Welcome! I'm Amber, and this is a blog filled with love, happiness, and craziness. I'm a 20-something mama, full-time traffic manager for CCME, and full-time college student. My daughter, Elodie, who you will see a lot of, is the light of my life. In August 2013, my very best friend, David, popped the Big Question - of course I said "Yes!!!" I'm insanely passionate for the ocean. And giraffes. El is currently obsessed with Disney Jr.

The Zero Theorem

Watched this last Sunday.  Terry Gilliam never fails to transport me to magical worlds where even the most impossible is possible.

Oooooooh - cannot wait until this comes out!!!

Someone’s had a loooooong day!!! 😴💤

Even though it rained the whole 20 minutes we were able to be on the beach (lightning forced us out), she loved every single second. Sorry kiddo, we’ll try again on our next weekend together.

Marry your best friend.

Marry someone who you wouldn’t mind waking up to every day for the rest of forever.
 The one who makes you fucking glad to be alive. Who makes you feel like your heart has a huge goofy smile on its face. Don’t settle.

Marry someone who drives you crazy. The one who frustrates you. Marry the one you don’t mind fighting with, because they will not be stuck up or awkward about it. Don’t marry someone who gives their ego more importance, than they give you.

Marry someone who you can check other people out with. The one who you turn to when your world comes undone. The one whose shoulder you want at 4 AM because “nothing seems to work out”. The one you want at 2 PM because you hate eating your food alone.
Marry someone who knows how much coffee you need in the morning to be fully awake. The one who knows you are not a morning person.

Marry someone you can imagine yourself spending not just Friday nights but also Sunday afternoons with. The one you can see yourself with in the future…. maybe twenty or twenty five years down the line. The one who can take your sadness away in that one hug.

Marry someone who makes you the best version of yourself. The one who believes in you, even when you don’t. The one who stands by you, through thick and thin.

Marry someone you can’t imagine your life without.

Marry the one you are insanely in love with. And the one who is insanely in love with you.

Marry the one who knows what you want to say, when you’re too tired to say it with words. The one you can spend comfortable silences with from time to time.

Marry the one you can imagine yourself going on long road trips with.

Marry your soulmate. Marry your best friend.

Best friend. - A (via iship-usdarling)

When did my kid turn into Cinderella? “Cleaning” my kitchen floors and singing while she does. 😂

Short hair don’t care.

The face of 3pm Friday. Also: can’t wait to take this mop shorter tomorrow morning!

Ahhh - need to watch this again this weekend!

Pool night 🏊

You know what drives me bonkers?
Scrolling through short hair tags on Pinterest and seeing the following as the caption:

If only my [boyfriend/fiance/husband] wouldn’t kill me, I’d get this cut!

No.  Just no.  Fuck that.  It’s your hair and you should wear it how you feel and you like.  Ugh.Same goes for clothing and makeup.  Wear what you feel comfortable in and fuck the rest.  Seriously.

Elodie decided that our money tree needed some pruning. I’d like to prune her face. 👊😑

Help me, I’m holding on for dear life. 

Saturday morning we watched music videos through our YouTube app on the TV and danced around the living room.  Elodie is also a lover of Katy Perry (whom she refers to as Carrie Hairy - seriously this kid), Ed Sheeran, Beastie Boys, and Twenty One Pilots.  Those seemed to be the ones she danced hardest to and sang along to.  But when I put this song on, she asked “Mommy, can you play that dancer girl song again please?!”

We watched/listened/danced to this song four times in a row.
