I'm so glad it's Friday. Traveling last weekend was kind of exhausting and the time change threw off my sleeping this week, so I'm looking forward to getting a few goods nights sleep. I'm also hoping the Hubs gets a little bit of break from work this weekend because the first tax deadline was yesterday. For those of you who haven't been reading for a while, he's a CPA and works insanely long hours this time of year until tax day.
We're going out for sushi tonight and hopefully to a friend's birthday party tomorrow night. I hope you have equally as nice plans this weekend.

Beyond all the blog post fun this week, here's a look at some of the highlights!
My Dad, Brother and I stopped in Knoxville on our home from Chattanooga last weekend and explored downtown. It' a charming little city! I loved these wall murals... although the Instagrammer in my totally failed at not taking some insta worthy shots here. 🙂
My Dad and Mom met in Knoxville but only lived there a short while, so my Dad has fond memories of the city.
It was fun to hear him talk about all the changes!
It was really cool outside, but the trees were blooming and it was simply gorgeous. We also took the long route home through Pigeon Forge and at at the Apple Barn, which has been a long standing family favorite. It was so nice to spend time with my Dad and Brother!
I feel like the last time I wrote a weekly happenings post I was gushing about the spring weather... but March has been so cold and snowy! We even got a crazy mid-week snow that dumped a little more than an inch in an hour. I didn't take a photo until after a lot of it melted, but it was kind of crazy.
I know a lot of the country has been having a lot worse weather, but I'm pretty sure we can all share the sentiment of wanting spring to come for real.
I met the Hubs for lunch this week at Gan Shan Station West. I got these Thai roasted brussels sprouts, which were dreamy! I'm still thinking about them.
I also got their delicious vegetarian ramen bowl, which was perfect for the freezing weather we were having that day.
Vegan Rainbow Salad
AND finally if you are over from Instagram, here's that Vegan Rainbow Salad. It's perfect for St. Patrick's Day tomorrow!
It looks like this weekend and next week will finally be warmer.... bring on spring! I hope y'all have a great weekend. I'll see you back here Monday.
What are you doing this weekend?

What an awesome weekend! Our weekend was spent by the lake with family. We’re glad to be home now but it was a lovely little trip!

Glad you enjoyed your time in Knoxville. I am sure your
dad appreciated it. We ( my daughters and grandson )
will be celebrating my dad's birthday at my folks on Saturday.
I will then go down to Greenville on Sunday to watch my grandson
while my daughters and their mom and her mom go to see
the play The Color Purple at the Peace Center. Looking forward
to a nice family / traveling weekend. Hope you enjoy your weekend.
Remember to wear green on Saturday so you don't get pinched ( smile )
Hope you have a great weekend!! And it looks like we have snow in the forecast next week 😉
Love that iconic Tennessee theater sign. When I was in Birmingham, there was the Alabama theater, which we ran by. I had to stop and snap it! Looks like a fun trip.

Have a great weekend! One of my "regrets" about giving up my car is that we are fairly tied around her. We could get a zipcar, or whatever, of course, but that just feels like such an expense, even though we probably would have payed just as much taking a trip with the car! We just didn't have to pay them up front!

Knoxville is a really cool city! There's so many restaurants there that I want to try out. Girl I'm dying for spring weather!! Someone told me we may get more snow next week here in Jersey... I want to wear cute dresses soon not snow boots!

Those Brussel sprouts look amazing. Sounds like a good weekend ahead, hope it’s great!
