Be TRUE, Be BOLD, Be BRAVE! These are such great inspirations for the coming school year! This year, we decided to do our Back to School Shopping at The Avenue in Murfreesboro! Not only do they have fun murals but an amazing selection of shops and restaurants! The Avenue is a short trip over from Nashville and made for a fun “day trip”.
Even though we were technically shopping for the kids, I had to pop in one of my favorite stores, Altar’d State to check out their tax free weekend specials!
I found a cute new top and earrings for fall! Moms need “Back to School” clothes too, right? Altar’d State has a great selection of women’s clothing, accessories, books and gifts at reasonable prices.
Next up was Barnes and Noble! Our whole family could spend hours browsing the books. We picked up a few new reads to dust off our summer brains. One goal I have for the new year is to read more with the kids.
They have everything from t-shirts, Yeti’s, masks and a huge collegiate section to get fans ready for football season (hopefully!)
I’m already getting some ideas for my Christmas list!
I’m pretty sure that my kids know more about the latest technology than I do!
After we found school clothes and new shoes, the kids let me check out a few home stores!
All that shopping made us hungry! We ended our shopping trip with dinner at Newk’s Eatery!
Newk’s Caprese Sandwich and side of pasta salad is my favorite!! Their homemade bread is delicious!
Owen gives Newks a thumbs up! Don’t miss Tennessee’s Tax Free Weekend on Restaurants August 7th-9th. You can find a list of The Avenue’s restaurants here.
The Avenue has everything you need! It’s a new favorite place for us to go shopping and dining out! It was a family-friendly Friday night of shopping, a fun place to eat and excitement for the new school year. The Avenue wasn’t crowded, had safety procedures in place and we found special deals!
Stay tuned for H + M’s Grand Opening on August 13th! The Avenue hosts events! This Saturday is a Mommy and Me Yoga class, find the details here!
