Today, I would like you to meet Amanda Smith, a 25-year-old woman who met her husband in culinary school. Seriously. Culinary school! (Understandably, they are both welcome to come cook for me anytime they want.) (Just saying.)
Amanda and her husband live together in Texas with their son, Jackson Wade, who is five months old. She is currently a stay-at-home mom with an Etsy shop filled to the gills with adorable stuff, but she and her culinary-school hubby are starting an at-home cake shop as well. (Understandably, they are also welcome to come bake for me anytime they want.) You can find her blog by clicking here.
1. What is your favorite dessert?
I love LOVE cookies, especially chocolate chip cookies. But I don’t like a whole lot of chips. Weird, I know.
2. Hands-down, what was the best day of your life?
It would have to be days… When I was in labor with my son. It was horrific and hard and it hurt like a mother F…but it was the best day(s) ever.
3. Tell me something about yourself that you are frighteningly proud of.
Hm… I’m good at everything so I don’t know where to narrow it down.. Ha. I guess I’m good at baking. I love it. It hard to find time for it, but when I do it’s usually good. :]
4. Give a random, crazy moment that you happen to remember.
When I was a kid (before braces) my older brothers called me Slimer from Ghostbusters. At the same time, my mom decided it was a great idea to cut my hair REALLY short and then perm it. Yah. So not only was I Slimer, I was also Poodle. Yah. Thanks Mom. Love ya, mean it!
5. Okay, tell us one story that your family will tease you about until the day that you die.
Psh. What do they not make fun of me about!? Let’s see… Ok. So my family used to live next to two schools when we were growing up and when I was in high school and in college. I went off to college when I was 18 and while I was down for a visit a new neighbor moved in and my mom and I went to introduce ourselves. I was almost 20 at the time. After names we exchanged and a few pleasantries, the man asked me which of the two schools I went to. One is a middle school… the other is an elementary school. I was TWENTY. TWENTY! Ugh. This usually happens to me, but not at bad as that! Geez! My family usually makes fun of me for looking young… I always have to buy the beer when we are having a get together just so they can card me and almost not let me purchase the beer. My brothers especially get a good chuckle out of that.
Now it’s worse. I have a 5 month old and people look at me like I’m just stupid kid that got knocked up. I’m 25 people! And married!
