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

Michaels brother and family!

Michael has always been able to entertain himself


Basil loved the kids section at IKEA

The 3 brothers.. Michael, Tim and Peter

I love this picture of Michael. He looks so stinkin happy!

Yesterday was a lot of fun. Michael and I had the morning to ourselves and then met Tim, Mery and Basil at the Varsity for lunch. Basil had spent the morning at the Childrens Museum and apparently had a lot of fun. Lunch was yummy and spent in good conversation and people watching. Then, off to my first trip to IKEA. This place is big. By the end I had lost my enthusiasm, but I had a good time.

When you get there, you borrow and BIG yellow bag to tote your purchases. There are some great finds here. The colors and designs are not my style but I did like a lot of the organizational things and a lot of the furniture. Basil enjoyed the kids section. Once again, this place is huge and I can see why people love it.

After IKEA, we met Peter for dinner at O Charleys and then everyone went back to our house to hang out and Basil got to see the kitty again. We were able to share the China video with them and that was nice.

We walked them out and saw several fireflies outside..That was pretty cool. WE hope to see them again before the Holidays!

I LOVE IKEA--my all time favorite store! Looks like you had a lot of fun!

I can't remember the last time I saw fireflies, Amy. They were as common as could be when I was growing up in southeast Texas. Not so much in Colorado I guess.

And I've never been in an IKEA either. But it looks like fun.

Thank you for your kinds words on my post about Rob losing his job. Again. To learn a new grandchild is on the way on the same day, well life can be a real roller coaster sometimes. Your words were a comfort to me.

We got an IKEA in Michigan about a year ago.... it's a pretty cool store, but I'm with you, most of the furniture stuff is not my style, but there are a lot of really cool organizational items to keep me happy!

My daughter was just asking to go out and catch fireflys this evening!!! One of her favorite things to do...they are plentyful around here!

I've always heard of IKEA, but didn;t know what kind of store it was. Actually the few pictures you showed doesn't really spark my interest. I'm more of a Target, Kohls kinda gal.

My hubby always finds a way to entertain himself! I don't know who is more of a kid-our children or him ;o)

That is a nice picture of Michael. He's a cutie. I think you guys are such a cute couple. Can't wait to say what a cute family you are!!

Hope your weekend is great and I am so happy you have found a home church! That is a true answer to prayer.
