out in lexington

visiting Brittany MacGregorNow that I don’t have a care in the world, I picked up and went to Lexington for the weekend to visit with my oldest best bud Brittany MacGregor.  There was no holding back.

I got down there Friday night and after gabbing over a few glasses of sauvignon blanc, we headed out to dinner at Table Three Ten.  This spot was awesome and has a seasonal menu.  There was a mussels special so of course I begged that we order.  That, plus some artisan cheese and white wine, made for the perfect little dinner.  Great bites, good chatting, and a super sweet atmosphere was exactly the kind of start that we needed to kick off the awesome weekend we had.

      I would go there every single day and get the mocha one with cinnamon…I literally thought about it my entire drive home.
