We went a couple of years ago but Noah got a stomach virus the second day so we did not get to do a whole lot. Have any of ya'll been to Pigeon Forge any suggestions on shows, restaurants, or shopping?
Noah put out this little guy to remind everyone about our trip he is so excited!

Love

Carrie

Oh I'm jealous! Have fun! Go to Cades Cove in Townsend....it's my favorite place in the whole world.

Cant help you with gift ideas. My husband & I dont exchange gifts. We do like chocolate tho...we would share a box for sure!! LOL!
Be careful.

Pigeon Forge is a lot of fun and you will find tons of things to do and see! You really need to go to Apple Farms and Restaurant...they have the BEST apple fritters! Be sure to do some hiking in the Smokies...the scenery is phenomenal!

Yes, I have a very hard time shopping for Chris. Since he's been traveling all week, I'm just going to make him a nice pot roast and heart shaped Red Velvet cupcakes. I plan to treat him like royalty!

I just know yall will have a blast!!! I love the mountians!

I don't get Justin anything for Valentine's Day, other than an occasional card so I can't help in that area! Good luck!

Nina Diane said...

Sounds like fun to get away! Have a wonderful Valentines. I don't have any great suggestions. I got Jeff a tie another blogger made in her etsy shop. I think it's cute. And some chocolate.

Last time I went to Gatlinburg, Logan and I both got so sick while we were there. Have not been back since. :(

Daphine said...

I've never been. Sounds like fun though!

YES, I have the hardest time buying something for my sweetie too! I still don't know what I am going to get him......

I have been once to Gatlinburg. We went to Dixie Stampede. I thought it was pretty cool and different. We didn't do much else, though. I can't help you out a whole lot. And yes, I hate buying gifts for guys. They are so difficult and they think they are so easy. It kills me!

Lindsey said...

So fun! Have a great time!!

Christina said...

I would love to head for the mountains, but we just can't find the time right now. Crazy life.

Yes, I have a hard time finding a Valentines gift too. I may do something as simple as to bake his favorite cake or something for this year.

About the breakfast comment you made on my blog---isn't it funny how little things mean so much to kids. My son actually thinks I'm a gourmet cook when I make crockpot oatmeal with apples and cinnamon. It really isn't even that good--at least the texture isn't, but he loves it and raves about it.

Happy shopping! Mine is going away for 6 months next week (Air Force) so he wants an ipod. Easy enough to shop for this val day!
Next will be a challenge again though! Feel your trouble girly!
Have FUN on your trip! My Aunt from SC went a few years ago with her grandkids and kiddos and they all LOVED it! Can't wait to read all about it~ Hugs, Les

I hope you have fun in Pigeon Forge. I have never been there.

Bryan went out and bought his own Valentine's gift. I got informed later. So, I guess I don't have to worry about it. I hope you find something for Johnny!

We go a couple of times a year. I'm itching to go soon! We have several favorite places we like to eat. Mostly they are in PF. There's a great little pizza place, they have more food but the pizza is out of this world. It's called Smoky Mountain Brewery, they have a website. Our favorite breakfast place is Flapjacks, there are several of those b/w Gatlinburg and PF.

Darlene said...

I've never been there but have fun on your trip!!!

Thanks so much for your kind, encouraging words during this difficult time.

We've been to Pigeon Forge several time, but it's been a long time and I can't seem to remember anything! I let you know if something comes to mind. :) happy v-day!

ahhh...i learned not to buy my husband a gift. he's not a big fan of valentine's day, and anything i get him representing "love" is a waste of money. so i use my creative juices and just make it a fun date night!

Robyn Beele said...

Oh this stubborn Andrew. Will he ever come!? I have no idea what to get Nick. He may be getting a baby instead of a gift this year! I guess that should be good enough. Don't you?

Carrie said...

Sorry Carrie have ever been to Pigeon Forge. But both my parents and my brother's family have and they all loved it!!

I am sure you all will have a GREAT time!! And into all of that R and R!!

And as far the gift idea...sorry to say, but I am not help again!! I am clueless myself!!

Carrie♥

Carrie said...

Sorry meant enjoy all of that R and R...have NO idea how I typed into, long day at work I guess!!

Jill said...

Oh how much fun...I love going away on trips. I am such the tourist, when I get the chance. Never been there, isn't that where Dollywood is? I would love to go there!

Have fun!

We went to PF a couple of years ago. We might try to go back this Spring. We enjoyed Dixie Stampede. It's expensive, but fun to do at least once. The aquarium in Gaitlinburg is nice too. Hope you have fun! I'll try not to be jealous :o)
