Stacey had done some Internet research on stuff that she wanted to do/see while she was up here. She found some great classes being offered at the Corning Museum and signed us up for a "flame work" class. This is where you take colored glass rods, heat them over an open flame and work them, add colors, etc until you have your shape. In our case we were going to make glass pendants. We were the first ones there of the morning and that was perfect. We didn't have a ton of people to wait with or have them breathing down our necks to finish. We had a two on one with the teacher and she helped us pick colors and work the glass. It was totally awesome! We had such a blast and our necklaces turned out really cool. After making our glass charms, we toured the museum and discovered that we enjoyed the shopping market best of all. We each found some really cool glass earrings, rings, etc. Stacey even picked up a great gift for her MIL.
We couldn't spend all day playing 'cause we had the grocery shopping to do for the crop. I knew we had to hit Sam's Club and I was hoping we could make it to Wegmans. BUT, we knew that there was a Michael's and JoAnn's near Sam's, so I suggested a quick stop. Stacey picked Michael's and our "quick stop" turned into over an hour! We found some really great stuff in there though, so it was so worth it. Plus, is just seemed like our old times shopping together in Tampa, so I didn't want to stop.
We got to Sam's got all the stuff we needed there including the meat that I kept calling "butt" meat. I have heard of pork "butt" being used for what I needed it for. Stacey just laughed and said that it couldn't be pork butt that I wanted. I asked the butcher and "yes" it's called shoulder butt! I knew there was a butt in there somewhere. And it was cause for a joke when Stacey asked the cute check out guy to smack her butt and without missing a beat he slapped our giant slab of meat! Too funny! After Sam's we were running out of time, so we went to Tops instead of Wegmans. What a great find. It is a cool grocery store that had the neatest stuff. In fact we got these super, giant sized marshmallows that were the hit of the crop.
A long day of shopping and we were exhausted. We put everything away and did a bit more organizing and off to bed! We had a big next few days and needed our sleep.
