RHYTHM & ROOTS 2019

RHYTHM & ROOTS 2019

Bristol’s Rhythm & Roots Reunion is a music and art festival held every 3rd weekend in September on the state line between Tennessee and Virginia. Since we’ve lived in Bristol for the last 7 years we’ve been quite a few times and seen incredible headliners and talented artists from all over the world. One year my sister set up an art tent to sell her pottery which gave me a unique opportunity to see the festival from the other side. This year was much more relaxed because we decided to go for one day instead of all 3. Continue reading “RHYTHM & ROOTS 2019”

GRAZE BURGERS

GRAZE BURGERS

Girls night out has been scheduled at Graze for months now and after 2 failed attempts the third time was the charm! I’m excited to see how downtown Sevierville looks in the near future. How great would it be to have more restaurants and maybe even (Heaven help us) a brewery? Continue reading “GRAZE BURGERS”

BREAKFAST WITH THE BALLOONS

BREAKFAST WITH THE BALLOONS

I don’t get out of bed early for just any occasion but I happily made an exception for hot air balloons. They make me feel like I’m in a story book or a fairy tale with their rainbow colors and promise of carrying me away. Continue reading “BREAKFAST WITH THE BALLOONS”

VISION QUEST VR

VISION QUEST VR

Yesterday was the official opening day of Vision Quest VR virtual reality arcade and learning center in Johnson City. I was fortunate enough to land an invite to the soft opening on Saturday and try out these very very expensive toys for myself. You know I’d never send you some place I didn’t like and this one you have to see to believe. Continue reading “VISION QUEST VR”

50th WEDDING ANNIVERSARY AT STILL HOLLOW FARM

50th WEDDING ANNIVERSARY AT STILL HOLLOW FARM

We had the pleasure of attending the 50th wedding anniversary party of Jay and his beautiful bride Ann. They’re the owners of Still Hollow Farm in Greeneville where my husband and I were married. The breathtaking farm has been in the family for generations and is part of the National Register or Historic Places. Returning a year and a half after our wedding for such a special occasion was everything we hoped it would be. Continue reading “50th WEDDING ANNIVERSARY AT STILL HOLLOW FARM”

GO BURRITO!

GO BURRITO!

If there’s one thing I could eat 7 days a week it’s Mexican food. Anything served with chips and salsa is an automatic “yes” for me. My husband and I even went to Mexico on our honeymoon where we got to enjoy all the guacamole, quesadillas, and margaritas that our hearts could desire. I heard a new restaurant was opening in Johnson City that served our favorite food and wanted to share it with you! Continue reading “GO BURRITO!”

WILD VINE AT ZOO KNOXVILLE

WILD VINE AT ZOO KNOXVILLE

Last Friday we went to Wild Vine at Zoo Knoxville to raise money for animal conservation. Drinking wine for charity? Wild animals couldn’t stop me! To be honest, they were the main event. Continue reading “WILD VINE AT ZOO KNOXVILLE”

SNAPSHOTS FROM MAIN EVENT

SNAPSHOTS FROM MAIN EVENT

There’s no better way to blow off steam after a long work week than going somewhere fun with friends. Main Event more than fit the bill for our crew with a massive arcade, a bowling alley, billiards, and laser tag. To top it all off they have a restaurant and bar in-house. We each purchased a ticket package that included a game of laser tag, a bowling lane for 6 people, and some extras for around $30. The arcade was pay-per-game but they were all around $2.00 or less. We had an absolute blast and can’t wait to go back. Take a look at this place! Continue reading “SNAPSHOTS FROM MAIN EVENT”

BEST NEW BRUNCH SPOT IN PIGEON FORGE

Now that I’m living part-time in Gatlinburg, I get to see my friends who live in this area more often. That means more girls’ days and girls’ nights out and I welcome those opportunities to unwind in my current state of chaos. Recently I met Kass and Hannah for brunch at Brick & Spoon in Pigeon Forge and we had such a great time I thought I would share it with you. Continue reading “BEST NEW BRUNCH SPOT IN PIGEON FORGE”
