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”
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 “BRICK & SPOON”
Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort provides an opportunity for park goers and visitors to “stay and play” in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. Their in-house restaurant, Song & Hearth, serves up casual elegance that will make you feel right at home and the best part is that no one has to fight over who cleans the dishes. I was lucky enough to get a private viewing for You, Me, and Tennessee readers! Let me show you around Dolly’s place. Continue reading “A LOOK INSIDE SONG & HEARTH”
I consider the art of making pottery to be part of my Appalachian heritage. From a young age my parents encouraged my older sister and I to learn how to “throw” at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. I was most certainly the child who got gold stars for effort behind the pottery wheel but my sister, Katie, really found her niche and she is still working with clay all these years later at Alewine Pottery.

If there’s one thing I know, it’s good donuts. I have favorite donut shops in multiple cities across the U.S. and zero shame. So you know that I have to share with you loverly folks when I find a winner and Five Daughters definitely stacks up.
Bring your daughters, your friends, and your acquaintances but also bring an insulin drip because this place is legit.
Even though there are far too many things to do in Chattanooga for one weekend, 3 days is a great place to start. After living there for 2 years I certainly have a short list of favorites. The best part is that I was a college student while I lived in “Chatt” so I know how to pinch pennies while I’m there. Stick with me, kid. I’ll show you where to go!

Buffalo Mountain sticks out in my mind not only for the gorgeous views but because this is the first trail Joe hiked without a leash. I was originally very anxious about the whole thing but then again I’m never not anxious so I decided to try it “just this once”. As usual I was worried for nothing and he did beautifully. The only downside is that now it has me wishing we could take him with us every time we go. Continue reading “BUFFALO MOUNTAIN HIKE”
We visited Harvest Moon Pumpkin Patch in Wears Valley last weekend with my brother and his wife. The weather was beautiful and I have to say I’ve never been to a place with the variety that Harvest Moon had to offer. I liked the “Cinderella” and “Fairy Tale” pumpkins best. No surprises there! Continue reading “HARVEST MOON PUMPKIN PATCH”
I officially became “Aunt Carly” on Wednesday and I couldn’t be happier! I won’t share too many details because it’s my sister’s birth story and not my own. I will say that he’s cuddly and likes to be held. Music to my ears! I hope y’all enjoy these snapshots I took at the hospital. I’m thrilled that my sister allowed me to be there for the birth of her son and to share these moments with you. Continue reading “MEET MY NEPHEW ARLOW”
