Go say hi: Blog | Shop | Facebook | Twitter | Pinterest

I’m Amber. I’m a 27 year old mom of three. I’m married to my best friend who also makes me want to punch him usually at least once a day. We’ve been married for 6 years, happily like 95% of the time. I kid, I kid, I love him more than anything. We have two cats and a bulldog and not that cute English bulldog – we have a 70lb and growing American Bulldog. I have a lifestyle blog, I’m not sure what else you’d call it. I blog about life, mommyhood, recipes, fashion, crafts, the works. So yea, that’s me in a nutshell. ๐Ÿ™‚

What’s your particular favorite in the upcoming holiday line-up: T-Day, Christmas, or New Year’s? Why?
Christmas! I just LOVE decorating! I love seeing the excitement on my bittles’ faces when they help decorate. I love the Christmas cheer that you get (or at least you’re supposed to get). I just love the idea of being merry and cheeful.

Any particular holiday traditions in your family?
Every year we do secret santa between the siblings and our significant others. There are 4 of us without the significant others, so throw them in and it’s a lot of fun to guess who had who and try to figure out what to get your sister’s boyfriend that you’ve never met.

Amber, her hubby, and the three bittles in question.

3 favorite recipes you’ve shared on your blog:
Holy Crockpot Deliciousness
Homemade Spaghetti Sauce
Breakfast Burritos How-To

What’s the most successful Pinterest-inspired project you’ve done?
This is probably my favorite one: That Time I Tried to Be Pinteresting.

What are your guilty pleasures?
Sneaking off to Starbucks before I pick the kids up from school or after I drop them off. Eating chocolate after the kids go to bed. Driving around aimlessly just to get out of the house.

Best movie you’ve seen recently?
Umm, What to Expect When You’re Expecting. I got it in the mail the other day via Netflix and seriously laughed SO hard throughout almost all of it!

I actually have that same movie from Netflix right now, looking forward to it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Go visit Amber, and don’t forget to enter the group giveaway for a chance to win ad space from her!
