Three Things Thursday: Paint Nite, Boston Marathon Text Updates & A Thank You

Three Things Thursday? Hollah! Okay okay just using the alliteration as an excuse to post about three random thoughts in the same space. Not sure why I need alliteration to make that happen, but I'm going with it. I mean technically this is my blog and I can put whatever topics I want in the same post and no one can do anything about it. So there. So maybe I will. Okay. Here I go.

Wow! Not sure what sort of tangent I took there... but I digress!


My friends and I are hitting up a local Paint Night on Sunday and I am stoked! Now I am no artist as I proved last Spring when I attended the Paint Bar for my friend's birthday. The Paint Bar is a studio on Newbury Street that solely hosts Paint parties.

But I tried. And I had a blast with folks and drank some yummy wine. Sooo overall it was a big win!

This time we are going to JJ Grimsby and Co (a restaurant) in Stoneham through the mobile company Paint Nite ($25 per person through Living Social). There are about 10 of us going show it should be a great time. If nothing else there will be a lot of laughs.

Our picture is titled: CHERRY BLOSSOM BRANCHES


And looks like something I can work with. :) I'll be sure to take progress pictures along the way so I can turn it into a nice Flipogram. ;)

GOAL? No med tent visits!! I don't want to share any med tent selfies this year!


I wanted to take a moment to thank each of you that watched my #DaniDishes vlog this week (which you can watch here). I always kept my dealings with depression under lock and key until I was one day faced by friends who had caught on to me. Well they started to notice that I was wearing bracelets on my wrists to hide the cutting. I thank them (they know who they are) for helping turn the first page towards dealing with depression and cutting.

Now it is a long and winding road, but as I said I see a light at the end of the tunnel. I thank all of you for helping me find that. I thank this blog for giving me a place to share those feelings instead of hiding them deep inside or shoving them down further with food.

So thank you again for watching, texting, writing emails, sending DMs and just being there in general - even if you didn't physically reach out.

And remember you are not alone!


How was that for a mish mash of topics? ;)
