Fun Friday Fotos... I mean photos!

               Today was supposed to be the day I started my "$300 a month grocery budget" project. And then I was going to do a craft addition too. Yeah, so this didn't happen. I didn't go grocery shopping, I didn't even make a list yet. I haven't been in my craft corner all day.
               I got up this morning and watched the Royal Wedding while Doodle Bug got ready for school. I hadn't been over-the-moon excited about it but man once it started I was glued! And there's nothing like watching all of that beauty to make you look around yourself and say, "I really don't feel like doing the same boring thing right now!"
               So no crafty, no grocery budget, I didn't cook or clean or do dishes. Peanut and I watched movies. Somewhere in there she managed to shove a popcorn kernel into her ear. Hubby got a small rubber tube and suctioned it out really gently so we wouldn't hurt her. That was an interesting moment...
               Doodle Bug's allergies got the best of him a while after he got home from school. While he was resting, Peanut had some water play fun out in the rain. Then Hubby helped her pull and wash a carrot, she was so pleased and was so cute munching away!
               So enjoy some cutey picture of Peanut and her fun in the rain, and carrot amazement!

Why Social networking hates me

Courtesy of
               Okay, I am not a big fan of all of these social networking sites! Back in the 90's I was on ICQ and had my little circle of people I actually knew and wanted to talk to. In the new millennium I was on MySpace for a bit, again with my small circle of friends. Now I'm supposed to be on all these different sites and keep them updated hourly if not daily? I have a Facebook page I hardly ever log in to, and no one I actually know on there. I'm on Twitter and last updated it January 28th! If anyone wants to get a hold of me they can just leave a comment on here, which I check about every other day or email me which comes straight to my phone and I'll get back to you almost immediately. Life is busy enough without have to log in to a dozen different sites to update my status every time the wind blows different! But I digress, if you want to find me on:
Facebook- Amber Bennett
Twitter- AmberAtHH
               As much as I really would love to be like Roo at Nice Girl Notes and have all of them match neatly only my email does! When I went to subscribe to Twitter, HandmadeHappiness had too many letters. With Facebook I didn't know to put it in place of my actual name. So I am online as I am in real life, a big happy mess of eclectic-ness!
               I have yet to figure out how to make buttons that when clicked will take you to my Facebook and Twitter pages. Also I still have to make a new Handmade Happiness button. I am cheap frugal and don't have any special software except the scrapbook program that came with my printer and I don't want to pay someone to create for me so I'll be working on that for a bit. Wish me luck, or better yet tell me what the heck I need to do!!
