That's Missus Madame Presidente, Thankyouverymuch

This meeting has been called to order.

Unfortunately the only meeting minutes that were obtained are on the photos below. It's not often that stories are meant to be kept as stories, told over wine and kept as fond memories between friends, but sometimes that is the case. I will state for the record gangnam style, champagne, some pin-the-tail, and a healthy dose of sparkly attire were present.

There is still one thing I'm wondering about. Why would anyone write on a vehicle, in huge letters, "THIS GIRL LOVES BRUNCH"? Nancy Drew, feel free to offer insight within.

Amber and I have had many fun years of adventures and hilarious escapades; really the wedding blog post is no where to begin to put it all together. The photo on the left, from what I know, is the oldest picture of us, possibly even the beginning of all of the nonsense. 2005 was a hella long time ago - and apparently an epic year as it was then that I made some of the best friends I have. We'll have to throw on some of those old costumes when we're 80 and lounging around with mint juleps, lassoing whippersnappers, reminiscing of our youth. Congratulations lady and I can't wait to add Saturday night to the list, and I wish you a glitter covered unicorn to ride off into the sunset on. I hope Shane's cool with that. If he's not - don't worry, Kate and I will figure something out.

And PS - yes, I am secretly hoping there is an after party after reception at Sheetz, similar to the photo on the right. I'm secretly hoping this subliminal advertising will spark additional secret hoping.

Liar, liar, PBR on Fire

It would be great if PBR had the capability to light on fire as an evaluation of fallacies. Think of the purposes! Blind dates, dudes telling you they're single, the list goes on and on. Buy them a PBR and you have an instant lie detector.

So we had a meet and greet with the gym president

BaJock Brobama. You should see his illegal gymigrant policy, and it goes without saying there's only one gun show he supports...

My photoshop is on another computer and I'm impatient. Or, impaintient, since that is what I used in all of its glory. Also of course I have no authorization to use these images.

For more on BaJock's competition, you can view a post on the awkward mustache vice president of the opposing party here.

Ohio City

A couple of Saturdays ago the stars aligned and suddenly all of my plans for the day were canceled. Quickly I thought of a replacement - shockingly, what I came up with was something I actually wanted to do instead of needed to do. A trip to Cleveland to visit Great Lakes was in order!

Admittedly, when planning this adventure, I had to google what "Ohio City" was after seeing it on a couple of Twitter feeds. It's an area of Cleveland that Allie and I learned is spunky and full of personality. A fresh food market is on the perimeter, and a number of restaurants, bars, and breweries make up for the rest of the district. The public areas were filled with tent vendors and a band.

Allie and I arrived in Ohio City on a gorgeous summer Saturday and found free parking. We got out of the car, and saw Farm Stands uniquely in front of the backdrop of the city.

Walking through the market, we found fresh food of all types.

But even the farmers take a little time off sometimes.

Our real purpose of the trip was to visit the breweries, but that was covered in an earlier post. Fun place to be and a good way to spend a Saturday!

Happy 28th Anniversary to my Parents

My mother's notes from the album state they were engaged while the song "Open Arms" by Journey was playing. I never knew. Happy Anniversary!
