A fun time at Opryland Hotel

Our friend Jane arrived safely to Nashville on Tuesday night. On wednesday her and Mother and I spent the whole day in my Art Room working our Christmas Pendants for a swap that Jane is hosting. We finished them that night and they are so pretty. I will post pictures of them in another post.

Yesterday we got up and packed our over night bags and headed out. First we went shopping. We hit Big Lots, Michaels, and Hobby Lobby. We got to Opryland Hotel by sundown and made it to our room. We all were pretty wore out from shopping all day and went to the room to rest for a little bit.

Below is a picture of Mom and Jane resting on the beds.

After we were rested we headed out to eat at a very nice restaurant in the Hotel. Here is a link to the hotel so you can read all about it. Its a hugh Hotel and very beautiful inside.

After we had dinner we walked around inside the hotel. It have a hugh Atrium inside and its decorated for Christmas. There was a live Rockabilly Christmas band playing that we stopped and watched.

Then we walked around a little bit more and I took some pictures of the all the lights and decorations.

I really wanted to walk around more and look at all the decorations but Mom and Jane were still really tired as their health is not so good and they get wore out very easily. So we went back to the room.
This morning we got up and did a little more exploring and some shopping in some of the stores. It is a hugh resort Hotel and there is so much to see in it. We rent Mom a wheelchair and she really enjoyed seeing the hotel and the shops. But it is hard for Jane to do alot of walking so we didn't get to see all of it. But here are more pictures of what we did get to see. The roof in the atrium is all glass and it feels like your outside during the daylight hours.

Below are pictures of Mom and Jane.

I have a few more pictures that I will post at another time. I really want to go back there again and take alot more pictures as it is such a incredible hotel.
Tomorrow we are having a little Art get together at my house. Some more friends are going to come and we will be making Art and having a fun time. I will take plenty of pictures ot that too.
I hope every one had a great week and also have a wonderful week-end too.
