Smoky Mountain fun!

So one of my best friends, Sherri, recently bought a FABULOUS cabin in Pigeon Forge, TN, smack dab in the midst of the Smoky Mountains.
It sleeps 20!
She invited a few of our girlfriends to hang out for a few days so Caroline and I hit the road!

Here's the cabin...
It is four stories tall so you can't really see how big it is from the pic above. This is one like it so this is what it looks like on the back:
Here are some inside shots:

It has six bedrooms, 6.5 baths. This was ours....
We loved it!
I made several trips to the Scrapbook Superstore and Clearance Center - I'll be sharing what I got later this week. I went on a stamp binge. :)
So while we were are some things we did....
Ate lots of great food - this was the Log Cabin Pancake House lunch buffet:
Went to four candy stores!
Made a few handmade Christmas ornaments for the cabin:
Went swimming in the indoor pool (at right):

 Played lots of games:
Went to The Incredible Christmas Place and other fun shops:
Saw more pumpkins and fall decor than we've ever seen in our life!
Went to The Village in Gatlinburg:
Found lots of great spots to take photos:
Went to the doll store where they make handmade clothes for American Girl dolls:
Swung on the porch and looked at this incredible view:
And just hung out and talked with friends (the best part)....
Michelle and Sylvie (who kept us laughing):
Doris Sander (you may have heard of her, she's quite scrappy):

and sweet Sherri and her boys and nephews:
Thank you Sherri for inviting us! We hope you'll invite us again!
And in case you're wondering, I realize there is not one picture of me. That is not on purpose! I am so bad about never being in the picture.
If you're ever interested in taking a group to the Smokies, you can find out how to rent this incredible cabin at It's amazing! I highly recommend it!
See you later gators!

Oh my gosh...what an awesome place! We took the family to the mountains for a summer vacation once many years ago, and it was a favorite. Drooling over the spaciousness and INDOOR swimming pool!
