Paint, Balls, and Birthdays...

This weekend I think we were home maybe, ten hours, including sleep, which would explain why today I have a major case of the Monday blues and feel as though a truck hit me.

Friday night, Jason and I channeled our inner arteest at Simply Art Studios, in Oldsmar. It was a team building night with people from work, so I got to hang with some folks outside the office, that I wouldn't normally see. It was a lot of fun!
Jason "painting".

My finished work of art.


Saturday was USF alumni night at Tropicana Field, and nine of us decided we'd get together, and tailgate in humidity that is bound to melt your face off and drink, therefore getting even more hot; why we do this every year, I'll never know. Though it is always a good time. Everyone just looks like Hell because we're dying in the sun. But we won, so I'll take it!

Classy Rays fans, clearly.

Sunday, my lovely momma turned another year older younger, and we took her to...another Rays game. The stadium was sold out, and we were packed in there, but what the birthday girl wants, she gets. Not before we had an unwanted conversation about politics.

Me: Sam Fuld is cute.
Mom: You know he supports Obama, right?
Me: I didn't ask who he voted for, just thought he was cute, mom.
Mom: Well he is quoted as saying that Obama is one of the most influential people of his time.
Me: I'll make sure when I have leave Jason for Sam {because that is going to happen}, not to bring my new baseball player boyfriend to your house to discuss politics, deal?

Then we hightailed it to the parentals for a birthday dinner made by the sisters. Not really healthy, after I just shared about weight loss struggles, but for mom's birthday, one meal, I think that is more than okay.

Linking up with Sami.



  1. Looks like a busy weekend! Can't believe you where only home for 10 hours all weekend! Ah!

  2. I've been wanting to try that type of art class. A bunch of my girlfriends go fairly often.

  3. What a fun weekend! I have done Painting with a Twist several times, love it. So lucky that you got to catch two amazing Rays games!

  4. Love the way your painting came out! ;-)

  5. Your painting looks gorgeous. I did something similar over Memorial Day weekend, it was called "The Tipsy Paintbrush"... in my life though, it was more like "The Drunk Paintbrush". Your painting looks great.

    One of the things I hate about summer is the damn humidity, it definitely sucks when I am wearing my foundation, haha! I can only imagine how you guys felt.

    Have a fab week!
