My adorable cousin Kate. She went to the Miley Cyrus concert on Wednesday night. I think my Mom and sis enjoyed it just as much as she did! :o)

It was cousin Randolph's birthday!FRIDAY
More family time and more Monopoly. :) My cousin Matthew stopped by to help finish the keg, and friends Lacie and Neil stopped by too. Also, we nibbled on some smoked trout from Russell. That night we went for drinks at my cousin Rachie's new adorable Hillsboro Village apartment. Then Pat and I headed over to "East Nasty" (East Nashville) to hang out at Lanier's with friends Matt, Jeff, and Kate. Pictures of the day:

We slept in a bit and helped with the house clean up. Pat and I then ventured out to the Nashville Farmers' Market. My friend Claire has a booth for her bakery shop Dozen. Her goodies are all made with local and mostly organic ingredients. We got there later in the day so she was almost sold out but we got one of everything left...BEST pecan square I have ever tasted. I think it's the best dessert I've ever had. The Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies were delish too!! Another great walk with Mom and then later that night my parents braved hosting one more time for our annual Christmas dinner with the Nads (they will be in Argentina this year). The rare beef tenderloin might have been my Dad's best yet. And I always love my Mom's confetti rice (it has peppers and onions in it). Our friends Tom and Shelly picked us up later that night for the annual Wacking of the Bush. Tom is one of Pat's college roommates and it's so nice he lives in Nashville. Ok, so there is this really strong and tasty drink at the Broadway Brewhouse called a Bushwacker. It's kind of like a milkshake but it has 4-5 shots in it I think. I forgot how gross it is to be in a smoke filled bar. Get with the program Nashville and ban it!
