Painting Party...

In honor of a bestie's birthday, I made my first trip to Sips N' Strokes to paint a picture.  Rachel and I were VERY unsure of our painting abilities; however, we were pleasantly surprised with our finished products.  Here are a few pictures from the night...

The supplies...

The paint...

The sips (Sparkling Grape Juice=keeping it real)...

The girlie napkins I just HAD to pack for the event...

Early on in the process.  I was nearly spanked by a painting supervisor for making my background too red.  I'm not a pink fan, so I wanted to change things up a bit.  This is slightly frowned upon, apparently. 

Almost done...

The birthday girl's almost-complete painting...

My finished masterpiece!!!

Rachel's masterpiece!!!

DISCLAIMER:  This is the second shot Andy took.  He commented after taking the first picture that I "looked weird."

Back home to have Andy take a girls' picture.  Thanks for being born, Rachel!


Andy's painting!  Have I never mentioned he paints on the side? 

NOT!  Do you know my husband at all?  I couldn't resist this print that I spotted two seconds after walking into the painting studio.  I just had to have it.  My thought process:  Any Alabama decor that I actually like, I MUST buy so that I can stomach Andy's eventual "Bama Room."  Got to think on your feet, ladies...
