Easter weekend was definitely a tail to tell! Tessa wanted to have an impromptu date night Friday night so, since she had been craving sushi, I decided to take her out to the new sushi restaurant, Tanoshi Sushi Pub. We had this awesome flamin' shrimp appetizer and she ordered a boatload of sushi....literally!
She even gave me yet another lesson in the proper use of chopsticks. I'm still not a pro by any means, but I at least made it through dinner without asking for silverware! That's not to say I didn't use my fingers for a few pieces of sushi!
On Saturday, we made our way up to her hometown in Rutherford County for her best friend Krista's wedding reception which followed the private ceremony. Thank God there was lots of food because I was starving! And burgers and hot dogs at that! Now that's my kind of reception!
On Easter morning, I had my mom play the Easter bunny and drop off a basket I got for Tessa that included some high tech goodies like the new BioShock game and two pairs of 3D glasses for our new TV! I had Mom put it together and she even added a few extra sweet treats to balance the techie heavy basket! She rang the doorbell before 8:30 in the morning which had Tessa in a tizzy wondering who the hell was ringing our doorbell so early. Thankfully she beat me to the door and found what Mama Easter Bunny had left!
After poking and prodding our spoils, we got ready to go to my aunt Pat's church, Temple Baptist which is the church I grew up in. Tessa had never been to a hardcore Southern Baptist church before so, needless to say, it was quite an experience for her!
After church, we went to the Coach House with Mom, Aunt Pat and my uncle James Ray. Man, I love that place! Better than Cracker Barrel!
After dinner, we met up with Tessa's mom and cousin at the house and had some chocolate oatmeal no bake cookies that Tessa had made and some pineapple cake that Mom had made. Needless to say, I resumed my diet with a quickness on Monday!
