Bachelorette Weekend in Nashville

I've been feeling a bit frustrated with the blogging world. Lately it seems like you're not a "real blogger" unless your pictures are perfectly staged and splashed with gold glitter, fancy quotes and fresh flowers. I have fun sharing makeup finds and outfits I've styled, because let's face it, I'm about as girly as it gets. Honestly though, I've never been one for following the crowd. So pictures of macaroons and peonies, although beautiful to look at, aren't an honest reflection of my daily life, which is what I want my blog to be about. I've realized that the most unique thing I have to offer to the blogging world is my life, and my experiences, so that's what you'll be seeing a lot more of around here. Life isn't perfect, so I don't want to make my blog look that way in order to feel accepted.

Now that I got that off my chest...
One of my "little sisters" from my college sorority days is getting married in a few weeks, so we headed to Nashville for her bachelorette party. Jordan and I lived together my senior year of college, and we have one of those rare friendships where you can not talk to the person for a few weeks or months but quickly pick right back up where you left off. I wouldn't have missed her special weekend for the world, but I was a little nervous because I didn't know some of the girls going on the trip. Such a girl thing to be worried about, I know.
Well, it was a great weekend! Nine of us piled into two rooms and did all the typical things you do during bachelorette weekends. We found the best brunch spots, which included lots of Bloody Mary's and the most delicious breakfast I've ever had (a quesadilla covered in scrambled eggs and salsa from Jackson's). We walked along the river, wandered in and out of all the country bars and some girls even bought boots. When in Nashville, right?
We tried to visit The Bluebird Cafe, but I think it's become pretty popular since the show "Nashville" and kind of hard to get in. A picture in front of The Bluebird still counts right?
Lately I've realized that the friends I have now will be the ones who will be there for me during the next milestones in my life - weddings, babies, etc. It's so cool that I've known these girls throughout different chapters and I can't wait to support each other during these next ones. Jordan is the first one of my close friends to get married, and I'm so glad that I was able to be a part of her bachelorette weekend. I can't wait to watch her walk down the isle in a few weeks!
Nashville, you're pretty fun. This Texas girl can't wait to visit again soon.

Looks like such a fun weekend!! Nashville is one of my favorite shows so I loved the picture of the Bluebird. :-)

And loved your paragraph at the beginning especially! I totally agree with you. I love sharing fashion and beauty posts on my blog, but I try and share personal posts at least a few times a month as well! I think that one of the most special parts about having a blog is the personal aspect, and I want to show readers that my life isn't always 100% perfect, or all "peonies and glitter" ;-)

I think reading about real life is awesome! I think the best thing about blogging is that it should be a reflection of you, it's not about doing what everyone else is doing! Just blog what makes you happy!
This weekend looked so fun, I've always always wanted to go to Nashville and never been!

Looks like a fun trip! I'm obsessed with Nashville (the show) and that stinks y'all couldn't get in there.. but the pic is still great :)

First paragraph? too true too true. Although as a kid I was known to go hog wild on my grandmas peonies.
I knew Jordan from UNCW! And I think I see Jerger in there as well! Funny how paths cross like that! Small world!

Completely agree with your first paragraph - totally takes away the fun in blogging!

Trust me. I would much rather read your blog than look at another picture of macarons and peonies and white background with a perfectly placed laptop, handbag, and Starbucks cup. I like learning about people's lives, so keep doing what you're doing.

Wow it looks like a blasting bachelorette party!! I loved having a look at these photographs. My sister is also planning hen’s party and wants to use a funky theme for that. We haven’t decided the party spot yet but it will be held at some rooftop Seattle venues.
