Let's Art Party

My Mom grabbed a coupon for Let's Art Party off Living Social, it's one of those classes where they teach you to paint a picture.  Honestly, I did not really want to go because 1. I suck at drawing and 2. I knew my Mom's would be better than mine :) {I tend to be really competitive} BUT she didn't want to go alone and I'm a good daughter.


You don't start with a blank slate, they draw in a sketch of the picture for you.


Mixing up your colors is fun, I wasn't paying attention when she told us white, yellow, and green and I used more blue.  Oops!


It's starting to look good, you could spend hours perfecting your brush strokes.


I love how mine turned out {better than my Mom's shhhhh!} I have to say this was SO. MUCH. FUN!  I will totally be going back and doing this again, if I can talk any of my friends in to going with me :) You really don't have to be artist, the teacher was awesome!

So, in other news Miss Madison is 28 months old now and it's time to get serious about potty training.  She's been using the potty off and on for a while now, but we need to get her using it all the time {and save me a pretty penny on diapers!}   I've had friends who used the 3 Day Potty training method with great success, the thing is you have to be stuck to your toddler for a full 72 hours.  No leaving the house, no surfing the internet, no hanging out at the pool. Sounds like fun huh? Notsomuch.  I have the best husband ever, he took off a day of work so he could do it! LOVE THAT MAN! He doesn't mind staying home all day and has 10x more patience than I do, so it's a win win for everyone :)


The baby potties are too small for her now, but we have to lift her on the regular one.  I really need one of these things my friend Jen talked about on her blog, plus it's so gross when she holds on to the sides! Ewwwww.

I bought her a crap load of panties....


Obviously you need one on your head too.

Happy Monday!

  7. so how was the 3 day potty method? I have been thinking about using it, but wasn't sure if it was worth spending the money on.

  8. Nice painting! I wish I had your creativity.

    Good luck with the potty training. I'm telling you the 3 day was 1 day of hell and then it was worth it. Hopefully things are continuing to go well. Just ditch the diapers and go with it.

  9. Woman, that picture does look amazing! I may love one of those classes, bc I can only draw stick figures, and sometimes I even mess those up. True story.
    And good lucky potty training. I cracked up when I saw that pic of Madison wearing her undies as a hat. Freaking hilarious!
