An artsy weekend



There is nothing like art, wine, and a few close friends to make a miserable weekend bearable.

Despite being sick, I managed to sneak in a little bit of fun.

Kerrie, her boyfriend, Rian, and I went to a local art museum this weekend to see Kerrie's art history professor give a presentation.

Beforehand we had a lovely picnic with hummus, salad, fresh fruit, and red wine.

It was divine.







Afterward, we spent a couple hours unwinding at a nearby hookah bar. Delicious!

...and then I spent the rest of the weekend in bed with a box of Kleenex and bottles of pills. Ugh. (I was recently diagnosed with severe bronchitis and seasonal allergies).

What did you do this weekend??

How fabulous! I utterly adore your dress. And I'm envious of your trip to a hookah bar, they're so much fun xoxo

Heather Rose said...

Hey, lady. Art is ALWAYS good for general well-being, or at least I think so.

Just wanted to stop by and say that I'm your blogger over borders partner, and I have NOT forgotten you. I've just been all kinds of busy/insane lately. I've got my item that represents me, but I still need to make my list and send it to you. I'm going on vacation this weekend, and I am SO going to get that done. ^_^

I'm so glad you had a fabulous time, Jennifer - despite being sick, of course.

My weekend was blah as it involved having my taxes done. Why can't they make it where you only have to have your taxes done once every ten years?! :)
