Nashville Trip… Food, Family & Fun

Hi ya’ll!  Long time no talk!  On Tuesday, my husband and I headed to Nashville for a couple days.  He had some work to do there so I decided to tag along so I could spend some time with my family and friends.  

Shortly after we arrived we headed to California Pizza Kitchen for a late lunch.  I had the best salad! Yum!

Tuesday evening my dad and I surprised my little brother at his hockey practice.  He was so happy to see us.  He is such a good skater; I am so jealous of his skills. 🙂 


After practice, my dad and I grabbed takeout to eat at home during the Indians/Cubs game.  I can’t believe the Indians lost. 😦


Riley was very invested in the game too. 😉


Wednesday morning my dad, Riley, Jon and I headed to the park for a nice long hike. 


We saw an owl!


And a turtle!  Riley wasn’t sure what to think of it.


Such a beautiful day to be in nature.  


I can’t believe we are still wearing shorts in November!


Wednesday afternoon my dad and I grabbed some lunch at McAlisters before some shopping at home goods. The squash soup was to die for!


Then it was more playtime for Riley.  He thought all my brother’s toys were his new toys.  🙂

Wednesday night my dad and I met my bestie, Rachael, at Mere Bulles for an early dinner before game 7 of the World Series.  


I got the ahi tuna, which was absolutely incredible!!!

After dinner, we headed home to root for the Indians…. 

And Rach got some cuddling in with her nephew. 🙂


Shortly after, he was wiped!! That hike did him in. 😉


Thursday morning I met my mom at Target for a little shopping.  We grabbed a coffee and did a little more shopping before lunch at Avo.  Avo is a vegan restaurant I have been wanting to try for a while now! 


I got the Nashville salad, which was full of fresh, local ingredients and my mom got the avocado toast that came with a salad too.  We both loved our meals!! So fresh and healthy!

Yesterday afternoon we caught a flight back to Dallas and now it’s back to the grind!  Looking forward to a fun dinner tonight with Jon, my sister, and her boyfriend to celebrate my birthday that was on Tuesday.  It’s official ya’ll, I am in my late 20s now… ahh!!! 🙂

Enjoy your weekend!!!

  1. I looove CPK salads! They are always soooo goood. And that AVO place looks like a dream. Is it a chain do you know? I should see if there is one around here.
    -Weekend plans: We have family in town so we are going into the city for some good eats and then tomorrow meeting up with friends from church for dinner to have ethiopian food for the first time. I am quite excited about that!
    -Avocado toast: YESSS avocado toast with hard boiled eggs and tabasco, sea salt, and pepper is my favorite snack. It might sound a bit weird but it is SO good.
    -World series: Yes.. I did. And I’m currently nursing a broken heart. Wahhh!

    Have a good weekend and so glad you enjoyed your time in Nashville!


  2. I’m always constantly looking up flights to Nashville, its always so darn expensive flying from Boston but it’s definitely high up on my list of places to go! Where were you guys originally coming from- do you guys just drive to Nashville?

    Weekend plan: flying out to DC today for a nice little long weekend getaway
    Avocado toast: If that means avocado on my toast, absolutely- with a little bit of scrambled eggs and sriratcha too!
    World Series: I sure did but I didn’t have a preference (Go Red Sox) ha

    xo, JJ
