Why Mandi Shandi?

Lots of people wonder "Why is your blog called Mandi Shandi's ?" Well, Mandi is my first name. Shantell was my middle name. I was never fond of it, and dropped it in favor of my maiden name when I got married. My Mom always called me “Mandi Shandi” as a kid, and even now she calls me that occasionally. It is just one of those names that stuck. When I decided to start a blog and was trying to come up with a name for it, Mandi Shandi was the first thing that came to mind and I went with it. So for those of you that asked, “Is that your real name?” yes, no, kinda sorta. I guess it’s my real nickname is the best way to put it.

I used to irritate my daughter by calling her Shana Banana. For some reason, she didn't like that at all!

(I'm known as Deewee because my baby brother couldn't say "Jilly". I would've thought you named your blog as such because you're Mandy...and you're Handy. Like "Mandy's Handi", just with the letter's bumped around. I was surfing for entertainment center re-do's and found yours. Love it!
