My new favorite thing!


If you haven't heard of these...well, I honestly am mixed about telling everyone about them...because I want to keep them for myself!!!

These are sooo fun!!!

Lisa Dick is a local artist who does AMAZING work!

Now, she's sharing it with everyone! For $40 you sign up for the party you prefer based on what you'll be painting and then she provides you with all the materials you need to do the piece. You can take food and beverages with you, if you like.

Seriously, it is waay fun!!!

On the 5th of each month she posts the parties for the next month here.

Here's some pictures of the parties I did.


Me and Jessica after we finished "Just Beachy".

Me painting a pink zinnia for Melissa Jane.

 Me and the finished pink zinnia. Melissa Jane got in on the painting, see the paint on the belly? :)

Me and Jennifer after we finished our pink zinnias.



So much has happened!!!

First, I should probably apologize for having been MIA for so long!

Here's the news...

1. Baby: all is good! She and I are trying to bond...She really seems to be happy with kicking away!

2. Fun things: My baby shower invitations arrived!!! (This is the one thing that I really wanted to be OCD about. And I figured if you're gonna be OCD, well why not just handle it completely...)
Thanks to Kathryn, one of my teacher friends and a WSHS grad, I found the cutest invitation here. Thanks!!

3. School things... well, I'm approved to teach for year #2...but we still don't know where...

4. Science teacher things.. I just got back from San Francisco!!! It was AMAZING!
A few picks are below, but it was absolutely incredible! I got to go to the California Academy of Science, the Exploratorium, Fort Mason, Hyde Park, Union Square Park, the Presario, the Palace of Fine Arts, Golden Gate Beach and Park, walk through the largest Chinatown in the country, walk through Little Italy, Ghirardelli Square, eat at AMAZING restaurants; Burger Bar, Capurro's, Crab House, In-N-Out Burger, Honey,Honey and a few others!

Lombard Street...not the "crookedest" street in the country, but it certainly is winding...

Forget "I'm on a Boat" check-ins on foursquare...I got to do an "I'm on a Cable Car!"

The living roof at California Academy of Science, waay cool!


Do I need to explain above or below??


So sweet!

4. Now, for the best news all week....

My cousin and her husband have safely returned from service in Afghanistan!!!!


I am so grateful to the men and women who serve our country, however, I am most grateful for the safe return of these two wonderful people!!

It's been over a week!?!?!?!?!

Oh my goodness! I can't believe I let a whole week go by without posting!

Ok, first we'll start with baby news, I had a check up with the midwives... I have reached the point in my pregnancy where I no longer want to know what my weight is. Amy informed me that my weight was fine, I've only gained 2 pounds in the last month and she's fine with that, which is fine with me. Jonas, of course, was only concerned with one thing...hearing Melissa Jane's heartbeat.

She is definitely my girl...she couldn't decide how she wanted to lay! Amy and I couldn't decide if she was head up or down...but once we found her heartbeat, she sounds great!

I had an insane to do list for this weekend. Most is done.
1. I have cleared our dining room table of years worth of paper. I should have taken a picture! No joke, this was at least 6-7 BIG boxes of paper all mixed up! Now everything is organized and either thrown out, waiting to be shredded, or put away!
2. I got 3 more boxes of random things put away from in front of a bookcase in the family room.
3. All my clothes are put away (and not on the end of my bed.)
4. (My mother would be shocked) I have now gone a whole month of making my bed in the morning!!!!
5. I got 2 CD organizers and put all the CDs in the organizers (and got rid of the cases...my what space that saves!)
6. We have emptied half of the kitchen so Geoff really will be able to start the kitchen remodel!!! YEAH!!!
7. All that's left now is the errands...

Ok, new post coming later...with pictures!!!

I've got to tell yall about baby stuff and go girl art!!
