This Weekend

Finally I can say that I’ve taken advantage of my folks being away. This weekend has been fun, fun, fun (we so excited). Starting Friday night with dinner with a friend I haven’t seen in a while that went until 2 am. Saturday afternoon I got a call from the Vince store in Copley mall. Apparently, I won the $250 gift card giveaway from Thursday night’s shopping event. Yay me!

Saturday evening concluded with a bachelorette party, starting at my house and moving on to The Paint Bar in Newton, a limo with champagne, and multiple bars. The Paint Bar is a nightly art class where you paint and drink. Trust me, this is a winning combination.

The theme for the night was Boston’s iconic Citgo sign. But like I said, they let you drink while painting and I came up with a slightly different take on it.

I am so happy with my artwork. I never knew I was such a talented artiste!

Oh, and when I put on my apron at class, I found this in the pocket. To say that’s a big lighter is like saying Kate Moss was a slightly successful model.

Definitely a winning weekend!

    So many congrats on the Vince giftcard!  That is an awesome brand and I am sure you racked up! 

    Sounds like you definitely had a great weekend.  It’s always a good feeling, especially after a long work week!  Your painting is really cute!

    Yay! Free moneys!

    I have a painting I started last summer as my “summer project.” It’s now the summer after and it’s not even halfway done. I blame the internets…

    RE: high-waisted bottoms – I think it might have something to do with my torso being long (for someone who is short.) There’s a long gap between my bottom rib and my hips, so maybe the high waist isn’t hitting an uncomfortable spot? Also the reason I wear high-waisted bottoms as often as I can is because that Hermes belt is tiny, that’s the only place it actually fits on me! Haha. But I got it for relatively cheap, so there we go.
