Juan successfully gave me his cold. So, as the end of last week came, down I went. Runny nose, sneezing, fatigue, headache, cough, the whole enchilada. I spent half of Thursday sick at work, the entire day Friday sick at home, and then worked half of Saturday sick as well. I rested the rest of the weekend, and now I'm finally seeing the end of it. I'm glad it didn't turn into anything more serious than just a cold. Usually when I get sick, it turns into bronchitis and a sinus infection. Lucky me. But this time, I think with the careful application of soup from Whole Foods, lots of water, the right cold meds, and lots of TLC from my hubby, I'm doing much better. Not 100%, but much better.

Now we get to focus on getting ourselves ready for our trip next month. It's almost a month away, and it feels like we have months to go! We still need to get some new clothes, I need to get new shoes (ones that are good for lots of walking but still look cute with most outfits), and make sure we have everything fit into one suitcase. That's right, we're sharing a suitcase. 2 weeks worth of stuff (not really, since we'll be going to a laundromat a couple of times on the trip), and I have to share luggage space. What's a girl to do? I get my own carry-on, though, so that'll be nice. I might get a smaller bag to keep some stuff in, and we're also packing a collapsing bag to bring stuff home in. :) Can we say real Italian balsamic vinegar, anyone? I keep trying to convince Juan that we need to bring home a giant wheel of parmigiano reggiano like Giada did, but he still thinks we don't have enough room. I told him for that cheese, we could make room.

So, even though it's only Tuesday, I'm yearning for the weekend. I can't wait to spend it with my amazing husband. :)


  1. Can you make room for a parm wheel for me?! I'd love to go to Italy one day, my husband's fam is from Palermo and I'd love to see all that. Take a gazillion pics and don't be shy about posting all of them!

  2. Oh no...are you abandoning your blog?! :(
