My name is Amanda and I am 27 years old. I am a single mother to Mari who is 8. I am not a native Floridian, originally from Ohio. We have only lived here a year and a half, but it's been a family talk to move here since I was 14.
Most of the swaps I sign up for are for my daughter Mari. She enjoys picking the items out and getting them as well. Mari is in karate and likes horses, legos, and animals.
We love to travel. Since it's just the 2 of us we never have to ask anyone else. We just decide and go. We have been on 6 Disney cruises in a 2 year span, which included a 10 night Mediterranian cruise. We also were on a Royal Caribbean ship once for a Christian music cruise. We did a 4 generation trip to Disney World in 2007. I had a spring break trip to Ireland in 2009, which I loved. I did a bed and breakfast tour. Flew into Shannon, Ireland, drove around for a week and ended up in Dublin to fly home. Mari opted not to come on that trip with me. The next trip I want to save up for is to Australia.
My favorite color is orange. I have a car that is orange and my whole bedroom is orange.
We listen to Christian music and my favorite band is Third Day. Love how the band hosts meet and greets at concerts and also tweets on twitter. It's nice to see that they are real people leading real lives and life hands them lemons as well.
I don't have time for reading and think I read enough when I was in college to last me a lifetime. Mari enjoys Katie Kazoo and horse books.
We like to do all sorts of crafts. Mari's craft of the moment is perler beads. She's also been getting craft books out of the library and the last one was a how to make pop-up's and airplanes.
We gave up cable at the beginning of the summer and only use Netflix streaming now. We like that its on demand and no commercials. I like to watch Law and Order: SVU.
