An Easter Weekend

Happy (belated) Easter!

Hope everyone had a great day with there loved ones.  Since we now live WAY too far away from family to be traveling back for every single holiday, we spent the weekend in Atlanta with some good friends.  Our friends invited us down to there home in Atlanta and we had a great time.  There was a lot of food, shopping, mini golf and video games involved.  Good times!

Kyle and I are sort of obsessed with the Man vs. Food show as of late.  Since we live in a new part of the country that we never thought we would live in, we have be exploring and finding all the hot spots to go eat at.

Here in Nashville we went to Jack's BBQ.  We were told and saw that it was best BBQ in town and everyone was right!  It was amazing and still the best BBQ I have had EVER!

In Atlanta we went to Vortex.  It is a burger spot with a bar type of feel.  It was great!  There were TV's all over (it's basketball finals so there HAD to be TV's) and had a really cool feel to it. Man vs. Food went here and at the largest burger ever!  So many choices.

Crazy much?  Yes!  But delicious!  So if you are ever in the ATL and want a good burger this is the place to go!

We went to a few other great spots as well, played 3 rounds of mini golf (Kyle won of course) ;) and made a traditional Easter dinner on Sunday. It was just perfect!

Our First Visit to Nashville!

Back in February, Kyle and I went to Nashville for the weekend to see where we wanted to live. (We still lived in Parker at that time.) Kyle's work paid for the trip which was awesome!  We had no clue where to live since neither of us had ever been to Nashville.  We knew that we wanted to be close to the city but not in the city and we knew that we wanted to be close to Kyle's work.  We ended up finding a little place in Brentwood/Franklin which is about 10-15 minutes south of Nashville.  It is a great area that is historic yet developing very quickly...perfect.  Kyle's work is only 10 minutes away and we are located close to everything, which is just what we wanted.

Anyways, back to us visiting in February.  The weekend flew by.  We were busy seeing different locations, houses and apartments as well as.....grubbin' on some food!  Nashville is known to have some good BBQ so Kyle and I were on a mission.  We had heard that there was an awesome well known place in downtown Nashville so that was where we headed.  The line was outrageously long which stinked since it was raining out side but that was a sign that the food was we waited.  It was worth the wait.  The food was awesome and I am sure we will go back.

By the end of the weekend we were pooped!  It was a great trip since we found out where exactly we wanted to live and we also found a place to live.  Score!

Overall, great first time in Nashville!
