All the Holiday Activities

Hi guys!!  Can’t believe it is Monday already!  Do you all have to work today?  Jon has the day off, but I don’t.  Oh that reminds me… I am still working on a post of our new dining room table he made.  He actually just recently made me a new bench for our front porch with the help of his brother and once it is stained I will show you all that too!  It sure is nice having a husband that loves projects and is good at them!

While my sister and her boyfriend were in town, we made sure to fit in as many outings and adventures as possible!  Our family friends, Harry and Jeanne, invited us out to breakfast one morning at Le Peep, but ofcourse I forgot to take a picture.  We also took about 100 walks and trips to the dog park, but it was just too cold to document. 🙂

On Tuesday we all decided to go see the movie  Downsizing. Have any of you guys seen it?  We all thought it was horrible, but hey, we enjoyed the popcorn and comfy recliner seats. 🙂

On Wednesday night, my sister, her boyfriend, Jon and I went out to dinner at Park Cafe and it sure did not disappoint.  We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals, which were devoured before I could take any pictures.  We then headed over to Neighbors for an evening of bar trivia with some friends!  We ended up coming in 2nd place!

On Thursday night, Jon and I had plans with his old boss (from when we lived in Cincinnati) and his wife for dinner.  We suggested Sea Salt and it was soo yummy!  We all got fish dishes and loved them!

Such a fun night!

On Friday night we had dinner plans again (do you see a common theme food with a lot of our activities?).  We met my mom and stepdad at Sperrys for an amazing meal!  Love my momma!

After dinner my friend Rachael came over with her pup, Cooper, for game night!  We played a few games and my mom requested a picture with all the doggies lined up in a row.  This was as close as we got.  🙂

Murphy, my sister and her boyfriend’s puppy used Riley’s old crate while they were at our house.  While we were playing games, we kept noticing Callie sneaking into the crate (probably to hide from the small, crazy dogs who wanted to play with her).  She’s the cutest.

My sister and her boyfriend had plans on Saturday night to attend a wedding so I opted for a girls night with my bestie, Lissa.  We decided on Tavern for dinner and got a seat where we could watch the Predators game too!

Jon’s brother, Ryan, came to town for the game.  They had a blast!

I should have titled this blog post “the most times dining out in one week.” 🙂  Sunday around lunchtime we headed to the Gulch for brunch at Biscuit Love before the Titans game. We all really loved our meals!  This place is a must if you are in the area!

After brunch we headed downtown to see the Titans play!  Thankfully we were able to snag tickets in a suite through my husband’s work.  Otherwise, I think I would have been watching from my couch.  I couldn’t believe how many people sat out in the freezing cold to watch the game.  I enjoy a good sporting event, but I don’t like any sport THAT much. 😉

Lots and lots of games were played throughout the holidays.  Notice Otis’ eyes in the first picture and then the second picture.  And….he’s out! 🙂 

We had a few ideas for plans on NYE, but after the Titans game, we were all wiped!  We headed to bed early for a good night’s rest.  My sister, her boyfriend, and their pups hit the road bright and early for their long drive back to Dallas.  Jon and I spent New Year’s day cleaning the house, organizing, and cooking before deciding to head to the mall for Dillard’s New Year’s Day sale.  We really love this sale and try to stock up each year.  I got a few things, but my husband really cleaned up.  He got 2 new suits, 6 pairs of pants and 4 new shirts!  It was a major deal!  He really needed a new suit after I put his nice one through the wash a while ago and ruined it.  Whoops. 🙂 

There was one more activity we did over the holidays, but that deserves it’s own post so that will be up soon!  I hope you all really enjoyed the holidays this year too!  We sure did!  I was tired from all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, but I certainly had a case of the post holiday blues when they were over.  Until next year!
