This summer has been hectic for us. Great, but busy. My class for work ended a few weeks ago (yay!) but I am taking another one that starts next week (boo!). So I have been squeezing in fun activities before I get sucked into school work again.

I had a girl’s night out a couple of weeks ago and it was so much fun! We went to Wine and Design. You bring your own wine and they provide everything else; canvas, paint, brushes and an instructor. You sip wine and laugh with your girlfriends while you attempt to paint the assigned painting of the night. It is a lot of fun! The night we went was an abstract painting night, which is good because I am sure it is a lot more forgiving! 😉

My husband, Randy, is the sweetest guy I know. When I came home, he bragged about how awesome my painting was and how we needed to hang it up. God bless him! 😉 Note: I will not be hanging this painting up in my home! It is a little too Dr. Seuss for me! 😉  It was just a fun girl’s night out! I would love to do it again sometime.

Last weekend was filled with volunteer work. We helped with the United Way Golf Tournament all day on Saturday. On Sunday, we went to a volunteer appreciation dinner for Blue Ridge Humane Society (for those of you who don’t know, I am a board member for this group). It was held at a historic building in Hendersonville called, The Cedars. It was a beautiful house! But I adore everything vintage. The trees around the house are huge and beautiful. And inside it is filled with antique furniture and decor. I wore my vintage inspired dress and shoes from modcloth.com. I love this outfit!

Also last weekend, Randy and I had a much needed date night. We aim to have a date night out, at least, once a month. But it had been probably 2 months since the last date night out! It was so nice to go out for a romantic meal with my husband. It was lovely!

I wore one of my favorite shirts from BCBG. It is so feminine and romantic!
