Change of Pace

We all love a night out with the girls.


(My beautiful friend Juli. I would like to point out that I was the only one that didn't dress up.  I didn't know…I was thinking paint + me = a mess)

Lets be honest….we all NEED a night out with the girls!

The usual plan is shopping, a movie, or dinner and drinks.

My friend Keri put together a night out that had us all meeting at an art studio and painting.

(our super sweet instructor and the painting we would do behind her)

There ended up being 14 of us that showed up for the class.

We first had drinks and appetizers and then started painting.

I was able to catch up with my sweet friend Juli and pretend we were Bob Ross…paint happy clouds…wispy, happy clouds.

I wish the painting would have been more challenging but it was still fun and it was definitely a change of pace.  

(one of the girls did another painting that was on the wall and it turned out great…I love that she did her own thing)

Wasn't that a great idea???!!!!

Today I stayed in my pajamas all day, created tons of new jewelry and watched Christmas movies with Kelly and the kids… was the most perfect, relaxing day!!!!

    Very cool! I am in the middle of planning painting lessons for ladies where I live; I will make sure to give them something challenging. 🙂 Looks like loads of fun!

    Sounds like a fun time…although painting anything would be a challenge to me! And everyone needs a “pajama day”. The girls & I usually spend the day after Christmas in our pjs:) Have a very Merry Christmas!

    How fun! Your painting is beautiful – any painting would have been challenging for me, but what a cool thing to do for an evening out!

    what a wonderful idea. i probably wouldn’t have dressed up either. i am not that neat when i create. i went to church in the morning and came home and put my pjs back on and watched christmas movies yesterday too. it was a great day.

    What a fun idea, I would have been a mess too! Staying in your jammies all day, a perfect way to spend time with the family! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas Jeanne!

    let me just say; you have to be one of the sweetest people, sending me what you did….and if I could be 1/2 the person you are my friend, I would be very much at peace…how blessed you are Jeanne to have friends that don’t want to hang out at a bar…….but actually inspire you –
    well, you inspire me…..

    What a great idea of spending time with friends in this way. That is what is so great about girlfriends- together you can have new adventures and when one is reluctant to try something new, the other can give her encouragement to try anyway! You can get braver with girlfriends!
    May you and your family have a wonderful and memory making Christmas together.
