Hello, friends. I hope you had a lovely long weekend. It is Thursday here, and we are fully back into the swing of things. It’s amazing how much we look forward to long weekends, and yet how difficult they can be to recover from. We had a great weekend, though.
Mackenzie was out of school on Friday as well as Monday, so I got to have an extra day with my girl, just the two of us. We made a lot of fun memories. On Friday we went to the zoo, the craft store (to buy supplies for Mackenzie’s birthday invitations), and to Chris’s office to bring him coffee and see everyone.
On Saturday Mackenzie and I went to the farmer’s market in the morning and then met Lea at the downtown Nashville Public Library (one of my favorite places) for lunch at Provence Bread.
On Sunday Chris, Mackenzie, and I went to church. (This is a big deal because we missed a lot of weekends over the summer.) The message was titled, “Home.” It really reaffirmed in both Chris’s and my hearts that Nashville is our home, until God says otherwise. It was a great message.
Mackenzie took an incredibly long nap after church, and I tried to work on her birthday invitations. None of my ideas turned out right. Boo.
On Sunday night, Lea watched Mackenzie so Chris and I could go on a date. We went to Virago in the Gulch area of Nashville. It was incredible. Easily the best sushi I have ever had. (Then we went to Opry Mills and saw a movie that I won’t even mention because it was less than amazing.) I DID try chocolate-covered mint Dibs while at the theater, and that was pretty life-changing. 😉
On Monday we relaxed. 🙂 Mackenzie slept all night without a single wake-up (yay, Aunt Lea!!), so we stayed home most of the day because Chris is/was sick with with a cold, but in the late afternoon, we went back to the craft store to return supplies that did not work out and then to the mall to walk around. We went to Build a Bear with Mackenzie for the very first time, and we had a lot of fun putting together a little stuffed horse for her. We are trying to teach her that not all animals say “Moo,” so her new little friend is named, “Ne Ne.”
