Life Lately {September 2012}

The State Fair was from Thursday, August 23, 2012, through Monday, September 3, 2012.
To see my post all about that you can go HERE.

September was the start of fall for us which always means things slow down. I, for one, was looking forward to things slowing down a bit.

My sister Amie, joined Trajectories at school and was in a short play. So Kate and I went to watch and support her.

The short play was based off the Hunger Games. It was a funny twist on the book and Amie did such a great job.

I had my cousin, Tara's bachelorette party this night. I had so much fun and drank a wee bit (too much).

We started out at friend's house with apps and games.

After dinner, while waiting for our limo to arrive we enjoyed some drinks shots.

I went with my friend Falen to a painting class. I had never done something like this before and I really enjoyed it a lot.

We were going to paint 2 canvases. These were the examples that they had displayed on the wall.

What was fun is that it was at a little coffee shop in Burnsville that also served wine and food. So not only was it fun painting with friends and trying something new,but we had great food and wine with it. I would definitely do something like that again.

Today we had Tara's bridal shower. It was some of the same girls from the bach party, along with other friends and family members. We broke into groups and made veils with craft items.

We then had a delicious brunch and watched as the bride opened up all her lovely gifts. It was a perfect way to end the month and I was looking forward to her wedding in October.
