Last weekend’s visit to Nashville was exactly what I needed to escape routine and unwind. My travel companion is just as much of an old lady as I am, so we explored the city the way I actually like to do it: a planned itinerary, early bed times and up early to workout…and eat donuts. Read More »

I wore this a few weeks back on my last full day in Nashville! I spilled coffee all over this top pretty early in the day. Should’ve known that would happen since it’s white and I attract stains. My mom and I grabbed coffee at Barista Parlor in Germantown before heading to the zoo to see the much anticipated giraffes (her favorite) and meerkats (my favorite.) Anyone remember Meerkat Manor on Animal Planet? I fucking loved that show and thought Flower, the alpha female was a raging bitch until I watched a special on Flower’s life and realized all the hardships she experienced made her into that tough alpha female that she was. And I also cried watching that special. Any who, it was a great way to spend a day in Nashville and can’t wait to get back!

I declare this dress my new, easy-to-pack and wear travel dress! I rolled it up in my suitcase without worry of wrinkles and tossed it on with simple wedge sandals for a burger date in Nashville with my mom.

We found another “Believe in Nashville” sign so naturally I forced my mom to take 100 jumping shots of me in front of it.
My mom found this ‘Merica tank at Blush in the Gulch–we did a lot of shopping and sightseeing during our four day stay in Nashville. No celebrity sightings unfortunately.
My mom LOVES American Pickers and when I reminded her that they had a store in Nashville, she was beside herself with excitement. The store was filled with items she saw from previous episodes of the show and a variety of other trinkets that my mom just had to take photos of. I’ve never heard that click of the digital camera so much in my life (besides the flight home when she finally got a window seat and took a million photos of clouds.)
Visiting the Belle Meade Plantation was a highlight of the trip, particularly the wine tasting and drinking a glass of this blueberry wine with an overpriced truffle and $8 mini bag of caramels. It was so beautiful out and we sat in this little courtyard enjoying our drinks.
I love Eighth Avenue Antiques and since my mom loves antiquing, we made a quick stop here and we regretting not driving so that we could buy all the shit and just load it in my car. There were a handful of pretty mirrors I would’ve liked to take home with me.
