Happy Halloween everyone!! I love this time of the year. Halloween is the start of all of the wonderful holidays to follow in the next few months... I can't wait! Halloween of course isn't nearly as much fun as it was when I was little, but I still enjoy it. Unfortunately where we are living this year we won't get any trick or treaters b/c it's such a busy road, not in a neighborhood. :( But we may go with a friend and take his 2 kids out which will be fun!

I realized I didn't post anything on here yesterday. Bad me! I was busy at work and then went home and cooked Justin dinner. We had fried pork chops and gravy, homemade mashed potatoes, and corn. He was so happy! We rarely eat anything like that anymore. I'd like for us to start cooking and eating together more often though. Especially if we have kids soon because I'd like for them to have a schedule of some sort and of course healthy dinners.

Speaking of kids, I have a RE appointment on Monday. It's just a consultation to see what we our options are for having children. I'm nervous about it though I don't know why. I want Justin to go with me but I don't think he is. We shall see. Hopefully all will go well.

Well back to work for me... I'm outtie LOL!

Hungry and Tired

I think that's how I spend the majority of my life lol, hungry and tired. It's 11:00 a.m. I'm at work and so ready for lunch. I'm not going to have much time to eat b/c I have to drive home (20 minutes) and get some money out of the bank for Justin to go get a hair cut and oil change for his blazer, take that to him, grab some food and come back to work with not a minute to spare. And I wonder why I'm so tired all of the time?! I think I'm anemic again actually.. that would account for my lack of energy. Oh well, I'll get it checked out eventually.

My brother came home from Colorado last night. He was gone for 10 days! His girlfriend came over and brought him homemade chocolate chip cookies which he was nice enough to share.. yummm! We all watched the newest Harry Potter movie. After that Carl (that's my brother by the way) and his girlfriend, Maggie, went to his room. Justin and I were laying in the recliner together.. I sat in his lap and he tickled me and we played around and laughed. It's so nice when we have moments like those. Our relationship has been so wonderful lately, not that it wasn't before, but we've just connected a lot more. Despite the times when I do wonder why I married a 10 year old haha we have such an amazing marriage. The more I hear about other relationships the more grateful I am for ours.

Ok so just change the title of the post to "Hungry, Tired, and in a semi-sweet mood". I'll spare you for now... I'm going to finish up my last bit of work and go to the bank and what not. Peace lol!

My First Blog!


So this is my first blog/first post. Not really sure what all to say so I'll just go with it...
I'm Amanda, I'm 23 years old and happily married to my best friend, Justin!! We have been together since 2002 and I finally broke him down lol and we got married July 2006. I can't imagine my life without him, I'm definitely a lucky woman!

I work at an architect firm during the day as the office manager. It's a great, steady job for now. I'm not sure what I want to do with the rest of my life, but really who does?! I'll decide on something one day. I do LOVE graphic design. It's my favorite hobby (other than my husband of course). I design free graphics on VIP Signatures. Mainly for mommies from boards like Babycenter and such. Check it out I also have a myspace page for invites, cards, announcements, etc. at I really enjoy designing something unique for each person. I hope someday I can turn it into something bigger than just a hobby. I also use some of that creative energy to do digital scrapbooking. I haven't gotten very far but once I have kids I hope to create something very special for them to look back on in many years. I would also love to learn to create my own scrapbook kits but I haven't quite figured that one out yet.

Well the hubby is hungry so I shall be back later. Thanks for reading my first post!!! :)
