Ladies and Gentlemen, the wait is over. Finally here are some pictures of our mountain weekend at Lakeview at Fontana.
As we pulled up the first thing I screamed was, "Pumpkins!" What can I say, I love small details.
Matt at the front stoop of our sweet little cabin. Two bedrooms, one bath, living area and kitchen.
Our good friends Amber and Jon went with us. They are the best couple to travel with. Can't wait until our next adventure.
Wine and cheese everyday at 5pm. Here's a tip for you home cooks. They mix pesto and mustard together. It was surprisingly very tasty.
Woke up on Saturday and found this little leaf bug outside our door.
We spent the rest of the day in the Spa, having a long lunch, drinking mimosas, napping, wine and cheese hour and making dinner in our kitchen. Bolognese with salad and bread.
Jon's Spa Head. We all looked like this.
We played cards until 1am and had a dance party in our cabin.
Matt has a heavy hand while pouring. Amber didn't mind.
Overall it was a fantastic weekend with great friends. I would recommend this place to anyone. It's perfect for couples and girlfriends weekends. There is not much to do which is exactly what we all need sometimes.

Thanks to Laura at Hominy Girl we found the perfect Anniversary destination. We went to the Lakeview at Fontana 2 weekends ago. It's super affordable and had a Spa, Yoga, breakfast and afternoon cheese and wine. It was PERFECTION!! Pictures still too come. Sorry my work schedule has been crazy.
We'll be heading to Starkville, Mississippi on November 12th for the Mississippi State vs. Alabama game. Can't wait to see Matt's family who will be meeting us there.
Scarves, Cardigans, Jeans and Boots.. OH MY!

I didn't use too many materials. I bought a large piece of foam tubing at Lowes that I cut and duct taped into a ring ($1.50). Then I headed over to Michaels for the yarn ($1.99) and the felt ($1.20). Just basically a lot of hot glue and about 2 hours of crafting.
Here is a tutorial on how to make the felt flowers if you want to make your own.

10 years ago I was 17 years old and a Senior in high school. I was sitting in my entrepreneurship class when my vice principal made the announcement about the attacks. I was scared and a friend next to me started to cry. Her uncle worked in the Pentagon. That afternoon the Senior class sat in the library watching the footage. This was before each classroom had a tv or computer with internet.
My basketball game was cancelled that evening and my whole family stayed at home that night and watched the coverage. In the coming weeks I remember donating blood and money to the cause. I didn't know how else to help. I remember a couple of my friends were signing up for the Marines. I was so proud of their sacrifice.
So on this day hold your family, friends and neighbors close. Be selfless and do a kind act for a stranger. Even if we can't agree on all topics, remember that we share this great country and our freedom is constantly being earned.
God Bless America, land that I love.
Where were you on that day?
