Are you there World? It’s me, Amanda.
I just wanted to let y’all know that I’m alive. I’m well. Life is never perfect but I can’t complain. It’s been a while and I’m feeling lazy so here’s your recap… In pictures:
First, my husband and I did this:
And I took a #selfie cause I was feeling pretty that night:
I did three of these as the cookie mom:
I baked these for my brother N’s 26th birthday (btw he is now 60+ days clean and has a job)!:
I took another #selfie (with a #duckface!) because I was feeling pretty at work and apparently am obsessed with myself:
This happened and it was awesome:
Little J had a sleepover for her 9th birthday:
Then she had a laser tag party:
Then her actual birthday rolled around:
Her birthday is March 17, which happened to be a snow day for both the school district and the federal government, which is what my employer goes by:
I spent some time being über domesticated. I made my own Popsicles:
Email me if you want the recipe.
I also made lemon brownies which are so fucking delicious I’ve made them twice since:
Then this happened (a nasty sty+infection) and lasted for 2 weeks with 4 trips to the doctor/ophthalmologist:
April fools day rolled around:
My bearded dragon got stuck in an awkward position:
Then spring decided to finally show up and we played outside:
Little J had lots of fun at her school’s science fair which featured hands on projects for attendees such as building an egg protector and watching an egg drop, making balloon powered mini-cars, conducting electricity through dough, and of course showing off the projects the students submitted:
Then all of a sudden, the weather was beautiful! 70*F and warmer! So we spent 5 hours at our favorite local park cooking out, playing mini golf and fishing one day:
And of course I’ve been hanging out with my #1 pussy:
Basically, I’ve been busy living life instead of complaining about it if you can even believe that!
