It's Monday morning....yuk. I'm at my desk at work waiting for the day to begin. Thankfully I have a great week to look forward to! Scott and Kelly McGlasson, Jason's sister and husband, are coming into town tomorrow to stay with us for a week!! We're really excited to have them here and hang out. We've been finishing a few things around the apartment, like painting a mirror that Billy and Bettie had given us and replacing some lamp shades to a couple lamps they also had given us. We've got some great things planned as well - we're thinking of taking them out to a park in Franklin where they're having an outdoor movie, then of course Mortons for dinner one night, and the Loveless Cafe for brunch, hopefully see Pirates of the Carribean, and drive them around near Liepers Fork & East Nashville to see some of the great houses ;-) . Oh and Jason mentioned maybe going to the Opry hotel for a tour. So much to do, so little time....
So let me fill you in on the last week. Last Tuesday, Jason had his back-to-back championship softball games. I was SUPPOSED to be at the first one, but we had to take seperate cars so I could go home and change after work. And then of course I had to get lost... or a scenic tour as I like to call it. So I finally showed up as the first game was ending, which was fine, cause they won and Jason didn't end up playing cause he was late too, from getting stuck behind a train. The second game was thier championship game and they won! We had a great time and Jason was hitting awesome! He almost had a home run, but it bounced off the back fence. Oh and I have to mention, the team was started by our friend Danny Johnston, who used to play for the Yankees, and they named the team after him - The Swinging Johnstons...Yeah, I know. I had a really great time hanging out with the girls at the game. Cheryl Johnston and Farrah were there along with Cindy. And we had a blast chatting it up and laughing a ton. We want T-shirts made for us next year that say, "We love our Swinging Johnstons" hee hee.
Then on Friday after work I surprised Jason by showing up at his work to say hello. It marked our half-aversary. :-) The girls at his work thought it was cute that I came by to say Happy Half-aversary, and we all got to chat for a bit before people started coming in.
On Saturday I got my hair cut & highlighted - which turned out great, but a definate change! I'll have to take some pictures so you can see what it looks like. It's quite a bit shorter, but Jason really loves it. Afterward, we did a little shopping and then invited my friend Kelley Skiles over for dinner. She's a friend of mine that hosted me back in Master's Commission almost 10 years ago while I was in Dallas on tour. And now that she's moved to Nashville for her job, we've gotten together a couple times. Jason made burgers for dinner and we looked through pictures and showed her our wedding video. It was really fun to just hang out and have her over.
And finally Sunday, we went back to visit Belmont Church. It was ok, there was a guest speaker who was pretty good, but we're still trying to decide if its where we want to stay. I think next Sunday we'll visit another church to expand our options a little more. Then after church I met up with a bunch of the girls from Jason's work who invited me to join them for brunch at Cafe Margo's. This cafe is in this great, old house in East Nashville and I absolutely loved the food, it was so delicious. There was five of us girls that were there and it was a great opportunity for me to get to know them better. There's one girl in particular that I really like, her name's Sarah and I hope to hang out with her again. Jason started writing with her boyfriend Chris, who is a fabulous singer and songwriter and I'm excited to hear what they're new song sounds like. After brunch, Sarah took me home and we swapped phone numbers, so hopefully we'll get together soon.
I think that's about it for this week to fill you in on. Everything is going great for us and Jason is getting 3 nights off a week now, which has been great for us to still have time together. He'll be taking a little more time off while Scott & Kelley are in town this week, which will be so fun for us all to hang out and do some of the fun things we've got planned. So for all you family out there, just know that when you come to visit us, you can be assured we're going to show you a good time...wink, wink :-)
That's it for now. I should get back to work, things are soon to pick up. I love and miss you all & look forward to seeing you all in August/September!!
