About Me

That's me - Amanda, age 28

That's my extremely good-looking hard-ass husband - Jerry, age 34.


 Daughter #1 - Emily,born July 2010

Daughter #2 - Caroline, born July 2013

A few things...

- I don't like to paint my fingernails colors.  I don't like that they wouldn't match every outfit, so I just leave them unpolished. I always have my toenails painted pink/red, or my very festive, fall favorite, dark plum.

- I drink way too much diet soda.

- I love airports but I hate flying.

- I think Bill Paxton is kinda hot (think Twister and Big Love, not Hatfields & McCoys).

- I will watch any movie Tom Hanks is in.  I refuse to watch any movie Tom Cruise is in.

- I think Here Comes Honey Boo Boo is an abomination, but I watch Dance Moms.

- Sometimes I think I could run a daycare.  Then I drop my kids off at daycare and I can't wait to leave.  It takes a special person to love other peoples' kids like your own. 

- I get really angry at myself when I spell something wrong on Facebook. 

- I wish there was a job where I could spend all day browsing Pinterest and reading organization blogs.  

- I will always watch The Green Mile and Van Helsing if they're on TV.

- I can't stand it when people sing when they don't know the words.

- My best friend and I have known each other for 18 years.  We might not see each other for months, but when we do, it's like we saw each other yesterday.

- Fall is my favorite season but I don't particularly like Halloween.

- I used to have 108 *NSYNC posters on my bedroom walls.  And I guarantee I could sing every one of their songs right now.

- I saw Beverly Hills Ninja in the theater.  No, seriously.

The blog's title is taken from "our song" - Incubus's "Anti-gravity Love Song".  Because I'm not clever enough to come up with something catchy on my own (hopefully Incubus won't sue me for using it...)


  1. So.... I absolutely love the movie Twister! For some reason I must watch it anytime it's on TV. I also must watch ALL Tom Hanks movies. He is amazing. :D
