Dear Google

Dear Google,

Thank you for assuming that when I type ‘skunk’ into the search box, I meant I wanted to look at pictures of pot plants.

Unknown Amanda fact:
My favorite animal is a skunk.

It was a love that began with my first Disney movie. I love Flower from Bambi.

And sadly, when I verify ‘Flower the Skunk’ in Google, I still got weed.

But I want one. They’re so darn cute. They’re like cats but awesomer.

Baby skunks are even better.

And I have always said since WAY before Kyson was even a thought in my mind that I would always dress my son up as a skunk his first Halloween.

So after his NICU reunion Thursday, I’m running back to Old Navy to get his little skunk costume. I’m so stinkin excited.

And just so you know, Old Navy has some really cute costumes for babies and toddlers for around 20 bucks!!

They even have a cheeseburger.

We had so much fun Halloween shopping today. Wednesday isn’t so wordless this time, but it’s very cute.

Chasing Our Christmas Presents

Went out to talk to Kyle while he smoked a cigarette and a cow came busting through the fence. So now I’m standing on the porch with an AK and a handful of kittens at my feet, hoping a coyote doesn’t try to eat me while I’m watching my husband chase a big fat heifer down the road at midnight with two really big dogs barking after them.

Times like this make me appreciate living on a farm. Never a dull moment.

I have a paisley peasant blouse that when I wear it, Kyle calls me Mama Cass. I’ve seen her on TV before (and on Scooby Doo!) and they always make her out to be this big nasty heiferball. We all have heard the ham sandwich thing. (it’s not true!) If you haven’t, it can be found on google.

So I was reading a friend’s blog (A Spicy Boy, A Cat, and My Fat Ass)and came across a hippy costume she was reviewing that I really liked alot. And being a little on the so fat I could die side, it’s hard to find a good Halloween costume. Like the ones at party stores SAY plus size but they fit a size 12. I’m sorry, but I don’t consider 12 a plus size! So the only thing you really can pick is the least flattering moomoo/circus tent and hope you can fix the neckline to fall lower so you can show off at least a little bit of skin. But usually I end up making my own costume like Beth (Dog the Bounty Hunters wife) or an emo kid or I could just crossdress. It sucks.

Yes, this is me as a redneck last Halloween.

So basically I commented about not wanting to look like Mama Cass. But after I said that I googled her pictures to see some of her outfits and they’re really not all that bad. And she really was a very pretty woman. Big girl partied with Jimi Hendrix!!!!

So I’m sorry Mama Cass. I will wear my paisley shirt with pride from now on and I think I’ll be a hippy for Halloween because if I had just a little more double chin, we kind of look alike. I could totally pull it off.

If you can’t beat fat, at least laugh about it!

I don’t know why but I saw this fairy Barbie at ToysRUs and it reminded me of you! ❤


Kristi is making these really cute frames to help raise money for a friend’s mom who has cancer. She’s very talented and can make them however you want. They’re 5×7 and cost only $7. So cute!!
