Eleven Years as a Weismann...

Yup. Eleven years. And he ain't been murdered yet.

Joe and I spent a wonderful yet exhausting weekend in New York City celebrating our 11th year as husband and wife. Here's but a taste of what we did/saw. Will upload more later. Plus, for you yarny folks, I have my booty from the Represent night, as well as the yarn purchased from the weekend.

This was a wonderful Mexican place on the Upper East Side, Sabor a Mexico. I have read some negative reviews, but I have no idea where they might have been eating. This place rocked. Joe had soft tacos of chorizo and pork, and I had enchiladas of seasonal veggies and cheese. Great Mexican beers (no margaritas, claro que no!), great service, and wonderful place.

MUCH later that night, we went to see Pirates of Penzance at the City Opera. I've loved me some Pirates, ever since I first saw Rex Smith and Kevin Kline in cheezy movie-of-the-week costumes. But MAN this was a great show. View the photo gallery of comments on the Opera Nazi.

Sunday afternoon we saw Spamalot. Yes. Spamalot. I highly recommend it for any Python lovers. The marquis reads, "Cows, Coconuts, Killer Rabbits, Witches (too expensive), and French People." What's not to love?!? More theater nazis in the photo gallery notes.

I'm too sleepy (and still recovering from Represent and Anniversary Weekend) to upload all the pics, but needless to say it was a grand time.

For you yarn addicts (and you know who you are)...

I got this at The Yarn Connection on Represent Day...several balls for a groovy new hat, and others for some headbands/who knows what. I have a problem when I go into yarn stores and don't know what I want to do...I just grab what feels and looks good.

Here's what I got at shop on the Upper East Side. I loved the selection but detested the ladies. If I weren't on such a yarn high, I would have totally left the building. But it was the only shop in our general area. I will certainly name the shop in the photo gallery, but in all honesty they DID have a great selection. I just have oh-so-many stories about their snootiness. Photo taken in the chair of our hotel with guide book.

More later. Too tired now.

Happy anniversary!!

And nice to meet you! Thanks for stopping by my blog to say "hi." And thanks for the invite to flop at your hacienda during Rhinebeck. My favorite saying is, "Have Aerobed, will travel." Woot!!
