Viva NashVegas...my new tattoo...

Our awesome rental car........NOT! We had a Hyundai...but it was nice too (Tammy)!
Welcome to Nashville Airport.
Legend's Corner bar...all the country greats past/present have played here.
My sweetie, Jason
The new Ryman Auditorium...home of the current Grand Ole Opry.
The old Ryman Auditorium...home of the previous Grand Ole Opry.
Famous Honky Tonk...The Stage...we saw Nashville Star contestant Matt Mason there on Wed. night. I got his cd, he autographed it and even asked me to take his tip jar around to patron's.
World Famous Tootsie's bar on Broadway...we saw Nashville Star finalist Melanie Torres there.
All dolled up, with somewhere to go. We had a blast.

Gage doing the outlining first...then the fill in.

The tattoo process...it really didn't hurt. Just felt like a bad sunburn.
Gage (my tattoo artist) and I post-tattoo. He did an awesome job. Thanks Gage
My First Tattoo...it says, "Faith".

We just returned from a 3 day 11th anniversary trip to Nashville, TN. We went there on our 1 year anniversary and because of a scheduled biz trip that Jason had, we got to spent our 11 year anniversary there too. We love Nashville. I could so move there. It's pretty, clean and lots of fun sights and sounds. We had a blast hitting Broadway's many honky tonks. The highlight of my trip was getting a tattoo. I've been wanting to do it for awhile and finally had the guts to do it. It didn't hurt, just felt like a really bad sunburn. So, now I have "Faith" on my foot. It really looks cool. Although, I know tattoos aren't for everyone, I like mine. Jason and I got to meet Matt Mason and Melanie Torres both Nashville Star contestants from years past. They both sang awesome. We had fun eating out, having yummy homemade icecream on Broadway and taking in the sights, sounds and spirits (and I don't mean ghosts).
Thank you to my best friend Heather for watching Luke for us and for Nana and Poppa as well. It was nice to get away, relax and enjoy each other. P.S. I KNOW I need a pedicure. Have to wait until the tattoo heals first.

You got a tattoo....(I'm bowing down to you right now)...I have always wanted a little tattoo on my shoulder blade, but I'm a BIG wuss!
I am glad you had fun in Nashville! Happy Anniversary to one of the Sweetest Couples I know!

Hugs & Love, BlueEyes

Watch Out! Once you've got one, you can never stop! If I had more invisible spots on my body, I'd be covered in tatoos!

I love your tat!!! You are so brave. I've heard it hurts so bad on the top of the foot. Now, I'm wondering if I should get one too. I've been thinking about it for years. I really like it. I'm glad Jason and you got a chance for some 1 on 1 time. I remember when you went to Nashville your 1st anniversary!!! Glad you had a good time!!! Nashville...ROCKS!

Okay, I REALLY want a tattoo on my foot and I have always been told that is the worst place to get one and will really hurt. I am glad to hear from someone first hand that it isn't so bad! Will you come to Iowa and keep me calm while I get mine? :) LOVE IT!

Yippee! You got a tattoo! I ahve several and just have to warn you that they are VERY addicting. You are VERY brave to get one on your foot first as that is one of the most painful places...

Happy Anniversary. Looks like you had a blast!

My Happy Fami-Lee! said...

Ok..so jealous. You popped your cherry tattoo without me. I have always wanted one. We will have to get Ole Blue Eyes and have a girls night out and go do one together. After a few margaritas that is....

Girl, you are brave! I faint at the sight of needles! For REALZ!!! Ask my husband, I am such a wuss! I love the tat though! Happy 11th Anniversary too!

Emily said...

Love the tatoo! Of course I think you got it in a perfect place too!;)

Hey, awesome tattoo! The top of the foot totally hurts, you must have a high tolerance. Mrs. Lee, I want in on that girl's night too. I've been wanting another!
