         10 Random Things: Amanda Hessler
         I love the beach, but am more than terrified of deep water.

         I dream of owning my own stationery business!

         My sister is my absolute best friend, and has been my whole life!  We have literally never had a fight, and call each other multiple times throughout the day even though we live in the same city.

         I’m a chocoholic and eat some form of dessert after dinner EVERY night.

        I have borderline OCD and organization makes my heart happy.

        There is nothing better to me than getting into a bed full of clean linens.

        Dawson’s Creek is still my favorite show, and my sister and I share the entire series on DVD that I watch more often than I should admit.  (I have a serious passion for television).

        I inherited a need for routine from my dad and am a major creature of habit.  I never apply body wash before conditioner in the shower, or put on make-up before making my bed in the morning.

        My nephews mean the world to me, and I feel so cool and honored when someone mistakes me as their mom out in public!  I only wish I was a hip, young mom with two adorable, fashionable little guys like my amazing sister!

        I love a good to-do list, and feel a sense of accomplishment anytime I get to cross an item off.  Sometimes I add an item I may have already completed, just so I can cross it off!

How much do I love Amanda? Let me count the ways...

         Despite our college rivalries (she's a Jayhawk, I'm a Tiger),  I'm convinced we could be long-lost sisters. We share mutual feelings about the beach and fine paper goods; adore our sisters; we've got a serious sweet tooth; love fresh linens, organization, and tackling our to-do lists; we're creatures of habit (what of it?); and I can't wait to be an aunt one day! Oh, and the part about Dawson's Creek? I think I'm forever endeared to Amanda. In my 7th grade English class, I wrote my parents an argumentative paper as to why I should be allowed to watch Dawson, Pacey, and Joey each week. For the record, I got an A on the paper and was allowed to tune in, but only with supervision. Thanks for sharing, Amanda! You've given me a reason to Netflix old episodes and escape to Capeside this next weekend.

  1. Ashley, I could not love this post more (and great graphics)! I feel so honored to be on my favorite blog :) Hope you have a fabulous Tuesday, you know I will be on cloud nine all day with this post! PS - I agree, I think we could be long-lost sisters. I've felt that way since I first stumbled on your blog...

  2. Well, if you're sisters, then I'm the first cousin, for sure. You just named off about 13 of my favorite things. (In 10, no less. What a feat.) Capeside forever!

    Remember when the cast did a J.Crew catalog? I thought I'd died and gone to pop culture heaven.

  3. Can we talk about how amazing Dawson's is? I still watch it too and my hubby makes fun of me. But seriously, so good!
