Project 365 update. 

Posted on: April 22, 2015

It’s almost May and I haven’t uploaded any photos since New Year’s Eve! Kit and I went to Nashville on the 1st. Here are some photos from that. Also, no idea what day it is but I know I’m about halfway through the project already. So crazy!

This was New Year’s Eve. We stayed in since we left for Nashville pretty early on the 1st.

Here is a photo of the boots we came with.   Looking up from hotel lobby


On Broadyway. We had amazing nachos at Tequila Cowboy.  The boots I bought.  Being silly in the candy store.      Honky Tonk!
We loved exploring Brodway. We met some fun people and saw some good singers! We went to Burger Up in Franklin and the Opryland Hotel the next day. Burger Up was so good! The food was awesome and the place was really cute. Our waiter was nice too.

We did some bar hopping and boot shopping too when we got back to Broadway.

  The band at Wildhorse Saloon.

  Robert’s Western World

  Doing some shopping.

 The next morning we visited Frothy Monkey for breakfast. If ever in Nashville, go there!  it’s amazing.

    We also went to the Country Music Hall of Fame. They had a ton of cool artifacts and stories from the old days. A lot of Taylor Swift too.        This was Elvis’s piano.  and his car.  

  Eric Church’s sunglasses.

Singers at Rippy’s. Kit liked this place.

Jack’s BBQ. Also amazing!

  Boot shot outside our favorite bar, Bootlegger’s.

  Before dinner at The Southern. Talk about delicious! No shortage of good food in this town!

Back at home at my Bloomingdale beach.  Sleepy girl.

getting ready for Dana’s bridal shower! 

Bridal shower pics. The one my family hosted was at Villagio right on Lake Street. It was lovely! We played the “Almost Newlywed” game where we asked questions and they put the owner’s shoe up in the air for who they thought the answer was. It was funny!
