what ya have, what ya have, what ya have!

2011-08-20T11:48:23.723-07:00

After the coke a cola museum we made a stop over at The Varsity, it's the largest drive in dinner in the world holding up to 600 cars and 800 people at a time. They have a long check counter where all the workers there scream "what ya have, what ya have, what ya have" 3 times before you order. And while the place was cool to see in person the food doesn't make me want to come back for more, then



Always, coke a cola!

2011-08-20T11:48:23.723-07:00

If there is one thing that I love, it's coke! As much as I try to stay away from drinking it I can't help it. But I figured since I don't smoke or really drink alcohol or any other wild drug out there then I can let myself enjoy the refreshing taste of a coke. And since I love it so much it only made sense to check out the museum of coke while staying here in Atlanta.



Small town

2011-08-20T11:48:23.723-07:00

Saturday, did not go as we had planned. That is not necessary a bad thing though, we had planned on seeing some wild animals but the weather had another idea for us. So, with rain in the forecast me and my mother decided maybe a little shopping in a small town is just what we needed.About an hour after driving on some of the prettiest back roads (where I saw donkeys) we came up to the lovely



Weekend.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.724-07:00

We are in a toss up between a wild animal safari or a lush garden setting with hiking, tomorrow. But I do have to say it's not a bad life when those are the decisions you are trying to make. Other then that, we have been taking the day easy, laying around eating, reading, and snoozing. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and looking forward to reporting what we chose to do.



The Tea Room.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.724-07:00

While staying in GA, my mom thought it would be fun if us girls went to the tea room for some lunch and sweets. We enjoyed yummy sandwiches, cake, and tea. They also had a great little antique shop inside too.



In the kitchen with my dad.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.724-07:00

The one meal I wanted to learn to cook more then any other in our house, was my dad's chinese. It took me all the way up to my last few years living with my parents to get the courage to try it (I was (am) a picky eater) but once I tried it, I found it to be delicious and I wanted to eat it at least once a week. It's the one meal I pride myself in making for guest and since my dad is the one that



Dog walk that turned into a party!

2011-08-20T11:48:23.724-07:00

Needless to say, but I'm pretty sure Encore loves it here! He has never had so many dogs to play with. Everyday there is a different dog to meet. But he really hit it off with Huck (the white dog) and Boomer (multi color, great dane). It is so fun to watch my dog make friends and see him interact with other dogs. I'm a proud mama over here!!!



Pretty skies

2011-08-20T11:48:23.724-07:00

I can't get over how pretty the skies have been here the past few nights. Everywhere I turn the clouds are glowing different colors as the sun goes down. It's so peaceful at my parents house, we are surrounded by trees and open skies almost everywhere we look (even if they do live in a neighborhood) I hope one day to own a beautiful house and land where I can come out and just feel like the sky



A look into the weekend...

2011-08-20T11:48:23.725-07:00

1. Encore and Ivy learning to play together2. Pretty sunset skies3. Famous GA red dirt4. Dad and me cooking chinese for the family5. At the farmers marketThis weekend as been full of activity! so far... we have enjoyed movie marathons, cooking family meals together, checking out the hugest farmers market I have ever seen, playing with the dogs, enjoying pretty skies, eating and eating and eating,



To my sissy..

2011-08-20T11:48:23.725-07:00

Happy 25th Birthday!You are amazing friend and a wonderful mother to now two beautiful boys!I love you and i'm so glad to call you family!!!!



...and then there was dessert

2011-08-20T11:48:23.725-07:00




Fajita night!

2011-08-20T11:48:23.725-07:00

Family time in our house seems to be dinner time when mom makes a yummy home cooked dinner (which I have missed so very much) and when dad gets home for work. Everyone joins the table and fixes a plate, where the conversations begin from everything to movies, food, dreams, life, and of course the dogs (since they demand the attention at dinner time)! I have forgot how much I love sitting at a



First few days in Georgia

2011-08-20T11:48:23.725-07:00

1. The great dane and doberman learning to live with one another.2. Home cooked meals.3. My brother and his girlfriend.4. The book I just finished. 5. Mr. Fickle (aka rodent) making himself at home, already.



