Hope you enjoyed your long weekend!
Our trip down south was definitely a good and fun time!
The unfortunate part was that i go so caught up in visiting and enjoying the fresh air/breeze
that i didn’t take any pictures.
I also didn’t want to come across like a photo hound!
Sometimes being part of the blogging world can do that to you!
So i will reminisce about some of the fun parts of the trip down South
using pictures borrowed from the Internet.
We stayed mostly in Memphis, Bartlett and Arlington areas.
I had no idea TN had so many cities. Definitely will need to visit all the others soon.
Our first day there…
We went to lunch at Young Avenue Deli–delicious food and they had the best…
Sweetened ice tea ever..it was yummy and definitely had my fair share of it.
We were a little early for the lemonade but maybe next time.
Our friends made us feel so comfortable and welcomed…it was a great feeling.
We had a cookout which was complete fun.
We were out on the back porch for most of the evening…
i even saw fireflies which in the South are called lightening bugs!!
Oh and they had ceiling fans on the back porch
which i just thought was too relaxing for my own good.
Team Pancakes definitely felt at home.
We went house-hunting and saw many beautiful homes
which we would love to live in someday.
It was fun to see what types of houses we liked
(large and spacious and affordable)
and what things we needed to compromise on.
At some points, i felt as if we were on House Hunters…
it was a fun experience.
If we had a choice…
i think there were a few houses that were on our list!
Sunday we got our Church on and enjoyed some good ol’ Southern worship and praising!
We went to lunch at J. Alexander’s Restaurant.
I’ve never heard of the restaurant before but
of course they had delicious foods
and their sweetened ice tea wasn’t bad either.
Yes i became addicted to sweetened ice tea!
All in all, it was a great trip.
We didn’t have Southern BBQ but i think there will be many more trips in our future to TN
so i will make sure to experience everything it has to offer!
Team Pancakes was excited to see our possible new home!
So to recap, here are a few things we enjoyed during my trip down south.
It’s hot down South but there is fresh air/breeze.
I learned Sweetened ice tea is refreshing.
Fireflies are called lightening bugs.
Ceiling fans on the back porch is a must!
Houses are large, spacious and affordable!
Southern praise and worship is an experience!
