Over the Weekend

This weekend was a blur. Friday night Leslie and I, sans camera, headed to East Nashville to dine at the Family Wash. We devoured kettle chips covered in Gorgonzola cheese and bacon then shared a vegetarian Shepard's pie. Somehow we managed to save room for the homemade desserts- yes, that is plural. On Tuesdays the Family Wash has a $10 Pint & Pie night. After our fabulous comfort food experience, the plan is to get a group together for a Tuesday trip.

Peter came into town late Friday night. Early Saturday we made our way to the Vanderbilt tailgate where Peter was able to confirm his existence to some of my classmates. After the tailgate, in true Vandy style, we left. Don't judge; we had errands to run. For lunch we made our way to Hot Diggity Dog. Of course, it was awesome.

We got a New York, a Nashville, and a Texas. The homemade coleslaw at HDD is hard to beat and even Peter, a professed coleslaw hater, really like it.

Originally, I was supposed to go home this weekend but plans changed when it was decided that there would be a surprise birthday for Peter's sister L. in Nashville on Saturday night. You see, L. decided she would celebrate her birthday with a girl's weekend in Nashville. But- being a milestone birthday, we all wanted it to be special. My MIL, L.'s best friend, and I planned a party in Nashville. After L. drove up from Atlanta Friday night, the family, Baby Quinn and all, packed and drove up Saturday morning.

The look on L.'s face when she saw everyone was priceless. After all of the fretting, we really pulled off the surprise. I love, love, love this picture from the party!

Side note: I struggle with low-light indoor pictures. One day, when I'm not in graduate school, I fully intend on (1) learning more about our camera and (2) purchasing another lens.
