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…

Weekending/Musical Monday…

I've decided to start linking up with Biana on reporting on activities of the weekend.  If you would like to join, hit her up!
So, on to my weekend...
Friday - the husband & I went out to dinner and for drinks with our friends, Ben & Christa.  & then headed back to our house for some games.  A nice quiet evening with some great people.
Saturday - my cousin, Jennifer, & I decided to take a last minute trip to Appleton for some shopping & such.  We had her youngest with her & he was perfect!  We had so much fun & while at Scheels, I educated him about Bucky Badger because he kept going over to the Wisconsin Badger stuff & by the end of our trip in that store, he was calling out "Bucky!"  My heart could not be prouder.

When we got back into town, Paul & I went out for a couple glasses of wine & then headed back home to relax & watch Baby Driver.  You can read my review here.

Sunday - typical Sunday, spent the morning hanging out in be…
