Real Men Play Hockey

I had to use that title on my Pinterest page too. You need to check it out. You won’t regret it. Hand to heart. Anyway, last weekend, I had the pleasure of seeing the Nashville Predators play against the LA Kings. Sadly, my team lost but it was so much fun. My daughters along with my best bud, Meda White, went with me.  We enjoyed a little sightseeing. The sun came out just for us. It’s our sunny personalities. HA!

By the time we left Nashville, the girls were fans. (Especially watching hockey players exercise. LOL!)

So many cute bars and shops to check out!

Crowded, but not horribly so. Music spilled out onto the streets everywhere.
IMG_1024
The whole crowd. (Yes, I’m terrible at selfies. I’ve been behind the camera for many years for a reason.)

I just thought it was cool. Yes. I’m a newbie.
Exercise that!
Exercise that!

My chocolate RITA (Everyone got one at the award ceremony. It tasted like Easter Bunny.)

I couldn’t resist and got Meda to take this picture while in our cab. HELLO KITTY! GIANT HELLO KITTY that is.
