Bill and Amy
Peggy's Bed & Breakfast has had its first visitors!  My friends, Bill and Amy,  needed to be in Birmingham on Saturday. After their event there, they rented a car and made the 3-hour drive to Franklin.  Janet and Nick were also here to help me with the sewing room move.  Everyone was tired Saturday night so we stayed in and I cooked dinner.  It's been a long time since I cooked that type of meal for friends so it was great fun.

Sunday morning Bill took us all out to breakfast at the Loveless Cafe before Janet and Nick headed back to Huntsville.  We all ordered different things and there were no complaints.  The biscuits on our table disappeared pretty quickly!  We did not say no to refills.  Amy ordered the most unusual breakfast - pulled pork on pancakes with an egg on each side.  It was the breakfast that kept on giving.  She took the leftovers home and we snacked on the pulled pork later in the day.  I had the last of it for dinner Monday night.  Big portions!!!

Franklin Square
Bill had been to Franklin about 20 years ago but it has changed a lot since then.  We drove around the Brentwood/Franklin area to see if he remembered where he had been and to see all the changes.  The next stop was a walk around the Franklin square and coffee at Starbucks.

It was dark!!!
After a rest stop (and nap) at my place, we got dressed and hit the town.  Amy had done her research!  We went to a bar called "Patterson House" that has been written up and recommended by Southern Living.   They are known for their "classic cocktails".  After drinks and snacks, we headed to our next stop.  Amy noticed the "Bluebird Cafe" as we were driving by so we stopped and listened to music.  It was packed and we are cheap so we just stood outside.  The first performer was amazing.  I hope Bill and Amy can remember her name.

Monday morning I actually cooked breakfast before Amy and Bill left.  It was so much fun having them visit.  Bill just barely made his goal of being my first visitor.  My sister and friend, Ann, will be here March 12th.

Nick and Janet were a great help in the sewing room move.  Unfortunately I didn't think to take pictures but it was hard work and deserves a post of its own - just as soon as I get the room  cleaned up:)

Hey, it's good to have fun visitors who help with work and also arrive with itinerary ideas :) Nice that the latest of our bedeviling storms held off, too.
