Glossies Made Me Do It {Button Pins, Instyle & Sarah Silverman}

Glossies Made Me Do It {Button Pins, Instyle Magazine & Sarah Silverman}

I have wanted to join Glossies Made Me Do It for a few months. Glossies Made Me Do It is a monthly linkup hosted by Ashley, Lauren and Erika, these wonderful ladies encourage you to allow a magazine (glossie) to inspire you and share how that magazine inspired you. For instance this month Ashley was inspired by Redbook  to try out this fruit galette recipe, she put her own spin on it.

Glossies Made Me Do It! Button Pins, InStyle Magazine and Sarah SilvermanWhat did glossies make me do this month?

This month I received a FREE InStyle magazine, I don’t know why, or who sent it, but I am thankful that I received it. I haven’t purchased an InStyle magazine for a couple years, so it was a nice change of pace. Well, sort of. When I opened it up and looked through the first couple of pictures I felt a little out of style. I instantly wanted to change and maybe add a little color to my face. However, I dived a little deeper into the magazine and started to read an article that grabbed my attention instantly.

Sarah Silverman and InStyle Magazine

via GIPHY

You must note here that the TV is was on in the background, last week’s RHONY played. I was waiting to get to the part I had left off at last time I had tried to watch it. It was currently at the part where Carole and her mom were canvassing Pennsylvania for HRC votes. It was like fate or something, because the article I was about to get swept into was about Sarah Silverman and her mother. In the article Sarah Silverman speaks about how her mother influenced her own activism. She speaks of how her mother was always active in politics putting her voice out there and sporting the most fabulous button pins to continue spreading the word. 

Sarah Silverman has certainly carried on her mother’s love for staying informed and engaged when it comes to politics. If you take a look through  her Twitter, you’ll see that she’s quite fired up when it comes to tackling politics. Sadly, Silverman lost her mother, but she still holds on to her mother’s memories, which includes her mother’s button pin collection.

There were two takeaways from this article for me: 1) I need to do more. I need to make sure my actions and words spark something within my daughters the way Sarah’s mom (and Carole’s mom) did. 2) I want to collect a super rad button collection.

Glossies Made Me Do It

I’m working on the takeaways. I even started checking out some buttons on Etsy, to get my collection going. I haven’t purchased any yet, but trust me, it’s going to happen. The thing about selling on Etsy, you end up spending on Etsy. 😀

Getting to know Me, Link-Up

Hey It’s Okay!

I’m joining Hey, It’s Okay Tuesday on a TUESDAY!! Amber of Airing My Laundry has a weekly linkup to share what you’re okay with.  I highly recommend you join, it’s fun. I feel like I’m in confessional. Although, I’ve never been in a confessional; my blog is one big confessional. I mean you’re not seeing me when I’m professing some pretty profound shhtuff here. Okay, not that deep and profound. Well, there was this post, and this post, or this post, oh wait, what about this post. But then again, I’ve created squishy play dough, chilaquiles, BACON CHOCOLATE, which reminds me I have something I’m okay with! I’ll share that below.

Hey, It's Okay!

Hey, It’s Okay

… that my family and I have cut down on the bacon, actually we’re cutting down on our meat consumption. I’m not sure how my (Mexican) grandma would feel about this, but I made vegetarian tacos again last night- it was a hit, again! We do not use fake meat, you know, the soy stuff. No. I use vegetables: cauliflower, peppers, onions, and your standard taco toppings. 🙂

… that I’m not sure if I could ever give up a burger. Okay, that’s dramatic, I have given up burgers in the past.

… that during an intense conversation with my husband about happiness, life, and death I started quoting The Office. My love for The Office is real (see here and here).

Michael Scott

… that I’m not sure if I’m okay with this year zooming by. Umm.. Happy March! However, I am ready for some sunshine. 🙂

… that I got emotional watching the first episode of Fuller House. I know it’s cheesy, but eh the kids and I can enjoy a show together.

… that I cannot wait for Friday! 1) Because Fridays are my favorite. 2) HOUSE OF CARDS!!! 3) Thank You Notes  4) It’s the freakin’ weekend.

 

… that I’m not on Snapchat. I’m just not sure I need it with all my other 105 social media accounts. Also, just a question, if you’re on Snapchat aren’t your snaps (?) suppose to disappear? If that’s the case, uh oh they’re showing up on Instagram!

