I told Jasper I really like to keep my public feed food-related so he brought out his doughnut toys so he could make the cut.🍩 His sushi toys are hidden in his favorite hiding spot: the bathroom cabinet. 🐈 Today marks 3 years since we adopted @jasperragdollcat and his brother Gordon from @operationkindness. It’s just Jasper and I now after a great deal of change in both of our lives. The intense bond, love, and joy an animal brings is hard to describe to someone who hasn’t experienced before — and in this season of extreme loss and transition — this cat is my life raft. I’m so glad that while so much has changed and left my life, he’s still here. Three years have been better with you in them, sweet boy. I love you more than queso.
Warm, plush ricotta doughnuts made a fine end to a meal at @jeffrubysnashville last night. Old Vegas vibes and a piano towering above the bar set quite a scene at this downtown steakhouse import. 🎰
Ⓜ️Because you all know by now how much I love alliteration — a little Monday motivation + musing. 🍕 Milk & Honey’s Margherita pizza sort of surprised me a few weeks back. Admittedly I haven’t been to @milkandhoneynashville before because I always saw it as too tourist-y — but I enjoyed this wood-fired pie and their selection of cold pressed juices. 💪🏻 Another M-word for today: muscle-toning. 😬 You guys, it’s been well over 5 years since I’ve done any real sort of a workout. A couple of my dear friends have convinced me to try my hand at @barrysbootcamp so, that’s happening. I’m ridiculously afraid of the soreness and out-of-shape-ness that will be revealed, but this is one of those steps I’ve been meaning to take for awhile. Because apparently juice shots, smoothies, “walking to dinner” and random crunches and push-ups maybe aren’t enough to take care of myself at 37. 🤷🏼♀️🙃 Who knew? I promise not to be that girl — stay tuned for more pizza, queso, and burgers as always — but here’s hoping I sleep and just feel overall better with this new shift. After a year of intense loss, I am so ready for my next year of intense healing and growth.
🍜 King Market Antioch’s chicken noodle soup and spicy sausage — some might call these a couple of iconic Nashville dishes. 👇🏼 What other meals around Nashville would you add to that list?
Every 1 in 100 posts I feel the need to show you something green I ate. This stunning sesame Caesar at so-close-to-open @lounashville is the perfect opportunity to do so. From the beautifully executed food to the welcoming surroundings to the really cool wine list, I think y’all are gonna dig this one Nashville. #eaternashville #eater #sometimesieatsalad #beautifulfood
🥂 Last week I was passing by @josephineon12th at 5pm and starving — I had a late evening dinner plan, and that #smoothieforlunch just wasn’t cutting it anymore. 🚙 I considered myself #blessed to a)not run over a pedestrian crossing the street improperly and b)to find a parking spot on 12th, and popped in planning to grab that $6 burger (it is one of the best in town). Instead, I found this stellar $6 smoked @giffordsbacon bologna sandwich and also snagged a glass of $7 sparkling because y’all know by now I’m not a beer girl — and now this is going on my regular pairings rotations in Nashville, right alongside hot chicken + rosé. You’re welcome and happy Tuesday.
