The Missing Green Jacket

Today, we went to Versailles. I let my parents view the palace while I roamed the gardens and read. When they got out of the palace, we saw Marie Antoinette's love cottage. It was so beautiful.

If you want to see more pictures from my last visit, go here.

We ate some delicious baguette sandwiches and headed back to Paris. Our first stop was Notre Dame. You can't visit Paris without going to the Notre Dame. It's beautiful!

Our next stop was the Louvre. Boy, was it hot in there. But, we buzzed around really quick and got to see the big ones then got the heck out of there.

If you ever visit Paris, and you plan on going to Museums, get yourself one of these babies:

Yeah, that's the real Mona Lisa in the background. Clever, I know.
You can pick them up at any Museum, and it lets you bypass the lines. You can get into tons of places like the Louvre, Musee D'Orsay, on top of Arc de Triumph, Versailles, Trocadero, etc. It was only 35 euro for 2 days, and in the end, it ended up saving us a bunch of money. So, get one!

Ok, now for the title of this post... remember my green jacket that is in almost every single picture? I lost it this morning. The forecast showed rain, so we were planning on bringing our rain coats. As it was getting close for us to leave, I couldn't find it anywhere and my heart was beginning to break. That jacket has been all over Europe with me, keeping me warm, dry (except from the country walk from you know where), and helping me stand out from the crowd, making it easy for others to find me. We had the hotel call our hotel in London, but they didn't have it. We came home from the long day, and I had almost given up all hope. Then, I checked the outside of my suitcase. That's where I saw it. That flash of bright green. WOO! I whipped it out and hung it on the wall. There's no way I'm losing this baby.
