Ok... so I'm still TOTALLY enjoying the Amy Winehouse album "Back to Black." I'm still ticked off I unknowingly bought the radio edit version...but I'm going to fix that soon...and get the adult version...now that is out of the way :)
I'm still singing "Sweet Charity" songs... and that got me through the remainder of the week... We got an early weekend start on Thursday night...we went out to dinner where our duplex neighbor is the manager...and suprisingly got our meal comp'd... nice, eh?
Friday night was fun... we went to Tin Angel...which is usually good...and was yet again... after I got over the disappointment of my desired entree being sold out :( boo hoo... always frustrating to have something in mind..only for the server to come back with bad news and having to pick something else out.
On Saturday, we went to Centennial Park for the American Artisan Festival. It was really neat... the coolest thing was an artist who repurposes old pinball machines into coffee tables--and other similar pieces of furniture. My favorite was an old Dolly Parton piece...which was already sold at the low price of $3000, gasp. What a great, contemporary idea though!
Sunday was a lazy sleep in morning for me while Hal went with his family to church...I had my annual dose of that a couple of weeks ago.
When he got home, we went to Bistro 215 for brunch... random note here... every time I hear the word Bistro... I think of "Three's Company" and Jack's Bistro... hehehe...
We went to Hal's parents for dinner... Even though we've been together almost 9 years... I'm still relatively new to their gatherings...but I always have a good time. I'm pretty opinionated about politics--including local politics--and it's soooo hard to keep my cool about it... but I managed to do so...perhaps due to the fact I was in the minority??? lol. It was actually only a brief bit of conversation... so that helped...but anyway...it was a good time... it's always funny seeing Hal's dad... they look so much alike... so I have a good idea what he will look like in 25 years.
Anyway...that was my weekend... back to work on Monday... I'm looking forward to the next one... they are having a Red Bull Flugtag event downtown...and I'm pretty sure we will go... if you are in Nashville and think that would be fun... holla!!!
