It has again been a minute as I fail at this whole blogging business.  Saturday I went to see my family because it was the only time I would be able to in the foreseeable future. The drive to NC was super long but uneventful. I got in around 7:30 and ate all the bad stuff for me at The Sandpiper:

I went to see my Granny on Sunday and headed back to ATL.  This drive felt like the longest ride ever and I had to stop in SC at a Rest Stop to take a nap (yes I know this is unsafe, but it was this or fall asleep on the road).  Monday morning, even though we had packed everything, it seemed to take forever to pack the stuff we had been living with it was like with every trip to the car I walked to the house and there was more stuff!!! Man I really despise moving.

Then it was time to close, which took some time, and Doug learned that there is literally no important things open on Monday (why it's a business day?!). While he was doing this I went to Lenox to pick up the IPad Pro.  My iPad mini was on the fritz and it was time for new one.  After this, we met Amee & Matt at Nuevo Laredo since our fave El Mexacano was closed on Monday. We got on the road to take the beautiful drive to Nashville. We got into our Air B&B super late and crashed.  Tuesday we got up and were starving so decided to go to a place called Biscuit Love. DUDE, this place was amazing! 

We started with some Bonuts (Fried Biscuit Dough, Lemon Marscapone, Blueberry Compote) which were fucking AMAZING!  Doug got the Princess (a Nasheville Hot chicken biscuit) with a side of Chronic Bacon, and I got an egg and cheese biscuit.

We had just a couple of hours left so we visited the Andrew Jackson Hermitage.  During the tour of the mansion, we saw a bed where Davy Crockett, Sam Houston, and Marquis De Lafayette stayed.  Everyone oooohhed and aaahhhed over the Davy & Sam but I was excited about seeing a bed that the Marquis slept in.  If you are reading this, you probably know I'm a HUGE history buff and am currently reading/audio booking a book about Lafayette by Sarah Vowell.

As soon as we were done we took the boring ass drive to St Louis--guys, that drive blows!  I got to drive through 4 states (TN, KY, Il, and MO) which was cool but, dude, that drive blows.  We got to Pacific, MO (the suburb where Doug's family lives), checked into our hotel, and got food.  Our dogs have never stayed in a hotel and were little barking machines, so we got a call that there were complaints and 2 guests had to be moved so I've been stuck in the hotel since then trying to train them how to not bark at everything they hear. We have a filled next few days with Doug's family stuff so we may end up boarding them starting tomorrow or getting a sitter from Rover.com.  

Sorry this post has been boring--driving is boring :(.  I'm currently in the grand metropolis of Pacific, MO population 7K. Fun.

Cheers until tomorrow with more fun from booming Pacific, MO!
