Research for Change

First of all, who takes all these pictures of people laying around together as a couple? Do they hire someone to stay in their house and follow them around just to take pictures for Instagram? Seems fishy to me.  I am for real asking that question though. Do they have someone they pay money to, to take pictures of them for social media? Because if so, I am betting they make a decent amount of money, and I think I could totally do that job. Except for the fact, I live in Alabama, and I have a kid, husband and a house to take care of. Come to think of it, it probably wouldn't work out that great, but it sure sounds wonderful to try and make some extra money that way. Taking pictures, seems easy and legit, right? 

Not only have I been busy lately, which is why you haven't heard from me. But I basically just didn't want to sit and type. There I said it; I didn't want to blog. I felt like I needed a break. It's not like I post every day and talk so much that I needed this long break to ponder about life. I just didn't want to. Plus I have been swamped for a bit with designs, doing a few researching on various topics. That I won't even mention here, because let's be honest, nobody wants to discuss stuff that is controversial anymore. We might hurt each other's feelings, and heaven forbid everyone isn't happy ALL THE TIME.  

Come on; you know what I'm talking about. When we disagree with someone, it's almost like we just can't talk to that person anymore. If they don't think as we do, or vice versa, all you know what breaks loose. However, isn't it interesting just to hear a different side of subjects?  I mean I'll admit it when someone doesn't see a side I do, it just hits you in the gut. In reality, though, why can't we just accept it and move on. Agree to disagree. 

No, I don't have some quarrel with someone. But sometimes you read or watch information on subjects that you have a new found respect or light on it. You just want to share it with everyone, and I can see how some people become "bible pushers" on certain subjects. 

So you know like a month ago it was fathers day, and I didn't post anything on any kind of social media. However, we did do a "thing" for them. We all had a lovely nice dinner with our dad and grilled out and overate. I had some cool whip I needed to use so, of course, what else do you do? You make "ice cream" sandwiches, right? SURE! So I had some graham crackers, cool whip (slightly frozen) and some chocolate chips, blueberries, and strawberries. Make a sandwich with those, and you have three different "ice-cream sandwiches" to eat after frozen of course. The kids and adults loved them! I, however, did not even eat one. Sad I know. But I had some amazing chocolate chip cake, two pieces to be exact. That, I don't have a recipe for though. One day, one day I will get a certain someone to share that. In the mean time, make some homemade ice-cream sandwiches and have fun. Oh and for the love, if you need someone to take pictures of you so you can earn followers on social media, I may or may not be available for a certain amount. 

I think the pictures are self explanatory though, don't you think?
