My family has visited the Smoky Mountains region around and near Gatlinburg, Tennessee, many times over the years. Each time we visit, we run out of time before we run out of fun. There is ALWAYS something new to discover there…along with many family favorites that we try to visit each time we are in town.
I stumbled upon The Candle Lab while waiting for our table to be ready at The Eagle OTR. Once you have tried the fried chicken at The Eagle, you understand that the food is worth the wait. We had some time to kill and The Candle Lab offered the perfect adventure to fill our time.
I have tried the Olympics sport of curling several times during a “Learn to Curl” class.
Each time I LOVED it! Why you ask? [Read more…]
With 1400+ holiday events over the course of 40 days, Grapevine, Texas is known as the “Christmas Capital of Texas” and they take that title seriously. You may think that holiday events are only revolving around kids, but you will find that many of these adventures are great for a date night or evening out with friends too.

I love when fitness is so fun that you almost forget you are working out. A SkyRobics trampoline class does just that because it combines fitness and fun perfectly. What’s amazing is that you can burn up 1,000 calories an hour during this class!!!!
Has trapeze been on your list for a while?
I’ve tried the trapeze on 3 different occasions with the Cincinnati Circus Company and I want to give you the opportunity to join me.
The trapeze rig is set up at Burnet Woods in Cincinnati during the warmer months and it’s such a fun way to get out of your comfort zone.
I recently brought my friend Stephanie from “A Little Moore” to try trapeze for the 1st time. It’s been on her list for a while and she loved it so much that she wants to go again.
Here are a few reasons why I keep on coming back
1. It’s fun
2. I get a taste of circus life for a few hours
3. It’s challenging. As you progress, you can learn more tricks.
4. It’s an opportunity to be brave
5. Fear is conquered when you leave the platform. (The ladder climb is seriously the scariest part.)
6. It’s safe. You are harnessed in and the staff is excellent at not only making sure you have a safe experience, but also a positive one.
7. It’s something you can tell your grandkids about.
That got me thinking…..
I bet there are more of you out there that would love to try the trapeze …..if given the opportunity.
The first time that I tried trapeze I invited a group of ladies to join me. Some of them I didn’t even know that well.
What’s fun about sharing experiences outside of your comfort zone is that it instantly creates a bond with those who shared it with you.
Step out of Your Comfort Zone, Make New Friends and Build Community and Create a Memory

I love when I get opportunities to be creative. It can be hard to schedule time to create and my recent adventure of jewelry stamping at The Silver Diva was so much fun!
My husband and I switched up our birthiversary (his birthday/ our anniversary…yep- we got married on his birthday) by trying something new.
I’m going to start with a confession. I don’t enjoy cooking unless it’s social or has a theme to inspire. Unfortunately, thinking of what to cook everyday is not festive enough for me to get inspired……but a cooking class that is social and is an excuse to try something new ……..is the perfect way to consider maybe wanting to cook a few more meals in the future. This is where Chef Dan comes in.
