I know it has been a while since my last post. October went by so fast. Every time I tried to blog I just couldn't come up with anything I wanted to talk about. Since a few things have gone on during this month I won't bore you with all the details. I'll just share our latest adventure!

Last weekend Nick and I both took Friday off so we could get an early start to Mississippi on Thursday in order to go to Memphis on Friday.
We met my parents there, and enjoyed a wonderful little vacation. That afternoon we walked around downtown Memphis. The past couple of trips to Memphis, we have not arrived until late. It was fun to walk around and see Memphis in the daylight. We also went to have a drink at the Peabody, and we enjoyed watching the ducks. Click here if you don't know the tradition of the ducks. Friday night we ate at the restaurant Flight. This restaurant was interesting in the way you could order your food. If you wanted some soup, you could get a bowl of soup, or you could get a flight of soup. You could order one entree, or you could order a flight of food. This theme carried on from drinks to dessert. Let me now explain what a flight is. An entree flight is when you can order 3 small plates of food instead of one large entree. The wine flights included 3, two ounce glasses of different wines (one normal size glass contains 6 oz).

I ordered the soup flight, it included 3 small bowls of seafood gumbo, mushroom bisque, and lobster chowder. It was great! I could try all three soups and not over eat at the beginning of the meal. Then I did not order a full flight, but I ordered 2 small plates. One of shrimp and grits and the other was a fish dish. The servings were just right. If you do not want little plates you could just order one entree. All the food was very good. Take a look at Nick's flight: pork, quail, and duck. I think that is what he ordered .Oh well, it was 3 different meats. All three came with their own sides as well.

After Flight we strolled around until it was time to go to the Orpheum (the theater in Memphis). We went to see Wicked! We had been looking forward to this for a long time. Wicked was great! And we watched it on Halloween! It always amazes me how much they can do on stage with all the props, costumes, and music. I love the Wicked soundtrack! Is it weird I liked the soundtrack years before actually seeing the play?

After a wonderful night in Memphis, we headed to Oxford Saturday morning to watch the Auburn Tigers play!!

We enjoyed the Grove.

We enjoyed great food. See Doc serving up some etouffe!

Bibba's Cake

After grovin' all day the tigers pulled out a victory!

Cam (#2) for Heisman!Notice all the seats are empty except for the Auburn sections. War Eagle! I hope it is not another month until my next post, but I can't promise anything!


  1. I hope it's not another month too. I absolutely love your posts. Great photos and it looks like it was a wonderful weekend!

  2. Great pictures. We enjoyed the weekend too. Wicked was interesting. It was humorous and entertaining but a little on the dark side. I am still trying to decide where I rank it among my list of favorite performances.Auburn's football team on the other hand doesn't seem to have a dark side. I would love to see them in the national championship game vs. Oregon. We'll see. They just need to win a few more games before then. War Eagle back at you.
