20 Facts about me

So day 2 of my blog life is 20 facts about me.  I think its a good idea for a second post so you guys, my followers, can get to know me a little better!

1. I am a HUGE Harry Potter fan.  I mean a complete and total nerd about it and obviously not afraid to admit it!

2. My favorite tv show is The Big Bang Theory. I’ve seen every episode multiple times and i still laugh out loud every time I watch.

3. I did gymnastics for 14 years. I would still do it if i could find a gym…..or the time to do it.

4. I took piano lessons for 12 years and still play when I can.

5. I wasn’t sure I ever wanted to have any children until the moment I found out I was pregnant. Now I cant imagine my life without my son.

6. I was always a strong proponent of “engagement, marriage and then baby.” But getting pregnant made me realize that my husband was the right man for me and the only person I could picture raising my children with.

7. My favorite clothing stores are express and Ann Taylor.

8. It took me 12 weeks to get back into my pre-pregnancy jeans. I still have 10 pounds to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight, but the jeans officially button.

9. My favorite song is “Fall” by Something Corporate.

10. I own 67 pairs of shoes, 2 of which are designer (1 louboutins and 1 choo’s).

11. My favorite color is purple.

12. My style is classic and tailored, but I always wish I could pull off a hipster style like boho or grunge. (P.S. I can’t)

13. I am an only child and I’m ok with that.

14. I am 5’1″ and I love being short.

15. My go-to outfit is jeans, a t-shirt and a black blazer with stilettos

16. I have red hair and I’ve never wanted to dye it.

17. I am perfectly content curling up on the couch with a book or my husband and movie….than going out to the bars.

18. I have never been out of the country except for one weekend in Toronto when I was 9.

19. I think ceiling fans were an amazing invention and every bedroom should have one.

20. I am not a person who has regrets. There are lots of things that have happened in my life that I’m not happy with, but I wouldn’t be who or where I am right now if those things didn’t happen to me.

I hope this is some insight into who I am.

Have a nice night!!!

Introduction

Hi all,

So i’m gonna try this blog thing.  My name’s Amanda.  I live in the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio with my wonderful husband and our beautiful baby boy. I was in public accounting before I had my little bean, and now i’m looking for a new more mom-friendly job.  I’ve always been a huge fan of fashion.  Sitting on my couch with a cup of coffee and Vogue magazine is a favorite past time.  Although now my coffee has been replaced with water and my Vogue has been replaced with a burp cloth.

My husband and I were married in a small civil ceremony in October before our son was born and now we’re starting the process of planning a big church ceremony and reception with all of our friends and family.

I love my new life, but i’m looking forward to finding a job.  I’m hoping that this blog will help me make the transition and give me something that’s mine to do in my free time.  I’m hoping that this blog will be a combination of fashion, wedding planning and parenting tips.  I promise not to gush about my husband or my baby or make this some outlet for my anger/happiness about my life.   I think this blog will help me reconnect with my love for Fashion.  Hence why i’m starting it on the first day of fashion week.  Not that I have inside access to fashion week, but i felt it was good of a time as any to start.  And, until I find a job, someway to get some “me time” while still being able to watch bean.

I found a pin on pinterest, actually, that made me really make the jump to start blogging.  It’s a 31-day blog challenge.  I plan on completing the 31-day challenge as my foray into the blog-o-sphere along with any other posts I feel like posting.
