Weekend Recap 6.6.17 … A Very Special Birthday and The Predators are in the Stanley Cup!!!

Hey guys!  I am spending the morning trying to play catch up with my pictures/blog from the past couple weeks.  I swear I will find a normal blogging routine one of these days.  We haven’t quite set a new routine after moving and have had so much going on in the evenings that it has been hard to find time to blog.  

This was me last weekend sanding and painting an old table my mom had.  We need something to fill up the space in a corner of our living room and wanted it to match everything else.  One we get the house completely together I will show you it’s place.  We are having a housewarming party in a couple weeks so we are moving right along with finding a place for everything.  I love having a deadline to get our house ready or else we may have been living out of boxes for a little too long.  

This was us watching one of the last Predators games at a bar.  But this last weekend, I got to watch the Stanley Cup in person!!

Before the game on Saturday, we headed out to Old Hickory Lake to celebrate my best friend, Rachael’s birthday.  She rented two pontoon boats for 30 of us.  It was such a blast!  Happy 27th birthday Rach!!

She may have had to be rescued after that picture. 😉

This guy was in his happy place.

After a few hours on the lake, we got dropped off to get ready for the game.

We hurried home and met up with my dad then the 3 of us headed downtown.  It was crazy downtown!! If you haven’t seen the pictures on the news, you should look them up!! Nashville really rallied together to support the Preds!!  It is days like Saturday that make me LOVE Nashville and all the people here.

We cut the end of the Alan Jackson concert then dropped my husband off to meet up with some friends.  Then my dad and I headed to the arena!

We got these light up bracelets in our seats and I hadn’t seen them before.  My dad told me I had to put it on and I soon found out why!  The whole stadium lit up to the music at the beginning of the game.

The bracelets lit up different colors and different levels of the arena would light up at different times.  It was truly beautiful.  The pictures definitely don’t do it justice, but I did get a couple videos that I posted to my youtube if you want to see!

The place was packed and we barely sat down the entire time!!

We got a little nervous when the Penguins scored in the first 3 minutes of the game, but thankfully the Preds were able to pull it together and ended up winning 5 to 1!!!! It was so incredible to experience the crowd going nuts and all the support behind the Preds!

It was a madhouse downtown after the game!!

We went and met up with my husband and some friends for a drink while we waited for the uber prices to go down a bit. 🙂

  1. Congrats on all the moving-in accomplishments! I can’t wait to see the whole thing put together – I’m sure you did an amazing job! And kudos to your mom and mother in law for helping you, it’s so nice to have supportive family!

    Not a hockey fan 😦 I actually don’t care for many sports at all, but I am constantly impressed by how much sports create a sense of community among their fans 🙂

  2. Hi Taylor! I will take pictures soon!! It is all coming together (thankfully!). I am so lucky to have family that is always around to help. 🙂
    That is so true. I do like sports, but I actually enjoy the whole experience (going out, chatting with friends, people watching…) more than the game itself. Nashville sure is rallying behind the Predators, which is a really cool thing to see. Have a great weekend!!
