A Few More Favorites...

I have to tell you about a few more things that I accidentally left off my favorites post.

1. POTATO. This is a club for parents of twins, triplets, quads, etc. Although there are groups like this all over the US, POTATO holds it's meetings here in Nashville, TN. Not only do they have monthly meetings, special events like zoo outings, and an online email support group, they also have a great consignment sale that is held twice a year. They usually have around 45 consignors and you must be a member to sell, but the public can shop. If you are looking for a double or triple stroller, you are SURE to find one here. Also a great place to finding matching outfits for multiples. Here's the scoop for their next sale which will be held August 8.

2. Painturo's. This great little place to eat is located in Lebanon, Gallatin and Goodlettsville. I have only ate at the Goodlettsville location (right in front of Publix beside Dunkin Donuts). I had to share this awesome place with you because not only are they locally owned, but they have AWESOME food and kids 10 and under EAT FREE all the time. Jonathan swears they have the best Calzone's, I LOVE their spaghetti, and the kids love everything on their kids menu. Their portions are huge, they have great lunch specials and you really can't beat the price! They have no clue who I am so if you mention you saw it on the blog, don't be surprised if they look at you like your nuts!

3. Consigning Time. Yes, I know I've mentioned Julie before, but I have to tell you how impressed I am with her PRINTABLE maps of all the area consignment sales. Print them out and put them on your fridge and then go support your local sales. We are VERY fortunate here in middle TN to have a large number of consignment sales. Did you know that in some parts of the country, people have never even heard of the concept of consignment sales? Of course, we want Encores and More North to be your favorite, but I also want you to shop all these local sales and support their owners. Go visit Julie's site now and print those calendars! Oh, and Julie, come work with us :) You'll love us, I promise (girls, leave comments and tell her how much fun she will have working at Encores North!)

4. Brandon Schell, owner of Cross Driven Construction. We had a leak in our basement at our last house and Brandon was on it and fixed it in no time. If you need any type of home repair, don't hesitate to call him. We've decided he never sleeps and he will do what he says he's going to do.

That's it for now. I'm sure I'll think of more favorites to add later on!
