I’m dreaming of Paris

Ok so I’m thinking of planning a long weekend away, and Paris is all that is on my mind. I think it’s important to spend a bit of time away before a new arrival, gives you both a chance to relax and not be all baby 24/7. Plus I am desperately in the need of a new environment. Ideally one where I haven’t thrown up in nearly every room. Now it’s a toss up between Paris and the English Countryside. lot’s depending on if I manage to find my passport..and if it’s in date. I know flying isn’t recommended after 6 months, so the euro tunnel is a must for me. I haven’t been to Paris in years, and as touristy as this might sound I haven’t been up the Eiffel Tower, so obviously thats on my list. But pretty much I want to eat lots of bread, take in gorgeous views,  delight in macarons and little cakes and be surrounded by gorgeous flowers. Wine would also be included in this..well maybe half a glass, I might treat myself if we go.

Found this article on how to do Paris on a budget, I am thinking of maybe only doing 2 or 3 days if we go, so it would be great not to spend a small fortune. This is from Lonely Planet.

Whenever I think of Paris I think of Funny Face with Audrey Hepburn, maybe I should get some ball gowns to wonder round Paris in…do you think there’s such thing as a maternity ball gown? and will I look a bit too fancy? This is from Lisa Congdon.
