Hello! Welcome to The Lady Okie Blog. My name is Amanda, and I live in Oklahoma with my husband, Jordan, and two children. R was born in August 2015, and J was born in June 2017. I don't post their names on the blog and refer to them by their first initials.

I have been blogging since 2010 and love interacting with readers and making new friends.  Here you will find new posts 2-3 times a week about a marriage, faith, motherhood, pregnancybudgeting, and running, among many other things. You can view the topics tab on the top menu or my post archive on the sidebar to see all my posts!

I am a full-time working mom, and R goes to daycare during the week. Jordan is an electrician, and I am an editor. To learn more, read my Friday Introduction post!

Here are a few favorite posts to get you started.
I hope you stick around!
