Amanda is a 20-something stay-at-home-mom to 2 canine children (Bella and Bentley) and 1 human child (Madison) who arrived punctually on her due date: February 9, 2015. Amanda is a Tennesseean from birth and became a transplant Memphian in 2010 when she and her husband (Tyler) moved from East Tennessee for continued education. After living in downtown and midtown, the Parks family now calls East Memphis home. Amanda could easily eat Mexican food every day-- best case scenario also includes a sunny day, a patio, and a margarita. She enjoys reading suspense novels and any book about a dog, but topping the list is shopping-- Amanda is constantly on the hunt for bargains and always feels her best in pink lipstick and killer shoes.
