Our Evening at the Opryland Hotel

Monday, December 18, 2017

Since Dustin and I have started dating, almost every Christmas season we've driven the 1.5-2 hour drive to Nashville to look at the lights at the Opryland Hotel.  This year we started at the Opry Mills Mall for lunch--big mistake...way too crowded--and then walked over to the hotel to look at all the lights.

They had changed a few things up since we had last been two years ago so it was nice seeing new things.

 You know there are always lots of selfies when it's just y'all two.

As we were looking at the Directory in the front lobby, a couple approached us about tickets to the dinner theater show that started in 15 minutes.  They had a toddler and decided they didn't want to take her into the show, so they gave us their tickets....GAVE us their tickets!  I called my mom to tell her and she looked up the price of the tickets--$80 each!  We could not believe it, and we are so grateful to the couple who so generously gave us their dinner tickets!

 Inside the show room

We were the last two at our table and the server immediately brought us out our first course...mushroom soup with a pastry baked on top.  I was too in shock to take a picture because we still couldn't believe our luck!

 The main course--it was so good!  

 The dessert course was really good, too!

Diamond Rio was the performer.  Even though I'm not a country fan (and Dustin is--he was in heaven!), it was a good show!  They opened with some of their hits and then played Christmas songs the rest of the show.

 The outside lights are always my favorite, but they weren't as big this year because the hotel is adding on a water hotel.

  13. The Opryland is so pretty any time, but especially at Christmas! I wish we lived further north so we could get up there more regularly...I told my husband the other day I guess we have Atlanta & y'all have Nashville (but I would much rather have Nashville, haha!)
