Weekend Getaway in Chattanooga


Last weekend my boyfriend and I headed down to Chattanooga, TN to get away and explore a new(ish) city. We arrived hotel the Chattanoogan around 5 Friday afternoon. We absolutely adored the hotel and everything about it, minus their parking structure. We ate a place called Table 2 that night and I enjoyed the most delish steak (and probably the most expensive 6 oz), ever. Oh my word was it good. 5oh ate some kind of a duck breast and absolutely loved it. But I can not recommend it to anyone, because I thought I was going to d.i.e. while trying to get it down.
We pretty much were like the show Man VS. Food, except Man & Woman vs. Food. ha! We conquered that city and all of it's goodness.

On Saturday morning we ate at City Cafe Diner (I think that was the name, but you don't need to remember it anyhow) and it was awful. Worst omelets on the earth. I swear this post isn't a food review, but we just like food a lot?!?!

We walked around downtown Chattanooga after breakfast and stuffed ourselves full at Sticky Fingers. This is probably the best bbq place in America. I absolutely love stuffed potatoes with bbq in them, and I was so excited to see that they had them on the menu.It started raining extremely hard during the early afternoon so we decided that nothing would be better than taking a lazy day nap. We napped forever and then headed to Big River which was excellent as well.

Due to the rain on Saturday during the day and that night it was completely useless to try to do anything so we watched tv and got some awesome sleep.

Sunday morning after checking out of the our hotel it thankfully stopped raining and we were able to go to Lookout Mountain and Rock City. Even though it was completely freezing, I'm SO glad that we were able to accomplish this because we had a lot of fun walking around Rock City.

Before leaving Chattanooga we made sure to eat at one more new place. So we picked BlueWater Grill that is owned by the same people as Big River. I am not a fan of seafood, what-so-ever but went out on a limb and tried stuffed pasta shells w/ crabmeat, scallops, shrimp. To my surprise, it was delish!I am very certain that I gained ten pounds on this getaway.

This trip was more than necessary for us as a couple. I could write another book full of reasons why I love this guy and how he just fits so perfectly into my life, in so many different ways. I am extremely blessed to have him for CB and I to love. I am still as ecstatic as I was on day one of meeting him. Ah. =) I just love it.Lovers Leap

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
