I packed my first full weekend here full of fun activities!

Chipotle on The Commons

My view for dinner Friday night. Not bad.

Friday night I was pretty wiped so I enjoyed some Chipotle alfresco on The Commons then spent the night browsing various websites to find all the awesome things I want to do while I’m in town. I had quite a list by the end of the night, so I decided I needed to divy it up if I had any hope of getting things done – otherwise I’d just stick to a routine and never try anything new!

Saturday
I slept a little in on Saturday because I was up pretty late (for me) thanks to the lounge that’s right outside my door and its popularity with the locals (students/proctors here for a summer program). I decided to head off to Shelby Bottoms Greenway to check out part of the trail and greenway there. Nashville has an amazing network of greenways and has a plan to develop them further, and Shelby Bottoms did not disappoint! I found myself in an open field less than 10 minutes from downtown Nashville.Wide open spaces

It was amazing. So peaceful and quiet. I loved it! I’m definitely going to explore some of the other greenways – it’s a great place to walk and run and get my much-needed nature fix.

I even almost ran into this gal on my trek...we were both surprised to see each other!

After sweating it out in the morning I got some BBQ in a little neighborhood called 12south. Edley’s BBQ seemed to be quite popular and it also did not disappoint. I tested out their pork BBQ (gotta compare it to NC pulled pork) and while it was different from my favorite Eastern Carolina style barbecue, it was delicious in a new way. I was about done sweating for the day after that so I spent the rest of the afternoon in the shade reading magazines and books. I got to go to bed early which was great, and got lots of sleep that night!

Sunday
I was able to get up pretty early and head over to Centennial Park to try to beat the heat for a run on their mile-long loop around the park. It’s a beautiful place to run over there, but even before 9 am it was HOT!

Not a bad view for a morning jog.

After that I grabbed some lunch at a cute little coffee shop with a hearty menu, Fido. I’m sure this will become one of my more regular places – great menu, lots of seating, interesting people, and walking distance.

The McFido. YUM.

My big afternoon excursion was to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. I had a great time walking through the history of country music and seeing some awesome artifacts.  Here are a few of my favorites:

Ponies on your car? Why not!

I always get a kick out of seeing the Batman building!

I’ll take some ponies on my car and a sparkly dress or two, please! We’ll have an event at CMHOF during CommonVU so while I mostly went to enjoy myself, it was also good to become familiar with the venue. I was pretty tired after a jam-packed weekend, so I made my way home, got some groceries, and called it a night after that, ready for a new work week. I’m looking forward to this weekend already!
