It’s snowing again.

This post is not about snow.

One month from tomorrow, I will be going to Rome to visit my best friend. On the list of things to do are:

  • take her and her hubby out to a dinner of their choice
  • go to H&M (I’m so worldly!)
  • visit a church that is decorated with the bones of ancient Capuchin monks
  • go to the Spanish Steps
  • Play with her dog Willy (I’m strangely excited for this)
  • visit St-Peters square
  • watch the season premier of America’s Next Top Model
  • take lots of dumb photos

I’ll only be there a week and I don’t want to exhaust myself, but I also don’t want to feel like I missed out. I figure lots of stuff I ‘have’ to see will be on the way to some of this other stuff. If you’ve been there, what was the best thing you’ve experienced?

In other news I’ve been playing with my new camera some more but until my new memory card arrives (thanks

! ps-I re-sent you the paypal payment) I can only take 3 photos at a time.

Here’s the first one I took:

Bernie-Up Close

Click through for the crazy-large version. The lj compression on this is so bad!

And here’s the first photo Brent took:

An old couple

They are wieners. This is exactly why I don’t let them in our bedroom, they get their prickle fur all in the sheets!

And just to be fair, here’s a photo of Percy. I don’t post much about her because she doesn’t do anything bad, and the excessively cute stuff never gets caught on film.

  3. I can’t see dog pictures! Fix.
    That list looks fun. We should also do a driving tour of the city, so you can at least see the colosseum and such. Also, Trevi Fountain at night. When we get to the foutain you have to say “Oh, this is the fountain from the Lizzie Maguire Movie!” to make Ryan crazy.

    rome
    my favorite thing in Rome was:
    1. food (actually my favorite thing in Italy everywhere)
    2. Villa Borghese (http://www.galleriaborghese.it). It’s a museum on one end of a really lovely park. They have incredible Bernini sculptures and some really cool Caravaggio’s too.
    The Colosseum and Pantheon are pretty spectacular too. I think the Pantheon is free.

    Your pugs are adorable.

    Definitely don’t miss the Acropolis, the Pantheon, Vatican City, St Peter’s Basilica and the Sistine Chapel. Also, take me with you?
