Flap Jacks: The Pancake Pantry

Hey Everyone! Hope you all are doing well! We are so close to Friday, I am nearly jumping our of my skin from excitement. I can NOT wait to relax, sit back, and drink some wine. I am doing some adulting this week, but I’ll post on that experience once I get to it. If you are in the Nashville area, you know that there so many new restaurants to try and various new places to visit. When I go out, I like to give take pictures, detail my experience and share with you. Just in case you are traveling to Tennessee, or maybe already in Nashville and looking for new places to eat. Last Saturday, Erika, Jaria and I had a mini girls day. Initially, we bantered back and forth on where we wanted to go but we narrowed it now to Biscuit Love. Since none of us had ever dined at The Pancake Factory, we figured we would give it a go! The rave reviews and the lengthy line in front of the establishment let us know that we made a solid decision.

Just so you know, I am a waffle girl at heart. Any friend of mine will tell you that I am diehard #teamwaffle. Still, since we stood in line for over an hour, and I spent nearly 30 minutes fighting to find a parking space, I was dedicated to trying the pancakes.The menu holds a long list of interestingly designed pancakes; some pancakes were spicy for those who wanted a kick, and others were on the sweeter side for people, like me, who have an intense sweet tooth. Erika got one of the pancake sets that was geared towards people who were desiring a healthy option. Jaria got these really awesome hash browns covered in cheese along with powered sugar covered pancakes. Lastly, I opted for the wheat, powered covered pancakes covered in pecans. With the pancakes, I had this hearty, beef patty, with scrambled eggs covered in cheese and mushrooms. Sadly, I enjoyed the beef patty and eggs better than the pancakes. This could be because I am #teamwaffle. I’ve had better pancakes at IHOP. Despite the long lines and difficulty parking, I would recommend the restaurant to others. Our waiter was sweet. The cooking staff boosted our egos by flirting with us. Flattery doesn’t hurt every once in awhile. If you are a waffle connoisseur, just order the waffles with the breakfast options and call it a day. 
Here’s a pictures of my gals and I taken by a friend we made while standing in line.

I took my cornrows down on Friday with the expectation of getting my hair washed and rebraided for Easter. Typically, I visit my local Barber & Style college for that because I an cost efficient. The stylist at the college  that I frequent are predominantly African American.  I like assisting them as the develop their skill. I’ve seen so many of them graduate! Anyway, no one was able to take care of me on Friday, so I rocked my afro all weekend.I feel like a foxy diva when I dawn my afro. Like instant militant vibes exude from my body. As I unbraided my hair, I kept thinking that the revolution will not be televised.

Later that day, we continued our girl gang excursion at The Mall at Green Hills, where i had difficulty exercising monetary restraint at Sephora. I did get a cute makeup bag from Charming Charlie’s for $7 bucks! It has a pretty blue and white, floral print. You know how addicted to prints and patterns I am.

Look at our lipsticks! I ended up buying the lipstick that Erika is wearing. I’ll provide details the next time I wear it. We took Jaria to Sephora to find a cute pink-brown nude color. Cindy was the sales associate that assisted us. She did a beautiful purple ombre on Erika. If you visit the store, Ask for Cindy! She’s a sweetheart.

Are there any places that you would recommend me to try? Have you gone to any of the places that I have reviewed? If so, what was your experience? Drop a comment below!

Until next time,
