Not such a great attempt afterall..

Well, I was going to try to get back to my normal blogging process this week. I had good intentions...and then life happens...ya know.
I'm trying to get some extra work done because we decided to take a trip with the kids at the end of the month. So I need to work ahead on my schedule a bit so I don't get behind. Where are we going..TENNESSEE! We are going to go visit some family that's there and we are even going to hit DOLLYWOOD! It looks like lots of fun.

So this week I've been trying to plan the trip....get ahead with work....dealing with my power being out one of the days (which was actually good because I got some boxes unpacked) daughter getting strep AGAIN because she had an allergic reaction to the antibiotics....which of course means being stuck at errands did not get ran! All the while I totally neglected my blog posting!

I'm really looking forward to going to Tennessee. I've never been there. I've been to Atlanta before (5 years ago for Girls Getaway Weekend) but we spend most of our time together hanging as family and shopping. I'm excited to see the South and experience some Southern Hospitality! It doesn't look like we are going to make it to no Elvis for us! I must confess that I really had to get out a map and get my bearings as far as that part of the country goes. I can't believe how many states border TN. Honestly if I had to fill out a blank US map I don't think I would get it right! Would you? Too bad we can't actually remember all the stuff they taught us in school!

I will try to do better next week with posting! Thanks for coming back and checking in!


  1. You are having TOOOOO much fun girl :)!

    Just stopping by to say ignore my plea for help email----I got it all worked out :)!

    Have a fabulous time....can't wait for pictures!

  2. Tennesse is a gorgeous state! You guys will have such a ball! I have been a blof only there were more hours in the day!

  3. Way to go on "going"! I so need to go somewhere right now! Hope you have a great time! (saw you working through the window last night and enjoyed the conversation with your daughter and neighbor.....they were so talkative.....I looked at Steve and said "that's our future.....all of the 'and likes' included" It was fun and I can't wait for more days like that. Those girls will be great babysitters.

    And yes, because I had the most incredible 5th grade teacher, I think I could come very close to filling out that map....with capitals? not so much.


  5. I can tell you have been busy I have hardly heard nor seen you lately. I hope your trip is fun. I expect to hear all about it! Tell Em we'll miss her while she's sick. Maybe we'll see her Sunday.

  6. We were just there last May. Dollywod is a blast. Pigeon Forge is pretty cool. It will be a GORGEOUS time to see the Smokey Mountains! have fun!

  7. LOVE Tennessee. If you are going to Dollywood you are just a short jog to Gatlinburg. And if you are that close to Gatlinburg you MUST, I repeat MUST eat at the Log Cabin Pancake House. I'm not even kidding. You have to go there.

    Tennessee/Dollywood are lots of fun - I hope you enjoy your trip!

  8. My poor, sweet, Emily. Sorry to hear you are sick again. Hope you are feeling better real soon. As for traveling, have fun! Y'all never seem to stop.

  9. Yep I know how that goes!! Have fun in Tennesee!

    And no. I wouldn't even come CLOSE to getting that map right. :)

  10. TN is beautiful right now. I've lived here for 4 yrs and haven't ever been to Gatlinburg. I've heard it's great though. I hope you have lots of fun!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a note!
