Is That a Monet?

On Tuesday night, Leslie, Emily and I went to our very first paint party (you may be familiar with the term "sips and strokes"). You pay $40 and all of the materials are provided. You can also bring in your own wine and snacks to enjoy while painting.
Here's my finished product
And of course, the infamous group photo. We had a great girl's night out. You don't have to be Picasso to go. The instructions are simple and our instructor was willing to help if you needed her. If you have something like this in your town, I highly recommend going.

If you live in the Memphis area, we went to GoGirl Art at Buckley's Lunch Box. These classes fill up FAST!

OMG, you're in the Memphis area? Wish I would have known that when I was in Memphis two weekends ago! Might start being a frequent Memphis-trip-maker... maybe/possibly new boo is from there. I'm gonna see if I can't schedule one of these the next time we're around!
