Meet The Contributor: Amanda

Hi Flagstaff! I am Amanda- a Midwest girl at heart but now adapting to the southwest.  I am excited to join the Flagstaff Mom Blog team and for you to get to know me better through my blogs.  But first I’ll give you more of an insight into my life by answering a few questions below!

  • Family: I come from a smaller family with only one sibling but lots of extended family. I married my high school sweetheart in 2011 and we have two crazy kids.
  • Job: I am the owner of Flip Marketing– a marketing and graphic design company assisting smaller businesses to achieve their marketing goals! I “flip” your company in the right direction.  I am also a sales consultant for Tastefully Simple.  I have a passion for cooking and this is my ultimate fix for it!
  • What brought you to Flagstaff: We arrived in Flagstaff in August of 2016 for my husband’s job.
  • Early Bird or Night Owl: I would think I’m a night owl but to be honest I’m both- my kids don’t like to sleep!
  • Hobbies: I enjoy cooking, sometimes baking, a good craft day, and helping my friends/family plan parties and events
  • Favorite thing to do with your Family: Playing outside and going for walks
  • Kids Age Difference: 11 months and 11 days
  • Coffee or Tea: Coffee on coffee on coffee with a side of coffee
  • Favorite/Least Favorite Household chore: Least cleaning, favorite when the cleaning is done
  • Something you are looking forward to: I look forward to see the personalities my kids develop and what activities really spark their interest.
  • Favorite Thing to do in Flagstaff with/without kids: Enjoying a meal without screaming and food flying everywhere- a dinner where my husband and I can have adult conversation.  I also enjoy the one-on-one time I get with each child.
  • Best Mom Hack: Bringing lots of snacks and drinks where we go to avoid a meltdown and trying not to get stressed.
  • The greatest challenge you’ve faced: Juggling two kids on my own during the day when I’m trying to run a successful business and being several miles away from family.
  • Something you love about yourself: I guess I’m always prepared and organized when it comes to family events
  • Favorite thing about being a Mom: Cuddling with my babies and watching them evolve into their own person. Teaching them new things that stick with them.
