WELCOME TO MASHVILLE

WELCOME TO MASHVILLE

I am thrilled to share that we celebrated not one but two special occasions last weekend in Nashville. I graduated with my Master’s Degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner from Vanderbilt and on the same day Chris turned 30! After graduation we were looking for a place to escape the pouring rain and toast to the birthday boy so we headed to Peabody and 6th for a tour of Ole Smoky’s newest location- affectionately referred to as “Mashville”.

FIVE DAUGHTERS BAKERY

FIVE DAUGHTERS BAKERY

If there’s one thing I know, it’s good donuts. I have favorite donut shops in multiple cities across the U.S. and zero shame. So you know that I have to share with you loverly folks when I find a winner and Five Daughters definitely stacks up.

Bring your daughters, your friends, and your acquaintances but also bring an insulin drip because this place is legit.

LIFE’S ABOUT TO GET GOOD

LIFE’S ABOUT TO GET GOOD

I didn’t know if I should write a blog post about the Shania Twain concert because I was nervous my pictures weren’t “good enough”. Then I realized that this trip with my sister was too special not to share regardless of low quality cell phone snaps. Shania Twain puts on a hell of a show! If you get a chance you should definitely go see her.  Continue reading “LIFE’S ABOUT TO GET GOOD”

HARRY POTTER CONCERT SERIES

HARRY POTTER CONCERT SERIES

This is a throwback post because we went to Nashville the first week of January to hear The Nashville Symphony Orchestra play the score of “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”  live as we watched the film. While it may sound like I’m being unoriginal, the only way I can describe our experience is that it was truly magical. Continue reading “HARRY POTTER CONCERT SERIES”

BRUNCH AT ACME FEED & SEED

BRUNCH AT ACME FEED & SEED

The morning of Red Bull Flugtag we decided to make a pit stop outside the entry gates to eat brunch at Acme Feed & Seed. Apparently, everyone had the same idea but I was shocked at how fast the line moved. We also got our food and drinks with exceptional speed given how many people were there. We were very impressed with how fast lines went the whole time we were in Nashville. Confession time: I’m an old lady on the inside who loves people watching, early meal times, and good food. Acme did not disappoint. Continue reading “BRUNCH AT ACME FEED & SEED”

12 SOUTH & DRAPER JAMES

12 SOUTH & DRAPER JAMES

We started off the morning having brunch at The Pfunky Griddle in Murfreesboro where my sorority sister Kristen and her precious baby girl Olivia live. Get this… you pay to cook your own breakfast. What?! I’m one of the worst cooks and breakfast food is easy to burn. Thankfully, my fiance Julia Child was there to help me out or I would have gone hungry. He cooked me scrambled eggs, hash browns, and blueberry pancakes. Continue reading “12 SOUTH & DRAPER JAMES”

HATTIE B’S HOT CHICKEN & BOBBIE’S DAIRY DIP

HATTIE B’S HOT CHICKEN &                     BOBBIE’S DAIRY DIP

I’m not normally one to enjoy spicy foods but you can’t visit Nashville and not have hot chicken. I wanted to go to Hattie B’s because Prince’s is rumored to be even hotter and Pepperfire is as well! So I went on a Nashville native’s recommendation to start with Hattie B’s and branch out from there. Well… after one bite my mouth was on fire but man was it good!
