This and That

We are two thirds thru the month of September already, only 2 days until the official start of FALL, aahhh my favorite time of year!! I finally started pulling out my Fall decorations, this is REALLY late for me, but it was my first chance to do it.
Last weekend we went away to my parents lake house at Norris Lake, in Tennessee, with good friends for a few days, we had a great time. About 17 years ago my parents bought this house, about 4 hours from their home in Cincinnati,there it is, the creamy one in the middle of the pic.

Oh and that's my husbands arm you see in the pic too. He's a sun worshiper, ha!
We, my brothers and sisters and all of our families have so enjoyed this house, lots of great memories made there.
Here are a few pics from the inside and outside of their home.

When our parents bought this it was actually one of the larger homes around the lake at 3500 sq ft. But now, I think our house could fit in the living room of the MONSTER homes that surround the lake, here are a few that are amazing.

We think they are all in the 10,000 to 15,000 sq foot range, omg,
I mean like what the heck do these people do for a living?? Doctor, Lawyer, Wall Street Mogul, own the chain of Foot Lockers, oh wait that is true, or at least his xwife does, she got it in the divorce settlement,Drug Lord?? These people don't live at the lake they dont rent them out, it is there second or possibly even third house. I mean they are HUGE and oh so pretty!

To see these houses in person, is so impressive, and it isnt like there are just a handful of them, so many people, soooo much money. And they just keep getting bigger and bigger, this is keeping up with the Jones to the tenth degree!!
If you get a chance to visit Tennessee, make a point of taking a boat ride on Norris Lake, it is a beautiful clear lake with beautiful homes on one side and a gorgeous wildlife preserve on the other, well worth the trip!
Tomorrow is the shower my mom is hosting for my future daughter in law. It should be a beautiful day, we cant wait!! Look for a new post soon, I hope, thanks for stopping by!
