♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
First of all I would like to thank Amanda for inviting me to do this! I’m not going to lie, when she first mentioned it, I started sweating profusely and was trying to figure out how I was going to pull this off...I can do it!
So on to my introduction…
Well my name is Amanda and I write over at Bring Up Allie, talking about me, my family and most of all my journey as a first time stay-at-home Momma. I started my blog back in March and I guess you could say it’s been my little savior. My life can get a bit stressful and honestly sometimes I’d just like to rip my hair out, my blog gives me the chance to cool off and get away for a bit.
And now onto the personal tid bits…
My husband and I met in 2005 through mutual friends. Our first date was a little unconventional to say the least. We started our date with a nice dinner at Hooters followed by a movie, and then did some Coyote hunting into the wee hours of the next morning. The following day we took a trip to a tattoo shop, where he got some ink. I fell in love right then and there (but I definitely did not tell him that). There’s just something about men with tattoos! I remember coming home after the day at the tattoo shop, jumping up and down telling my parents I was going to marry him. My mom bet $5 that I wouldn’t and I still have yet to see that $5.
Anyway, fast forward to 2008.
Loren proposed, we were engaged for 2 years and got married in January of 2010 in the Bahamas.
About a year after marriage we decided we wanted to start trying to have a baby. Which brings us to November 17th, 2011 when our little Allie Mae arrived, 2 weeks late and 8lbs 1oz. The first night home was pure hell, and I was really regretting our decision to reproduce. Lol Things got better though and get better every day. Now Allie Mae is almost 8 months old. I can’t believe how fast time has flown. Now we have a little girl who loves to crawl, has 2 teeth (a third coming soon), and is into everything.
Being a parent is extremely tough sometimes but is the greatest blessing. Wouldn't trade her for anything.
So, come on over and check out my blog and introduce yourself. I love meeting new people!
