Nashville Trip- Day 3

What a day! Haircut, cupcakes and dinner with a KC friend.

1. Cupcakes- wow! So wow that we are going back tomorrow because each day brings a new menu full of cupcakes. I had white midnight madness and ross had peanut butter cup. we both thought ours was the best, so i would say we made good choices. though i wish i could have tried- dark chocolate midnight madness, wedding cake, hunka hunka banana chocolate, and southern comfort. i'm sure the list will be just as enticing tomorrow. thank goodness they do not put the calorie count on the menu!

2. Haircut.
I ventured to a place in midtown called streets salon. i found it online by searching for salons in the midtown/vanderbilt area. streets won out because it had a website, it had a nice website, a cool looking salon, cool looking stylists and it was affordable.

i went in going for something drastically short but the stylist told me that wouldn't be best for my round face- ouch on the round part because i'm not so sure that normally i have a round face- i think its normally oval... oh well. (and yes i know the cupcakes aren't helping...) so she suggested the katie holmes look but with more layers. so here it is. it feels so much lighter. don't you just love that "i just got out of the salon" feel- so soft, the style looks the best it will ever look, etc.
3. Dinner- Tin Angel.
Good food, very giada-esque. eggplant parmigiano, orzo, proscuitto, etc. We ate dinner with a former co-worker from KC who is now working for tennessee state health in the TB section. good stuff- not TB but the job. it was great to catch up with him.

so the food was pretty good but the best part was when the waiter read, well more like stumbled through the specials list, describing things as chunky, puffed up rice, possibly part of the sauce, chicken of the forest which probably means a wild chicken, and more for a good 5 minutes. needless to say we did not order any of the specials. we also did not order the soup of the day after the waiter said, it's good, i had some yesterday...

4. and finally, i have seen this in those funny emails (funny sometimes but don't send me any more of these type of forwards, i will delete them- you know who you people are) but since i saw it in person i had to take a luckily we don't buy premium or we would have to leave cora in nashville. whew!

I love the hair cut as well. When you get a chance if you want to send me your photo album stuff, I've got pictures from Lacy's wedding. My email is Sounds like you all are having a great time on your trip.

I'll echo the haircut comments. It is adorable! The cupcakes and local "flava" sound scrumptious! I jealous - cupcakes for bfast! Fantastic.
