Christy's Bachelorette Party in Nashville
This past weekend I headed to Nashville for Christy Reimann's bachelorette party. I took Emma to the doctor early Friday morning (still has an ear infection. Just can't kick it poor thing) then headed out for the weekend. Elizabeth and I rode together and we got into town at lunch time and met up with Carrie, Christy, Meghan, and Caroline for lunch at Marche. It was delicious! Good brunch type food and mimosas. We then left to head to the house.
We rented an AirBNB house in the 12 South area. The house was so cute and we each had somewhere to sleep comfortably. There were 11 of us on Friday night and then 10 on Saturday. Caroline had a wedding Saturday night so she just came for the first night.
We had welcome drinks at the house Friday before going out to dinner at Cabanas. Cabanas is the epitome of a bachelorette party dinner place. We had a huge booth where we could play our own music and they even sell bachelorette boxes with decorations for the table. We had a great time! We then went out for some dancing afterwards!
Saturday we woke up and headed out to Flipside for brunch. OMG was it fantastic! It was such cute decor inside as well. The tator tot nachos to start were delicious and they have a 2-1 for mimosas, bloody mary's, and bellinis. So fun!
From lunch we went back to the house for a minute before heading to Arrington Vineyards. It poured with rain ALL day on Saturday but we made the most of it. Worked out great and we had our own little private area at the vineyard where we also did her lingerie shower. The wine was good. On a pretty day it would be so nice to post up with a picnic for the afternoon. Highly recommend it!
After the vineyards we went back to the house for dinner. We had a taco bar at the house. We left for the honky tonk bars around 10 for more dancing. The live music in Nashville is such a fun time. The bands at both places we went to were so different and played different genres of music. It was a late night but I know the bachelorette enjoyed herself!
Sunday we had a farewell breakfast at the house before hitting the road. Boy was the ride home an adventure! There was a really bad accident on I-75 S which must have happened not long before we got there because we just SAT. Finally we weasled our way off the closest exit (found a bathroom and some food!) and used back roads to get around to another entrance onto the interstate. What should have been a 3 3/4 hour trip took us 6.5 hours. I was SO glad to get home. I was pooped and really just wanted some time with Emma before she needed to go to bed. We left Nashville at 10am central (so 11 am eastern) and I walked in my door at 5:30pm. LONG day! Thank you Elizabeth for driving and braving the rain and traffic.
We had a great weekend and can't wait for June 17th in Athens to celebrate the marriage of Andrew and Christy!
