Weekend Recap:)

Wow, I must say what a weekend it was!!!!! I spent Friday night packing for my Saturday, birthday trip to Nashville. Technically, my birthday isn't until Friday, i'm still in my twenties...yay!!!!!!!! and since a couple of my girlfriends have children, this past weekend worked out best to celebrate a girls trip for my thirtieth.

We headed out that morning, and we stopped for breakfast at Loretta Lynn's County Kitchen. I had the biscuits and gravy. They were darn good. NOM NOM NOM. I'm not a huge breakfast person. While eating breakfast with my BFF and her little sis, I found out BFF is pregnant with her second child. I was so thrilled for her. She's close to two months along and had been waiting to tell me. She hasn't told anyone but her family since she's not far enough along yet, but she asked ME to be the Godmother. And, I must say that was better than any "present" she could have ever given me!!! I feel extremely honored that my BFF entrusts me with such an amazing role in her child's life. It brought tears to my eyes, and I feel extremely special:)

Once into Nashville, we head straight to the Opry Mills mall. I was ecstatic there was a BCBG and Banana Republic outlet. I was very good on this trip btw. I purchased this Max and Cleo dress for $39 at BCBG. It still retails on the Nordstrom website for $54. So, not too shabby:)
And, I got this cute, little blouse at the Banana Republic outlet for $15. I couldn't find a picture of it online except from a blog. So here it is. It will be tres cute paired with my work pants and a cardi.


Later that night, we enjoyed dinner and drinks at Cabana! I had the yummy Tennessee Sliders. The "sliders"are: freshly baked mini sweet potato biscuits with house made peach preserves and buttermilk fried chicken tenders. YUM YUM--NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM for reals.

My girlfriends got me a slice of strawberry cake from Lydia's in Nashville, my pink Nike vomeros, makeup, and I was given the opportunity to be a Godmother. It was THE best birthday I've ever had:) Just being with all my friends, old and new, was one of the best presents of all (with the Godmother exception-because that just totally ROCKS).
 
After dinner, we headed to Broadway Street downtown and ended up at Paradise Park and sang the "Chicken Fried" song by The Zac Brown Band at the top of our lungs among others.
 
Afterwards, we headed to Decades. It was so much fun just dancing and singing anything from NSync and the Backstreet Boys to Journey and The Outfield. "Josie's on a vacation far away......." "It's gonna be me....." Okay, I'll stop. It was so much fun:)

And afterwards, we went back to one of my girlfriend's houses off of 21st and kept on with the festivities. Needless to say, I am not a young, college student anymore. Going to bed at 5am and waking up at 10am not feeling so hot is not a way to start the day. It's now, Wednesday, and I am barely recovered. I don't think I'll be doing that for another 6 months to a year. LOL!!!

I work no less than 3 minutes from Opry Mills and somehow it has escaped me that there is a BCBG outlet? I should stop avoiding that place...

And PS - I always get the biscuits and peach preserves at Cabana. So yum!!
