Fires * Oven roasted fresh tomato sauce * Nashville girls' weekend

19 September 2018

Hello, all! I don’t even know what to title this post because it is pretty random but my September has turned out to be quite random so it probably fits. This is when I turn to bullet points to talk  so I don’t have to put as many sentences together.

* We are on fire in Utah. Literally. They are all around us and we have not been evacuated but so many have – the fires have grown to 100,000 combined acres in the mountains behind us. Don’t you wish we could transfer the water from the flooding in North Carolina to the fires in the west?? Here are some photos of the fires.

* Our garden was successful! Maybe too successful? We were over-run with tomatoes and peppers -- I posted an awesome pasta sauce recipe on Instagram that we made last week and I’m going to make it again tonight it was so good.




nashville girls weekend
* I went to Nashville! I got to go with the girls on my husband’s side – our first sister trip and it was a blast. What an incredible city!  Here are some favorites that we hit:

andrew jackson hermitage girls weekend
- Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage: for the history buffs! What a gorgeous estate, so well preserved and fascinating tour and ride out to the cotton fields and slave quarters. We loved the live duel and also thought the wagon ride out to the fields and lake was worth the extra money. We headed to Gondola House Pizzeria afterward and it was super good.

pinewood social bowling girls weekend

- Dinner & Bowling at Pinewood Social – I loved this place! Food was great and how long has it been since I’ve been bowling with a bunch of girls? Lots of laughs at this hip & retro gem.

biscuit love nashville girls weekendLily at Biscuit Love Nashville
- Biscuit Love. LOVED! We went on a Saturday morning and the line moved fast, it only took about 20 minutes to be seated?  I still dream of the Lily – Lemon Mascarpone and Blueberry Compote on Biscuit French toast?? Everything was good.

- The Grand Ole Opry – of course. How can you not go?? We loved the backstage tour – seeing where they dress, the family room, fun facts and stories and you get to stand on the circle (brought over from the originial Ryman auditorium) on stage and get a picture. The really enjoyed the warmth of the hosts and variety of music.

gaylord opryland girls weekend
- Gaylord Opryland Hotel – the most beautiful place and the cost wasn’t so bad when you split it up.  Shuttles to everything and just beautiful to walk around, or head down to the pools.

loveless cafe girls weekend nashville
Loveless Cafe – an iconic Nashville landmark! True southern cooking. Were were there by 8 a.m. and were seated right away and there was a wait by the time we left, make reservations if you can. What a beautiful drive to get there – gorgeous estates!

The Country Music Hall of Fame – this was cool but not what I was expecting for $28? Mostly just outfits and a few memorabilia items, maybe because there are so many? Elvis’s car alone may be worth it. I guess it depends on what exhibits they have rotating.

Thanks for sticking with me – we’re starting to turn cooler and I want to pull my fall decor out ♥
Happy Wednesday~
