"SAIL AWAY WITH ME HONEY"

Can it be last weekend again please? For those of you who didn't know, the Hubby and I ran away last weekend to Nashville. We hardly get to see each other during the week [that's not an exaggeration] & we desperately needed some time together! We woke up early friday morning [aka 11:00am], stayed Friday night, and got home late Saturday! It was such a great trip! I hope we get to go on another one SOON....... hint hint josh:)

"Quick take a getting away pic with me...."

Yeah, that worked out. thanks babe
Much better, although, Josh is too tall & I always cut him out when I take them;)

The entire way down it POURED rained except for the last hour. It was seriously so bad & at one point we ALMOST were apart of an 18 wheeler wreck. Could have been bad but Jesus heard our trip prayers and spared us all! Praise Him!
Here's a few roadtrip videos to enjoy : WARNING, we are BIG dorks who got bored:)

Finally the rain cleared & the beautiful Fall weather graced us with its presence :
&& with its beautiful colors :

Then we FINALLY reached our hotel [it's only a 3 hour drive, not bad at all!]

We immediately got all dressed up for our date night & shopping at the Opry Mills Mall!
If you don't know the Mall, it's a super popular, tourist attraction in Nashville. Lots of Fun!
Here's us in our Sunday Best.... kinda :
I take alot of pics okay? So sue me.... :

Josh found this uper cool vest. He makes me sick sometimes, he can pull off the coolest things. What can I say... My mans h-o-t:) {it looks way cooler with the right shirt & tie under}

We decided to eat dinner at the famous RAINFOREST CAFE! Such a fun experience : Here's some of the Restaurant :
Here's some video of it... Josh gets so mad when I video him ESPECIALLY when he doesn't know it:)

It was a successful shopping trip. Payless was having that Oprah sale [get 50% off your total] I got two pairs of shoes & a scarf and Josh got a pair of shoes all for $45! YES! I also got a cute shirt & josh his vest!:)

On Saturday, we went out for another day of fun :

We started out with a breakfast at good Ole' Crackel Barrel!

After we were STUFFED : we headed to the Green Hill Mall....this was a BIG disappointment considering the fact that everything in there was WAY expensive. I'm talking stores like : Bebe, Coach, Gucci, Louie Vutton, Betsy Johnson, Juicy Couture, Sacs 5th Ave. Yeah, and those were the cheaper ones... We did buy me some new Express Jeans! WHOOP! Love me some Express!

We then decided to see a movie. We saw Couples Retreat since we were a couple...on a retreat..haha. It was pretty funny.

Josh has a good buddy who lives in the Nashville area. After the movie, we went to see him & his sweet wife. This church was on the way and Josh couldn't get over the SUPER tall steeple!

After the visit, we decided to head home! The drive back was WAY more peaceful!
We got home just in time to watch one scary movie in honor of Halloween:)

Sunday ended our GREAT SUPER AMAZING weekend with church, family time with Josh's parents & of course, last minute school work!

We woke up this morning immediately wishing we could be back in Nashville:( Monday hit us full force & the next few weeks will be just as busy as ever. I'm so thankful the Lord allowed us to have this weekend. & even when the days get waaayyy more busy than they ever should, Praise Jesus I get to see my Husband every night....even if it's only for 30 minutes;)

What a special weekend! Glad you had a good time. We've been to that mall and Rainforest Cafe (although I'll admit, the noises in there scared my little guy half to death!)

I know you don't know me, but I have enjoyed your blog and all your trash to treasure posts. :)You were actually out in our neck of the woods! You're right. Green Hills is way expensive. It's like the upper East side of Nashville. Glad you guys had fun! The rain was a bit much, though!

You crack me up with those pictures. DH and I did the same thing on our road trip to Santa Fe. A zillion pictures and mini videos of the road...and we were driving through the desert! LOL. It was beautiful, but very hard to capture from a moving car. Didn't stop me from trying tho. So glad you had a great time. Get aways, no matter how short are such a God send.
