Wait! Who? What? Where?

Whew... we just got back from a week in the Great Smoky Mountains near Gatlinburg, Tennessee. If you've never been, the experience mixes breathtaking natural beauty with good old all-American cheesy tourist trap fun. Kind of like eating corn dogs and funnel cake at the Louvre.

Now that we're back to earth, we are ramping up for school to start on Monday. I don't really know what I have been doing over the last 48 hours, I just know I have been driving all over town, using my credit card, and signing forms.

I cannot wait for Monday at about 9am. At that time, I will join Peanut on the back patio.


  1. Didn't know you had a beagle, we have two and three other rescue mutts. Your trip looked like a blast and I love your analogy of corn dogs and funnel cakes.....xox

    1. Corrine, Peanut is actually half basset hound. We got her thru Basset Rescue of Georgia. Her mom is full basset. The dad... well... who knows! We think she looks quite beaglish too. Don't you just love hound dogs?

  2. Love the photos from your trip! It seems like you're having a good time on your vacation and using your camera.

  3. Great pictures. I so love the one looking up at the cow at the fence. I'm assuming this is you using your new camera! Your holiday sounds like it was fun. Here's hoping Monday goes well and you and Preanut have a nice relaxing time.
