Can I just start this out by saying that I cannot believe it's already Wednesday and that the week needs to slow down--I need more time off! I've booked my week with so many things that I feel like I don't have time to go back to work haha :) I'm sure Dustin would agree ;)
Yesterday we left the house bright and early and headed to Nashville for the day. The weather was perfect even though it started off chilly. The only negative was that the wind was insane at times.....meaning my hair was difficult to brush last night. I'm so glad we live close enough to be able to take a day trip.
We stopped off in Franklin, Tennessee, first to walk around their downtown and eat lunch. I love Franklin! Janie and I went one time in high school and walked right by Leann Rimes when she was still married to her first husband! I remember being so starstruck and that he skin looked really smooth, and poor Janie never noticed her because she was talking the whole time!
One of the stores that we stopped in was this gorgeous home interior store only to realize that we couldn't afford anything. Sorry, not paying $3500 for a mirror!
Lunch was at Puckett's and it was so cute inside! I got the strawberry field salad with grilled chicken and Dustin got the Philly sandwich with chicken. The atmosphere was so fun!
**I would also like to note that I walked right past Anthropologie in downtown Franklin and did not go inside. Dustin says I deserve an award, and I think my reward should be clothes from Anthro haha!
Then we went to West End in Nashville to tour the Parthenon. I was excited because it was used to film scenes in the Percy Jackson movie, but I learned so much about the building while touring it. The lady in gold is Athena.
The bottom level was an art gallery. One exhibit was paintings from Grimm's Fairytales. Guess who enjoyed that more? ha!
It was such a pretty day! I wish we had brought a blanket to sit on and relax on the lawn. Actually, I wish I had brought running clothes because so many people were running in this park. We both agreed that this would be a great area to live.
Then we headed to 12th South!
First stop: Jeni's.
I allowed the diabetic to get a small cup of ice cream. #givemoreinsulin
I got a scoop of salted peanut butter and chocolate flecks and a scoop of praline and cream. I can't pick which was better--I liked them both equally!
Then we walked around, and I made sure to take us straight to Draper James! Dustin loved the store and picked me out a romper he liked and wanted me to get. I tried it on, but it was too snug in the chest--so sad!
While I was in the dressing room, he overheard that Reese comes in once a month to check on the store and meet with her head fashion designer. I would die if she had walked in while we were there!
We did LOTS of walking, and my fitbit thanked me!
We stopped in Cool Springs on the way back to grab a quick bite for dinner. Overall, we had a really fun time and I was so glad the weather cooperated!
Linking up with Jenn and Jess today!
