Pizitz Festival of Trees

We had heard that the Pizitz Food Hall was hosting a festival of trees for the holiday season. We went there for lunch after church one Sunday in December. After lunch we went looking for the trees. What we found were decorated wooden trees on the sidewalk outside. They were all decorated differently. Some of…

Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland

Since we are chasing the spirit of Christmas this year, we decided that we would check out the Christmas lights at the Birmingham Race Course. Since we didn’t know what to expect, we searched online to try to determine how long it takes to go thru the displays, but we couldn’t find any suggestions. When…

Christmas at Eddie’s Florist

Since we were in Tennessee for a long weekend we decided to check to see if Eddie’s Florist in Henegar had their Christmas trees up yet, and they did. So we decided on the way home that we would make our 2nd trip to see their beautiful trees. We found them a few years ago…

Fall in the East Tennessee Mountains

Since the leaves were starting to change and we were going to be in Maryville for the weekend, we decided to take Monday off work and make it a long weekend. We drove up Saturday morning and we went to Avery’s game and to the Capitol Theatre Ice Cream Parlor and to the mall at…

Capitol Theatre Coffee & Ice Cream Parlor

In October we went to one of Avery’s football games in Maryville. We knew that on this trip we wanted to visit the Capitol Theatre for ice cream. We’ve made several trips but this would be our first time to visit here and get ice cream. The ice cream parlor is inside the beautiful Capitol…

There is always room for ice cream!!!

We are always keeping an eye out for new places to try. I found out about a place in downtown Springville called Laster Sundries on Main. So one rainy day we decided to ride to Springville to give it a try. It looks like an old fashioned soda fountain. According to their Facebook page the…

SOHO Social

We had heard of SOHO Social and decided to give it a try one day for lunch. Really wish that they had a lunch menu with lunch prices, but they just have one menu so it made for a bit of a pricey lunch. We had been wanting to try the pimento mac and cheese…

College Football Hall of Fame

Before the football season we decided to take a last minute overnight trip to Atlanta to visit the College Football Hall of Fame. We had been talking about it for awhile, and decided that we needed to just go and stop just talking about going. So we decided that we wanted to do an overnight…

Hero’s Part Two

I recently had the pleasure of getting lunch with Julie during the week. We don’t usually go to lunch together during the work week. We had narrowed our choices down to a couple of places we have yet to try or Hero Doughnuts & Buns in Homewood. We had eaten at Hero’s once previously, and…
