i got a few of my friends hooked on twilight. my friend mary, who i got hooked on twilight, found a class at sips n strokes where we painted something from twilight. so she signed us up and we went! i had never been before, and i didn't really know what to expect. everyone i went with had been there before, so they kind of filled me in. it was only $25 and we got to take our paintings home that night!
i'm not going to lie. i'm not an artist....
we started with a white canvas and had to paint it all black. then we put a little red where we wanted...
mary was sitting right across from me, so i got a lot of picture of her :)
and the finished product! i sat there and kept adding to it. i didn't think it looked very good, especially compared to the teacher's. but now that i haven't been staring it for 2 hours, i don't think it looks too bad.
i'm proudly displaying my work of art :) and hopefully i'll go back soon to do more! i'll make sure to chose something that looks a little easier.
here's our group, minus one. she had to leave right after we finished. from left to right, melissa, me, mary, and sarah. and we all love twlight!!
oh, and they had a class where they painted a picture of edward from twilight. i laughed.
i told chris we were going to hang the picture above our bed. i was just kidding though. he hates twilight. but our bathroom is red, so i think i might hang it in there. and chris doesn't mind that either.
i can't wait to go back. i think my mom and i are going to try to go sometime. it's a lot of fun!

addison cut her first tooth last night/today. i'll write about that tomorrow.
wish me luck in my blog designing!
this week i decided to participate in MckMama's Not Me! Monday. it's the blog carnival that showcases what we did do, err didn't do, but are ok with admitting.
while in the kitchen, i did not spill some water on the kitchen floor. oops! usually, i would just grab a paper towel and clean it up. but this time, i was wearing socks, and i did not just run my foot over the water and let my sock soak up the water. i would never do such a thing. especially since there are paper towels right beside me. never!
i did not hit the snooze button on my alarm multiple times this morning. i would never try to squeeze in 15 extra minutes of sleep, even though i knew would be rushed getting ready and getting to school on time. i love my sleep!
on the days i didn't have class, i most certainly did not use my child as an alarm clock. and if she woke up earlier than i wanted to, i would definitely not get out of bed, give her some toys and her paci, and go back to bed. i mean, isn't that a lot of work to just get more sleep? i would never do a thing like that!
while changing addison's poopy diaper, one of her little nuggets (that's what chris and i call her little poops) did not fall on my foot. when noticing said nugget on my foot, i most certainly did not scream and kick my foot to get it off. i would never kick a nugget on the carpet just to get it off of my foot. ewww!
today, i most certainly did not shove my finger (yes it was clean) in addison's mouth so i could see if she was getting any teeth. i would never do such a thing, knowing it makes me mad. but she did get her first tooth! more on that later...
well, i think that's it for things i did not do this past week. or at least the things i'm willing to admit. now hop on over to MckMama's blog and check out what other people aren't doing :)

i feel like i've gotten a lot done today. i've cleaned, done laundry, and finished some homework. i still have more laundry to do, but i think it's going to get done either tonight or tomorrow. i took addison over to my mom's house earlier. i went because i figured out a way to get the music from my mom's iTunes on her computer to my iTunes on my laptop. then i'll be able to transfer it from my laptop to my desktop at home. so i'll have all my music again. yay!
i left addison at my mom's to nap, and came home to get a few things done. i haven't really been that successful. i get distracted easier. no, i don't have ADD. i just find things
tomorrow, i'm going to my grandmother's with my dad and addison. she had surgery thursday on her shoulder. we're taking her breakfast, which we did last sunday as well. addison likes being able to play there instead of having to sit in a highchair. she's all over the place.
we never got around to taking addison to a pumpkin patch last week. i really wanted to go to Honeysuckle Hill Farm, but i don't think we'll get to this year. chris is off wednesday, so we'll probably just take her to the place over by my mom's house and get a few pumpkins. i'll try to take pictures there though.
well, time for me to go pick up my little stinker. she should be waking up soon, and my mom has stuff for a bottle, but no food. and i don't think addison would be very happy if she didn't get to eat!

i. love. uggs.
no matter how many people tell me they think they're ugly, i just love them. they are so comfortable. ahhh. just thinking about them makes me happy. i got my first real pair a few years ago, and i have 2 pairs now. chris got me my second pair 2 years ago, but i don't ever wear those. i don't like them. they're the really short ones, and i regret getting them. but the ones that i wear all the time are the medium height ones, and they're amazing.
they are really old and kind of dirty, so i'm thinking about asking for a new pair for christmas. i just love putting my feet into a new pair. they're so fluffy.
when i found out i was having a girl, i knew i wanted her to have uggs. i told chris, and he was just like whatever. but my mom surprised me and got her a pair! they are so cute. they're pink :) she got them off ebay, so they were cheaper than new ones. but i don't think a baby can tell the difference between new and used uggs.
this is addison only a few weeks old in her uggs....
this is addison now in her uggs. she doesn't really know what to think of them. but i think they look so cute! she wouldn't stay still long enough for me to get a good picture. she is an explorer full time now.
and here's mommy and daughter uggs :)
and they're off. addison would try kicking them off, so after we were done taking pictures, i just took them off. and she started chewing on whatever she could find.
if you live somewhere that has cold winters, i highly suggest you get a pair of uggs. they keep your feet so warm. and even though they may not be the cutest shoes (i still think they are), warm feet win!

next were the meerkats. they are so cute! they just stood there so still. addison was quite fascinated.
they had this little bubble you could get in and be inside the meerkat area. you had to crawl under, like on your hands and knees, to get there. i was going to take addison there, but it was crowded the first time we passed it. but on our way out it was empty. so i crawled under and chris passed addison to me. she loved it!
she would wave at the animals. it was so cute! she waved at that little guy, and he was just looking at her like what are you doing. it was pretty funny.
