If You Really Knew Me...

You would know that I am easily entertained. My odd sense of humor might be a factor. I think awkward situations are funny. I think it's funny when Bella is so excited to show me a Lego castle only to have it break as she walks up. Oops.

You would know that I have a weird obsession with boobs. I’m not a lezzy, it’s just because I don’t have any. I just looove boobs. It’s gotten to where I know what’s real, what’s fake, and what’s a damn good bra.

You would know that I want a boob job because of the statement above. And am seriously considering it. Hahaha My birthday isn’t until October so that gives you all time…

You would know that I would choose my phone over any phone in the world.
I am that person in the commercial everyone makes fun of. I am that #SG3 girl.
I had the iphone and it was shit compared to the godsend of a phone I have now.
I cried on the phone with the Sprint man when he said it was too late to exchange my phone.
It was serious.

You would know that I hate to drink alcohol.
There are just too many negatives.
The taste alone is sickening. If I can taste it. We're done.
Stupid high cals! If I'm going to use up my calories and sugars, I WILL NOT waste them on alcohol.
More than likely throwing up. Just. Ew.
Oh, and a possible hangover. Definite no.
Possible blackout. I would rather remember how much fun I had. Or lack thereof.
I'd rather smoke. Call me gross, unladylike. Idgaf. I would rather be high for a few hours [aka eat, sleep and giggle] than to drink [aka taste alcohol, take in extra cals, get sick and have a hangover the next day]  #judgeme

You would know that I have two emotions.
Happy and annoyed.
I’m never really sad. I don’t really cry.
If I do, something’s reeeally wrong.
Or it’s 2002 and I’m eleven watching My Girl or Hardball.  
I’m not usually mad.
People don’t anger me.
They irritate me.

You would know that when I say, “Let’s go shopping”, I don’t really mean it. I just like walking around the mall...or Target..or Homegoods and looking at everything. As stated above, easily entertained. I never really have an intention of buying anything. But if I do, that's a plus.

You would know that I might be one of the most passive aggressive people you will ever meet. I will never yell at you. I will just ignore you. I will give you an eye roll. I will stare you down. I will make you feel so uncomfortable that you want me to yell at you.

 You would know I’m not a regular mom. I’m a cool mom…right Regina Bella?

Crafting Ain't Easy

While I've been getting used to my sewing machine, fabrics and techniques, I've come up with a few creations.

First, I made this fun, girly snack bag. Bella loves carrying it around. It is big enough to hold a generous amount of snacks including popcorn...and it closes! I did make another one for her crayons so it's big enough to hold those, too. However, it's not big enough to hold a sandwich but don't worry I'll be making one soon. hehe. 

Next, THE SHORTS THAT WERE A DRESS. I attempted some shorts for myself...yeah. They were super cute and super tight. I got the material from a dress and thought I could make it work. [And believe me when I say I tried. I worked on this baby for hours trying to figure out how to fix them] But I thought wrong. So instead I'm just going to make it a maxi skirt for Bella.

Here, I made Bella a shorts and ruffled tank set (haven't made the straps yet) from an old dress and one of my old tees. This turned out pretty cute but the straps are literally the most annoying thing to make.So I've kind of been procrastinating on that...It's not like she can wear it while we're in NY.

And finally, my favorite creation..ever. 
 I cannot say how much I adore this little sweater. I have been looking all over for one [for both me and Bella] but no luck. Then I remembered about the ill fitting sweater from H & M that was just coolin' it in the back of my closet. Duh, make one for Bella! It's slouchy but not sloppy. It can be worn whenever because of it's fabric. I have this idea of her wearing this with jeggings, brown leather boots and a top knot bun. I'm dying at the thought.

Home Sweet Georgia

I am soooo very happy to be back in Georgia.
I have missed this weather and crazy people I call my family.

My heart was about to beat out of my chest when I saw Lindsey and Andrew. 
They are my people. I love them so much. They are considered family, too. 

It was just good to have sincere, silly and special encounters.
Encounters from conversations to parties to days at the park and the blunt on the trampoline. Haha.

My brother and sister are on spring break this week so I got to hang out with them all day everyday. They are just as fun to be around as I remember. We went bike riding and for a run/walk around the neighborhood a few times and had dinner in the gazebo. I cannot express how much I LOVE THIS WEATHER. It has been beautiful every day we have been here...with the exception of today because apparently there is supposed to be a wild ass storm. But my brother will be gone so it's just Aiya and me and we will watch as much Gossip Girl as we possibly can. (I'm trying to see if there are any hints of it being Dan.)

Then tomorrow I get to see my big brother, Ray, his son, Cam (who is cute beyond words) and my Aunt Di aka mamaD aka mom #2.  I've missed them so much and cannot wait to see them.

Whew. It's hard to believe I've been here for over a week! I don't want to leave yet. Bella is having way too much fun with my mom's jewelry, stalking Lantz and releasing the dog from his cage. I'm obsessing over the weather, good cooking and free entertainment for Bella. But we'll be back soon.

Plus Devon just sounds pathetic and lonely so maybe it's time we go back.

We know the true meaning of Easter. 

So don't judge too hard when I tell you we celebrated with an egg hunt and Easter baskets.

I made Devon's Easter basket with candy and beer. Classy.

I made Bella's with random things that we thought she'd like.

Oh, did I mention I made Bella's dress? 
I only worked on it for SEVEN hours but at least it came out semi cute.
 I know the quality is terrible but I had to post them.
These faces. I can't even..

Then we [aka Devon's parent's since we're staying with them] hosted Easter brunch. 
There was at least twenty people here. And only nine were our family. Haha.
The rest were the neighbors and their family. 
But they served sangria's so everything was fine.

Then we tried taking family pictures...

Hey, I said we tried.

Happy Easter!
