BIRTHDAY Weekend Recap….Y’all!!

Do you know where we went yet?



….What about now?

.….Now??

We went to NASHVILLE! 


So, we have never been there and I was soexcited!!  I thought Chicago was my most favorite city; and now, I’m thinking Nashville has taken it’s spot!  I loved every second and cannot wait to go back!  Wanna know what we did?  Ok, well let me show you!


We ATE a lot!
Friday night, we went to Capitol Grill.  Derek enjoyed Alaskan Salmon and I had the Beef Striploin!



Saturday afternoon we checked out Mitchell’s Delicatessen (did I mention this was my actual birthday?!?!).  This was the best deli ever! I had the turkey avocado sandwich (pictured above) and it was possibly the best turkey sandwich!  Yum!


We got Jeni’s Ice Cream afterwards!  THE best flavors: Pistachio & honey, brambleberry crisp, brown butter almond brittle, and The Buckeye State!  We tried them all!


Saturday night, we enjoyed Midtown Café.  I had the Gnocchi and Derek got the Scallops…yum!  We got the coconut cake for dessert and it was pretty heavenly….so delicious!


We LISTENED to live music!


We spent all of our time on Broadway listening to all the the live music.  It was the greatest!  I could listen to these bands all night!  Everybody was amazing and I couldn’t believe it!


Oh, and we JAMMED with Elvis!



Loved Nashville (if you couldn’t tell) and had a super great time with Derek!!  Thanks dear for planning my extra special birthday weekend!


Hope you had a great weekend too!
