Can I just say it feels like I've been away from blog-land for um, foreverrr?
We had a visitor this weekend... and I've been busy with school...
and of course I somehow got sucked into 2 different novels (oops).
But, I'm back... and I have some adventures to share!
#1. So actually, this was last weekend (whatev)
We went BACK up to Mt. Etna (um, anyone remember the video of the ERUPTION?! well, we went back up there THREE days after that. Yeah, my husband has lost his mind... or either he just really wanted to ski. idunno.)
It was my first time skiing though... and um, I hated it. So... I have no awesome ski bunny pics of me. Instead....
Girl crying in the snow...
No, that's not me (although she did have the EXACT SAME coat & pants)
Some crazy Italian girl got a phone call, freaked out crying and arguing with whoever...
and ran to this PILE OF SNOW to lay down and cry and argue... wtf?!
She got out of her perfectly dry, warm CAR to lay in the SNOW to cry...
Sometimes I seriously wonder about these people.
Me sitting in the car...
Um, did I mention that I hate skiing?
I didn't completely suck... I just hated it.
I'm from the South y'all... we don't do snow.
So instead I sat in the car and waited on everyone else to finish up :)
My VDay Mani...
Oh and a weird-skinny Italiano Coca-Cola :) Mmm...
#2. THIS weekend was full of sunshine and perfect temperatures!
Oh and we had a guest... Aaron's friend, Steve!
We spent some time touring the sights with him...
Enjoying the amazing weather and views in Taormina (again lol)
It was SUNNYYYY!
Seriously, amazing views... and look at that water!
Me and My Love Bug
Mt. Etna in the distance!
Aaron and Steve
In the distance you can actually see the mainland of Italy!!
The Straits of Messina separating Sicily and Italy
Love locks... all over Europe... so sweet!
So pretty... couldn't stop myself from taking 32495788621 pics..
Also in Taormina, we FINALLY got to see the Ancient Greek Theatre!
It was HOT... This is me wishing I had on shorts and a tanktop...
See that speck in the top?
That's a skydiver...
Everyone was taking advantage of the amazing weather!
The Greek Theatre in Taormina...
Still used for concerts and major film festivals..
big name celebs come here every year!!
Later that evening we went to Carnevale in Aci Reale!!
But I'm saving that for tomorrow ;)
Come back for some cool pics of the 2nd biggest Carnevale celebration in Italy!
