It has been an absolute whirlwind since moving to Nashville just two weeks ago. Between getting settled into our apartment, showing my parents around the city while they were here, meeting up with friends in town, and getting more acquainted with my office + coworkers, I feel like I haven’t had much ‘Laura time’. That’s okay though, because this city has so much to offer and I feel like a sponge, ready to take it all in.
When we first got into town, we visited some of our favorite places so that my parents could experience them for the first time. Edley’s, Las Paletas, The Pfunky Griddle, Red Door Saloon, etc. We also managed to sneak in some time for laying out by the pool. That lasted an entire 25 minute before our Michigan skin couldn’t take it anymore. [Give me a break, I’m slowly adapting.]
Here’s my brief update on the past two weeks in photos:
Steve & I w/ the obligatory “I believe in Nashville” mural in 12 South. We snapped this right before grabbing some Edley’s with my mom and dad.
We made a drive to Hendersonville while my parents were still in town so that we could see my grandparents old house on Old Hickory Lake. We had to stop by the beach at Lock 3 so I could relive some of my best childhood memories. This place holds such a special spot in my heart.
We had our first Nashville hot chicken experience at Hattie B’s Hot Chicken
, which happens to be just down the road from my office. This could be dangerous. We had a great time eating and catching up with our friends Brian and Trisha who moved down to Nashville from Toronto.
I met up with my friend Ashley of The Nashvillian Blog
at Butchertown Hall
last weekend for a lunch date. It was refreshing to see another Michigan native, talk about work, blogging, and eat some delicious brisket tacos.
Went on a dinner date with Steve last week for some Mexican food in East Nashville at Rosepepper Cantina
. [Are you sensing a theme here, yet? I really, really
like to eat.]
The Spendsetter crew spent
last Thursday together at the Nashville Sounds game for some bonding and
cheap beers. It was the perfect night.
Yesterday was spent at the Nashville Zoo. I loved walking around with the baby kangaroos and admiring the red fox panda.
After the zoo, we cooled off with some Las Paletas. I got the Pineapple Blueberry and Steve got the Coconut. They were perfect for Nashville’s 95 degree weather yesterday.
