Nashville Bachelorette Weekend

Hello there, everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. I spent mine in Nashville for a bachelorette party. We had so much fun! 

FRIDAY:

My friend and I hit the road as soon as I was off of work, grabbed Jersey Mike’s subs for dinner, and made it to the airbnb house around 10. We spent that evening getting to know all the girls and just hang out. We talked until 2 am then crashed hard.

SATURDAY:

My friend and I were the first to get up, so we made a Starbucks run for some much needed coffee. Once everyone else got up we all got dressed in our “Bride’s Besties” t-shirts. We ate breakfast at a local coffee shop and it was delicious. 

Vegetable frittata and an almond milk cappuccino. Yum!!!

After breakfast, we walked to our first activity of the day: the pedal tavern. It was an absolute BLAST!! The driver/bartender was fun and had a great music playlist. We pedaled throughout the city and were able to stop a few times for pictures. 

I highly recommend this!

After the pedal tavern, we stopped for a quick lunch before heading back to the house. We took naps (yes, we are all old), smacked, and watched Wedding Crashers.

We all woke up and started getting ready around 5. We went to dinner at The Southern and the food was delicious!

My dinner was gumbo, a salad with tons of veggies and goat cheese, and grilled asparagus. We all also split bread and an appetizer. 

After dinner, we walked to The Florida Georgia Line House. The basement is a dance floor with a bar and the second floor is a restaurant with live music. The third floor had some seating and a rooftop, but we didn’t venture up there.

Next, we went to Tootsies, which was so crowded that it was impossible to have any space. It was crazy!

Last, we went to AJ’s (Alan Jackson’s) bar and it was my favorite! It wasn’t crowded, lots of seating, and the live music was fantastic!! Definitely more my cup of tea than getting shoved by strangers. 

Random pictures from the evening. 

SUNDAY:

Us early birds (3 of us) woke up and got Starbucks of course! We drank coffee as the others started waking up, and ate an egg bake that one of the girls made. We all chatted before packing and hitting the road!

My friend and I wanted a healthy lunch so we stopped for Panera and it was awesome. 

After driving a while, we stopped at a rest stop in Kentucky and saw the most random thing: a man bottle feeding his baby llama. For real, guys! It was so cute and he let us play with him. 

I mean….

When I finally got home I unpacked, played with my cats, heated up lasagna and almond bread, then sat to watch my shows! My husband got home from work a couple hours later and I was so happy to see him!

It was a great weekend! 

Now I have to get ready, but I can’t wait to catch up on all of your posts!

Have a wonderful day!

With love,

Nashville Girls’ Trip

Good morning, everyone!! It has been crazy waking up this week and not going to work. Summer break = perks of teaching. My co-worker and I celebrated the end of the year by taking a road trip to Nashville. My cousin lives there so we stayed with her and she showed us around. It was great having an insider because her suggestions  (what to do, where to eat, shop, etc) were awesome! Here is a little recap!

We arrived on Sunday (mid day) and our first stop was Broadway, where we had a drink a listened to some live music.

Stop two was a walk along the Pedestrian Bridge. Hello beautiful views!!

After the bridge, we walked around and saw the music city walk of fame which was so awesome.

Here is one of many! Others include, Elvis, Vince Gill, Alan Jackson, etc.

The Grand Ole Opry tour was next. It was fantastic!! They took us all around and we even went into some dressing rooms. We also got to go on stage. I was like a kid in a candy store. For me, it was a life-long dream fulfilled!

Our last stop was dinner at The Tavern. Guys, this place was bomb!! We all split the buffalo cauliflower, and I had the kale salad with grilled salmon. Both were AMAZING. If you ever go to Nashville, I recommend this 100 percent.

Monday started with a hot and muggy 3 mile run, followed by a much deserved Starbucks trip!!

After getting cleaned up and hanging out a while, we went to brunch at an adorable place called Fido! YUM!! We all split a beet muffin  (so good), and enjoyed lattes and cappuccinos. My main meal was an egg & cheese sandwich with veggie sausage on a wheat bagel.

After brunch,  we did some shopping because it was pouring rain! The evening was spent seeing some live music from Rodney Atkins and Kip Moore in the middle of town. So fun!! Then a few drinks and music at Tootsies.

We finshed our evening with dinner at Clyde’s on Church. We split the brisket nachos  (omggg fantastic, especially after a few drinks), and I got the kale salad with chicken  (tasty, but not as good as the one from the night before).

Well, there you have it!!! I hope I could give some good recommendations. We had a great trip and can’t wait to go back!

Have a great day!

With love,

Carly
