This past Saturday I went to a craft fair at the local fairgrounds...there were some cute booths...this one was all handpainted signs...
And this one had the cutest little (FSU) baby beanie...
But this booth by Crafty Expressions (see their blog here!) was my favorite. They make all sorts of cute stuff...beaded rings, note holders, picture frames, crocheted hairbows, and crocheted plush! I think it's so cool when someone has a business making crafty goods....

The next day Adam fished for our trout at a local trout farm and they cleaned and cooked it for us. It was really good!
I curled my hair!!! (HA!)
Adam ran into my Aunt Janet & family in Smoky Mountain Knife Works...we didn't know they were coming. They were with my Uncle Mal's family and were going to meet up later with my Paw-Paw's family who I had never met...so we arranged to go to the Dixie Stampede with them, and I got to meet them (see below)! Meeting some of Paw-Paw's family was something I've always wanted to do!
We ate at our favorite place there, the Peddler.
When we got there, the leaves were so pretty and fallish, but by the middle of the week, they were all gone and it was very, very cold and wintery.
Me with my family I got to meet for the first time! This was so, so fun and unexpected!
The next day was an early lunch and some Cade's Cove exploring. It was so cold we only hiked once for a couple of miles to a waterfall.
The last day we went to the Apple Orchard and bought a bunch of apples, ate at the adjoining restaurant, and bought some fudge and candy for our families.
Then, we bought passes to play lasertag, mini golf, and go karts. (I ran into a wall and scared Adam to death on my go-kart, but thankfully, I didn't wreck the go kart or injure myself seriously!)
After that, we looked at boots (I wanted some, but they were waaaaay expensive!!!) and shared an oreo sundae (yum!)
