So we are in cold cold Nashville, and my connection is way slower then at home. We (meaning MAMMa, Rhonda and I) got here from Phoenix with no problems, my BFF Tracy on the other hand had her flight cancelled but she was able to find one a bit later and she landed about half hour after us, so fate was on our side.
When we got here there were some snow flurries but we got a cab (couldn't understand a dang word the cabby was saying) and we headed to the motel. We got here checked in, we got adjoining rooms with MAMMa and Rhonda so all is good, but this place is HUGE and I don't want to be by myself cause I will never find my way around. We grabbed a quick bite, met the other two BFF's Becky Roberts and Kim Sinclair and chatted it up, with other friends, new and old.
Then we changed and got ready for Managers Reception, we loaded the buses…
…and headed over to Wild Horse Saloon, what a fun place.
We had a great dinner, there were three tiers and we were on the bottom on the dance floor so we had great seats, so we could go scoot our bootie anytime we wanted.
Shelli looked adorable as usual and welcomed us all, then we all said grace.
The guy that went on first was Dave Robbins, he used to be in the group Black Hawk and he has written a bunch of songs, and it was good to hear some of my old favorites.
Then a band that is going to open (I think they said) for Kenny Chesney called Brother Trouble played for us, they were good .
The dance floor and the crowd.
The dancers were great trying to teach us line dancing, I sucked, but I do know the electric slide and they did that a few times.
We took a few more pictures…ummm, can you see what we got before we loaded the bus? Yep we all got a cowboy hat!
Then headed back to the hotel. We found Becky & Kim, and all us gals went for a drink…
…and then headed for bed about midnight. So forgive me if the post is quick. I am so cold I just wanna get on my warm jammies and get into bed.
I'll holler at you tomorrow, I will try to tweet and facebook…orders from Lydia! Ha!
Have an awesome Wednesday and thanks for stopping in.

Welcome to Nashville! We loved living there. The Wildhorse is such a blast, glad you got to experience it. Are you all staying at the Opryland Hotel? It is HUGE!!! But so much fun. We loved going there, and stayed there one time so we could get the full experience. Hope the snow flurries end soon and it warms up for you. Enjoy your time there until you come back here to AZ (which isn't much warmer at night). Can't wait to here all about Leadership. 🙂

Love your reporting from Nashville! I have been to that hotel, it is immense. The next time you find or walk by a hotel desk, pick up a map and have them show you where your room and meetings are. Then keep it with you, you'll need it!
