My Weekend Getaway

On Thursday, we hit the ground running. I was able to cut out of work early and I hit the open road to start our weekend getaway. Where did I go, you ask? 

Pigeon Forge/Gaitlinburg, TN

The trip was just what I needed. I've had a lot going on. There's been so much debbie downer stuff going on lately that I haven't posted about. In short, my uncle (the one who's baby is due any day) has kidney failure.  So getting out of town was greatly needed. 

I had our own private cabin. I toured museums, watched funny shows, ate good food and shopped. Plus... hellooooo! It wouldn't be a trip to Tennessee without stopping at the Christmas store! 
Oh... the food! I ate at Mel's, Johnny Rockets and The Happy Days Diner. Yum 
 
I have tons of photos but sadly, these are the only ones I've got on the computer so far! Gotta love the iphone! 

I toured the Titanic, went through the Star Cars Museum and even hit up a few stores. Where I proceeded to add to my Coach bag collection...
The Coach Patent Leather Signature Logo Gallery Bag
 
Now it's back to the grindstone and planning our next trip. I'm thinking something overseas?

Looks like such a fun trip! Any trip that results in buying Coach bags is a great trip!

amazing pics...
I think Scotty & I will go in a few weeks. I wanted to go so bad this past week while he was in Cali but I couldn't find anyone to go with me. We love going to see all the Christmas lights they put up and the Christmas store like you went too.

So sorry for all of the negative things that are going on. Sending positive vibes your way :)

Last weekend (as in a week ago) I was supposed to go to Gatlinburg but it didn't happen and I've been SO bummed. Please tell me that the leaves haven't changed yet? Then I won't feel so bad :)

I am so close to Tennessee and I have never really explored it. :-)
How much damage did you do at the Christmas store? haha. I am sure you are just itching to start decorating.
