Last night, I got to spend time with one of my favorite people, @amandavanhardy
learning a new to us crafting technique. We made these fabulously chunky knit blankets that my kids are going to fight to use. @arworkshopnashville
is a spacious venue with a vast arrangement of projects available. There were plenty of staff on hand to aid us when we went astray (often for me!). I’ll be back soon and you should join me with your wine 🍷 and cheese 🧀. You’re guaranteed a cool end result and maybe you’ll even make some new friends 👭.
This weekend, I was so lucky to get to spend lots of quality time with my birth mother who was visiting from Chicago. We only met 8 years ago but can finish each other’s sentences and laugh so much. One of our stops was the local botanical gardens. Cheekwood is such an all-inclusive family experience from the workshops to the art(@gabrieldawe
🙌🏼) to the holiday displays. We were captivated by @lundycupp
and his pumpkin carving!! @cheekwood
Birthday celebrations continue. I never want to forget about the established restaurants that have forged a path for the many locally owned eateries in town. @yellow_porch
is in my neighborhood and is consistently great! Loved hanging out with my birth mother, Debbie. @rexlorenty
Birthday week wouldn’t be complete without tacos and queso! Tonight’s standout dish was the Philly cheesesteak taco accompanied by the house margarita! Excited to be celebrating all weekend with Debbie (#notoninstagram
), we miss you @rexlorenty @tacomamanash
I’m always up for trying new restaurants and getting to know new people. Thanks for the birthday treat, @spinachtiger
I enjoyed my turkey burger and flourless chocolate cake!
It’s hard to describe an amazing meal like the one that we had tonight. Each dish was carefully crafted and delivered to our table by the chefs. The food (art!) arrived looking beautiful and tasting like heaven on earth. If I had to choose my favorite bites tonight, I’d go with the beef tartare and the peanut/concord dessert. I’m loving getting to know new friends better; @diningwithdeliajo
Y’all are the best and spoiled me so rotten tonight. ❤️ that we have some people to enjoy super foodie nights with! @bastionnashville
Thank you for treating us like family and for a wonderful experience.
I am so grateful to share life with these awesome ladies! I also shared lunch with them and completely forgot to take pictures which means that the conversation was at the forefront of my mind. Thank you for my birthday treat, girls! @sarahdenniswilson @ebmaple
My chicken tortilla soup hit the spot! @thepuffymuffin
Lest you think that all I’m doing is eating out during my #birthdayweek
I give you my almost homemade dinner, made possible by @wildtreeofficial
In about an hour on Saturday morning, I put together 10 meals and stuck them in the freezer. Today was our first trial and it’s been declared a hit! Thanks for walking me through the ordering, @life_by_lori
I’m still dreaming about last night’s dinner at @nickysnashville
From the warm welcome and decorated table to the homemade focaccia (and that butter!!) to the gnocchi (not pictured, because I inhaled it too quickly) and the desserts, our visit was fantastic. We had great service all night and I will be back with the kids soon. Thank you for the gifts and for treating, @amandavanhardy
My birthday week is off to a great start with brunch at @fenwicks300
with one of my favorites, @maryfreeman007
Thanks for treating but especially for being there and listening!
