Abbots- and a winner
My mom and sister came up this past weekend (to go wedding dress shopping). Seriously now, those wedding boutiques are so weird. I mean you go in and meet a lady, and next thing you know you're in a dressing room with her half naked!? Wait no dinner and a drink first??
Dress shopping is a very fun and exciting thing for most girls, I'm happy, but not foaming at the mouth when I see all the white dresses. My sister however... she's pretty darn excited (side note: she got married 6 years ago but would happily do it over every year, to the same guy of course). The woman at the first shop kept looking at my sister when she was telling us about the dresses LOL. Then she'd stop herself and go "wait! you aren't the bride (looking at my sister), you are!(looking at me)" It's all good, she was really nice and I found it totally amusing.
So you may be wondering why there is a huge thing of frozen custard at the top of the screen huh? Well that's Abbotts. You see Abbotts' first store was opened here in Rochester in 1926, it was down at Ontario Beach Park. Most of the locations in the area are only open seasonally, which means summer = custard. I was super excited to see their specialty flavor for the day was Reese's peanut butter cup and Reese's pieces mixed with vanilla custard. It was AMAZING!!! So creamy good! And I have to say my favorite candy is Reese's so I was totally excited. This was our "after dress shopping" activity. Those boutiques aren't too happy when you show up covered in custard drippings :)
Yup most brides-to-be are doing the whole restriction diet/ loose weight thing... this bride-to-be says "hand me the custard please!" and lets dig on in! The three of us shared a large cup, shared calories don't count right?
You're probably wondering if I found a dress... yes and no... but it's going to be a secret either way... for now I'll give you this picture from a company trip I took a few years ago to Vegas... needless to say my dress will NOT look like this... I've blurred my coworkers face as to not reveal HIS identity! You know what they say... what happens in vegas...
Do you like ice cream or custard better? Given the option I'd pick custard for sure!
