Last Saturday was the "Big Fight" which, let's be honest, means nothing to a bunch of wives except that our husbands have an appointment with the TV that night. SO, instead of sitting through and enduring watching 2 men beat each other up, we planned a girls night! Our friend Amber offered up her house because she had all the materials to make lauhala and beaded jewelry. I've never been much of a jewelry wearer, and this was my first time working with lauhala so I was pretty excited. Most of the girls were making earrings but since I don't have my ears pierced, Amber taught me how to make a bracelet and a ring. It was a little tough at first but once I got the hang of it, it turned out great! I don't have any pictures right now but i'll post them once I get them. the night was spent with good friends talking, laughing, making jewelry, and of course, snacking away :) Thanks Amber, Jaymie, Alana, Kiam, Aimoku, and Jovy!

Oh, and the best part, we didn't have to watch the fight AND the Superbowl all in one weekend, just the Superbowl!
