40th Birthday Trip to Nashville!

What a crazy busy week this last one has been, so I am going to try & catch up! We will start with my birthday! I turned 40 last Tuesday, the 13th. (I will be posting these on the actual dates, so that they make sense) D had a business meeting & his company Christmas party in Nashville. And I got to go along! It was an all expense paid overnight trip. We got to stay at the Gaylord Opryland Resort. We left super early on Tuesday morning. It was cold, rainy & there was a dense fog between here & Nashville.. We got there with 15 minutes to spare before D's meeting, which happened to be at the Dave & Busters at Opry Mills Mall. I planned to hang out at the mall all day. They have a Vera Bradley Outlet & I knew that was a must shop stop!

I eventually went to sit in the car for awhile, but the temps had dropped a lot. I bundled up & walk around outside of the Grand Old Opry. D's meeting was over at 5, We went over to check in to the hotel & was in utter awe of the place! We didn't have a whole lot of time to get ready & be back at Dave & Buster's for the party. Once at the party, we got to eat, bowl & play games! We got back to the hotel & even though we were exhausted we walked around as much as we could. That place is enormous! We only got to see the atrium that we stayed in. It was sooooo cool that our room had a balcony to the atrium! I wish that we could have stayed a couple of days to see it all. We had to get up early on Wednesday to head back home.

It was such a fabulous 40th birthday! Mom said that she had wanted to plan a surprise party for me, but nothing that she would have planned could have topped this. I mean...for that trip to actually be on my birthday??? How awesome is that? Here are a bunch of photos from the trip!

Peach VIRGIN margarita, since I don't drink. But since drinks are free thought that I would try it. Tastes just like biting into a fresh peach.