And we are here...

2011-08-20T11:48:23.725-07:00

After two days of preparing with my mom, two cars filled with my things, two cats, a dog, and a 5 hour drive, we finally made to my parents house in GA. We (me and my pets) have been here two nights and it's weird knowing, I won't be in Nashville for over a month but at least Guitar Hero will be coming to GA for a few gigs, so hopefully this way I can see him a couple of times. It is refreshing



Elijah!

2011-08-20T11:48:23.725-07:00

Exciting news going on over here! My sissy is heading to the hospital as I type this in hopes of my second little nephew being born today! Little Elijah (that's his name) must be in a hurry to meet the world, being that he is not due till the 2nd week of Aug but we are all more then anxious to meet him too! Please keep my sister in your prayers for a healthy and easy delivery!



My two heros!

2011-08-20T11:48:23.726-07:00

Ok, ok.. I know I am like way behind on post! I just don't know where my time goes anymore. So much is happening in such a short amount of time it feels like. Guitar Hero has been on the road non stop and only coming home for short periods at a time so I have been savoring my moments with him. And as of next week, I will be taking a month long vacation to GA to visit my family!!! I am so excited



Red, White, and Blue!

2011-08-20T11:48:23.726-07:00

One great thing about holidays, is getting creative with your food. Which is exactly what me and my friend Megan did. We took white cake batter and separated into 3 bowls, dying two of them red and blue. Then by filling each cake with all 3 colors we created the perfect red, white, and blue cupcake. So, when you bite into it you got an awesome little surprise. However, we had to make sure they



Sparklers!!

2011-08-20T11:48:23.726-07:00

My dear friend, Megan (hence the "M") came over to celebrate 4th of July with me and my dad which made for fun times with sparklers. Who would have thought trying to make letters with sparklers would have been so hard. I can't begin to tell you how many failed pictures we took before we got these one (mostly because of me). Still it was fun and made for lots of laughs. P.S. Thanks dad for being



My Fourth of July

2011-08-20T11:48:23.726-07:00

1. Cheese Pizza2. Friends and Sparklers3. Encore and my sweet dad4. Yummy festive CupcakesIt was a good 4th of July! My dad is in town visiting, plus having good friends over and yummy food makes everything better. The only thing missing was Guitar Hero, who actually ended up coming home last night.. so like I said, It was a good 4th of July!!!!



Belle Meade Mansion.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.726-07:00

Here are a few pictures, from when me and Guitar Hero visited the Belle Meade Mansion the other day. Yes, I admit we are still behind on doing a lot of Nashville tourist things, but we do try. In fact we were both very happy with the tour and the facts we learned about the mansion. I would recommend this if you come to Nashville and like learning about a little history of the town your in.P.S.



Cheesecake Factory.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.726-07:00

Me and Guitar Hero went to the Cheesecake factory today for lunch and lets just say it was delicious! And I am not only talking about the Reese peanut butter cheesecake we had (not pictured because guitar hero dug into to fast) The main meal was so yummy and so were the views. I love the setting of that place... it makes me dream of what Europe would be like.



My weekend.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.727-07:00

1. A bird watching, cat.2. After the storm is over (nope, that's not photoshopped)3. A chocolate cake that we devoured (or more like I did)4. A non stop reading marathon that has been going on with me5. Raindrops on a pretty flower6. Encore, enjoying a yummy stick he found



A little behind.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.727-07:00

I feel so behind on post. In fact these pictures were taken last week when my mom was in town. We had enjoyed a nice quite evening on the back porch watching lighting bugs and sipping on daiquiris.. which seems like forever ago now.I still have a ton of video to upload and to make into little videos for y'all to watch from CMA Fest which I am hoping I get done this week. I am just sorry I am

Find Guitar Hero...

2011-08-20T11:48:23.727-07:00

Here is a little video that was sent to me.See if you can find the sexy Guitar Hero in it?!I will have personal videos coming later...



