Friday night Brian and I dropped the kiddos off at Uncle Michael and Aunt Liz's house and headed to Nashville. All alone. :) We had a great restaurant recommendation from a friend, but ultimately decided we weren't cool enough to go in the door. I had also looked up a Thai restaurant that had great reviews from Urban Spoon, but when we got there it was a complete hole in the wall, and we completely chickened out. We ended up at our newest favorite haunt, P.F. Changs and had a wonderful dinner. Next up was a walk in Centennial Park. The weather was just amazing, and it was a great evening for a walk.
After getting stuck in Friday night downtown traffic, we parked a gazillion blocks away from the concert, and made it to our seats with about 1 minute to spare. It was such a fun concert: Lindsey McCall, The Afters, Sanctus Real, and Casting Crowns. I have lots of thoughts about the concert that maybe I'll share at a later date. The lyrics from Casting Crown songs have always been so meaningful, but when you've got cancer, everything seems to have even more meaning.
Even though it was about 11 degrees at the concert, we decided ice cream was definitely in order for the way home. My new favorite ice cream spot is Pinkberry. Not only were they completely gracious when we walked in the door at 10:56 p.m. but the frozen yogurt was amazing. Made from all natural ingredients, no preservatives, full of probiotics, and about 110 calories and 1.5 grams of fat. Definitely my new favorite place.
I did take my camera with me, but did not end up taking too many pictures because I hadn't emptied my card from a photo session I had earlier in the day.
Bad angle, but it was the best I could do one handed

You can imagine how excited he was to have his picture taken.
Not bad for another one-handed shot.
Yes, this would be what my stellar photography skills got me at the concert.
We had a lovely time. It's been a long time since we've not only had date night, but that I felt well enough to really enjoy it.
This morning I head back to the doctor's office to start Round #2 of my new chemo treatment. I am not concerned about the treatment itself, but I do find myself very nervous about the results of my CA125 test. This will be the first time they've tested since the new drug started, and I am fervently praying that this new drug is working.
