30 Day Photography Challenge

I am currently participating in a 30 day photography challenge. It's just something I've decided to do for fun on my personal facebook page, but I figured I would post it on here to give my followers an option to join in on the fun. I will post my pictures (starting with the first 2 days on this post) for each day. You can leave a link to your photos in the comments section. I would love to see what types of ideas everyone has. So, without further ado, here is the list....

(I realize that this is a little hard to read, so here is the link to the blog I got the challenge list from: Original Photography Challenge )

Day 1: Self-Portrait

I HATE taking pictures of myself, but sometimes they are a necessity. This was one of those moments. Blah!

Day 2: What you wore today...

This is a picture of my wedding rings with some of the clothing I wore today. I wear my rings at all times, even in the tub and while doing you?

Day 3 will be posted tomorrow, that is if there are even any clouds to take pictures of. It's been really dreary weather here lately. We'll see :D

See you all tomorrow....

Win an Ipad or Kindle Fire :D

Enter here to win an Ipad 2. The person who refers the winner gets a new Kindle fire.

Don't forget to put Amanda Slusher with Crazy and Loving it as the person who referred you!!!!

Hi, Hello, Aloha....whichever way you say it!!! And Welcome :D

This is my first ever attempt at a blog. I'm by no means a writer, and in my opinion, not very interesting. I decided to start a blog to have something to do with what little bit of free time I do have. I think maybe I should introduce myself. My name is Amanda, and I'm from a VERY small town in WV. (Yes, I do have shoes and wear them I met my husband over 4 years ago and married him 3 years ago. I found out I was pregnant with my daughter around 3 months later. I had her in August of 2009. She is a wonderful 2yrs and 4 months old. What a time I have! I also have an 8 year-old stepson. We don't get to see him much, but that's another story entirely. I graduated from college in 2010 with an Associates Degree in Business Administration. I am not currently working (besides being a full-time mother which we all know is harder than any other job). My husband is currently a part-time laborer at a local sanitation department. I am very frugal and try my best to find great deals on ANYTHING I need to buy. My site will consist of deals, steals, and freebies. I will also include reviews on products, fun crafts I've found (because I love to craft {mostly crocheting}), and any other thing I find interesting. Some of you may enjoy things I post, some of you may not. I am open to anyone's opinion. I will do my best to give you all honest answers to any questions, and I hope to forge lasting friendships out of my time spent on here. My blog may get off to a slow start, but I am hoping to expand it. I am also open to any suggestions you may have. If you find a craft, book, joke, etc. (anything really) that you find interesting and would like to see it posted on my blog, send me an email or leave it in a comment. I do hope to, one day, also post giveaways. Thank you all for dropping by, and I hope to see you back. Later :D
