The Blue Plate - Chattanooga

Last week, Hubby and I had a mini Christmas photo session downtown. Unfortunately, that day was rainy and thirty degrees... We were freezing by the end of it! (Pictures turned out wonderful though) So we ran over to The Blue Plate. We have been wanting to try this place since we got here. Their brunch menu was amazing! I loved the modern atmosphere and that they support local farms and suppliers.

"Contemporary comfort food, fresh drinks and house desserts using homegrown ingredients from local farms, bakeries and ice cream shops."

As soon as I saw the french toast special, I was sold. It was delicious! Hubby had the breakfast burrito, which he thoroughly enjoyed. We, of course, huddled together over some magnificent warm coffee served in clear mugs.

This won't be the last time we visit because they also allow dogs to dine outside with you. Love.

ps- come back next week for photos from our mini session!

Gift Guide For The Men In Your Life

Why must men be so hard to shop for?!

Luckily I've been saving gift ideas that I have come across all year. David & I aren't really doing gifts this year, but I might buy him one or two of these things. They are just too awesome to pass up on gifting!

+ I think this gift is probably my favorite. Every guy in your life will love this! I found Bottle Breacher on the Veterans Day episode of Shark Tank. They offer hand crafted 50 Cal Bottle Openers made by Active Duty service members, Reservists, and Veterans. Made in the USA. Need I say more??

+RED ENVELOPE is full of fabulous gifts. My favorite is that it all can be personalized, which are always the best gifts. These gifts would be great for my beer loving Husband and his man room. Also, there is a great Living Social deal. Get it while it lasts! You could also buy some things for yourself ;)

+Lifetime Leather Co. I love all things personalized & leather! These would make a great gift for the traveling man. There are many other great leather gifts.

+Personalized Scotch/Whiskey Set - A Great gift set for the classic gentleman in your life.

+You can never go wrong with dry rubs/seasonings for the master grill chief.

Happy Shopping! Don't forget to spread some Christmas Cheer amongst the craziness.
