Early 24th anniversary

The bad thing about a December wedding anniversary is that celebration/plans/trips for said anniversary almost always get eclipsed by the busy holiday season.  I hate to say it, but we often found ourselves going out to dinner and Christmas shopping for our anniversary; not that it's a horrible way to spend it, but every now and then it's a good idea to get ahead of the craziness and make it a priority--do something different!
Sometime mid-September we planned for my sister to come down and take care of the boys for a nice October weekend, so we could get away to Chattanooga.  We love it there...great places to eat, a fun and funky waterfront park area, and it's not a bad drive either!  We stayed at a Bed and Breakfast high atop Lookout Mountain, GA.....what a great weekend for relaxing, eating good food, and spending time together.

My favorite chocolates were awaiting me....coconut gold bars and grey- and smoked sea salt caramels from Fran's

Incline Railway--72.7% incline--woah
It was blustery that day, my friends.....

observation deck--7 states

After sight-seeing and a yummy lunch at our favorite burger joint, Urban Stack, we went back to the Inn where we watched football and I had a most luxurious 3 hour nap.  That evening we were on a mission to find a place to watch the Alabama/MS State game; it wasn't as easy as we thought it'd be....our choice: Buffalo Wild Wings or restaurants with ONLY two tv's....???  We were clearly not in Alabama anymore....

We hit up a funky fresh mex place, Taco Mamacitas, for tacos and the was great!  Our waitor let us hang out for awhile and made sure the guy at the bar turned it to ESPN in time.   Roll Tide!!
best soup EVER
mexican corn and tacos the way they should always be
Of course, the weekend ended too quickly!  There's so much to do there, we'll have to go back again soon...maybe make it an annual was much more fun than Christmas shopping!

Here's to 24 more years, babe!
