Hello Southernistas! I know it has been a long while since I’ve posted anything and I am sorry. One of the reasons is that I have been preparing for what I’m going to talk about in this blog which is my trip to Nashville, TN with my Mother to meet up with some amazing women that I connected with on the Dia & Co Facebook Community. This community was created by Dia & Co for Dia customers to come together and lift each other other. It is truly a safe place and I’ve gotten to know some awesome women on the community.

I’ve connected with ladies here in North Carolina through Dia & Co and thanks to Laura Mokelke who organized the get together I got to meet some truly amazing women and discover a place I’ve never been to but always wanted to visit. Some of the ladies arrived on Thursday and the rest of us arrived Friday.

The Air BNB we stayed in was really nice and with 12 women sharing this house we made it work. I think it was perfect! It was not too big but not too small the house was cozy and it created a togetherness that allowed us girls to really get to know each other

When Mama and I arrived on Friday and got settled in we got to greet everyone. There was a lot of hugging and of course the fashion was firece!

The weekend that we were in Nashville there was a lot going in Nashville that weekend. There was the Tennessee Craft Fair, Octoberfest, Vanderbilt University was having Homecoming so we had a lot to choose from. We went to the craft fair that was held in Centennial Park. Centennial Park is worth the trip because there is a full scale replica of the Parthenon and is one of the locations that Percy Jackson & the Lighting Thief was filmed. There is a small fee to go inside the Parthenon $6.50 for adults and $5.50 for seniors and children. I didn’t get to go inside because I really wanted to attend the craft fair but it is truly a marvel to behold.

After the craft fair we went back to the house to change and go out to dinner. We went to Monell’s at the Manor for dinner. I highly recommend Monells if you’re looking for good southern cooking family Monells is where you want to go.

After dinner we returned to the house to talk and laugh and the most fun we had was an impromptu clothing swap. I was able to get the Girl with Curves Coat dress from Jennifer Conner at a great price and Michelle did a Dia unboxing. We talked we laughed and it was a great end to the night.

Stay tuned to part two of my adventures in Nashville with my Dia sisters. Also my friend and now fellow blogger will also have a blog post up about the Nashville trip.

Until next time Southernistas remember BE BOLD, BE FEARLESS, BE CONFIDENT!
