Morning Coffee Chat.

Hi friends!

Monday mornings can be such a drag, especially after a Holiday weekend.

Luckily my son is being very good eating breakfast in his high-chair and letting me drink a HOT cup of coffee!

To be honest, I was having such a hard time thinking of what to write about for today’s blog post. Usually I have mine done far in advance but writer’s blog hit. My inspiration journal was just not doing it’s job and I couldn’t come up with a single thing I wanted to talk about.

So I thought for today, maybe we would just chat and get to know me a little better!

For those of you that are new, my names Amanda. I usually write the Monday posts here on Quirky Workin’ Moms.

I am 26 almost 27 in August. I’ve been married almost 2 years to a total sports fanatic that I have been with for 8 years! We have an adorable almost 1-year-old (silently crying while I say that) son who we just can’t get enough of! We are a pretty active family but most of the time you can find us on the couch watching The Office or Cheers on Netflix.

I am an avid reader and writer, I actually even have another blog more specific to the books I read called hanging with amanda. Anything romance or mystery/thriller is right up my alley. Even historical fiction as well!

I enjoy wine and margarita’s and the sunshine on my face. Fall is one of my favorite seasons, you can’t beat the beautiful colors in Michigan during the Fall. I absolutely LOVE dogs. We are hoping to get a golden retriever next year and it has me so excited.

Sweet Home Alabama and Legally Blonde are two of my fav movies. Every time Sweet Home Alabama is on TV you can usually find me stuffing my face with popcorn and chocolate.

The simple things in life like family and friends just make me so happy and that’s usually how I spend my days when I’m not working!

I’m just really happy we are connecting with so many other moms out there and bloggers like us! It’s been so much fun and we are just getting started! Plus today’s post marks our 20th one and that is exciting!

It’s time to heat up my second cup of coffee and get this little man of mine down for a nap.

Do we have anything in common? I would love to hear more about you all and your favorite things!

Thanks for chatting with me! 🙂

    I think this is a nice way to help your readers learn more about you. It was an interesting read. We definitely have things in common. I live in Michigan, love wine, and watch The Office reruns a lot too.

    This was such an awesome post! It was cool to find out we have a lot in common actually. My fiance is also a huge sports fanatic, I love dogs, fall is also my favorite season (well pretty much October to February is my favorite time of year), I love Legally Blonde and Sweet Home Alabama but my movie that I will watch whenever it is on is Just Friends. Writing has been hard for my lately too. I don’t know what is was about these last few weeks, but I think I am finally back on track!

    Hi!
    I always find it great to read about the person behind the blog.
    I had exactly the same yesterday when I sat down to write my post, I just had a massive blank! We’re on week 16 of full on lockdown so maybe it’s taking its toll.
    I’ve just got back into finding a bit of time to myself and started reading again. I like sports autobiographies as again it’s an insight into the person themselves. Maybe I’m just a bit nosey 😁

      Yes it really is taking a toll, I agree! Autobiographies are fun! It’s always fun learning more about others 😊
