Masquerade Pics

I’m a little bit over facebook right now, so I’m posting stuff on here, 
rather that setting up new albums there. Enjoy!

London… and Paris!

We’ve been busy!

Halloween came and went with several parties (people here love Halloween… who knew?). Hult rented out a bar near the Gherkin for a full-on costume party.

{Grant was a 1970s soccer star. He was a big hit!}

We went to a Swedish birthday party from my classmate Elin–so fun!

I attended a Hillsong London Sisterhood event and met Mrs. Anna Smith, got a signed copy of her book(!) and explored Surrey (perfectly English!).

Wednesday we had dinner first at Wahaca (the only decent Mexican food in London) with Grant’s Peruvian classmates, Alejandro and Fiorella. Then we made our way to the dazzling Lyceum in West End/ Covent Garden.

Grant and I have had a packed week with school, but managed  to see The Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre (beautiful, moving, powerful, and awesome).

             

Tomorrow night Grant has tickets to see Incubus at the Alexander Palace (aka, “The People’s Palace,” aka, “The Ally Pally”) with a fun group of guys from church.

I am attending Hillsong’s VELOCITY Masquerade Boat Party!! The tickets sold out earlier this week!! {There should be 300+ people at this kick-off event!!} I have several classmates coming! And the usual fun crowd from church. It should be amazing, with drinks, nibbles, a DJ, masks, and fireworks on the Thames as we cruise from Embankment to Putney Bridge!!!!

And now for the best bit: WE’RE SPENDING THE WEEKEND IN PARIS! Yep. Can’t wait. We’ve booked our eurostar tickets from King’s Cross/ St. Pancras to Gare du Nord, Paris {from the center of London to the heart of Paris!} Oui oui!

We’re staying in the Eiffel Tower District and plan to see as much as we can before returning Sunday night. I can’t wait! I’ve written too much already. I’ll give you the details of Paris when we get back!

A Treat for You

Just for those of you who read and follow my blog. Here’s a shot of the Lady Chapel {aka: Albert Memorial Chapel} of St. George’s Chapel at Windsor. Stunning, isn’t it?

And a few Guards just walking around on duty in the Lower Ward of the palace.

And finally, we have had a guest in our backgarden today. I was sitting in bed reading this morning, when something outside caught my eye… a fox! I’m pretty sure it was just perusing the garden for things to snack on, but still….

I have limited iPhone evidence. After I show it to Grant, I’ll see if he confirms or denies my claim that a fox is what I saw. {I wish you could have seen me trying to record this darting, quick little creature outside the french doors of our bedroom…. He was a good distance away, I was perched on the edge of the end of our bed, trying to get a shot that worked, all the while battling the curtains to stay open without dropping the phone… that could’ve been a noteworthy sight in and of itself, had you been here this morning…!}
