Tennessee Road Trip

I had so much fun this past weekend on my little road trip across Tennessee! I drove into Jackson Thursday night after work to spend the night at my parents.On Friday morning I got up and headed to Knoxville to see my good friend Diana and her new baby boy, Kiser. Diana and I were so close in pharmacy school but ever since she moved to Knoxville we don't get to see each other often. This was the first time we have visited in over 2 years! Needless to say, it was a great visit. Her 10 week old baby boy, Kiser, is the most adorable baby I have ever seen.

Friday night I drove to Pigeon Forge to meet up with Allie for the weekend. We found a wonderful little Italian restaurant to eat dinner at. Afterwards, we were both too tired to do much else so we decided to have a fun little PJ party back at the hotel and watch.........QVC!! Yeah, good times! After watching the Friday late night QVC special showing, we decided it was absolutely necessary for us to go get some Bare Escentuals makeup the next day. The QVC people told us we could not live without it!

Saturday morning we were up bright and early and ready to shop til we drop! We hit the outlet mall in Sevierville first. We found a couple of cute outfits for baby Max, stocked up on some fall scents from Bath and Body Works, and bought some really cute boots and jean jackets from Old Navy and Gap! Success!

After lunch at Shoney's, (yes, that's right- I said Shoney's! We are Mark Hopper's daughters after all:) we drove into Knoxville to hit the West Town Mall. First stop was, of course, Bare Escentuals. We purchased our must-have products that Leslie from Bare Minerals insisted we needed! We then found a cute little Mexican restaurant to eat dinner at before heading to the movies to watch Step Up 3D!

Sunday morning we went to the Titanic museum before I left. It was absolutely amazing! Apparently it is the largest collection of Titanic memorabilia anywhere! It was well worth the $25 dollar admission fee.

I then started on my road trip back to Memphis. I stopped in Nashville to meet up with one of my old Zeta sisters, Nicole. She has recently moved back to Tennessee and we are just starting to reconnect. We had the best time catching up over lunch! Our lunch date also helped to break up the long drive back. Allie let me borrow a book on tape (by Sophie Kinsella) to listen to while I drove. Books on tape are now my new obsession. I LOVED it! I was almost finished when I got back to Memphis, so I had to listen to the last little bit on my laptop before bed!

It turned out to be a fabulous weekend! I had so much fun catching up with old friends and hanging out with my sister!
