Giddyup Nashville, Here I am!

Well, this is it. Right about now, I'm hopping on a plane and zipping off to Nashville, TN to play and party with 5 of my favorite girls. Obviously I won't be posting for a few days but I wanted to leave you with something in case you thought I forgot about you.

Here's some of the things we're hoping / planning to do while we are there:

See a show at the Grand Ole' Opry: Steve Martin & his banjo happen to be there Saturday night. While I can't do real country music, I can handle some bluegrass. I hear he's good.

Visit the Cumberland Caverns in McMinnville, TN. Tuesday night I was reading an article in the June 2009 National Geographic called Deep South about some serious cavers in the south. The three states they talked of the most were Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia (also known as TAG). Well, the pictures made me drool as NG does! Cumberland Caverns is about an hour and a half away so it's an easy distance for a daytrip of exploring. We just don't have caves like that in the northeast!

Other places we are thinking about checking out are Arrington Vineyards and Belle Meade Plantation. We're only there Friday night through Monday morning so we don't want to over book ourselves. Obviously we'll be eating but I'm not setting my sights on anything specific. I just really want to sample southern food and have heard about too many places we must try that I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed. Going to let my belly do the walking and I'll come back and report what it finds.

Have a great weekend and I'll be updating in a few days!
