Je vais a Paris aujourd'hui

There is a parisian-themed doll-clothes swap going on over at Sugar City Journal, and I received my first package today!

Thanks Lynne!

The Elder Hug-a-Bug couldn't wait to fill the purse with Duplos.

We had a lovely day today. The Hug-a-Bugs and myself went to the Como Park Conservatory.

It is always soul-nourishing to go to such a beautiful place.

For those of you who haven't been there before, it is a glass house full of gardens. There is a room full of ferns and a room with a terrific fish pond.

My favorite room is The Sunken Garden, seen here in a photo by the Elder Hug-a-Bug. They have different flower displays every 2 months.
Right now there are hundreds of giant Stargazer Lilies and azaleas and other pink and purple delights.
One other excitement lately is the shift in the weather.
There has been a little more warmth and a lot more sunshine!
Have a terrific Thursday!


  1. Jess, I love the doll all dressed up. She looks so chic. I'm sure your girl loved all the accessories as well. The river looks a little less foreboding today. Has your weather warmed?

  2. Jess, I'm glad you like it! Your doll is adorable!! And I agree that we should do a flickr group.

    What pretty river views. And that conservatory looks fantastic...

  3. Hey thanks guys!
    The weather is marginally better here.
    The temp keeps fluctuating between 0 and 33.
    I kinda wish it would just pick a speed.
    We did have one day when it got to 40 or so. The day after that was a huge bummer of -45 degree wind chill.
    That is why we Minnesotans love it here! i guess...
