Hi all!  My name is Amy Trauntvein and I am excited to share a bit of myself with you.

Meet Amy

Some things about myself.  I enjoy gardening and puttering around my yard. Nothing tastes better than a homegrown tomato!  I like to exercise, mostly walking (outside and on my treadmill) and Pilates but my favorite is Yoga.  I’ve been active with yoga for 7 years and really should get certified one day, hopefully.  I love to read and finding books at yard sales and goodwill is my favorite.  You can’t beat  fifty cents for a book!  I’ve got a “to read” stack in my bedroom which keeps growing.  I’m buying them faster than I can read them.  I have a weakness for books.  I have fun baking and sharing the treats with others, can’t keep it all in the house or I will devour them myself!  Not friendly for the figure.  I am very active in my church and am currently serving the children in our congregation aged 18 months-12 years old.  I sure love those kids!  I love volunteering at my kids’ schools doing whatever I can to help the teachers and staff.  I love being in the classroom and getting to know all the kids.  But my highest passion is couponing and bargain shopping.  When I was a newlywed, we were poor, below poverty level poor so I had to learn how to make a buck stretch and stretch.  I’ve been saving on my shopping for over 20 years now so it is just a way of life for me. I am not an extreme couponer like you see on TV, but it IS fun to save a few bucks!  I just might take you on a few shopping trips with me in the future. Meet AmyI have been married for 22 years to my awesome hubby, Todd and we have 4 equally awesome kids who keep my young!  Our favorite thing to do together is travel.  Here we are at Mount Rushmore, South Dakota last summer.  We’ve taken the kids to 44 of the 50 states, including Hawaii, and last year we spent a week traveling around England for my oldest son’s high school graduation. We are always up for a new and adventure!  Every summer we drive 3600 miles roundtrip, to spend part of our summer with most of our extended family who lives out west.  Well, that’s me in a nutshell!  ~Amy

    Cool, nice to met you. I live in New Zealand and it’s nice to see how people in the USA live. We do things a little different in NZ and we have different holidays, also we cook a lot different then you, so it’s nice to catch up on how you do things in the USA. look forward to seeing your blogs.
