The past two weeks of my life have been absolutely insane. There’s no other way to describe it. My friend Colleen won the Jaguars Social League trip to London to see our beloved Jags play the 49ers. That was on the 17th. And then she generously asked me to tag along as her +1.
So on on Friday the 25th, we boarded a plane to London. Once we landed Saturday morning, we showered, took a quick nap and headed to the Pep Rally at Trafalgar Square.
Road trip time!
Since I’m headed on a little mini-vacation this week to Orlando with Stephanie, I thought it’d be fun to share My 5 Favorite Places in the World (so far):

On our last full day in London, we scheduled a morning jaunt out to Stonehenge. We boarded a bus & rode for nearly two hours out into the English countryside to be greeted by one of the most amazing & mystical landmarks:
One of the biggest things I wanted to do in London was go to a theatre production on the West End. I’ve always wanted to see Wicked & it happens to be on a long-term run at the Apollo Victoria theatre. Winner, winner, chicken dinner!
So I threw on a dress, some heels & my faux-fur shrug & we grabbed a taxi headed for the West End.
On our last night in Paris, Brandon & I decided to do something so incredibly us – Grab a bottle of vino, some McDonald’s & park our butts in front of the Eiffel Tower (seriously, I know I have an obsession. No need to point it out):
