Looking For Ideas.

Our Location today is Sevierville, Tennessee, USA.

In last night’s post I mentioned that even though we didn’t have any definite plans made that we’d find something to do. With the cooler weather and the heavy rains waking us in the middle of the night since we left the state of Florida our bodies have adjusted by making us sleep later. 
After having breakfast and completing our morning computer reading we were soon out the door. We headed in to Pigeon Forge with the intention of getting Ideas. With our new RV Lifestyle we got rid of a lot of STUFF before we sold our home. Sometimes though it is nice to see what is out there just so we can pass along Ideas.

Many of our readers have said we start our shopping too early and they don’t want to hear about it. Back in 2008 when the economy was in the toilet and there weren’t too many smiling faces around our neighborhood I made a decision. That for the next two years we would decorate the outside of our home and put smiles on every one’s faces. When you have carloads of people stopping to look and little children looking in awe you know you did good. We gave it all away after selling our home and now we just look at other people’s displays to enjoy the season. It’s just that we get asked for ideas about many different things but this one will always be special to us. 

We stopped at The Incredible Christmas Place to look at displays and different types of lighting that we didn’t have back a few years ago. We even got a lot of different Ideas for indoor decorations. Stores like that can’t survive selling for only one holiday so we also got to see things for Halloween and Easter as well. Kathy and I were the only ones that walked out of that store empty handed today and there was quite a crowd when we arrived. 

Our next stop down the Strip was The Great Christmas Store. From the outside this outlet seemed to have more outdoor decorations but when you entered it didn’t. They also had a mixture of decorations for the different holidays but they also carried a huge selection of pottery type chinaware and linens.  Between both stores we walked away with many new Ideas to use.   
These two were cooking up a storm.

Back at the trailer I grilled a couple of small steaks while Kathy baked a potato and made a salad for our lunch. It all tasted great and after helping do the dishes I packed away the Weber for tomorrow’s travels. 

We’re on the road tomorrow so Kathy was busy cooking up some meals we’ll be able to enjoy by simply heating them up. I did the laundry so we won’t have to worry about that as soon as we get home and I closed as much up as I could outside the trailer because we were supposed to get rain tonight and as I am writing this it just started. 

There’s not supposed to be any rain for our travels tomorrow but the forecast is calling for high winds and we all know what traveling in high winds is like. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
