Well, Christmas may be over but my vacation is NOT. I still have another five days in the Magic City! Can you believe that?

It's been a whirlwind week. I was an errand-running machine on my first day off. I was able to get a lot of things done, from Christmas shopping to vehicle emissions testing. That evening, I had a yummy potluck dinner with five of my sorority sisters who either live in Nashville or were in town for the holidays. It was SO fun to catch up with them and hear about their lives.

I was originally planning to drive south on Tuesday until Mom told me she bought last-minute tickets to see the Rockettes in Nashville. So she and her best friend plus her daughter all got to town Tuesday after lunch. I pointed them toward downtown so I could continue packing, but we all had dinner at Germantown Cafe before their show.

Wednesday morning, Mom and I headed to Birmingham! We drove straight to Brookwood Mall to have lunch with my sister. We were feeling so brave after that, we even headed to WalMart later!

On Thursday, I slept in, which comes naturally to me in Birmingham, and listened to the rain and storms pass by before going over to my sister's house to see all the cute things she got at her baby shower a few weekends ago! Baby G already has a bigger wardrobe than I do... and he's not here yet! I can't wait to see him in all his outfits and playing with all the sweet toys. Later that night, I met my best girl Kathryn for dinner sans babies! Don't get me wrong, babies are great... but every girl needs a night out. We ate ourselves stupid on cheese dip at Superior Grill and had so much fun.

Friday began the Christmas celebrations! Yes, we stretched them out this year!
