Nashville Bachelorette Party:: #PermanentHickey

This past weekend was spent in Nashville for a girlfriend's bachelorette party and we had a blast! She is the happiest bride I have ever seen and was loving every second of her special weekend!

I took off work on Friday so we could head to the festivities, but not before attending a Blues game on Thursday night with Michael and a couple of our friends! The Blues lost, but our seats were perfect and we had a great time.

I was feeling a little under the weather Friday morning, so we had a delayed start to the day but finally got on the road around 9:00. Luckily, with the help of some cold medicine, I was feeling great a couple hours into our road trip. We took a pit stop in Metropolis and couldn't pass up this fun Superman photo op!

Traffic was rough, and our five-hour road trip quickly turned into six.  We were ecstatic when we finally arrived around 3:00 and were able to get checked into out hotel room. How cool is this view of the elevators at the Sheraton?!

After we got settled, it was time to meet up with the group at Honky Tonk! We walked in and things were already getting wild. The bride was up on stage dancing and having a great time! The band was fantastic and the people watching was on point. Definitely a great place to kick off our stay in Nashville!

After a couple hours at the bar, we went back to the hotel to freshen up for dinner and then headed back downtown. We grabbed a quick dinner at Bailey's before checking out Rippy's and enjoying a lot of live music and dancing. The night ended with a little chit chatting with the hotel security guard while making some easy mac...normal!

Saturday morning, we woke up and headed to a boozy brunch at Saint Anejo - such a neat place! We ate some Mexican food, sipped a few too many drinks, and the bride opened her beach-themed party gifts. I thought the basket Jess and I put together for her turned out adorable! 

After we finished up our boozy brunch, it was back to the bars for us. We bounced up and down Broadway, making pit stops at bars like Tootsies and The Second Fiddle. We laughed, we danced, we sang, and we loved every second of it! I even managed to get a hold of the Blue's hockey sticks for a bit back at the hotel. I know they were thankful they had me to carry them ha!

Sunday morning, we packed up early to head home. I spent the afternoon lounging around and exploring the farm with Michael. It was the perfect end to a fun weekend.
