{Our kitchen it DONE!!!!}

Jeff and I are finally done with our kitchen! After three very long months I am so happy. The kitchen was the last big thing to redo in the condo before we put it on the market.

Taz loves to sit on the fridge and watch me when I am in the kitchen.

{Running Shoes}

For all of you runners out there, I need some help. What shoes would you recommend for running?

I have been walking for a few weeks and have nice walking shoes, but when I started to run in them it did not go to well. I was looking at some Nike's but there is so many types of shoes. Overwhelmed and need help!


{Weekend Recap}

WARNING long post :)

For Lindsey's Birthday we went to Hiro's Japanese Steak House (amazing food) and then to World of Beers.

Prepping the food

I was so proud of Kim, she drank a beer with out a straw.

WOB's has more than 30 drafts, and 200 bottles. I think Jeff was overwhelmed on what to order.



Saturday we were very lazy during the day. We cleaned a bit and caught up with Tivo. At night Jeff, my Daddy, cousin and Uncle all got tickets to go see the Monster Truck Rally. The girls were not to interested in that so we went to dinner at BJ's and then a movie. We saw Leap Year...It was a cute girlie movie (if you love your man you will not make him see this movie) that was extremely predictable!

I got my hair done and it came out great.

Then for dinner we went to my parents house and watched the football game. My Dad made his famous Supper on a bread slice. (which is basically meatloaf on french bread) Jeff and Dad devoured it. I made myself a salad and brought that over for me. While the guys watched the game Mum and I watched Extreme Home Makeover. Two reasons I love to watch this show... One, It always makes me cry. Good tears, I like to see the families happy. And two we are always looking to see if we can see Jeff's best friend John. He has worked on the show for three years as a builder.


{Happy Birthday Linsdey!!!!}

My best friend is 24 today! I love you lion!


{don't know what to wear}

One of my best friends birthday is tomorrow and I need some help on what to wear. We are going to dinner at Hero's Japanese Steak house and then going to World of Beers. Both places are pretty casual so I want to wear jeans with my new flat boots.

*Hair and Makeup*
I am curling my hair, and either going to put it half up like LC or all down like Miley. The makeup will be a smoky eye with light foundation.
For both outfits I will wear skinny jeans, black flat boots, my fossil watch and my Pandora bracelet.

This is my favorite option. The cardigan is black not white.

Or this, the back of the shirt has diamonds buttons that go half way down. So I figured I would pair them off with diamond studs.
Let me know what you galls think! Thanks for the help.

Always, Amy


{These are a few of my Favorite things}

Being a Vegetarian is not always easy when you are eating out! A lot of time when you go somewhere they will have vegetarian meals but they are deep fried…. I don’t like that at all! But my 5 favorite places to get grub and that have food for me is.

1. Tijuana Flats – this is my go to place for every meal. I cannot get enough of TF’s. Every Valentine’s Day Jeff and I come here. I have no patience when I have to wait for something, and I don’t see the point on spending a ton of money to go somewhere to eat. With TF’s I know I am going to love it!
2. Courtside Grill – This is not a chain restaurant, sorry everybody. But if you are ever in the Tampa Bay area you will have to stop in here. It is owned by Matt Geiger who was a NBA basketball player. It is two blocks away from work. The Mahi is delicious!

3. Carrabba’s Italian Grill – My baby sister works here, so the 50% off discount is wonderful! They have my favorite martini drink there, the “st pete tini”.

4. Bonefish - How could you not love this place? I don’t have many restrictions here; I eat fish so the sky is the limit.

5. Applebee’s - Drink specials :). My hubby loves this place. We usually go here once a week. I don’t get much here. I usually order a salad and modify it. No cheese, dressing, or meat.


{These are a few of my Favorite things}

I was talking to my hubby and thinking of a way for you galls to get to know me better. Then a commercial for Sound of music came on…. The song “These are a few of my Favorite things”. That’s it! Every Wednesday I will have a subject with a theme (like books, music, movies, ext.).

My Top Five Books… (Not in any particular order.)

1. All four of the Twilight books: by Stephenie Meyer – I will totally admit that I love these books! Team Edward!!!
2. Redeeming love: by Francine Rivers
3. Tuesdays with Morrie: by Mitch Albom
4. Dear John: by Nicholas Sparks – I am so excited; they made this into a movie and will be out on Feb, 5 2010.
5. Love you Forever: by Robert N. Munsch. – I know this is a children’s book, but my mother read this to me every night. And I am so thrilled to one day read this to my children. My mother still says to me, “I will love you forever, I will like you for always, and as long as you’re living my baby you’ll be.”

What are your favorite books?


{Goals for 2010}

This year my goals are....

~Keep the inside of my car clean. It looks like I live in my car.

~Wake up an hour earlier to read my Quite Time and make our lunches.

~Sell our condo and buy a house.

~Pay off debt.

~Eat out only twice a week.

~blog at least 2 times a week.

~Go walking 3 times a week.

I am really hoping I stick to them this year!


{Happy New Year}

I hope everyone had an awesome New Years! Jeff and I had a blast.

We went to dinner with Jeff's parents at Cody's Roadhouse Grill. I love that place.

This is the largest beer ever. The waitress wanted to know if we wanted the small or the large. Jeff and I were thinking the large was a bit taller than the small... ya it is a big difference. The large equals 3 1/2 beers. I could not finish that!

My in laws! John and Sandy

Hubs and me at dinner.

After dinner we wanted to meet up with Jeff's best friend Best (his name is John Best, I call him Best). Best lives in LA and works for Extreme Home make over, so it is really hard to see him. So naturally we went to our favorite dive bar Masteries.

Celebrating the New Year with Best.

My handsome man and me!
