Other Life Updates

I know that I promised to update everyone on our trip to Buffalo. But, three Halloween parties in three days has kept us pretty busy!

We had a great time! I got to eat all my favorite WNY foods - I had a great fish fry, tacos from Mighty Taco, and a Wegman's Roast Beef Sub (which is really a D'Bella's sub). If you don't know what Wegmans is - it's the best grocery store in the world! In fact, they just won a Food Network Award. I mis Wegmans.

We had really great weather for most of our trip, and the kids walked just about every day. My parents live in a suburb with sidewalks with a good 10 feet between the sidewalk and the street, and their area isn't very busy, so it's easy to let the kids walk a lot. Little Girl and I went hiking one day with my Dad on Grand Island, and little boy got his first hair cut.

The last weekend we were there, my two aunts and my cousin came to visit. We all had fun, and one aunt, my cousin, and I visited Have Ewe Any Wool to celebrate Linda's 3rd anniversary as a shopowner. I bought some yarn for socks, and I'm trying to get through my Christmas knitting so I can get to the socks!

The trip home was uneventful, especially since the kids slept through Massachusetts.

TONIGHT - the Bruins play the Sabres, and I'm going to the game! (Is it wrong to wear a Bruins jersey but cheer for Buffalo?)

OH! I got my Ravelry invite today. My username is "Dorothy" (well, it wasn't taken yet), and hopefully I'll have something up there soon!

Happy knitting!

I love wegmans - I adopted it when I moved to WNY for school. I'm so jealous that you are at the game. I'm watching as we speak - tied 3 to 3 in the 3rd. Hope you had a great time. Go Sabres!

One should nev-ah, ev-ah root for the Bruins. The Canadiens should be the teem one roots for!

Maybe the Sabres. But NEVER the Bruins!
