I’ll start this week off with number one! My Jon has always loved John Mulaney and this past semester when he came to visit me at school we watched his Netflix special together. That was all it took for me to be hooked! He is so funny, but he is also very cute which  always helps. My Jon and John have very similar senses of humor. It definitely makes sense that he loves him.  When I was home for spring break Jon brought me breakfast and we waited on the tickets to go live. I’m pretty sure we were the first people in the state to get tickets! We were excited.

We didn’t have a lot of time to get something to eat before the show, so we went to Salsarita’s which was totalllllly fine with me. Build your own tacos are bae. We got to the show and had the best time!  We saw our favorite comedian, John Mulaney.

SO, this brings me to seeing a Minor League Baseball Game.  Jon and I went to see the Chattanooga Lookouts play, but not before having dinner at Sticky Fingers.  Yummmm.  They were down the whole game and won in the last inning (Jon will probably correct me on this later). Honestly, my favorite parts were the slush puppy and the fireworks after the game.  But Jon loves sports, so it makes me happy when he is happy!

I think by this point in our relationship, we were owed a bad date or two.  They weren’t necessarily “bad” dates, but they definitely weren’t picture perfect by any standard.

If you’re local, you know about the huge sunflower field near Ijam’s Nature Center in Knoxville.  It was early July when Jon and I decided to go see them, and there weren’t tons of articles on how to find them yet.  I will admit, I am a bit of a direction snob. It’s really not my fault.  Since I was a small child, my parents would ask ME which way we turned on the 30 minute drive from my house to my grandmas.  It took me one drive to my university (that is 180 miles away) to have the entire drive memorized. I’m good with directions! Anyways my “talent” was failing me this day.  We ended up on a back road where Jon’s belt of his car broke.  We pulled into some low-income housing and I wasn’t sure if I was hearing gun shots or fireworks. Just kidding, it was probably fireworks. But I was scared, nonetheless.  Adding to the problem, there was like one bar of cell phone service where we were.  My nerves were through the roof!  The tow guy came to get Jon’s car and his dad picked us up that day, but we never did make it to the sunflowers.  We now have a running joke, every time we see a flower resembling a sunflower we say “there it is.”

Anyways.

The Sunday before the 4th of July I decided I really wanted to do some baking.  Some good all American patriotic baking.  And we did! I found a super easy recipe to make this patriotic cake roll, and Jon and I had the best time perfecting it.  We also made quesadillas. It was such a fun and easy day!

Last on the list for today’s post, we went to the farmer’s market! Jon says we cheated on this one, but how many Saturdays are we actually free and want to get up early and go to Knoxville or Chattanooga? Not many! We decided to go to Knoxville’s Annual Biscuit Fest, which was so totally fun.  We’re both big biscuit fans, so trying a bunch of biscuits was right up our alley! This event is held downtown and somewhat mixes in with the farmer’s market.  He calls it cheating, because we just stalled through the farmer’s market, it wasn’t what we were there for. Either way, we had a great time.
