a get away

Ryan had his accounting/insurance conference in Nashville this year. The girls were thrilled to go to Ryan's parent's for the week and I was thrilled to go with Ryan. : )

It was great to get away and just unwind after the last few months. I'd have taken more pictures . . .but I was too busy reading my kindle by the pool. : ) Poor Ryan was stuck in sessions most of the days but we loved getting to spend our evenings together.

We got to enjoy an evening on the "General Jackson Showboat." They put on a dinner and a show that travels the time of country music. The performers were incredible (got to love Nashville - every one's trying to make it big and everyone can sing) and it was a fun night out.

Ready for one of Ryan's receptions one evening

After the reception we were still hungry : ) - one of the hotel's restaurants had fabulous sushi so we stopped to enjoy some.

And of course we had to stop by our trusty Haagen Dazs shop. The good news was it was a ways from our room . . .so I didn't frequent it EVERY day this year. : )

We had tickets for the Grand Ole Opry our last night. As we were waiting to leave for the show, I had to try on a cow"girl" hat for Ava

There was a HUGE crowd waiting to get in and it was hot and muggy

Are we having fun yet?

Because it was the night before the CMA Music Awards- it was a fabulous line up. Martina McBride, Lady Antebellum, Darius Rucker, Carrie Underwood, Jarod Nieman & the Oak Ridge Boys.

Martina was incredible

Lady Antebellum

Carrie Underwood

I had outfit envy - she made me want to move to Nashville and buy boots : )

The good ole Oakridge Boys. : )

Ryan's considering bringing back facial hair in a new way

Enjoying our last night away together - love this guy lots!

Until next year! : )
