I was thinking about what I could blog about today and decided to get back into the 30 Day Blog Challenge I started forever ago... My last post was back in January!! How awful is that?!
I remember back then trying to decide what place I'd use for my post. I think the ones that came to mind were the Bahamas or Disney World. I haven't done any travelling abroad (yet), so I'm kind of limited... But I think I'm going with a Girl's Trip we took in May 2010.
My lady friends and I took a long weekend trip to Banning Mills in Whitesburg, GA. The purpose of this trip... to go on the Zip Line Canopy Tour! : ) (click here to go to their website for more info)
I'm not necessarily afraid of heights, but they're certainly not my favorite. So I was a little nervous about this trip... but mostly excited. The girls and I always have fun no matter what we're doing! ; )
We all pitched in and rented a lovely little cabin on site. It had 5 beds I think, 2 or 3 bathrooms, a small living room and a nice little kitchen... which even had a big wooden column in the center, perfect for dancing on! (Haa, ha, ha... I'll be nice and not post any videos, Jennifers)
So the night before the Zip Line appointment, we drove over to the nearest town (30 minutes away) to have some dinner and do a little dancing. This is where we ate:
You may recognize that picture... I edited it to make my Weigh-In Wednesday header. : ) Then after we ate, we got directions to some place where we could dance. And since I'm not a big drinker, I volunteered to drive. Wow... that was almost as much of an adventure as the zip line! We got lost several times... did several circles... then finally made our way to some hole-in-the-wall bar. So we danced for an hour or two, then decided to just go back to the cabin. We needed to get up pretty early, after all.
