Giddy Up Cowboy!

Our 2nd day in Nashville was even better than the 1st!

Our day started with breakfast at the Pancake Pantry. (Well, my day officially started with a cinnamon roll from the breakfast buffet at the hotel...but who really counts that?) This place is VERY popular...and we waited in line for quite some time before we got a table....but this turned out to be great because I got to visit with my new in real life friend Shaina and her travel partner Lisa!



We got the yummiest pancakes of all time! I had the pecan pancakes and Matt chose peach. I also splurged on the hash browns and they were buttery deliciousness! Although we were disappointed we weren't able to be served by the legendary Bea Arthur look alike...it was still a lovely time.




Want to know something totally crazy?? Shaina lives in Bloomington which is where Matt went to undergrad...and we discovered at breakfast that her and her husband live in the same apartment complex that Matt did! How weird?? It's like we were meant to be friends :)



After breakfast, Matt and I headed to downtown Nashville. Here are some highlights from our adventure...


football stadium for the Tennessee Titans




We may or may not have been trying to capture our picture, subtly mind you, with a shuttle for a strip club which just so happens to also be in Cleveland (who knew their were chain strip clubs??)...but Matt's big head kept blocking it. Use your imagination...





We did a drive by at the Country Music Hall of Fame


And now onto the best part of the afternoon...and maybe the trip! Matt and I kept stopping into all of these little shops and just about every one of them was selling cowboy boots. I've never really had any desire to own cowboy boots...and I really don't have anywhere to wear them...but my husband of all people was really into it! He tried on several pairs at different stores with no luck...but then he found a store that had a great selection and seemed to be a little less expensive than the others. AND...the boots there were buy one get TWO free! Well, I had to look then right??

Well, I found two of the most awesome boots ever! Now I just have to find an outfit and a place to wear them. I think line dancing lessons are in our future!

Better shots!

Matt's boots!



Eek! Pink!


We toted our boots around for the rest of the afternoon and ended up carrying them onto the airplane with us! They were our little babies :)


Up next...the reason we actually went to Nashville...the wedding!!

1. I still feel so, so terrible about being so late that morning. I am sooooo sorry. I hate being late for things and I felt awful. Such a terrible first impression. :(

4. MY Matt worked at the Country Music Hall of Fame when he was in college!

Hmm, I think that's it for now. :)
