Wait for it...

Tanky loves treats... Especially jelly beans. When he gets a treat... we say,"wait... wait..." and he can't eat it until we say "okay". In the meantime, he stares the treat down. (See evidence in pic.) It is the most hilarious thing!

Saturday nap

Great seeing Ann and Tim

Johnny and I had a fabulous lunch at Opry Mills Macaroni's Grill with Ann and Tim on Wednesday.

And yesterday, Ann, Tim and I grabbed breakfast at the Cracker Barrel out by the Opryland Hotel. It was so good catching up and getting to see each other. We're definitely not going to wait eight years to see each other again !

By now, they are safe and sound, back at home in Rapid City.

OMG!!! Ann is in Nashville!!!

I haven't seen one of my best college friends, Ann, in eight years... since we moved to Nashville. But this week, she's in town for the Crossroads Children's Chorus Festival. Shes now a music teacher in Rapid City, SD (for more than 14 years now!) AND she works as Artistic Director with the Rapid City Children's Chorus.

Not only were we friends, RA's and roomates during college at USD, but we were also music majors together, study partners, classmates, choir members and laugh-partners. She took me to the emergency room when I was sick way back in 1989... we've walked on Mt. Rushmore together... I could go on and on and on.

Our lives get in the way of Ann and I talking often... but like Denice, Ann is one of those people. You know... the kind of person that even though you haven't spoken weeks or months... it seems like you just spoke yesterday. I love that.

Ann is truly amazing.
I can't wait to see her... we just confirmed plans to see each other for lunch on Wednesday!!! WHOOOHOOOOOO!
I may need to do some ab work to prepare for all the laughing on we will be doing!
