Another week down in Knoxville, Tennessee!
We went to a local coffee shop, The Blue Mason CoffeeHouse, it's a cute place, they offer a lavender latte, it was almost too sweet, but it was light and airy. They have nice big windows but it is tiny.
We went to The Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop, it's this cute little bakery off of Kingston Pike, we bought four mini pies and they were key-lime pie, I-40 (pecan pie with chocolate chips and coconut), Apple, and Buttermilk. I had the key-lime pie last night and oh. my. gosh. It was sweet but tart and the crust was so good. I'm gonna have the apple tonight.
But those are the only new places we've been to this week. Kevin's been getting ready for his new job and I've been working on some of my stamps and changing some stuff on my website.
I now I have a twitter dedicated to printmaking!
Tomorrow we're going to the Great Smoky Mountains! We're going on a trail near Cades Cove, hopefully no bear encounters and then we're going to go to The Plaid Apron for lunch. I'm really excited about going to the national park! Kevin and I are getting more into hiking, I definitely want to take him camping while we're so close to a national park!
I've been figuring out patterns with my stamps, the flamingo and teapot are on my etsy.
Figuring out patterns is hard! Especially the teapots since there are so many ways to do it. And then when you add color to it and it's a whole other ballgame. I need to buy more material to make more stamps. I'm really enjoying making them. I like making cute little animals or objects. The stamps are easy to store away, they don't take up a lot of space and I don't need a press for them! (I miss my press!)
One of the bonuses of living in our apartment complex is they have a surprisingly nice gym!
So i've been working out everyday. Eating healthy-ish. I finally found a smoothie I like! I have that after my workouts.
I feel good, don't get me wrong, I have a love/hate thing with exercise, I sometimes prefer sitting around like my cats, but I do feel good about what I accomplished after a hard workout.
Food is my weakness though, I wish I had this strong will power to eat only veggies but I love salt, butter and sugar.
Food honestly brings me so much joy haha. In moderation of course.
Thanks for Reading!
