“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”

I am a mom to not one, not two but THREE little boys. THREE ornery little boys.

My boys don’t watch Nickelodeon. They watch “Dukes of Hazzard”.

I have a love addiction for Irrigation Systems. I love the sound of them and I think they are strangely beautiful.

I love the country. I would be completely lost living in a city.

Many nights you can find my family and I having a dance party in our living room to Sean Kingston, Maroon 5 or JB.

I love going to prom every year! My hubby and I have gone together 5 times. (He’s the principal so it is cool.):)

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 boys.

I love the sun. I am one of those people who goes through a depression stage in the winter. I NEED SUNSHINE!

My favorite thing to photograph is birth. Hands down. It is life at it’s best.

If I was to do anything else as a profession it would be to study and become a doula.

I usually have gray nailpolish on my toes and occasionally on my fingers too.:)

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 love to clean my house when no one is around and it is silent.

I love to have fun!

I want to pierce my nose but keep chickening out. Wait scratch that! I did it!:)

I have signed my name- a.tonagel for the last 10+ years.

My name is Amanda.:)

Wanna know what I’m packin’? Only the best yo!:)
