4th Anniversary Memphis Trip

It's been a whirlwind of a month! With the beautiful Spring weather comes lots of activities. I'll back track a little here - March 31st was our 4th Anniversary (crazy!) and so we decided to steal away and visit Memphis, TN. 

The drive to Memphis should be pretty straight forward but the traffic from all of the trucks makes it a somewhat stressful drive. But before we knew it we were in the Volunteer State ready to celebrate!

Of course the first thing EH wanted to do was check out the giant Bass Pro Shop at the Pyramid.

We have a Bass Pro Shop here in Little Rock, but the Pyramid is really impressive. 

The best part are the live animals everywhere. I could spend hours just watching them!

After Bass Pro we headed to our hotel to freshen up and get ready for dinner. We picked Flight and it was perfection from start to finish.

Similar to a brewery where you can order a flight of various beers in smaller sizes, Flight offers everything from their appetizers, salads, main courses, and desserts in flight form. Even the wine!

The food was delicious and it was so fun getting to try several different types of wine. EH finished off the night with a flight of three different scotches. How fun is that!

After dinner we hit up Beale Street.

It was fun walking in and out of the different bars, and we were lucky our hotel right off Beale Street. The only Uber we had to take the entire weekend was to and from the restaurant the first night.

Saturday we woke up and headed to the Gibson Guitar Museum, also conveniently across the stress from our hotel. 

These two in the shop were my favorite. I love the birds!

Unfortunately for us they don't allow pictures back in the factory but if you get an opportunity, make sure you visit this museum! We got to see each part of the guitar making process and even got to see some limited edition guitars - one designed for Foo Fighters front man Dave Grohl.

From there it was more patio sitting, bar hopping, and just enjoying a weekend away with each other.

Then Sunday came too soon and it was time for a quick brunch at the Majestic Grille

 It was so nice to get away, even if only two hours from home! Best way to celebrate our anniversary.
