Just a Fine and Fancy Ramble to the Zoo

Something tells me it's all happening at the zoo.

Megan and I just had a great all-day date. We went to The Book Thing and market in the morning and then had lunch at Elvis's in Federal Hill. Afterwards, we went to the Maryland Zoo at Baltimore. We got in gratis (that's free bro) and saw lots of bizarre animal behavior.

We paid $2 and fed Zoe the giraffe. It was awesome being up so close. The zoo has a baby elephant (Samson), but unfortunately he was hiding. Due to the warning, we decided to give the polar bears their privacy. We'll see them next time.

Our next date will definitely include a trip to Dangerously Delicious Pies (DDP).

Crafting Update

I've been making a bunch of things lately. Most of them have been recycling projects but a few are crocheted. Last week I crocheted a baby sweater for my friend who is having her second little boy soon. 

James wanted to sing the "Fat guy in a little coat" song but the sweater was a little too small.

Anyway, the almost finished project. Since she will be having her boy in the summer, I decided to make it a size 4 month so they will be able to use it come winter time. For a thicker sweater I crocheted two strands of yarn with each stitch; one white and one blue for a textured look. Now I just weave in the ends, add a few buttons, and the sweater will be ready for shipping.

I also made this little girl's tweed jacket just for fun. I actually really love it. I hope one of my friends has a baby girl so that I can give it away!

Finals Week

Finals can be hard on everyone. While I was studying, Megan drew this picture on our whiteboard.

A Blog about a Dog

We really haven't written a new post in quite sometime - and honestly, we don't have much to write about. However, I did neglect to post about my awesome trip to see my family last month. I was able to visit, go to all of my favorite Indiana restaurants, see my sister's Charisma performance, and meet my mom's new puppy. Her name is Snooks. I got that name from an old radio show we used to listen to when we were kids called "Baby Snooks." She's hypoallergenic and that makes her the first puppy I have ever met that didn't make me sneeze. How Wonderful! The puppy and I became quick friends. Snooks knew she would miss me so she tried to be sneaky and come home with me in my backpack. She's silly.
