Elvis and I
I was looking at the last date I posted and it was a week ago today. I really have been a slacker lately. But I really do have a good excuse. I have tried to spend as much time as I can with my daughter while she has been here. We have watched alot of great movies, had alot of wonderful late night talks and also morning coffee chats. We have had several friends over and my other children have been here alot too. We also have gone to a few places too. Its just so wonderful having her here. But it will all come to an end on Tuesday night when we put her back on a plane to Idaho. Its going to take us some time to get use to having a empty house again. I really don't like January,,its always a kind of "let down" month. Holidays are over and its back to work again. Also we don't really have decent weather here either in January. Its usually cloudy, dreary, or cold rain. Every once in a while we will get a little snow but most of the time it misses us. So, I am going to quit whining now and show off some fun that we had the other day when we took Allison to downtown Nashville. It was a nice sunny day and the weather was warm. We went down to the touristy part of downtown, lower Broad. This is where the little souvenir shops are and the little honky tonks where alot of Country musicians have been discovered. Our first stop was to visit with Elvis and have our picture taken with him.
And then,,guess what? We saw him up on the roof of one of the buildings,,along with Santa.
And I had to take a picture of my fave Football team's home. LP Field.
The picture above is of our Riverfront park and the red steel structure across the river next to the stadium is a piece of architectural piece of art that was placed there. Its pretty cool looking too.
Then I had to snap some photos of the Hard Rock Cafe.
We had a really fun afternoon and Allison loved seeing all the sites. I am enjoying my new camera that I got for Christmas too. Its so small and its easy to tote around in my purse.
Well, I am off to visit some blogs and then head to bed. Back to work tomorrow.
I hope every one had a wonderful beginning of a New Year and I promise I will be posting alot more in the up coming weeks.
