Let me introduce myself...

Well I figured I should probably introduce myself for anyone who reads my blog :)

Hi! I'm Amanda! I'm just a normal 30 year old trying to figure out life, one day at a time.

I'm originally from New York...and yes I'm one of those people who LOVE NY and always brags about how wonderful it is and how nothing can compare to it. I know this is obnoxious, my husband tells me all the time. haha

Love that skyline

After 18 years living in NY, I moved to Florida for college. This is where I met my awesome husband, J!

We got married in 2010 in St. Augustine Florida. It really was the best day of my life. J makes fun of me all the time because he says I accomplished a life goal when I got married...but it's true. I'm not gonna lie, I always wanted to be married.

We moved up to Maryland, where J is originally from, in 2011. Now, I love NY, but I also really love Maryland. I never really enjoyed living in Florida...I really like the change of seasons, and you don't have that in Florida. It's Hot all year long. I feel like Maryland is where I was supposed to live all long. 

I'm a teacher for the local school district. I teach Pre-K! I know what you're the hell do you do that? LOL Honestly, I love it. Teaching is my passion. It is not an easy job, however, it is the most rewarding thing I've ever done. 

Best part of teaching besides knowing that I am making a difference in my students lives is having the SUMMER OFF!

I am a big Baltimore Oriole's fan! J and I love going to O's's one of our favorite things to do in the spring and summer. He goes for the baseball...I go for the HOT guys :)

Do we have anything in common?

High 5 for Friday!!

Oh are my favorite day! Even when it's the summer and I haven't worked all week, I still love you. Let's look back on my favs this week...

Now that Jinxie is groomed he gets cold easy, which means he likes to cuddle! This rarely happens to me, as he loves his Daddy way more, but you bet I savored every single minute of this! I love this little lion so much!

We had a girls night at a local winery! Every Thursday they have "Good Life Thursdays". It's basically a free event with live music, wine, food and good friends! I really wanted to go for a long time, but something always came up. So glad it worked out this week...I had a blast! Even though I had wisdom teeth surgery next Friday, I'm still gonna go to Good Life Thursdays! LOL

We have curtains in our bedroom! We finally decided on some, and I love them! I will admit, I didn't like the color at first, but they go really well with our wall color. They are from Ikea, one of my favs place! Anyway, they were too long, so I hemmed them. So proud that I actually threaded the machine all by myself!

Since summer is almost over and I go back to school in a little over 1 week, I am trying to savor every bit of relaxation! That usually involves sunshine! I've been trying to lay out a little bit each know to keep my awesome tan going! Until winter comes...


These 2 are sooo cute! Jinxie loves his Daddy and needed some cuddles before he left for work!

Bring sexy back....

I totally have that JT song stuck in my head...and I'm sure you will to. I apologize :)

Anyway, Jinx got a haircut and is bringing sexy back! Every year we try to get Mr. Jinx groomed. Since he is long haired his fur mats easily and it's not comfortable for him. We wouldn't have to groom him if he likes to be brushed, but he doesn't. He will growl and bite, so it's just easier to have him shaved.

Myrtle Beach 2014

Every year J's family goes on a family vacation to Myrtle Beach and this year did not disappoint! For the past 2 years we have been staying in North Myrtle Beach...called Cherry Grove and it is heaven! It is really quiet where we stay, but still only 30 minutes from all the fun Myrtle Beach has to offer.

We pretty much spend the week enjoying the beach for hours, having a great dinner and then spending family time at night! I got an awesome tan this year and didn't burn! I think it was all that reapplying I did :)

I'm so sad that our vacation is over. I miss the beach and so no ready to go back to work in a couple weeks!
