Pottery, Pizza & the redneck vehicle gets jazzed up.

So, it seems life is moving in fast motion. I’m having a hard time keeping up with stuff lately. Well, actually, I am keeping up with most stuff….just not blogging.
Anyhoo….here is a recap of Lo’s first 19th birthday.
If I can’t make each post about ME…then I will add ME to it. Right Mark?
Admit it, I was having a good hair day. 
And Lo, well she can wear a bandana like Aunt Jemima and still look wonderful. If she weren’t related to me, I’d dislike her for that.
Plus, she loves pancakes…and Syrup. 
When I asked her what she wanted to do for her birthday, she wasn’t sure. So I suggested a place that we like to visit at least once a year....Earth and Fire.  Her face lit up and she said Really????
Really.
Getting ready to create a picasso or something normal and less valuable.

Mom; making dreams come true daily. Or at least once a year. 

You pick out a piece of pottery. {naked} and paint. And pray that it comes out ok.
We have a cabinet full of stuff that we prayed over….and each piece is very special. 
Years ago, they used to charge you for the piece and your time per hour. That became an issue since some of us were more meticulous than others. And by ‘some’, I mean LoLo. 
Now, they just charge you for the piece and a flat rate for time. Which is good….since we were there for over THREE hours.

BUT…I knew this going in…and I took my sweet time. 
I made another pasta bowl to add to my collection of pasta bowls.
Funny, since I don’t eat pasta.

I’m more of a pizza girl, and there is a lovely little italian place across the street from the lovely little pottery place.
We had a slice sitting outside watching the dock. {sitting by the dock Of the bay}

I’m no meteorologist, but even I knew it was going to rain.
 And it did. It rained SO hard that we had to stay put and eat ice-cream. The law.
The pizza/rain/ice cream law. 
On our way home from pottery painting and pizza….the Coach asked us to stop and pick up his Jeep from the guy who we give $ to keep the upkeep the vehicles. 
The good news: The jeep has new seats, new seat belts and a working gas gauge, and some other stuff that might be important.
Aren’t you thrilled?
The bad news is it was raining during most of the drive home. 
And that little top up there is only mesh.

Needless to say, they were a bit wet after this little adventure….and I was driving aside them in the comforts of my fully enclosed car. 
Another law you might not be familiar with; Moms can’t get wet while driving. 
This is getting lengthy. Later I will share with you our finished pottery pieces and the evolution of the famous birthday Peanut Butter Pie. It’s more of a de-revolution.
Riveting stuff.  What will you do between now and then??
xoxoxo

  2. So glad it rained for y'all so you HAD to get ice cream! Looks like they did a good job on their plates, but why didn't you show us a picture of your bowl?

  3. You both (I should say, all three of you) look wonderful! Suz, you are too young to have given birth to those girls! Where did you get those cute shorts? Your outfit is adorable.When you say you get \”a piece of pottery {naked} and paint,\” I am pretty sure you mean that the POTTERY is naked, but just wanted to confirm…for all of your readers who might be tempted to try this at home. I love what you're creating there, BTW! It's wonderful that the girls enjoy this with you – what a gift of time spent creatively together!That jeep? Wow. Where does Coach drive it, now that it's got new gear? It's too heavy duty to be a beach buggy. Is there such a thing as a beach buggy anymore?

  4. Hold up. Hold up. \”You pick out a piece of pottery. {naked} and paint.\”You all were NAKED when you picked out your pottery. Is that a law, too?!;)Looks like so much fun. I assume my invite is in the mail?!

  5. You were having a good hair day : )I am glad you don't interject yourself into every single post. I get SO bloody sick of people that do. Give me a flippin' break. I like parents that actually talk more about their kids than they do themselves. Especially if your kids are little. Now, you have more of an excuse since the kids are growing up and they probably aren't with you 24/7 : )I can't wait to see your bowl. I LOVE the girls. They are so creative. I love your whole family. I am moving in. Only if you promise to make your posts about me though and NOT about you!

  7. The jeep is cool and I love that law about rain, ice cream and pizza…although I was raised on pasta and would die without carbs…so I will eat enough for the both of us :)Between now and then…I will be recovering from 123 K's I did on Saturday.

  8. Did someone say Peanut Butter Pie?!!?What a fun way to spend the day. I've always wanted to go to one of those places (there are several around here) but it's just never worked out. I can't wait to see how your bowl turned out. And, I think you should just use it as an ice cream bowl!

  10. The girls look right at home in that jeep! Did you have to give them a leg up so they could get in? There is never a good excuse to pass up ice cream. Never. But good thing there's a law.

  11. What I'll do is look forward to the next post. It looks as if Lo had a great birthday, although it's a shame the 'law' made you stay on the dock and eat ice cream.

  17. FUN! I've never heard of one of those pottery places. Probably spend all my time there, so it's probably a good thing! I've been thinking a lot about Peanut butter pie lately–was going to make one today but didn't want to share with all the kids and their friends. I know, bad me….