The Cove

2011-08-20T11:48:23.727-07:00

During my moms visit, I somehow convinced her to stay an extra night and I am so glad I did. We spent her last day laying around and watching movies but in the evening we went for dinner at one of my new favorite local spots, The Cove. It sits on a lake and is a great place to watch the water and sounds of boats pass by, the food is delicious, and the company was even better. It was an amazing



And the tradition begins..

2011-08-20T11:48:23.727-07:00

Something that became very obviously to me this past visit of my mother's is that she does not only come to Nashville to see me. I think she really comes for the biscuits... Loveless Cafe biscuits that is.That is always the first thing on her list to do when she is here and no matter how many tourist or over crowded or how long the wait is, we will probably do it every time she comes.



My weekend

2011-08-20T11:48:23.728-07:00

1. Having my beautiful mom into visit2. Squeezing Jason Aldean's butt3. Seeing my sexy man sing and play4. Lazy cats soaking up the summer sun5. watching lighting bugs dance on the back porch6. curling up in a blanket my great grandmother made



Just because...

2011-08-20T11:48:23.728-07:00




CMA FEST!

2011-08-20T11:48:23.728-07:00

Well lovelies, CMA Fest is starting this weekwhich means I will be busy helping out Guitar Hero any way I canall while enjoying the festive week as much as possible.My mom is on her in way to join me and hopefully I will take you all along too(by video and photos of course)Stay tuned for next week!P.S. The medicine really seemed to help Encore. He is doing much better. Thank you for all your



When he hurts, I hurt.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.728-07:00

My baby, Encore has been in a lot of pain. Somehow, he managed to hurt is leg without us knowing how. He has been crying out whenever he puts pressure on his leg. We rushed him to the vet but he acted really brave around all the new people and wouldn't let them know where it hurt the most. We ended up with some pain medicine to help ease it but for the most part it's been hard day for all of us.



Sonic, a little late night date.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.728-07:00

The other night we decided to load the puppy upand head on over to Sonic for some yummy, yet unhealthy late night snacks.But hey, sometimes milkshakes and onion rings are a must!I am just thankful that Guitar Hero does not judge me for my late night snack choicesor for that matter that I wore my bed time slippers on our little date.



Signature dish.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.728-07:00

Do you all have a signature dish?Most of the women I know do. It's kinda funny to grow up and start to notice you have one really good recipe that you make for every party you go to.Mine happens to a pasta salad... that I have learned to tweak and make my own.Everyone ends up loving it and asking me how to make it.So, lets hear it... whats your signature dish?



Memorial Weekend.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.729-07:00

We went to parties, we ate by the water, we went on trails.. basically we had a wonderful weekend!



Encore shares his weekend...

2011-08-20T11:48:23.729-07:00

Hi there,Encore here. Mom is letting me write, since I was getting jealous of all the other famous dogs getting there own internet time.This week has had tons of outside play for my mom and dad. Usually, they just let me out to play with the dog next door but I guess they were getting jealous of my time so they decided to join. Mom doesn't last as long as dad though. Something about bug bites all



Sneak Peak.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.729-07:00

Here is a little outtake/blooper video of our upcoming Video Blog:How to Make Cake Pops.(sorry for the bad video quality... we are working on this)



Stay Tuned.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.729-07:00

Well I am back! More like my internet is back... these storms are taking over our power and it's starting to get annoying! I have lots of exciting projects I having been working on and will be working on for this blog. Lets just say you are going to get to see a lot more video around here!!! And maybe even get some sneak peaks at one of the biggest events in Nashville (not to mention our house)



Farmers Market.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.729-07:00

Me and My dear Friend Megan, went to the famers market this weekend. I love farmers markets more then anything. Maybe, because they make me think of what street vendors would be like in Europe, but either way I think they are the best.



Good friends and Good food!

2011-08-20T11:48:23.729-07:00

Nothing beats having over a favorite friend and discussing everything from books, clothing, future plans, and boys. All while making the sweetest chocolate strawberries you will ever eat.



