Tennessee Christmas

We're back and unpacked!  It was a fun 5 days with my-side of the family in Nashville, celebrating Christmas.  We have always talked about getting away for the holidays and decided this would be a good year to make it happen! We rented a cabin through VRBO and it was absolutely dreamy.  It was beautifully decorated by Pottery Barn and had everything we needed for a fun holiday getaway including a gorgeous white flocked Christmas tree!  It was located on a 100-acre horse ranch so needless-to-say, it was breathtaking & Juliet loved seeing the horses everyday.  


We kicked off our "fun-old-fashioned-family-Christmas" with steak dinners at a locally-famous steak house close to the cabin, but not before we let the kids open just one gift!  And yes, I have a real "ugly Christmas sweater" that I wear all season.  I'll do just about anything in the name of festivity!


We lazily hung around the cabin Saturday morning and explored the grounds. We got to see the Ryman Auditorium and attend a live show there Saturday night. 


After Craig Campbell finished playing he handed his pick to Juliet.  
Such a sweet memory.  It's tucked away in her keepsake box for safe keeping, just in case! 


Sunday was spent doing what all Southern Americans do best, a little shopping and eating! :)  

Ok... Maybe a lot of shopping.  After shopping we took the adults kids to the Aquarium to eat dinner. Totally cliché, but they loved it.  :)  



Monday we got to see the Opryland hotel.  Such a cool place to visit.  Beautiful decorations, (it's free to get in=bonus), great food, and fun stores!  We got a caricature done while we were there and Juliet got to visit with Santa, which was short and sweet this year


Monday morning we opened gifts.  We were so excited to give my brother and his wife their presents.  They are HUGE Suits fans so we bought Suits t-shirts from the NBC shop.  His was Team Harvey, her's was Team Donna & ours were Team Mike & Team Louis.  I would've been Rachel, but come on.. you can't leave Louis out!  Then Tuesday morning we headed out.  Lots of fun was had by all... Until next time, Nashville! 

Happy Holidays Everyone!
