memes + fake nails + a camper

-  if you pass a vehicle that is towing something behind it (like maybe a camper), and they are driving extreeeeeeeemely slow, just think to yourself that maybe it's possible that it's that driver's first time ever pulling something. maybe that person volunteered to drive because her husband was getting sleepy, and she wanted to make it home safely. but that meant pulling a camper - in the dark - for the first time in her (hypothetical) thirty years of life. (it's me. i was the driver.)

-  oh, we bought a camper! jared came home from work (hence why he was so tired on the drive back to kansas) and asked if we could go on a spontaneous road trip down to tulsa. i said i didn't want to go, but i would go anyway. (i know there's another wife out there who gets me here!) so we loaded into his truck quickly + dropped jackson off with my parents + headed to tulsa. i knew when jared said he was "looking" at campers that it meant we would be buying one soon.

-  the best thing i discovered this week was "dark mode" on the new IOS update.

-  i enjoy having a nice manicure. (one that i do myself because i am not paying $25 for something i can do myself!). but sometimes painting my nails is annoying. and then they chip a few days later. recently i have come across impress nails from a few instagram friends. i tried them out this week. well... i'm not that impressed. (see what i did there?) they are nice, don't get me wrong. but it uses adhesive instead of glue, and the nails definitely aren't solid on my actual nails. BUT i will still wear them because they're cheap + as long as i'm careful enough, they are fine. it beats the alternative though. (i have also heard about these kiss nails that use glue. i will report back with a review of them soon).

-  how is it already november?!

-  my instagram handle has been joyfulamber for eight years, but lately i really have this urge to change it.

-  one of my friends shared this meme, and it slays me. if you're thinking to yourself, "but amber- you use essential oils. you even sold them, right?" correct + correct. but after being on both sides of the spectrum, i have strong opinions. i diffuse EOs all the time. but it's everything else that goes along with an MLM that i can't get on board with. the "classes" i took for the "business" side was . . . interesting. i'm going to leave it there. mostly because my opinion about MLMs doesn't really matter. let people do what they do, i suppose.

-  also- my one of my love languages is memes, so if you send/tag me in one, we're BFFs.

-  i made this PB pumpkin bread twice this week, and it is so dang good!
