Allow me to introduce myself: My name is Amanda, and I hate introductions. How are you supposed to do a blog intro anyway? To me it feels like the first day of school, where the teacher makes you stand up, say your name, and “tell us something about yourself.” I always panic in that situation. All I can think is, well crap, I’m just gonna blurt out the first thing that comes to mind, and it’s gonna be crazy embarrassing! Then all year I’ll be known as the girl who told a room full of strangers on the first day of school that I like to pretend I’m a horse and gallop around everywhere. (You know, like in Monty Python and the Holy Grail?) Sometimes I make an amazing first impression, and sometimes I let on just a little too quickly what a weirdo I am.
But I guess that’s why I’m blogging in the first place. We all have a little weirdo in us, and I think it helps to share that and realize you’re not alone. So now that you know one of my most embarrassing childhood secrets, (yes, the horse thing is true) here’s a few other more relatable facts about me. I have a freakishly tall husband. (Ok, don’t know how many of you can relate to that, but I just like to always point it out.) I have a drama queen for a daughter. I have a crazy little cat. I love movies, music, and food. And I LOVE wine. Speaking of wine, I’m also trying for baby #2 so I will probably write a lot about wine to compensate the fact that I’m gonna have to do without for awhile…sigh.
So, if you find these topics even somewhat intriguing, then come back for more. Sometimes I’m eloquent and sometimes I’m quirky, but I can definitely guarantee some fun and relatability up in here! In closing, I’ll leave a little quote that pretty much sums up my whole reason for blogging in the first place. Until next time, happy Tuesday everyone!
