Homemade casserole and BEST roll ever!
We stayed right in downtown Nashville in the heart of Vanderbilt. For our first night in town, we decided to live it up right. We went to the Loveless Motel for dinner. The Loveless Motel is an iconic restaurant on the outskirts of Nashville. We were told that Tim McGraw had visited a few days before us. If you love southern food, this is the place for you! Country fried chicken, green beans, mac&cheese, blueberry pie, and of course…sweet tea! Oh, and the best biscuits and jam that you will ever taste! Don’t worry…they’ve got a company store on property where you can purchase jam for the road. (an online store for those of us who just can't wait to get there HamsandJams.com)

By that point all of our energy was spent, with all of those carbs you can imagine how tired we were!
After dinner it was time for the concert we had come for, and what would top off my birthday weekend. Matt Wertz was headlining, with Ben Rector opening for him. If you haven’t heard of either of these Nashville native singer/songwriters, please stop reading this blog and head over to iTunes to check them out! I have been a huge fan of Matt for a long time, but I am an even bigger fan of his friend Dave Barnes. Dave and Matt have essentially grown-up together in the music world, often playing together. Since they both live in Nashville, and are best friends, I was keeping my fingers crossed that Dave would make an appearance at Matt’s show that night. Fate presented me with the best birthday present ever…probably the best birthday ever… Dave showed up! That absolutely defined my weekend in Nashville as the best weekend ever. And further solidified that Nashville is absolutely where I belong, and one day I will call it home…
