Sum Up Sunday // Creativity & Beer

Apparently, a favorite past time of mine is drinking.  Over the last weekend I went to a Beer Festival where I sampled some lovely beer then was a vendor at an art fair that preceded a trip to our favorite bar.  Apparently I appreciate alcohol too much.  Don't give me much crap though, I seem to be fairing quite well.  I blame it on the fact that one of my good friends is a home brewer & beer enthusiast.  He knew the guy putting on the beer fest & he needed to relax after a hard day of sitting with us at our booth.  (yeah right.)  However, I will say that at the bar last Sunday I had the BEST EVER chicken sandwich.  I couldn't believe how tasty it was.  I want like 100 more!

Here are some pictures of last weekend:

That guy in the plaid shirt is the home brewer who drags our (not so) reluctant butts to cool places that have beer & live music.  I will say though, beer fests aren't the greatest if you are out in the hot sun & don't drink any water.  Carry a bottle in your purse!  We got 4 tickets to sample local & other Virginia breweries.  I, however, only sampled two because I didn't quite like the 2nd one.  So I gave away my tickets.  We stood & sat for a good few hours enjoying good music, good friends, and good beer.
Then on Sunday Katie & I loaded up the car with our goodies to sell at an art festival. We didn't make many sales & it gets me rather discouraged.  But I just keep on keeping on.  Hopefully one day I'll be able to make it some sort of my living you know.  We wrapped up the evening by heading to our fave bar for food & mug night.  I've never had such a delicious chicken sandwich in my life!

Then, on about Tuesday night or so, Zach told me a secret he's been keeping along with Katie.  This is all mine:
Zach bought me a kiln.  He bought me a kiln for crying out loud! I never expected it in my wildest dreams.  We talked about it a while ago when we were in Michigan...but I never thought he'd get me one.  Are. You. Kidding. Me? Best. Boyfriend. Ever!  Talk about encouragement.

So that was my week. How was yours?
