Derek and I had a little getaway this weekend with Sarah and her husband, and our friends Emily and Nick. This trip has been planned forever (it feels like)!! I’m so happy we were able to find a weekend that worked for everybody. Nashville is our favorite city and we could not wait to be there with our friends!
We had such a great time listening to live music and finding some great places to eat. We were even able to go to some new places….like The Bluebird Cafe!! We were so incredibly excited when Derek pulled off what felt the impossible of getting 6 tickets to The Bluebird for Friday night.
I’m so glad to say that we’ve been there and can really appreciate all the history and talent that has been through this place. However, I’m not sure if we would go back. I thoroughly enjoy listening to music that I can sing along to. This got a little long for us and consisted mostly of original songs. BUT, like I said, I’m so glad we went. I was amazed with how small it was!
We also went to The Pharmacy Friday night. I had heard about this place the last time we were there (and after Miss Nancy J confirmed we should definitely check it out) and thought it was kinda cute to take Derek there. Oh myyyyyyy goodness. Best burger ever! Mine had black beans and guacamole. Yes, it was as good as it sounds. We all pretty much woke up the next morning talking and thinking about those burgers, yum!
Saturday morning we got up and had brunch at the cutest little place ever. While the mimosas were delicious, we all agreed the food was good, but not great.
As you can imagine, Saturday was spent on Broadway listening to music and enjoying day drinking. We managed to end up in a cigar bar. To say Derek was happy as a clam would be an understatement!
Saturday evening we had dinner at The Southern. Our food was so so SO delicious! I tried grits for the first time (I know, how have I managed to go through life without ever trying!) and I have to say I was a fan.
I absolutely love how we can do the same thing (listen to live music all day every day) every single time in Nashville and still have the best time ever…..AND still try new things like their fantastic food scene. This time was even better experiencing everything with our friends.
Now, Charlie was home with both of her grandparents. As you can imagine, she was spoiled rotten the whole weekend. Thus, Derek and I were able to enjoy ourselves and not worry at all about how she was doing. HOWEVER, we were missing her like crazy the whole time. I face-timed at least once every day so I could see that cute little face. We could not wait to get back to our little girl. A huge thank you to my Mom and Derek’s parents for watching her. Derek and I loved our weekend getaway and appreciated the time we got to spend together!
We love you Nashville and will definitely be back for you soon.
