It's almost hereeeeeeeee!

It is time.

Ah the rivalry. Which, let's be honest, wasn't much of a rivalry until U of M went 0-2 against MSU the past two years. Now all of a sudden we have the blue team all in a frenzy over who's going to win, and I have not seen such trash talk between alumni of the two schools since...well I can't even remember.

Regardless of where your allegiance lies, it's going to be a great game. Both undefeated (but let's be honest, MSU's victories are a little more substantial than UM's), both have a score to settle or maintain, and both have a lot of pride on the line. I'm all decked out at work, managed to decorate a few UM fans cubes and offices in Sparty gear (hilarious), and am maintaining my end of the trast talk. I am crazy excited :) And also slightly nervous since I have some lunch bets on the line...

Italy, here we come!!

Part of our honeymoon is booked!! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! Here's a look at where we'll be staying:

How did this happen, you ask? Well, Allen's parents were so, so generous and gave us their week-long timeshare to use for our honeymoon! Since it's a floating timeshare, we could go anywhere we wanted, so we decided to take advantage of the opportunity and go one place we have always wanted to see.

The timeshare is located in a village called Loro Ciufueno, which is in the Tuscan region (yessss) and about a 45 minute train ride outside of Florence and Pisa. Perfect opportunity for some day trips! Since we are delaying our honeymoon by about a month after the wedding (this particular location wasn't available before then), we are also planning on flying in a few days early to see a few other areas of the country. We definitely would like to go to Rome, and wherever else we can fit in including lots of food, wine, sight seeing....and more wine and food ;)

Yay! So, so, SO excited!
