Totally Frenched Out

From the blogger formerly known as Samdebretagne

Once again, there's been so much exciting stuff going on that I wouldn't even know where to start even if I had the time! Just a quick recap - Friday I went out with the Katia, Kathryn & Seb to Breakfast in America so that I could fulfill my two-month long cheeseburger craving. Saturday I headed off to see Doc, but I'm saving that post for later until I have photographic evidence (*hint hint*). And then yesterday, my friend Alisa arrived and we headed over to Erica's place for - and how cool is this - a fancy chocolate tasting with chocolates from Bruges! I swear, she's a woman after my own heart. Kyliemac was there too, as well as the lovely Kim from Francophoney.

It so much fun and with our Pizza Hut pizza and their Sky TV, I almost felt like I was back in US for a few hours. The only giveaway was that you could see the Eiffel Tower from their apartment. We tried all of these crazy chocolates, flavors like saffron-curry, wasabi, cola and black tea. My two favorites were raspberry and the one that combined tomato, basil and black olive. If you click on the pictures, you can zoom in to see all the other flavors.The other really cool thing was our personalized napkins rings - check this out:A k and an S - for my new alter-ego Ksam. I can't really go by Samdebretagne anymore (which bums me out because it has such a nice ring to it) and AFKASdB was getting a bit long. But I was feeling left out with all the K's - Katia, Kyliemac, Kathryn, Kendra, Kim, etc so I've decided I'm now either Ksam or Kamantha - take your pick. Or "Sam with a silent K" as Kyliemac likes to say.

The busy week continues - my friend Kate arrives tonight and a bunch of us are heading to Petite Anglaise's book signing tonight at Shakespeare & Co, and then tomorrow we're going to EuroDisney. So pictures to come Wednesday!

NO FAIR, I second that... You had me at the chocolates.. My mouth was watering!!! How fun!!! And I like the keychain.. CUTE... Ksam.. Has a nice ring to it.. Hey Justin.. We can go to Disney when you come to Paris, if you want.. it's 2 for one now.. but I don't know if you have to order in advance.. Probably... Or we can go in the fall when the kids are back to school--- Halloween is a great time to go! I'll plan something and we can all dress up for Halloween!! How's that??!

tickets should be able to be bought in advance for a reasonable fee. 29€ on a week day min of 5 days in advance and 36€ or something on the weekends. if you guys DO go, i demand to be notified, so that i may further profit from my year pass. yes. i have a year pass to disneyland paris. i am still, after all, a child at heart. :D
