Oktoberfest

Friday, October 8, 2010

Happy Friday Friends! Some fun--and yet relaxing--activities planned here in Music City this weekend... cannot wait to peace out to work and head home to partake in some fun festivities:

Grocer Store Stock-Up..yes, I am a nerd. I LOVE to go grocery shopping... and Jeff says I am a weirdo because I refuse to let him put our items on the belt because I organize them into sections: fruits/veggies, dry goods, frozen items/refrigerated, etc--can we say OCD??
No, I'm not German, but this weekend is the celebrated Oktoberfest here in Nashville and I am hoping to get to take a little visit to Germantown... great food, beer in steins, beautiful weather, and local merchants--count me in!
We're also hosting a chili/football party at our house tomorrow with some of our friends...can't wait to see what the boys have cooked up in their crock pots, while us girls have focused our efforts on appetizers and dessert--recipes to follow next week!
UT/Georgia Matchup...though I'm not physically in Athens this weekend, my heart can't help but reminisce to when us girls would travel to Athens for some football, UGA the bulldog sightings, Nowhere Bar, and Little Italy pizza--GO VOLS!!
 And then on Sunday morning we are FINALLY headed back to church... it feels like ages since we've been to our worship services because out being out of town and other obligations. I can't wait to get back to business and focus my attention on what really matters.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

  1. That sounds like a fabulous weekend!! Even the grocery shopping ;) Don't worry- I am completely crazy about how the groceries are organized too! Especially in the cart... not as much on the belt because I know the bagger will mess it all up :)

    Enjoy the weekend!

  8. OMG I just went crazy on my bf the other day he just kept throwing everything on the belt and I told him it's easier if I can organize it while it gets bagged because the frozen is with frozen, refrigerated, dry etc! Glad I'm not the only crazy one!!

  11. I do the same thing at the grocery store! And I am usually as laid back as they come, but if you put my chips in with my frozen stuff I will come unglued! I like to look at it as I'm being more efficient... If all the cold stuff is together, it's easier to put away! lol
