This weekend is the first weekend in months that Steve and I have had off with no travel plans, no work, no nothing. Just a full weekend of nothing but Nashville. It has been amazing so far. Since I just wrapped up launch week with my SPS team, we were given a half day Friday, which was the perfect way to jumpstart the weekend. It feels so good to have some time to kick back and relax.
Additionally, we went to see Minus The Bear play Live on the Green Thursday evening, so that was awesome, too. Gotta love a free music festival with some of your favorite bands. Plus they played early in the night so we stopped at Greko for Greek street food afterwards and then to Dee’s for a couple beers before calling it a night.
After tossing around a few different brunch ideas this morning, we settled on Fido after just driving around the city. It feels so much better to not have an agenda and just do things on a whim based on how I’m feeling. I feel like that’s how I live day to day. Planning things too much only allows for me to get stressed and anxious, so it’s easier to go with the flow. I’ve realized that Nashville will always have new restaurants opening and new things to see and do, and if I try too hard to see or do too many things in a short time, I end up not enjoying it. Anyone else get that way?
After brunch we came home so we could get some things done around the house. It was so nice to just slow down and enjoy time at home together for a change. We then decided to grab dinner at the newly opened Fort Louise in Riverside Village. I’ll share more about our date night at a different time, because you’re all going to want to hear about how delicious the food was. It was the perfect date night spot. I sure do miss living really close to Riverside Village and all of the cute places that are popping up over there.
I love the relaxed look and feel of these linen high-waisted pants that I picked up from Vinnie Louise last month. They’re super soft, stretchy, and go with so many different things. They’re also the perfect addition to my comfy work-from-home wardrobe, where I wear only things with a stretchy waistband and breathable fabric. Haha. Gotta let that gut breathe while I’m sitting at a computer desk all day.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, everyone!
