We are always looking for fun things to do as a group after work. Most of the time unfortunately I am unable to attend though because of not living local to the office like most do and I have the little one after work every day except one day when Kyle has off during the week. Don’t get me wrong, I love having Sophia after work because those few hours after work are the only one on one time I get to spend with her during the work week until the weekend comes around; but it just means I have limited opportunity to do team activities after work.
This month the ladies of the office decided to do a ladies Paint Nite. If you haven’t been living under a rock, you have probably at least heard of Paint Nite, if not attended one yourself. I managed to make it to paint nite this month and I’m so glad I did! From past photos of friends attending paint nite I thought there would be between 8-12 people in attendance; I believe there were more like 20-25! We may have been a bit smushed in, but everyone had a lot of fun. I was surprised at how well I was able to listen to the directions of the instructor. It is amazing to see how so many people can have the same reference painting and same instructor but all the paintings come out just a little differently, I love it! One of my favorite parts about the activity was that it allowed me to be creative but relax at the same time. It made me want to start up painting as a relaxing activity at home; though something tells me it wouldn’t be as relaxing not having someone talking you through the painting process and having to figure it out on my own.
If you are looking for a fun night out (for the ladies and/or gentlemen!), I highly recommend finding a Paint Nite near you! Best of all, you get to choose the painting you are going to do, just use the link below and type in your zip code, it will bring up all Paint Nite sessions within 5, 10, 20, 30 and 50 miles of your zip code, then you just choose which painting you want to do & sign up! Sessions fill quickly though so if you have a group I suggest signing everyone up at once so no one gets left out!
