If every weekend were a three-day weekend I would never complain.
Friday and Saturday I went down to Nashville for one of my best friend’s weekend bachelorette trip. We had such a great time and I don’t think I’ve laughed that much in a long, long time. Friday night, we went to dinner and around to various bars on the Broadway strip. Practically every bar has live music there and it’s almost always country (go figure!). We went to a karaoke bar, but there was an hour before our group would be called up. We met a guy that asked us to come up on the stage with him to be his backup singers. He was performing “this is how we do it”. Classic. Here’s the video in case you were curious.
Later we ran into Jamie Lynn Spears at one of the bars…no big deal. Apparently she lives in Nashville now and is back and forth between there and Louisiana. She was nice about getting a picture with us, though. She looks a LOT like Britney in this picture, too.
Saturday afternoon we did a scavenger hunt and those are always fun, right? Wrong. It felt like an enormous heat wave hit at the exact hour we headed out the door. Just kidding, the scavenger hunt was actually a lot of fun, I just like to complain. That evening, we went out to dinner again to the Melting Pot (fondue)…mmmmm! It was delicious. And again, we went out to various bars after that. We ended up finding a bar that played rap music. Trust me, I’m not normally in to rap music, but when it comes to dancing, there’s only so many country songs you can groove to.
Sunday morning, we all drove back to our homes and I met Chris in time for church since I only had an hour drive. After church he told me we were going on a picnic and then he had a surprise for me. I love surprises. Our picnic was nice. And sweet. And cute. After that, we headed up this country road and pulled up to a winery. It was really neat there. They took us on a tour of their facility and even let us pick fresh fruit off their vines/trees/plants. They actually grow all of their fruits used in their wines and don’t just add the fruit flavored juice at the end. So their wine is even more delicious than most.
The date ended with us at the river with Chris fishing and me reading a new book (it’s a new-found hobby). Then we played with crawdads for about an hour. It doesn’t take much to entertain us, but really, those things are neat. And fast.
Tuesday night, two of my friends wanted to go geocaching. If you don’t know much about it, here’s a link to the website: http://www.geocaching.com/ Check it out!
It’s basically like a big, world-wide treasure hunt. We found that one was close to us so we used the gps on someones phone to locate it. We were in the exact spot it described and of the gps coordinates. But no treasure. It had been muggled (gasp!). Muggling is someone who doesn’t understand geocaching and takes one of the objects, not realizing it’s part of a game. So needless to say, it was kind of a major fail. I hope to try again soon, though, and actually find the object. I felt a little bit like Nicholas Cage in National Treasure…only minus the billion dollar treasure at the end.
