We found this great pizza place near our house.

Pizza - Week 20

I made my neighbor this soccer cake for her birthday.

Soccer Cake

Jen, Melissa, and I met up in Nashville for the weekend! (Full post coming later.)

Week 20

We stayed at an Airbnb that had deer heads on the wall.

Week 20

There was also a snake in the bedroom. (Not a euphemism.)

Week 20

A cat in the closet. (We freed the cat.)

Week 20

The main drag in Nashville is lined with honky tonk bars. This is as far as we got.

Week 20

I had some excellent southwestern corn meal pancakes.

Week 20

Apparently Nashville has a life-sized replica of the Parthenon. Because, yeah.

Week 20

I got this weird, clear-ish rootbeer. It was a little bitter for my taste.
Week 20

Because we’re tourists we tried to go to see a show at the Bluebird Cafe. The people in front of us got the last seats.

Week 20

So instead we got some gelato.

Week 20

And we still got to see some great live music.

Week 20

Jen and Melissa both got new DSLRs, so we spent a lot of time exploring and taking pictures. Jen really got into it. Literally…into the bushes.

Week 20

We found some incredible pizza at the Nashville farmers market.

Week 20

My roller derby team is obsessed with avocados and have somehow foisted the obsession onto me. This was a delicious avocado popsicle.

Week 20

Headed home into dusk.

We went out for Indian food with Mike and Erin because apparently I like Indian food now. We ordered so much food we needed two tables. This is generally how we roll.

Week 19

Samosas and delicious sauces.

Week 19

It was Liz’s birthday, so I got her a balloon. As I was bringing the balloon to the car it popped. The nice ladies at the store saw me with my sad deflated balloon and gave me a new one for free. Kindness is the best.

Week 19

Liz kept talking about Sherrie’s Berries which are chocolate covered strawberries. I didn’t get the hint so by the time I wanted to order them, it was was too late. Turns out Godiva chocolate strawberries are SEVEN DOLLARS A STRAWBERRY. No one can afford that, so I decided to make my own.

Week 19

The Abels are basically just an adorable family. I couldn’t get a picture of Aly because she was too busy being a nine year-old girl. Multiple nine year-olds girls together is very intimidating.

After completing the most inefficient journey over multiple modes of transportation to go approximately 6 miles, we had Mother’s Day dim sum. After Mother’s Day dim sum we had some time to spare so we stopped for gelato.

Week 19

Blood orange and lemon. So good.

Week 19

Andrew got some coffee.

Week 19

Monday morning these guys showed up with their big truck to trim the trees in our backyard. Funny, as we had no idea they were coming (or had come the week before). Our trees do look good now though!
