Guess what guys?
We finally made it to FRIDAY!!
I swear this week goes down in history as one of the craziest weeks ever…definitely a TGIF kind of day for me!
So a couple of week’s ago, I told you guys that BB and I were heading to Nashville to meet up with my pottery painting buddies Christine and Donny. Well, we finally got to pick up our finished products last weekend and I’m so excited to show you…but let’s not get out of order here, because before the pottery came…
Just like last time, we met at our favorite pizza parlor, Mellow Mushroom and ordered three pies altogether.
Mine was the Philosopher’s Pie: Olive oil/garlic base with steak, portobellos, kalamata olives and cheesy goodness.
Donny & Christine ordered the Mighty Meaty: Red sauce base with lots-o-meat!
It was…interesting to see him eat it! Lol
I could NOT get over the little advertisement on our table for the “Holy Shiitake Pie”…it STILL cracks me up!
And yeah, remember my last tip calculating fail? Well, seems like nothing’s changed there…I still can’t add or subtract!
After we had our fill of pizza, we packed up some to-go boxes, loaded ourselves in the car, and headed to Brushfire Pottery Studio for some painting!
As you can see, we had a lot of fun…and you can also see that I tend to get a little snap happy while waiting for coats of paint to dry! 😉
With some meticulous brush strokes, BB’s amphibian friend went from
rags lilly pads to riches!
I fashioned a KMB bowl to match my mug that I made last time and Christine used some tracing paper and made a pretty stellar recreation of Sonic the Hedgehog for her husband Donny while he painted her a travel coffee mug (which I failed to get a picture of) to celebrate her recent award:
Associate Doctor (Veterinarian) of the Year…in ALL of Tennessee!
So so proud of her!
Posing with Pottery!
We left our pieces there that day to get fired up in the kiln and went back last Sunday to pick them up…one of our many stops in our fun-filled trucker hat weekend!
Look how shiny! I only wish I had remembered to put the polka dots on the bowl so that it would match my mug better…ugh, 27 years old and my memory fails me more and more each day!
What I DO remember is how much fun it was getting together with my friends AND getting to introduce them to BB for the first time…we already have plans to go again in a couple of months.
I mean, c’mon…I HAVE to finish my collection of KMB dishes!
And with that, I’m out! BB will be here in a bit and with rain in the forecast, our plans are the exact opposite from last weekend…there is nothing more I’d like to do than stay in my sweats for the next 2 days and do absolutely nothing!
What are you up to this weekend?
If you could have ANYTHING on a pizza right now, what would it be?
