Bullfrogs and Bulldogs


+ Ad Space Giveaway

Hi there! I'm Amanda from Bullfrogs and Bulldogs! I'm so excited to be guest posting here today! First, I want to give Courtney a huge thank you for inviting me over today! I love Baxtron{Life} for so many reasons but mostly because of the vulnerability and realness Courtney puts out there. Although at times she may be afraid to share the truth, she always has the strength and courage to do so and it's something I really admire about her.

Today I'm here to share a little bit about moi! I'd love it if you'd come by sometime and visit me. I love making new friends and learning more about all of you! You can find me here, at my blog Bullfrogs and Bulldogs and of course I am also on: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and I would absolutely love it if you'd follow along with me and of course, I will follow back!

So a little about me. I am a born and raised Pacific Northwest gal growing up in the suburbs of Seattle, WA and now live in a little town called Newberg in Oregon. I moved down here in May of 2011 to live with my now {as of May 2012} hubby on our family vineyard, Omero Cellars and our little farm we created together. I traded in my Toms and skinny jeans for muck boots and carharts and spend my days getting my hands dirty working around the property. I started Bullfrogs and Bulldogs as a was to share my transition with my friends and family back home but over the course of the year it has turned into so much more.

I write a lot about projects I'm working on around the house, a hobby I didn't know I loved until I moved into our 1970's home, and I share yummy vegan and gluten-free recipes I create to show that even vegans have fun in the kitchen! But most importantly, I try to make you laugh with the funny experiences I have here on the family vineyard and farm such as the time a coyote got on the property or when my 'city' house cat got stuck 40 feet up in a tree and I called the fire department. There really never is a dull moment on the farm and I try to make the most of every experience by finding humor in it.
One of my biggest goals is to be a little more vulnerable on the blog. I've shifted a little bit away from the original intent of Bullfrogs and Bulldogs and it is my hope to share a little more personal stuff about transitioning, which I think will be a forever process. I have good days and bad ones, ups and downs, and one of the things I love most about blogging is the connections I've made with my readers and other bloggers. So I truly would love it if you'd stop by and gave us the opportunity to get to know each other better! Here are a few photos of where I live:

I also have a fun little giveaway for all you lovely readers! I'm giving TWO of you a TWO month Top Dog Ad Spot on Bullfrogs and Bulldogs!
