I cannot believe I am going out of town again this morning, but this is a very quick trip. I am taking my girls and my mom and heading down to Silver Dollar City
If you are not familiar with Silver Dollar City the best way to describe it would be a cross between 6 Flags, colonial Williamsburg and Vegas minus the hookers. It is about 4 hours south of STL in a town called Branson. The hubs thinks it is totally cheesy ( I completely agree) but my kids love it here. I don't like going in the summer it is hot, sweaty and crowded but I love going this time of year.
The place is totally decked out in lights
you can ride the Polar Express
there is a Christmas parade
and of course Santa is around
This trip always gets me in the holiday mood!!
I am rolling back in town Friday night just in time to go to dinner with my adorable next door neighbors. The cutest 80 year old couple ever. He wears a suit with an ascot everyday and she is always in pearls. I would love to be as classy as them when I get older. They are taking me and the hubs to their club which I think has one of the best views of the city skyline
Saturday I am having a little staycation with for a friends birthday. We are starting off the day with a food tour of the city. This event is hosted by a local food magazine. We go to 5 different restaurants within walking distance of each other for a small plate of their best dishes plus a cocktail
then we are hitting up the spa
at the hotel we are staying at for the night
with most likely some late night craziness!!
Have a beautiful weekend!!
