Nashville Getaway: Food and Fun

by Brittany on March 26, 2014

This What I Ate Wednesday is a bit different.

Yesterday (or today since I am writing this on Tuesday), Baby D had a hard day.  He was already fussy and didn’t sleep well the night before, but he also had his 2 month checkup.  This entailed getting his blood drawn and 2 shots.

Sweet boy was not having it the rest of the day…. so, I totally forgot to take pictures.  Plus, I think I ate myself out of house and home.  Stress= eat for me.  It kills me when he is upset!

Anywho, let’s talk about something happy.  Food is happy right???  ;)

The school Luvy teaches at has an extension in Nashville, and Luvy is teaching there some this semester!  So, Baby D and I went with him.

I met up with my best friend Emily for lunch.  She lives there in Nashville, so her boss was so kind to let her leave for lunch to hang out with me and Baby D!

She is a hygienist like me… and her boss treated us to lunch!  How sweet right?

We went to Chipotle.  Their guac speaks to me– I always get it on the side because they give you more!  ;)

After lunch, I went to see my college roommate, Stacey, and her husband, Dave.  They just had a little girl and she has been in Vanderbilt NICU since she was born.

I won’t go into details for privacy sake (I didn’t ask their permission) but please keep them and their little sweet pea in your prayers!

After snuggles with Stace, it was time to go pick up daddy at work.  I had a blueberry Larabar on the drive.

I had forgotten how good those were!


Luvy treated me to dinner at my absolute favorite Thai restaurant and favorite place in Nashville, Thai Phooket.

We shared the Veggie Green Curry and the Salmon Massaman Curry.

I was stuffed when we left, but I just couldn’t stop eating.  It is that good!

I have a few Nashville favorites that I have on my list to go to next visit.  :)

Thanks to Jenn for the awesome link up!

Danica @ It's Progression March 26, 2014 at 8:08 am

Our closest getaway areas are either the Twin Cities (MN) or the Wisconsin Dells (WI)!

Sounds like a fun getaway trip!!!
Prayers for your friends and their baby – we had to do the NICU thing with our youngest – not that much fun!!
Hopefully today is a better day for Baby D!!


Kelly @ Cupcake Kelly's March 26, 2014 at 12:05 pm

I’ve always wanted to go to Nashville, but it is not a quick trip ha!

My little one LOVES larabars, especially the blueberry!


Brittany April 8, 2014 at 2:57 pm

no it wouldn’t be… but you would love it!


Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table March 26, 2014 at 1:34 pm

I’m so sorry D wasn’t feeling well! Looks like a fun trip to Nashville though. Love Thai food! We have some awesome Thai in ATL… I’m just saying. ;)


Sarah @ Sarah Sincerely March 26, 2014 at 7:10 pm

Aw, poor baby D! Hopefully he’s (and you are) feeling much better today. What a fun little get away! We are about 3 hours from Atlanta, so that’s always a fun weekend getaway place. Lots of good concerts, ballgames, etc.


Jessie March 26, 2014 at 7:47 pm

Treated to not only lunch & dinner? I’d say you are one special Momma! Will keep your friend in my prayers <3 <3

On the go snack – Quest bars have been my go to lately.


Matt @ Runner Savvy March 26, 2014 at 7:54 pm

Isn’t Chipotle the best?


Heather @ Kiss My Broccoli March 27, 2014 at 4:38 am

I have GOT to try that salmon dish the next time I go to Thai Phooket! I’m still soooooo bummed that I didn’t get to see you when you were so close! Hmm, how many more times will you be coming down? Maybe I could ask off work one night! :)


Brittany April 8, 2014 at 2:58 pm
