A Weekend Getaway

Jeremy and I just returned from a quick weekend trip to the mountains of East Tennessee. Not a big trip or a fancy one. We drove down Friday afternoon, stayed in a Holiday Inn Express, and didn't eat at even one fancy restaurant...but we had a great time. Wonderful, just the two of us. We shopped a little, ate a little, saw a movie, spent some great time together, rode in the car at times without the radio even on! We talked...nothing heavy, just talked something we don't do much of at times. I got to drink plenty of Starbucks, which made me very happy!!! (Recently I tried Starbucks after admiring it from afar for years...let's just say I AM A FAN!) My pocketbook has felt the sting a little, but I don't indulge in much so I think I am entitled to coffee. Jeremy got to do some hunting type shopping courtesy of Bass Pro Shops so he was happy too!

The movie, It's Complicated, was cute, but more something you would go see if you were over 40. Jeremy and I were just two people in the tiny group that was under the age of 50 in a packed theater. Now I know we are getting older too, but that movie had a lot of gross moments for us. People our parents ages, kissing, etc. GROSS! We are just not ready for that yet, no offense to anyone!

We went to Bass Pro Shops, and several other little shops which was fun. We drove up in the mountains yesterday before we left and saw some snow. It was really pretty in the places where the steam or mist had frozen on the trees.

We had a really good meal at The Chop House Friday night. We ate at the Hard Rock Cafe in Gatlinburg on Saturday night- we had an appetizer and dessert. Sunday morning we ate at Cracker Barrel for breakfast and it was yummy!
I just really enjoyed spending time with Jeremy. Things are about to pick up for him at work and that quadruples the stress around here. It was nice to get away for a couple of days before all that begins. Jeremy's grandparents volunteered to come up and watch the kids so they had a great time as well and we didn't have to worry about them one little bit. I wish we could do it more!
