Do you love groupons as much as I do?
Ok, actually i love groupon, living social, and then all of those fashion websites where you can get great deals (Hautelook, RueLaLa, Totsy, Ideeli).
I am pretty sure the only shopping i do in person is grocery shopping.
All of my clothes and home goods i get online.....but i do have to admit that since my financial situation has been rocked, my online shopping has been thwarted. It is utterly depressing.
Anyway, I got a groupon for Wine and Design in West Ashley about two months ago and while it is a fun "date" place, i decided to take Taylor for a little mother/daughter time.
I let Taylor pick whatever class she wanted......and about once a month they have a "paint your pet" class, which we figured would be perfect for us! And even though i had done the class before when i painted a picture of Ti (with Jana about 2 years ago...so fun!), we figured that Taylor could do a pic of Ellie and that i would do a pic of both of the dogs.
Here is Taylor's picture that she chose.....look at what a cute puppy Ellie was!!
And here is my picture......Ellie and Ti in all of their glory. :)
The class was about 3.5 hours long. I brought sushi and cheese and crackers to snack on. And some wine (for me) and some Arizona tea for Tay. I will have to admit that yes, it was a very "couple-y" class. 6 couples in total, Taylor and i were the only ones not married/dating. Apparently it is a popular date night activity. And of course Tay had to point that out...."thanks for taking me to a place for couples only."
Here is Taylor working on her picture....
And me starting mine.....
By the way, it is REALLY hard to paint a black dog bc when you try to make different shades of black, they turn grey. I think Tay did a great job though with Ellie.
And here is the final product......i am pretty sure you can tell i like to paint the pictures at Wine and Design.

If you haven't been to Wine and Design, I suggest you do. It is so fun and you bring your own wine/snacks and they have teachers to help you with the different paintings they have. They even have classes for kids!
