It's a Crazy Town full of neon dreams: Spring Break 2011

Day 5: Wednesday March 23rd

All four of us headed into Nashville at 8:00am. We saw The Hermitage, The Parthenon, Cheekwood Mansion & Botanical Gardens, & Loveless Cafe, drove past The Belmont Mansion, & ate at Boscos Restaurant & Brewing Company. It was cool seeing The Loveless & The Hermitage!! It was threatening to rain all day & finally downpoured around downtown Nashville when we were in the car headed home. We got home around 6:00pm & made pizza & watched the Game Show Network again. We went to bed at 9:00am we were so tired!

Day 6: Thursday March 24th
We decided to head home since it was supposed to rain the next day. We left around 11:30am & stopped for supper at a (very classy) Golden Corral in Hannibal, MO around 5:30pm & ended up getting home around 11:00pm, unloaded the car, & crashed around midnight!!
It was a wonderful Spring break from reality, a dream come true to visit Nashville, & made me realize how much I want to live there! It was definitely a shock coming back to the 30 degree weather of Iowa...yuck! I have so much stuff to do in these next 2 weeks I don't even want to think about it!! I haven't started on any of it either!
