10th Anniversary Date

Eric and I celebrated our 10th anniversary on the 23rd.  Where has the time gone?  Several weeks ago I was browsing groupon and saw an interesting deal on Paint and Party.  Each day, there is an artist that gives loose instructions how to duplicate his particular painting for that day.  One added bonus, it's a bring your own beverage.  They supply the bottle openers, ice, and glasses.  We picked the Saturday after our anniversary even though Eric wasn't completely into the painting for that day.  Eric and I got there a little early since we left with plenty of time.  We got our beverage open, aprons on, and waited to see how our two hours of painting would turn out.

Me ready for some wine!
Here are my pictures step by step.  We though it would be fun to stop after a portion of the painting and record our progress.

adding some finishing touches.
 I wish we would have taken a picture of us with our painting side by side as well as with the painting from the teacher.  It was amazing to see the variation in the class.  Eric and I stuck with the teachers instructions but most people just did their own color palate.  We had a great time and I would highly recommend it for anyone that likes to paint.  They even have birthday parties available there (granted, a little pricey).  I'm hoping to see another groupon pop up in the future.  It would be fun trying to paint another picture.  Now where to put our paintings?  P.S.  Eric's painting looks so much better than mine!

Congrats on 10 years. I went to a fundraiser at a place called canvas and cocktails, just like your place. We had a fun time too.
