It’s Friday! I especially love Friday’s when I know that in a few hours we will have a packed vehicle and be on our way out of town for a few days.
Tonight we will head to Rochester, where we make mandatory stops at Funkin’ Go Nuts (that’s Dunkin’ Donuts for those who don’t watch Jimmy Fallon 😉 ), the Eastview Mall, Trader Joe’s and of course, The Cheesecake Factory. We will stay in Rochester tonight and move back across the border tomorrow to visit my Great Aunt and Uncle in Welland at their home, which has been referred to as The Pork Palace for as long as I can remember. I’m really looking forward to this visit, as I have a ton of fun memories from my own childhood at their house, and am so grateful that Odin will be able to make memories there too.
We have some additional family and friends that we will see in Welland, and then on Sunday we will move along to Mississauga to visit my husband’s aunts and grandmother – who is so excited to see Odin’s ‘Happy Feet’ dance again. The day will conclude with a visit and dinner with one of my closest friends and then we will hit the road and return home.
My Starbucks mug collection will also grow on this trip – with the addition of the Niagara Falls and Toronto mugs, and likely another New York one (I already have 3 of those alone…). For those of you that may not know what I mean by this, Starbucks releases mugs for certain cities, provinces, states and countries. I’ve been collecting these mugs for a number of years now and add to it everywhere I go. My dad even found the Paris and France mini mugs for me, as I went there during high school on an exchange trip.
Have a great weekend everyone!
