All my favorite men…

I started thinking today about all the celebrity crushes I’ve had over the years.  And there have been a lot! Many have come and gone, and a select few have always stayed close to my heart.  So as a treat for me as well as all the ladies out there, I’m going to share someContinue reading “All my favorite men…”

What defines courage?

I will be sharing 2 blog posts this week.  One will be serious.  Since I have already opened the controversial can of worms with my last TWO posts, apparently, I thought I might as well go for a 3rd.  My 2nd post this week will be purely comic relief.  So stay tuned! Since the appearanceContinue reading “What defines courage?”

Dear Duggars:

I have never had the intention of getting political/controversial on this blog.  My posts are normally intended for fun and relatability, and I don’t ever want to try to ruffle feathers.  But since I am sitting here fuming over what I just witnessed, I feel I must get this out or else something in myContinue reading “Dear Duggars:”

London BABY!

I have officially reached Defcon 1.  And it’s not because of all the severe spring weather we seem to be having lately. (Note, I’m an Okie and I take severe weather seriously.)  No, I’m on high alert about something very important, something very near and dear to my heart.  Something that is going to changeContinue reading “London BABY!”

My crappy blog introduction

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. Continue reading “My crappy blog introduction”
