My sweet, young hearted, handsome husband turned a very old  mature 28 last week.  I just cannot believe he will be the big 3-0 in two years!  Where did the time go??  George had just turned 22 when we first met, and it is so hard to believe that was 6 whole years ago.  I like to tease him because he will always be a year and a half older than me.. no changing that!

Anyways, I, of course, had to work the night of his big day, so we opted to celebrate throughout the weekend.  And it was such a wonderful weekend.  Between the Braves season starting back and the Masters, George's birthday could not be at a more appropriate time of the year.  Friday night, we dined at Tin Angel in Nashville, and it was very delicious.  We had a reservation and our table was right next to a TV which we had changed to the Braves home opener.  Could not have been more perfect.

Dinner at Tin Angel

Saturday,  George and I  ran some errands which included birthday shopping and an attempt at gardening.  I have been wanting to get some flower boxes for our balcony so I finally went and bought 2 flower boxes, white petunias, and soil.  Well, the flower boxes do not fit the rail on our balcony... so, now the flowers are still (5 days later) sitting on the porch in their little containers.  We returned the flower boxes in hopes to find some that would fit the rail.  No luck.  Our neighbors have some, so I finally asked them where to find them.  Well, after all that, turns out you have to buy something else to hang them with in order for the boxes to the fit the rail.  Oh how I wish that George and I had a little more common sense were a little more handy.  :)  Anyways, as soon as I get the flower boxes up and planted, I hope to post some pictures.  George thinks the flowers are going to die before I even get them up.  We will see.  Oh, and he has never heard of the term 'green thumb'.. seriously??

I think last Saturday night was one of my favorite nights that George and I have had here in Nashville.  We decided to use the grilling basket that George's parents got him for his B-day and grilled BBQ chicken and vegetables at the pool.

It was a beautiful night, and it was so wonderful.  After we ate a delicious meal, we lounged on the chairs, listened to the little kids playing in the hot tub, and talked about the stars.  Seriously.  It was perfect.

Taking a Snooze
George's birthday weekend would not have been complete without ice cream, so we went to Sweet Cece's afterwards and had some frozen yogurt.  

Sunday, the last day of George's long birthday weekend, we spent at the pool.  I was determined to get rid of my paleness but we also wanted to watch the final day of the Masters, so we ventured up to the pool/cabana and did a little of both!  Our pool is so great because it has a cabana that has couches, a long table and chairs, and a huge flat screen. It is truly like a resort!  George really wanted to have a special drink to watch the Masters so I made a drink that I made for the 4th of July last year.  

We spent the day with our good friends, Kelci and Anthony, at the pool and then headed back to our place to watch the end of the very exciting Masters!

What a perfect weekend!!
Happy Birthday to the man I adore.  I love you more and more each day.
