Hi friends! Sorry for the light posting this week. We were traveling for the holiday weekend and now we’re all sick. (I am totally mouth breathing as I type this post.)
My mom left this week. I miss her like a toddler loves changing his mind, but I’ve been pumped to get my own room back. Especially now that everyone’s nights are punctuated by hacking fits. Sexy! I am pleased to report that we did everything on the to do list with my mom, plus some bonuses like visits to the zoo and a chocolate factory. Even though she is gone now, my chin is up, because I think she will be back soon for additional shenanigans.
On the blog front, I owe you guys posts on Montepulciano and surrounding towns, Carnival, Orvieto, Villa D’Este in Tivoli, dining near the Pantheon, and Piazza Barberini. Also info on the Henry day care situation and an updated state of the situation. Can you believe we’ve been here six months?? That is 1/6 of my Italian adventure already finito. I better get on that travel list!
Thanks to my sister for these sweet outfits from her recent trip to India. We may have had to cut Mac out of his bodice after the shoot, but we’ll always have the pics. 🙂
I didn’t watch the Super Bowl, but I did catch some commercials and the halftime show after the fact. This Diary of the Left Shark cracks me up. Every. Time.
My mom mentioned she was considering getting purse boots for her recent trip. I think I may have done a spit take. Say what? Turns out, Purse n’ Boots are exactly what you’d think. Boots with space for your stuff. I scoffed, can it fit your cell phone? IT CAN. So they claim. I must admit that I’m intrigued. I actually really like the riding and combat boots. I just wish they had pictures of the boots on actual people. Can this be comfortable? It seems like a win for vacations to pick-pockety destinations, except for the fact that most people don’t travel in boot weather.
I like my place, but I would move here tomorrow.
After gorgeous weather all week (I know, I know, shutting up), it looks like it will rain here all weekend. I’m trying to plan some inside fun. Shauna Niequist’s Bread and Wine has gotten me more excited about cooking so we may try some new recipes. (The book is a touch on the churchy side–just mentioning in case not your jam, but I heartily recommend.) We may even try to watch a whole movie on Netflix. Lately, we’ve just been picking off TV episodes. (Here’s a list of best TV on Netflix if you are looking to start a new series.) OR just drop everything and start watching Bojack Horseman. Immediately. Will Arnett. Aaron Paul. Amy Sedaris. Alison Brie.
Meet the most beloved sitcom horse of the ’90s … 20 years later. BoJack Horseman was the star of the hit TV show “Horsin’ Around,” but today he’s washed up, living in a Hollywood bachelor pad, complaining about everything, and sometimes wearing colorful sweaters. Set in an L.A. where humans and anthropomorphic animal-people coexist, “BoJack Horseman” is about one man (well, horse-man) who peaked too early and must figure out what to do next.
If you liked anything slightly oddball like Community, 30 Rock, or Arrested Development, I say to give it a shot.
How you doin’? Big weekend plans? Would you try purse boots? Already finished Bojack? Pretty funny, right??
