Who’s ready for summer? Not only is the season changing, we’re noticing a lot of new activity in our beloved city and I’m here to help you navigate it all while becoming your best self.

I kick off today’s show by telling you what’s still free to do in Nashville this summer while showing you how to budget for those summer trips and experiences. Next, we’ll help you get ready for swimsuit season and beyond with experts who will teach us how to eat to boost metabolism in menopause and perimenopause.

Then I’ll give you a sneak peek into Nashville Ballet’s first live performance since the pandemic, which also happens to be Ascend amphitheater’s first event back as well!

Finally, I’m speaking with the mom of one of Duck Dynasty’s stars to tell you how you can be a Rockstar Grandparent.

So toss aside whatever excuses have been holding you back and get ready to be educated, entertained and inspired because THIS is The Sami Cone Show for May 2021…

Episode 21 of The Sami Cone Show aired on Friday, May 14, 2021 at 1 PM, and re-aired on Saturday, May 15 at Noon. Scroll to the bottom of the post to watch the show in its entirety.

Free Nashville Summer Fun

With all the changes happening around town, I’m walking you through how we can start enjoying Music City again this summer! Let’s look at what’s free and how to budget for those unexpected expenses summer can bring.

Eating to Boost Metabolism

I connect with Alli from Nourished Routes to learn how to eat to boost our metabolism and lose weight, especially in perimenopause and menopause.

Nashville Ballet First Live Performance

The Nashville Ballet will perform the first large-scale live arts performance since the pandemic at Ascend Amphitheater this weekend and we’re getting an inside look.

Rockstar Grandparent

Whether you’re a grandparent or not yet, you’ll learn how to light the way and leave a legacy for the next generation with my friend and author, Chrys Howard.

Before I Go, I Need You to Know: Embrace Your Calling

This weekend as I was about to do laundry, mow the yard before church and do all the things I felt like I shouldn’t have to do on a Sunday, I chose to be grateful…

Grateful that I am able to be a mom, able to do these things, able to have a home to take care of and above all, that God has seen me fit to give me people (aka kids) that depend on me.

While those things can easily delay me, I never want them to distract me from embracing my calling:

I am a writer, a speaker and a teacher and I’m not going to wait for someone to tell me I’m allowed to do those things, for a job to pay me to do those things or for time to magically open up to do those things.


I want to encourage each of you RIGHT NOW to do the things you are called to do, not what someone else is telling you to do.

Don’t wait for someone to open a door for you.
Do what you know you have to do.
Know that you are enough.
Know that you are the RIGHT MOM & the right person for this season & this situation.

I want you to say it, I want you to believe it and I want you to be encouraged and equipped to walk in that truth today.

The Lilly Pulitzer Winona Stretch Dress in Bermuda Blue Fishful Thinking

I’ve been wanting a Winona Stretch Dress from Lilly Pulitzer for a long time now. In some ways it’s the perfect dress: fun, flowy and flattering.

But there has always been a fit issue that’s kept me from buying it in the past. When I try on the Large (my normal size in Lilly dresses), the chest area pulls where they’ve put a gold hook. If I put on the XL, the chest fits perfectly, but the rest of the dress becomes tent-like (and no one wants that).

However, when I tried on the Winona Stretch Dress in Bermuda Blue Fishful Thinking, the fit was improved and the print was just perfect…so I got it!

I always love visiting my friends at Lilly Pulitzer at The Mall at Green Hills for helping me know what will both look best on camera and fit in with my active lifestyle.

As soon as I walked into Kendra Scott Green Hills and showed Marisa and her team the dress I was wearing this month, they knew EXACTLY the jewelry that would complement the look. And as soon as I saw the new earrings from Kendra’s summer collection, I knew I had to have them!

Here are quick links to all the new Kendra Scott summer jewelry pieces I wore on this month’s show:
