Fingers Were Crossed.

You know what's better than staying home from school because of snow? Staying home from work!! I checked the weather about a hundred times yesterday and watched as the snow got closer and closer. It's finally here and I'm loving it. I have to admit as much as I hate the summers in Tulsa, the city really redeems itself come winter. I mean snow before Christmas?! That's unheard of in Alabama. I had to run out very quickly to take these pictures. The wind chill is 9 degrees.

Here are some photos and a video...




Now you know, I gotta keep my Shermy warm on such a cold day. It was the perfect time to pull out his winter attire.
He appears to be mad at first.


However, he soon realized it was for more than just good looks.

Tiny Elvis.

Here are some pictures of Jackson dressed as Elvis for Halloween. In case you don't remember, he's the baby I used to keep. The costume was totally his idea...

Tell me he's not the cutest thing you've seen all day!

A Mid-Pie Baking Rant.

FYI. If meringue were a person we would not be friends. It's way to picky about the type of bowl it will sit in and heaven forbid a tiny drop of yolk sneaks in. If you do not play by its rules forget about getting it to peak. Tell me who invented meringue? I would like to have their name. It's not even that good.

I have to go buy more eggs. Perhaps, I'll buy whip cream just to be spiteful.

AA for the Beauty Junkie

Hi. My name is Amby and I'm addicted to beauty products. (everyone in unison...Hi Amby)

I cleaned out from under my bathroom sink the other day and was astounded at how many products I have accrued. Well, I don't know why I was astounded, because I was there when I bought them. Sometimes I allow myself to buy into makeup's advertising, even though deep down I know it's just marketing. But what if they really do invent a lip gloss that lasts 12 hours, despite multiple make outs and drinks? I want to know! I have improved at throwing things out, but you never know when you may need fake eyelashes with glitter, 12 shades of pink lip gloss or 5 moisturizers for different skin problems. What if tomorrow my skin is extra dry? Crisis averted, I have an extra thick lotion. Nathan is quite baffled by my need for so many things, until the cold air hits his face and he needs moisturizer.

Also, I've always felt it was important to coordinate my outfits. I tried to loosen up some in college. Even still I couldn't go more than a drive home before fixing chipped nail polish. Right now my toes need to be repainted and even though I'm wearing boots and socks, it bothers me. What if there's an emergency and I have to remove my shoes? Remember: Freshly painted toenails, just as important as clean underwear. Here I demonstrate coordinating my nails with my necklace.

(Seriously guys restrain yourself from making man hand jokes. Those of you wondering, I think I have man hands and my mom and brother think it's ok to make fun of me.)

I'm going to overnight him.

Mom,
Sherman says it's about time for him to visit. I'm sending him UPS.
He'll be there tomorrow.
Oh, and he's bringing his water cooler. Have fun!

Follow me down the rabbit hole...

Blah blah blah. Halloween was over a week ago, I know this. I didn't even realize this picture was on my camera. I thought someone else had taken it. The Saturday before Halloween, Nathan and Aaron, who have a band called Motorcade, played their first show. We all decided to dress as characters from Alice in Wonderland. Nathan went as the Mad Hatter and Aaron was the March Hare. I was Alice and my sweet friend Tony was the White Rabbit. I followed him around all night, of course. And my lovely friend Renee went as the Queen of Hearts. Their show was awesome!! I was so proud of them.

We took this after the show. We didn't manage to get a group picture. Smart, huh?

Using naptime as a photo op.



Sherman says he fully supports my new hobby.




Also, I was able to get a picture of his singed whiskers. I doubt he will be sniffing anymore lit candles.
