Chillin with Dad, Luna and some leprachaun's...

Dad came over to my apartment this evening to spend some time with his 'grand-kittnen', Luna. Naturally, Luna absolutely loved dad and snuggled on him for a good portion of the evening.
Since there was not much to watch on t.v., we popped in the dvd player, 'Darby O'Gill and the Little People'. I barely recall watching this on disney channel as a kid *re-run of course* but dad remembers it well. I think he said he was around 5 or 6 years old when he first saw it. Of course it is awesome vintage Walt Disney at it's best. If you haven't seen it yet, click on the following link to help change this:

Here are some pics from our entertaining evening:

A very cool picture I got at Walmart last night

If you are an unfortunate individual that has not seen this awesome movie, make a point to watch it at least one time in your life.

Yay for old school Walt Disney!

Beyond crafty

First of all, Happy St. Patrick's day everyone!

It's been a great day. Ms. Luna absolutely loves her new home *and new mama*
This morning while making breakfast, I watched my 'sis' Angie and her fellow business partner present a fashion show for a local morning talk show on t.v. Angie was the commentator, while models, including Megan (my other 'sis') showed off beautiful gowns and tuxedos. Click on the following link to look for the video, it should be on the website tonight or tomorrow.

After watching the show, I kicked back and read a good book called, 'The Battle Belongs to the Lord' by Joyce Meyer. I cannot count the times I've read this book, but every time I read it I get something new out of it. A little while later, Geoff came over to play with Luna. Luna absolutely LOVES uncle Geoffy! So much so in fact that she slept around his neck while he was surfing the net on my computer. Mom and Megan joined us for a little while and we all got to catch up on everything going on with each other.

After everyone left, I got ready and headed over to mom and dad's for artsy crafts and dinner. Let me just say one Mom puts Martha Stewart to shame! Last week we went to Michael's and bought stuff to make flower arrangements and wreaths with. Tonight I watched in awe as my Mom put together the most GORGEOUS wreath for my apartment!

*click on the pic for awesome detail!*

Mom made this arrangement too!

Thanks Mom!! Love you!

Antique shopping and a kitty

One thing I love to do is go antique shopping with my mom. We are fortunate to have nice antique stores here where I live. Some stores have ridiculously high prices and some stores are just plain awesome with their prices. What I love most is when you find that little something special...kind of a diamond in the rough.

Here are some pics of a fun day of antique shopping w/mom:

I bought for $83

I'm going to sand this down and paint
it white, it'll look great in my room!

Another view

Awesome butcher block mom likes

Oak chest of drawers for around $200

Then of course there is that one piece
you love...but it's ungodly expensive..
Mom frowning at the $650 cabinet
*this is the discounted price*

Last, but certainly not least the other fun news....I GOT A NEW KITTY!

As you all know, Monkey kitty was home sick for mom and dad's so we brought her back. Anyhow, mom bought me a kitten from the animal shelter and she is gorgeous! I will be picking her up from the vet on Monday afternoon! I'm so excited! Her name is Luna, because she is a beautiful white fuzzy kitty with a sweet disposition. She also has one green eye and one blue eye. Here are some pics from the animal shelter:

Here is Ms. Luna!

Life after Nursing school...

First of all, I want to thank everyone for the well-wishes! I am thankful for everyone of you!

It's still hard to believe that I will not be studying for a test anymore. In fact it still hasn't sunken in that I'm out of school...and it's been three months!
I guess I will never truly stop learning, especially being in the medical field.
Even though I am outrageously thankful to pass boards and officially have the title of 'Registered Nurse', I feel....weird. It's hard to explain, but I feel as though I must figure out how to 'live again'. For the past 6 years, my life has consisted sole of studying, working eating and sleeping...oh yeah and the occasional outing with friends.
It's kind of sad that I have to do some soul searching to figure out what I like now. I mean some things are still the same, ie: photography, coffee and books.
For example, when I went shopping for towels for my new place, I went straight for the wisteria ones with butterflies...instead of pink...or even gold and blue. Another example is when my Monky kitty didn't work out at the apartment, I was seriously considering getting a small dog....A DOG!!! Me...Amy....that has grown up with cats her whole life!
Anyhow, I guess it will take some time to figure out what I like now. It's like trying to figure out who I am all over again!

Am I the only one this has ever happened to?? I tend to be different than most people anyhow.... lol.

Well everyone, I'm going to get off of here and hang with Geoff and Megan in their new apartment!
Take care everyone!
