Scenes from the weekend...

What a weekend! Two words can basically sum it up. Food and fun. And plenty of both! My best friend from college and her husband came in Thursday afternoon and spent the weekend with us. Too much fun playing tourist in our own city showing them all that Nashville has to offer {with an emphasis on the culinary hot spots!}. We kicked the weekend off with a rooftop wine tasting at one of our favorite spots. It was a little chilly, but we didn't mind as we were so excited to catch up. I could not believe we had not seen them since their wedding almost a year ago.

Friday B had to work, but with the boys in tow we still managed to hit up some Music City favorites. A little hot chicken followed by some ice cream to cool off made for the perfect afternoon. I think the boys just loved having a new audience to entertain! We tucked the boys in that night and were thankful for another night with a babysitter. We started with dinner at Husk and enjoyed the tastiest of mocktails and the best vegetable plate I have ever tasted. A must if you are visiting Nashville. We saved room for dessert and headed to Sinema for more drinks and the "sugar board" which is definitely a pregnant girl's dream. Stayed out way too late but had the best time laughing and chatting.

Saturday we spent with the boys, and they were in heaven. Park time, picnic lunch and sno-cones make for the best kind of day. We headed home for them to nap and the adults caught up on the porch. Picked up takeout and enjoyed the laziest of evenings outside. The weather could not have been more perfect!

As if we had not eaten enough, we decided to finish off the weekend with one last meal. Brunch at Pinewood Social is my absolute favorite, but let me say brunch with kids is not my favorite. Jude was actually so sweet and chill, but George was way more interested in bowling than brunching. After a minor meltdown we consoled him with a biscuit and a little bocci ball, and he was happy as could be! We hugged our friends and bid farewell as they hit the road back to Chicago and we headed home for naps. I was pooped and crawled into bed immediately. Totally worth it for such a fun weekend!
