Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

Thursday 13



Thirteen days with my Michael


1…. Thursday 13
Thirteen memorable moments with my Michael over the past 6 years


1. Our wedding week-nothing will ever be more perfect or more romantic
2. Michael surprised me by taking me to a Dixie Chicks concert while we were dating
3. The Christopher Cruise-a good time was had by all
4. The adoption orientation- it was full of hope and promise
5. The day we picked up our first dog, Lucy the Basset hound
6. The day my Michael came to my apartment to cheer me up and I almost didn’t let him in. We watched The Pirate Movie and I fell in love with him then
7. My first holiday season in my first apartment and Michael planted a Christmas tree and hung lights while I was at work, and cleaned the apartment and made sure Christmas music was on
8. Thanksgiving 2 years ago. My parents were here and his mom and we had a great time.
9. Our first movie date...to see The Replacements
10. 9/11 Not only did we witness the event on TV together, hours later we found out we were moving to Atlanta
11. This past year, when I got a new bed and I was surprised. Michael had it delivered while we were on our anniversary
12. Every Parrot head event. All of them have been fun. Truly, Michael has made me a Buffet fan
13. The night Michael drove me to Birmingham and led me to believe we were going to see Bon Jovi, but we were actually going to see Steven Curtis Chapman and get a meet and great. This was one of the first times; the idea of adopting from China entered our hearts.

Michael - Lover of Amy said...

I'm not being picky, just wanted to clarify a bit (this is Amy's Michael, subject of the TT).

I did surprise her with the trip to Birmingham to see Steven (Easter week 2002). We went and saw him again that October in Chattanooga which was very close to our first anniversary and that's when we did the meet and greet after the show. It was funny because I had an 8x10 of SCC performing and he asked when it was taken. It turned out he knew it was recent because of the shirt he was wearing! I was working for Family Christian Stores at the time, and SCC had performed at our manager's conference in August, so the pic was about 6 weeks old.

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

That was awesome. I hope your hubby appreciates you as much as you do him.

Sanni said...

This TT is so cute and romantic... going to shut down my notebook in a second to give a looooong hug to my Mr F.

Thanks so much for your awesome comment. What a wonderful list you have this week! (AND, it's great to meet another Parrothead--I was raised on the "Volcano" album--apparently it would send me straight to sleep as a baby :) )
