1: KIKI"S CRAZY / STRANGE / FUN LIFE IN SCOTLAND | June 28th
2: Onyx has been well behaved as of late. :) I've been traveling a lot, so I haven't had that much time to spend with him, though. :(
4: The weekend after going to Kim and Michael's wedding in Houston, I went to a wedding with Craig. The bridge was Scottish and the groom was English, so it was very strange. Half of the people were wearing kilts! The picture on the bottom left was taken approx 4am. I was drinking red wine. Oops! That is the happy couple. The bride was Craig's cousin.
5: The wedding was in St. Andrew's at the church pictured above. The church was gorgeous... the bride had long black bridesmaids dresses with birds of paradise for their flowers. So random! But actually turned out looking nice! The reception was at the hotel to the left, which was on a golf course next to the ocean...
6: Besides playing with Onyx during the week, I've also been cooking a lot more (see far right pic of mushrooms. Yes, clearly this means I am cooking. I have photo evidence ;)). I will pathetically admit that Craig cooks more than I do, though!!
7: I've been a huge homebody lately whenever I can. I 've been doing drunken arts & crafts (hehe my txt a few wks back)... I made that calendar dry erase board framed below. We've also just been hanging out in my backyard after work during the week (if the weather is ok).
8: The most recent trip that I've taken was to Rome... OMG I love this city. If you want to ever go, I will spend a whole week there with you!! Food is amazing (so much pasta and mozerrella)...
9: We ran around and did all of the touristy things over the course of two days. They lost my baggage (WTF), so I had to wear Jen/Alicia's clothes for two days til it showed up. Alicia is the other American girl who is here, and Jen works for ConocoPhillips as well... but she's from Scotland.
10: THEN!! I went on that Mediterranean cruise with Rachel and my parents. It left out of Rome, and the first stop was the island of Sicily (big island at the toe of the Italy boot). We went to see this volcano/crater (kind of stupid), then went to a cute little town that had shopping.
11: Rachel and I shared a room with a balcony together. My parents had a room on the other side of the boat!
12: The second day of the cruise was Turkey where we saw sooooooo many ruins!
15: The third day of the cruise, we stopped in Athens, Greece. First we went to the Acropolis, then we went along the coast to this neat temple to Poseiden. Sooo pretty!
16: On the last day of the cruise, we went to Crete... saw cooking demonstrations, walked through botanical gardens, and just relaxed...
17: After we sailed back to Rome, Rachel came with me to Aberdeen... She saw a few castles around the Aberdeen area, then I took her down to Edinburgh (that's her sleeping on the train hahahahah).
19: LOVE YOU! MISS YOU! Now we need to Skype so that I can explain everything that I didn't feel like typing out for you hehe <3 Call me or send my a whatsapp when you're done with this! I am free pretty much all weekend, so whenever you want, we can talk!!!! Come play here sooooooon! :) xoxoxoxoxo
