We are back... : (
We went to Nashville for the weekend...and now we are back working. It was a nice little trip...short but nice. The Nashville area is beautiful. It was so green and SOOO MUCH land. You would never see that much free space in Atlanta. The developers are gobbling up every inch here. Friday night we made it up there around 4:30 (our time), had dinner and ice cream and just hung out for the evening. Saturday we went to Hillsborough Village and had lunch, went to a replica of the Parthenon but didn't want to pay to go inside so we looked from outside, drove through a couple of nice areas around Nashville, and then headed downtown. We walked up and down Broadway looking in some of the shops (which was very interesting). We eventually settled on heading in to Tootsies which is a bar with an open mic (every bar on Broadway had live music). Coincidentally there was a girl at the table next to us that was pregnant and she commented on how fun it was to be pregnant in a bar. I didn't mind it though until this nasty guy started smoking next to us. Then we moved on. After Tootsies, we went to Rippy's. They had an outside patio on top of their restaurant which was perfect. The weather was so nice we enjoyed being outside. We then met my cousin and his girlfriend for dinner down the street at Big River Grill...it is owned by Gordon Biersch. It was nice to be able to see them and hang out for a little while. After dinner we headed over to the Predators game (Go Thrashers!). We had a super obnoxious lady sitting behind us but it made for good conversation in the car on the way home. Overall everything went by so fast but we really enjoyed our time in Nashville. If it wasn't for the snow, I might enjoy living there.
