We had a quick bite to eat at Corner Bakery, where I did a pasta combo - Caesar salad and Pesto Cavatappi pasta.
The pasta was an all-natural roasted chicken and cavatappi pasta tossed in a rich pesto cream sauce and sprinkled with toasted bread crumbs. I almost wanted to lick the bowl it was so good! I'll be back for more - or may have to see if I can find a recipe for it online to make at home. Now that's a better idea!
After dinner we headed over to Color Me Mine to paint. My first trip here was with Kristen and the rest of my bridal party for my bachelorette weekend, and I've been back once more with Chris to de-stress during the weeks leading up to the wedding. There are so many items to choose from, but I finally decided on two bowls which would be cute for candy dishes or other snacks/apps for a party.
Kristen taught me a painting technique for the sides that utilized paper towel cut outs and layering. I then finished off the rims with cute little dots.
One week later and here are my finished pieces. Look how different the color looks from when it was painted to after the firing/glazing.
Whenever I look at these bowls, I'll always think of my wonderful friendship with Kristen and remember to cherish every moment.
Have you ever painted your own pieces? What types of activities do you enjoy doing with friends?
