I went to a pottery place with my friend Harper today. I wanted to make a flower pot for my mom for Mother’s Day. I figured I would try giving her a unique gift that none of my other siblings would be giving her this year. I looked at a few pottery places on the internet. I found some great places we could go to; however I am a bit on the dumb side when it comes to pottery. I wasn’t aware that the actual act of making pottery was really hard work and involves 8 weeks worth of classes. If you have seen the movie It Takes Two, then you would understand why I thought pottery was easy considering the last time I watched it I was 10. Fortunately, I found a place where we could just paint pottery.
There was so many different shapes and sizes of pottery to choose from. Luckily, they had a perfect size flower pot for me and Harper picked a large seashell and tiny vase. There was so many different colors of paint to choose from, which is like my worst nightmare because I am terrible at making choices. Haha. All of the colors were so pretty so I can’t really complain.
Two things I realized while painting:
- I will never be a professional painter.
- I am not surprised I always got a “B” in art class.
It ended up being a lot of fun. We were able to drink wine and listen to some good music. I totally recommend doing this with friends or family. Painting is super relaxing so I understand now why lots of people have been enjoying adult coloring books. I am hoping to go back soon to make a cute bowl to have for oatmeal or pasta.
Once, we left pottery we headed over to a mexican restaurant to grab some drinks and obviously guac because no man gets left behind.
I ordered a salad to try to counteract the amount of guac I was consuming. I also enjoyed this tasty drink called a Strawberry Fields.
I cannot remember what exactly was in it but it was strong, which is why you will not being seeing a picture of my salad. I was like a talking machine once I had my first sip so taking anymore pictures wasn’t really on my mind.
Enjoy your weekend! 🙂
