|{ Pizza & Gelato }|

I'm pretty jealous because Jon's aunt and uncle and their family just went to Rome, Italy and I REALLY wish I could be there again! I miss it so much!! Every few weeks I get this super intense desire to just be back on those streets and eating their amazing food! It was the trip of a lifetime and I know we'll go back someday, just no plans in the near or partially near future.

Anyway, today I was particularly feeling dreamy about Italy.  We went out to eat with our friend Paul and his family and got NYPD pizza and it was really good!!! I even got to have ham and pineapple (which is my favorite) and apparently my husband complains to people about it...geez... ;)  It was really cool to meet his family, they are super nice!! :)

While we were eating dinner, I was looking out the window and happened to see a gelateria!! I told Jon and we decided to go and check it out after we left! We were pleasantly surprised to find that it was FREAKING AWESOME!!!! They told us that they have something like 300 flavors that they just rotate around!! We got to sample a few of them and they were so awesome!!! Gelato is SO MUCH BETTER than ice cream!! They had some pretty interesting flavors.  They had one that was lavendar and chamomile and it actually tasted like that!! It was impressive!! It's called Iorio's! So if you live/visit Ann Arbor or Lansing (their other location), then I highly recommend trying it out!! YUMMY!!


  1. Yum!! Sounds like it was a lot of fun! I'm going to have to check out that gelato place!

  2. Hi Shalay. I just started following your blog after you guest post at Our Little Fam. I love your blog. You are very sweet! :) I am a Harry Potter nerd too :p

  3. Shalay, you're right - Italy was wonderful. Seeing all the beautiful sights and eating the very good food was very fun. You will have to return there sometime and enjoy it again!
