Who's Up For A Road Trip?

I’ll admit that I didn’t take very many photos on my quick trip to NashVegas with the pals.  However, I did keep the kahuna in my lap while on the road.  Just in case.

Nothing cool or fantastic or out of this world happened but I took photos anyway.  And after sorting through them, I’ve decided they are pret-ty-bor-ing.  But I ain’t got nothing else right now.  So it’s either keep my big fat mouth shut for today or… well I can’t keep my big fat mouth shut.

So I present to you: The Road Trip.

Nashville.  About a 3 hour drive from Louisville.  Not too shabby considering all you have to do is head south on I-65.  But 3 hours leaves a lot of time for discussion.  Like boys, music, gummy worms – you know, all the good stuff.

Road Trip

BG is the mile marker that told us we were almost there.  It is also the mile marker where Sweet Child Of Mine started playing and I did my best Axl Rose impersonation.  You’re welcome, fellow passengers.

Road Trip

You KNOW you’re in Nashville when you see the Batman Building.  Which Abby shared with me that her work buddies make fun of her for calling it the Batman Building.  I asked why and she said because it’s actually the AT&T Building.  To which I replied, “But it looks like Batman’s hat, Abby!!”

She agreed.

Road Trip

It was BEAUTIFUL outside.  Absolutely wonderful weather.  Windows down.  Radio up.  But I’m a lame-oh and developed a migraine and passed *GASP* on the opportunity to walk the streets of down town.  I needed a nap.

My fear has happened: I’m getting old.

Road Trip

I believe this is Broadway.  Chocked full of shops and honky tonks and traffic.  And sunshine.  And headaches.  Boo brain, boo.

Road Trip

So we did our nap.  We did our getting ready.  We did our going out (which was SO MUCH FUN). And we did our sleeping.

Now, I could tell you a very humorous story that involves one friend and one pair of undies

And then we woke up and went home.  The End.

Road Trip

I had a wonderful time with my gals.  It’s stuff like this, the conversations, the jokes, the missing undies that make me realize I’ve surrounded myself with special people.

Thanks for the great time, Abby & Kelly.  Now I can officially say “BRING ON BON JOVI!”

Victoria - Ohhh… I have road trip envy! It’s been awhile since I’ve had one.
And we have a Bowling Green in Ohio. For me it’s ten miles away. And we say it differently, also. This I learned from friends of mine who are from New Orleans.
She says BOWling Green with the accent on the “bow” and the “ling” is clear.
We say BowLINgGreen with the accent on the “ling” almost cutting off the “g” at the end and almost one word. Does that make sense?
And why I’m goin’ on about this I don’t know. I just thought it was neat to see the other Bowling Green. I’ve passed through there a few times.
Thanks for letting me rant :)

shutterboo - I used to work with a girl who went to BGSU so I’m familiar. And I know what you’re saying – I think it’s neat to hear how people say Louisville.

shoutabyss - It’s exciting even just seeing the word “Nashville” on a highway sign. I hope to visit there someday.

And I like the way the text fits in your photos. In think that would make a great effect for a video.

And I totally see Batman’s hat! :)

shutterboo - I’d actually never been before – it was my first time. I’ve driven through it several times going to Memphis and Gulf Shores and Florida… but never stopped. But I got to see the Batman Building up close this time!

J. Smith - For what it’s worth I also call that the batman building as does my cousin that lives in nash-vegas.

Melissa - My Aunt worked for AT&T in that building. She and all other nashvegas folks call it the batman building too!
