soul sister

Last night I went to see Train at the Orpheum. 
They are so so good live.
"Hold your cell phones up in the air, and just be glad that we made it here alive."

Needtobreathe opened. And holy cow were they good.
South Carolina rock and roll boys. So talented.
I love this place. Such a fun night.

If you live in memphis and haven't yet been to yolo, you're missing out! It's a whole new world of froyo.

Self serve soft serve (say that 5x fast) and more toppings than you could dream of.

Lots of fresh fruit, too.

It's in the Erin Drive shopping center. Check it out!

house tour

I have been meaning to do this for so long. Here is a look at my house!

Living room.
My grandmother's glasses.

Dining room.

My favorite piece of furniture. Found at the flea market. Made in Germany 100+ years ago.

Concrete floors...

...and concrete counters!
Office. My grandmother's rug.

These knobs are original to the house, which was built in 1949. They are in almost every room. I love how the paint is chipping.
Original bathroom tile.

Hallway. My grandfather's hangers.
Bedroom. The picture is my mom. The larger frame is a paper my uncle wrote when he was little about his family. He said my mom (his little sister) is annoying. 

Lights on the back porch.

to grandmother's house we go

(mary-kate and ashley movies were a big deal in our house)

My grandmother has lived in the same house all my life, and very little has changed. We've made so many good memories there. When I was there this weekend, I took some pictures of my favorite details of her house.

See pictures from my other grandmother's house here. Update: my cousin is living there for now, so we're not getting rid of it just yet!

trot on over

Just added a post all about the barn to the Whisker Snaps blog. Go check it out!

one last summer getaway

Last week we made a last minute decision to spend a few days in Hot Springs, Ark., before Hank starts school.

Crossing the old Memphis - Arkansas bridge.

I didn't realize quite how literal the city name is. You can see the actual springs, where the water is just under boiling.
The city was built around a row of enormous bath houses. People came from all over to take a bath in the springs. Only two of the houses are still open for business, and one has been turned into a museum.

Hot Springs has quite the selection of steak houses, some right on Lake Hamilton.

We went to a little theme park, where for some reason I decided to ride this. Horrifying due to my trust issues with safety restraints. Scroll down to watch it in action, and you'll see why.

We found a cute little diner where we had the best sundaes ever.

The end of summer is so bittersweet, don't you think?
