I haven’t done a “This Week in Photos” post in months, so today is perfect for one in conjuction with the Tennessee Bloggers Linkup. Today’s theme for the linkup is what are you looking forward to most this fall? Fall is mine and Shane’s favorite time of the year. It’s when we met, when we remet and when we got engaged. There is something about that feeling in the air just takes me back and makes me want to listen to Led Zeppelin nonstop. Fall also seems to be a big wedding season for our friends and family members this year. The changing of the seasons also makes us want to get out more and try different things and new restaurants. Over the past week, I had a lot of good food (that is not very healthy) and have had some good nights out with friends. You may have seen a couple of these pictures on Instagram
, but most of these are new from the past week.
Last weekend was my good friend Janessa’s
bridal shower. We had tacos to eat, margaritas to drink and a fun game that involved Facebook statuses over the last 5 years. It was so good getting to see this group of girls again!
On Tuesday, we picked up a to go order from Tugs
. We didn’t even realize it, but it is Elvis week. I couldn’t resist getting the “Hound Dog” and the banana pudding. I’m still wishing I would have gotten a peanut butter and banana sandwich too. Wednesday night Shane and I finally tried Trolley Stop Market
for the first time! It is definitely more of a lunch type place, but we really ended up liking it anyway. We started with spinach and artichoke dip and Las Delicias
chips. It was good, but not the best I’ve ever had. My favorite was the BLT & pimento cheese sandwich (yes this is one sandwich not two!), and this is coming from someone who has never even like pimeno cheese. Shane tried the philly on a hoagie and loved it. I tried a couple bites too, and I can definitely agree. You can never go wrong with peach cobbler, and this one did not disappoint. I can honestly say I have been craving that BLT & pimento cheese sandwich all day today too!
Thursday night my good blogger friend AJ
was in town, so we just had to meet up at Aldo’s and sit on the patio. AJ was sweet enough to treat me to the Memphis pizza (my favorite!) Do you see a theme here? A week full of food that will require me to workout A LOT next week.
My friend and photographer is moving and is staying busy with that process. At the same time, my backup camera girl and sister-in-law is getting ready to go to the beach, so you will have to bear with me over the next couple of weeks. I bought a Sony NEX-5N a few months ago and have not been that impressed with it, so I sold it on eBay recently and am looking for a new camera. I prefer one with a great zoom on it. I have been looking at some of the smart cameras and am thinking it would be nice to be able to automatically upload my pictures via wi-fi to my laptop and my iPhone. Has anyone tried a smart camera before? I still haven’t gotten up the nerve (or money) to buy a DSLR yet. Does anyone have any recommendations for a nice middle of the road camera that is still compact but good quality? What are you looking forward to most this fall?
