This Weekend...

This weekend I...

...Went to Ladies Night at Bottles and Bottega for a friend's birthday, where we painted a nude male model, which was a hilariously awkward experience. There was lots of giggling, lots of wine, and now I have a painting that I'm not exactly sure what to do with...
...Stopped by Gaslight (formerly Mickey's) after our painting sesh, where, oddly enough, I've never been before without my mother. The other bar patrons loved all of our artwork ;)
...Had our Friendsgiving party, I can't believe it's that time of year already! We brought cauliflower mash, which thanks to a new recipe I found that involves a turnip (I promise to share soon!) is one of my favorite side dishes. This year there were not only 44 people, but also a puppy and a baby. Looks like we're growing up.
...Literally spent hours at UPS trying to pick up a package. People steal our packages sometimes, and so the UPS man responds by refusing to leave things without a signature, which meant I waited for over two hours to pick up a $20 package from Forever 21. Maybe I should start shopping in stores...
...Went to a big group dinner at Bistro Dre, where I'm pretty sure we ordered everything on the small plates menu and finished about 12 bottles of wine. I thought it was really good (especially the pear spinach salad!) but that might be the wine talking.
...Went to a little house warming party at my little sister's new place in the 'burbs. Still can't believe she and her hubs bought a house! She's such a cute little adult.

I hope you had a good one!

  1. Sounds like you had such a nice weekend filled with wine and friends. That is annoying about the UPS package, though it is nice that the guy cares enough to want a signature.

  2. Omg. I can only imagine how awkward that must have been! I don't think I would be able to do it because I'd laugh too much! lol


  3. Friendsgiving sounds like so much fun! And I'd be really annoyed about the UPS thing...

  4. Sounds like you had an amazing weekend! Wine and Painting with girlfriends is right up my alley haha!
