Wine & Painting...Yes, Please...

Last night, I not only co-hosted but attended my first Wine & Painting Party.  It was so much fun!  I co-hosted with Jill & we had plenty of snacks & wine.  Our gal, Becky, shared this picture as our project:

My only fear about the pic was the birds but I was game to try it, it was fun & since it's still summer, a great summery piece for us ladies to do.

The name of Becky's company is: "I <3 Canvas". 
So cute.

Becky brought in all the materials - table covers, easels, canvases,
plates for the paint, paint, paintbrushes & cups for the water
to clean our brushes with encouraging quotes on each one.

 Jill & I wanted to keep it a semi-small gathering
to make it easier on Becky & to make sure that we 
had plenty of room to paint & such.
We decided that we would each invite five people & then did
end up with ten people including us.  A good number.

The whole crew - Kim, Jennifer, Jill, Amy, Cathi (I think?), Bri,
Vicki, Julie, Gladys & me.
All the paintings came out a lil different & there was 
something about each others paintings that we really liked that made
them different.  Paul's favorite was Amy's (he came in 
right at this point of the evening - he really liked her birds).  
My favorite was Vicki's.  I loved her fly!  :)

Here is a closeup of mine.
I wasn't too happy with my birds but 
for my first time doing this kind of painting, 
I cannot be too hard on myself.

This is a closeup of Jill's.
I love her big fat bird.  I giggled when I first saw
him but I really do like him.

Here is a closeup of Kim's.
This too was her first painting party
& I really like her swirly sun.

Have you attended one of these parties before?  What did you paint?  

I think that I'd like to have another one in the Fall & do a Fall themed one & then one in the winter (maybe for my birthday) & do a snowman one!  It was a whole lot of fun!  :)

Happy 34th Birthday To Me...

Since tomorrow is my 34th birthday, I decided in celebration of it, I should list 34 facts about me.  So, here we go:

1.  For lunch today, I had a Big Grab bag of Funyuns, a bottle of Dew & some mini-Snickers.  I'm all about my health today, it seems.  :|

2.  I bought my first pair of leggings today since I was about 12.  They are for working out & they were on clearance.

3.  Speaking of leggings, I so badly want the tattoo version of them.  You know how the complete coverage of the arm in tattoos is called a "sleeve", I started calling the complete coverage of the leg in tattoos a "legging".  Ha!

4.  I've seen every episode of Friends at least ten times.  Paul will turn it on when it's on TV & test me on what episode it is...I'm rarely wrong.

5.  I really, really, really want to go back to Vegas real soon.  I'm almost half-tempted to ask Paul if we can go there for our second anniversary.

6.  I pretty much have tiny panic attacks on a da…

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that tonight after work, I'm gonna pick up some din-din for my sister & I & then we're gonna play some old school Nintendo games on her projection screen.  Awhoo hoo!  I am so happy that my sister is back home!  :)

I am thankful...for Stan Lee.  I know that I've probably said it before but this guy is pretty dang amazing with the Marvel characters & stories that came to be from his mind.  I just wish that I had that kind of brain to think up all the crazy things/beings he does.

I am thankful...that in four weeks, I'll be in Las Vegas.  Just me & my hubby hopefully catching a few shows, winning some dough & having some good grub.  We'll for sure be seeing Love by Cirque & then I wanna get him tickets to either Cris Angel or Penn & Teller as a birthday gift.  I tried talking him into seeing Britney but he hasn't caved yet, I'm hoping that he will cuz if I get to see Britney, it would be amazing cuz I love her!

I am tha…
