Erm's Birthday Socks have been renamed the Busted Toe Socks!

Friday Erm picked me up at work and we headed down to the MGM Grand at Foxwoods for the night! I don't have any pics because... no camera. And my phone was dying so I couldn't even take crappy phone pics. We checked into our room and got dressed and went down to grab a bite to eat before the Earth Wind & Fire and Chicago concert! This weekend was Erm's birthday present. The show was GREAT! Then we hit the blackjack tables which was also great :)

Saturday morning we got room service breakfast and got on the road to drive up to Kennebunkport, Maine. We love it up there, its so relaxing and there are lots of great restaurants to sit outside and enjoy the ocean at. We usually stay right in Kennebunkport, but this time we stayed at the Kennebunk Inn, which we cannot recommend enough! The staff was so friendly and helpful, our suite was HUGE and a steal for the price, and the restaurant was delicious. Erm's best friend and his fiance joined us for this leg of the trip, as a surprise for Erm, and they stayed with us at the Inn. He was so happy and surprised to see them!

Yesterday we had brunch at Federal Jacks, one of our favorite places in Kennebunkport. We also had lunch there the day before. Its a brewpub where they have Shipyard beer, which is just fantastic. The brunch blew us away, we stuffed ourselves and got on the road to see Erm's family and mine, and then finally got home last night to settle in and get ready for the week.

On the car ride from Connecticut to Maine, I finally finished those socks! Here they are, phone pictures and all:

Pattern: Uptown Boot Socks (Ravelry Link) by Jennifer Appleby
Size: Men's 12
Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Solid in Slate, 420 yds; Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Select Semi Solids, Slate (just to finish the toe)
The second sock also boasts the best toe I have kitchnered yet. :) The crappy phone picture doesn't do it justice. I'll take a better one when I have a camera!
