No Big Whoop

Last Wednesday, the most amazing post showed up in my Facebook feed from a friend I’d been praying for hard for two weeks.

“… And for those of you I haven’t talked to..I have a new liver! (no big whoop)”

In the blink of an eye, a healthy young woman full of spunk

Six Fun OOTD

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know how much I enjoy taking pictures of myself in the bathroom mirror.

I know what you’re thinking to yourself. “I thought Amanda was 32 years old, not 14 years old for crying out loud, why doesn’t she just throw up a sideways peace sign and do

Where I’ve Been and Where I’m Going

If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been MIA.

I’m sure you’ve missed my beautiful face in your comment sections, or my witty┬árepartee on Twitter. Or maybe you haven’t, and that’s OK too. To those of you who have commented on my absense, I’ve promised “I’ll be back soon, pinky swear! I’m just busy at work!”

My new digs

It’s been about three months since I moved to my new office. It’s been a pretty smooth transition after the initial shock I felt with this big change in my life. I can honestly say I’m all the way around on the wheel of change and adapting nicely to my new digs.

Whereas my

I’m going to be frank here — yesterday sucked. I’m facing some big changes in my life. Nobody is sick or dying or losing their jobs. I’m not pregnant or anything. It’s only a little change, but it will end a working relationship and begin another.

Even small changes can be felt enormously.

#Pinterest Challenge: Loaded Baked Potato Dip

Loaded Baked Potato Dip

Every so often at work, my boss plans a department cook-off. We are a group of people who love to eat, cook and win bragging rights. Cook-offs combine the best of all these things. Each has a theme — past themes have included “Around The World-off” (ethnic food) and “Appesertoff” (appetizers and desserts only).

Well, well, well. My friend, Friday, we meet again.

Welcome. And thank you for making another appearance in our lives before someone (read: me) punches someone (read: anyone getting in the way of my three day weekend) in the face.

Remember UDO? Yeah, today is the day I’m going to try and get a

Free Stuff Table

We have a table at work where people dump all the stuff they no longer want and hope someone else from the building will take it.

It’s the Free Stuff Table.

Somebody explain this collection to me:

This was taken this morning, after someone took the gigantic tube of mashed potato flakes.

Loaner Phone Part 1: Contact list

Last June I jumped feet first into the world of smart phones with my Samsung Moment. It was love at first touch. Over the next few months, my Samsung Moment failed me again and again while I became increasingly dependent on it. I feel like my Samsung Moment and I need to go to couples

Swaddle Me

I don’t really like change.

From a new job to moving furniture around in the living room, the idea of change makes me angsty, itchy and irritable. Yes, itchy.

My work friends knew this and helped to make the change from non-Mom to Mom a smooth one. During my pregnancy, a friend at work
