I got to spend an entire weekend in Nashville with two of my greatest friends! I am still coming off of a weekend-high. A quick weekend getaway is exactly what I needed with some of my ladies!
Angie and I met up and drove down together on Friday, and the time change worked in our advantage as we got to Nashville around 9:30! The three of us spent entirely too much time hugging and catching up, but Lyndsie made sure we made it to Cookout to get some shakes...um, SO delish!!
We actually hit the sheets pretty early, because we knew we wanted to get an early start to our day Saturday - which we did! We woke up and got ready together, which took us all back to college. It was awesome. We headed to downtown Franklin and hit up some of the cutest local boutiques. I snagged some new sunglasses because my eyes were dying, we headed to Frothy Monkey to try the famous fruit tea, and traipsed around eyeing everything.
After a couple hours we got hungry so we waited entirely too long for the town's best chicken - Hattie B's. We took it to go and went to a local lookout called Love Circle and had ourselves a little picnic.
We headed to another strip of stores and I finally got to meet some of Lyndsie's Nashville friends! We, of course, stopped for ice cream at Jeni's!
|I had way too much appreciation for this mischief.|
We headed back to Lyndsie's to watch episode 1 of Fuller House. None of us were expecting much because we all heard it was so terrible. Ummm. We kind of loved it. Sure, it was cheesy, but so were the originals! I also loved that it was taped infront of a live audience, so the reactions/laughter was totally real.
We dolled up for a fun night out and surprised Angie with a mini early-bday celebration! She's halfway to 50!!!!
We may or may not have also enjoyed Sprinkles where we had a late night cupcake-fest!
After this we headed to a dueling piano event and it was kind of the coolest thing ever. I expected something totally different than what it was - but it was amazing. The pianist played/sang a TON of 90's songs, and my girls and I had way too much fun dancing the night away singing some of our favorite classics!
We didn't get to bed until about 2AM, but we still woke up for an early breakfast - to make sure we maximized our time together. Lyndsie slaved away in the kitchen making chocolate chip pancakes, eggs and fresh fruit! Is their little dining area not the cutest thing you've ever seen!?!
Goodbyes are always dumb, so we made them quick, and promised it wouldn't be so long until we all can get together. I am so lucky to have these gals in my life! Thanks for hosting us, Lynds!!! It was a blast and a half.
Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! I'm feeling refreshed and ready to tackle this week! I hope you are, too!
