About Me

I’m Amanda, and I was born and raised in Indiana but am now a Fargoan embracing life as a newlywed! I was married in Fargo, N.D., in June 2013. I love cats, cupcakes, reality TV, grammar, the color teal, so-bad-they’re-good movies (a la Sharknado), Alice in Wonderland, Danny Trejo, Target, ranch dressing, cheese, making lists and being married. Aww.

My husband is pretty much the coolest person I know. He’s incredibly funny and caring (oops, sorry, I spilled the beans!), and plays in a metal band. In fact, hard rock music was one the things that brought us together! Long story short, we met in college and were set up by mutual friends. Eight years later, we sealed the deal:) Read about our wedding here.

Notes from a Newlywed is where I share my views, thoughts, emotions and observations as a new wife. From wedding planning tips to changing my name, having in-laws and trying to be a better wife, and even a few recipes and randoms thrown in there, it’s all about what I’m learning along the way.

To read more about why I started this blog in the first place, read my first post here. Since then, some of my most popular posts have been:

    • I live my life by lists. Every Friday I make a list of things I need to do over the weekend, even stuff like do my nails, dishes, etc. I just love the feeling of accomplishment crossing things off! I’ve even been known to make a list of lists I need to make.
