doesn't speak a lot of French but he definitely knew enough to get by and he honestly knows the city better than he knows Salt Lake City so I pretty much had a personal tour guide the entire time. So awesome. Anyways, here are a few pics that I snagged off of my new camera (early X-mas gift). I have a TON more from my phone which I will be posting eventually... stay tuned. 

Side note: A few people have asked about my coats so here are the deets....

Grey coat: Soel Boutique at the Riverwoods in Provo:
