So, of course, this night was no exception.
Here is a picture of Melissa looking as stunning as always in her gorgeous black and white dress.
Melissa snapped this first picture of me and quickly realized that it was off center.
So she snapped another one. Unfortunately, I then noticed my Minnie Pearl style tag showing on my
So, she tried one more time.
At this time, I was still having to wear my
After we were done with all of our posing nonsense, it was on to dinner.
This particular night, I chose all of my food selections from the light menu. I had eaten gelato at every port that we had been to, so in order to ensure that my clothes would still fit for the remainder of the trip, I decided it would not hurt me at all to go with some lower calorie choices. (Just for this one meal mind you.)
For my starter that night, I had a salad with a light vinaigrette dressing on top.
For my main course selection, I chose a grilled chicken breast with roasted vegetables. It was tasty, but not exactly filling.
Then for dessert, I chose the low calorie cheesecake topped with some form of strawberry syrup (on the side).
It was very good, but my mind kept drifting back to Sicily and all of the loving thoughts that I had about my cannoli.
Melissa and I got so tickled by our waiter Ioan. He had brought Melissa an extra order of food (I forget exactly why), and she was simply too full to eat it. But Ioan was persistent, so he tried to make her eat it by feeding her himself.
She was so embarrassed and tickled at the same time. (I'm sure me taking a picture of it was not embarrassing for her at all though.)
Our waiters, Ioan and Gusti, made each night's dinner special. I will tell you more about them in future posts.
This is what Melissa and I looked like every night while eating dinner.
All smiles and giggles.
Well, after a fun filled night of model poses and a low calorie dinner, it was time to go back to our room.
Once again, we were very excited to see what kind of towel animal would be waiting to greet us on the bed.
What does it look like to you?
