I have also been promising to update about a fun activity that my friend Leslie and I participated in when she came up to Nashville recently. First of all, I should preface this by saying.... I do not have an artistic notion/bone/whatchamacallit in my body, so for this activity, I was a little nervous! The place is called Sips~N~Strokes. Here is the website. http://www.sipsnstrokes.com/ ... They have many locations, so you will have to visit to see if there is one near you. You basically go here to paint a picture from scratch. This ain't no paint-by-numbers junk. Sips-n-Strokes puts a calendar up every month, and they assist with a painting per night. So everyone does the same painting. Get it.... if you don't, go to the website. It's helpful. Here are the pictures we took from that night.
You can see the faint outline of a person... this is one of the things the staff does for you.
Here is a picture of Leslie and I before we got started.

Me, being silly with my canvas
Phase 1 of the project
The finished product... some of the staff used "bumpy" paint to accentuate the curves. It really defined the pictures raw edges!!

I hope you enjoyed this post.... It is now 10:30p, and I finally finished writing this. I had to give in to sleep. Yawn!!! Still sleepy! I just got home from church. I got to hold sweet, baby Rachel during services!! She was a precious angel the whole time and was able to catch a quick nap halfway through service. Can't wait to have kids of my own!! Hoping it is sooner rather than later!! Anyway, I hope this post finds everyone happy and shiny. Until next time, be blessed... S :)
This year, I decided to do things differently... mainly to see if I like it better. I decided that I wasn't being fair to the all the other shows and networks. So in order to give everyone a fair shake, I will be listing as much information as I can find about the main networks, ie ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, The CW, HBO, and Showtime. I will try to make it less confusing by grouping all shows together by network and then putting them in chronological order. So, lets begin....
Wait: First you need to know what all my little squiggles are going to mean. For instance, if you see this (*) behind a show, it means this is a new program. If you see this (~), it means I watch this show. Ok, ok... now I'm ready.

This is the reason we were freezing in the backseat!! Danny has to have the air on frigid at all times.

Maggie enjoying having company... especially her Gramama!
So these are the best photos from my summer stay-cation... I really enjoyed having Mama, Danny, Aunt Anna, Rusty(dog), and Bailey(dog) over for a few days in my new home! We got a lot of things done, and we had a great time... even if we did get a little grouchy with each other. That is just a part of it when you are with family!
Hopefully tomorrow, I will blog about where Leslie and I went last Saturday night. We had a blast.
Until next time, be blessed!! S ;)

Ok, sorry to cut this picture blog short, but there is something wrong with the photo uploader. It is taking too long!! I have way too many pictures to upload for today, so I will do this is pieces I guess. Until tomorrow... Be blessed!!
