Last week we had the most beautiful weather here in Memphis. It was 70-80 degrees every day with a bright, sunshiney sky. So naturally I took full advantage of playing outside all week with the kiddos I nanny. Because I do the photography thing full time now, I only keep the kids about 10 hours a week so we try to play hard in the time we do have together. I sure do love these two. 🙂
And on one particularly beautiful day, Mallory and I met some of our friends at the zoo. Are they not precious in those big rocking chairs? 🙂 It was Ben’s (the youngest curly headed one up there) first time at the zoo at an age old enough to see the animals and he was flipping out over everything. It was so sweet to see everything through his eyes!
Last week also included St. Patrick’s Day so we went with friends to our favorite place to celebrate… Patrick’s! You can read a full review from a couple of years ago here. If you are in Memphis and want the best sandwich ever… you need to go to Patrick’s and order the Mempho. It is my absolute favorite and unreasonably delicious. (see blog post linked above for photos and description).
The weekend was mostly spent working on building the bar stools for our kitchen. We are so close to finished with this project which is just super exciting! The plan for tonight is to stain & paint them (we’re going two-tone again!) and hopefully they will be finished this week! 🙂
Saturday night we played Balderdash with friends and as it turns out… I’m not half bad at it. I even managed to win (though barely). The last time I played in college I was definitely not good at it so I was excited to redeem myself. 😉
Have you played Balderdash? Did you enjoy it?
Do you have a favorite place to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?
