Gatlinburg, TN

Happy Monday! My son and I just got back from spending a few days in Gatlinburg, TN with my parents. We had a fun time with Nana and Poppy! Got some great pictures which will make a great storybook :o) We have stayed at the same motel for years; Marshall's Creek Rest which is cheap, clean and within walking distance of everything. We have our favorite restaurants picked out that we eat at every time we visit. Applewood for breakfast, Park Grill for dinner (best kids menu anywhere; $.75 per year of age!), Dixie Stampede show that my son LOVED with horses, racing pigs and even ostriches! We also spent a day at Dollywood riding the rides and even saw a Veggie Tales show since Kids Fest is going on right now. I love Dollywood; very family oriented, clean and the people that work there actually seem to enjoy it!

There is a neat HM story that I must share with you. The last day of our trip we decided to drive up the mountain on Ski Mountain Road to a restaurant called Mojitos in the Mountains. I wasn't too sure about it since we were the only people there. But we went in and the nicest lady (Laura) greeted us and showed us to the cutest dining room. We had the best breakfast and service! When my dad was settling up the bill he noticed there were various business cards up by the cash register. He suggested that I leave some of my HM cards. Laura asked what I do so I told her about HM and showed her one of my books. I always carry my books everywhere! She was SUPER excited and got chill bumps just from seeing my Vacation 2007 book! She asked if she could buy my book right then and there! I said sure, that I could order another copy. She bought my book and took some marketing materials to place by the cash register. Already I could tell that ideas were spinning in her head. She suggested having a Girls' Weekend and Digi Crop in Gatlinburg. Mojitos has free wi-fi so it would be perfect. I'm looking forward to planning this with Laura and hopefully some of you will join us for a weekend of cropping!

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I live in GA also-Macon. I also noticed that your son calls his grandparents Nana and Poppy. My kids call my in-laws the same thing! I've never met anyone that called them that!\\

Come by anytime.
