Hitting the Bottle

My new bottle stoppers arrived today, and I think they are fantastic!

I've been working with Rory, from Floating Water. He has a shop on Etsy. I found something really cool, if not a little morbid, for Star Wars fans. Rory makes bottle stoppers out of Star Wars figures!

After some back-and-forth messaging, I asked if he could also make a custom stopper for me, and he said he could. So besides ordering Luke, I asked Rory to make another bottle stopper for me.

Some of you may recognize the irony of why I asked him to make me a Darth Maul stopper. Rory has to cut the figures in half in order to make the stopper. Which other Star Wars character deserves to be cut in half, especially since he was cut in half? Sadly, when I asked if he could take Maul's legs and make a matching topper, Rory said he couldn't because the legs are too narrow.

Luke is pretty cool, too.

So head over to Floating Water on Etsy and order yours today!

The Science Behind Pixar

I was fortunate enough to be invited to the Science Museum of Minnesota for an open house.

I invited my friend, Sara, to be my date, and we enjoyed a wonderful evening! They wined and dined us with some amazing food. How about a mac and cheese bar, complete with all the toppings? Why haven't I thought of that before? The carved beef was great, too, but Sara enjoyed the dessert bar. Thanks to Lancer Catering for all the tasty morsels!

Once our tummies were filled with good food and drink, it was time for the Science Behind Pixar exhibit. Don't tell anyone, but this was the main reason Sara and I attended this open house! We had an absolute blast! We could have stayed all night long. The interactive exhibits not only were fun, but they were educational. We saw both adults and kids having the time of their lives. And that's how it should be. Learning can be fun, even if it involves math!

If this touring exhibit comes to your town, be sure to catch it. I wish I had time to go see it again. And don't forget to bring your wallets so you can hit the gift shops!
