Week of Fun 2011: Day 6

After shampooing my hair 4 times to get the hairspray out of my '80s bangs from last night, we headed back to East Nashville for an awesome breakfast at Marche Artisan Foods.  Haha...I told you that everything in East Nashville is "artisan".  Everything here is fresh, local, and really delicious.  There are tons of bread and pastries that I would have LOVED to eat...but no g-free treats.  The frittata was great, though.

Just a tad humid in Nashville today.  Haha.  :)

Old Made Good
OMG in East Nashville is my favorite new store.  It is filled with little handmade and repurposed treasures.  It's cute...with an edge.  And definitely a sense of humor.  Great furniture, clothes, handbags, jewelry, lamps, art, etc.  Follow their fun blog at

Me with Kate, one of the co-owners.  Words to live by behind us.  Lol.  (Sorry, Mom).

Fontanel Farm
About 20 minutes outside of town is Fontanel.  Fontanel includes a farm, restaurant, outdoor amphitheater and a mansion formerly owned by Barbara Mandrell.  We went to meet our friends the Sparks' for dinner.  Zac was playing bass at the Farmhouse restaurant.  The trees, hills, and view is really beautiful.  The weather cooled down a little bit and it was so quiet and peaceful out there.  We loved it.  We didn't really love the food at the Farmhouse, though...sorry Barbara.

Hot & Cold
We ended our Week of Fun at a new little place in Hillsboro Village, Hot & Cold.  It serves Bongo Java Coffee, Las Paletas, Jeni's Ice Cream, and lots of other hot/cold treats.  We had a fun spot by the window to people watch and talk about the great week we've had together.  Only a few more days until it's back to a schedule and daily grind.  I hope you enjoyed reading about our shenanigans this week!
