|I was definitely going the right way during rush hour in Minneapolis!|
|The old lady and Kelly|
|Becky and (another) Kelly|
Aren't they adorable? So young and perky... I walked in and told the hostess I was looking for a group of young women with thin bodies, glossy hair, & translucent skin. She immediately directed me to the booth where these beauties were sitting. Did I call that or what?
After dinner we drove over to the Paint Pub to meet up with a some more MN bloggers...
What I was most looking forward to, besides hopefully not painting a picture that would turn out so poorly that they wouldn't let me take it home because they wouldn't want anyone to know where I got it, was meeting Michelle from You're my favorite today,
I've been reading her blog for a while and most days she makes me laugh out loud... and, yes, some days she makes me pee my pants just a little. (See told you I needed that sign from Walmart!)
|Yay! We met!|
We were the first two to belly up to the bar and get some wine... and by the time we had our second glass, my painting style (or lack thereof) was increasingly relaxed.
The group had chosen to paint a picture of the Stone Arch Bridge in Minneapolis with the downtown skyline in the background.
I thought the basic outline would be sketched in for us... Kati and I had done something like this when we were in New Orleans for Mardi Gras over her spring break. Those pictures were lightly sketched in for us... but not these!
What? Me? Paint a picture on a blank canvas? I could probably do an abstract version... but nothing that was supposed to actually look like a real thing.
Michelle and I shared our painting table with these lovely young things:
|Melissa and Dawn|
|A fine time was had by all...|
This was a great group of people to hang out with. Even though I'm old enough to be everyone's mother... well, except Michelle, I could be her (much) older sister... I had a great time.
On my long drive home I had to stop for gas. It took the person several minutes to finally get the pump flipped on for me. When I went in to pay I told her that I had a text that gives me $.05 off a gallon.
She looked at me and said, "Are you on pump seven?"
I turned to look at the pumps...
