Tell your friend Fall to hurry on over.
We’ve been enjoying the last days of Summer but craving Fall so much.
Here are some of our end of summer happenings.
I recently went to Atlanta for my friend Crystal’s bachelorette party. She is a sweet friend and Phi Mu sister from UT. I can NOT WAIT for her wedding in Austin in a few weeks! We had a blast in Atlanta. The crew was about half friends from college and half friends from her post-college days in Atlanta. So that was really fun. We all got along so well and had a blast – duh, Crystal picked us all as friends, so we’re clearly all awesome. It was so much fun.
We spent Saturday “shooting the Hooch,” or tubing down the Chattahoochee River. So nice! It was like redneck tanning. Just laying in a tube, getting some sun and drinking from your floating beer cooler next to you. Yes indeed.
Then, it was bachelorette time. On the right is Edgin and I – my freshman year roomie!
There was a serious game of Jenga. Each piece had a question about the bride and groom on it or had a “drink three drinks” or “never have I ever” kind of phrase on it. It was hilarious.
Me and the bride!
OMG – dinner at Two Urban Licks. I had scallops over gouda grits. GOUDA! I love you.
Jen Hester and I have a mutual friend back in Nashville – like, besides the ones who know Crystal. Small world.
Beginning of night – end of night. 8:30 vs. 3:31. Wow.
Back in Nashpatch, we went to Bartender Bash. Just as fun as I remember! But the drinks were not as yummy as last year. There were only a couple that blew my mind. The rest were just, eh, so so. But when you’re in good company, it doesn’t really matter.
Alice and I, and Samantha and I. Samantha, our month-long roomie, has moved back to GA since her rotation, and we miss her so! Hopefully she’ll do her residency at Vandy.
Beautiful Union Station Hotel where Bartender Bash was held.
End of the night – sorry so blurry, but things were…well, blurry.
Also while Samantha was here, there was a Food Truck contest in Centennial Park across the street from our place. We headed over because Samantha won a spot as a judge! She got to try like 20 food trucks on her last day in Nashville. Jealous.
I ordered lunch from Riff’s Fine Street Food, my favorite food truck that I’ve tried.
I had the shrimp and grits (OMG) and the salt cod fritters, which was their “tasting” portion available for the event. Y’all. I could eat those one more time, top it off with their cucumber basil (I think that’s what it was) lemonade and die happy.
Look at Samantha and all her loot! Fortunately, she left a lot of it in our fridge when she drove back to GA the next day. Muhahahah. I ate it. All.
Come on, Fall! I’m tired of sweating every.where.I.go.
