Saturday night Darren and I went to my favorite restaurant. The Feve!
After dinner, we had some time to kill before the show we had tickets to. We wondered around Oberlin and found ourselves at Gibsons.
We had the absolute pleasure of meeting the owner Dave Gibson. His great grandfather started the business and it has been in the family ever since. Gibson’s is a mix between a grocery store, a bakery, and an ice cream parlor. They make their chocolates, candies, and baked goods right above the store! Dave Gibson gave Darren and I samples of chocolate covered blueberries and Egg Nog cremes. The chocolate covered blueberries were absolute to die for! I am definitely planning on making a big batch of these myself to give as gifts this Christmas. The Egg Nog cremes were also completely wonderful and perfect for the holidays. I bought Darren and myself a bag of chocolate covered almonds, and we went merrily on our way.
The show Darren and I went to see was Team 2X formerly known as Team Ryouko! These guys were amazing! They are martial artists/stuntmen/gymnasts and really put on an impressive show. You should definitly check out their website and videos on youtube. Very entertaining!
AND! I got called up on stage to be a volunteer. I got to write my fear on a block of wood and then chop through the block of wood, metaphorically crushing my fear. On my block of wood, I wrote the fear of doing badly on finals. Very typical of me! I was so nervous that I wouldn’t be able to chop through the wood, but I did it! It actually really stung my hand! Darren videotaped my lovely performance, but I can’t figure out how to download it onto my computer….hrmm.
Enjoy whats left of Sunday!
