Spending lots of time with friends and I am officially a Wedding crasher…

Well, when I moved to California, I did not know that so much time spent on my Art was going to change as much as it has. I lived in Arizona for 10 years and made only  a handful of friends …. but spent so much time doing my Art and lots of time at home. Now I spend time with friends and family and less and less time on my Art. Discovering  Facebook , made me reconnect with some old friends. Its kind of funny how some friends you come back to and pick up where you left off and some friends you  realize you have nothing in common with  anymore. I am so lucky to have the old ones back in my Life and a whole batch of new Friends…. Wow….. makes me so happy. That being said, I still love to do Artsy things and wish I had more time to do both, but it is either one or the other… or no sleep and sometimes I choose no sleep. Ok, now for the Wedding crashing part. Yes, I am a official Wedding crasher! Went out with a girlfriend last night.. we were not feeling the Sushi place full of 20 somethings so we changed our location to my Husband's work. He is a manager at a great Restaurant at the beach.. Well they were having a Wedding under a tent outside on the Beach.. catered by the Restaurant.. My husband told me to go and check it out because they had about a half hour left before they shut the Party down.. I head in the place with my friend and before you know it We are dancing to Footlose..(oh no they didnt just play that song) while hugging Grandma! They had no clue we were not part of the party…. ! We left with cupcakes and we are probably in the Wedding Reception photos dancing with Grandma! This one is for the books…. Good Times. 

I did a little recycled Art last week….. The first one is a Coffee Can turned into a Halloween Candy container and the other is a shoe box turned into a Trinket box for Darianne… The adorable vintage cow creamer was a find at a Garage sale for 50 cents. The other picture is of a page in Dariannes book…. hopefully this will be a Art Week for me. And if it isnt then you know what I am up to…. Crashing Weddings…….He he……IMG_4730

    Funny you said about crashing a wedding, I did too this past Saturday. I went with friends to a VIP Spa opening and we were like eh lets go to the wedding all 6 of us went upstairs and started to dance:) All was good till there was a witchy matron of honor that insulted my gay men picking on them about that. Lil does she know they give tiffanys for wedding presents :-p. Amazing fun though and yes it is a club that you and I are both now proud members 😀

    Hope all is well!

    Hmm, Maybe someone is going to say .”who are you dancing with Grandma?” And she will say, you know, your Aunt Monica’s daughter!” heheehe And what fun was had by all! 🙂
    Perhaps a balance has come into your life…. friends and family are essential!
    Say, I remember thinking that the cheerleaders skirts were too short! But know, to see the length on your outfits and TODAYS scant of a ruffle your skirts looked down right long!
    Love the coast of California, I am so glad that you are all loving it there. My very best wishes and prayers for your Grandma, so glad you are already there, close.
