Some time away...

Andrew and I had the chance to sneak away for a few days after Halloween.  He had a TDY in Tennessee so I went with him and then we went to Ashville, NC for a few days.  Grammy Susan and Grammy Lo were kind enough to fly in from Wisconsin to take care of the girls while we were gone.  We had a very nice, relaxing time.  It was so nice to go out to dinner and be able to have an uninterrupted "adult" conversation with my husband.  We ate out, took a nice long drive through the Smoky Mountains on Blue Ridge Parkway with hot cups of Starbucks, we moseyed through the town of Ashville, we even had the chance to go to the spa for a much needed massage.  It was so relaxing, and just what the doctor ordered!!

On our way out to dinner in Knoxville, TN

We spotted the Oscar Mayer Wiener-Mobile

This is in the lobby of our hotel in Ashville, it was absolutely gorgeous.
I would have been happy staying in our amazing hotel room for the whole time,
 but that just wouldn't have been right!

One of the beautiful views along our drive 

At one point during our drive through the Smoky Mountains we stopped and did a little hiking.

The mountains were beautiful with all of the leaves changing.

We had a wonderful dinner at our hotel one night.
The menus lit up when you opened them, Andrew got a kick out of it!!
After a delicious dinner we decided to go see a movie. 
 A luxury that doesn't happen very often!!
