you know it's easter time when... see these in the store.

potty and big girl bed

i have been such the slacker.

i'm really going to try and be better. school has just been a lot this semester. i won't bore you when that. maybe in another post :)

so, addison is potty training now. we've been at it for about a week now, and she has some on and off days. we're trying pullups, and she seems to like them.

she doesn't really tell me when she needs to potty, so we're trying to work on that. i'll just sit her on the potty every so often and sometimes i get lucky.

we also got a travel potty. i've only used it a couple of times, but it's made traveling and having to go potty so much easier.

addison is also in a big girl bed now!! my mom got a twin bed frame, so we put that together about a week and a half ago while she was at mdo. my mom got a headboard and footboard, but those need to be painted so we just have the bed frame for now.

she has been doing fabulous in it!! she hasn't figured out how to escape yet (knock on wood). her bed is in the corner, so we only have to use 1 bed rail.

she seems to love being in a big girl bed! and i like it too because i can crawl in bed with her in the morning to wake her up :)

and it means i get to redecorate her room a bit. still working on that though. i'll post pictures when it's done (if that ever happens).

zoo days

my mom signed addison up for a few weeks of classes at the zoo. they're on thursdays while i'm in school, so my mom gets to take her and have some addison/gigi time. they get to color, read books, sing songs, and meet animals!

this past week, since i was on spring break, i got to join them! it was really fun. my mom isn't able to take many pictures when she goes by herself because addison wants to sit with her the whole time, but since i was there, i could take some pictures!

it was cold and kind of rainy that day, so the zoo was pretty dead. we walked around outside for a minute after class, but we didn't stay long. addison loves the monkeys, so she wanted to go see them. unfortunately they don't like cold weather so they were inside. she said "where monkeys go?" constantly when we went to where the monkeys were supposed to be. and she kept asking for the rest of the day. she's a silly girl!

my new obsession

i really wanted a pair of TOMS for christmas, but i couldn't make up my mind on which ones i wanted and i didn't know what size i'd be. so i kept putting it off, until i finally went somewhere that sold them and tried on a pair. i figured out the size i needed, but they didn't have the color i wanted. so i ordered them online.

and i'm in love with them.

they are so comfy.

and i think i want 2351332532 more pairs!

i got the olive ones (top) but i'm thinking about getting another pair. these are my favorites!!

and i don't want to leave addison out...

i love all of these for her. she may get a pair too!

all found on the TOMS website.

do you have a pair of TOMS? if so, which ones? do you love them as much as i do??

wee bit wednesdays

sorry i haven't blogged in the past almost week. i've been in kind of a funk so i haven't been motivated to do much, let alone blog. but since i'm on spring break, we have something fun planned for tomorrow so i'll definitely blog about it and post pictures!!

and here's the one thing you can pretty much count on every week...wee bit wednesdays!!

{one} what color is your kitchen?
it's hard to explain. kinda red, but with some brown/tan. that probably doesn't sound like a pretty color, but it is!

{two} do you have a good luck charm?

{three} do you prefer to write with a pen or pencil?
i use pens most of the time, but on tests and things that i know i'll need to erase i use a pencil.

{four} can you use chopsticks?
yup. i'm not an expert, but i can use them.

{five} do you prefer baths or showers?
definitely showers. a bath can be relaxing though. i haven't taken a bath in forever. don't worry, i have showered though :)

{six} what is your favorite salad dressing?
thousand island is probably my favorite on salads. i like the ginger dressing at the sushi places, too.

{seven} can you sing the alphabet backwards?
i've never tried. it would probably take me a while.

nothing big. just the usual seasonal stuff.

{nine} crunchy or creamy peanut butter?

i used to buy them that way. back in the day when i worked at abercrombie. now i realize how stupid it was to pay more for jeans with holes in them!
