Christmas Weekend!

Over the weekend, I was able to go home. It was pleasant to have a break from school and the Village of Ada. My fiance came with me for the weekend and enjoyed his break from work.

On Saturday, we decided to have a shopping day. As usual, we started by going to a fish store called R.M.S. Aquaculture. It is known as Cleveland's Aquarium Super Store. They have rows upon rows of fish, ranging from saltwater fish to brackish fish, to freshwater fish. They do sell other pets like bird's, rabbits, and hamsters, but they are more known for the fish. They have anything and everything for fish and for their aquariums. I could spend hours there making a wish list of future tanks that I would want to own.

Next, we went to an outdoor mall in Crocker Park. They were starting to put up all their Christmas decorations and it was beautiful. We mainly went there because they have one of the last remaining Barnes & Noble in the area. Before we went to the bookstore, we decided to get a quick "snack". We went to Mikey's Pizza and both got huge slices of pizza. My fiance loves spicy food and they had a pizza called the Demon Pizza. It had tons of peppers and a spicy sauce. For me, I got a Loaded Potato Pizza. If anyone knows me, they know that I have a deep love for potatoes. I as overjoyed when my fiance pointed it out to me. It had a thick layer of mashed potatoes with some small chunks, tons of cheese, bacon, sour cream, and scallions. It was delicious. I would order a whole pizza of this and eat it all by myself!

On Sunday, we spent the day in Medina and went to Castle Noel. This is a museum to everything Christmas. The owner is named Mark Klause and looks like Santa Clause. He collects Christmas movie props, costumes, and much much more. It is Christmas there every day and you do feel like a kid again when you go in there. The place also puts you into the Christmas Spirit.

That was pretty much my weekend. Wish it did not end because then that means it is back to school. With the semester ending soon, the workload has definitely doubled.

Here is to hoping that I am able to keep up with everything.
