This Weekend...

This weekend I...

...Went to Bottles & Bottega for the first time for a little wine and painting with some of my lady friends.  We determined that painting is definitely easier when there's wine involved ;)
...Grabbed dinner at Ruxbin with Jeff and after getting my own set of oysters (because, if we shared, "we would totally ruin the progression of flavors."  Ruxbin may be a tad pretentious) determined I actually like them now!  #grownup
...Ordered from Ameritalia again.  It's only been open two weeks and I think we've been there four times already.  We maaaaay have a new favorite spot ;)
...Checked out a hotel downtown where we might do our room block & getting ready suite for the wedding.  Normally I would have just checked it out online, but after counting how many people would have to be in the suite while we're getting ready, I had to make sure it would be big enough.  While I was there I got to check out the gorgeous outdoor space on the river that will be an outdoor bar by the time of our wedding.  Can someone say afterparty?
...Met up with some friends for a quick drink at Bureau Bar, which I previously didn't know existed.  Yay for a new cute bar in our neighborhood!
...Since Jeff decided he's a futball fan now, watched an awful lot of soccer with him.  The whole time all I could think of was this video with Jason Sudeikis.

I hope you had a good one!

  1. Your painting came out so good!

  2. Sounds like such a fun weekend!! Your painting is so gorgeous!


  3. We have something similar called 'Paint and Sip' in my area that my friends and I really want to go to. It looks like so much fun!


  4. isn't wine & painting just the best? I did that a few months ago for a friends bday and as I drank more sangria my lighthouse definitely got more crooked ;)

    xo, Maddy

  5. I've only been to Bottle and Bottega once... for a friend's bachelorette party where we painted a naked man. It was hilarious particularly because of how awkward we all were. I suppose that painting trees would be less awkward but just as fun assuming there's wine involved.


  6. Oh my gosh we were talking about the bachelorette parties, my former boss said all of her friends did it for their bachelorette parties and it was always funny to see the paintings at the end because some of them would "ken doll" their paintings haha. I bet I would be super awkward and need looooots of wine for that ;)

  7. Hahaha that's too funny! As I drank I just kept adding more and more paint, it took SO long to dry.

  8. You should! I've always thought about going and am glad I finally did, now I want to go back!

  9. Thanks Angela! I wouldn't quite say gorgeous, but definitely good enough to hang (in an area without good lighting haha)

  10. Ha thanks Alyssa! I thought it was really good after several glasses of wine, now I may be changing my mind hahaha.
