Best Girls Weekend Ever!

It has taken me a few days to recoup enough from last weekend to write this post, but it was one for the record books!  Two of my Memphis girls, Candace and Taylor, planned a weekend getaway, to visit Nashvegas, last weekend.  I was over the moon excited for my company!

The girls drove into town after work Friday, and quickly after arriving, we headed to Patterson House for a late night cocktail in a trendy location.  We didn't have to wait too long for a table, since we didn't make it there until around 11. The drinks were fantastic!  And it was a perfect location for a chill evening of catching up.

Saturday morning, we woke up bright and early for manis, pedis, and mimosas.  I got my first Shellac manicure, and I am impressed!  Not one chip and we are 7 days in....

Then we headed to Arrington Vineyard for wine tasting and a picnic lunch.  The weather was perfect and the sun was shining for our short drive to Arrington.  We were a little disappointed that on weekends you can only taste 4 wines, but on weekdays you get 8, but we still had a blast none the less.  One thing we didn't plan for were bugs attacking our picnic lunch!  Between spiders weaving webs on our wine bottles and bees taunting Taylor, we put on quite the show for the other patrons of the vineyard.  Maybe we just like the idea of nature....not actually nature :)
Isn't Candace's picnic basket/suitcase adorable!

After resting for a bit, we headed to Taco Mamacita for dinner.  We were beat from our adventurous day, but decided to test the honky tonk waters...We started at Paradise Park, and Jason James band was rockin as usual.  It was packed, so we headed over to Tootsies.  We were a little bummed there was a line with 40+ people waiting to get in, so we checked the back door and BINGO! We got in!  To say we partied like college girls would be an understatement....The band was amazing, and we sang and danced all night.  We had so much fun we didn't even realize the time and were VERY disappointed that they had to close at 3, but don't worry, we cabbed to the condo and woke up JK to let us in and tell him all about the best night ever. (Thanks for putting up with our shenanigans babe:))

Sunday we had a family breakfast at Cracker Barrel before they hit the road, and I was sad to see them leave, but so happy with the incredible time we had! 

Thanks Taylor and Candy for a great girls weekend, and ya'll are welcome anytime.  We still need to open our speakeasy for CEOs, even though careers are for poor people :)  And don't forget about fish-net night either.
