While Kory was burning up the road back & forth between Knoxville, Virginia, & Georgia over the holidays (he topped 1,800 miles on the Jeep Cherokee in 7 days), Kaitlin & I played at Gigi’s house in Knoxville! It was a great with 2 extra set of hands & really felt like my own 2009 vacation. We went shopping & bought Kaitlin’s first pair of shoes!!!
Kaitlin also made her 2nd visit to Long’s Drug Store with Gigi & G’Daddy for lunch to visit her favorite waitress, Ruby! Kaitlin was staring at everyone during lunch & Ruby decided that she was NOSEY & wanted to catch up on all the gossip … funny, that’s what Kory says about me!
Also, Kory & I were fortunate enough to spend our first night out together ALONE since March 25th. We traveled to Atlanta on New Year’s Eve for the Chick-fil-A Bowl to watch the Vols play! Kaitlin was a little sad she didn’t get to go but we had to remind her of the rules, “You can’t go to the game until you carry a 32 oz coke up 39 rows to your seat by yourself.”
The ATL was BEAUTIFUL when we arrived (NOT). Thankfully, the skies cleared by next morning. We had a nice view from the 35th floor of the Westin at the Peachtree Center when the fog lifted.
Our friends proved that you can start good road trip stories with “Remember that time at Taco Mac” and thankfully, we didn’t receive a “yellow card” like others at the GA Dome. We had a great time with friends but thanks to an inept 2nd half, the game was lousy. The Vols tried to ruin our New Years Eve …
But having a night out to ourselves for the first time in 9 months was priceless! Thanks again to Gigi & G’Daddy for taking care of Kaitlin!
