Owning It With Erika!


Happy Thanksgiving Break, y'all!  


Today's post is a little different.  I am sending you away!

My girl, Erika, asked me awhile back if I might want to be her next guest in her Owning It series.

And in the words of Napoleon Dynamite, I told her...


So that's what's going on over on Erika's blog today!  Hop on over here and check out my entire list of crazy and yes, I own it all.  ;)  But before you go...

Sidenote 1:  Since we're owning it, I'm going to confess that my husband and I are big Napoleon Dynamite fans and anytime one of us whips out a line from that movie, we both crack up pretty hard.


Same goes for Monty Python.  We think we're funny.  ;)


I don't really know why I like either of these movies so much.  I don't normally like ridiculous movies like Monty Python.  (Which can only be described as ridiculous.  And hysterical.  But mostly ridiculous.)

Anyway, if you are new here and joining me from Erika's blog, I'm sorry that this is your first impression of life over in my corner of the blogosphere.  ;)  Sometimes I just get to typing and it goes off course.

But let's swing this crazy train back around to where we started.


I'm sure you already know that Erika is a giant sweetheart and I am so thankful to call her my friend.  Over the past couple of years, I have been welcomed into the fold of this amazing group of women and all of these girls just make my heart happy. 



I adore Erika and her sweet family so much.  They are all genuinely GOOD people with huge hearts.  Bowen makes me laugh more than any child I've ever known and Tab is pretty funny too. Ebby Lee and Nixon are awesome kids--smart, spunky and sweet. Watching Nixon with Britt is adorable. And Britt has had me wrapped around her little finger since the minute I saw her.


Sidenote 2:  Another owning it?  I am obsessed with the idea of another baby.  But I don't really want another baby.  (Or do I??)  But there's so much unknown and I'm 36 now which is apparently geriatric status in maternity land.  I just want my boys to be babies again.  Is that really too much to ask for???


They will always be my babies.  :)  Although, carrying them up the stairs to their own beds after they fell asleep in our bed watching the game last night gave us a nice reminder that they are in fact, 7 and 9.  And heavy.  And tall.

To wrap it up, if you are here for the first time, WELCOME!  Please feel free to say hi!  I'd also love for you to join my Facebook group HERE, find me on Bloglovin' and you can also find me on Instagram @amandanall (personal) and @thatinspiredchick (Etsy).

And my Etsy shop is HERE. (whew.)

THANK YOU for stopping by if you're here from Erika's blog!  And if you stopped here first, then go check out my post at A Little Bit of Everything!

If you'd like to get to know me a little better, feel free to poke around my Friday Favorites because they are filled with stuff I love.  (Find them here.) 

I've got a skincare post planned for sometime this week but in case I don't get back here by Thursday, Happy Thanksgiving!!

    1. Right?! I totally agree. Your Frasier is my Friends...and your cooking is my crafting. And I couldn't remember if I showed you my hands or not! Now I remember! Haha! And I love your sweet family too. Don't even get me started on Madeley and her sweet cheeks or boss walk. #lovelovelove

  3. I am also a total audio book addict! Jojo Moyes' narrators have the BEST accents, and they get stuck in my head- haha glad to hear someone else loves a good accent! I enjoyed your crazy!

    1. Those accents can make or break an audiobook! If I get an American man narrator I usually hate the book. Boring. ;)

  7. I linked over to your blog from Erika's blog. What really intrigued me is that my fingers turn white as well when I get cold and I never knew what is was...thank you for the enlightenment of Raynaud's Syndrome-game changer. I never knew of anyone else that experience this happening. Thank you!!!
    I am now going to be one of your blog followers and your Esty shop look fabulous! (side note-I played softball through college so we have that in common as well)

  8. I had to come over from Erika's blog. Your crazy and mine are so very alike! My husband has Raynaud's, I hate cooking, I'm night owl, I loooooove Facebook comments(the crazier, the better) , I do not do Snapchat (nor do I get the point of it), and fall asleep to friends every single night. My husband hates that last one. I'll have to come back to read more!
