Surprise! I'm in New York!

For the last month, my sister and I have been talking about the family vacation in August, everything we're going to do, buy, etc. Little did she know I planned to head up to western New York this week with my parents! We got here yesterday after a surprisingly quick 2 day drive. Usually that drive is nearly the death of me, but this time around it seemed to fly. Everyone was so surprised, which was completely the point.

Oh hey winter!

I have to say, the weather is a shock to my system. Not just the cold, but the whole "no leaves on the trees" thing. Usually I'm here in the autumn or early winter, and I kind of expected everything to look different. But it doesn't. So now I keep wanting to Christmas shop! Nothing wrong with that.

Only thing that could make this better was if Husband was here. But, alas, it wasn't possible. Maybe this summer? I hope so.

I'm so glad you got to see your fam in NY, maybe one day you and I can take a trip up there! i've been wanting to go back and actually explore w/ ppl from the city. when my parents and i went i was only 12 and all we did was wait for an entire day at the stupid statue of liberty only to have it close as soon as we get up to the entrance. i'm so bitter from that still! lol
