#PWATBFF With My Bestie

Last week, I had the opportunity to attend a blogger event here in New Orleans! I was a little surprised because I rarely hear about blogger events here at home and I’m normally traveling for them. However, to my surprise, it was quite an event and a fun experience to share with other dot-commers like myself.

In case you missed it, last Wednesday was National Best Friend Day. A whole day dedicated to your bestie, how sweet is that? I was given a chance to bring my bestie along to Painting With A Twist – Metairie, LA location, where I was able to meet other NOLA bloggers and their besties, too.

Not sure if you know what Painting With A Twist is but I guarantee that you’d love it if you’ve never tried it! Basically it’s a social painting class (all levels of expertise welcome… even beginners). For beginners like myself, who just so happen to be perfectionists, there’s also wine and lots of it! It really is a great place each class is a different painting.

We even got a chance to meet co-founders Cathy Deano and Renee Maloney who are best friends IRL! What started out as Corks N Canvas eventually turned into a Painting With A Twist franchise of over 300 locations, and they started right here in Louisiana! Boss Girl status and total dream team goals! So I’m glad that I was able to bring my bestie, Rita with me! She’s also my cousin and a boss girl herself. Hearing Cathy and Renee’s story inspired us to continue to grow our empire!
