That time we went to Tennessee

Time to "throw it back"...isn't that what Thursdays are for? Oops... I'll make it the new Tuesday ;)

One random Thursday in 2011, Caleb was talking to his brother/sister in law, and they wanted to know if we wanted to go to Nashville with them and catch the away Bengals game vs the Titans. Caleb then asked me if he thought we should go for the weekend with them (at this time, I was going through a sort of rough patch in my life... read here, so I needed a fun weekend away). So of course I was totally game for that.

We headed out, did our usual gas station stop... picked up some delicious bite size snacks, and were on our way to good ole' Nashville!



The road-trip was spent listening to the 78 random CD's from 2004 on that Erin had in her car, and we loved every last second of it. Screaming to Papa Roach, Chris Brown, Katy Perry, etc.

We immediately checked into our hotel, grabbed lunch at the Hardrock Cafe and spent the rest of the evening running around Nashville and taking ridiculous pictures of each other, you know... what we do best.






Then we took (what would have been a long walk) a free bus ride over to the Gaylord Opryland Hotel and traipsed around inside!



After a ridiculously fun night, we woke up early, grabbed breakfast and got ready for our Cincinnati Bengals to beat down on the Titans.









We ended up winning this game so you know we had to celebrate by running down the streets of Nashville like crazies.


This year, once another normal football season is upon us again (cant wait!) we plan on making a long weekend road-trip to Chicago.

Moral of this story? The four of us are basically some fun people to party with. Hehe

  8. So jealous that you live within driving distance to Nashville AND Chicago! (OK, I guess I could drive but that would take FOREVER.) And how awesome is it that God placed such a fun weekend in your life at a time when you really needed it. Perfection!
