About Me

Hi! Thanks for stopping by! Call me Amanda or Mandi.  I currently live with my husband in Fresno, California.  I was born in New Jersey (cue Bruce Springsteen’s “Jersey Girl”), lived in St. Louis for a hot second, then spent a few awesome years in Colorado Springs.  I went to high school in a Chicagoland suburb: Crystal Lake, and that is where my family is currently.

Check out the categories above and explore! I’m all about DIY projects, running, eating, fitness, and family. Let me know your thoughts and reach out! I love connecting! You can find me actively tweeting & instagramming: @mandijstewart or reach me by email at amandajeanninestewart@gmail.com


I’m a graduate of Iowa State University where I jammed as many memories as I could into four years. (GO CYCLONES!)


I have my Master’s in College Student Personnel from Western Illinois University. While I was a #SAgrad, I worked in the OSA (Office of  Student Activities).


I met my amazing husband at NACA (National Association for Campus Activities), where he swept me off my feet with his extensive knowledge of block booking and taught me how to play improv games.  We got married on June 15, 2014!

Bursting with excitement, married to my best friend!

After graduate school I needed a creative outlet so I took a risk, and became a Chloe + Isabel merchandiser. It’s been amazing, brought amazing people into my life, and teaches me more about myself every day. (Instagram @candibymandi).

I can’t wait to get to know you better. Be well!
