Love Long Weekends!

Last week was CRAZY!  I went to Detroit to take Carter's Chord to sing the National Anthem at the Detroit Pistons game.  I wasn't really even gone for 24 hours.  We had such a good time though and they did such a great job.  They have a new single out called A Little Less Comfortable.  You can check them out at http://www.carterschord.com/.   Such amazingly talented artists!  We also went to this fabulous restaurant called Kona Grill which was amazing.  They do not have one near Nashville unfortunately.

Dave and I were supposed to go to Kentucky this weekend to see my family.  However, Dave didn't get off work until 8:30 on Friday so we didn't get to go. I cooked jambalya Friday night with Turkey Sausage and chicken.  It was so easy and SO GOOD.



Ingredients-
1 box low sodium Zatarain's Jambalaya Mix
1/2 Turkey Sausage Link
2 small chicken breasts.

Directions-
Bring 2 1/2 cups of water to a boil.  Add jambalaya mix and meat (precooked).  Let simmer covered for 25 minutes.  SO EASY and so Yummy!

Saturday morning Dave wanted waffles.  Waffles really aren't on the pre-wedding diet.  I had bought some whole wheat waffle mix to try and we had sugar free syrup as well.  I mixed the mix with a little oil, egg, milk and water.




I used our new waffle maker that Dave's parents gave us.  The waffles looked so pretty I thought!


However,  they were a huge FAIL!  They were super grainy with no taste.  I do not recommend this mix.  Poor Dave ate them to be nice I think, but I wouldn't even give mine to the dog. 

After the bad breakfast experience we decided to go for a 6 mile hike in Percy Warner Park.  It was kind of cool outside but still a nice day.



Dave has to be a Cats fan by default!


After our hike we went to one of my favorite places to eat in Nashville, Bread & Company.  Check out the salad I ordered, pulled Turkey, cucumbers, artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes and their amazing balsamic vinaigrette.  I didn't eat the bread but I so wanted to!


Today we went to church at West End Community Church.  We have been going there for the past few months and really love it!  We went for a long walk this afternoon because it was so beautiful outside.  We checked out a new place in Hillsboro Village called Hot & Cold.  It is a local place that makes coffee drinks, ice cream and my favorite Las Paletas.  They are the best Popsicles in the world.  I had a coconut one today dipped in Oliver & Sinclair Chocolate! It was a a little bit of Heaven!  So that was my weekend so far!  I have the day off tomorrow!  I plan on making a trip to the gym 2 times tomorrow to jump start the week, with a pedicure and making a trip to Z Gallerie to look at a few wedding things. 

SAVE THE DATES

Speaking of wedding, my save the dates are DONE! I cannot wait to get them in!  Kari, my bff and maid of honor made them!  LOVE THEM!!!!




Ok that was a long one!!!
