Lately I have been pinching pennies to save up for my big move to Shreveport from Bossier City. Even though I have been money conscious my friends are still wanting to hang out and do things together.

Last weekend I went to a Bachelorette Party and spent as little as I could. I think I did pretty well. This weekend one of my friends from High School is coming to town to hangout. We haven't seen each other in months.

I threw some ideas at her like Painting with a Twist or Artipsy's Stiletto Dance Class, but she wasn't digging those ideas because she is in the same money boat as me. Then it hit me... Bob Ross episodes are available on Netflix... I have random blank canvases for when I was really into painting... Holy Moly! We could have our own painting fun without spending any money!

Our plan is to drink the bottles I have wine stocked in my fridge, use the paint supplies I already have, and set up a whole painting area in my living room in front of the TV.

I am just saying the next time you want to have a night in with your friends try a night with Bob Ross!
