I recently had the chance to escape to the Margaritaville Restaurant in Nashville. It is located in Downtown Nashville at the corner of Broadway and 4th Ave, right in the heart of Music City. Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville is the perfect place to escape to and leave your worries at the door. When you get there go inside and enjoy islander decor, tasty margaritas, and live music. Plus, kids are welcome too. My kids enjoyed looking at the seaplane hanging from the ceiling, the piano steps, and everything else that Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville has to offer.
August had some fun, new tasty foods that were featured at the restaurant. The loaded tater tots were a family favorite; which are crispy tots covered in cheese, bacon, and chives. For my meal I ordered the wings; because lets be honest that is what I order everywhere. I do have to say that Margaritaville Restaurant's wings did not disappoint. The wings had just the right amount of sauce and was accompanied by blue cheese and celery. And, of course, when at Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville one must order a margarita so I gave the new Pear-A-Dise Maragarita a try. Don't get me wrong the Pear-A-Dise Margarita was good but I do prefer the original.
Next time you have the chance go ahead and Escape to Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville and let all your worries wash away.

Happy National Book Month!
Subscription boxes are a growing trend. Who doesn't love getting mail? And with subscription boxes it is like getting a surprise in the mail each month. Half the time you forget about it so its like Christmas when you get home and see a fun package waiting for you!
I came across a book subscription for kids and thought that it would be perfect for my boys. Every time a package is at the door they immediately get excited and want to know what is inside, but the majority of the time it is nothing of interest to them. The Bookroo subscription box is perfect for children because it comes with 2-3 books based on their reading level. You can choose 3 board books (for babies) or 2 picture books (for kids). And I chose the picture books based on my childrens ages.
We got home one afternoon to find our Bookroo package sitting at the door. They could tell from the cute kangaroo on the front of the box that it was for them. They always ask you to read the label so they can confirm who the package is for :). They were so excited to open it and were even more excited when they opened the box to find two wrapped gifts!
Once they got the books opened they could not wait to read them! I love that Bookroo sends hidden gems that you do not already own and that are harder to find online and in stores. They have an extensive review process where each book is reviewed by a panel of 12 families. This subscription book is a fun affordable way to build your child's book collection!

2 Innovative Toys
2 All Natural Bags of Treats and a Chew
In conclusion, I thought that this was a great box for my pups. They love getting boxes and were excited when this one arrived and it was for them. As I opened in they immediately started trying to get a peek. One grabbed Heggie and the other the boots. They were excited to get to try a couple new treats and seemed to like them both. I think that this subscription box is worth the money and gives your pups fun toys each month and new healthy treats to try. I look forward to seeing what future themes they will have!
When you have children one of your main concerns in safety. They are in the car day in and day out so you want to make sure that when you choose a car seat that they are protected. I was given the chance to review the Evenflo Sureride DLX car seat and would love to share my findings with you.
The Evenflo Sureride DLX car seat is very affordable and can be purchased for under $100. It is a convertible car seat so it can be used rear or forward facing depending on your child's age and weight. They have a few different patterns to choose from but I liked the grey and black and it looked good with the interior of my car. The first thing that I noticed was that the seat was very lightweight. When I took it out of the box it was fully assembled and I was able to install it in under 10 minutes. Which was great.
It was easy to get my youngest buckled and ready to go in the seat. He seemed to be comfortable while riding in it. I did notice that there was not a lot of padding to the seat, but he did not seem to mind too much. He did complain when I first tightened the seat about the shoulder strap bothering him but we were able to fix that and go on our way.
I would definitely recommend this seat to someone looking for a budget seat or a 2nd car seat for grandparents and/or baby sitters. It seemed safe and sturdy but did not seem like it would be extremely comfortable for long distances.

Have you been wondering what the big white tent in on the side on Briley Parkway? Well, there is no need to wonder any longer. It is the temporary home to Odysseo - Cavalia! This show is filled with a one of a kind performance comprised of horses and acrobats that takes place under the big white tent. The show typically last 2 and a half hours with a short intermission. Snacks and drinks (including adult beverages) are available to purchase, or if you want to opt for a VIP package they include a full dinner buffet.
Odysseo opened last night to a Sold Out show! The audience was filled with people in awe of such a wonderful performance. It is definitely a show worth catching before they leave town. As the billboards say, "Best Show Ever". Currently there are performances almost daily between now and September 17th, but I did see that they are looking to add a few more dates.

Housewives in the City teamed up with Piper Layne to host a giveaway for a Utility Tote ($59 Value)! The utility tote is a great way to carry things and for on the go! With the open top it makes it so easy to just toss what you need inside, pick up, and go!
I was so excited when I got home to see a slim, nicely packaged box on my front porch! When you open your Piper Layne Box with your bag you will receive a cardboard slip that gives you information on Piper Layne and that also highlights steps for how you can receive a Free top cover for you brand new utility tote.
The thing that I first noticed was the heavy material that the utility tote was made of. This material is very industrial and even with two boys I know my tote will be around for a long time. I love that they are collapsible for easy storage and they can be thrown over your shoulder with the shoulder straps or can carry it using the side handles. But I will have to say that my favorite feature of the bag is that it is attached to the frame with strong velcro, which means you can take it off the frame and throw it in the wash! Yes, you heard me right it is Machine Washable!! How great is that! They have a great selection of fun bold prints to choose from.
Piper Layne is also offering an exclusive discount code to Housewives in the City followers. Enter the code "Cool In The City" at checkout and receive a FREE cooler insert with the purchase of a utility tote!
