|We had to get a picture with the famous bridge from the show, Nashville|
We went to Nashville for Sarah Grace's birthday. It was a blast! She planned everything out, and she did a great job! Sarah, you are now official the "planner" when we go on trips. It was so much fun!
It being my first time to Nashville and all, I was very impressed! It's such a young, fun town with so much to do. It feels like a big city, but you still know you are in the south and that's what I love about it!
When we first got there, we went to Downtown Franklin and did some shopping there (while keep our eyes glued for any celebrity sitings!) No Nicole Kidman or Keith Urban sitings this time :( If you are ever shopping here, you need to check out a cute boutique called, Philanthropy. A percentage of their proceeds go to several different charities!
|We had to stop at Meridee's Breadbasket for a sweet treat before shopping!|
|Fun sites to see|
|What a fun downtown area with beautiful storefronts|
After we did some shopping, we headed on over to Arrington Vineyards. It is Kix Brooks' vineyard from the country band, Brooks and Dunn. It was beautiful, and would be a awesome place for a date. You can picnic on the side of a hill overlooking the beautiful vineyards, while listening to live music playing. It was such a relaxing place!
|Beautiful! The weather was perfect!|
|Oh, you know, just hiding out in a vineyard!|
The next morning we ate at, Puckett's Grocery, for breakfast. I had a yummy omelet. They also have a breakfast buffet. I am not big on buffets, but they do it right here. We did more shopping, of course, and then went into Nashville. Sarah wanted to take us to this neat popsicle place that sells popsicles made with fresh fruit and they have all different types of flavors! I had pineapple kiwi and I could taste the fibers of the fruit in it. It tasted so fresh!
|Check out Las Paletas Gourmet Popsicles!|
Sarah's yummy birthday treat!
Eating at Demo's Restaurant in downtown Nashville before going out on the town!
We went out on Broadway where we heard many live country bands. What a fun atmosphere!
To wrap up our trip, we had to stop a the famous Pancake Pantry before we left town. Let me just say.....it was DELISH! As I was looking at the menu, I saw where the PANCAKE pantry was famous for their FRENCH TOAST. Going into it, I thought I would get pancakes. I ended up getting the french toast and I was not disappointed! Yummmmm.
|One of the girls got the chocolate chip pancakes. And yes, that is a mound full of butter on the side that you are seeing.|
Love you girls! This trip was so fun, ya'll are always a joy to be around. I wish we could go back soon!
