Camping in the Smokies

Today’s blog post is brought to you all the way from Cosby, Tennessee, where we are sleeping on an air mattress, in a tent, in the mountains. Everywhere you go you see warning signs that you are in bear country. I had to sign a waiver saying that I understood that we are tenting inContinue reading “Camping in the Smokies”

Not Your Average Tuesday

So yesterday we got out of the house. Claire had an appointment at the groomer, and my mom and I decided to go to the outlet mall while we wait for her to get done.

Summer Blooms

Looking out my window, I noticed the Lilies I planted a few years ago have bloomed. They are the brightest orange, and are standing waist high.

Our Triple D Adventures

About a year ago I got really into watching Diners Drive Ins and Dives on the Food Network. If you don’t know what this is, it’s a show by Guy Fieri, where he visits small local restaurants that are supposed to be a huge hit with the locals.
