I’ve been camera/photo organizing and messing with my bloggy layout and I’m still very much not satisfied.
Also-it’s only Tuesday and it’s already been a very blah week. I feel like I simply can NOT catch up on sleep.  It’s ridiculous. I’m soooooo sleepy even as I post this.
Hope your week is going great!

Oh! Hubby & I have a date night swap off this weekend! I’m pretty excited!
We are swapping babysitting nights with some friends of ours Friday & Saturday.
Movie suggestions?? Please share them with me.

it's an outfit post.

Remember when I got this shirt? I wore it.
After I wore it, I realized it would have looked better untucked, unbuttoned and with a belt.
Now I know for next time.
Also, I have some kickass yellow heels that I was DYING to wear with this shirt...
but life in Alaska threw that idea out the window.
Break up season=slushie icey mess.  Heels=NO GOOD.

This was an accidental pic.

Baby girl thought her feet needed in the pic too.
 
Outfit details:
Boots-payless.
Skirt-Kohls
Yellow shirt-Kohls
Colorful Blouse-thrifted
Tights-walmart

Dear anonymous..... Again.

I thought you'd like to know that I've spoken to a lawyer about your threats towards my children and towards me and the harassment towards me and my friends.
I included the "Hey! Amber, I know where you live, and I loved sitting in front of your house last night, maybe tonight ill wait for you to go to sleep and come get those little bitchy kids of yours! =)"
Can be found here.
and I mentioned where you said "Yall are whores! :) Maybe I should email your husband!" on this post about visiting anchorage.
I sent my lawyer a copy of the Dear Anonymous post I wrote you.
And the comments you've sent that I didn't approve after I finally set my comments to need approval before posting.
My lawyer said I should post this email on my blog since you're "anonymous" and I have no way of contacting you.... so here you go.

In summary of our phone conversation, it is very difficult to prove harassment via social media such as Facebook, MySpace and individual and public blog sites. That is not to say that prosecution and/or civil liability cannot be pursued as there are options that may be used.
As I explained, a subpoena may be obtained to discover the IP address of the anonymous sender if by computer or the cell phone number and service provider if used through a wireless application.
If this is something you still wish to pursue, please contact me so that we may start the paperwork.


Fair warning.

Featured Friday. Meet Mandy Mouse!!

Hello my lovlies, today I would like to introduce you to a very creative lady.
Her name is Amanda.  She blogs over at Mandy Mouse creates.  I stumbled across her the other day and got sucked in by THIS!! Seriously, that is the greatest list book I think I have ever seen!  Then I checked out her etsy shop and completely fell in love all over again! And seeing how I was looking for people to feature, I quickly stalked searched her page until I found her contact/email thing and was super excited when she replied with this post!! Then replied again with a 15% discount (enter "featuredfriday"at checkout) for you guys!!! So without further ado....
Meet the lovely Amanda! 


Hi Everyone! My name is Amanda, and I am the woman behind Mandy Mouse Creates. I'm just a soon-to-be Mom who loves to create. I'm 22, married to my high school sweetheart, and living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I was born in California, but moved here when I was 2 years old. My Mom was one of those home-makers that was always making stuff for us. Pajama pants, blankets, swim suits, dresses for school formals, skirts for church.. you name it. She taught me how to sew when I was about 12 years old, and I was hooked. Sewing and Photography are my two biggest obsessions.. occasionally you will see me dabble in some scrapbooking and other random crafting. I love to try new things, and I'm always up for suggestions!! I make and sell wallets on etsy.com, and I'm working on new designs for more products. Currently, I have a camera strap design that should be released within the next week. I would love feedback if you have any! I am always up for trades as well =]

Tasty Tuesday.... a day late.

Baked London Broil
(Source)

You will need:
1 London Broil (or optional roast, any kind)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 pkg. dry Lipton onion soup
6 potatoes, chunked
6 carrots, sliced
1 sm. onion
3/4 c. water
Combine meat and all other ingredients. Cover with foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 3 hours.

I used 1/2 cup of water and 1/4 cup of water instead of the 3/4 cup cuz I have NO idea where my 3/4 cup was.
If you're anything like me, you'll need to prepare YOURSELF for the onion chopping.  *still rubbing eyes*

Ignore my seriously needing a good clean over.... I just told hubby LAST NIGHT that I really needed to clean that thing.  It's been added to my list of things to do. (that list is NEVER ending by the way)


Eat and enjoy.
Mmmm.

Love, A.

Also-if you would like to see the matching tattoos that I mentioned, go HERE
Even if you don't care about the tattoos--go there anyway. It's an amazing blog.

it's tuesday. I love tuesdays cuz you're sort of past the "it's monday" blues.

Hello hello my lovlies. How are you all today?  I feel like I've been slacking on the blog posting lately.... even though I really haven't been. Have I?!
Anyway... hubster has been on leave so we've been doing a lot of nothing much at all but sitting home and being pretty darn dandy bored.  Yup. Fun times, right?!
So, he went back to work and I thought I would update you on what you've missed and show you some pictures.
First off, Iphone users::
Download INSTAGRAM.
If you wish to follow me, shoot me a message and I'll give you my instagram name.



This is probably my FAVORITE kitchen drawer. Also, I HIGHLY recommend "skinny dippin". It smells SOOOOOO good!!

Right along with:
Welcome home.
Any of the Citrus ones.
Lucky in love.
Clean breeze.
The beach one--i've forgotten the name.

Then I made chocolate chip pancakes.... per request of my son saying that daddy needed to go to the grocery store on his way home from the gym to buy chocolate chips. --Yup, THAT happened! He really told daddy to buy chocolate chips! Daddy of course obliged.... it was too funny a story to not get the chips!
They were enjoyed.



Then we ATTEMPTED family pictures.... I say "attempted" because they did NOT go over very well. . . . . .



...all because this cute little girl......

SERIOUSLY just needed a nap!

Then we took a picture at a red light.
Then I realized sometimes photo editing looks kind of creepy.


Then I found about about THIS app...
And then I did these....
(which really entertained me!)


and made me realize that I go through quite a few pairs of sunglasses.



And quite a few colors/cuts.
My poor hair.

Then I realized how much baby girl loves her big bro.


Then daddy let baby boy "help" shave his head for work.


Oh and if you guys know my friend, Jenn, you know that she's pretty much obsessed with Naked drinks
and since discovering this, I've been on a mad crazy wild goose chase to find them and try one.
So the other day after many failed attempts...she brought me this drink.
They were out of the Nakeds but she said this was the next best thing.
She was totally right about these drinks by the way.
They're really good!
Don't I have good friends?!
I know. You should be jealous!


oh gosh.... then my little monster baby girl decides she's ready to wear underwear!
She brought me a pair of her brother's! haha! how cute is she in little Cars undies?!
Potty training though--not so great.
She sits on the potty and wipes and then says "all done"
Fingers crossed that she gets it soon.
YAY NO DIAPERS!!
Girlie undies are on our shopping list.
I'm thinking Hello Kitty
&
Elmo.
Yup


That's been my past few days.
hope you enjoyed.
Love, A.
