We're Going to See Dolly!!

See how hard I'm working here?  (I really have a messy desk!) Well, you won't be able to see that for a few days because we are headed to Pigeon Forge, TN and Dollywood.  We're all so excited! We're taking the kids out of school for 2 days. That's unheard of for us. You have to be almost dead for me to let you stay out of school, so I think the kids are still kind of confused about missing 2 days!  They actually said, b-b-but we have homework due and a test and we earned extra time for break on Friday!! I'm like, Well, stay here and Daddy and I will go alone! They didn't like that!! We worked out for them to get their work done early, so the school's all good.

We LOVE Pigeon Forge and Dollywood. We've been almost every year for the last 6 or 7. We go summer and winter. Christmas at Dollywood is beautiful. I can't wait to show you pictures when we get back. Unfortunately, I will have no internet at our cabin. I will miss all of you terribly!!  I'm looking forward to spending time with my family but I WILL miss reading everyone's blogs. It's hard to read them on my iPhone. How will I survive? How will I ever catch up when I get back?!!

Lise will be here to keep you company and keep you amused!! Try to keep her straight. I know, I know. It's a full time job.

So, we took a bunch of pictures this morning and I didn't really like any of them. I thought a couple were funny. In this one, I'm looking like I think my dog gives that same look!
Key neckace is from Charlotte Russe. Love their jewelry!
Shirt is OLD from Goody's. I miss that store!

I just liked the blurry hand in this pic.
The cords are from Old Navy and sooo comfy!

See you next week!!

  5. Have fun! I've never been but my in-laws have taken our kids for two days (the first and so far the only trip kids took without us). They loved it. Nina brought back pink light-up glasses shaped as a butterfly and wanted me to wear them.

  6. I love those red cords! They're super cute and very festive! They'll be fun to wear through the holiday season!
    And, yay for the REM connection! I wish they'd just magically appear in a bar up here in Michigan, but, yay, that's probably not gonna happen.
