Hi there! I'm Amy and I am SO excited to be doing a guest post for the lovely Lauren! I have followed Lauren's blog for a LONG time now... and we actually know each other in real life! My boyfriend and her had a college class together a long time ago, and when she was looking for a wedding cake he told her about my business... so I ended up having the pleasure of making her cake! It's one of my favorite cakes that I have done to this day!
Anyway... here are Lauren's questions and my answers, enjoy :)

-Tell me about yourself and your fabulous blog!

I just started blogging over at love AmyCakes, and so far I love it! I don't feel too new to the blogging world because I have always read blogs, but it's definitely different being the one writing what people read! Over at my blog I share a little bit about my life, my business, and everything else, with anyone who cares enough to read!

Once again, I'm Amy (incase you forgot, or didn't catch it)! I'm a 20 year old with the best family, boyfriend, friends, and job! It's safe to say that I love life and everything about it! I love anything girly & anything containing the color pink! I am a baker at heart and spend too much time making tasty cakes come to life with creativity. Lucky for me, I love it and I have my own business where I get to make cakes every single day... it's called AmyCakes & Cookies. I wouldn't say I'm a total fashionista, but I sure do love clothes, shoes, handbags, make up, nail polish, and every type of accessory you can think of! Working out has became a new love of mine... you can find me in the gym most week days! Oh, and I can't forget to tell you about my one true love, Mountain Dew... yep, I'm completely, & SADLY addicted... maybe one day I will get tired of it, or maybe not.
I can't wait to see where blogging takes me and I would love it if you came on over and checked it out for yourself. If you do, make sure to let me know so I can check out yours too :)

-Tell me something good you have going on in your life at the moment.


Well, at the moment... EVERYTHING is going great! Love it when that happens... but for the sake of this post, I'll share one thing. My business AmyCakes & Cookies, is doing so great right now (check out my blog, or business website for more info on what exactly it is). I am booking up with orders so quickly and I already have 4 weddings booked in June!! I am so excited and so thankful to be doing something that I LOVE!

-Tell me one materialistic thing you can't live without.


Make up: Yes this may sound crazy but I don't care, must be the girly, girl in me! I can easily leave the house without my phone, my purse, etc... but NOT make up. Sorry, but I'm not one of those girls that feels it is okay to go out of the house looking like you just slept walked right out of the door! No make up faces and sweat pants should be left at home! I'm sure that some of you are probably hating me for this right now haha... sorry!!

-Tell me your favorite holiday.


My favorite holiday would have to be Christmas! Something about Christmas time is just magical, it reminds me of being a kid again. I love the family time, traditions, all the movies, lights, baking, shopping, and everything else. I think I like it the most because it gets the most hype out of any holiday... and I LOVE holidays. A great excuse to do extra fun things, right? :)

Check out my awesome "ugly" sweater I made back in 2010 for our family Christmas party... yes, it includes blinking battery pack lights and all. I even kept it to use in the future, haha!

-Tell me your favorite vacation spot.

This is a hard one because I love sooo many places, Cancun, San Diego, LA, Florida, Nashville... and the list goes on! Although for this, I suppose I will pick one that is close to my heart!

Anna Maria Island, Florida. My family owns condos on the island and we visit when we can throughout the year. It is seriously the cutest little beach island with the BEST shops & food! There are almost no chain stores, and definitely no chain restaurants on the island... so you really escape from reality and get the feel of a small beach-side town. I love it because when we visit we don't do anything... we just hang out at the beach/pool, get our tans on, shop, and eat out... it's perfect!

-Tell me one thing you want to cross off your bucket list.


Swim with dolphins at Atlantis in the Bahamas! Yep something simple like that would make me SO happy. Dolphins have been my favorite animal since I can remember and I think it would be such a great experience! Why at Atlantis... well because I want to go there too, might as well knock out two birds with one stone ;)


-Tell me a short version of your love story.


I met my boyfriend Zac back in 2006 when he switched to my high school and we had the same biology class freshman year. In the spring of 2007 I made plans to hang out with a guy friend from another school and much to my surprise Zac showed up with him... we seriously clicked right away and before long we became "official" on May 5th, 2007. We were so little then but we were inseparable! In August 2010 I moved away to college with two friends. After only being there a few short weeks, Zac and I broke up. It was the worst thing I have ever went through. I partied, he partied, and we did everything we never did when we were together. I tried my hardest to just forget about Zac but as much as we both tried to move on, we couldn't... there were the occasional texts, calls, visits, happy moments, and more fights. Finally in December we started seeing each other more often and talked about our past and figured out our problems... and finally got back together after being apart 4 months. And here we are today... going strong and doing 100x better than ever. All in all, breaking up was the best thing that ever happened to us, it made us stronger and made us both realize that we need each other! We have the best relationship... he is the sweetest, most caring guy ever, and we balance each other out perfectly. He's my best friend :) So there you have it, it's not the best love story, or the most Cinderella like story, but it's my love story :)



-Tell me a fun quote.

I believe that this is such a good thing to follow! If you do everything in love, nothing bad should come out of it!


-Tell me what you notice first about a person.


How they carry themselves! If they are nice, outgoing, shy, rude, reserved, etc!
-Tell me something about you that will make me laugh.

Well let me first start off by saying that I love me some wine :) yum yum! Well one night in-particular, Zac and I decided to watch some movies and have a few drinks... well a few glasses of wine later and I was feeling pretty good, then I stood up... and felt really really good. Mind you that when I drink wine, I get very, very, very, chatty AND funny... well with all this talking and funniness going on, I decided to start speaking in my own language. I called in Aim-ineese (spelling? haha). I was just trying to be funny and make Zac laugh... which I did! I then thought it would be a good idea to go tell my brother about my new language... annnd he recorded it. Now, if I still had the video... I might upload it for you all to get the full effect, but I don't (thank goodness!). Hope that gave you a good laugh ;)

Hope you all enjoyed!! Thanks for reading and letting me share a little of my life with YOU!

Also, thanks again Lauren... you're a doll :)
