Billy's Birthday Karaoke Super Jam

The weekend after Billy B.'s birthday, we had a night out on the town with a few friends.  We ate at the new Puckett's in downtown Nashville and then headed to a glorious Karaoke bar called...wait for it....Wanna Be's.  And yes.  We are.



Kyle and Shana were in town for the weekend from Indy and were able to join us!

Does Giselle have this problem?

My husband has a knack for taking extremely unflattering pictures of me.  I know I can be critical of myself, but seriously.  I look really terrible in about 90% of the pictures he takes.  We're going to counseling about it.  Don't worry.  The other night, Billy had the camera out and so I was laughing and talking about this issue with our friends.  This was my impression of myself in the pictures Billy takes of me.  Scroll down and you'll see that it's pretty accurate.

Triple chin?  Check.  Eating something?  Check.  Mouth in strange position?  Check.

LOL.  Examine the evidence.

Happy Snow Week!?

By the standards of many states in the U.S., Nashville had a little snow earlier this week. Flurries, some would say.  3 inches to be exact. However, by Nashville standards, it was "Snowpocalypse 2011".  Businesses and restaurants including national chains closed down.  Events all over town were cancelled.  School was cancelled not one, not two...but FIVE days!  Normally, this teacher would not complain about snow days...but when it's sunny out and there's not a spec of ice or snow to be found on the roads, it seems a little ridiculous.  We have kids to educate, people!

To be fair, there were reportedly many roads that were impassible by school buses.  I did not see any such road, but o.k.  I'll take your word for it Metro Nashville Public Schools.  This means, to date, we have used a total of 7.5 snow days.  3 days over our limit.  So...I've quit cheering on the snow and praying blessings over weather.com.  I  now see each snow day as a summer day stealer.  Not cool.  Yes...I said stealer.  It could be a word.  LOL.

Here are Billy and I risking our lives by getting out on those treacherous roads and eating lunch at Mas Tacos.  You may remember me mentioning the Mas Tacos cart that we used to visit often.  Now, they have their own little restaurant in East Nashville.  Everything is so colorful and cute...I had to document.  Not to mention the food is all natural, locally grown and delicioso.  Where else can you get a quinoa & sweet potato taco?!













No snow day is complete without a little trip to Sweet Cece's.  I'm obsessed.

This is my adorable 19 month nephew, Remy, breakin' down.  I've watched it about 96 times and it still makes me laugh really hard.  Where did he learn these moves?!

Happy New Jeerz

We rang in 2011 in Nashville at the Chaffer house with some great old friends, great new friends, amazing fireworks, hilarious games, and buffalo chicken dip.  Our KC...soon to be Nashville...friends Micah and Leslie came in town just in time to join us.  Props to Billy B. for taking most of the photos!
