Party of Five: Amy Bunn

Amy Bunn, The Joggling Board

Tell us a little about your family.

I’ve lived in the area for most of my life. My husband, Rob, and I were high school sweethearts and have been married 23 years. We were married ten years before we started our family, but now we are the Bunn “Party of Five”– our chil- dren are Rion, Rivers and Lily. Lily was named after my grandmother, Lillian, NOT Lilly Pulitzer! [laughing] Our family also includes two dogs, a blond lab, Belle and a little Maltese, Bentley [pictured with Lily and Amy], a hamster and several fish!

Does your best friend have two legs or four?

Two – my best friend is my twin sister, Carrie, who lives in Murrells Inlet. People used to mix us up, but I don’t think we look as much alike as we did as children. It was fun growing up with my best friend. Carrie has Bentley’s sister – my mother gave them to us last Christmas. I also have two brothers –one lives in Georgia and one is in North Carolina.

Why do you think dogs make such great friends and companions?

They love you unconditionally and don’t care if your breath smells, your feet stink or your hair is greasy! I’ve never had a tiny dog like Bentley before, and I just adore him. I can carry him with me everywhere, and he’s always up for a cuddle! I’ve always had dogs, though, and can’t imagine life without them.

What is your favorite thing to do with your women friends? Why do you think these friendships are so important?

I don’t have enough girls’ nights out. We are all always so busy with our careers and families. If we do get together it’s usually for a Christian concert, and we always involve the kids. Our women friends are so important – we lean on them and they lean on us. I do it all the time and call it throwing up! I “throw up” on them and they “throw up” on me! Our friends keep us sane and confirm that we are all normal – some of us are more normal than others, but it really is okay – we all have stuff to deal with!

What’s new and exciting at The Joggling Board?

We celebrated 25 years at Oak Lea last year – right after remodeling the store (with lots of blood, sweat and tears!). We now have the best of both worlds – a huge selection of clothing and accessories, for boys and girls, and Lilly Pulitzer for everyone! Need I say more? We are a family here at the Joggling Board and it shows!

The Joggling Board is located at 11096 Ocean Highway in Pawleys Island. Contact Amy at 843-237-2631 or visit
