My family and I took our yearly end of the summer vacation. This year we decided to visit Ocean City, MD. The last time I was in Ocean City was over 12 years ago when I turned 21. My two girl friends and I had fun celebrating, drinking, and dancing that week away… Fast forward to now in which I have a husband and a 3 year old…times have definitely changed! (For the better!)
For the majority of our vacation was spent in Ocean City, my husband & I did get the opportunity to visit a gym in Long Island that he wanted to go to. Even though it was an over 2 hour trek from my in-laws and a very long day, I’m glad we got to go work out at Powerhouse Gym in Syosset. On our way out, Tim saw the opportunity for a photo op with no other than Kai Greene who will be competing at the 2014 Mr. Olympia! Tim had a fan girl moment. Lol. Needless to say, I took a pic of him standing with Kai (and got one with Kai as well 😉 ). As part of the deal of traveling to Powerhouse Gym to work out, I told Tim we would have to make it out to Soho / NYC – specifically, Purl Soho!
My last jaunt to Purl Soho was with my sister-in-law a couple years ago so I was long over-due. Opening the door to Purl Soho was great- I couldn’t wait to surround myself in their aesthetic. If you frequent their website and are familiar with their blog Purl Bee, then you know what I mean. I immediately gravitated to their left side wall of yarns where I found Anzula, Purl Soho’s own line, Blue Sky Alpaca, Madeline Tosh, and many others. I also found and fondled some of their knitted samples- my favorite being their Big Herringbone Cowl.
Now that the weather is turning colder, I can’t wait for all of the sweater weather knitting I will partaking in!
Until next year, Summer…
