We're back from Pigeon Forge!

Our vacation was a blast! Our suite was amazing. The food was delicious. And the attractions were fun. I think this was probably the best vacation we ever had! We did things I never would have thought of before.

The absolute best part was going to Dollywood. I rode a roller coaster for the first time. Actually, I rode 3! What a thrill! I was scared out of my mind (I literally almost peed my pants!) and having the time of my life at the same time. As you can tell by the picture, my husband wasn't having as much fun. He wouldn't even open his eyes! If we ever go back to Pigeon Forge, Dollywood will definitely be on our to-do list!

We spent a whole week in Pigeon Forge, so Dollywood wasn't the only thing we did. We also made it to Wonderworks, Ripleys, The Track and many other attractions. Here's a few pictures:

I'm going to Pigeon Forge tomorrow!

Tomorrow is the first day of our vacation. We're spending the week in Pigeon Forge and I couldn't be more excited! We've booked a gorgeous suite with a full kitchen, a fireplace, Jacuzzi and private balcony. I can't wait to get some alone time with John! Check out the pics I got from the virtual tour of our room!







Plus we've bought tickets to do things I never would've imagined myself doing. I'm actually going to go bungee jumping! And we're going to Dollywood to ride all those huge roller coasters. I've watched a couple on YouTube and that just scared me more, but I'm determined to be adventurous. After all, we probably won't get this chance again. I gotta make the most of it!

A night with Dierks Bentley!

A couple weeks ago, I got a great deal on some Dierks Bentley concert tickets. I saw him perform once before when he opened for Trick Pony in South Dakota so I knew it would be a great show. Believe me, I wasn't disappointed.

We arrived early and although we had the choice of standing next to the stage, we opted instead to sit in the front row. I'm glad we did because the stage crowd was a mob scene. Look how close we got!


I didn't realize how many of my favorite songs were sung by him (I never pay attention to the artist, just the music). I managed to get a couple on video, but my computer is too slow to upload them right now. I think the best part of the concert was when he stopped in the middle of a song, pointed to a girl in the crowd and asked her to take her shirt off. It was unbelievable!


If we ever get the opportunity to see him again, we're definitely going!
