My Love, Robots and a Mattress factory

My lovely boyfriend, a talented mechanically-oriented, sweet, creative, stubborn soul has gotten himself into a glorious show at The Mattress Factory. The Mattress factory is a world renowned Installation Art museum that is completely kickass. To be honest, I usually am not impressed with art anymore, gallery art anyway, and the Mattress Factory always impresses me with their shows.

Adam's piece is crazy, whimsical and tells stories. Plus, it's a robot. You should come see it!
Other pieces are rumored to include night vision goggles, embroidery and a space vaccuum. It's gonna be cool!

So, check out this link

Meet The Made
for more info. Lots of other Robot happenings to celebrate Pittsburgh's 250th Anniversary. Umm...don't ask me how it all relates, but the city's PR team thinks it does AND the Art will be cool.

- The opening is July 11!

New House!

Oh, finally, after announcing our imminent move and then having lots of proverbial wrenches thrown into our house-buying process, we finally seem to be really, really close to owning a new home!

Here are some pictures of our soon-to-be-ours-with no-more-mishaps house!

Did I mention there is a jacuzzi tub? Dreamy!
It is much smaller than our current home, but in a safer neighborhood and in relatively good repair. We also have a crazy view to downtown Pittsburgh and in the winter we will have a great view across the Allegheny River. There's a huge yard (for plants and compost and an outdoor stove and chillin') and there is a ton of green space across the street, so our kitties will be able to roam. It's good.
