Our plate was a little light this month as we prepare
for our big trip to Japan next month!!
|Fitz and the acoustic Tantrums|
Sunday, 3/5 - It continued to be an acoustic weekend as tonight we headed over to East Nashville to catch one of our favorite local singer/songwriters, Will Hoge, at The Basement East in a program called Four in the Floor, an intimate in-the-round performance by four different musicians. Besides Will, we saw veteran troubadour, David Olney; rising country-singer/songwriter, Jaida Dreyer; and a very impressive performance of the young, raw talent of Tyler Childers (this guy's going somewhere, folks). This was our first time at this relatively new venue as well and we liked it a lot. We hope to return ASAP.
|See Will Hoge's back, but listen to Will's amazing voice and songwriting talent!|
|From the library we walked a few more blocks to 5th and Church to check out one of the subjects of the "Hiding in Plain Sight" - the First Presbyterian Church which happens to be open on Mondays for self-tours and we were able to check out its amazing stain glass windows and Egyptian-style interior design.|
|Next stop was the Antique Archaeology store which was open today over in Marathon Village which we had been to a few days earlier this month. We also checked out the new (and very nice) Jack Daniels General Store also in the complex.|
|Thursday, 3/16 - Check out our newly redone wood floors! And our new spring wreath! Thanks to Ashlee for spending most of her bonus from work this year to get our nappy dining room and living room wood floors redone. They look amazing!|
Sunday, 3/19 - We saw a show by the legendary Steve Martin (with the talented Steep Canyon Rangers) and the hilarious Martin Short at the Grand Ole Opry tonight with our friends, Nate and Ginny. The show was wonderful and we wish it could have went on longer. So many laughs, so much good music, and special guests like Jerry Douglas and his dobro, made this a great event. Thanks to Ashlee for procuring the great seats we had as well!
Monday, 3/20 - It was a day off from work today for me, but that doesn't mean I wasn't working. With Ashlee's help, we got our new fire-pit put together and arranged using wood seats from our old maple tree. The 80-degree weather made it seem like we were too late to use it, but we figure even with this being the first day of spring, we will still get a few chilly nights before long to fire it up.
|Friday, 3/24 - Well, that didn't take long! It was cool and dry enough to fire up the new fire pit tonight along with a couple bottles of wine and some tasty s'mores.|
