Dayton Invasion

This weekend, Anne, Clark and Ryan came to visit from Dayton! Friday night, we got some Pita Pit for dinner and decided to eat it at The Crystal. In the Crystal now, we're the fucking coolest now!

Even though the plan was to take it easy Friday night, we accidentally ended up at the Pub for aquariums. Who can say no to gigantic goblets full of beer?

After that we headed back to my house. It was a weekend of firsts for Ryan! He was introduced to Pictionary, which of course he loved. We were totally kicking ass and would have won but the other team pulled some cheating shenanigans.

Saturday, we headed uptown for the afternoon. It was a beautiful, awesome day! It was Earth Day so I guess it was appropriate. We did a little Athens shopping and had some Casa brunch. After that, we stopped by my parents' house so the boys could geek out in Dad's shop while Anne and I enjoyed the sunshine!

Saturday night, a bunch of people met us at Casa. They had scallop bacon tacos as the special! I sure did get one of those. After Casa, we went to The Union for Irish Car Bombs (Ryan's first) and pool! Basically, a perfect night. We walked home ten minutes before it began to storm, and watched The Office and ate spaghetti. Can't wait til the next viist!

Prom Re-enactment

Last night Anne and I were talking about prom and I said "Wait a minute!" and put on my prom dress! It is true, I never get rid of anything. Then we spontaneously decided to reenact my senior prom pictures from 1997. I am playing the part of myself, and Anne is playing my date, Isaac.

Charlie is SO TIRED.

Adam called me up today to tell me that Charlie was just SO tired. He was passed out hard on the couch, sleeping away! So tired! I said I would need photographic evidence of this, so Adam started taking pictures. He emailed me every time Charlie took a new pose! Seeing these really made this rainy afternoon fly by!

I took this picture today. This tree is up at the Ridges where I work. SPRING!:

Happy Easter! Featuring: Springtime Cake!

For Easter I decided to make a cake. A SPRINGTIME cake. I made the banana-raspberry cake with lemon cream cheese frosting (dad's favorite), but made it special by dressing it up for spring! I was really excited to make a cake because I finally bought myself a pedestal cake stand with domed lid. I've been wanting one for ages because I just knew how cute cakes would look inside one!

So I took a million pictures. I took the cake with me over to Mom and Dad's house for Easter dinner. Mmmm.

Poker Birthday Night!

Tonight was J's birthday. To celebrate, he and Summer hosted a poker night at their house! It was super fun because it was half poker night, HALF PARTY! One thing that was REALLY exciting was that I finally found the love of my life, Franziskaner! I haven't actually been looking that hard, but I found some when I was in Akron so I stocked up. I've been dreaming of it since San Francisco!

Mmmm. Franzi!

Summer made this kick-ass taco dip. It's totally 70's.

Here's Summer doing a beautiful job applying her lipstick!

And of course, some self-portraits. In the bathroom. WHEE!
