Do you ever have trouble planning a get-together with your friends? Is it just us? I'm guessing not. We love getting together for a Girls Night, but have trouble getting our schedules coordinated for a night out. For whatever reason, we have found these painting classes in town a great thing to do together. (And they have Groupon's all the time. Bonus!) The classes are three hours and designed for those non-artistic people, like myself. For a fee, they provide all of the materials and instruction. You show up, paint away, and leave with a finished canvas. Awesome, right?!
I think this is our fourth class. I feel like we are improving! If nothing else, its a super fun time and a great excuse to get together with these fabulous ladies!
I love how different, yet similar they are. I think it shows our personalities in the art (although hard to glean from the photo).
My girlie and I took a trip to the Magical Forest! Put on to support Opportunity Village, it features a walking path of lighting and decorations, along with food, a train, miniature golf, giant slide, carousel and this year a 3-D elf house.
Since it was just her and I, we traveled at our leisure. We had wrist bands to ride anything we wanted, but the lines were LONG. This was the first year she was ok with skipping the rides because of not wanting to wait in line. She thought I was bothered by that, thinking she wasn't "fun" anymore. I told her it made her even "cooler." Once I told her I didn't really want to wait in line for 30 minutes for a 30 second ride either, she had a big smile on her face. It reminds me that you never know someone's point of view until you ask. It's always good to ask.
The pictures aren't great because I just had my iPhone, and it was dark, but you get the idea. It was FUN!

Christmas cookies are my favorite! I love sending them to friends and family and imagining the smile they have when they open the package.
It's our iPhone-selfie showing off my new glasses. Not the best lighting, but it sure makes me smile when I see it!
I'm loving taking pictures of the Christmas decorations! Something different, pretty and entertaining for me. :-)
