Quick Trip to Nashville

I love Nashville. I have always loved Nashville. So, anytime I can make the short drive for a quick shopping trip or visit friends, I'm totally up for it. This time, I went to see my best friend in the entire world play in a band called Darling Parade. They. Are. Amazing. I rode along with Casey's sister Lindsey and her husband Mike.

When we first arrived, we got to do a little shopping. I love shopping in Nashville. :) We went home, changed, and headed to The Muse. I'll have to say, it was quite an interesting venue, but we still had fun. And DP ROCKED.

This band is going to be big, I just know it. If you get chance, you should definitely check out their myspace (, find them on Facebook, and follow them on Twitter (DarlingParade).

Lubbock, Texas


Wow...haven't blogged in a while. Things have definitely been crazy. Now that I am finally moved into my new apartment in Tuscaloosa, hopefully it will slow down a little and I'll have more time to blog. :)

I have SO many things/events I need to blog about, but my trip to Texas cannot wait any longer. :)

Earlier this month, Casey and I flew to Lubbock, TX to visit his parents. First of all, I love his parents. I am so thankful that they allowed me to come along with Casey to visit them. To be honest, I had never heard of Lubbock until the Conrads moved there. I was expecting a little hole-in-the-wall-middle-of-no-where town. HA! Lubbock is the complete opposite! Mr. R actually told me that Lubbock is BIGGER than Southaven AND Olive Branch put together! And it was.

Much to my surprise, there was a LOT to do in the town of Lubbock. Every store you could ever need is there, and boy did we do some shopping. :) My favorite shopping stop was at World Market where I bought a few cute things for my new apartment.

Casey's parents took us to many great places to eat, but my favorite was Orlando's. It was a really neat Italian restaurant. Oh, and we just happened to stop in on "All You Can Eat Spaghetti, Salad, & Garlic Bread" night. Mmmm mmm good.

We had so much fun in Texas. We shopped, ate, visited, and watched the CMT Country Video Countdown ;) BUT, my favorite part of the trip was when Mr. & Mrs. C took Case and I to the lake for the day. The lake was absolutely beautiful and the weather was perfect.

Our trip to Texas was one that I will never forget. I can't wait to go back again!!! :)
