obsessing: my photos from our trip to Europe (post to come soon). For a first trip across the pond and a first stamp in the passport; it was pretty great. That photo above was taken on my iPhone, through the window of a train and has NOT been edited at all. Ya, that place was pretty freaking amazing. Swiss Alps, I'm coming for you again someday. 
reading: before the first 11hr plane ride I decided to download Steve Martin's Born Standing Up and it was a pretty great decision at at that. although with all that travel I didn't spend much time reading because it makes me quite nauseous to read and ride. 
watching: well when you leave for a 10day trip to Europe and you watch just about every show on TV; you can expect to come home to about 50+ episodes of greatness waiting to be seen. And in all of our Italian hotels we laughed endlessly about every channel being in Italian except MTV. So ya, we watched A LOT of music videos. And I STILL can't get those Italian pop songs out of my head.
planning: which of the thousands of pictures I took to share with you here. I kind of really hate when people travel and then share an abundance of photos that you could easily find on the internet. So to prevent that... I'm trying to only choose a few choice ones... like the really really good ones that you may actually want to see. I promise to do my best. 
sick of: BEING SICK! I caught something icky during the last two days of our trip and it just keeps getting weirder. Sore throat, nausea, ear pain and then yesterday... pink eye. Like seriously? I'll take one bath tub full of Lysol, please and thank you. 
thinking about: the next step in life. it's funny how taking a trip and seeing how the world lives and works makes you want to re-assess your own life. Time to buckle down and pay off all this nasty debt so I can do more living!
