Week of Fun 2011: Day 3

9 Fruits
This morning we had a not so fun trip to the mechanic to get the A/C in Billy's car fixed.  But the mechanic is in Franklin and a smoothie place called 9 Fruits is in Franklin, so I was excited.  I had one of these at a girls event at my church last spring and I haven't stopped thinking about it since then.  So good!  Totally beats Smoothie King. *cough* tasteslikechemicals  

9 Fruits only uses fruit, pure juice and yogurt.  What a novel concept.

It's also neat because the name means the  9 “fruits of the spirit” in the Bible: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self Control. 

Ahem...excuse Billy's chest hair and the deeeeeep V.  I usually don't let him wear it in public.  :)

Edgehill Village
Edgehill is a little up-and-coming area of town near Music Row that has new little boutiques, stores, and restaurants.  Super cute.  We stopped into Taco Mamacita's for lunch.

Ryman Auditorium
We've had the privilege of seeing a few shows at the Ryman, but today we took a self-guided tour.  This building has such a neat history.  It was fun to learn about how it began as a church, how it closed for over 20 years and then was remodeled and reopened.  It has such a warm, welcoming vibe inside.  Definitely an awesome venue to see a show.

Bon Iver's crew was setting up for a show tonight.

McKay's Used Books
I could spend hours in McKay's.  Billy on the other hand, does not have the same love....but he'll tolerate going there.  It's like a huge organized garage sale of books, CD's and DVD's.  I love a good bargain.  I scored some sweet deals on some educational books.  $3 for a Schmoker book in perfect condition worth $29.  Come on!

Tayst is a fancy pants restaurant that we could only semi-afford because of a Groupon.  It's the first and only certified "green" restaurant because the only get food from small local farmers with no pesticides and they go to great lengths to recycle, compost and all of that good stuff.  That's why they charge the dollah billz, y'all.  Super yummy, though.  It was a fun, romantic date-night.
