The Smoky Mountains Part 2

Not gonna lie to you, this post is photo heavy!!!
In an attempt not to bore you with my vacation recap I am doing my best to narrow down the photos and the stories.
However, a couple of them deserve their own post :)
Read part 1 of the smokies here

Mic was feeling a little under the weather, so he stayed home to play GTA5 get some rest, while I headed out to the outlet stores.
Honestly, I don't like to shop but it was really nice to just get out and walk around for awhile.
I did find a few Christmas gifts for Mic and X while I was there, so it worked out wonderfully :)

Totally normal to have people floating over top of your car!
This is the sky lift in Gatlinburg that takes riders up and and down the mountain.

Inside the restaurant at Ober Gatlinburg.

When in Rome Germany one must eat a huge pretzel with their beer!

The Bavarian Plate - bratwurst, kielbasa, potato salad, and sauerkraut

Stuffed Cabbage with potato salad and sauerkraut

The accordion player from the band that was "serenading" us ;)

This is one of the two trams that you ride up the mountain to get to the ski resort, ice skating rink, restaurant, etc.

Foggy/cloudy/smoky morning over the mountains.

Loved this little pancake house!
There was a beautiful alley next to it called The Village.
It had lots of little shops to visit.
Reminded Mic and I a little of the alley that Harry Potter visits to pick out his wand :)

Strawberry crepes with homemade whipped cream for Mic.

And a strawberry covered waffle with homemade whipped cream for me :) YUMMY!!!

Rockin' my Ohio Tee while out and about in Gatlinburg :)
This is just one of the few sweets we picked up during the week...
Rice Krispie square covered in milk chocolate with rainbow sprinkles, ON.A.STICK!

We had the most delicious fried chicken at Applewood Farmhouse Grill!

We made a quick stop in the Christmas store at the Applewood Farmhouse and found ourselves in Smore ornament heaven :)

Panoramic from the top deck of our cabin.

Nashville and Extras posts to come soon :)
