Having friends in town really helps focus on how much you love your city because you want to show off the best places and spaces that you love so much about your very own city! I got to play hostess this weekend and felt like I too had gone out of town with a weekend full of nothing but fun in my very own Memphis, TN. These are my top picks for a fabulous girls weekend that didn't break the bank! 1.) Lunch at Acre - gorgeous rustic modern atmosphere perfect for catching up with an old friend over amazing fare! After lunch, we hit up Sheffields in Collierville and then Saddle Creek for a little window shopping and a failed jeans finding venture. 2.) Saturday we took our lunch leftovers to Shelby Farms (along with everyone else in Memphis, apparently) to enjoy an unseasonably perfect February afternoon. 3.) Midtown was the next part of town to hit up where we browsed around a bunch of shops and tasted beer at the Growler (we split a tasting round of 4 generous samples for $6! ) and had dinner at Chiwawa. Memphis is killing it, y'all! With so many hot new places, it was really hard to narrow down a sampling of the city. It's making me really excited about spring!!!!
