dream + paint + wine = painted.


A few months ago, while we were training for our half marathon, my friend Jenn told me that she and her husband were going to start their own business. The plan was to open a paint bar. I had never heard of a paint bar. She explained that it's essentially a place where people can take a paint class, drink wine and create a masterpiece on canvas. Apparently the concept is quite big in Denver but there aren't too many in California.
So many people say that they are going to do things and never do. I knew this wouldn't be the case with Jenn. And she did it! Her paint bar opened this weekend. On Friday night, they had a private party for friends and family. Unfortunately, A was working so I brought my girlfriend Melissa as my date.

We had so much fun! Painting a nice picture was easier than I thought it would be. Despite the fact that I have zero artistic ability. I'm serious. I can't even draw a stick figure. But yet I managed to produce this beautiful painting that I'm very proud of.


If you have a paint bar in your area, I highly recommend going. It makes a great date night or girl's night out. I think I found my new hang out! 

Did you try anything new this weekend?

P.S. Are y'all on vine yet? If you're an instagramaholic like me, you'll love it. It is a new social media app (released last week from Twitter) that allows you to create short, beautiful looping videos and share them with friends. Just up on there and see what all the fuss is about. You can follow me at user name Jessah.

We just opened a Paint Bar here in Santa Barbara not too long ago! I went once over summer and it was SO fun!! Definitely something I want to keep doing!

I just got Vine, and I definitely think I'm gonna love it since I love Instagram so much. Speaking of which, can't believe I wasn't following you before, but found you now :)

This looks like so much fun! I too cannot draw for the life of me, so I wonder how it would work for me! I will have to check for something like this in my area!
