The Show was Deen-Licious!!!!

Well, I couldn't wait to get the pix of tonight's show. Paula, Kat and I left town around 12:00 and headed into the Boro to get some lunch. That in itself was an experience!!! We were going to hit up a little place called "Through the Grapevine" that Jenn had told mom and I about. Mom ate there last week and she loved it, so we thought that would be nice to go somewhere a little different. We pull in the parking lot and were soooo excited because it wasn't busy. Come to find out, it was CLOSED for a Private Party. So, plan B was the Front Porch. Now, this place is as cute was can be on the outside, great parking and no line, so in we go!!! We waited about 10 minutes on a table. By this time it is almost 1:00 and we were trying to get in and out quickly! So, we sit and wait, and wait and wait. No one even came to get our drink order and it is HOT in that place, so we leave and go to Plan C. We end up at the Main Street Grill. We walk right in, get seated and are glad that the A/C is working! This turned out to be a great choice, with the exception of the Lemonade that I ordered. It was not so good, but not a big deal. By this time, it is a little after 2 and we are off to Nashville. We got there around 2:45 and after parking we found the newly restored Hermitage Hotel and we were pretty sure this is where Paula was staying. Can you say "Stalkers"?? Kathy said that this was on her list of things to see, so we went in and checked out the 19 million dollar renovation. It is absolutely gorgeous. Picture opportunity!!!! There were 2 ladies there getting tea served to them in the lobby and they were kind enough to make our pix and we gladly returned the favor. If you are ever in downtown Nashville, you really need to check this place out! It is worth your time. After we left there, we were off to TPAC and still had plenty of time to check out the souvenirs and find our seats, which by the way were excellent! It was time for the show to begin and we were so anxious for Paula to come out. The audience rose to their feet and applauded like crazy when she made her entrance. She was absolutely hilarious, as was her husband, Michael. They are the cutest couple. This show turned out to be much more than a cooking show; she is truly an entertainer who loves her fans and interacts with them so well. You can't help but love her! I am going to try out her Mac and Cheese recipe next weekend for my Granny Ma's birthday party. Hey, who knows, I may actually be inspired to cook! Thanks girls for a wonderful day. I won't ever forget it!!!!!
