Business Trip with my Sidekick

Hey guys!!!  It’s Fridayyyy!  The beginning of a nice long weekend (hopefully) for us!  We are relaxing at the lake with our friends and soaking up the warm weather and sunshine.  We always look forward to our lake trips with our friends every summer and this summer we only get this one trip with our friends.  It was a crazy summer and with my hospital stay, we didn’t plan out our summer like usual because we just didn’t know how long I would end up being in there.  It ended up being a LOT longer than expected so it made sense to hold off on our planning. 

But here we are and I don’t want to spend another moment inside so this will be a quick recap so I can go soak up this beautiful day with my hubby and our friends!

I told yall yesterday that I had a quick business trip on Monday to East Tennessee and since I was driving, I brought my momma along for the ride to keep me company. 🙂

We arrived Monday evening and went straight to the store Soft Surroundings.

We don’t have one in Nashville, but my mom gets the catalog and wanted to try a couple things on.  She ended up ordering a couple dresses and a blouse so it was a win!  After shopping we went to dinner at Water into Wine.


We had some wine to start because what’s a girls night without wine, right? 😉

Then  we shared some stuffed mushrooms (yum!) and a couple salads which were both really good!

We hit the hay after dinner then were up bright and early as I had to be all over town Tuesday morning.  My momma was my driver, which was so nice. We got Starbucks for breakfast… I noticed the pumpkin spice latte is out earlier than ever this year?! crazy!  We hit up Panera for lunch and both got the black bean soup and I got a salad and my momma got a sandwich! I can’t wait for their fall squash soup to be out!  That reminds me that I need to make some butternut squash soup to have at home.  It is my favorite once the fall weather hits!


My mom wanted you guys to see a picture of her flipflop cookie she got from Panera. Isn’t she so cute?


After all my work was finished we headed back to Nashville!  A short, but very productive work trip!  I’m off to go enjoy the sunshine!! I hope you all have a nice long weekend too!!


  1. Do you travel for work?
  2. Any fun plans for the Labor Day weekend?
  3. Favorite type of soup?
