Blah, Blah, Blah

Hey all! It's been a while! I had to take a step back from the blogging world for a bit. I haven't read or posted a blog for a week now and it was good for me. But I'm back in the saddle!

Kinda sucks, though, because I have seriously nothing to post about.

I've been hip-deep in planning the biggest first birthday bash in the history of first birthday bashes. Harley turns one on May 23rd but we're having his party this Saturday. Why? Well let me tell you. My family usually travels on Memorial Day weekend. Most of us have camp trailers. Half of us have boats and it's a big weekend for them. (My husband refuses to travel on holiday weekends because of the crowds. Lame.) So because Harley's birthday is Mem Day weekend I planned his party for the weekend before. Well, guess what??? My freaking family STILL can't come!!! To say I'm annoyed about this would be a gross understatement. I gave them PLENTEEEE of notice. (I don't include DeNae in this group because she lives out of town so she's forgiven.) I think my dad's gonna come and maybe one of my sisters and I don't know about one of my brothers. Whatever. It's going to be a great party and if any of you locals want to come I'd love to have you!

Speaking of May 16th, I'm sure all of you know this already but Sher is running a marathon on that day so pop over and wish her luck!

I've been rocking the tips at work lately. I made $150 in two nights. I worked tonight and it was freakin DEAD! Where were all the beer drinkers??? Don't they know I've got another birthday party to plan when I get done with Harley's? They don't care. Remember that one night? Well those people came in tonight (at EIGHT FORTY-FREAKING-FIVE!!!!!) and asked if I was going to dump the drinks all over the place again. Sorry, folks! The circus pulled out of town that night. Can I just say that they stayed for 45 minutes after we closed? Rude.

K, so there's the post. Lame, I know. But guess what?? This is post number 99. Do you know what that means? It means that next post has to be something fantastic! I could do that thing where I tell you 100 random things about myself but I've kinda done that here and here and here. So what's it going to be? A GIVEAWAY!!! Yippeeeee! I'm gonna be one of those people and tell you that if you're not already a follower you stand no chance of winning. (Except for that one girl who stopped following everyone and went all incognito. She knows who she is and she's still qualified.)

So stay tuned! And thanks to those of you who asked about me. It's nice to be missed a little!

Sounds like an awesome birthday party! Email me the time and I may be able to come. I've got a baby shower that day for my sister in law so it depends on the time.

Sorry your family can't come. That's no good.

I'll send all the beer drinkers I know your way...but I don't know very many.

Vanessa said...

Of course you were missed. I love my daily dose of Amber!

GreenJello said...

I was wondering where the heck you've been! :)

Bummer about the party-- my extended family is actually really good about family birthday parties, so I guess I'm spoiled.

I'm not sure what I'm doing this Saturday-- it seems like there's something I'm supposed to do, but I can't remember. LOL Send me the info anyway, and I'll see what my schedule is. :)

We are one of the lame family members that can't come on Saturday. You had the pick the ONE Saturday of the month that was impossible for us. SO sorry.

I'll be thinking of your fun party while I'm running around like a chicken with it's head off, trying to figure out how to practice 2 teams, put 3 more on stage (all at the same time, 3 different stages)while looking for at least 2 team members that have decided to not pay attention to the time and ride just one more ride, help the other student figure out what to wear because they forgot their black dance pants and only have green shorts, and repeat this ALL DAY LONG with about 35 dances. Would much rather be at your party! HAPPY BIRTHDAY HARLEY, WE LOVE YOU.

DeNae said...

WTH?? Jen drops off the bloggywood radar and then shows up again to comment on your blog? I hope one of her dancers pees herself on stage -- teach her to ignore me over here.

And I'm sorry, your little amateur party's got nothin' on what the carefree folks in PR do for a one-year old. Our drug dealing ('pharmaceutical rep' my small domesticated farm animal) neighbor hosted a shin dig for a one year old who didn't even belong to him and it went three days. That's right, sistah. Three, 24 hour long days. Oh, the homicidal thoughts at 3 a.m. when we could hear the revelers jumping off of OUR roof into THEIR pool.

Gosh, I hated that one year old.

DeNae said...

...but I love Harley. Happy Birthday, Sweetie! And Amber, keep everyone off my roof. I mean it.

You seriously crack me up. Happy 99th post!

I think I need to quit being a social worker and start being a waitress! Holy cow!

veronica said...

So glad to see that you're back! Sounds like Harley's party is going to be the event of the year. Just remember, you'll have to top it next year.

I still need to come see you at work and sit in your section. I don't drink beer, but I'm a very good tipper!

Casey said...

Yay for Harley's party but boo for people not showing up. Elliot and I check the mail every day but still no invitation so far.

I hate when people stay late at a restaurant. I won't even go to one if they're closing in the next hour since I know the wait staff is trying to get out of there.

And no fair, I don't follow ANYONE since I just use my reader. What's the big deal with following anyway?

Mrsbear said...

Sounds like it's going to be a big bash, luckily the tips will help fund it...;) glad to see you back. can't wait for number 100.

wendy said...

YEAH your baaaaaack. I have been checking every day on you. (I'll have to email you, got stuff to tell) anyway, that does suck that your family isn't going to be to the BIGGEST PARTY OF ALL TIME for a one year old. (well, maybe a few will) I have learned over the years, with my 5 kids and spouses it is a MIRACLE when we are all able to be together at the same time. to many obligations.
sorry I wasn't there to drink the beer --I MEAN EAT RIBS (TEE,HEE)

tiburon said...

Glad you are back!! :)

Melissa said...

It's about freakin time you are back!! YAY for birthday parties! BOO for family that can't come. More cake for you right?

And did you say GIVEAWAY? Standing by.....

Sher said...

Hey, I am blogging and texting you at the same time! Wait, I'll got facebook you too!

Hey, do you need anything to giveaway? Perhaps a CD?

Cravings said...

Oh don't be fooled, I'm not churchy, I go but I am no where close being any molly mormon :) Hey how was your babies bday? Your so funny! See you Wednesday!
