So I didn't end up getting any photos from our trip on Friday. Most of us didn't feel well the next day, so the girls headed to the mall to do a little shopping, and the boys headed back to another guitar shop to play around all day. I think it was maybe a mix of the vertigo and too many cocktails, but I was in such a weird fog that I couldn't fully commit to buying anything. We even went into my favorite store, Madewell (which I rarely get to do) and I couldn't buy a thing! I did end up buying new duck boots for winter though, so I'm pretty excited about that. That night, we went to dinner at The Pharmacy and went to see another musician play at The Station Inn.
On Saturday though (when these pictures were taken), we had a great last day in Nashville. We started out with breakfast at Loveless Cafe, which is one of my favorite places to stop. The line was ridiculous, but thankfully the weather was beautiful, so we sat outside, played cornhole, did a little shopping in the shops, and finally devoured delicious biscuits. Plus, Loveless has my favorite hashbrown casserole ever. It's so incredibly tasty! I need to find the recipe online somewhere...
I absolutely love wearing this skirt in spring, but never really considered it for fall. But when I was packing last week, I thought it went well with my new mustard sweater from Old Navy. I was a little nervous going into Nashville weather, because I already packed all of my spring/summer clothes away. But I got away with light sweaters, longer skirts, jeans, and off-the-shoulder tops. I'm glad I was able to pull a few of those things out actually that I didn't get a chance to wear this summer! But now we're finally into layering season here in Michigan and I am pumped.
After Loveless Cafe, we headed to Jackalope Brewing Company for a couple of drinks, and headed over to Pinewood Social to hang out. I've always loved this place from pictures online, so I'm really glad we headed over there to check it out. We got inside, had a few drinks at the bar, and the boys watched the Michigan game, and the girls hung out. I went inside the bowling alley to snap a few pictures quick, and looked over and spotted Connie Britton (from Nashville, American Horror Story, Friday Night Lights, etc.) I was a total fangirl! I went over and told Eric (who also loves her) and we all freaked out for a second. I couldn't go up to her (wanted to respect her privacy) but it was so awesome to see her in person.
After a couple of cocktails, we headed to Hattie B's for Nashville's famous hot chicken. It was probably my favorite meal of the entire trip. It was so incredibly good. I went for the mild chicken, with pimento mac and cheese and red skin potato salad. YUM. I'm still dreaming of that meal. After dinner, we headed back to the house to freshen up and headed back downtown to Broadway to Robert's Western World to see The Don Kelley Band. After that, we made our way out to Opryland to see another band play, and ended the night with cocktails and a trip to Sprinkle's Cupcake ATM. I had their cinnamon sugar cupcake, which was basically a cider doughnut morphed into a cupcake. Best choice, ever. And that was our trip! Such a great, whirlwind weekend.
