I decided to explore some of the sculptures on the Vanderbilt campus. I'd set out to find the cat sculptures, but I couldn't remember where they were. However, I found "Map Turtle: Graptemys Geographica" (pictured above) right away. Then, I spotted "Shadow and Substance" and "Come Play."
Hopefully, I will venture back out to see the cat ones soon...

I am very excited to report that this week I got to finally meet my friend Jack Hooper's fiancé Linda! They made us dinner, and we got to chat and what-not. Heartfelt thanks to Jack and Linda for having us over and feeding us a delicious meal of hummus, salmon (Darrell had the salmon), eggs, broccoli, and beans + rice. It was wonderful; I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Linda is quite a catch, Jack Hooper! Congratulations to the happy couple. :^)
I also got to meet Baxter, Linda's Shiba Inu. I insisted he be in the picture above, because he's so darn cute, and he is Jack's furry little friend.
It's very cute.

We tried out the new restaurant downtown, Taste of Italy. It is an Italian bar. I had salad and spaghetti, which were mostly unremarkable. However, the breadsticks are something to write home about.
Afterward, we went to the bank, and I spotted a wall that beckoned me. So, I climbed it. I felt quite proud of myself.

Feeling less than adventurous this week lead me to a nearby home store I've heard good things about, Southeastern Salvage.
We saw some "vanilla bean" hardwood that tickled our fancy, and I enjoyed the copper sinks. It'll be a while before we can get that kind of stuff, though... still working on peeling the wallpaper. Blegh. But a girl can daydream, right?
I can't find a picture on the internet of vanilla bean hardwood flooring, but it looks a lot like tigerwood, only darker darks and blonder blondes.
