the last weekend i really really wanted to go somewhere but... we're lazy as always so we spent the sunday in the neighborhood. saturday we spent the morning in the swimming pool with zoeti (as always): she really is something in the water! it's her element - no doubt! she already moves the feet and the arms as a real swimmer and she not afraid when she drink some water! she's my girl!!
and the afternoon... it was all about cleaning :(
i love my house but when it's time to clean i'd prefer to live in a hotel!

sunday we had a late breakfast (almost a brunch!) and we walked around the city centre. the weather was beautiful and this is one of the most amazing winter that i remember!

and we had fun taking pictures!
for lunch we had a d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s leek soup

 i decided to make some muffins with bananas and chocolate! what's more perfect with a tea for an afternoon break?

zoeti had a snack too, with some yogurt... she loved that!

lazy sunday...

yesterday we've been around for shopping (zoeti. needs a new coat) but we didn't find anything...
anyway we had fun taking pictures!

i LOVE zoeti new dress (H&M) and my new sweater ( Manila Grace)!

When we came back home zoeti was very... hungry!!! that's her relationship with books right now... i keep reading and she keep... eating books!

best... woman!

yesterday my best friend Fede asked me to go out for dinner... he and his fiancèe already told us that they'll get married on the 2nd of June so I was wondering why this dinner.. well .... he asked me to be his best men... ops woman!! it's such a honor!
we know each other since secondary school so... we were there since the very beggining: the choice of university, the "research of the right person", the degree, my wedding, my pregnancy and now his wedding (and hopefully a little baby soon!!). 
what can i say? i'm sure his wedding will be fabolous and i'm looking forward to see both of them excited, looking at each other, saying: lo voglio !

shopping time

sales... sales.... sales.... shopping for me is a slippery slope: if i don't find something in the early 10 minutes my mood becomes very very bad! and get even worst if who comes with me buy something while i'm still looking! i know... i'm a very complicate person! but the last weekend i've surprised even myself: i spent two entirely days trying clothes and shoes and actually finding something that i like!

That's the result... and i've not finished yet!
