A Weekend Of Relaxation!

It's been a great 2 days here in Rome, just Bridget and I doing whatever we want!  All of our other roommates went away for the weekend, so we had the whole place to ourselves and we milked it!  We went grocery shopping on Friday night and loaded up on snacks for the weekend and we've just about ate them all!  We slept in on Saturday morning for the first time in ages and it was awesome!  Then we woke up at the exact same time, super excited because........ we were going SHOPPING!  We had a blast on our day out!  We walked around the city for four hours, just wondering into any stores that we wanted and buying all kinds of fun little things!  While out, I also took the time to take some pictures of these really cool graffiti faces that are for part of my handmade book.  It was a great time out that led to coming home to do homework... what a Saturday night!  We made it fun though with a movie and good dinner in the middle of our big homework session.

This morning started off by waking up early to go to one of the largest markets in Rome.  We had been hearing all about this place and how cool it was, but we were sadly disapointed.  It was like a huge flea market combined with a bad garage sale that had random underwear stands mixed in.  We were totally confused as to why people thought this place was so cool... oh well though.  We each bought one thing today to use for parts of projects, when we were totally hoping to find all these cool steals.  Maybe next time...  Since we were up so early to go to this "cool" market, we were home by 11 this morning and started right in on homework!  It is now 10:00 at night and we have been sitting on the couch in the same position working on homework all day!  The only time that we have gotten up is to go to the kitchen to get snacks... we are lazy piles today, but we are getting lots of work done!  I spent the last 5 hours glues 1000 pages of a book together into 20 page chunks... biggest pain in the butt ever!  When the project is completely finished, it should be really neat, but the process will take a long time!  We've also been sketching, watercoloring, reseaching, illustrating, and of course skyping!  Tonight I got to skype with Nillie!  She could totally here my voice and kept looking at my picture on the screen.  She knew it was me and was so confused why I wasn't there... it was so cute!  It's been a great day of relaxing and doing homework!  Also, it's been rainy and stormy here all day, so it was the perfect Sunday afternoon in.

Tomorrow morning we are planning to get up and go to another little fresh fruit and veggie market and to hit up the cute little stores in the area... we are hoping for better luck shopping tomorrow because we want nice Italian purses, shoes, and jewelry!!!  Wish us luck... but for now, it's back to more homework!  Love from Roma!
