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

Hey Amy- good luck with the yard sale, a lot of work. You will do better with a neighborhood sale. Check out yardsalequeen.com, they have a place where you can advertise your sale and answer any questions about pricing/selling. Good luck!

I caught the contest bug...

Neighborhood garage sales are awesome! We can't have them here in South Florida in the land of the gated community.

Christine said...

I love big yard sales like that! I usually get my kids to make rice crispy squares and then they can sell them. :)

Joan said...

Another Atlanta area blogger! We lived in Kennesaw from 1994-2000. Good luck on th sale. thanks for coming by my blog. We have friends also waiting to adopt from China.

Happy TT.

Good luck with the sale! I meet and reconnect with my neighbors during our annual neighborhood sale, too.

Hope you guys make lots of money and can make lots of space -- kids need it, if only for their toys!

Happy TT!

Crimson Wife said...

Best of luck with your yard sale and the adoption process! I hope you get your little girl soon :-)

Miscellaneous-Mum said...

Good luck! The best one we ever had we raised nearly $1000! I hope you get a similar (or better!) result!

Good luck with the yard sale! They're a lot of work, but one with the neighbors is much more fun.

Domestic Geek said...

Yard sales are a lot of work...I couldn't imagine trying to get a whole neighborhood in line. Good luck and hope it all goes smoothly!

Fun stuff! We had a couple in our town who were saling to fund adoption, and many, many people kept donating to them for the sale, and they had it every weekend. It was fun coming to see what new stuff they had each week!
My friend just got home with her second China adoptee! Her little one has an eating disorder, she will NOT eat, you can't put anything in her mouth except a bottle. Poor thing, she's 2.

Drew said...

Good luck with the garage sale! I hope you do well in order to help you with the adoption process, which is expensive.

Thomma Lyn said...

Ahhh, a garage sale -- we really ought to do one of those to get rid of some of our junk! :) Good luck with yours!

Happy TT, and thanks for visiting my blog.

samulli said...

Good luck with that garage sale!
Sounds like a lot of organizing, so I hope it will pay off.
I don't even know most of my neighbours' names, even though I have lived here almost all my life. Sad, really, but entirely my own fault. ;o)

Alasandra said...

Thanks for visiting my TT.

I have fond memories of garage sales from my childhood.

Thanks for visiting,

Wish I could do a garage sale and get rid of all this stuff I have laying around, but New York City is not cut for it :(

Lisa said...

Good luck with the sale, I hope you make tons of money.

Thanks for stopping by.

Journeywoman said...

Good luck at the garage sale.

Daisy said...

Anything that helps neighbors become closer is good!

TeaMouse said...

The sale sounds like it's coming along well. It's great that you have the neighborhood involved, you'll probably draw a bigger crowd when there are multiple families participating.

SusieJ said...

Good luck!!!

Rene said...

I've never had a garage sale. I'm not sure that I've actually been to one. My inlaws are big garage sale people. I don't have the patience to have one.

JAM said...

Best wishes on the garage sale and adoption. Lovely Wife's first cousin and his wife in Chattanooga are in the same process, to adopt a baby from China.

I love yard sales!!!!!!!

Barbara said...

Good luck with your sale. I love to browse, but never would have one at my home. Too much work - participated in one at my sis/i/law's, and that one was enough.

Thanks for visiting.

Shelby said...

have fun with the sale!! May you sell lots and lots!! :)

ERZSÉBET said...

I wish you all the luck with your sale! I hadn't realized just how much work they are until we had our own before we moved. I'm not much of a yard sale goer and that was the first sale I had been involved in. We didn't do as well as we had hoped. I had things over priced and not many people made offers. People want things for next to nothing, even the never used items. It was a fun day though!

Thanks for stopping by and again, good luck!

Starrlight said...

Good luck with that yard sale, they are fun but a lot of work!

Chelle said...

My mom loves Garage Sales. She can always find something great!

Moving Mama said...

I get soooo carried away when I have garage sales - I love them! I think I'd sell everything in my house if my husband wasn't around to stop me :) Great post...

Lori said...

Thats awesome....hope you raise lots of money:)

G.P. said...

You'll probably do way better with the whole 'hood in on it. Congrats all the way around

Nicole Austin said...

Good luck with the sale. I hope its profitable!

Jess said...

Good luck with the yard sale! Funny how things just keep getting bigger and bigger...but hopefully with all your neighbors involved you will all make some cashola! Take it easy and do a bit at a time.

Samantha Lucas said...

Oh I love garage sales. Hope you get tons of people come by. People fascinate me. lol

Terra said...

What a wonderful idea! I hope you have lots of success!

Titania Starlight said...

Yard sales are fun but are a lot of work. I have not had one since I moved from Pennsylvania 10 years ago. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Good luck with the yard sale.

Joy Renee said...

hope all the work pays off.

can't wait to hear that your long wait is over.

thanx for visiting my tribute to my husband's grandmother.

Haley-O said...

Good luck with the sale!!! We're going to have one soon, too. A lot of work! But, worth it. :)

Janet said...

Happy Yard Sale, I had to quit attending yard sales, need to have one of my own but just to hot right now.
