Nashville Weekend

Got to Nashville yesterday for a rock concert. Bullet for my Valentine and Breaking Benjamin opened, followed by the main band and also Mike’s favorite band: Avenged Sevenfold. Really great concert! Bridgestone arena was sold out and packed!

We are staying at Sheraton Grand in Nashville. Nice hotel but service has been bad, more on that later.

Of course I had to get a basic tourist picture with the wings!

It has been colder in the south than it was in Sweden. Good thing I prepared with heavy winter clothes before Sweden so I’ve had enough to wear now that it’s freezing here.

Our brunch spot, you have to come here. Literally amazing and so inexpensive.

We asked our waitress about serving sizes and she said they were fairly small. We laughed when all our food came out as we both ordered to dishes each and portions were not so small 😂 (Mike’s other dish had not come out in this pic).

I got fruit, biscuit with avocado, chipotle sauce, egg, hot sauce marmalade (I believe), and pickled red onions. My other dish was home fries with prosciutto and fig toast (had goat cheese, arugula, gorgonzola cheese I think, and olives). YUM

Mike wondering how we would eat it all 🙈

Life update

Hi friends. Please accept my sincerest apologies for going MIA. I cannot guarantee that I am back fully just yet, but hopefully I can blog more than once every other two weeks. I should be back to blogging regularly after July 29th.

Why have I been gone? Where have I been? What have I been doing? I have not been blogging due to my workload in school. I am used to traveling during the summers, not having classes every day (although I will travel again in August, YAY, but more on that later). I am taking two of the toughest classes I have ever taken before, in addition to a third class. The classes have the same number of assignments, exams, work, etc. as regular three-four month classes, only we have to get everything done in seven weeks. After this summer semester is over I will finally have officially graduated though!! My days the past month have looked like this: wake up at 7am, get up at 8am. Workout, study, go to class, study, go to bed around 2am. During the weekends I have worked and studied. I am mentally exhausted and drained, as well as very sleep deprived, but I am not complaining because I can see the finish line. I will say that I have finally been working out consistently every week and I do not think I would have been able to keep my head above water these past couple of weeks without working out. Endorphins are the best. Thank you for reading this rant. HUGS

 

Food + Grace = Perfect day

Dreaming back to King Daddy's Asheville. What a great breakfast/brunch spot. Delicious drinks and mouth watering food. Wouldn't mind spending my Sunday here for brunch! Especially missing the sunshine Grace, she always knows how to put a smile on my face and make me laugh. We have been friends for nine years now, time truly flies. HUGS

How divine does this meal look? YUM. My mouth is watering thinking about how delicious it was. They update their menus daily at Seven Lamps, so it is always fresh and fun ingredients that are in season. I highly recommend this resturant, I know I will be back soon! HUGS

Mother's Day Dinner at South Main Kitchen

I love this restaurant and mom has never eaten here, so what better than to take her for mother's day? It is a rustic yet modern cute place with delicious food. I love their scallops but unfortunately they were out, but the burger I ordered instead did not disappoint. And how beautiful is my mom? She is so stunning <3
