2015: the first half.

We realize we've been a little MIA on the blog, so we decided to do a post about what's gone on the first half of this year for us. This year started out on a high note for us.  I started a new job fresh out of the water from graduate school, and Ashlynn entered her last semester of classes for her graduate degree.  We also missed more days of school this winter than we have in the past six years of living in Tennessee due to ice and snow.

Once Spring hit, we had some visitors.  We enjoyed eating at Puckett's Grocery and going to Arrington Vineyards.  It was great having my Mom and grandmother here!

For Mother's Day, we drove down to Mississippi for the weekend.  We picked up our parents and went to New Orleans for the day!  We ate at Middendorf's and of course, Cafe Du Monde.

Ashlynn also surprised me and took me out to eat at 55 South in Franklin, and then to the Franklin Theatre to see Billy Dean in concert.

We also went on a date to Cheekwood Botanical Gardens in Nashville.  It was a perfect day for it.  It's not pictured, but we also went to eat at Fenwick's 300.  We highly recommend it if you're in town.

During a trip to North Carolina, we stopped by Paula Deen's Family Kitchen.  Y'all... add this to your bucket list today!

For Father's Day, we drove down to Mississippi and went to eat at Georgia Blue.  We love this place.  You just can't go wrong here!  I got the shrimp and grits.  I take it one step further and get a crawfish cream sauce on top.

2015 has been great so far!  We can't wait to see what's in store for the next half.

It's Friday!

I realize the last time we updated the blog, it was a list... just like this one.  That's okay though, right?  Let's dive right in!

I'm in the mood for a good burger.  Here's what not to do when preparing them.

This Chicken Parmesan recipe.  It you want to take it to the next level, grab a fresh loaf of bread at Whole Foods and make your own bread crumbs.

Peanut butter + Bacon + Dark Chocolate = Cookies.  Best math problem we've ever solved.

As much as it pains me to say this, we didn't pre-order.

Speaking of pre-ordering things, Our pastor, Pete Wilson, has a new book coming out May 5.  Pre-order here.

Making these soon.
