100!

on June 21, 2013

100-fireworksHi guys! This post is brought to you by the number 100 and in saying that let me explain why…

Today is a very big day for me, it is my 100 post and it is day 100 on our countdown to Disneyland Paris!

Very exciting stuff going on this Friday for sure:)

So for my 100th posting, I thought I would write about some of the things I am dying to do for Paris, I am sure I can find 100 of them to do but I will keep it to my top 10 list instead 🙂

We started taking the chains down, hard to believe we are already at 100!

9:Learning a new language by choice
 cvr9780743550420_9780743550420Hubby got us Pimsleur language learning software so we could learn how to speak conversational French, first time I wanted to learn a language and wasn’t forced to by a school. I really want to know some French even though I have been told it isn’t necessary  in tourist locations in Paris

8:Taking my first long international flight.

I just got my passport right before hubby and I got married and it was for our honeymoon to Jamaica and that flight was not long (provided you don’t count our overnight delay in Atlanta, Ga) so this will be my first flight ever over 5 hours.

7: Taking the Train

There are a ton of ways to get from the Paris airport to Disneyland, but we have heard about their bullet train and totally want to try that, takes 20 mins to get there.

6: Staying in the Sequoia hotel

Walking distance to all of Disneyland Paris and an indoor swimming pool, I am getting super excited as I write this 🙂

5: Euros

I am kinda nervous about this too but I have never been anywhere, where US dollars are not excepted, so I think it will be fun and new to try

4:Fall

My ABSOLUTE favorite time of the year is fall and here in Texas, this is not something we get to experience, so I am super excited to actually get to enjoy fall weather even if it is only for a few days

3. Food

We will be in Paris, I heard that Disneyland Paris has awesome chocolate croissants and Mickey chocolate waffles (dessert only) plus we have a day in Paris and really hoping to try some awesome authentic foods, to savor and crave in my foodie bank for life

2: Disneyland Paris

DISNEYLAND-PARIS_20TH_CELEBRATIONS

I had a hard time putting this a one category and fought with myself about not putting this first on the list because Disneyland Paris was always the dream for me, but going to somewhere exotic and foreign is the main goal and then doing thing there is second, so hence the placement of the theme park in #2.

Things in Disneyland Paris I am most excited about are the dragon under the Castle, 20th anniversary celebration with Dreams show, Pin Trading, food including Toad Hall, characters (I hear they have rarer characters there),  Halloween (we planned the trip to hit both the 20th and the halloween decor) & #1 at DLP, Phantom Manor

I am a HUGE Haunted Mansion fan as anyone who knows me or has read this blog before can attest to and this is the only truly unique of the Haunted houses in Disney, this was my very first reason for wanting to fly 10 hours and learn French, to go to a haunted house, of course,  lol!

1: Did I mention this is Paris?!

Ratatouille

I mean come on, when you think romance and beauty, most people minds go to Paris. I know mine does, I grew up a Disney kid and Aristocats and Beauty and the Beast are some of my favorites and now Ratatouille, a true inspiration to someone who has taught themselves to cook.

All my loves seem to stem from this one place and I am so excited and lucky to be able to take this once in a lifetime trip with my amazing husband and tour Paris in fall.

What more could you want?

So that is my top 10 list, I really probably could have gone to 100 on attractions and food alone but I think 10 is a good place 🙂

I hope you enjoyed my 100th blog and I thank you for reading them and following me on this Journey. Here is to the next 100, have a great weekend 🙂
