Slogan for Obama's 2nd term

When Obama becomes President and his 1st term whizzes by, I think he should run for a 2nd term and his slogan should be:

Once you go black!
You never go back!

Too much? perhaps I guess but hey, you never know.

Bacon Lover's Ball

Today is President's Day and as I looked up at my corkboard at work, I saw my polaroid from a party I went to last year on this day called the Bacon Lover's Ball. This occasion was in memory of our presidents -- I think -- not sure why our presidents were referred to as pigs, since I thought that was the nickname for cops.

Below are a few pics from that night, exactly one year ago. Too bad no one decided to host the 2nd annual Bacon Lover's Ball. Enjoy!

You can see by the theme, everything was very pink and piggy.

These were the Bacon House Rules

Party attendees were asked to wear pink to celebrate. Above are The Aronchick's proud and pink.

Bacon favors

The Mancino contribution was bacon ice cream which was better than it sounds actually. It had real bacon bits in it, with carmelized pecans in a maple flavored ice cream.

Roaming gnome

In true roaming gnome fashion, I have made even more travel plans. Next month I will head out to Palm Springs with my best friend Emily and her family for almost a week. It is going to be awesome. We will be staying in this great house in the hills. Its going to be great not to have to bundle up before going outside, although I will admit the weather in Seattle hasn't been that bad lately, but still...the sun is always a great thing to look forward to. I will make sure I take plenty of sunscreen since I don't tan per say, more of a burn when I'm in the direct sunlight.
Say goodbye to winter Mr. Gnome and get ready to travel!

Italy - here we come!

This weekend we booked our 3 week vacation to Italy. I don't think it has really sunk in yet. I'm so freakin' excited I can't even believe it. We will be leaving 7/27 and coming home 8/15.
Here is the tour we are doing for the first half of the trip.

We will be finishing up the rest of the trip in Prisciotta, Italy. My Mother in law, Lettie, grew up there and has family there so it is going to be such an awesome experience to see her hometown. Can't wait!
