What's that in the sky? It's a bird, it's a plane, no it's Supermoon


Letting the animals ... err kids run wild





I run on Starbucks not Dunkin


There was an interesting thought my mom brought to my attention the other day. She saw that I had tweeted that my daughter was going to her father's this weekend. I didn't understand the problem. She said she thought I would only tweet more "professional things" from my "professional" Twitter. My inner voice yelled: 
But then I would never tweet!
I told her I was responding to a fellow photographer and blogger, Sarah from One Starry Night.

Not just that but honestly I don't want to be the normal photographer. I want to shoot alt models. I shot a Suicide Girls shoot. I don't take the normal look and smile family portraits. I capture moments, memories. I'm the ninja photographer.

That is what I want to do. I want to make a statement. A personality. I want to be remembered for my amazing photo skills. Professional is dull. You need to spice it up.

I'm Amanda Jillian aka your Faerie Barista of Moon in a Cup. I run on Starbucks not Dunkin  =p

No soda means mommy takes a trip to the ER

I spent a lovely night in the ER thanks to AJ not napping and being cranky. He tried to steal my Starbucks. I said no. Then he decided he wanted soda. I said no soda.

This is where things got bad.

He decided that no soda was a very bad  answer. He took the 2L bottle of soda and hurled it at my foot. It landed cap first onto my foot. In an attempt to walk away I collapsed to the floor and cried like a baby while holding my foot. Then I called my mommy to come take me to the ER. Since ya know I couldn't drive myself. Plus papa had to stay and watch the kids.

Thankfully it was a short visit. And thank the ever loving Goddess I didn't break anything. I just have a very bad sprain. The longest part was waiting on the x-rays to be read. But then they wrapped me up and shipped me off with a cane. I feel like House now.




I also fear my next trip down will be a concussion from AJ getting a hold of the cane >.<
