Welcome to Freckled Strawberry!

My name is Amanda and I’m going to start off by telling you a little about myself! I am a stay at home mom of a beautiful 10 month old baby girl. I am married to the love of my life and we just celebrated our 10 year anniversary this August!
Deciding to stay at home with my baby girl was a pretty easy decision and now that life is starting to settle into more of a routine I decided to start writing this blog in my free time! This blog is not going to be about me being a stay at home mom, it’s going to be about some of the things in my life that I enjoy doing like,

– Shopping (especially for bargains woot!)
– Planning (anything and everything!!)
– DIY and crafting

I know it seems like a lot to write about but I will take things as they come and hopefully you will enjoy following me on my blogging journey! While we are on the topic I would like to take a few minutes to just fill you in a bit on this blogging experience so far. It’s a lot harder than it looks! Being a bit of a compulsive planner It was way to easy for me to get caught up in the “planning” aspect of the blog. I bought a domain name, signed up for web hosting and became all confused and flustered when I didn’t really technically understand what was going on with either of those things! After venting and whining to my husband he kindly brought me back to reality and told me to just start writing! Like Duh! So that is what I am doing. Before I complete the look of my blog, before I add any fancy widgets or anything I am going to post at least one post! So here it is! I hope you will follow my posts and this blogging journey with me!

Now…to get back to perfecting and planning the look of this blog 🙂
