    Taylor and I attended a clothing party at my friend's home and we got to try on different clothes together. She was able to interact with a few other women close to my age, and see that the woman runs the business out of her home. I played for her some Fleet Foxes because I was seeing them in concert that night as we drove to have FROYO, which we both had a blast making! Then we took a peaceful walk through Shelby Farms where we saw deer and talked a lot about her friends that she's made over the years, and how to keep in touch with them, and also my years working as a teacher.

    Taylor was dressed up and looked very mature walking around in heels throughout the event! We enjoyed eating different soups and also grimacing at ones we both did not like! We also both got free soap from the event and we shared them with each other. While taking a walk on Beale St. we stopped into Schwabb's and explored all 3 floors to window shop and try out the ukeleles. We had a blast just being ourselves with each other and talking.

    We spent the entire 2 hours walking around barnes and noble bookstore. She loves books and we got to look up in a map of Tennessee where she's lived and where her new foster parents may live. We also got to play more music to sing to in the car. She is really opening up a lot!!

    We walked around the mall and I took her for icecream. I was teaching her all about types of makeup and we were laughing because we didn't understand a bunch of what the makeups were for. We got to walk around and also havr lunch together. Also, I didn't realize I never recorded this in January!!

    Besides me feeling slightly sick, we were able to enjoy an hour outside volunteering, talking about new music we like listening to, and then going out to eat tacos downtown. She got to meet my significant other briefly and we talked about dating and Valentine's day and our thoughts on both. She gave me a hug at the end!

    We went to see Despicable Me 3 and then drove around a bit to find an open restaurant. We ate at the Macaroni Grille where I taught Taylor how to eat spaghetti with a spoon, she tried bread dipped in olive oil and practiced cutting with a knife (she had forgotten). I gave her a bag of gifts I put together for her too!

    We made Christmas cards for our friends and mentors :) She was extremely excited that I would be able to take her out on Christmas day.
