30 Things...

This post is inspired by the lovey Danielle from Sometimes Sweet. Read her 30 things here!

1. I am from very south Texas. If you head south in Texas and hit Mexico, back up 10 minutes and you're there. 

2. I hate roaches. Really really hate. 

3. I've always wanted to be a nurse.

4. I eat a cupcake a day at work.

5. My husband and I met in culinary school. 

6. The first time I ever spoke to Jeremy was after he tried to puree a boiling hot soup in a teeny tiny blender and turned it on right as I was walking by. Yup. Boiling hot soup ALL over me. "Hi, I'm Amanda."

7. We had a culinary themed wedding complete with utensil "flower" arrangements.

8. Jack is named after Jeremy.
Jackson Wade Smith.
Jeremy Wade Smith.

9. If we ever have a girl (we WILL have a girl) she'll be named after me.
Amanda Michelle Smith.
Avery/Addison Michelle Smith.

10. I want more

11. We are waiting to have more kids (pout) until Jack is 3 or 4. 

12. My family makes fun of people they love... they must love me A LOT. (I love it.)

13. I am the shortest person on my dad's side of the family including all of my cousins. I am the 3rd oldest out of 14. 

14. I would love working at a restaurant but I hate working nights.

15. I was offered a sous chef position at a fancy restaurant in Dallas, but I was pregnant and moving away. (SAD)

16. I was offered the position again when we moved back, but we live in Ft. Worth. The drive would have been almost an hour one way. 

17. I can sing, but I don't. Ever. Well, only in my car. 

18. My husband and I have a dream to one day open a bar that serves amazing food and serves only local/artisan beer.

19. I played basketball in high school for 3 years. I had to quit because I have knee problems. 

20. I've had surgery on my knee once, but need it again. My knee still bugs me most days.

21. I was brutally attacked by my cat as a kid. I had to rush to the hospital and the cat had to be put to sleep. Still have most of the scars. I hate cats. Actually I'm quite terrified of cats. 

22. I can still wear clothes from the children's section at Target and most stores.

23. I have to order ALL of my jeans online. Most stores don't carry the short versions of their jeans. Thanks, Gap.

24. My husband had made me love Family Guy... I used to hate it.

25. I have a huge tattoo planned for my back, but I'm pretty sure my husband will hate it. Ah well. 

26. When I was a kid, I had a parasite in my stomach for eating lettuce that wasn't washed (I knew it wasn't washed, but ate it anyway). I STILL have lots of trouble with my stomach. I have to watch what I eat all the time and can't have too much of anything. Example: I can only have milk once a week or less.

27. I am currently growing my hair out.

28. In high school, a lot of girls disliked me. I was friends with all the guys.. especially because my dad was the head football coach. I never dated one of them. I always dated guys from other schools.

29. I am the best at loosing touch with friends. I hate that I do that, but it always happens. Just recently, I've started to regain touch with some of my favorite friends.

30. I can't wait to throw dinner parties. SOON.

I love the story of how you and your husband met! Although I hope there were no burns involved. When my fiance and I first met we slipped in the mud together--maybe messy situations help break the ice?

I recently found your blog through Sometimes Sweet, and I'm enjoying your updates!

Your 30 things are so great! I love how you've named you son & potential daughter. I think it's neat to know the stories behind names.

I accidentally posted my 30 things yesterday instead of Wednesday....whoops!!

Love your 30 things! i like to get to know others better. I love the fact that you and your hubs had a culinary themed wedding! That is awesome!

Why would your hubs hate your tattoo??

Amanda said...

Thank you everyone!! :]

I'm thinking of making a wedding post soon. I loved it and I planned it all.

I don't think he'll hate it so much, but he isn't a tattoo guy. He knew when we got married that I wanted more. He's just not as into them as I am. He'll live. :]