… that I’m about to plug my giveaway. Have you entered?

Thank you, family, for our Monday night jam session… or art session. ? It was nice to have a Sunday night filled with creating without the worry of Monday’s schedule. (Does it look like my husband is trying to use the force?)

Thank you, girls, for all the sweets you bake. ? Seriously, the treats are WONDERFUL, but mama is trying to get ready for the summer. Okay, I wouldn’t mind some more of those cupcakes again.

Thank you, PNW, for Korean food!! I grew up eating Korean food; kimchi, Korean pancakes, and bulgogi were childhood favorites. When I left Texas I made sure to buy my own bulgogi pan, so my kids would enjoy Korean food. Illinois had a few Korean spots, South Carolina… not so much, so thankfully the PNW has this:

Thank you, #DNDChallenge. I know I’ve already missed a few days (I’ll make it up) but I enjoy pushing myself to set aside creative time. I’ll try to do better next week. 

Thank you, Instagram friends! I gather so much creative inspiration from Instagram. I’m really loving IG these days. 🙂

What is Hey, It’s Okay Tuesday?

I got this idea from Glamour magazine. They have a section called Hey, It’s Okay and will list a bunch of things to be okay about. You’re welcome to join in and do something like this on your blog. Doesn’t have to be on a Tuesday either. Just make sure you link up and that the post you link up is a Hey, It’s Okay Post. Grab the button if you’d like!- Amber

It’s okay…..

  • … that I’m posting my Hey, It’s Okay Tuesday post on a Wednesday. It’s even more okay that Wednesday is almost over and I’m finally getting this post up (because I was chatty on the phone today). 🙂
  • Mirror| The Chronicles of Chaos … that I can totally relate to this post by Mia of The Chronicles of Chaos.
  • … that I’ve become slightly obsessive with keeping track of my steps via my Fitbit. More Okay: That I’m whipping my husband’s buns!
  • … that I’m proud of myself for sticking to my word by flourishing with my writing, creating, and photography.
  • … that I can somewhat relate to this song. Anyone else?
  • … that I would like 60 extra minutes of creative time a day to: paint, draw, color, hot glue, or write with no cares or worries.
  • … that I was happy with the response to my post about my last fling.
  • … that I will probably write a Thank You Note for that. ^^^^^^^^^
  • … that I have a love/hate relationship with Google.
  • … that sometimes I wonder if I should start all over with my blog. (Don’t listen to me, I’m just ranting because I’m not tech savvy.)
  • Thumbs Up Dog| Hey, It's Okay… that sometimes I wish my dog had thumbs, so he could let himself out and in. #LazyHuman
  • … that I wish I knew what my dog was thinking.
  • … that I’m cutting this post short, so I can eat.

Jimmy’s Thank You Notes:  


Thank You, Jimmy!

Thank You, Christmas Break!! Our vacation was much needed. We took our two weeks to rest and relax, and it was awesome! We didn’t do anything fancy, unless you consider playing the Wii in matching pajamas fancy. 🙂 We played with all the games the kids received for Christmas, watched all the Christmas movies, ate the carbs, STAR WARS, and enjoyed each other’s company (even though there was a touch of bickering ?).

Christmas 2015

Thank you, Crystal, for delivering Just Dance 2016 & almond milk on New Year’s Day!!! Can you believe Amazon delivers on New Year’s Day? I couldn’t believe it, but they do, and I felt crappy about it, so we tipped Crystal nicely & gave her a SBUX gift card. Crystal delivered a memory maker. 🙂  I think the kids will remember the days when their silly parents danced danced with them, I know I will not forget these days with my babies and my babe- good times. Also, it’s been great cardio! Thanks Crystal + Amazon!

Just Dance 2016

Thank you, New Year, for being that push of renewal we all need. I’m excited to read everyone’s goals and little words for 2016. Good Luck, friends!! We can do this. 😉

I choose to flourish this year.

Also, New Year’s Eve/Day, thanks for giving us an excuse to put together a backdrop to take silly pictures and slo-mo videos. TAMALES TOO!!

Happy 2016

Tamale making 2016

Thank you, Christmas calories, for being the gift that keeps on giving.

 

My husband forgot to give me these chocolates for Christmas. I found them while I was restocking our pantry yesterday, he insisted I try them with him when he came home for lunch. I didn’t want to be rude 😀