The most relaxing weekend.. ever! (and an encore story that will make you scream)

2011-08-20T11:48:23.730-07:00

Hello Loves, I know, I know... where have I been, your thinking! I have to say I loved this past few days. I took a break from blogging, my camera for the most part, the computer, the t.v., facebook and so on. I enjoyed it so much! Sometimes you just have to step away and relax. Which is exactly what I did!I spent the past few days with my nose stuck in books, cooking, and telling stories with my



While I am trying to get out of my lazy mood...

2011-08-20T11:48:23.730-07:00

You can enjoy this lovely picture of my baby, Encore. Ok, I am not being lazy.. I did just clean my whole house to the point of vacuuming my curtains... yes, I am superwoman this week! Then I stuck my noise in a book and can't seem to get out of it long enough to post pictures and blog. However, I am almost done with it so I promise to back tomorrow... if not later tonight.



Why is it that I ALWAYS put the wrong corner of the bedsheets on first?

2011-08-20T11:48:23.730-07:00

Excuse my absence today... I will literally be cleaning my whole house!!!



Mother's Day

2011-08-20T11:48:23.730-07:00

I would like to say Happy Mother's Day to all the Mother's out there but mostly to the two women above. My mother and Guitar Hero's Mother. Two very amazing, caring, loving, classy women. They are two wonderful examples of mothers for me to look up to one day, if we ever decide to to have children and I am proud to have both of them in my life.



Boy or Girl, that is the question?

2011-08-20T11:48:23.730-07:00

I had totally forgotten about this picture from when my sissy visited a few weeks ago. This was while we were shopping in target, we had made our way to the baby/kid section. I love these sections in stores but I always feel weird without a kid or a baby bump thankfully, I had her next to me to able to ewww and awww over all the cute little outfits.This pregnancy of hers has been lots of fun,



Strawberry Fields, Forever...

2011-08-20T11:48:23.730-07:00

Yay, for sunny days! Since the weather is actually starting to dry up me and Guitar Hero decided to take advantage of it by picking strawberries today. Did you know strawberries are my favorite fruit? Well, they are, I tell ya!Now, we have lots of juicy, big strawberries to use in many recipes. We are thinking... smoothies, chocolate covered strawberries, and just cut up on salads. I am so



Never say never...

2011-08-20T11:48:23.731-07:00

last week during the horrible storms the south faced we were trapped indoors, in fear of a tornado passing thru. So, to keep our minds of it, me and Guitar Hero opened up a puzzle he had gotten for Christmas. The rule was, if we opened it up we had to finish it that day. Now, I don't know about you but I have never finished a huge puzzle in day... to me that was just crazy. And since I decided to



Not the weekend I planned for...

2011-08-20T11:48:23.731-07:00

Over the weekend a lot of things happened. Things you are never really ready for..On Saturday, I got a phone call from my dad saying our family cat of 19years was put down. It was something we all knew was coming soon but you never want to think about. She was very much loved and spoiled so it helped knowing her life was a good life but it will be weird not seeing her when I visit my parents. RIP



Have a fairytale weekend...

2011-08-20T11:48:23.731-07:00

Due to the Royal Wedding which I sadly could not attend because my invitation got lost somewhere in the mail (It's ok William and Kate, I forgive you). I still decided to attend on my couch. I had said before that I do not follow the Royal couple, nor do I know anything about them but that changed over the last week when that became the only thing to watch on T.V. and like most of the 2 billion



All in the clothes...

2011-08-20T11:48:23.731-07:00

The other day while hanging out with friends, I somehow got talked into playing a dance game. Trust me when I say, I tried everything in my power to get out of it, but nothing worked. I even gave them the excuses that I was not dressed to dance... which lead to the outfit below. However, I will admit, it did bring out my gangsta style groves! Who would have imaged clothes made such a difference.(



Scenes from Hillsboro Village.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.731-07:00

(nothing beats a cat in a shop window)



Boscos

2011-08-20T11:48:23.731-07:00

Over the weekend me and Guitar Hero took a little break together to have lunch/dinner at Bosco's and while they are known for their beer (which neither of us drink) they actually have some very delicious food, too. I am still dreaming about their garlic parmesan cheese fries.



