On December 19th, 2013, I was standing at my kitchen counter thinking of a short, catchy name for my blog. I never thought that not even two years later, I’d see “Amanda Yantos – Dog Mom Days” on a news story!
My best friend of 16 years, Andria, is not only an amazing friend, but she created my logo and this fantastic word collage for my blog. She also designed my business cards and has taken professional pictures of my kids. Andria is absolutely talented and she’s for hire if you need something super fun created!
I was really excited for today. My mom and I had a shopping date planned to find me the perfect dress that I could dazzle the red carpet in during the BlogPaws conference in Nashville, TN in May. I did not expect to find so many gorgeous gowns, and have such a hard time choosing! My mom surprised me by telling me she would purchase my dress…so which one did I choose?
I grew up in Ahwatukee, a gorgeous suburb in the southern part of Phoenix, AZ. It’s a safe, close knit community where people tend to raise their families and end up staying because it’s such a wonderful place to live. I went to elementary school, middle school and high school in Ahwatukee, so it was such an honor to be interviewed by the local Ahwatukee Foothills Newspaper about my recent BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Award nomination!
