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

Interesting list and a couple I'll have to research, but how do you go on 3 1/2 cruises?

Toni said...

I am interested in the 1/2 cruise!!! I have checked out one of your other sites as well. It sounds like your daughter is going to be one lucky little girl when she makes it home to you.

Best wishes!!!

Williamsburg, Va is were I went on my honeymoon nine years ago. Loved that place. Many years ago when my father was young people could actually drive through Colonial Willamsburg. Looks like you guys have a lot of fun together. Happy TT and thanks for visiting mine.

Chelle Y. said...

I would love to go on a Disney Cruise!

SO exciting about adopting a baby girl! Good luck with all of that!

Happy TT :)

I hope for an easy adoption for you and wonderful years with your little girl. I love Williamsburg, too---and Les Miz is my favorite musical play--hands down.

Jenny McB said...

You have fit a lot into 7 years! Can I even admit more than the 24 my husband I have had? The cruises sound like fun and maybe someday....

Nice to be back to visit your blog. Thank you for stopping by mine, have a fun weekend!

Betty said...

I enjoyed reading your TT, and thank you for visiting me today. I did go over to Michael's site and wrote about the 80's. Thanks for letting me know about the contest.

Mags said...

Sounds like a wonderful life. :) But how'd you go on 1/2 of a cruise??

And also-you need no excuse to go to a pumpkin patch!!

Laura said...

You guys sound like interesting people! Hope the adoption saga goes well!

Thanks for coming by today!!

DoubleDeckerBusGuy said...

I still think my parents found me in a pumpkin patch... when I was abandoned there by my real father... either Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, or even possibly Donald Trump...

Bubba said...

Hi stranger! Been a long time since I've been here. I'm glad to hear you're continuing to pursue the adoption! There's a lady at our church that just adopted a 4 yr old girl from the Ukraine...after she has already raised two kids to adulthood.

Glad to see you're still doing well! Great list! Happy TT...and God bless.

Celticlibrarian said...

My hubby and I went to Disneyland for our honeymoon. Good luck with the baby!

SandyCarlson said...

You guys have a good thing going....How'd you do half a cruise?

forgetfulone said...

Congrats on the upcoming adoption from China. I hope you'll tell us all about it. I'm off to visit your husband's giveaway.

Joy Renee said...

OK i have to ask: how do you take half a cruise? which half? and did u have to swim back?

Oh. OK. I paused to check comments for an answer.

That was a great hook though. Had me so curious it was hard to concentrate on the rest of the list. :)

wow have you ever been patient on that adoption process. the waiting must be agonizing at times.

thanx for stopping by. i'd misplaced your link somehow when switching browsers or something but i often remembered your hoped for little baby girl from China and wondered and said a prayer for your little and hopefully growing family.

Bubba said...

Hi there! Yep, my wbc has been between 12 and 15 for years. However, when I moved out of the house I was living in, my health got better pretty quickly.

I haven't had new labs taken in almost a year...but if I had to guess it should be lower this time. I go next month to have labs and physical...I'll let you know! BTW, my email addy is azbubba at that...well, that gmail dot com thingy.

Hope you and Val are doing well. God bless!

tipsandtricks said...

You both share the same birthday? That is sooo cool!

Jen said...

I'm still drooling over #1. We went on one Disney Cruise this past December and it was AMAZING!!! Can't wait to do another!!

thrivingat30 said...

Congratulations on your decision to adopt from China. My husband's uncle and his wife adopted from there about 6 years ago. They are so thankful and happy that they made this decision!

Great TT!
