Opry Hotel/ICE Bits & Pieces

The magic of Christmas comes to live each year at the Opryland Hotel from November to December. You will adventure into a wonderland filled full of sparkling lights, array of colors, chilly carriage rides, & so much more!

If seeing all the above is not enough then you may also want to emerse yourself into ICE which this year happens to be Frosty the Snowman! It changes every single year which allows you to enjoy it each & every time. I must forewarn you however that you better dress warmly if you do not want to freeze into a solid block if ice yourself. Oh & it happens to have over 2 million tons of ice which has been sculpted.

I love that over the years I have made it a tradition of going to ICE as well as to the Opryland Hotel. I never seem to get enough of either! I love that it all reminds of my childhood growing up! I normally take tons upon tons of photos each year but this year instead of worrying about all the photos being taken I decided to truly just enjoy the moment at hand! However I am going to share with you sweet ladies the few photos I did take while there :)

Things I'm Lovin

I am loving that I had such a fun time catching up with Dusten on Friday night when we went to Opry Hotel to see the lights as well as see Ice which happened to be Frosty The Snowman! Tomorrow I will post a few photos I took of the lights :)

I am loving that on Saturday I enjoyed some time with the family! That alone is always fun & enjoyable..

I am loving that on Sunday Aunt Joyce & I went to see Catching Fire! It was so good & we loved it so very much.

I am loving that today I am going to ride horses & that Elle Bella will be coming along! I know she loves it just as much as me..

I am loving that come tomorrow I will be having Thanksgiving dinner with my family but sadly I will not get to participate in Black Friday with them because I will be back at work!

I am loving that anytime now baby Liam will be making his debut! Ugh he needs to come out of the womb already..

Gatlinburg Getaway

I know you have seen the parts of Cades Cove while on our little Gatlinburg getaway but we also had other places we visited as well. One of those being Dollywood of course! We have season passes so why not go & enjoy some fun?

One of the nights we went to Dollywood it was raining which was a bummer but we still rode the rides which was tons of fun! But I do have a piece of advice allow someone else to sit in the front so that you are shielded from the rain because, once it hits your face on the rides it stings! 

The next time we went it was chilly but at least the rain had cleared thankfully! 

Here are some photos from Dollywood & in general while in Gatlinburg.. Enjoy!

Cades Cove Photography

While in Cades Cove I had my sweet mother take a few photos of me! Trying to explain to her how to take them & such was a little hard but nothing I could not handle! Thank goodness I can edit & crop photos! She still has a lot to learn but I do not expect her to be perfect when taking them because if anyone knows practice makes perfect then that would be me! 
I hope you ladies enjoy them :) I cannot wait to place one or two of these into my Christmas card for my family & friends..
