Shane’s cousin Emily and our yorkie, Lola. I think the look on her face says “help me!”

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Friday night we tried out Bar Louie
in Overton Square for the first time. The atmosphere was great. They had a huge patio we sat out on, and the weather was just perfect. We had chicken nachos for an appetizer, and I had the fried egg and bacon sandwich for my entree. The sandwich was pretty good, but the nachos were definitely my favorite. We had family from Nashville in town on Saturday, and went to our cousin’s 3rd birthday party. She is too, too cute, and we can’t wait to head to Nashville soon to see them some more. The picture is of his other cousin because the birthday girl, Andrea, wouldn’t sit still long enough for me to get a picture. Sunday we got up and ran 2 miles on the riverwalk across from our house. We ran up and down one side of the bridge, and then repeated it and ran back home. It was a little over 2 miles. It was just the perfect amount of time to get a short run in and then go about our day. After the run, the sun came out so I spent 3 hours by the pool. I feel completely refreshed now and ready for the week…except for that presentation I have to do this Wednesday at work. I do not like public speaking one bit. Performing in public (cheerleading, gymnastic, dance, etc.) was never a problem at all, but speaking in public is a big fear of mine. I get so nervous, and honestly I think I hype it up much more than I should. Does anyone have any pointers on how to be calm and speak slowly while presenting?
