Another Sister Trip In The Books

Hello Hello, what a great time me and the sisters ( this includes my niece Tammy who is more like a sister to us)  had on our annual Sister Trip. There is four of us.   I probably laugh more in these two days than I do all year.  We have a great time!!!!

For several years we have been going to Gatlinburg although we have gone other places as well.  We have always stayed in Baskins Creek Condominiums and loved it. We have probably stayed there ten or fifteen times. Because of schedules we were only able to stay two nights so it was a pretty short trip.  Baskins Creek Condominiums has changed their policy for this time of year to a three night minimum. Booo we were not able to stay there.  We stayed at Park Place Condominiums. It is located closer to Downtown Gatlinburg so within walking distance of a lot of things on the strip. Park Place had an awesome balcony and that is all of the good I can say about it. We will not stay there again.  It is an older property that is in much need of some updates and repairs.

As I said we had a wonderful balcony overlooking the creek and it was so peaceful listening to the water.

We always stop in Sevierville on the way into Gatlinburg because we like the TJ Maxx there. I found a really cute dress that I love and I think it will look perfect with some black boots.

This is not the best picture but you get the idea.

After we got checked into the condo we sort of chilled out on the balcony and just hung out talking and laughing

On Thursday we went to the Titanic Museum. If you haven’t been there you should check it out. This is the World’s Largest Museum Attraction. It is located in Pigeon Forge.

Upon arrival each guest is given a boarding pass of an actual passenger that was aboard the Titanic. The guests then follow the passenger’s story as the exhibit proceeds.  The tours are self guided and at the end of the tour the guest discovers the fate of the passenger in their ticket.  We all survived.

Gatlinburg is really pretty this time of year with lots of fall colors and fall decorations.

Thursday night we ate at the Peddler Steakhouse in Gatlinburg. This place has a salad bar a mile long. Well maybe not a mile but it seems like it. Check it out if you are ever in the area.  www.peddlergatlinburg.com

The pink pumpkins are for breast cancer awarenes.

Every year on our way home we stop to do a little retail therapy in Sevierville at the Tanger Outlet Mall. I found a cute denim jacket at Dress Barn. I usually can’t find anything I like at Dress Barn but the stitching on the side of the jacket was really different than anything like I have. Did I need another denim jacket? Probably not but I just couldn’t resist this detail.

And as usual the sisters wore me out.

Another fun trip. I think next year we will stay longer so we can return to Baskins Creek.

I am so ready to be home for awhile.  I have been gone three weeks out of the last four weeks.  With a work trip and then vacation soon after that, it all happened at the same time.  But that is the wonderful thing about life it happens and you have to go with it.

Love your day your way!!!
