Fun in & around the D

Last weekend we had so much fun in and around the D ...
Friday night, we joined 300+ nerdfighters at the Ann Arbor District Library to see John & Hank Green. We ended up in the overflow room, which kind of bummed me out at first, but turned out to be pretty good with in-person visits from John & Hank.


Yes, that is Dan John Miller of Blanche. He narrates the audio book of Paper Towns, so I must get my hands on a copy of that! We opted not to stand in line for the book signing and headed immediately to Zingerman's for deliciousness.

On Saturday, Jennifer, Kenny, Matt & I headed downtown. It was a blustery day, but that didn't stop us from hitting Good Girls Go To Paris Creperie. Yummy! The menu is cleverly divided into Left Bank (savory) and Right Bank (sweet) options. I went for savory (the Vera) on this visit, but I want to go back soon to try the Nutella & Banana - how good does that sound?


Then we all headed to the Detroit Urban Craft Fair. It was held in the State Theatre, so there were lots of vendors. We saw a lot of really great stuff and even made a few purchases ... from Michele Maule and Sparklepants Industries. : ) We are excited to get some stuff framed and hung in our new home!

And then on Sunday, we made a stop at Xochi's and then headed to the DIA for the Monet to Dali exhibit. It was a fun way to spend the day - we were celebrating the 2nd anniversary of our first date. They have reinstalled the ceiling bling and it is so beautiful. I could just sit and stare at all its sparkliness for hours.

I voted.

Yes, I did. And yes, I am proud. I have been sporting my sticker all day. We got in line @ 6:45a and we were done around 8:15a. Not a bad way to start my day. Let's hope that watching the poll results tonight is a good way to end my night.

If you haven't voted yet - you still have time! The polls are open until 8:00p in Michigan. Get your "I Voted" sticker and then go get a free coffee from Starbucks.