A wonderful weekend was had by all.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.732-07:00

While I didn't get to spend as much time with Guitar Hero as I would have liked, I still had a wonderful weekend. There was egg dying, photography lessons, dance offs, cookouts, cake pop overload, and unexpected gifts. I love this city and all it has offered me. The people I have met and the things I get to do have been a blessing. I am so very happy.Hope you all had a wonderful Easter!



Dear Starbucks, I think you may have just met your match!...

2011-08-20T11:48:23.732-07:00

Tuesday night, I got together with some of my favorite ladies, which I do every month for girls night. We usually just do dinner and movie and catch up with everyones life. This month we decided to switch things up and do a baking night... and what else better to bake then cake pops, right?!It was super easy and fun. Everyone can do this and there are so many other fun things you can do with cake



Why I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with him...

2011-08-20T11:48:23.732-07:00

Because seeing how he is with my nephew makes my heart melt.I know we talk about maybe not having kids sometimesbut every time I see him with ConnerIt makes me see what a wonderful dad he would be and how amazing it would be to start a family with him.(P.S. don't you love how Conner is stepping on his foot to get his Uncle Guitar Hero's attention?)



Sissy and me {and conner too}

2011-08-20T11:48:23.732-07:00

Conner was a little camera shy, plus he just wanted down to play near the water {of course we would never let that happen}. These are just a few more pictures of my sister and me. Told you we took a lot more pictures. I just get camera happy when they are in town.



Pregnant women love cupcakes...

2011-08-20T11:48:23.732-07:00

While my sissy was in town, I had to take her to Nashville's famous Gigi's cupcakes and let me tell you... she LOVED it! Thought she was going to buy the whole store.



The one where my pregnant sister out did me!

2011-08-20T11:48:23.732-07:00

This may be a tad bit hard for you to believe but... my PREGNANT sister is obviously more skilled then me when it comes to jumping. It took her one time.. yes, one time to get the perfect jump shot above. For me it took, 4 (or at least 4 I am willing to share haha) O, man I need to work on my skills.



A glimpse into my weekend (many more pictures to come)

2011-08-20T11:48:23.733-07:00

I wish, I wish, I wish.. I feel like every time family visits I wish they lived closer. I love all my family so much that it hurts they all live so far away. But it does make each time they visit extra special.This weekend, my sissy, her husband, my little rockstar conner, and the bun in the oven all came to visit me. It was more wonderful then ever. We ate cupcakes, and laughed, and played, and



When I am feeling low..

2011-08-20T11:48:23.733-07:00

Sometimes he surprises me with slushies!{and for those few minutes I forget that my sissy just left.. only for a few minutes though}



Have a super, fantastic, awesome weekend!

2011-08-20T11:48:23.733-07:00

The storms I guess decided never to show (I am more then ok with this) but the wind is sure crazy outside, that's for sure. Guitar Hero took me to Panera Bread for lunch then we walked around a bookstore for a bit so he could get some coffee and relax before playing non stop music all weekend. I am still anxiously awaiting for my sissy's arrival for this evening (see post below) I already have a



Don't rain on my parade!

2011-08-20T11:48:23.733-07:00

Yes, another stormy day here in Nashville. Calling for more severe thunderstorms in a few hours, which I am sure will lead to more tornado warnings. I am not letting that get me down though. I have Guitar Hero here, which makes things 1000 times better but even more then that... my sissy, her husband, and of course my little rockstar are coming into town tonight. I am beyond thrilled. Now, only



The improv dinner party.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.733-07:00

Last night, I thought I would surprise Guitar Hero with an improv dinner party. And I do mean improve! Over the past week, Guitar Hero has been swarmed with work, which is great but learning 100 new songs in one week is a lot for anyone and he deserved a break. Since he has been cooped up not able to enjoy the lovely weather we have been having, I decided to have a little outdoor dinner party. We



His fortune cookies are always more exciting then mine..

