Thanks to all you ladies who commented on my last post. It made me feel tons better knowing that sometimes all husbands aren't that romantic. However, I do feel a bit bad because Sean actually suprised me and bought me a card and diamond earrings. They are very pretty and to say I was shocked is putting it mildy. He also cooked me a steak dinner complete with baked potatoes and green beans. I have to say it was a great Valentine's Day, even though we were unable to go anywhere.
So, this weekend I was cleaning up a bit in my bathroom and decided to sort through my cosmetics bag, so I'm going through my cosmetic bag and find this sample of lip gloss from Sephora. I apply some of the pearly pink goo to my lips and go on my way. Minutes later I lick my lips and it tastes....salty and slightly chemically. Finding that strange I walk back to the bag and read that is says bubble bath. So basically I put bubble bath on my lips. Yeah..total blonde moment right there.
On Saturday Sean and I decided to explore our little town of Grumolo. It was a nice day, cold but sunny and we enjoyed the walk. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that almost anywhere we went, we were stared at. Not just a casual glance, full on stare that lasts for what seems like minutes. I saw this adorable bakery that I wanted to go to, but the stares that we received walking past it was enough to make me say, "I'll wait another day." I knew that the Italians stared, but I wasn't aware it was quite that unnerving.
Sean and I are working on getting Internet at our apartment. So far, it doesn't seem to promising. We met with one of the companies on-post today where the guy told us if we did get a signal, it would probably come and go. Super! Seriously I feel as if I'm in the dark ages. I have no phone, no Interent and no TV. I had no idea until I read my emails from this past weekend that there was a huge amount of tornadoes back in Oklahoma. Thankfully all my friends and family are safe.
To close with, I'm leaving you with some pictures that I've taken since we've been here. Nothing spectacular and none of them have been edited, but at least it's a start!

I know it's still not a lot of pictures, but I'm running a little short on time today.
