Friday's Fave Five


It's Friday, which means it's time once again to link up our five favorites of the week at Susanne's blog Living to Tell the Story. Some of my favorites of the week include:

1. The regional soccer tournament last weekend that I posted about yesterday. We didn't win but we sure competed!

2.  My husband had a business trip to Nashville and our two younger sons and I tagged along. We stayed at the Opryland Hotel which is huge. And amazing. And gorgeous. Here's the view from the balcony of our room. We had an interior view, mind you, so all that you see is inside the hotel. Incredible!



3. As part of our trip we took a spin on the General Jackson showboat for supper and a show. The supper was okay but the show was fantastic! It was a retrospective of sorts, featuring (you guessed it) country music through the years. I grew up on country music and was an avid fan in my college/newlywed years so it was great fun and the performances were really good.

4. I won a $50 cash doorprize the last morning of my husband's conference so we stopped at the mall on the way out of town and I purchased a new charm for my charm bracelet. Fun!

5. It's fun to go, to soccer tournaments and to beautiful hotels alike, but I'm a homebody at heart. In fact, I'd rather be home than almost anywhere and I think sometimes my husband must feel as if he has to pry me the out the door with a crowbar! That being said, the best part of going is coming home. I love to come back home!

What were your favorites of the week? Link up your Friday Fave Five over at Susanne's!

  1. So glad you got to vacation at the Opryland Hotel. I have yet to go there, but I hear it is fabulous. The showboat tour sounds like a lot of fun. And you won $50??? I’m a homebody too, so even though I enjoy going, I love coming home.

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Congrats on winning the door prize! That sounds like a fun treat. And I believe i have seriously underestimated the Opryland Hotel. That looks beautiful!

  3. Using your dh's business trip as a "mini vacation" was an ideal move. How fun to go on the General Jackson showboat. The only boat like that I've been on was at Disneyland. I like coming home best too. I've been known to drive many, many hours without stops just to get home sooner.

  6. You had a view of the fountain show....I love to visit Opryland Hotel...we've celebrated several of our anniversaries there since it is in February and cold outside, the gardens are a lovely spot to spend the weekend.
    Your trip sounds special...I know you enjoyed it. I like going on business trips with my man.
    Have a blessed weekend,

  12. Oh, I am such a homebody too. My husband knows better than to ever "surprise" me with a trip. :) Congrats on the door prize and charm -- very cool!
