Over the weekend

 My parents came down to visit last weekend, and as usual, their time spent here was filled with lots of laughs, tasty food and drinks, and of course, a surprise or two (enter the Bloomfield Fire Dept pulling up, sirens blaring, at 9pm on Saturday night because they thought our house was on fire from our backyard fire pit).

On Friday afternoon, I took the parents out to lunch at Holstens while the husband finished up his work day.  Little known to outsiders of Bloomfield NJ, Holstens is the restaurant where they filmed the last scene of the Sopranos (you know, right before the screen went black?  Meadow was actually parallel parking on our street- donttt stop, believinnn).  Anyways, we are having a nice little lunch and all of a sudden, 150 people are jamming the doorway, taking turns sitting in a booth next to us and taking photos like crazies.  A Sopranos tour is what it was, and i was astonished that people pay money to sit in a booth and take photos of a where a tv show happened.  We did our part, by making stupid faces in the background.  These dumb tourists are going to get home and see My Dad pretending to stab me with a fork in the background of each and every photo.  Gotta love Joisey. After that, my mom and I headed out dress shopping for my brother's upcoming wedding next April.  After walking about 3 miles through the mall, we found a dress! Great Success!  If momma aint happy...well...its a scary situation.   Friday night we cooked a nice little dinner at home and relaxed with many mudslides.

Saturday, we hit up the Harvest fest fair in the downtown (see:ghetto) area of our town.  Dad watched some mini ninjas practice and the parents got their first taste of Zeppolis!  Then off we went to Yankee Stadium, to watch the Red Sox lose (again) to the Yankees.  Dad was the only happy one on the way home.  See- it was an action packed weekend.  And yet somehow, someway, my mom found time to take a ride on the back of the husbands Harley.  Cross another item off the bucket list for Patty!

She loves that dirty water!!  We cant wait for another visit (turkey day?)
