Hi there! I’m Amanda, a born and raised North Alabama (Roll Tide!), girl in her thirties.
I lost my grandfather to cancer in Oct 2013 and decided I needed to use the nickname he gave me as a baby (Dumplin’) while trying to decide on a blog name. This isn’t my first blog but my past blog attempts were subject based. A make-up blog, for example. This time I’m combining some of the things I love. Makeup, Photos, Baking, Cooking, and Rambling randomness.
Some things about me:
-I’m a 9-5 office staffer, working in a catering business.
-I don’t like sweet tea *gasp*
-I’m short. 5 foot, 4 inches.
-I have naturally curly hair.
-I don’t eat red meat, or seafood, orrr anything pork EXCEPT bacon.
-I love veggies and fruits.
-I refuse to eat at buffet restaurants.
-I really love cheese and ice cream.
-I adore all things Hello Kitty.
-I didn’t get my drivers license until just a month after my 26th birthday.
-I own more makeup than one person needs. Ever. There are some things I’ve never used. I love eye shadows and eye liners in bright colors. More recently I’ve gotten into lipstick.
-My favorite color is pink. Any shade.
-I enjoy traveling. There are so many places I want to see and photograph.
-My main camera is a Canon Rebel T3i and I love it. A lot.
-I love nail polish.
-I’ve always wanted to be a “cat lady”.
-I love to write.
-I’m shy, especially when I’m placed in a group of people I don’t know well. Crowds make me nervous. I don’t really ‘do’ clubs for this reason. Once I get to know people though, you can’t shut me up.
-I love antique and vintage things. One of my ‘dreams’ is to buy an old house that needs renovation. I want the worlds biggest kitchen in said house.
-I am pretty eclectic in my reading material and music selections. I’ll read and listen to almost anything.
-If it sparkles, I love it. No questions asked.
-NSYNC. Always and forever and ever, amen.
