Guess who's going to Italy???

Tuesday, October 18, 2011


I am going at the end for February for about a week! I cannot wait! I am going to meet up with my brother and his family for the week. It's about halfway between India and the States.

I have been to Italy before, about 5 years ago, but this time will be different. I'll be sharing this experience with my family. Plus the last time I was there, I didn't get to see half the stuff in Rome that I wanted to.

Best of all? We are going to try and do a day trip and visit the town where my grandma grew up! How cool would that be?? I still have family there, and it would be incredible to meet them.

Second best of all? (not sure if I can have two best of alls... lol) The shopping!!! I will actually be able to buy clothes in Italy!! Last time I could only buy scarves and accessories. By the time I go in February, I can fit into some awesome designer clothes.

So new goal. Get to a size 10 by February and buy something luxurious. I am so excited!!!

    I hope you have a fantastic time - it's a beautiful place. We have been to Italy a couple of times and will definitely go back. Our closest friends were married in Sorrento in the most beautiful courtyard with a gorgeous view of the Amalfi Coast. We loved Rome too and did all the typical touristy things - hmmmm I so want to go back.
    This trip will be a fabulous incentive for you between now and Feb - just think of all the lovely shopping and fab clothes!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Oohhhh I love, love, love Italy!! Of the few countries I've been to, it's my favorite. I always thought France would hold that top place in my heart, but Italy wins!

    I hope you get to meet your family!!!

    Great motivation!! Now that you mentioned that, I want to go back! The two times I was there I couldn't buy anything but accessories (scarves, some boots, and some jewelry). I can imagine how exciting it is to know that you're going to go back and enjoy the shopping! It probably sounds silly but the one thing I couldn't get that I wanted was one of those Ciao Bella t-shirts that are done in the same lettering as the Coca Cola logo. Of all things - I was bummed about missing out on a t-shirt from the market!

    It sounds like you're going to work hard to make sure you reach your goal... So when you're there, enjoy a little gelato, a slice of goooooood pizza, some good pasta, and some wine! I'm sure you will have earned it!!!
