Ellijay, GA

We recently took a trip to north Georgia. In planning the trip I found that one of the routes would take us thru Ellijay, GA. I’m not sure why or how, but I had heard about this city before. I never did figure out what I had heard about it. Oh well, we enjoyed our…

Blue Ridge, GA

To celebrate 10,228 days of marriage (if you don’t want to do the math that is 28 years) we decided to take a long weekend trip to Blue Ridge, GA. We traveled on our actual anniversary. We of course took the scenic routes all weekend. We started our trip by heading towards Atlanta and heading…

Go Where the Road Takes You!

I had heard about a new consignment store opening in Oneonta, AL. Friends had been posting on Facebook about the shirts they have in their booth. So we went opening weekend to check it out. We went on Sunday afternoon and shopped at the store. We found that most things in the small town are…

Authentic Mexican

We recently visited a new restaurant in Leeds, AL that is an authentic Mexican restaurant. It is called Taqueria La Juanita. We had looked at the menu online beforehand, but really didn’t know what to expect. Jeff had a quesadilla and I had tacos. I was halfway thru my meal when I realized that the…

Pensacola Beach

We chose to take a quick trip to Pensacola Beach for Jeff’s birthday. This was our first time to stay on the island. We chose to stay at the Holiday Inn Resort. They have heated indoor and outdoor pools with a lazy river. When we arrived they put us on the street side of the…

McFly’s Bird Shoppe

We ate lunch in an alley for the first time when we went to McFly’s Bird Shoppe. It is in Birmingham, Alabama in 5 Points South. It was on our list of places to try for awhile but we were not sure if we’d be able to find parking. It only took us one trip…

Hello Spring!!

Sunday was a gorgeous day in Alabama. We decided to take advantage of it and get outside. We put on our first shorts of the season since it was going to be about 80 degrees and went to the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. There wasn’t as many flowers blooming as I had hoped, but we still…

Mango’s Cantina & Grill

Another Mexican restaurant has recently opened in Leeds, AL. This one has opened in a place that several other restaurants have been in that haven’t stayed. I really hope that this one stays open as the food was good. We went on a Friday night and since we had worked late we had to wait…

No Bake Oatmeal Cookies

One of my favorite cookies is the oatmeal no bake cookies. I sometimes buy them in the deli section of the grocery store. I don’t buy them often because Jeff doesn’t like them and I eat them all myself. During the holidays I made them to take to Christmas with my family. They were of…

Buc-ee’s!!

The 2nd Buc-ee’s has opened in Alabama. This one is located in central Alabama right outside Birmingham in the city of Leeds. Have you visited yet?? We’ve seen a lot of posts on social media of visits that have been made. The store is 53,250 square feet. There are 120 gas pumps. They have large…
