Life as we know it

It's been a month since we've been living in Nashville. I'm still adjusting to the change and find myself missing Idaho. But we've been having a good time :) We don't have a lot of time together as we thought we would cause Kyle now has to take one of the reps out everyday. His friends decided to go home after two days out and they were his ride, so since Kyle is the manager he has to take him. It's really lame cause we don't see each other all day until the night when he comes back to the office. His day starts at 9am and ends at 9pm. So with the little time that we have, we've managed to explore a few sites.

No matter where we go, we must ALWAYS take a picture of the football stadium :) If you can believe it, last summer this stadium was drowned by the river. Crazy huh?

Downtown Nashville. There were so many people playing the guitar or some kind of instrument for money. It was crazy how many there were. There were a ton of country bars and live bands playing. And did I mention the five boot and cowboy hat stores, haha. There was also a large group of teenagers who where homeless, probably runaways, asking for change. It was really sad, especially  since one could smell then from a few feet away. Oh, and I met Elvis :)


This is one of the many cowboy hats and boots 
store that I mentioned.  We felt like being a little
country, so we tried on some hats.

I call this building, "The Batman," only because it reminds me of Batman for some reason. Maybe its the points. They remind me of the points on his helmet. But in fact, it is the at&t building. This one below I call, "The Deceptive Rollercoaster." I really wish it was a real rollercoaster. That would be awesome!

We sat by the river and just enjoyed the view. There was this really awesome bridge that went over the river. In fact, when the flood occurred the river came up to the brim of the bridge. I still can't believe it!


This was our crazy adventure in the heart of Nashville. Here is the Hard Rock Cafe Restaurant. We really want to eat there sometime soon! Downtown Nashville, it was real. Thanks for the memories. Until next time :)

On Friday, we were blessed with the opportunity to attend the Temple. The Temple is really small, but beautiful.  It was a FANTASTIC experience!!!! I'm sooo glad that Kyle was able to break away from work so we could go. I love going to the Temple. There is always so much peace and happiness. It definitely makes your day better by a million times!!!! This is the 7th temple we have been too :) 

So we got kinda bored and decided to travel to Rome and see the Parthenon. It was really exciting and definitely a sight to see!!

Alright, who am I kidding. We didn't go to Rome, but we did see the Parthenon - that is a replica of it. It was still really exciting!!! The designs were so intricate and the structure is AMAZING!!!

This is one of the MANY MANY churches here in Nashville. The reason it graces my blog is due to its steeple. I have NEVER seen a steeple that size and length!
This Saturday, we leave for TWIN FALLS, IDAHO!!!!! We are beyond excited :D It'll be so nice to be with family and a familiar area. We call it our escape from the drama and work of Nashville. Kyles brother gets home from his mission tomorrow, so we are going to go to his homecoming talk and have a nice family vacation. It's been two years since the whole family was together, so it's going to be great. I've never met Dallin before because Kyle and I met a month after Dallin left. I'm pretty nervous, but excited at the same time. I'll post pictures and stories about our mini vaca!
