Winter Adventures

I had a GREAT weekend!  I had 3 days off in a row which NEVER happens and I feel like I definitely took advantage of it!

Friday I crossed several things off my 101 in 1001 list including going to a Columbus Blue Jackets game with Josh and several of his law school friends.  Then Saturday, after celebrating Josh's birthday with his family we made the trip to Akron.

We had dinner at a delicious-Food Network worthy-location, called "Melt".  Then we spent Saturday at the Football Hall of Fame in Canton, which is amazing.  I highly recommend it for sports fans.  Then once we arrived back to home base with Megan we went up to Cleveland and watched the FIRST EVER outdoor college hockey game at Progressive Field.  The Buckeyes lost but it was such a fun time, I met some people I'd heard a lot about, and they had an excellent fireworks display afterwards!

I promise there will be photos soon...but my camera batteries are dead and I need to charge them before they will upload!

Basically, I had a great weekend...and then my car tried to ruin it because my window rolled down and then wouldn't roll back up again!  But we drove home anyway and the guys at the car place down the street were nice enough to roll it up for me for free until I get the money together to pay for them to rewire it correctly...or I'll just let it car windows don't really need to roll up and down right?

Odd Pets

Every once in a while I click the "Marketplace" application on my Facebook page (in case someone is giving away a free bed that I could use).  Upon doing so yesterday I saw a pet Wallaby for sale for $1,200.  
I want one.  
However, the question is...can I have one?  Are wallabys...or is it wallabies...or maybe that's definitely not know what I mean...but are they legal in this state?
Well let's start with what we know is legal: cats and dogs (unless your landlord says no then you'll be out on the street), most lizards, but those are basic pets.  Here's a little snippet into the unusual (and expensive) pets.  
World's most expensive pets: 
Green Monkey: $16 million Missy: $1.2 million Capuchin Monkey: $10,000 That's right.  I said LEGAL!  There are neither bans nor requirements on monkey ownership in Ohio so go for it!  Buy your monkey!
Need a less feminine monkey?  Try these guys!
De Brazza's Monkey: $7,000-$10,000

Squirrel Monkey: $…

Gen Y Gives Thanks

I apologize a thousand times for the lack of updates and for putting this up so late. Large amounts of technical difficulties have inhibited my blogging, email checking, social networking, etc. However, now that I have a moment's internet access I would like to give you the link to this brilliant idea that Sharalyn Hartwell has cooked up. She writes for the Gen Y Examiner and to combat the stereotype that Gen Y is a bunch of ungrateful brats she asked members of Gen Y to write what they're grateful for and has been posting them in series.

Here's the link. She's posted a few each day so keep reading these articles of course I'm partial to mine which can be read here.

DIY Wood Stencil Sign

I purchased these cute blank signs from Target--here's what the original item looked like. Then I created a stencil using 631-this is removable vinyl.  I chose removable vinyl mostly because I had ordered a large number of a color I didn't intend to use again and had extra, also it works great for things like ceramics where you're worried 651 permanent vinyl won't remove easily.  The key for me was USE TRANSFER TAPE.  In the past a majority of my bleeding has been from the centers of the letters because I was individually placing them by hand and they weren't sealing properly.  Transfer tape not only removes me individually placing letter centers, but it also gives you a better seal.  Just take an old credit card and burnish your transfer tape FOREVER.  

I mean, burnish until you think there can't possibly be any bubbles under that piece of vinyl...and then do it some more!  Then peel up your transfer tape...and voila!

This is the paint I decided to use.  It'…
