Paint and Sip Los Angeles - Art Class and Wine Glass



Paint and Sip Studio  did more than meet my expectations.  My friend Angie and I had so much fun!  I have been telling everyone about this paint studio.  While telling them about it, I have to whip out my phone and show them a picture of my master piece.

I am not good at drawing or painting.  After this girls night out, I think I may have a new interest.  My son thinks I am so awesome and I should start painting and my daughter continues to infer that my eyes are deceiving me and my painting is not that good.  I think she is jealous she did not come.

The evening began with Angie complaining that I do not drink.  I did not care, because I had my apple cider.  If she wanted something to drink, she should have brought what she wanted.  She did question the BYOB, because her friends had gone to other painting studios and drinks were provided.  When we arrived at Paint and Sip she realized the other studios offered pictures that you trace and paint.  Now, I believe studios that  provide the drinks they are on a lesser scale if you ask me.  Who wants to trace a picture?

The group for our night was awesome and we had a great instructor.  He provided us with a great music selection.  He had something for everybody.  He was attentive, encouraging, detailed, and funny.  Every time he would tell me I was doing good, I wanted to say, "Stop fibbing, I know you see what I see."  By the time we left the studio and with his many compliments, I think we all left there feeling like true artists.


Our featured painting was Strarry Night over the Rhone.  Everyone was excited about painting this.  The class was so much fun.  There was a full on party in this studio, people were painting and sipping.  The music was getting to some of us as well as the drinks.  It was funny to watch the people that had too many sips.  I could not wait to see how their paintings were going to turn out.  They did surprisingly well.  Let me just mention they were not out of control they were just hilarious.

It seemed that we all could not wait to get to use the black paint.  When the time came, we were applauding, but quickly learned using black paint is hard.  Needless to say, our paintings turned out nice.  There were different variations of Starry Night over the Rhone, but in our eyes it looked just like the original.  Our proud instructor had us go to the lobby and take a group photo.  I just loved this part.

Here is my painting next to the instructors.  I bet you cannot tell which is his. LOL!!!


Can you believe all of this was covered in about three hours.  I had so much fun. I did not realize we had been there all that time.  I really enjoyed my experience at Paint and Sip.

The Amazing Miracle Cleanse Review - Colon Cleanse Tablets #AmazingMiracleCleanse





Be careful what you ask for.  My daughter has been asking for something to clean her colon.  I gave her a bottle of The Amazing Miracle Cleanse and she loves it, especially on the days she has eaten bad.

She did not expect for it to work so quickly.  The day she took it, she forgotten she had taken it and kept asking herself, "What is wrong with me?"  She did not feel uncomfortable, she noticed her body was being cleansed.  I asked her had she taken The Amazing Miracle Cleanse and that is when she realized, it really works.

If  you suffer from constipation, chronic fatigue, acid reflux, gas, bloating, difficulty sleeping, diarrhea, low energy, a flabby tummy, or skin problems, The Amazing Miracle Cleanse may be the product for you.  Before I go any further, it is important to drink lots of water.  

Amazing Miracle Cleanse does the following:



  • Makes the digestive system more effective, 
  • maintains regularity and prevents constipation, 
  • Increases energy,
  • Increases the body's absorption of vitamins and nutrients , Improves concentration, 
  • Helps lose weight, 
  • Increases fertility, and these are just some of the benefits.

The Amazing Miracle Cleanse formula will provide results within 12 to 24 hours in terms of helping rid the intestinal tract of excess waste, reduce bloating, help increase energy and may provide several pounds of weight loss within a few days. Included in the formula are effective natural laxatives, fiber, herbs which help soothe the intestinal lining and Acidophilus to help promote healthy bacteria levels in the intestinal tract. While this product may not be used on a daily basis beyond the 15-day cleanse period, it may be used occasionally for intestinal cleaning with the 15-day cleanse repeated 6 -8 weeks following the initial cleanse.


My daughter has not used the product on a daily basis.  She was going to do the 15 day cleanse, but she says she will.  I do not know her exact plan, but I do know, it does work and she likes it.

Freedom Friday - Embarrassing Stories

Have you ever been so embarrassed by your actions that you cannot wait to tell someone close to you? Well this week, I received a text from my daughter, while she was in class.  The text read," Sooo I just walked into class and farted.  Soooo embarrassing.  I literally just died."  My response, " OMG!  I always tell you about burping and passing gas.  You will learn."  Let me just tell you, I was cringing when I saw the word, "fart"  That is a word I just cannot say.  Moving on....

When I finally had a chance to speak with her later that day, she told me the class was in a lecture hall and she was certain that the entire first three rows heard it.  She said, she continued to walk and once she reached her seat she just laughed.  She asked, "What was I supposed to do?"  I told her, "How about say excuse me."  She was so embarrassed the thought of excusing herself was lost.

For years I have told her it is important to be a lady at all times.  She has always told me, that she will be a lady when she is out.  Well, if she had listened to me, she would not have embarrassed herself in class.  What a way to start of the school year.  She walked in with a bang!

Recently my mother and cousin stopped by I offered them Cosmos Creations.  They had not heard of Cosmos before, by the time they left they knew what it was.   I placed bags of the of all of the flavors of the snack size popcorn out.

Pirates Dinner Adventure Review - Things To Do With Kids Southern California



I scored major points with my son on his birthday!  I surprised him with dinner at Pirates Dinner Adventure and we had a blast!!!

As soon as we entered the building the adventure began.  We immediately joined in the cheering crowd that were awaiting there fearless pirate to lead them aboard the ship.  We were apart of the red team and were ready to go board our section of the ship.  Talking about lots of action.  This was fun!

As were being seating we were given jobs.  Wow...we were going to be apart of the show!  My son was the official flag waiver for our section.  He took his job very serious.


Initially, I was asked to assist our pirate during a competition, that would take place later in the show.   I had to back out, because my competitive side reminded me that I have no athletic ability and if I do bad at this, I would be upset and I had to consider the people in my section.  So, I asked my daughter to do it.  She eagerly step in. Our team did not when, but she did a great job.



Later in the show all of the people that were celebrating their birthday, were asked to come on the stage.  They were acknowledged and took an individual photo.  The show was very engaging.  I believe every family was included.  At some point a group of fathers were bringing up the sails of the ship and a large group of children were captives and another group of children took power of the ship.

While all of this was going on we were dining on a great feast of salad, soup, chicken, vegetables and Caribbean  rice.




My son had the kids meal, which included, his favorite, chicken nuggets and macaroni and cheese.  He also had mashed potatoes.  And he discovered he loves creamy vegetable soup.   He is not a big dessert person, but he loved the dessert as well, brownie a la mode.


This dinner was definitely an adventure.  You will not believe this but our pirate fought a hard battle and was the winner.  We were saved.  We had an amazing time and my son had a memorable birthday.
