My favorite things

I got to spend last week in Knoxville with a few of my favorite people doing a few of my favorite things. A quick rundown.

Monday night I went to my favorite restaurant of all time, the Melting Pot, with two of my favorite Knoxville girlies, Erin and Julia. If you have never been to the Melting Pot, you have no idea what you are missing. It is a fondue restaurant where you cook your own food at your table. It was one of my first dates with Nate and we always head there for special occasions.

On Thursday night I headed to Sundown in the City with my favorite Knoxville couple AP and MP to see one of my new favorite artists, Kate Voegele. You might remember her as Mia on the last season of One Tree Hill. She kind of reminds me of a female Jack Johnson; just really easy stuff to listen to. And she was just as good in person as she is on her CD.

Then on Friday I got to do one of my most favorite things ever. I got an ashiatsu bar massage from my favorite masseuse Rebecca. I have tried lots of massage therapists in the last year and none comes even close to what this girl can do. I try to see her every time I am in Knoxville which is no easy feat because she is ridiculously busy (the sign of a very good massage therapist!). Ashiatsu bar is a type of massage where the therapist gets on top of the table and uses their feet to give a deep tissue massage. It is painful and I am sore for days afterwards but it really does the trick for my chronic headaches. This type of massage is not for relaxation or the faint of heart. But it's my favorite!

On Saturday, two of our favorite friends got married. Amber and Sami had a beautiful, fun and totally 'them' wedding. It was so great to see so many of our friends and hang out for a few hours.

And finally, I got to go to Sonic not once, not twice, not three times, but FOUR times during happy hour! My favorite Sonic drink is Cherry Limeade. They advertise Sonic here on a daily basis but the closest one is at least two hours away. I am always drooling at the TV every time the commercial comes on.

Now I am back home and on my own until Friday, while Nate gets to take his own business trip to California. Hopefully I can use this week to catch up much needed sleep and a little bit of laundry before we hit the Red Sox game on Saturday!

I have to second the Melting Pot. John and I LOVE it! And I need to head out to Sundown before it ends for the season. It sounds like you had a great time here!
