Our Vacation Through Instagram

     My husband and I finally got a week off together! This has been our first vacation together since our honeymoon almost a year ago! We decided to visit the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, and here are some pictures from our trip. ☺

The bad decisions started This was our "snack" on the way up to Pigeon Forge.

This is our view driving into town. Notice the Titanic museum up ahead and the mountains in the back.

Here's another view of the mountains and the beautiful clouds.

This is my Kosmic Karma + Roasted Red Peppers Pizza from Mellow Mushroom. ☺

The result of our visit to The Smoky Mountain Popcorn Company ~ Half Chocolate Caramel & Half Cheddar and Sour Cream 

...and our second trip to the Popcorn Company. Left to Right: Snickers, Taco, and Buffalo

This is a view of Little Pigeon River that runs through Gatlinburg. We happened to come upon this bridge while we were walking through downtown Gatlinburg.

The Old Mill General Store attached to The Old Mill Restaurant. This restaurant is definitely not the cheapest in town, but you definitely leave full and with plenty of leftovers!!

Parking at The Old Mill

The view in front of The Old Mill Restaurant ~ Fun shops with mountains as a backdrop ♥

Joe's Crab Shack in the mountains? You got it.

Another picture of Joe's. We had beer-battered fish, crab cakes, and my husband ate crab-stuffed shrimp. 

The super-cute pirate ship playground for the kiddies at Joe's

The back of the new Hollywood Wax Museum in Pigeon Forge ~ The King Kong is huge!

The yummy fried green tomatoes with feta cheese and spicy ranch from The Partridge and Pear Restaurant!

The Starbucks my husband has nicknamed "Ye Old Starbucks" because of it's appearance. ☺ We go to the Ye Old Starbucks every time just so we can say its nickname. Haha!