2011-08-20T11:48:23.734-07:00

Chinese anyone? I love me some crab rangoon. So delicious, I'm starting to crave some more just talking about it.Last night we went out for a little chinese date and ended up with a throwback mountain due, which was very tasty. Fortune cookies that always turn out the same... he gets the good one, i get a boring one (starting to wonder what that means) and of course just great company of them



Date Night

2011-08-20T11:48:23.734-07:00

After a full day of severe thunderstorms and tornado warnings, guitar hero was sweet enough to take me out for some appetizers and dessert at Mimi's Cafe. It was a nice way to end a not so fun day. What a great man I have.



Going out in my red lipstick, after soaking up some sun rays!

2011-08-20T11:48:23.734-07:00

The beginning of weekend was spent with me, the book, a dog, and two cats. Which was nice but still always better to have the Guitar Hero home. I spent most of my time outside, catching some sun rays, and throwing the ball to the dog. In the evenings, I watched you've got mail... a lot! I can never watch that movie too many times. I love it so much.Sunday, Guitar Hero was home so we spent it



80 degree weather, I almost forgot what you felt like.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.734-07:00

This weekend is going to be full of outside time (if it doesn't storm), puppy play, birthday parties (not ours), good food, and lots of happiness... looking forward to it!Hope you all enjoy your weekend, too!



recap, of my weekend {a few days late}

2011-08-20T11:48:23.735-07:00

My mom came to visit me, which was by far the highlight of my weekend. But here are a few other things that made it great....1. Encore, showing off in the pond {which he knows, is a no no}2. The color of orange in my front yard3. The pretty lilac tree blooming next to our house4. My awesome new sunglass, with a rockstar bow on the side5. Spending part of our afternoon in the kids book section 6.



Q&A {Part 3}

2011-08-20T11:48:23.735-07:00

Sorry, these are kind of out of focus... I miss my old video camera. Hope you all had a great weekend! Here are the answers to your questions. If you would like to see old post on Q&A click here and here.

Pictures taken from last week.Looking forward to some pretty weather and mom time :)



because sometimes it needs to be all about him....

2011-08-20T11:48:23.735-07:00

A. These pictures did not come out as good as I hoped.B. Guitar Hero is not mad (even though it appears that way) he was just blinded by the flash. I still love it, he looks peaceful.C. We (meaning he) had dinner at one of his favorite mexican restaurants last night. I am not a fan of mexican but because he means so much to me I let him take me there. Where he ate, and I talked... a lot! Mostly



Why the neighbors are probably laughing at us, behind closed doors.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.735-07:00

This is what it looks like now, when I try to carry Encore in the house. He is pretty good about coming in when we ask him to, expect when he knows we are about to leave. So, what you see above is what I look like carrying him in. I assure you I am not hurting him (if anything he is hurting me). It seems like only yesterday I was holding him here and here. I miss though's days but I sure do love



Guilty as charged!

2011-08-20T11:48:23.736-07:00

Plain and Simple, I'm addicted! That's right, cake pops are my new favorite thing (and maybe even a bribe from Guitar Hero to get me out of the house faster so, we could make it a show on time, smart man) If you have not tried this, I highly recommend it. They have 3 types at Starbucks but the Birthday Cake is my favorite.P.S. Guitar Hero was not driving while taking these pictures. We were



BANGS!

2011-08-20T11:48:23.736-07:00

Why is it, whenever I finally grow you out I begin to miss you and reconsider your return?It's starting to become frustrating.Readers, Lately quite a few of you have been requesting I do another Q&A video. If there is anything you would like to ask, leave it in the comment section below and I will consider doing another one. (Either way I promise to answer your questions, rather video or post)(






Lovely, Sunday!

2011-08-20T11:48:23.736-07:00

Today my hunky Guitar Hero came home and to top it off I finally got to try a cake pop. It was even better then I imagined and it might even be my new favorite dessert. Shh... don't tell cupcake.Yes, it is a lovely sunday, indeed.



Happy Weekend!

