I Probably Would Have Put This on Myspace Back In The Day

November 23, 2014

Hey friends.

I haven’t written in a long time. While my first inclination was to apologize, the truth is, I’m not going to apologize: I’ve had nothing good to write about and did not even feel like looking at my blog last week. I needed some space.

It was good.

Now I’m back and motivated to write…I have a NEW SITE DESIGN! YIPPEE!! I love it so much!!!!


While I’m excited to write today, I’ve got nothing educational and deep to say, so instead, here’s a fun little quiz…

Four names that people call me other than my real name:

1. AAA (or “Triple A”)

2. AJ (my name is Amy Jane)

3. Ames

4. Zermes

Four jobs I’ve had:

1. HR Manager at a plastic surgery facility

2. Waitress

3. lululemon athletica educator

4. Administrator at a CPA firm

Four movies I’ve watched more than once:

2. Mr. Holland’s Opus

3. The Notebook

Four things I don’t eat:

1. This one’s a drink: Red Bull or any other energy drinks <—Gag. I can’t even stand the smell!

Four of my favorite foods:

4.  “Hey Winnie” (<—Oh?! You don’t have a nickname for your guinea pig?? “Winnie” rhymes with “guinea” so Mark and I regulars call Otis, Winnie”

day in the life

And…just for kicks…

I get almost all of my Christmas shopping (and some personal shopping for things I may or may not need) done online on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Here are a few of the items I’m keeping my eyes on (and crossing my fingers for some good deals)

me: Every Last Crumb (Paleo baking cookbook), Jo Malone everything, these Nikes (I’m nervous about high tops but love the look… so this is a happy medium)

girly stocking stuffers: these monogram mugs (I LOVE the one that I have!), these notebooks, and classic, big, blingy stud earrings

guy stocking stuffers: iPhone amplifier, men’s dry relief, this meat cookbook, customizable zombie safe-zone maps 


That’s all, folks!
