Last year, I became a part of the Big Brother Big Sister program. That’s where I was matched up with Samone! Next month will be our One Year Anniversary! Big’s and Little’s are matched up through a series of questions. As different as Samone and I are at age 48 and 13, we always have a great time together! One of our similar interest is art. Samone has a super creative side to her that I always find amazing. We’ve been to the Art Fair, we’ve done creative things at the house and we’ve talked about a few artsy things we’d like to do in the future.
Yesterday we had an awesome opportunity to get to paint together! The Big Brother Big Sister organizations does a great job of letting you know about activities that they sponsor throughout the city. When I saw an opportunity to paint together, I signed us up!
We went to the cutest little art studio downtown called Happy Tree’s Painting, where we were walked through painting a little Palm Tree Sunset picture. We were the first ones to show up, but there were about 20 other Big’s and Little’s there too!
We will be going back for sure!
Here’s the whole group! Samone and I are on the far left!
Here’s my painting……not too shabby for a first timer!
We had a great afternoon together and I can’t wait to back there and watch Samone paint a masterpiece!!
Here are yesterday’s eats……
Pumpkin Butter Oatmeal
Bacon Avocado Hash with Poached Eggs
I ordered this with no cheese and a dry English Muffin. They remembered the no cheese, but it came out with a buttered English Muffin, so I decided I didn’t need the bread anyhow and I skipped the muffin. This hash was awesome!
Salmon Caesar Salad
This is the exact same dinner that I had on Saturday night, but last night we ate at the restaurant, so I didn’t actually weigh my salmon like I did when I brought it home on Saturday. It looked about the same size to me! I did NOT eat the garlic bread in the background. I was challenged with buttery bread TWICE yesterday! I picked off the croutons.
