Trendy On A Budget

Looking good shouldn't cost that much!

I Love Nashville

If you were plugged into my Instagram account or Snapchat (trendyonabudget) this past weekend, you already know I was down South in Nashville for my sis-in-law’s bachelorette party #LeahsNashBash. We ate, drank, and danced our way through Nashville. We even squeezed in a quick workout (you’ll see what I mean). Here are a few of the highlights from our weekend away!

BootsFirst order of business: buy cowboy boots. Let me tell you, there is no shortage of boots here! I decided to go with a low key pair (seen in previous pic to the far right) from Boot Country.

Pinewood SocialWe kicked off Friday night with dinner at Pinewood Social. The MOH booked us a private room and customized the menu for this special occasion.

ricotta cavatelliSo I went with the cavatelli. It was heaven in a bowl and I didn’t want it to end. Not pictured here was the huckleberry pie.

PoolWhile at Pinewood Social, one can dine, bowl, lounge or go for a dip. We actually ended up talking to a guy who went for a dip while waiting for his dinner ressie.

TootsiesAfter dinner, we headed to the the Whitehorse Saloon for some live music and line dancing. Let me tell  you, peeps were taking their line dancing quite seriously! After learning the Southern shuffle, we decided to move on out. That’s when we landed at Tootsies for more live music. We finally called it quits at 3AM (this is VERY late for me!). These girls keep me young.

Sip N Cycle (2)I’m telling you right now: you DO have to peddle. There were a few times where we literally stopped in an intersection because nobody was pedaling. I felt like I was in a spin class! Fun Fact: The person steering this monstrosity worked at the Bluebird Cafe and was an extra on Nashville, the TV show!

PuckettsWe dined at Puckett’s before heading out for the night. Luckily, I picked a seat next to another gal who loves food just as much as I do. We went halfsies on chicken fried chicken and short-rib mac n cheese. Thanks Lucy!!

Broadway at NightAfter dinner, we found our way back to Broadway and hit up Acme Seed & Feed. We walked up the many flights of stairs to the rooftop and from there, we had a clear view of Broadway. It’s so pretty lit up! Later on in the evening we ended up at Wanna B’s. What bach party would be complete without a round of karaoke? We ended on a high note (literally) and headed home.

Country Music Hall of FameWith a few hours to kill, we decided to get in some Nashville culture. Hello, Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum.

    Nashville has always been on my probably-someday-but-don’t-need-to-go-right-now travel list, but after seeing/reading this, I am definitely looking into planning a trip sooner rather than later! What a fun spot for a Bachelorette too!
