Stretching yourself

Last night we stepped out and went downtown for First Friday Art Walk.  One exhibit had all kinds of animals made from braided fabric…..camels, rabbits, birds, skunks, elephants….you name it!

As we made our way around the galleries I was surprised to see a picture

of my cousin, Kayla, at Transformations Gallery and Tattoo.

Interesting concept, an art gallery and tattoo gallery combined…..


We also stopped by Good Girl Art…..

found a really cool sea shell table…..Kenny is thinking

about going back this weekend to see if it’s still available.

Hawthorn Gallery had some really beautiful pieces by artist Dale Auguston

By this time, we were starting to work up our appetite,

so we stopped in at Fedora Social House to use our coupon we bought

on Living Social.

We had all kinds of fondue….

Fedora Cheesesteak fondue as an appetizer,

Teriyaki Fusion as our main course…..this is where the stretching occurred…..

we had never been here before and were a little freaked out when they

brought out a plate of raw steak……WHAT?!

They told us that we put it on the skewers and then cook it in the broth

in the fondue pot…..ended up, it was pretty good…just not a concept

that we were familiar with.  We had this with lobster mac and cheese and bacon peppadews.

Okay, by this point I’m totally stuffed, but our special “Fon Duo” also included dessert…..

White Chocolate Chambord fondue….and to dip into it….marshmallows, graham crackers and pretzels…..oh my….SO STUFFED!!!

So this morning I got up and headed off to yoga class. 

This is a new pose I learned this week….marichyasana

Stretch yourself…..go new places, do new things!


  1. Looks like you had a great outing. those animals are very interesting. i especially like the rabbit. As for that stretch...good for you.

  2. Owwwwww!!!! That looks painful. You make downtown look so good. Love going down there. Jan

  3. Holy Crap!
