So I have never once written in this thing. I made this account years ago to join various communities and never got in the swing of actually writing. Hoping to change that!

A little about me. My name is Amie (it rhymes with Sammy) and I'm 20 years old. I've been married to a wonderful man named Brook since April 17, 2010. Our daughter, Sarah Jane was born October 26, 2010. For those of you doing the math, I’ll spare you the trouble- I was pregnant when we got married! Haha I’m a twin, and my sister, Britton, and I have a very very intense relationship. Rocky would be a good word to describe it. Since my daughter has been born we’ve become closer again, but I worry constantly about her.

Anyway, being a mother is the most wonderful thing I've ever experienced, but it's also very difficult. Brook and I struggle financially sometimes, and I deal with a lot of guilt about the possibility of Sarah Jane not having everything when she’s older. My husband is in nursing school right now, and by the time she’s old enough to know about money we should be set, but right now it’s tough. I work at Pier 1 Imports and Outback Steakhouse and Brook is a CNA at the medical university.

I try to follow Attachment Parenting suggestions and most of my posts will probably involve my daughter. Oh and pictures. I take lots of pictures. Looking for friends!

Pictures! Because everyone loves those.Collapse )

Really really really fucking annoyed about work right now. I have to close tonight (there til 10) and then go in at 7:30 in the morning for our stupid team meeting. Fine, whatever, everyone has to go to the meeting and SOMEONE has to close the store, and it's just my turn or whatever. fine.

but then to schedule me to come back tomorrow night after I've spent three hours there in the morning and schedule me to stay until two hours AFTER closing? that right there is so uncool. UGH

Please vote for us!

Hey guys! I promise to do a real update soon! But between now and then will you guys please do me a favor?

On facebook "like" this page and then go and "like" this picture of Brook and SJ? And get your friends to do it too! The contest ends on the 22nd and whichever picture has the most likes wins!

The prize is a really nice sling and if I win I want to give it to Lesley for the little peanut on the way! I would REALLY appreciate it, guys.

Friends Cut

I've done a Friends Cut. My list was getting a little out of hand and I found myself just skimming a couple entries. If you were cut, please don't take it personally! It doesn't mean you aren't lovely, just that we weren't necessarily connecting. I like to really get to know the people on my list, and I just wasn't feeling that with some of you. I'm looking to build relationships, not have a high number of "friends." I wish everyone who is reading this, on my list or not, nothing but the best!
