a little bit about me…

  • I am NOT a writer.
  • I used to teach Middle School Language Arts. Ironic?
  • I am married to my high school sweetheart. He is the best thing in my life. He is also my “Cabana Boy” but don't tell him I said that. 🙂
  • I am a mom to not one, not two but THREE little boys. THREE ornery little boys. AND... the best little girl in the entire world!
  • I love the country.
  • I am so grateful to be living in La Porte, Indiana!!!! It is home to me! I will always be a Slicer!
  • I love going to prom every year! My hubby and I have gone together 7 times! The perk of being married to a high school principal!
  • My favorite type of food is Mexican- including a Strawberry Margarita with Salt. Yes Please!
  • I love my God. I see His beauty all around. I felt closest to Him while having my babies!
  • I love the sun. I am one of those people who goes through a depression stage in the winter. I NEED SUNSHINE!
  • I love antiques. Preferably 20's-40's decor.
  • My "Happy Place" is the pool at my parent's house where I grew up. I have instructed Cabana Boy to spread my ashes there in the flower beds when I die. He knows there is no point in trying to argue with me.
  • I can still sing and do the motions to my high school song. (Completely out of breath by the end but I could do it if I had to.) 🙂  Go Slicers!
  • I want to pierce my nose again. 🙂
  • We are now horse owners! We bought our first quarter horse last fall! I love being involved in 4-H and spending time in the saddle!
  • I have signed my name- a.tonagel for the last 16+ years even though my name is Amanda. 😉
