Last weekend, B and I celebrated 7 years of meowwage. We took most of this week off and planned to do, well, nothing at first, but then all these local event started popping up, and we had to take advantage. Our celebration started early last Friday when we headed to Third Friday at the Third Degree Glass Factory, which promised a night of food, drinks, bellydancing, fire dancers, and lots of awesome glass works.
Since we were heading there after work, I chose to wear something comfy yet still appropriate for work. I scored this top for a cool $10 at Urban Outfitters' recent sale. Sometimes, I'm surprised at the clothing I find there that I'm able to wear to work.
I do want to point out that my hair is auto-ombreing. Maybe it's leftover bleaching from when I went green? I don't know, but I don't want it to go away! Do you know how to ombre at home?
The theme for the night was "Exotic." There were kebabs, hummus and pita, Israeli couscous, tandoori chicken. We had the drink specials too which were Spiced Sangria with Rosemary and Dark and Stormy.
We caught a bit of the fire dancing, which was so hypnotic! I could just watch people play with fire forever!
There was bellydancing and henna tattooing and live music, but B and I sat our asses down for almost the whole night to watch glassblowing demos. It was mesmerizing! We're planning on signing up for a class once the weather cools down!
After watching Mike (the guy making cool glass stuffs in the pic above) make a paperweight and sculptural bottle, B and I ambled around to see the displays and stuff for sale. Since we have 3 active cats, I don't want to buy anything to display and be a potential cat target. These were gorgeous, though, and so full of detail!
We had so much fun at Third Degree, we're definitely going back for next month's Third Friday event. And stay tuned for more Anniversary Adventures!
