|Chloe and Gumball made 3rd overall in 10-14 age group at|
the Farmfest 5K a week ago. She decided last minute to
take him and they had a great time! And she won the
16 and under category at the Bake Off with her poundcake!
|Caitlin Riley was Chloe's summertime babysitter a while back|
and it was so fun running into her at the 5K!
|I took Stella and Whit with us to|
Farmfest when we dropped CoCo's
poundcake for the Bake off
|I'd say the best part of Farmfest|
for us was the Saturday afternoon
wrestling...this is in front of the
post office....Chloe made the comment
that the guy in green looked like a
young Uncle Martin...hahahahaha!
|Look at this shot...cracks me up|
|This poor photo doesn't do this|
Crab Stuffed Avocado justice...it's
served with a charred tomato relish
and chipolte cream
|This photo doesn't do the bar justice either...it was a neat|
atmosphere I'll say
|Father's Day morning Jackie and I did the Gearhead Tri|
again and ran into these Wynne boys, JR Thomas,
Thomas McCutcheon, Jake Haralson and Bryce Dodson
|Chloe our photographer got this shot of August and Stella|
duking it out....What's up with the knee high socks August?
|Chloe also got this one of Shaver Huff at the church service|
at Village Creek a few weeks ago...he is laid out and all comfy
Holy Smokes, Jackie and I came upon this restaurant on Main Street and I instantly fell in love. We were in Memphis to go to Minglewood Hall and see an Irish band called Drop Kick Murphy's. Turned out we were most impressed with their opening band Old Man Markley. They were a great band from LA with a violin, washboard, kazoo etc. I loved much, much more than the Murphy's. At least we could understand the words they sung....:)
We just happened upon Local while enjoying the Sunday afternoon crowd downtown. We got a table near the window and totally enjoyed people watching.
Yes, I know... I ordered an appetizer! And I'm so glad we did. That avocado stuffed with crab meat was delicious, I nearly licked the plate clean. For dinner, I ordered the Goat Cheese and Crab Enchiladas served with Mexico City Corn. It was outstanding. I loved the creamy enchiladas and the great, rich corn. Again, I nearly wiped the plate clean.
I was in Capelli last week getting my hair done and asked if anyone had been to Local and it got rave reviews from them too. Capelli has a new hair stylist, Don whom I love and who gave Chloe and excellent cut the other day. You'll have to make an appointment with him!
Anyway, Local was a great find for us and I am looking forward to trying it again. They have another location in midtown that I've also heard great reviews of. There have been so many restaurants come and go downtown that I hope this one stays around. Wondering what a gastro pub is? I looked it up on google, it originated in England: Gastropub or gastrolounge refers to a bar and restaurant that serves high-end beer and food.
And for the record, I didn't pay attention to what Jackie ordered because I was into mine. :)