2011-08-20T11:48:23.736-07:00

Here is a little video I made of our spring adventures outside this week.What beautiful weather we have been having.Hope you enjoy it and hope it inspires you to get out and enjoy the weather, too (if you can)Have a wonderful weekend!Dear Guitar Hero, this video is for you and your love of spring!



Sun Rise.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.737-07:00

Have you ever watched the sun rise? I can't remember the last time I had, up until yesterday that is. I forgot how peaceful it can be. Within though's few minutes of me and Guitar Hero sitting by the lake alone, while everyone was just getting up and heading to work, I felt so very thankful for the world around me. The beauty is indescribable as the sun started to peak up over the trees and turn



Encore, what have you done now? {part 2}

2011-08-20T11:48:23.737-07:00

Sneaky, Encore got out of the house the other day with one of daddy's shoes (yes, we are one of those couples that refer to each other as mom and dad to our pets, judge us if you want but they are our babies). Not to mention it was one of his best pair of shoes. Encore, takes after me with his expensive taste.Thankfully, I got him to release it with a little bribing (thank goodness for treats)



Pretty in Pink.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.737-07:00

Enjoy.



We love you warmer weather and sunny skies!

2011-08-20T11:48:23.737-07:00

Yesterday, I got asked by a dear blogger friend, Cheyenne, on some date ideas. Other than your typical movie and dinner night at home (which we are guilty of more then I let on in this blog). It's hard thinking outside of the box when it comes to date ideas but I do pride myself in trying. And today I would like to share some ideas with you of things we enjoy doing...Picnic's - they are easy,



Welcome, Spring!

2011-08-20T11:48:23.737-07:00

I heard somewhere, that today was spring! How exciting, even more exciting that Guitar Hero came home this afternoon, just in time to enjoy some of this beautiful weather we have been having.We went for a lovely drive, WITH THE WINDOWS DOWN! We found the perfect spot to have picnic tomorrow, which I am thrilled about. And to top it all of we found some pretty blooming trees for a photo



Encore, plays ball!

2011-08-20T11:48:23.738-07:00

Pretty much like the title say's. Encore, got lots of playtime yesterday and I got lots of pictures. Maybe a little too many but I can't help but snap tons of my baby boy... he is just so good looking!



Just a bunch of silliness really...

2011-08-20T11:48:23.738-07:00

Here we are Saturday morning before taking my Aunt to Loveless cafe for some famous biscuits. We wanted to show her one of our favorite bridges and prettiest views in Nashville (well, pretty when the trees are in full bloom) She was nice enough to take some pictures of Guitar hero and me. And Guitar Hero was nice enough to make all the pictures different (also known as goofing off) by the last



Greatful.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.738-07:00

This post is way past due: But here are two pieces of art work that people have made for me and Guitar Hero.The one on the left was made by a very talented girl. Who I have seem to lost her info and feel terrible about. If you are reading this please contact me so I can give you the credit you deserve.The one of the left was made by my bother's beautiful girlfriend. And it meant so much to us



The Opry {backstage}

2011-08-20T11:48:23.738-07:00

Over the weekend my Aunt BB came to visit. We love having her in town, she is beyond fun and always so happy. I especially love having her in town this week because we got to take her backstage to the Grand Ole Opry Friday night to watch Guitar Hero play with Josh Turner. And if that was not enough, Kenny Rogers was there to preform too. Which is one of her favorites. She almost had tears the



Dear Encore, What have you done now?! (plus weekend recap)

2011-08-20T11:48:23.738-07:00

This weekend was the best. It include: Guitar Hero, Family, Elvis sightings, Backstage at the opry, legends, famous biscuits, beautiful weather, funny cats, brownies before bed, smoothies for breakfast, broadway music, guitar hero rocking out on the guitar, an amazing church service, our favorite nashville restaurants, and lots and lots of laughter. O, and of course the pup who decided he didn't



The dog thinks he is a cat.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.738-07:00

This is Encore's new favorite sleeping spot as of a week ago, the same sleeping spot as our cats. Hmmm... I wonder if he happens to notice the HUGE difference in his SIZE!



