>Walkin’ in Memphis

>Joshua and I got to take a long weekend and travel to Memphis for his college roommate’s wedding last weekend.  We were so glad that we were there to support Becca and Aaron as they made the leap into the married world.  The wedding was great and the reception was a sweet tooth’s dream.  There was an ice cream sundae bar, cake, and a chocolate fountain.

There were a few things that we had on our itinerary other than the weddings…and all events included food of some type.  You can’t go to Memphis without eating barbeque..and though I’ve grown a palette for Texas barbeque…you just can’t do better than Memphis barbeque.  We were able to check that off of our list on Friday at the rehearsal dinner.

The next thing on our list of things to do was go to Jerry’s Sno Cones.  Jerry’s is simply one of the best treats I’ve ever had in my life…perfect for a hot Memphis afternoon.  Jerry’s is tucked away in a neighborhood and you can’t search for it in your GPS.  These are no typical sno cones…in fact, they have a “supreme” which has soft serve ice cream ON TOP of the sno cone.  If you are ever in Memphis, you should definitely head to Jerry’s…you will not be disappointed!

This is my Sno Cone…the name of it is “John Deere” and you can tell why…it is GREEN!
Joshua got the “Ninja Turtle” which was also bright blue-green.

The last 2 things we wanted to do were go to Huey’s for burgers and go downtown and meet up with friends on Beale Street.  Huey’s was delicious…and we went downtown afterwards and had a great time.  It was great to meet up with some of Joshua’s fraternity brothers, some of whom we hadn’t seen in 2 years (since our wedding)!  We went to Alfred’s and Silky O’Sullivan’s for a few drinks and then headed back to the hotel for a good nights sleep.

All in all, we had a wonderful trip and we are so happy for Aaron and Becca Smith!  Congratulations you two!
