My heart has been stolen by Nashville. There's something about that city that just... gets me. Faith and I went there on Wednesday to get a glimpse of the rich and famous. While we were there, we also went everywhere, from Franklin to Opryland to Vanderbuilt to Green Hills to Downtown back to Franklin. It was the most fabulous time of my life. I had wonderful chances to play with my camera and discover all of its marvelous and fun settings. The only time it let me down was when we were actually at the red carpet for the CMAs, and that's understandable given that the lights were all funky.
I've never been to Opryland and it was gorgeous. I want to go back next month to see their Christmas Spectacular up close. And let me just say- that thing is huge. I thought Disney World resorts were huge... and the Grand Floridian is huge. But you'd never expect Opryland to be so... huge. Well, I didn't, at least. It was so so so so gorgeous in there.
We went to Greece. I mean, Centennial Park. The Parthenon was gorgeous and the perfect opportunity for playtime. Faith and I got some hilarious pictures such as this.. ok apparently my computer does not want to cooperate. Which leads me to Green Hills.
I. love. this. place. We went to the mall there which I love and adore. I wanted to go to the Apple Store to play with a Mac because I'm seriously going to buy a Macbook Pro in the next couple months (and yes, there is one in Huntsville, but I could mess with salespeople I'd never see again.) I've had enough with the crappy PC I have. There's no love between us anymore. We're like lovers who've lost their flame and realized that we're not meant to be together. I digress. I'm sure y'all don't want to hear about my horrible relationship with my Toshiba. So as I said, I played with a Macbook Pro, fell in love, and realized I don't have any patience in me when it comes to waiting for toys like this. I realized then that no matter how hard I try to deny that I am not like my father, I am. Depressing thought. We both love the thrill of the hunt, of having a new toy to play with that costs more than an arm and a leg... until I realized that while my dreams are possible, they aren't around in a quick snap. Again, I digress!!!! I'm a little ADD today.
Anyway. So we finished there at Apple and then attacked Cheesecake Factory. No trip to Nashville should ever go without a trip to Cheesecake Factory- or Whole Foods. And then we ventured downtown... but that's post for another time.
I seriously need to put down the p.o.s. before I throw it across the room to never have a computer again. At least until I can afford my Mac. In the meantime, this will just have to be my background.
