Honky Tonk Badonkadonk

I think I still hear country music playing. It definitely isn't called Music City for nothing. We just got back from Nashville yesterday and it was definitely a good time. We flew out on Saturday morning extremely early with Allie and Brandon. We lost an hour so it was still pretty early in the morning when we got there. We all stepped outside of the airport and said Oh my Gosh! We left Florida Saturday morning at 6 am and it was 70 degrees we stepped off the plane in Nashville and it was low 30s! We were not ready for that. It was sort of wet and there was a possibility for snow so we were pretty excited. We went and got breakfast and long and behold it started snowing. At first it was just little snow flurries but  then it started coming down pretty good. Brandon had never seen snow so we were pretty happy!!
It is amazing that Broadway street is just full of bars and starting at 10 am there are live bands playing everywhere and the drinks started flowing. We all love live music we would go from place to place to have a drink and listen to music. We would stop sometime in between to eat! All we did was eat, drink, and walk around.

Sunday we went to the Jags vs Titans football game. One of Jeff's old teammates from Wake plays for them now so we got free tickets. We did not go because the jaguars are any good but because Jeff and Brandon are good fans and love their team. The sun was shining which made it not be to bad. There definitely weren't to many other jaguar fans so the poor boys were on their own.

We ate at so many delicious restaurants and heard so many great bands! I don't know if I will hop on a plane to move there just yet as it is pretty cold we definitely loved getting back to where its in the 70s in dec/jan. but we will definitely go back for another visit. It is always great spending time with Allie and B!

jeff got to meet up with two of his old football buddies

best mac n cheese I've ever had! They even kept it in a doggie bag for us and said we could pick it up anytime before 3 am because we didn't want to throw it away but we weren't going back to our hotel right then. So nice of them and we did pick it up after the ball dropped!

The street was filled with thousands of people. one of the bartenders told us this is like one of the top new years eve party in U.S.A. It was a little rainy but it was worth it to see them drop the music note and see the fireworks. The streets were filled with beer carts, food trucks, funnel cake stands and was all roped off. We stayed inside one bar for hours on end because this band was amazing. We popped out at 11:30 to not miss the show and get soaking wet!

Here's to another year! 
Happy New Year to all of you!
