Last weekend was amaaaazing !!!!!
After a night out of painting with a few college peeps...

You girls rock!

I was off to Dallas to hike up one of the tallest buildings in Texas yet again!

January 28th was the day of the BIG D CLIMB this year and to add to the fun, my cousin and I were lucky enough to have an extra team member...yay!

My other half could't make it as he was at Immortal Kombat II with his Dad, but next year we are hoping to make it a four person (OR MORE) team.

Besides... climbing 52 flights of stairs yourself is much tougher than just sitting ringside at a boxing match... I think. 

Anyway, if I do say so myself, team Monstairs looked marvelous as we lugged ourselves up all 52 floors.

I didn't have my camera as I was too busy concentrating on not tripping and falling all the way back down, but luckily for us there were persons stationed around the event to take pictures for us. The following images were taken from the Big D Climbs picasa web album:

This last photo is mine, taken via the trusty old camera phone

I'm pretty proud of us! The only bummer was we totally forgot the costumes we were going to wear for team Monstairs. (oops...)
We have an even better team name/costume idea planned for next year, so I'm pretty over the being down about the costume thing.

Another reason I am so over the missing costumes is after we climbed to the top of Fountain Place we got to feed a giraffe.

Giraffes are for winners...

I know! I love Pinot's Palette :-)
I was late thanks to Houston traffic so my painting was kind of rushed, but the rest of the groups turned out great!
Glad you like the team name... we were pretty proud of ourselves, lol

Good ol' Houston traffic. Unpredictable! :)
