How was everyone’s week?? The hubby and I just got home from Nashville Tuesday. A little work & a little play! We had the very best time! Lot’s of food, cocktails, dancing, laughing, golfing, shopping, sleeping in, staying out late… All things FUN! Needless to say I have been dragging since we got home. But the show must go on! So here’s some pics & deets from our quick trip. Hope you enjoy!
Saturday we arrived just in time to check into our hotel, freshen up and meet our friends at ‘Kayne Prime’ for dinner. It is such a cool restaurant. Very hip & trendy but still super nice and elegant.
We ordered the popcorn buttered lobster as an appetizer. It’s exactly as described. Buttery lobster topped with buttery popcorn. It was interesting but really good! We also ordered the housemate bacon which was pork belly w/ black peppercorn served over maple cotton candy. Insane right?? It was the perfect compliment to one another, a true culinary experience!
Sunday we went FGL house for brunch. FGL house is a really cool, 3 story restaurant & bar owned and named after Florida Georgia Line. It was really impressive! The downstairs was a very sportier-esque vibe, the middle floor was a little calmer but same idea and the third & final floor was in an in-door outdoor, roof top bar.
& what’s brunch without mimosas? These were really fun served w/ a popsicle!
After brunch we went up to the roof top to watch the rest of the Raider v. Titans game that was actually happening right next door to us!
Sunday evening we rode in a golf cart uber around town to our dinner destination..It was a blast!
Monday the guys played in a golf tournament so my girlfriend Claire & I went exploring. We started off with lunch at this trendy Mexi restaurant called ‘Bar Taco’. It is phenomenal. So good and has a very hipster vibe goin on. The menu is here behind these hot sauces. You look through and check off the items you’d like to order. They had a lunch special going on where you can choose three tacos, and either soup or a salad for $9.99, that’s what I went with!
Obviously we had to order the chips & guac! Loved this presentation. Warm, fresh tortilla crips & delicious guacamole, served on a small tray.
I chose 2 Baja fish tacos & 1 pork carnitas. The pork was by far my fave! It was marinated in a delicious pineapple sauce. Soooo good!
And we couldn’t have a leisurely Mexican lunch without a margarita in hand! We went with their basic margarita that tasted anything but basic.
After lunch we walked around and found Reese Witherspoon’s store called Draper James. It is darling! Right when you walk in, you are greeted by a sales associate offering you ‘sweet tea while you shop’. How cute is that? To me the store is very southern meets Hamptons. Very clean, lots of white & blues. Just all around adorable!
Here I am in Draper James, super excited because I found one of my favorite bloggers new books!

We also stopped in at Sprinkles. It was my very first time if you can believe that!! We couldn’t decide on what to go with so we went with 3. Their best selling, which is Red Velvet. Then the vanilla milk chocolate, and the black & white. I was hoping to try the lemon but they were out. Boo!
