A Favorite Dress for a Night in Nashville


Since I went on and on about how much I liked the new H&M store, you no doubt already knew I spent some time in Nashville a couple of weeks ago.  The original purpose of the trip was not just for H&M, it just happened to be an added bonus, nor was it just to get chicken feed, more about that in a bit, but the main reason we were in Nashville was for a night out that had been planned since way back in January.

My guy and I are picky, we have very discriminative tastes when it comes to what makes for a night out involving the whole dinner and a show scenario.  Maybe once a year we find someone or something playing that we enjoy, and could see ourselves spending the money and time on.  So this year, we caught a show at the Ryman, and had a great time!!  But really, a night out in Nashville, for the most part, has yet to be a disappointment, music or not.  And I even got to spend my end-of-the-school-year giftcard for the Cheesecake Factory; the drinks and cheesecake were delicious!  (The food was pretty good too, by the way.)

A night out and therefore a chance to wear something a little different.  And, like most girls (I think) I didn’t have a thing to wear!  This just means I didn’t finish even start making my new dress that I was too hesitant to make last month.  I wasn’t planning on buying anything new, so I had to go with something I already had, and really, it wasn’t that hard to find.

Before this night, I had only worn this dress once.  Why, I don’t know, it is probably one of my favorite dresses.  My mom bought it for me a few years back, and I can’t believe it has just been sitting there all this time, and I can’t believe I thought I didn’t have a thing to wear.  I know, yeah right!

So that was Thursday and that was the main reason for our trip to Nashville.  But since we were there, we took a short drive north to an organic farm to buy some grains for an upcoming batch of chickens.  I can’t believe it, but yes, I have a slight hand in raising our own food.

Who would have thought, dinner and a show, plus a trip to the farm.  What a life… but I love it!

  1. I NEVER have anything to wear either 😉 And then I find out, just like you, that I really do…and I can’t believe I thought I didn’t! I mean, all those trips to Goodwill have to have some effect on my closet! haha. I am still guilty of buying a new outfit whenever I make plans for a drink/dinner/outing….it just always feels like I need a new outfit for the occasion! haha, something in my closet already couldn’t possibly do. Glad you found something you really liked for the night out!

    And I love the Ryman! Good choice- what show? I’d love to meet ya if you are ever back here again- where do you live now? I currently work at the listening room on 2nd ave so. downtown off of broadway and demonbreum. We are a music venue/restaurant, along the lines of the bluebird, but bigger and better. We have scheduled writers’ rounds every night. And you are right- there is really never a bad night in Nashville!


    1. The Ryman is great, and from my experience, so are a lot of the places in Nashville! We saw She and Him, it was a good show. I have never been to the Listening Room or even to the Bluebird, so I have a few things to add to my list of places to check out.

      I live about an hour and a half away (west 100 miles or so) unfortunately, I don’t get there as often as I would like. Thanks for the comment, I will definitely have to check your place out! 🙂


Don't leave yet! Tell me what you think.
