A little update...

So, Bradley picked me up at the airport in Denver, CO (after a 6 hour drive, bless him!). We had a great night in Downtown Denver, including dinner at PF Changs. I force-fed him Lettuce Wraps. hehe.
Following morning, the Downtown Aquarium, Penzey's, lunch at a rockin' pizzeria, then, lo and behold, we were 3 doors down from Knit-Knack (attached pix- and shameless plug for our group!)- a great yarn store Purley Man had recommended.
Then, off to Blackhawk for a night in the mountains, then... YAY! Off to Kansas!
A couple of days getting to know the town, and tonight (drum-roll please...) MET THE PARENTS!!! They like me, they really like me! >>>
OK, he's done now. Also got to ride in the combine with Brad's Dad, and Mom and I bonded over knitting.
Some time next week we're heading for Gove City Yarn, purported to be the Cascade Garden of Eden.
Having a great time, and thanks to all of our MWK friends who helped bring us to this point. More to follow!

sounds like you're having a great time. I'm jealous! I've heard of Gove City Yarns. was going to take a road trip to check it out last year but fell through due to my health problems.
Take care of you!

Enjoy your time together, sounds like everything is going great. I love Penzey's. I enjoy hearing about your trips to LYS's.

Yea!! Sorry to have missed you while you were in town. Hope you enjoyed yourself and the drive to BlackHawk. Shameless plug for Denver - you're both welcome to move here anytime you so please - it's a great city. Meeting the parents - that can be nerve-wracking - but it sounds like it went superbly. I'm lucky that way too, Matt's parents are the best and I always look forward to seeing them. :-)

what fun - and what beautiful cabinetry in that yarn shop! I'll have to be sure to go visit next time I'm in Denver... which isn't that often, but this is good to keep in the back of my mind for when that time comes...

I'm so happy for you two...sounds like things are really good.

Yeah, a little jealous, too, but happy all the same. No man's ever driven six hours for me. Sweetie, you have a keeper!!!

...AND yarn!!! (I really like that pic of you two in the shop, you look good together -- AND the MWK shirt does it...)

...AND you bonded with Mum over knitting -- can it get any better than THAT? You know you're well liked when you and the MIL can knit together.

Really...I'm so happy for you...

Can't wait to see more pics.
