Mama Mia, I'm in Milano

* * *

It's Wednesday already so hubby and I are leaving tranquil Como shortly after breakfast and training to the fashion metropolis of Milano today.  I think I'm looking forward to seeing our hotel as much as I am daVinci's Last Supper:

Leonardo's fresco at the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie
Milan, Italy

We should be checking in no later than 1pm (7am back home). 

I'd have to pull the records to be sure, but I'm pretty positive that this is the most expensive hotel I'll ever have the good fortune of staying in. (omg/choke/cough/sputter she says as she clings to her souviner money)

But fear not!  There will be shoe shopping.  (whether you are a shoe fan or not, you're going to want to click that link).

Key phrases for the day:  
  • I need these shoes in black in size 40. 
  • My dear husband has our money.


I'm told that Milan has just about everything you can imagine, but from the looks of the super-mall located right next to our hotel...

I know this is going to be a different kind of shopping, altogether.

May the force be with me...and my VISA card.

For dinner, maybe Something (Pork/Chicken/Whatever) Milanese.  Or spaghetti pomodoro?  Or risotto primavera?  Or maybe just a pizza.  But, before I leave Milan, I MUST MUST MUST find the gelateria with the Nutella gelato.  Are these people geniuses or what?

OMG - my mouth waters just thinking about it. mmmmmmmmm


  1. OMG!!!! You have no idea how envious I am right now! I have no doubt that you are going to find great shoes and great gelato. Does life get any better?? That mall looks amazing. Soak it all in, savor every fabulous moment...
