Four Things

I was tagged to participate in this meme by Sarah-Elizabeth – a sweet Scottish lass living in the beautiful heart of Italy. Smile In her blog Sarah-Elizabeth writes about her life in Italy, the renovation she and her husband are carrying out on their home and her commitment to live life as environmentally friendly as possible. So do go over and visit. I promise you that you will enjoy her blog.

Four Shows I Watch

I don’t watch much TV as I prefer the  internet these days but I do watch the occasional show every now and then. The most common ones are:
1. The Barefoot Contessa
2. Everyday Italian with Giada de Laurentis
3. Dress My Nest
4. Criminal Minds
Oh, and I do love to watch shows on the Travel Channel as long as they are about places I am interested in travelling to.
