Thank Heavens it is FRIDAY


Here is the 2nd wreath I made, hanging from my bed. Maybe a little weird, but o-well:)
I have been counting down the days to FRIDAY because I we have arranged loving hands to care for our boys this weekend so we could take off for Nashville.

Just the two of us...a little "mini moon"!

We are (finally) going to go the Temple. I can not wait! Our first time since we moved here. I am so excited to be there, it has been too long. Going to the Temple always blesses my life with peace and inspiration. Something that is really needed for a Mother of 5 boys!

We will be at the Marriot , close to fun restraunts and shopping! Including William Sanoma, (one of my favorite places), where I will pick up a canister of their famouse Hot Chocolate. It will be the perfect little treat for Brad and I to enjoy in front of the Christmas tree, when all our boys are in bed! Mmmm I am telling you that stuff is AMAZING!

And, of course I will be watching for the local country stars:) I am hoping we run into Keith Urban while we are there! When I say that to Brad, he just rolls his eyes. Years ago Brad got a speeding ticket on Black Friday trying to get to the local Kmart to purchase me Keith's latest CD which was on some crazy deal! I am sure he was going for more than just that, but he still blames Mr. Urban! To this day he can't listen to one of his songs without some eyerolling --such a painful memory! It still makes laugh!

Anyway, I hope ya'll have a wonderful weekend!

WOW! That's one of my top 10 places in the world to visit someday! Have so much fun & do keep your eyes peeled for Keith Urban! He's my fav too :) How lucky that you found someone to watch your kids in GA already. Can't wait to read about your trip- take pictures too :)

We were trying to get up there this weekend too...sitters kinda fell through and I'm supposed to be a 5 hour training meeting tomorrow anyways.

If you like pizza, there's a place called Pie In The Sky right around CoolSprings mall. They use all organic toppings, the cheesy bread twist app is INCREDIBLE. Give it a try if you have time. Super YUM. It's a must for us when we go.

Oooh, that sounds like a great weekend. Nashville would be fun to see. I am glad you will be able to enjoy the temple. Is that one closer than Atlanta? By the way, your eggnog bundt cake was a big hit at the ward party. Thinking of you!

I love BOTH the wreaths! You are so creative. I'm glad you are having fun fixing up the house for the holidays. I am really going to miss being with you for Christmas, but I am looking forward to January and coming out to visit. Hope you have a wonderful weekend in Nashville1
XOXOXO

Your wreath is gorgeous! You and mom are so creatively gifted. Your bedroom looks really beautiful too - the little bit I saw! It's still extremely strange to me that I don't even know what your house looks like! Your home has always been a second home to me so it doesn't feel right at all that it is so far away! I hope you had a wonderful time in Nashville - I'm so glad you guys got to do that. That story about Keith Urban and Brad's eye-rolling really made me laugh! I sure love you guys!
