It's All Or Nothing...

Our social calendar seems to be one extreme or the other. Either we have nothing to do, nowhere to go, and no one to see, or we are practically double-booked. Tonight we had dinner with Zach and Suzanne downtown in the Gulch at Sambuca. Just grabbed this shot as we were heading home...

Dinner with old friends...

We had dinner tonight with an old friend who recently moved back to the Nashville area from Houston. Andrea moved to Texas shortly after getting married about 10 years ago, and we hadn't seen her since. Now she not only has a husband, but three kids.

We spent a pleasant evening catching up, and getting to know her family a bit. This is her youngest son, who wasn't too thrilled at first about me taking his picture. He kept trying to hide his smile, lol!

Household Organizing Projects

I spent some time today organizing some areas of the house. You know, the things that get messy over time, like the kitchen drawers and cabinets. The weather was cold and dreary, so it was the perfect time to be productive inside.

And More Winter Weather Arrives

Well, it wasn't much of a break in the started snowing again today while I was out running errands. I was able to get everything done and get back home before the roads got too bad. Of course, that included a Starbuck's run for Peppermint Hot Chocolate, and the fixin's for yummy tacos tonight.

It's Finally Finished!!!

After months and months of planning and work and spending new home office and craft room is finished!

After Parrish announced that she was not moving back here after she finished college, we decided that space was too precious around here to waste it on a room that was only used for two weeks at Christmas and a month in the summer. So Parrish's bedroom is now my office.

No matter how much planning went into it, there are still some things that aren't exactly as I would like, but I haven't been able to figure out a better solution at this time--like where my printer and scanner are located. And my craft desk is a bit too small, but nothing any bigger will fit. And I'm not thrilled with the filing drawers--they are made for 12x12 scrapbook paper, not my business files. Also, we plan to replace the ceiling light fixture with a fan now that I have experienced how warm the computer equipment and lights make the room.

But overall, I am very pleased with the results, and I really enjoy spending time in this room!
