Roma!

B-

The photos are seriously amazing. I think the new chair looks perfect on the more vintage rug, you gotta mix up the design eras and I think you guys nailed it. The new blanket looks sooooo warm and yummy. I can see why it's Nicky's new favorite place, an ideal spot to play XBox. I also happen to now be craving cupcakes and brushetta, an odd thing to say, but true nonetheless.

I forgot to mention one of my favorite purchases from Ikea this weekend. You know I've been weary of putting plastic in the microwave. But since I've been bringing leftovers to work a lot, it's been hard to avoid. So I invested (a whoppin' $2.99 each) in a new ceramic bowl and plate just for the office.
They look almost black in the photos but are actually a really deep purple and just lovely. Especially because they are like nothing I use at home. So now I get my Fargrik Hogst on and I'm a happy lady who lunches.

I also drink everyday out of my perfect mug from Anthropologie. Why perfect? Because it has a really wide base and is almost impossible to knock over, which I am prone to do. Mine of course has a giant Q on it. I bought it for myself after I spent 4 hours at the DMV changing my driver's license to my married name. 

In other news. I need your help. I have a mission for you should you choose to accept it. 

As you know, I'm headed to Rome next month for Familypalooza 2011! Whoop Whoop! I was fortunate enough to visit Rome when I was 18, but that seems like ages ago now and you studied abroad there for a whole semester. I need advice! Where to eat, where to shop, sights to see off the beaten path. HELP! We're also taking a side trip to Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast. Jefe and I have talked about buying some art while we're in Italy. Nothing fancy, but something to commemorate our trip. Any suggestions of what we should be looking for? I'm SO excited!

xo,
