the weather here is SO YUCK! cold, grey and drizzly. i don't like cold, grey drizzle no matter what the temperature is but it is worse in the winter. of course maybe if i could lay around in my bed all day it wouldn't be as bad but no way THAT'S happening! maybe in another 10 years!
some of you may have read on facebook a little about our fun adventure to the national aquarium in baltimore. i REALLY need to take pezza more places so we started with the aquarium - baltimore inner harbor is only about 1 1/2 hours away. well the morning of our little trip pezza woke up at 2:30. AM. IN THE MORNING. 2 freakin 30. no matter what i did, she did not go back to sleep. nor did anyone else since she was kicking and screaming :P but i had already bought the tickets and they were not cheap so we headed out anyway. believe it or not the trip was great...until we had to leave. wanna know how loud maniacal screams are when the echo off of tall downtown buildings? not as loud as they are when they echo off of the walls of a parking garage... then the gps couldn't get a signal to get me out of baltimore so i wandered around a bit and ended up driving through probably the most run down of city areas i have ever seen and i have been in a lot of big cities - new orleans, st louis, san diego...wow! but we made it home. pezza DID finally nap for about 40 minutes in the car and she spent the rest of the time crying and telling me i was a horrible mother for making her leave the aquarium. motherhood - love it!
after spending so much time at the aquarium of the americas in new orleans with the boys this aquarium was a bit disappointing BUT pezza enjoyed it. i have pics at the bottom of this post for those interested.
as you know my buddy suzanne has started a new challenge group over on color me creative for smash booking/scrapbooking/journaling. our challenge for january is a 2012 to do list/resolutions. mine is going to truly be a smash up of all sorts of things - part to do, part ideas, part art journal experimentation. so today i have some pages i put together with my ideas for pezza's room which i am hoping to get done very soon. i have been collecting pics from catalogs and pinterest for sometime every time i run across something i like so i put them on this first page:
