Face Painting & FREE stationary

Yesterday, we went with our friend Amanda to the school she is a art teacher at. It was the school's fall festival, and we did face painting. It was a dress-up thing and I was minnie mouse- Caroline a tiger, and Lauren a egyptian princess. Lauren's friend Zoe and 2 other girls went too.

It was really fun! I had never face painted before, but I did pretty good. A couple of times, I messed up a little. But anyway, the kids were adorable!! they were soo sweet!

I had a lot of fun~! Before I went to that, I baby-sat with Caroline for some friends from our church, for some of my favorite kids! They have 2 2 year old adorable adopted little girls (well they are still in the adoption process with marie) - Annie, the oldest is very pale, with blonde curly hair and blue eyes, and her little sister Marie is african-american with beautiful brown eyes. They are both soo cute together! We are praying it goes well with the adoption process. That family is so sweet!

Anyways, Caroline got her stationary from traylorspaper today.

Fun run!:)

SO today was the Ardmore 5k. Our church started doing it, and then it's just sorta been a tradition. Over 700 people did the 5k, and about 100 did the fun run (1 mile). Our church raised over $15,000 for a food bank! I did the fun run... It was fun! My shoes came untied (though i double-knotted them) and I had to stop or else I would make my self look stupid and trip! (ha!) But i tried to jog or run most of the time... My dad did the fun run AND the 5k! GO DAD! 4.1 miles... It was FREEZING cold. ahhh!!! I wore my fleece columbia jacket and soffe shorts. It was soooooo coollllllddd! ahhh i'm like cold right now thinking about it. anyway it was really fun! Also, me and my sisters volunteered to cheer ppl on at the intersections. That was fun! I saw a ton of ppl i know, including both of my teachers. (haha)

Yesterday, we went shopping. I finally found a winter coat (yea!) Its brown fleece columbia jacket with light aqua writing, and a light-aqua and brown rain coat-ish thing that you can wear it with or w/o the fleece. It is soo warm! I am happy!:)

I also got some sperries. (well their fakes but they look JUST like them except for the logo). they are very comfortable! I went to some shoe stores but I didn't see many boots i liked... anyways, Thanks for the advice in my previous post!:)

fall clothes HELP!

I am seriously in need of some long-sleeved shirts, and some shoes I can wear in the fall/winter. I like boots, but I am very picky about them. I strongly dislike uggs. I wish I liked them, b/c they look really warm and comfy, but I think they look like walking-on-the-moon boots or something of the sort. Okay, I know a lot of ppl like them- but not me! I like loafers... I'm not a big fan of wallubies though. And flats, I like, but they are way too cold! suggestions would be very much appreciated.

And shirts- hate neons. Hate lumber jack plaids. (sorry guys!)
But DO like- ruffle blouses, polo shirts, cable knit sweaters... j.crew-y stuff except I dont' really want to buy stuff from there because it's so $$$ and I will probably grow out of it really soon. (i'm 13 okay!) SOO it would be (very much) appreciated if you gave me some ideas of where to get reasonably priced cute clothes!

Thank you thank you thank you~! As you can see, I'm a very picky 13 year old.

7 give-a-ways

Nautical by nature is having a give-a-way week! Yes, 7 give-a-ways. So head over and see if you can win something!:)

Sunday, October 4, 2009


So the fair is this week. We went on Friday, and i won my first ribbon! (haha!) I made white chocolate scones (which got 3d place in the ADULT section- long story), painted a plate which got 2nd place, and dream bars that didn't win anything. (we had to turn them in before they cooled, and they were still gooey!)

on friday, we celebrated caroline's birthday. we made a really nice lunch of shrimp, bread, salad, and coconut cake. it was yummy!:D it was a little disapointing, because one of my grandma's couldn't come because she was sick, and one showed up and told us she'd eat a piece a cake and stay for 2o minutes (which i was a little ticked off about)... anyways, i hope caroline had a good birthday! me and lauren got her a really adorable anchor necklace from the jewel box.

yesterday, my dad randomly (and awesomely!) told us we were getting a trampoline. so we went to sports authority and now we have been jumping away!:) it's really good excercise too!:)

the sermon at church was so good. we are covering genesis. here's a song i like!

well.. hope u had a good weekend. ahhh monday is almost here.
