Nashville…The City and The TV Drama

Whew…my 4 days in Nashville have been a whirlwind of emotions. It wasn’t exactly a relaxing getaway. It was more of a hectic, stressful, exciting, very busy business trip. I would love to share every detail of what is happening that is making me so stressed and crazy, but it’s just not the right time. And, NO, we aren’t pregnant.

Between the crazy moments there were some great moments. I got to eat and eat and eat and eat and eat. We had so much coffee and junk food, which was perfect for every stressful moment. I got to spend some quality time with my beautiful cousin-in-law. I celebrated Passover, got a surprise visit from Husband  AND, I got to visit a dear friend who I had tragically lost touch with over the last year. She now has a beautiful baby and we spent an entire afternoon catching up, reminiscing and starting off right where we left off.

After my girlfriend date, another business-like dinner and exactly 400 emails and phone calls I decided to take a break and visit Husband at work. He didn’t actually fly down to see me…He was flown in to work on Nashville (the TV show), my being there was just an added bonus.

I LOVE visiting Husband on set, any set. Working in film is not near as exciting as it seems. The workers mostly sit around and wait all day. The days are very long and not very exciting. (Not that they can complain, they get many fringe benefits too!). Visiting someone who works in film is exciting. I like to be able to visit, pick up some snacks and coffee at craft services, watch the actors for a bit, wear headphones so I can hear the jokes everyone cracks back and forth between takes and then leave when I get bored of seeing the same scene for the 400th time.

I didn’t want to be one of those people snapping photos and looking like I don’t belong, so this is the best pic I got. (Don’t tell anyone, but I have yet to actually watch an episode of Nashville… However, watching this dramatic scene over and over got me hooked and I would like to see the outcome now!)

This particular scene was being shot on location at a home in Nashville. It was freezing outside and most of the crew had to be out there for 14 hours. When I arrived there were people either huddling in front of space heaters, eating catered Bar-be-que, powdering Connie’s nose, or texting on their phones. It was just all so glamorous.

I’m already back in NYC, it seems like I just left. I have a friend coming to visit me tomorrow who haven’t seen in almost two years! Can’t wait to tell you about our adventures. With this particular friend wild times are sure to happen!

Cheers!
