Weekend in Batavia...

Josh and I went to Batavia (or as we like to call it Bat-ah-vee-ah...long story) for the weekend to see Nic, Tim, Zubin, and as an added bonus, we got to spend some time with Nic's mom as well.

We left on Saturday morning at the ass-crack of dawn (around 7:30), at least for a Saturday anything that early is considered that, and made the trek into the States. The drive in was uneventful, but of course, I had to make a beeline pit-stop into Bath and Bodyworks as soon as we got to the Galleria.

Once I was finished there, and Josh was successfully weighed down with two large bags, we were on our way to Batavia!

I couldn't believe how big Zubin had gotten since we had last seen him. He's walking up a storm now and talking and just so freaking cute...OOF!

We sat around and talked for a bit and headed off for lunch and then off for a bit more shoppy goodness. I was SO happy, I got a pair of jeans that actually fit. I have the hardest time finding jeans because of my height, they're always too short...

Anyways, after that, we walked around the mall some more and took Zubin into the pet store and he was mesmerized by the animals. He kept trying to say the animals names and he actually said "turtle"!

We went to dinner to the Macaroni Grill where they have REALLY freaking addictive bread. The meal was ok (but WAY too big), but they can't make a brown cow to save their life. I mean really, they had to consult a manual to figure it out. The waitress came to the table and said "They don't have all the ingredients to make it". I asked "Which ones? The milk or the kahlua?" She said "Oh, that's all that goes into it? I'll tell them." Wow...Technically, if you want to be a purist, you can sprinkle nutmeg on the top, but I've yet to be in a place that's done that...

After dinner we went to see Batman (again) Josh and I saw it on Friday, but it was THAT good, that we wanted to see it a second time. If you haven't seen it yet, go see it.

Sunday morning we had a breakfast buffet at the hotel and as we were going in, Zubin looked at Tim and said "Poppa". Ohh the cuteness! We sat around and shmoozed for a couple hours and talked about families...oh the stories... ;)

After that I had to do some more shoppy goodness and I bought this at Macy's...








How could I not? It was on sale for 30% off, then I got an additional 11% off because I'm an out of town visitor...
