..a mini vay-cay..

So I got to spend last weekend in Knoxville, TN. Jeff had a 20 hour layover there on Saturday for work, and my cousin Jason just happens to live there! So I went down Friday to spend time with Jason, had some WONDERFUL Thai food (love me some drunken noodles!) and had a blast watching our favorite movie, Tootsie. Jeff and I spent Saturday wandering around downtown, visiting various little shops, like the Chocolate Factory (I'm female, I HAD to go!) and finding lots of outside art. Check out the yummy Bonbons we got below (Champagne, Kahlua and Tiramisu!) We had lunch at this great little cafe called The Tomato Head.

Now, dinner gets its own paragraph :) Jeff and I love love love sushi, and we eat it a LOT. Every time we visit a new city, we try to find the best place to get some. Before now, the best we've ever had is from this restaurant in Memphis... no longer :) Would you believe that the best sushi I've ever had was made by a spiky haired, big earring-wearing, chain wallet-toting American guy? :) I'm totally serious.. this kid couldn't have been older than 35, but boy does he know his stuff! He is the head sushi chef at Nama Sushi Bar. I could spend 30 minutes talking about how good it was, but you really just have to eat it to find out. If you ever do get a chance to go, I recommend the Royale roll and the Pizza roll :)
