Girls Weekend

Me and my girlfriends are very close. However, we don't get to spend time together all that often. We always try to do something for our birthdays though. This past weekend we celebrated our friend Tammi's birthday by going to Pigeon Forge for the weekend. We set out on Saturday morning and of course had to go to the new Bass Pro Shop. Now me not having a clue about anything in this store just went along for the ride. I used to fish with my father when I was a kid but quickly grew out of this when I found out I was a girl. Don't misunderstand, I know that there are some women who enjoy hunting and fishing, my friends are some of them. I'm not. I much prefer high heels and shopping anyday to fishing. However, this store was fun. It included a water fall, an aquarium, and animals such as moose, deer, among others. We had to try on hats, visit starbucks, and of course kiss the moose.

Next we visited the scrapbook superstore. My friends and I are huge scrapbookers. We love everything from the papers to the stickers. I am personally a paper and chipboard addict. Scrapbooking has become a huge part of my life. I take my digital camera everywhere with me. I not only document holidays and special occasions but also everyday life. I love it. After shopping like crazy we just had to have our photo taken with the bear family in front of the store.

We checked into our hotel and had to try out the beds. The only way of course to do this is by jumping on them. Don't laugh, you know you do it too. Our room was incredibly nice. Our bathroom on the other hand was not fat girl friendly. We had to shove the door to get it past the toilet. Fun. Not that we spent much time there. Just as soon as our fourth person, Beth, arrived we set out to do some more shopping.

The reason to come to Pigeon Forge is to shop. The place to shop is of course the Tanger Outlet Mall. Our first stop, of course, is the Old Navy Outlet. Who doesn't love Old Navy. After purchasing anything from scarves and $6 Mary-Jane Espedrilles to Pajamas and Underwear, we moved on to the Fossil store. We shopped to our hearts content with a reward of Starbucks Frappucino's so that we could compare our finds.

We finished the weekend with a stop at the Russel Stover outlet to stock up on chocolates, caramels, and boxes of assorted candies. It's the bitter sweet ending to a wonderful weekend.

I am so blessed to have these amazing ladies in my life. After a weekend of laughing, talking, and shopping, I know that we will be friends for life. It's hard to believe that we have been friends since highschool. I know we will remain friends because we have such a wonderful bond that can never be removed. I am refreshed after this weekend. Some times you just need a girls weekend to remember that friendships are a gift. Til next time.
