We recently visited one of our favorite cities, Nashville! 48 hours of sunshine, catching up with out of town friends, and immersing ourselves in all things country. We stayed at the perfectly located Omni Hotel so we could take advantage of the rooftop pool.

The first night we were able to visit Husk, and it did NOT disappoint. The restaurant is set in a historic mansion and serves up southern-focused dishes. My personal favorite was the charcuterie board filled with house cured meats, cheeses, and homemade cheddar biscuits.

The weekend was filled with bar hopping on Broadway, brunching at farm-to-fork Adele’s and a laid back acoustic Dave Matthews set at the amphitheater on the river, such a perfect weekend.

This was my 5th time in Nashville, here are some more places in Nashville not to be missed:


Already missing Nashville and the Halls!


Here are some Nashville looks from the weekend:



With Cinco de Mayo and summertime right around the corner, today I am sharing my go-to guacamole recipe with you. When it comes to this refreshing summer yummy, less is more in my opinion. Keep it simple and let those fresh avocados shine!

This recipe is always a hit and a staple up at the lake house.  Because of the fresh avocado, it must be made right before serving, but sometimes I prepare the 4 ingredients ahead of time and just dump in fresh avocados at the last minute.

Serve it next to tortilla chips, shake yourself a margarita, and enjoy!
