Hi! Literally, no one asked for this, but I decided to do it anyway. Here is a compilation of random About Me Q & A’s with some photos and memes for an added touch. I actually took a lot of time doing this and to be honest, it was pretty fun. So I hope you enjoy getting to know me and have a laugh or two at my expense!
Are you named after anyone?
No, however, my mom does maintain that the name “Amanda” was not popular in 1988, yet I went to school with about 20 other girls named “Amanda.” I just did a quick Google search, and the name “Amanda” is the third most popular baby girl name in 1988. Slick, Ma.

No, and we don’t plan to at this point. My husband and I both agree that we are more than happy with the way our lives are and decided we would rather be selfish, stay child free, and just spoil our niece rotten for the rest of our lives.
