Memorial Weekend 2009

Here’s how my saturday went…. (sorry no pictures)

We started out by heading to eat at our local Burger King. Yummy and not too busy today!

Then, we ventured back down past our house to a furniture sale that I spotted the night before. They were sold out of the mattress set that we had hoped to get, so we ended up with a newer set of our current size. Ohwell, so much for upgrades!

Back to the house to unload the new mattresses, pack up for our night at the drive-in, and move some new-to-me books from the back of my suburban.

After getting all packed up and ready to head up towards Maryville way, we stopped at a local produce stand. Nope, we didn’t buy anything because their prices were jacked up! I thought that Food City wanted a lot for their watermelons…I won’t be so picky next time!

Now, we don’t go over Maryville way that often. We usually drive down the Wears Valley route or all the way down Chapman Highway to get there. Today, we decided to try our luck at not getting lost and taking the shorter route and turn at the ‘y’ (as we locals know it). We made it through the first try! Yeah, I know…it was a straight shot…who cares!

Stopped off at their Food Lion and signed up for one of their store cards. Now, I’m an official Food Lion card holder! Woo Hoo!!! Picked up some grub, including a watermelon for $3.99. Some sandwich meat that we didn’t even eat any of. Got directions to the local Little Ceasars Pizza.

Headed out of the parking lot to get lost, but didn’t since I know that part of the town. $22 bucks and four pizzas later, we are officially headed towards the drive-in where they have a flea market before the movie.

Flea market sucked…off to find another adventure. (boring writing so far). We ended up turning right onto the Foothills Parkway. (I’ll post seperately for that one).

Anyways…we spent eight hours at the drive-in. Price $24 admission for all four of us. $4.50 for a large bucket of popcorn that we are still eating today. Three movies later (Night at the Museum 2, Fast and the Furious 4, Wolverine) and it’s now past three AM. AND..I still have to drive all the way back home…in the sprinkling rain.

Needless to say, I slept in today!
