So I’m In Nashville. Again.

My cousin Paige and I drove up this afternoon so we can hang out with Sister, and I’m going to liveblog the ASCAP Christian Music Awards because, well, Sister’s friend Dan asked me to.

And we love Dan.

So Paige and I went downstairs a few minutes ago and got ourselves all spiffy in the ladies’ locker room (we’re at a country club), and THERE WERE CANISTERS OF SNACKS THERE, so clearly I’m never leaving.


I take a large container of trail mix very seriously, my friends.

Especially when the trail mix contains M&M’s.

Anyway, now we’re sitting in the main room listening to Phil Stacey do his soundcheck (and he is ROCKIN’ IT, and don’t get me started about how surreal it is to sit here in a room where he’s, you know, PRACTICING), and just a few minutes ago I snapped a picture of Sister while another band you may have heard of did their sound check.


That would be Mercy Me.

So I’m going to sit back here in my little corner and snap pictures and write blog posts. It’s like I’m in my own little geeky heaven right here in the middle of the fancy singer people.

This is gonna be fun, y’all.

Check back in a little bit for more updates.

  1. I’m jealous in a nice Christian way. Have fun. And eat some of those chocolate chip cookies for me!

  2. How fun!!!! I hope you have a great time!!!!

    PS I love your label for this post!

  3. Wow!! I hope you have a wonderful time! I LOVE Mercy Me.

  4. Can’t wait to read more! Have fun!

    Oh … and … is it even considered Trail Mix if it DOESN’T contain M&M’s????

  5. You are the coolest person I have never met :) Have fun we internets are living vicariously through you. I’ll be thinking about you when I am cleaning toilets tomorrow.

  6. That’s so cool! My cousin works for Mercy Me, he’s one of their sound guys. I betcha he was there. Say Hi to Bobby for me!
    You get to do so much fun stuff. Color me super jealous.

  7. Yah? Well, I’m doing laundry! So there.

    :) Have a fantabulous time! More pics, please.

  8. That sounds like the best evening. Evah.

  9. If you have time this trip, or at least on your next trip to Nashville, you must eat at the Puffy Muffin. It’s on Franklin Road in Brentwood next to Fresh Market. Sister has heard of it, I’m sure. It’s simply the best…blogworthy, even.

  10. jealous… yeah, thats what i feel, jealous…. have fun – and let us know all the fun stuff that goes on!!!

  11. SO not fair. I wish I could fit in your purse and be in music/geeky heaven with you. Oh, and tell Sister I said she’s just gorgeous and I’m going to steal her hair. :)

  12. What? No chocolate fondue this time? …

    you need to talk to Sister about that for next year :)

    Have a geeky blast for all of us…

    I’ll be back later to see what’s the haps!

  13. I’m sorry, but how did you get a picture of Heaven’s countertop? :)

    Y’all have fun!!!!

  14. How fun! I’ll split some of that trail mix with ya’, or maybe I could get my own jar . . . is that cashews I see in there?

    Have a blast, dear Sophie!

  15. can’t compete with that, nooo sir. have fun.

  16. I, too, can appreciate the trail mix! My slightly-more-than-overweight sisters and I (and I’m included in the slightly-more-than-overweight part) keep the trail mix handy at all the family gatherings because, well, you never know when the urge to take a hike might hit you and you have to be prepared!! (We all hate to sweat, so this is a huge joke for us!)

  17. So fun! I’m only sad that you and Bethie didn’t get a blogable moment. Have the best time and thanks for letting us live it vicariously through you.

  18. You have a nice gig going there, don’cha know? Yes. I know you do. Have fun!

  19. Looks like so much fun! Can’t wait to hear and see more!

  20. Can you surreptitiously pick all the m&ms out of the trail mix and put them in your purse while you’re bloggin’? That might be fun, too. And then there would be the chocolate to look forward to afterwards, too.

  21. I’m not sure I’d want to stick my hand in a cookie jar that is in a locker room! But it does look yummy.

  22. Don’t know what gets me more smiley: M&Ms in trail mix (otherwise, what’s the point?) or Phil Stacey.

  23. Want to know what else is surreal — when your husband works with Phil Stacey’s mom and is all buddy-buddy with her.

    Yes m’am – my husband works in the OR with her. (and he performed at their Christmas party.)

    Hope you are having an awesome time!

    xo ~K

  24. Umm, are you allowed to be in Nashville and not go to the Compassion dinner. I really don’t know what to feel. You are here me too and we are not gonna see each other. It was not the same seeing Shawn to night. Not with out you there to call out his name. That sounded bad, you know what i mean. :) H

  25. *SQUEAL* Lucky!!!