Another food post...

2011-08-20T11:48:23.738-07:00

I am not much for cooking in our house. In fact we eat out sometimes 2 times a day just because I don't cook or even buy food for our house. This year, I wanted to change that. Over the past 7 days I have cooked 5 times and I am very proud of myself. One of our favorites things I cooked though, was this delicious margarita pizza. I can not even begin to tell you how yummy it was, other then the



White Chocolate Strawberries.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.739-07:00

I am well aware that my Strawberries did not come out looking the prettiest but I was doing it by myself and stirring chocolate and dipping strawberries at the same time is not an easy task. And when all is said and done it still taste the same.This was the first time I have ever made white chocolate strawberries, I usually just do plain chocolate. I thought it would be more delicious then



My little boy, isn't so little anymore.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.739-07:00

This is our baby (or big boy) Encore, posing for us. He is such a poser, especially if he thinks he will get something out of it. Isn't he so handsome though? And to imagine he has a lot more growing left to do....



days like yesterday are my favorite.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.739-07:00

Guitar Hero and me actually got to just enjoy each others company without feeling the pressure of getting anything done... which was nice change of pace. Our day was spent listening to old records, cuddling on the couch and taking naps, playing with Encore and the cats, followed by a home cooked meal. Which is usually only fajitas in this house. It's a Guitar Hero favorite, thank goodness too



Inspired.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.739-07:00

Recently, I have been very inspired going thru some of my old pictures and blogpost. So much that I have been itching to do more and take lots more pictures. I guess that is a good thing though, since I have been very uninspired lately.Unfortunately right when my inspiration kicked in so did tornado weather. Thursday evening my neighborhood got hit pretty hard. Some say it was a tornado others



what we have been doing.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.739-07:00

There seems to be a lot of questions why I am not blogging and for some reason almost everyone who ask seems to think it has to do with Guitar Hero and me... no matter how many times I have said it doesn't. So here it is, what we have been doing...Guitar Hero is working on lots of projects that have him working up to 12hrs in one day sometimes. Which leaves little time for us to do anything but



Me and Guitar Hero.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.739-07:00

I really do not know how to start this but here goes nothing....Me and Guitar hero are wonderful... more then wonderful! Yes, I have been away a lot but this has nothing to do with me and Guitar Hero. I have said before he is busy. It's hard to explain because not living in the everyday music world you would not understand a lot of things he is doing if I told you (not trying to sound mean). I am



The Factory.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.740-07:00

Here are some pictures I captured while me and Guitar Hero were at the factory. It's at the same place where you can find this.I highly recommend everyone visiting this place if ever in Nashville. It has great food, great shops, and beautiful design. Not to mention an awesome antique mall that holds my dream floor mirror. All around this place gets and A+ in my books.



Two years ago today...

2011-08-20T11:48:23.740-07:00

We took our friendship to another leveland now two years later...We have a dog, 2 cats, a lovely home, many memories, and real love that keep us going.Happy 2 years, Guitar Hero!



Saffire.

2011-08-20T11:48:23.740-07:00

There is just something about Franklin that has captured my heart. It must be the old charm, the unique character, and the one of a kind places that it has to offer. Every time me and Guitar Hero head over that way, I confess to him how much I love it there and dream of living on that side of town. Thankfully, he agrees that it would be amazing area to live but unfortunately it cost and arm and a



Red for Valentines!

2011-08-20T11:48:23.740-07:00




Happy Valentines Day!

2011-08-20T11:48:23.740-07:00

I would just like to say I really, really love this man!(picture taken a few months ago for Christmas from our good friend Robin Baker)



My weekend {in words}

2011-08-20T11:48:23.741-07:00

First and foremost I forgot my camera Guitar Hero was sweet enough to watch Encore for me, so that I could go to KY to visit some friends but most of all my little nephew!There was lots and lots of eating... Red Lobster, Longhorn (yum), Dewey's pizza, and my all time favorite... GRATERS ICE CREAM (it's a Northern KY, OH thing) and no I did not care that it snowed and was below freezing the whole
