So they say its your Birthday!?!

So today was my (Isaac) birthday! YAY! Thanks to all who wished me a happy birthday via email, myspace, and facebook...thank you all!
All in all it was a very good day. Work went by really fast, though I wish I could have just stayed home in the first place but it did go by really fast. I got some money in the mail from the parents (all included), got some great music from Amy, and a grrreat meal.

The music Amy got me were some CDs that I have been wanting...the new Shins album Wincing The Night Away, the newest Decemberists album The Crane Wife, and one she improvised on The Killers Sam's Town. All great choices, now I just have to decided where to start...that's always the hardest part!

For dinner we went to this family style country cooking restaurant named Monell's. The restaurant itself is located in the old jail house in Franklin right nest to downtown. The building was incredible! What is unique about the place, other than it being in a restored jail house, is that you sit at big table no matter the number of your party and they serve everything in big bowls and you pass it all around like a big family dinner.

At this point in the picture our server had picked up our plates and most of the food bowls. But man that table was loaded with food and it was unbelievable.

(All the pictures are from the Monell's.)
So it was a great night of wonderful country cooking, great fellowship with close friends, and great laughs. We ended it all with a great hot drink from the always great Starbuck's!

Now I am off to pack for my work trip to Columbus, OH! That'll be fun, especially if the inches of snow that are forecasted are actually on the ground when we're ready to start driving in the morning...yikes!

First ...The Introduction

Well here we are embarking on a new technological journey via the fabulous world wide web.
We have decided to start up an official blog for ourselves and so far it's been fun trying to get it all together before a post. Well it's not all together yet...but it's getting there.

Under our profile section is the "Books" section. These are books that we are reading and/or are our favorites. The first four are Amy's picks and the last four are my picks.

Then I listed a few of our favorite musical artists. To be honest those are mostly my choices so I'll have to get Amy to add a few of her own. Don't get me wrong, she does like those artists, maybe just not as much as I do. But, again, that list will be altered through and through. As will the book section

Then I put up a few of our favorite movies. We could watch any one of those movies any time. And yes that goes for Amy too (maybe not so much for Bottle Rocket).

Anyway...here it all is and we hope that this is fun for you everyone reading as I hope it is for us!

Oh! So we went on this great hiking trip to Pickett State Park near Jamestown, TN this weekend and it was awesome! These are our friends Wendy and Gabe next to myself and Amy.

I will have to add some more pictures at some point later. I'm still working on our template and learning some more of HTML code. YIKES!
