We're back from England and had a huge blast! It was a great trip, and there are many stories to tell. I'll be doing pics and such all week.

Some of the highlights?
* Backing the rented Mercedes into a post in an Edinburgh car park
* Eating haggis
* Getting a ride from two British highway patrolmen
* Having tea in a treehouse
* Naked chicken dancing

Want to know more? You'll have to stop back this week!


  1. Welcome Back!
    Sounds like you drive like I do. Husband will never let me forget backing the car into a post in Paris.

  2. Welcome back, Kristen :)

  3. Welcome back Kristin! Didn't you vow not to eat Haggis? I like 'em, but I prefer the blood pudding. :)
    Glad you had a good time!

  4. It's the naked chicken dancing that got my interest peaked. How fun! Hope you had a wonderful time. How do you get to go all these vacations? Hawaii and now Englad? I'm envious.

  5. okay, I'm torn. I want all the stories, but I think the Naked Chicken Dancing has piqued my interest the most...

  6. I want pictures of everything BUT the Naked Chicken Dancing. Do you want to sear my corneas permanently?

  7. Sounds like you had lots of fun!
    So how is Haggis? Did ya gag?
    Can't wait to see some photos!

  8. Brave girl trying haggis. No doubt as research. Poor little naked chickens. Doesn't souind like something to dance about. Now the tree house would be cool.

  9. Well yer back so the Haggis didn't kill ya.

    It must have been the naked chicken dancing that warded off the bad MOJO. :P

  10. Sounds like it was a great trip! Welcome home!

  11. Welcome back, sweetie. Hope you took lots of pics!

  12. Awesome! You're Back!!!
    With a bang too...
    Can't wait for all your tales, you've sure gotten my curiousity revved.

    Sounds like you had a bit of excitement - your blog is going to be THE place to be this week, Woot!

  13. I LOVE the UK, although it's bloody expensive! My question: was the haggis fresh or the canned variety?

  14. Karen - in this case, hubby was driving the car - I wasn't even in it!

    Thanks, Bonnie!

    Debbie, yes I did vow not to eat it. So much for that, huh?

    Jen - we just like to travel and life's too short not to do the things you like.

    Mel - there are pictures of the naked chicken dancing but I don't know that I'll be posting them...

    Sela - I promise they wouldn't sear your corneas. Make you laugh out loud is more likely.

    Beck - Actually, the haggis was delish! Like meatloaf.

    Babe - The treehouse was the coolest!

    Eva - Actually, it made us want more.

    Amanda - Thanks!

    Shesawriter - TOns of pics!

    Michelle - THe pics will start today!

    Shannon - the haggis was fresh. I can't belive how good it was.

  15. Naked chicken dancing? Hmm... I wonder if I should ask about this. Nah... Maybe I'll regret it in the morning. *lol* Good to have you back, you blue fairy you! *g*

  16. Welcome back!

    Sounds like you had a blast and I can't wait for more pictures the castles looked amazing they must've been even more so in person - lucky girl.
