A Quick Update from Amy-Land

OK, so I have about two seconds before I have to run out the door and pick up my little turkey from preschool, but I wanted to give you a quick update and say hello!

Life has been very busy for this funny mommy and it's about to get nuttier. I hope to chronicle my adventures on the road here on FunnyYellowMom and continue to tell you about all the groovy deals and products I discover in the mom-o-sphere. It's amazing how much crap there is out there for kids - good and bad. Just LOTS O CRAP, I tell you!!

I'm off to Hawaii this weekend to headline the Laughs For Lions benefit in Honolulu (I know - don't hate) and then back home to shoot a teaser reel for my sitcom pilot. More on this later, but it's going to be a busy couple of weeks.

Then, on September 1, it's my birthday. Or supposedly, my birthday. That's right people. Since I was abandoned on a street as a newborn and lived in an orphanage and foster home until I was 5-1/2 months old. My birthday is estimated, therefore, I think I have the right to celebrate for the entire month of September. Keep an eye out for celebratory photos and stories. Woohoo!

One more thing before I go - my Open Sky Shop is adding a new product soon. It's an amazing organic, raw almond butter from Artisana. And I'm not gonna lie - it's a little pricey, but there's a reason. Um, because it's crazy good and it's more nutritious than the average jar of nut butter on the grocery store shelf. 

The egg salmonella outbreak is yet another example of why we should spend a little more on quality food when we can. I'm no millionaire, but I buy organic and local when possible. I bought the "cheap" eggs and guess what? I got sick. Lots of unhappy flushing in my house for a few days. Lots.

So check back soon to find out more about this almond butter. If you purchase through my Open Sky Shop, there will be a $1 donation made to The Lunch Box Project, helping to bring healthy foods to US schools! Yay!

Better run. Aubrey's preschool is almost done for the morning and I promised her I'd take her to the bank. I get to make a deposit and she gets a lollipop. It's a win-win situation. Then, off to buy teeny, tiny ballet slippers! Awwwwww!
