Hello there! My name is Amanda, and I live in an 816 square foot brick bungalow built in 1926. This blog mostly tries to focus on fixing it up, but sometimes other random anecdotes from my life force their way in, too. Even though I’m the “Hip House Girl”, I’m really not that hip. I do not pretend to know what I’m doing when it comes to decorating or designing- I just choose things that I like and hope they work, and yes, I may follow trends that are “over” or “tired”. Sorry! When I found my house, it was a total disaster and I couldn’t even move in right away because, well, it wasn’t livable. To see the house’s progress so far, check out the Tour or just browse around. (I’m particularly proud of the bathroom and kitchen.) 🙂
Some more stuff about me: I’m in my mid-20s, I graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in International Studies and minors in Business and Spanish, and live in beautiful Salt Lake City, UT, which I love. I work for USTAR (Utah Science, Technology and Research) on the MarCom team. I like the outdoors (camping, hiking, skiing, marshmallow roasting and eating), playing and listening to music, and pretending to be crafty. Of course, my house is also a major hobby.
Update: I recently got engaged to Stan the Man, who’s pretty good around the house and pretty good at being awesome. We’re getting married in June,
probably in the back yard, at a local plant store that we love. I’ll try to keep the wedding talk to a minimum, but if you’re interested, most of those types of posts will be on Wednesdays.
