Hi! I’m Amanda and loo le la is my journey through life. This includes preparing to be a mom, trying new recipes, doing what makes me happy, and simply loving myself — plus a whole lot more.

how loo le la came to be

It started the night before my 30th birthday. As you can imagine, I was feeling all the feels and it registered that it was probably time to start doing a lot more. I wrote this blog post that night. That’s all my blog consisted of for 17 months before I decided to really make something of that blog I started… in my 20s! Whoa!

I guess I didn’t know what I wanted to write about. I mean, it just started with an emotional rant about leaving my 20s behind. It took a solid year of being a 30-something to regroup apparently, but now I’m ready to begin. Again.

This sounds lame, but this was my realization — I was skipping face washes before bed. I went on a workout hiatus. I ate anything and everything I wanted. Plain and simple, I wasn’t being me or who I aspire to be.

So, this is my way of being held accountable.

You’ll probably find some off the wall thoughts scattered throughout this blog, along with some not-so-healthy, but very yummy comfort food recipes that happen to make me happy. Speaking of happy, my furbabies are the light of my life and I can’t imagine not including them and all their cuteness here. I’ll probably need to vent about my fad workout and trendy new purchase, too. Who knows?

how loo le la has transitioned (2017)

loo le la has since become a place to divulge my pregnancy journey, which I’ve really enjoying sharing. I’m sure as I transition from pregnant Amanda to mom, this platform will serve as the perfect space to vent and share stories of that chapter as well. I know I’ve found comfort and laughter in reading other mommy blogs, so I’m excited to become one myself!

If you’re looking for easy reads, inspiring thoughts, good food and other {mostly} chick things, sit back and scroll.

THE MOST IMPORTANT PART of loo le la is having you to chat with, so please feel free to comment, email me, share your ideas and be a part of loo le la.

I hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by!

BTW – I have no idea what loo le la means. I call my dog loo. Sometimes loo le. I guess it just stuck?
