Hey guys, happy Friday! How was your week? Are you also depressed that there was no Bachelorette this week?

Anyway, my mom came in yesterday! Kicked that off by realizing that the Jeep had a flat tire minutes before I needed to leave for the airport to get her. Luckily the boyfriend was here and got it changed for me because otherwise?

I would’ve sat in my driveway and cried.

I haven’t seen my mom in almost a year – crazy, right? I mean, we talk pretty much every day of our lives but still. Of course the boys started begging to go to the lake as soon as she stepped off the plane so we ended up spending a couple hours floating around.

Happy Friday!

This week flew by. The month flew by actually. How is May almost over?! My kids’ last day of school is next week and I’m gonna be real honest with you, I have no clue where they’re going to school next year. Like, I don’t even know what state they’re to go to school in. That’s where my life is right now.

So the end of the school year is exciting because you know I love summer and all the fun that comes along with it but it’s also super stressful because… I really just need someone to figure out my entire life for me so I don’t have to make any more decisions.

That’d be great.

I’ll talk about it all eventually, don’t even worry.

Spicy Salty Dog - a twist on the classic grapefruit cocktail!

Guuuuuys.

Bad news.

I’m sick. Again.

Whyyyy does this happen to me?

And it’s extra lame because the only thing I want to do right now is spend all my time in the woods and I can’t do that when I feel like death.

Heeeeey guys, happy Friday!

Is everyone as excited as I am that the week is over? The kids are out of school today so I probably won’t leave my house at all. I may not leave my bedroom.

I may watch The Great British Baking Show in bed all day.

I have had a week.

A. Week.

I would like to never think about this week again, mmkay?

So I made cocktails. A beer cocktail! How weird, right?

I’ve maintained that I hate beer for all 29 years of my life (no one fact check that number thanks) but I’m, like, really obsessed right now. Sorry to all the guys I’ve dated that I made fun of for “being really into craft beer”. I get it now, guys. I get it.

Hurricane Pops! The classic Hurricane cocktail as a popsicle! Perfect for Mardi Gras!

TGIF!

You guys. We’re headed to New Orleans today – the boys are going to their first ever New Orleans Mardi Gras and we are SO EXCITED.

We meant to go last year but uhhh… you know, the assault happened and my protective order hearing was the day after Mardi Gras. So yeah, obviously had to cancel. But we’re going this year!

We’re from Mobile originally (the home of Mardi Gras in the US) so the boys have been to Mardi Gras but the celebrations in the 2 cities are so different and I feel like they really need to experience both. And we’re staying with family that we haven’t seen since last summer so it’ll be a good time.

Follow along on Instagram and Snapchat (amandalivesay) if you want to see what we’re up to!
