What if we...

Got to meet Brandon Heath!!

It was such an exciting night for me! What a great trip to Memphis to see Lindsey and Anna, and get to meet Brandon Heath. I was a roller coaster of emotions from excited to nervous about meeting Brandon, and he was SO NICE! He is such an amazing artists and his music is fabulous! I think God uses Brandon's music to speak to me. This concert was part worship service and part concert so it was so amazing. It really got me ready and excited about Sharp Top this weekend!

I gotta go catch the bus to Sharp Top, but wanted to share how much fun I had at the concert! LOVE HIM!

Busy busy weekend

I have a very busy and very exciting weekend coming up! I am getting ready to head to Memphis to see Brandon Heath in concert tonight! I got meet and greet passes and I am beyond thrilled to "meet and greet" Brandon. I also get to stay with Lindsey which is always so much fun!

On Friday I am headed to Sharp Top Cove for the weekend with a group of BA Young Life students. I could really use your prayers that this weekend! Young Life camps are some of my favorite places so I am excited to get to share that with these students.

Can't wait to share the stories and pictures with you soon!!

I LOVE going to the Green Hills Kroger after I work out. The Green Hills Kroger is one of the nicest grocery stores I have been to. They have a Starbucks and two sitting areas with flat screen tv's. Whenever I go, I get caught up on the news or football game that is playing. The Green Hills Kroger is also filled with many young professionals like myself. When I was in college, I felt the same way about the UT Library. Yes, I would be going to "study" but I was also going to be social. That's how my grocery store is. I go to buy groceries, but also see people there whenever I go. It is the cheapest grocery store around now that Whole Foods has moved in the next block down. When I moved to Nashville, I was surprised about how many people wore their workout clothes around town. I am not sure why, but it almost seems like a dress code on weeknights at Kroger to wear your workout clothes. It is located right by the YMCA that I go to, so it is very convenient for people to work out and then get groceries. I have class and Young Life most nights so I am usually not able to do this, but I got to go last night and it made me so happy. I went to work out at the Y, and then headed to Kroger to buy some things to cook dinner. It sounds really weird now that I am writing all of this out, but I won't stop doing it. Happy Krogering!

Fall is here!

The temperature is falling, the leaves are falling, football is in high gear, and pumpkin foods are incorporated in most facebook status updates. It must be fall! Adrienne and I got fall fever and we decided to have our own personal Fall Fest! Chili, apple cider, and carving pumpkins were the goals for Saturday. We had such a fun time!

My favorite part is getting all the stuff out of the pumpkin. Gross.

Classic pumpkin carving mistake. The teeth fell out of my pumpkin, but it still turned out cute!
Pumpkin Carving in Tennessee would not be complete without a power T pumpkin!
Happy Fall, Yall!

All for the Hall

I love Nashville and country music! Tuesday night Keith Urban and Vince Gill put on a benefit concert for the Country Music Hall of Fame. This was Keith's idea to do something like this so he and Vince put it together. Keith played for about an hour with his band and then we had an intermission. After the break, Keith Urban, Vince Gill and friends played for a few more hours. I took about 100 pictures of all the guests, but instead of putting all the pictures on here, I will just name them.
Little Big Town
Brad Paisley
Lady Antebellum
Dierks Bentley
Jason Alden
Faith Hill
Taylor Swift

Here is a picture of the whole group during the finale!
As you can see, our seats were really close.... ha! And it was pouring down raining so we look like we swam to the concert!

UT vs Georgia

I could also call this game the Battle of the SEC's cutest coaches! This weekend was amazing! I love blogging so I can remember things like this weekend. This weekend was a little reunion of our college friends! I got to see so many of my friends from UT and it was so wonderful.

Friday started out with a fun car ride with the Kuhlmans and Lindsey. Jamie and Ricky are in Austin, TX so it was extra special to have them come in town! We sang and laughed and the car ride just flew by. Such a fun time to catch up with people too! (I am sad I didn't get a picture of this).

I also got to spend a lot of quality time with sweet Lindsey. Lindsey is such a trooper for staying for the entire game! She is having twins in January and is the cutest little thing ever!! It was the twins first UT game and I think they liked it. Hopefully they will be there as students in 18 years! We had so much fun at the game and all weekend together! And UT won the game!! It is way more fun when we win!
Sunday we threw a baby shower for Lindsey. It was great to be able to celebrate Lindsey and help her out with the babies! Did I mention she is having twins?!

This weekend was just incredible. I am so thankful for my amazing friends and sweet family. I wish I could go back to this perfect weekend! GO VOLS!!!

UT vs Auburn

Another successful weekend in Knoxville.... minus the game! The game was not great, but I had the best seats I have ever had at any game. 50 yard line, 12 rows up! Thanks Jean for the great seats (and the yummy petro)!

It is always so much fun when our friends get together. I just love these girls so much!

I also got to catch up with some old friends at the UT Young Alumni tailgate. This was a great time and I am so glad I went!

The highlight of the weekend was getting to see baby Kaitlin! She was so good and so cute! I am kinda obsessed with her!

The weekend began and ended with some sweet friends as well. Sara came to see me on Thursday night on her way to Knoxville and Lauren and I got to hang out Friday and Sunday. I am so lucky to have gotten to see them!! I just love them. They are such encouraging friends. I don't have a picture of them from this weekend, so I will just add another one (or two) of Kaitlin!
