A little Weekend Recap.

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

On Friday Taylor's mother and step father came to town for a visit. I love showing off our new home, and will post pictures soon (I just always seem to find something else I want to add!!). It was really nice out when they arrived, so we had happy hour out on the deck. My in-laws brought their chocolate lab, Shadow, and him and Stella chased each other around for quite some time. We decided we missed the seafood readily available when we lived in NC, so we went to Joe's Crab Shack for dinner (certainly not as good, but well enough to curb the craving!).

Saturday we headed downtown to check out Sun Studio, and since we were already downtown we had to take them to Rendezvous for some BBQ. After lunch we walked 42 blocks (yes, I am exaggerating) to Sun Studio. If you are not familiar with this place, it is a famous recording studio that has produced some pretty famous singers (Elvis and Johnny Cash to name a few, heard of them?).  It was really an interesting tour, and our guide was so excited and enthusiastic that it really made the experience that much better. The really cool thing about this place, is that they give tours during the day, but artist still come in to record at night. All that music history made us thirsty, so we wandered over to Beal Street for a drink. The drinks from Beal Street had us feeling lucky so we headed over to the Casino for an hour or so (see how that escalated so quickly there?), we weren't lucky and decided to come home to grill out.

Sunday was our last day all together so we decided to go out for brunch. We went to a place called Owen Brennons. It was the fanciest buffet brunch I have ever seen. If you wanted it, they had it! From oysters on the half shell to a made to order waffle and omelet bar. I ordered their house made Cajun bloody mary, it was a little too salty for my liking, so if you go, I suggest getting the mimosas. After brunch  Taylor took us for a tour of his new boat (I've been so busy with my job, it was my first time seeing the boat as well!). After that it started to rain so we retreated back to the house to lounge around and watch movies. The weekend was quite relaxing and it is always nice to catch up with family.
