Grand Rapids Public Museum for the Grand Rapids Mini Maker Faire. It was a nice show for the first year. They had a lot of tables with 3D printers set up and examples of different things you can print with different filament.

Adam and Comfort are back in town to do house hunting! They're looking to move back to Grand Rapids. So we spent the evening with them today before they go out hunting tomorrow. Yay!
I did, however, make some tasty Frost S'more Cups. There is a lot of chocolate, coolwhip, and just overall deliciousness involved in these. I didn't have the special pan the recipe used, but a cupcake pan worked just fine.
Mini Lasagna Cups, which uses wonton wrappers to hold everything together. They were pretty tasty and more filling than they looked like they would be at first. I substituted ricotta cheese for cottage cheese, so I'm sure mine came out a little soggier than they should have. But the substitution, to me, was worth it since I really dont like ricotta cheese much.
Anyway, if you have a muffin pan lying around unused, these are both fun and tasty recipes to try!
Wyoming library this afternoon to check out their used book sale. I didn't see anything that I necessarily wanted, but I do like popping into those and checking out what's on the tables.
But today is a new day! I researched a few recipes yesterday of some things I wanted to try and first up was a blueberry crumb cake.
Everything that the recipe says is true - this is a super moist cake. And delicious. And since Chris doesn't like blueberries, the cake is all mine!
frosted sugar cookie bar recipe looked like a great way to make sugar cookies and avoid actually having to roll and cut out any cookies. It was pretty easy to make and it's very tasty. I didn't have quite large enough of a pan, so mine ended up a little thicker than the recipe calls for. But that's ok. They're very sweet and very delicious.
Karen are in town on their way up north for a vacation so we met up with them for dinner. It has been a long time since I've actually gotten to catch up with them, so it was great to catch up with them. They're always a lot of fun. Hanging out with them was a perfect way to end a pretty awesome weekend!
They've started installing parklets downtown near my work. Basically they're raised platforms in the streets (where you would normally park). And these raised platforms are for diners to sit out and enjoy the weather.
I don't know that I'd want to sit in the middle of the street and eat outside, but that's just me.
Marvel Day at Barnes and Noble and part of their Get Pop Cultured series. Adam and Comfort were asked to give a talk so we headed over this morning to watch them work.
Corrine and Dan and we all went out to watch Guardians of the Galaxy. The movie is awesome and I highly recommend going to see it. Plus there was a ice cream after the movie. Hooray!
