Amanda's Bachelorette Party

Last night was fun! My good friend Amanda is getting married this Saturday. So last night was her bachelorette party. It is always fun getting together with her & some mutual friends of ours that i don't see too often.

First, we met at Corks 'n' Canvas for some painting fun! Corks 'n' Canvas is fairly new here, and i'm constantly hearing of friends who have gone & who really enjoyed it. Basically you pick a painting to do & you all paint it. The employees teach you how to do it. Amanda picked a poppy pic & i was excited! My kitchen & den colors are red anyway & i have a giant poppy painting that my aunt did too! I was hoping to do a fabulous job - but I am not a good painter at ALL. I used to be able to draw well with pencil, but i haven't done it in ages. I can do great lettering. But that's about it! So yeah - my painting will not be hanging in our house! It was a lot of fun though!!

After that, we went to The Melting Pot for dessert! I'd never been to The Melting Pot, though it's been here for years & everyone loves it. It was nice! Romantic atmosphere. I think Brad will have to bring me one day. :) But it was very quiet & had great service. In case you've never been, it's a fondue restaurant. We did the chocolate... we had three things of chocolate to share - "turtle", "bananas foster" & one called "sex kitten", ha! Appropriate, i think... i mean it was a bachelorette party! The "sex kitten" one was just white chocolate with crumbled up oreos & i forget what else. I really stuck with the banana's foster & turtle. AMAZING! We had so much fun! We went around giving Amanda "bedroom advice" which somehow turned into "embarrassing honeymoon moments" & there was a LOT of laughter!

I can't wait to see Amanda get Married!!! :)

  5. Sounds like a real fun time and I don't think your painting looks any worse than the others. It turned out waaaay better than I would have done. Me and art don't go together at all! Actually I cheated in college. I had to take an art class and I had to do a project that I knew I would totally suck at and the girl that lived across the hall from me just loved being artsy so she did it for me and I passed hahaha.
