The Mario Lopez Moment

   A few posts back, I posted the picture that was sent to me by the folks over at “Daytime” in Tampa.  In case you missed it, they contacted me to send them our “Slater Onesie“, because they wanted to give him a little gift for the baby that he and his wife are expecting. To sum it up quick, I figured it was a scam, but went with it anyways.  Boy was I wrong.  They sent me a picture of him holding the onesie, and this week the video has been posted.  I took the video and cut it down because he was on there for 15 minutes.

I gotta say, it’s a surreal experience to watch A.C. Slater receive a gift from me, not only just to receive it, but to visibly see that he loved it!  My favorite part of this video is watching him show someone off camera in excitement while the show is wrapping up.

A Real Slater onesie!

  Its been a while since my last post, things have been busy and sort of hectic.  A little over a week ago, I was contacted by the producer of a TV show down in Florida called, “Daytime”.  I was a bit skeptical of the call due to the nature of the request.  They informed me that Mario Lopez was going to be coming on their show and that they wanted me to send them our “Slater Onesie” because he was expecting a baby soon.  I was pretty excited.  I grew up watching that show and I was a pretty big fan.

The producer told met that they would be taping the show ahead of time and then it would air in April.  I sucked it up and mailed out the onesie, hoping that it wasn’t some prank or scam.  Days later…it totally paid off!

Thanks to “Daytime” in Tampa!

This had has pretty much been the ultimate highlight so far since I started screenprinting.  I mean look at this….

WOO! I’m back. I’m trying!

    Its been a hectic couple of days!  Every day seems to be more busy than the next.  Sounds exciting right?  Sort of.  I’m burning out.  The shirt orders have been crazy, the overtime at my other job is non-stop, and the work around the house is never ending.  Last weekend, Nicole and I decided to scrap any house work and keep our schedule as laid back as possible so that we could take a day and do what pleases us most.  Shopping.  Yeah, yeah, I know.  Not a very manly activity right?  Whatever.  I love shopping, I love clothes, and I fully blame my mother.  I was her shopping companion all of the years growing up.  Hours of shopping for clothes, shoes, etc.  I was raised to enjoy this activity, find sales, combine coupons, and search for bargains.  We spent all Saturday having a shopping therapy day and it was just what we needed.  We took the portion of our checks that we would normally spend on the house, and we bought some much needed clothes for ourselves.  I managed to get myself a nice button down and a sweater for winter that is totally awesome.  One thing in particular that I saw at Urban Outfitters, was so awesome, so incredibly stupid, and hideous, I had to share it here.   I present to you this work of art (I should have purchased this):

    Anyways, now onto the house (I can’t think about my poor decision not to buy this).  The kitchen is exploding with life and Al is really making progress.  We ran into a few roadblocks that I was able to overcome.  First off, the pendent lights we ordered had recessed light adapters on them.  It wasn’t too big of an issue because I was able to just splice off the adapter and hard wire it into the ceiling.  I love how these lights turned out.

The back splash on both sides of the kitchen is now finished.  Al finished the other wall today and installed the rest of the remaining cabinets that we had to get shipped because the originals that we ordered were cracked.  Now all of the cabinets and the back splash are up, along with the microwave.  Next up is the floor and ordering the granite.  We cannot wait to get the appliances moved in.
