My Big Weekend in Knoxville...Singing, Eating and Having Fun!

This weekend I was invited to sing in Knoxville, Tennessee for Knoxville Christian Center's annual "All American BBQ." I sing patriotic songs, the men of the church work all night to grill fantastic barbecue, and the ladies make fabulous sides and desserts. It's one of my favorite times of the year!

My name on the marquee! Neat!

And how cool is it to have your pic on the event advertising?

This is a picture taken a few years ago when we used the choir. 
If you love your country, patriotic music is so moving.

Here I am singing "God Bless America" this year...

This year my husband and daughter didn't go (he had to work, and she wanted to spend the weekend at Grammy's), so I took along my friend Crystal and we made it a girl's weekend.

We ate really good food, slept late, listened to 80's music on Sirius satellite radio and being girls, talked and talked and talked. It was fun!

Fried green tomatoes and cheese grits with two types of gravy at Puleo's of my all-time favorite places to eat!

I also got to meet up with my good friend Tammy from my college days. She made me download an app to my iPhone against my will so that I could watch Jimmy Swaggert podcasts (she loves some Jimmy Swaggert!). ha! She's a hoot!

I even had really good hair days! I'm really feelin' the curly, blonde do I've been sportin' this summer....

I had a great time!

Next trip to Knoxville will hopefully be this fall when we take little G to her first Tennessee Vols football game! Daddy is super excited about that!
