Got a suggestion for a place called Ace of Fades here in Salem. I love it!!!


AFI @ The Roseland 08/04/17

So, I love only one band more than AFI..and as we all know that is Pearl Jam…so I fucking love AFI! They have meant so much to me over the years ever since I discovered them as a teen. Along with PJ they got me through some of the most difficult times. My husband and my daughter and I went. My husband did not enjoy it…Chyann and I didn’t enjoy the first two bands at all either, but AFI! They were on fire! Chyann didn’t know them going in, but she fell in love with them. I am so happy I could introduce her to a band that I love so much and she loved them too. It was a very special experience because it was her first concert. ❤ ❤ ❤ We were way up close to start. But after the first few songs by the second band, people were pushing and thrashing around and it was so fucking hot and I experienced claustrophobia for the first time ever. So we had to move to the back of the crowd. So I could get some air. But even though I had to move to the back, I still could not have had a better time…unless the first two bands had not performed, because in my opinion they were terrible. lol But here are my favorite pictures of the night.


This last pic is from the stall wall when I went pee…I found it picture worthy because that is my name…Amanda Michelle…lol

Here are the couple of videos I got…the opening of the show with Miss Murder…

And the beginning of Silver and Cold…


I love this band so much! AFI, Davey Havok, Hunter Burgan, Jade Puget and Adam Carson. Thank you for being there, for understanding and for giving the world everything you have to offer!

Been a little while…

So a bunch of crap going on with my daughter still.

Found out my Pearl Piggy, my ACD, is deaf. She is my little love! We are going to start working with hand signals to train her. We kinda thought she just didn’t inherit the Heeler intelligence because she is a mix. And I told some people that and that we thought that because after 2 years she didn’t know her name still. They suggested she might be deaf. That thought had never even crossed our minds, because she reacts to things. But we discovered after watching her, she reacts when she sees Autzen, our other dog react, or because she can feel a vibration, such as the vibration when one of our cars pulls up in the driveway. so the vet did some tests yesterday and said her ears flinched but there was no other reaction so he thinks she can hear some frequency but most likely is nearly completely deaf. Someone else told me she needs to be BAER tested, but that really only determines just HOW deaf she is…we already know she is deaf…and it makes so much sense now why she has been so hard to train. I feel the BAER test would just be a waste of money. I don’t really care HOW deaf she is, I just know she is deaf.


And I got my Pearl Jam tattoo completed. I added Stickman to my three crooked hearts. ❤


More Than I Deserve…

My hubby is definitely more than I deserve, and I love him more than anything. Sometimes I am afraid he’ll wake up one day and realize that he is more than I deserve…and that’s a scary thought. I don’t *really* think that’s going to happen, but sometimes the thought crosses my mind. I didn’t write this, Christian Kane did…and if I recall correctly it was with Steve Carlson…but either way, every time I hear this song…I just think of the fact that, my hubby is more than I deserve and this song is so accurate…

Livin’ with me, it ain’t easy
But I do it every day
Sometimes even now
I wanna run away
But there you are
You’re tryin’ to please me
Yeah you stand your ground
It’s more than I deserve

I’ve taken more than I’ve been givin’
I’ve taken for granted this life I’m livin’
I don’t know why heaven above
Blessed me with your sweet love
Though I never tell you what you’re worth
It’s more than I deserve

I love my husband more than anything, and I hope he does know that. I do tell him, but I hope he knows it’s true and honest and I’m not just saying it because that’s what you do…


On another note, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all the moms out there…whether I know you or not, thank you for all that you do for your children.

This is a four generations picture, my mamaw on my left(right of the photo), my mom on my right(left of the photo), myself(center), and my baby girl in front of me. It was a nice day with family. ❤ ❤ ❤




Yoü And I

So while the video is completely fucked up and honestly makes no sense with the song…this is my favorite Lady Gaga song…I effing love it!

It’s honestly to me, such an incredible song. And ignore the video, and listen to the lyrics…it’s a pure love song. That’s what I love about it.
