Keith and Nicole Sighting... Minus One

I've claimed Nashville as home all my life, but that was mostly because no one had heard of the small city about 20 minutes from downtown that I actually lived in.

So I've technically been a Nashville resident for a little over 3 months now, and I've had my second celebrity sighting. You may recall I saw Taylor Swift in Whole Foods 2 weeks after I moved to my new place.

And I've seen other fairly famous people and have met a few around here even before I moved into the city...

But the one thing I've been waiting on was my Keith and Nicole sighting. Most Nashvillians have had one, or they have at least seen Keith Urban around before he was famous and/or before he married Nicole Kidman.

Today a bunch of us ran the 11.2 out at Percy Warner Park. When we hit 9-mile hill, a few of the group ran on ahead while Liz and I slowed down to walk up the last little bit. (Don't judge if you don't know about 9-mile hill. I felt my heart pounding in my throat.)

We found everyone else standing at the top, along with two other women. As we all started running, Liz pointed out that one of the women had been Nicole Kidman. I took a quick peek back, and sure enough, it was her.

She ended up running behind us for a while, but she turned around before she ever caught up. When we were all finished and stretching, she and the other woman drove by on their way out. One of the guys waved, and she waved back.

Nothing super exciting, but it was pretty neat to see her. By the way, that woman is so tall and thin!!! We were talking about how there have been baby bump rumors, but we can say for sure there was no bump to be seen. She is super skinny. It was fun to see her out running the hills!

Obviously I need to go to different places (or get out more) b/c I am still on a mission to see them! And last night I stayed home while Andy made a quick trip to Whole Foods in Cool Springs ... where he saw Brad Paisley in line right in front of him! I think I repel celebrities.

Clearly, I need to get out more because I have yet to see a celebrity (that I know) since I moved here.

So glad you got to see Nicole, though! That's so cool!
