"This past year was the hardest one yet for him, playing baseball while maintaining a
 4.0 in the MBA program at UOP."
 
Meaning he was already doing his MBA in college.. not just starting it in the fall.
 
 
Obviously these people have money. I'm not Okay-ing living off your parents bank roll, but if they invented some logs that people put in fireplaces, at least we know that his family has money unlike some of these other people that I am convinced have massive credit card debt.

Doesn't really matter to me whether he just finished or not. If this guy's family is rich, I'm surprised they are OK with him spending thousands of dollars on his brand new wife. Just because it's their money doesn't mean it should automatically be hers because of marriage.

Seems like they really love her – there are hints here and there that she's close to his parents. You don't just pass down your vintage Dior bags to anyone! Ha.

 

Personally if she's going to buy a designer bag here anyway, I understand wanting to buy it in Italy on your honeymoon; you'll always have that memento of your honeymoon, and it's fun to say, "Oh I got this in Milan."

This blog just annoys me. I used to like it when it was more relatable, but it too has just gotten way out of hand lately. It also sounds silly but it annoys me that she can never be bothered to answer readers questions in the comments, ever. Once I sent her an email to ask something and never got a response.

I know alot of you hate C&C but I have emailed her a couple times to inquire about a few things and always had a response. Julia must just be that much busier spending all of Thomas's parent's money.

From today:

For our last night in Florence, Thomas and I went to a delicious

restaurant called Za-Za, recommended by our tour guide.
One thing that took some getting used to in Italy was eating later.
We are so used to eating dinner around 6pm, but in Italy most people
don't head out to dinner until a least 8 or 8:30.
While this was strange at first, we quickly became accustomed to the time change
and soon loved our new ritual of heading to early cocktails and relaxing
before dinner.
 
 
Really? People eat all the time at 8:00 where I'm from. Sometimes I don't get to eat until I get out of work at 9pm after working a 13 hour day with no breaks. That was just a little weird to me to point out.

I don't think it's that weird to point out. You may not eat until 9 PM, but I think most Americans eat dinner around 6-7 PM.

I sympathize with her – that would be something I'd have to get used to, too. I grew up with a Type 1 diabetic dad, who HAD to eat on a specific schedule… so we sat down to dinner every single night at 6 pm, no later than 6:45 , or he'd have issues. Even when we went out to eat, we tried to time things really carefully so even if it was just an appetizer he'd have SOMETHING to eat within that time frame.

 

I kept up the habit because I was so used to it, and my husband and I eat dinner between 6 and 7 every night, no later… he gets out of work at 4:30 and I get out at 5, so by 6:15 we are SO READY to stuff our faces.

Same here.  I've always been an early bird special eater.  7 p.m. dinner is late for us.  drool

 I guess it just must be my career/work hours then and those I associate with due to work. Now going to Spain was something to get used to.. no eating until at least 10 or 11 pm.

My boyfriend just got back from Barcelona and he'd call me at midnight their time just having gotten back from dinner. That's so crazy to me – when do you SLEEP!? Lol, but i agree with everyone else that 8 pm is pushing it for a lot of americans. I like to eat by 6-7 also.

isn't eating dinners late pretty normal for europeans, especially in italy and spain? you would think something like this would (and does) come up in a travel book, and girl meets glam wouldn't be shocked. did she do any research other than looking up where the moschino and miu miu boutiques were located? eyeroll

when i was doing research for a trip to another european country, i discovered that a lot of restaurants would be closed late afternoon-early evening, so i planned to hit up fruit stands, bakeries, etc. to have food on-hand for pre-dinner snacks, as i too an am early-bird dinner eater (much to mr moonshiner's dismay). when we visit his sibling in nyc, i always have to eat a pre-dinner snack because we rarely get out to dinner until 8-9pm.
