Behind the Blog - Amanda


I am so excited to start my new series 'Behind the Blog" with this mama. We have quite a few things in common, and you may even notice that she is one of the women I nominated for the liebster award.

"Behind the Blog" is a series where fellow bloggers guest post telling us a little about themselves and give insight to the person behind the blog. With so many blogs out there so many great ones get buried, so I decided to give people an opportunity to stand out. If you are interested in being a part of my "Behind the Blog" series please send me an email.

Hello everyone! I'm Amanda and I blog over at Oregonian Mom.
I got pregnant when I was 18, and by 19 I was a mom. Logan, was born on February 17th, 2013. He was 7lbs 2oz's of cuteness! Logan's daddy is my high school sweetheart, we've been together since we were 14. We got married when Logan was about 6 months old. We had a gorgeous backyard wedding thrown by my Aunt & Grandmother, on September 7th, 2013. Those are the two best days of my life, hands down. 

I'm currently a stay at home mom. I do have a job, but I work such little hours that I consider being a mom my main "job!" I work part-part time as a caregiver. My grandparents own an adult foster home, and the current plan is for me to take over and run it in a couple of years. It's not exactly my life's calling, but it will be a sure way to support my family for a long time. My hobbies include babywearing, cloth diapering, dressing my son in cute outfits, and spending way too much money on everything "baby." Some of my favorite activities are hiking, camping, going to the ocean, and just exploring nature in general. I find myself still calling my son a baby, even though he is technically a toddler now. He's 16 months old, and full of personality! He loves to be outside, read books, eat, play with our animals, and much more. We are still breastfeeding, but he finally sleeps in his own bed! He sleeps in a toddler bed, because he was always terrified of his crib. We bedshared for the first 12 months of his life, and he still sneaks in after daddy goes to work at 4am. I don't mind though, I can't get enough cuddles from that little guy.

Blogging is something I really enjoy doing. I've had lots of tumblrs (I don't have one at all anymore,) lots of blogspot pages, but none really ever lasted. I tried blogging through my pregnancy, and when Logan was first born, but I just couldn't stick with it. I am elated to have finally made a blog that I love, and want to keep using forever! Sometimes I have a hard time finding inspiration on what I want to blog about, but I'm going to work on doing more writing, instead of posting photo posts most of the time! I'm open to talking about any topics, and I love conversing with my readers. Feel free to come on over and leave any comments or questions, I will definitely get back to you! Also, feel free to ask me to check out your blog, I'm always looking for more blogs to follow along with!
