Our first stop.
😀

We leave tomorrow!! I am packing while trying to eat leftovers because that is less work when I start cleaning out the refrigerator.

I am nervous about the long flight. I am trying to pack enough to keep me busy enough to fly half way around the world.  Yet, I don’t want to take too much. I am trying to pack layers but I want to be very, very cute when I am there so I am going to try not to look so bulky.  Al and I are each taking one suitcase and then we are bringing an empty sea bag (a big old military issued bad that folds up small). We will fill the sea bag with our clothes and then put all of the wonderful goodies we find on our trip into our protective suitcases.

Don’t be worried about bringing everyone something. Everyone has been asking for something. I don’t mind bringing my close friends something but really this trip is about our fun and adventure, not us hurrying to find stuff for others.

I went with some friends to the Toby Keith concert last night and my super small camera broke. That stinks because it was a really good camera for the times that I didn’t want to lug my wonderfully large camera around. I think I do need to run out and grab another. I guess, better it cr@pped out last night then during the trip. I have Tina Fey’s book to keep me laughing on the plane along with snacks and a pharmacy of lotions, aspirin, eye patch, ear plugs, and small pre-pasted teeth brushes.

Well, I had best finish packing….

Life’s Large Adventures

 www.rome.info

In about one month I will be sending you all a picture from here :D. I feel so incredibly blessed.

I have a fun new adventure coming up in less than a month. My boyfriend Al and I are going to take a wonderful trip overseas. We are going to go to London, Rome and Venice. I will post pictures and thrift saving ideas while I am there. I am a small town girl who wants to travel the world so we are starting in London. Al is a huge fan and neither of us has ever been. He would love to see a football game but, with the season, we are not going to be in luck. I want to go to Rome. I am so excited about the architecture and the food. 🙂 I want to find thrift stores, flea markets and mom and pop stores. It will be amazing; I am super flexible and easy going. In Venice I want to secretly ride in a gondola under the Grand Canal singing 80’s Madonna.

Life is wonderful.
