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!
And BB decided on the Caesar: Olive oil/garlic base with pesto chicken and topped with Caesar salad
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?
Those pizzas look awesome! I have always wanted to go to mellow mushroom! I hear so many good things about that place! How nice your friends go to meet BB! Im sure they loved him!
Love the pottery, the mug is so cute! I would make a pink mug ( of course, haha ) with some glitter and diamonds!
Mike and I are having a lazy weekend over here too! <3
And I can totally see that Diva mug in my head right now…with just the right amount of bling!
Enjoy your lazy weekend m’dear!
haha this frog is amazing! Right now id have OLIVES on my pizza, yum =]
Love olives on a pizza…but only black ones, never really been a fan of green. Eh, who am I kidding, I’m pretty sure if you put anything on a pizza and set it down in front of me, I would eat it without a word! Lol
cute :)! my roommates took me to a pottery design place last year for my birthday. It was so fun.. and super therapeutic, right? I kind of want to go back now.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)!
It WAS therapeutic! Haha, half the time we were all sitting there in silence just painting away…well, until I started annoying everyone with, “hey look up and say cheese!!” Lol
Love the pottery!!!
I am resting and trying to knock out a cold this weekend. Gonna be doing lots of reading and sleeping and TV watching. And..thanks to you…possibly ordering a pizza!! LOL. I like tomatoes and mushrooms on mine.
Haha, well I hope the rest and that cheesy, mushroom and tomato pie helps to knock out the cold! I was just thinking how lazy I feel today and how great it would be to just call and have dinner magically appear in front of me tonight, so I might just be joining you on the delivery for dinner scene!
This post just gave me a giant craving for pizza. I could so go for a mixed mushroom pizza with mozzarella and parmesan!
Love your KMB bowl! It’s going to make your oatmeal breakfasts extra special now. 😀
omg! i went to the mellow mushroom when i was a kid!
my parents said it was really good but i got sick a threw up..sorry for the mental image.
That looks like such a fun day! I love laid back days like that. Meeting up with old friends is always a good time!
That shiitake pie sounds pretty darn good to me right now. But I do love any mixed veggie pizza!
Roasted figs, caramelized onions, toasted walnuts, rocket leaves + a drizzle of balsamic = joy!
Pottery cuties 🙂
Oh my gosh, Lou! That sounds amazing! And I don’t even know what the heck rocket leaves are! Haha!
Awwwe, I love all the pottery! We have one of those places close to us, but I’ve never been before. I’ll have to change that!
