We had our "vacation" this weekend. I use this term very liberally because we only went up to the in laws house about 2 hours away from where we live. This is literally the only time we have had to get away at all this summer. It's pathetic.

At any rate, we visited a couple of stores they have up here that we are not so fortunate to have at home. The first was the illustrious grocery store Wegman's. If we had one were we live, we would never shop anywhere else. Great value, great variety, great quality. We found a couple of wines cheaper there than we have found elsewhere.

We also took a jaunt down to Aldi's, a small bargain grocery store run by the same folks that run Trader Joe's. We happened upon a cheap bottle of chardonnay for $2.99. Why not give it a try?

And finally, we wandered downtown to a small store called The Virginia Wine Experience. I loooooove this store. They have a great variety of wines, and the staff is always very knowledgeable. I love buying Virginia wines, and I especially love buying from local stores.

In other news, I haven't been blogging much as my sister just had a baby. There were some major complications. The new mommy is fine, but the baby had to undergo surgery at 2 days old. He'll end up having 2 more by the time he is five, but he'll be fine and go on to lead a normal life.
