As you might recall, last month I had a trip to Tennessee that I was looking forward to because we would be in close proximity to Dollywood, Dolly Parton’s own amusement park.

We touched down in Tennessee and as luck would have it, it was raining cats and dogs. It was also quite late in the day. The rest of my party wasn’t too excited to traverse an amusement park in the rain, but I was determined to go so they graciously went with me. We got there around 5PM and went into the park, rain and all! Unfortunately, much of the park was closed due to the weather. We did manage to see a production of Babes in Toyland, which was a cute show for kids.

I failed

I failed already 🙁 I meant to post something yesterday, but I was working all day and then we got a call from the Health Department saying they were coming for an inspection tomorrow, so we had to go into emergency cleaning mode! By the time I got home, I had completely forgotten about this little blog u_u Maybe I can make up for it by posting TWO today!

On another note, Mike and I will be traveling to Knoxville, TN in December to attend his cousin’s wedding. I’m really excited because I’ve never been to Tennessee, or many states for that matter! We are staying in Sevierville, which is about half an hour’s drive from Knoxville, and 20 minutes from Pigeon Forge, home of… Dollywood!!

What is Dollywood, you ask? It is a theme park near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park founded by none other than Ms Dolly Parton herself, who of course is an American treasure. I love how over the top and campy she is! I want to go so bad!! I hope we can find time for a short trip, because when will I ever have another chance?! I’d love to stop by the National Park, too, but I think that might be too much to ask. I love visiting our National Parks as well, but that’s another post.
