45 Hours in Nashville

Just about three weeks ago I set off for a girls' weekend in Nashville celebrating a very special bride-to-be. Kara is a sorority sister and good friend of mine who deserved to be treated to a fun celebration in her honor. It was many of our first time in Nashville and we did the best that we could to see it all in a short amount of time. The co-maid-of-honor did a fabulous job of planning our weekend so I thought I would replicate our agenda in case you ever find yourself with 45 hours in Nashville.

We stayed at the Hutton Hotel, enjoyed Friday night happy hour on the rooftop of Sambucca followed by a sushi dinner at Virago. The evening ended with a couple stops on Broadway checking out the touristy fun. (There was a Tim Gunn sighting at our hotel Friday afternoon - of course I missed it by thirty minutes.)

Saturday morning started out with a weekend highlight - the Nashville Pedal Tavern. We pedaled through the Broadway District for three hours, stopping along the way to hear live music at several suggested bars.

Later that afternoon a few of us decided to take a cab ride out to check out the Grand Ole Opry. I just didn't think I could go to Nashville and not see it. Bonus part of that excursion included a trek through the massive Gaylord resort as we searched for a cab back downtown.

Saturday night we decided to scrap our initial plans in favor of staying in the midtown area, dining at Chuy's and checking out two low-key bars close by - Winner's and Loser's.

And of course there were cookies...cowboy boot cookies in honor of our bride. Hint: I just might be posting a photo of the bride in her wedding gown donning some similar boots in just a couple of weeks.

So that was our journey and a fun one it was. There is really nothing like a good girls' weekend. My mom has always emphasized the importance of maintinaning friendships with girlfriends and I couldn't agree more.
