Fun Date

A couple of weeks ago, hubby and I went on a date night. There really weren't any movies out that we wanted to see so we had a wonderful dinner at Red Lobster where we discovered that we aren't really missing out on anything by not ever having tasted Lobster. We splurged and Tim had some in his dish. It really didn't taste that great. Now we can check that off the list.

Anyhoo, on the way home we saw this place called CeramiCafe so we decided to check it out. Well, we had blast. It was one of the best dates we've had in a really long time. The idea is that you can choose from many many different ceramic pieces, in all kinds of price ranges, and you can then paint, decorate, adorn them in any way that floats your boat. We settled on a couple of cereal bowls. You should know that I am so NOT an artistic person but it turns out that no matter what you do it seems to turn out cute. So here's a picture of our finished product after being glazed and fired. As Lauren would say "Don't be hatin' on our mad skillz"

That DOES look like fun!

There's just something about settling down for a bit and using your creativity.

Those are awesome!! I love doing creative things... I wonder if there is something like that here in our area...

That is so neat! I wish our ceramics place kept later hours so we could do that for our date night!

That sounds like a great date!! I disagree with everything looking good. That Raiders bowl leaves room for the argument. LOL Also darling pics of Blake!!

Looks like fun. There is a place kind of like that here that I've been wanting to go to. I might just have to do that sooner than later!

Those look great! It's funny that you mentioned Lauren, because that's the exact same thing she and Ted did on their last date together the night before he left for Seattle! :)

I wish I could have been with you at Red Lobster...you know, to help out with the consumption of that lobster. It is my very mostest favoritest food on the face of the earth! :0

How fun! I love that it's just DIFFERENT. We always seem to do dinner and then come home and watch a dvd.

The Raiders AND the Ducks?!
Man, that must make everything taste twice as bad!!! Lolz, you know I'm just playing...little friendly sports rivalry here
Can you just hire someone to paint it for you? Really, I'm no good at that stuff. But your post really makes me want to try it anyway!
