A Closer Look

  • Must.book.trip.to.Rome. This review totally sold me. Whether or not I bring the hubs now? TBD.. he can come as long as he doesn't mind 'When the beautiful man in the black suit and silk tie tips his hat and say's "Ciao Bella" <--- my favorite quote in the article
  • Hi, um... my new favorite obsession? This blog I just came across for the first time. Fashion Under 100. I could scroll down and read that site for hours (that and The Skinny Website) [picture: source]
  • Cute Little Old Man Alert! The Red Sox asked this former Bat Boy to come back and work again for them. The catch? He was a bat boy 87 years ago!!!!!!! He came back on his 100th birthday. I heard the theme to Rudy in the background (which makes me cry every.time. i heard it) while reading that.
  • For REAL HOUSEWIVES fans: Three ladies on the New Jersey season coming up apparently have mob ties. Whadathunkit?!? [btw - i'm fist pumping my hand counting down the days til that season debuts! plus i might have to get acrylic nails put on before watching the premiere]
  • And last but not least, everyone say a BIG CONGRATS to Katelin over at Gorgeous Footsteps in the Sand for getting engaged!!! When stuff happens to bloggers I love, I feel like its my out of town sorority sister and get all excited!

Growing up, every time my dad went out of town on a business trip, my mom and I would watch Roman Holiday. Seeing Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn traipsing around the city made me totally fall in love with it. Swoon.

Rudy is one of the most tearjerking movies EVER. I swear its power gets stronger every time I watch it.
