Caroline and I had the extreme pleasure of having a mini girls get-a-way for a night in Nashville to see our beloved Taylor Swift. Caroline got to see her do a small concert in the Bahamas and has loved her ever since. She knows all of the words to at least ten of the songs on her new cd...we are obsessed. Dan woke me up one morning and told me to get tickets, that she was doing a special tornado relief benefit concert. I found the best tickets for the best price on stubhub and Dan got us a hotel room for the night. We left Saturday morning at nine thirty am for a seven thirty pm concert but Caroline was so excited that we could not leave one minute later! We had the absolutely best time. We stopped at the Cool Springs Mall on the way up, went to GiGi's cupcakes and swam in the hotel pool. We later took the hotel trolley to downtown Nashville and walked around and ate a great dinner. Finally, it was concert time!!

Taylor Swift put on one the best if not the best concert that I have ever been too. There was many, many costume changes, fireworks and other special effects, dancers, acrobats, and much, much more. She even got into a "balcony" like structures and swung out over the crowd for one song. What a magical night! It was defintely one I will never forget..........

Beach With Friends

We planned a quick get-away with spome of our best friends, the Jacksons, and headed down to Orange Beach. We left the day that the massive, devastating tornados hit north Alabama so we were so fortunate to be there. We love spending time with the Jacksons and we had beautiful weather the whole trip. Because of the tornados, my mom and dad, Granny, and Kate, Dave and Mills came down also and we had so much fun. Many, many pictures below:

Central Weekday Program

Caroline finished up her very first week of pre-school last week. She and I both have absolutely loved the experience she has had at this sweet school and look forward to next year. They ended the school year with a spring program and Caroline's class sang "The B-I-B-L-E', "I Am Special", and "Deep and Wide." They were too cute....
