It's a great day in the neighborhood!

Good morning, good afternoon, good evening and goodnight everyone! It feels good to be back! I enjoyed my mini road trip but it's always nice to be in your own home and own bed. 
First off, I guess I should share where I went running off to. I'm actually really surprised that no one guessed it, however I went to... (drum roll please) Pigeon Forge/Gaitlinburg, Tennessee

I love that place, I can't get enough of it! The fact that I might not get back there for a long time really saddens me but... hey you never know. I had a really great time. I went with my mother this time and we always have a great time on trips together. Sometimes I wonder how women who aren't close to their mothers go through life. I love my mom and no matter what she'll always be my best friend. Here's a photo of us together, waiting for the Dixie Stampede show to begin. 
(Pardon the fact that I look like a troll)
Every time I'm down there I always try to do something different. This time we ended up going to the Star Cars Museum over in Gaitlinburg. I'd seen it from the outside several times but had never taken the time to go inside. It was really fun. I got to see lots of cars from movies that I love. I'd have to say my top 3 were the following:
The Ghost Busters wagon
The jeep from Jurassic Park
And Bumblebee from Transformers!
After touring the car museum, I divulged into some serious shopping, where I bought a new Coach purse and these lovely items:
and this dress, which I love! 

I also bought 14 books but since I feel like I've written an entire book today. I'll leave the books for another post. Hope everyone is doing fabulous!

When I lived in Tennessee, I went to Gatlinburg at least half a dozen times a year! Now? I haven't been in three years.

I so feel you on the closeness with moms. i am very close with my mom and I couldnt imagine not having that relationship. it drives me crazy when i see girls who just dont get along with their mom at all.

I am very jealous of your shoes. i love running sheos and Nikes rock!

As awful as this is probably going to sound, whenever I hear about Dixie Stampede now I always think about how the Duggars went there on their tv show. But I'm glad you had a great trip!
