Tomorrow Bob and I are going on a mini "staycation" That is what I am talkin about!!! We live in Knoxville, which is a hop, skip and a jump away from the Smokey Mtns, and the shopping mecca of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge.....we are gonna shop there for fireworks.......AND.......this is what I am all excited about!!! Pigeon Forge is full of outlet malls.....seriously. From major places like Old Navy, New Balance, Ikea......and they have a shop called Scrapbook SUPERSTORE!!! A SUPERSTORE!!!!!! I am dying to go and Bob is dropping me off there tomorrow while he runs up the road to shop for gun stuff.....lol. Ohhhh be still my heart!!! I have heard from lots of people that stuff is cheap, cheap, cheap there so I am excited to see for myself and see what i can drag home with me.........and if it truly is a SUPERSHOP I will take pix!!!!! Ohhhhhh and just for Julie........Pigeon Forge is also home of the "As Seen On TV stores" LOL.....Every product ever seen on tv late at night with the catch phrase "BUT WAIT!!! THERE"S MORE!!!!" I gotta get pix of that for her!!!!! LOL.
So I am looking forward to a child free day out with my Mr. and we are gonna have a nice quiet dinner out someplace that doesn't have toys with thier meals......LOL.
So I will most likely be a little scarce this weekend....ya'll deserve a break from me once in a while :)
But I wanted to share a few LO's that I have done in that past that all have a patriotic or all american theme to them......just to get you in the mood for the weekend :)
I've scrapped this photo a million times......lol
this is Branon last summer
LOVEEEEEE this one!! This is why we can celebrate Independence day!! God bless those men and women that leave everything behind to fight for our freedom so we can enjoy the lives we lead today.
And this one is someone I do know......and these photos are from the FIRST time her hubby laid eyes on their sweet baby girl. It gives me chills to see this and it nevr fails to make me tear up.
So while you are enjoying your Independence day please remember the reason we are able to celebrate that independence and that freedom is most definately not free! Many people have paid the ultimate price just so we can enjoy the freedoms and the rights we do have.
