Hello! I am Amanda. (And the little guy is Hunter.) I am glad you've stopped by.
I am a new mom to a son born 12/10/12. I actually enjoy using cloth diapers and chose to give birth without an epidural. But that's not what I am all about. Occasionally I write about shoes, for they were my first love. Sometimes I post photos of vintage fashion or thrift store finds because it's fun and cheaper than paying retail. (Which is really difficult for me to do, but don't always have to thanks to zulily and GILT, can I get an amen?) I'm passionate about making a difference with my dollars, so, as much as possible, I buy goods that are Fair Trade Certified or Made in USA.
"Queso Suizo" is Spanish for Swiss cheese. When I moved to Switzerland with my husband, Isaiah, in late September of 2008, I started this blog to document our adventure. I blogged about our travels, my observations of Swiss culture, and the overall follies of life abroad. When we moved back to San Diego, CA in July of 2010, I had grown a bit addicted to blogging and I knew I wanted to keep blogging. Since my blogging experience in Switzerland started it all, I decided to keep my old posts and keep the same title, even though I now rarely write about Swiss stuff or cheese.
And since I wouldn't be who I am today without my experience living abroad, this blog is a sort of homage to those nearly two years of life among the cows. I hope you stay a while. Enjoy!
