passport to fun // paris



on January 11th we had our first Passport to Fun adventure to Paris, France! to be honest, i wasn't sure how this one was gonna go because i didn't have as much time to prepare for it as i had hoped! i kept it low key & we had a picnic @ the Eiffel tower in our living room!

i was going to rent Ratatouille or Hunchback of Notre Dame to watch for a fun Paris movie. however, a month ago the last Blockbuster near our house closed. so, we went to a movie store near our work & the only movie about Paris i could find was Passport to Paris with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. i was excited because i loved the Olsen twins when i was a kid, but i'm not sure that Thomas was thrilled at the choice of movie. we did watch it & it was cheesy, but it was still fun!

we had a photo op in front of the Eiffel tower which was a lot of fun! for our picnic we had a baguette & Brie, quiche-like bread bowls, grapes, wine, & puff pastries! it was our first time using the picnic basket we got for our wedding & it was a lot of fun. plus, Thomas got a stamp for Paris in his passport!

  6. Haha, you rented Passport to Paris? And he actually watched it?! Love this! I totally used to be an Olsen fan back in the day, but I highly doubt I could get my husband to watch one. :)
