Weekend Update!

The Nashville Farmer's Market is a pretty popular place in Nashville during the summer months.  I've always wanted to head down there and buy some fresh fruits and veggies, but just never have taken the time.  Fortunately, on the 3rd Friday of every month, they have what's called the Night Market.  Not only are all of the farmers selling produce and all of the restaurants open, but there are also lots of specialty shops available, live music, and  even wine.  Because my beau and I hadn't had a date night lately, we decided to check it out.  We were definitely NOT disappointed!  Not only did we get TONS of fresh tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, potatoes, apples and watermelon, but we also really enjoyed walking around, drinking a glass or 2 of wine, and trying one of the many fabulous restaurants.  It was so much fun!  Here are a few pics as evidence:
As we were walking in...

Tomatoes are my favorite veggie...or is it a fruit?

Me and my beau!

Gotta love all the local farmers!

A cool view of downtown!

All of our loot!
After getting up early and getting a lot of things done around the house, I headed to lunch with Patrick and then to the pool.  Next up, Lindy's big 3-0 celebration!  All the girls headed to The Gulch to Cantina Laredo and then over to Whiskey Kitchen for a few after dinner drinks!  It was a fun time to celebrate a super sweet girl!  
Around midnight, the boys (who were all hanging out themselves) decided to head over and meet up with us.  We all had a great time enjoying a night on the town (a rarity these days).
On Sunday, I wasn't quite as productive as I was on Saturday...In fact, I slept so late that Zoey was REEEEAAALLLY ready for me to get up around 9:00 am and take her out.  

After finally pulling myself out of bed, I managed to go on a 2 mile run and then Patrick and I headed to visit Alysia!  She's been a little under the weather, so it was fun to catch up with her for a little while!  Oh, I almost forgot...her mom shared the best Sweet Potato Pie I have EVER eaten in my life while we were there.  I think Patrick and I both scarfed down our pieces so fast we didn't know what happened!

Next up was kickball...yesterday's game didn't go so well, as we got beat 4-0.  Bummer!  At least we ended the evening with a delicious homemade meal provided by yours truly!  It was the best Kung Pao Chicken I think I've ever eaten!  Don't worry, the recipe will be coming soon!  =)

That's about it from me...oh, well, except one thing!  I know it's not still the weekend, but tonight Patrick and I went to Sweet Cece's for ice cream, and we felt kinda bad for Sweet Zoey, so we decided to stop by Mickey D's on the way home and get her an ice cream of her own.  THIS is the result:

It was pretty hilarious...at least it was for Patrick and Me...okay, so maybe no one else enjoyed this, but it makes me smile every single time!

Hope you all have a wonderful week!

I have a few comments about your weekend update!
1.Be careful with all those fruits and veggies. I overdid it the first time I went to the farmer's market and ended up throwing a bunch of stuff away because it went bad before I could eat it!
2. Is it really okay to give your dog ice cream? If so you have a really lucky doggie!
3. Zoey is sooooo cute and sweet! She is a very very very close second to peppermint and that's saying a lot! I loved the video I am going to bookmark it and watch it when I'm having a bad day!

Love you lots!
