My Southern Fried Vacation & A Little Souvenir Giveaway

October has come and gone … been home from vacation for two weeks … laundry is done … suitcases are waiting to be taken to the attic.  I intended to post this giveaway along with a few vacation photos the day after my return … obviously didn’t happen ;)  Why does it take me so long to back into the swing of things?  It took me two days to do the laundry and two or three days to do all of the grocery shopping.  There were just a few things left in the fridge, including sour milk … two of my sons actually smelled it and put it back in the fridge … never understand that one!

We had a great time visiting family (didn’t take a single photo, oops!) and site seeing … been to the south many times and still find new things to see and do!  This is my Southern Fried Vacation in a nutshell … ate a lot of fried chicken at Loveless Cafe, Cracker Barrel, KFC, Paula Deen’s Lady & Sons and the best chicken fried chicken at Puckett’s Grocery.  Had fried apples at Cracker Barrel … fried apple pies at The Apple Barn (they have a permanent Christmas store!) and Muddy Pond Sorghum Mill, where we watched the whole sorghum making process … think the hubby wants to grow sorghum now!

southern fall vacation

We spent a few days with Bessie and her friends … saw some adorable scarecrows in Gatlinburg … stealing that idea for my yard next year!  I love lighthouses … stumbled across one on Tybee Island.

My hubby, the Peanut Butter Man, had his agenda too …

Hubby's favorite things

Visiting the Louisville Slugger factory may have been the highlight of his year … you have no idea how many photos we have of that huge bat!  The real biggie was … he held Johnny Bench’s bat … been a fan forever and of course we have photos!  I remember driving from California to Tennessee in 1973 … saw a billion Stuckey’s Pecan Shoppes along the highway … they disappeared … found one … hubby stocked up with one of his all-time favorites … Stuckey’s pecan logs!  Visited the Corvette Museum and saw many fancy cars, including the ones that were recovered from the sinkhole!

Fall Vacation

 

We visited Boone Hall Plantation in Charleston … currently a working farm.  The leaves were changing colors … beautiful countryside!   We did a lot of driving, especially at night … put about 3,000 miles on the rental car … thank goodness for unlimited miles.  I’m still try to convince the hubby that I worked on this vacation … remember the Acorns!

I’m home now and ready to really get back to work … Thanksgiving and Christmas are around the corner!

Finally … the little giveaway …

I picked up a few souvenirs for one lucky person!

My Vacation Giveaway

 

These items were chosen because they made me smile, fit in my suitcase and I thought … who doesn’t need a few more kitchen items?  ;)  The first dish towel came from The Loveless Cafe … where they serve great biscuits!  The second dish towel is from Paula Deen’s store … the saying made me smile :)  I found the wooden spoon at The Apple Barn … made by local craftsmen … never can have too many spoons!
