Mercier Orchards

This past weekend we had some cabin time with friends...

I was bound and determined we were going to pick apples somewhere...luckily we found a great place 11 miles from the cabin. Mercier Orchards!

Click Here to Jump to Mercier Orchards
In a nutshell...I loved it so much I wish I could work there! They have over 200 acres...with U-Pick Apples, soon Pumpkins, and next spring U-Pick Strawberries and Cherries! Free tractor rides to the apples...$6 for 1/2 peck, $12 for a peck. The store is huge...the bakery is too and has about 20 flavors of fresh daily homemade fried pies...strawberry cream, blueberry cream, coconut, apple, peach, cream cheese (day old baked goods are sold 1/2 price)...they also have homemade apple cider donuts...several flavors of homemade icecream...the apple fritters are to die for...a cute grab your honey or BF or mama and jump on 575 and head to Blue Ridge!

Oh and I guess I'll plug the company we rented from too:

Our original trip was planned for this past February...the weekend it snowed in GA...and the roads iced over...people were sliding off the roads trying to get to the cabins on our we ended up staying at the Comfort Inn and driving home...Cuddle Up was kind enough to keep our money in Feb...but let us pick another time to come back.

My Life In Pictures Sept 2010

Last Thursday, we drove to AL. Friday, we rode with Mom to TN for a family reunion. Familiar with Hallmark? I spotted Maxine walking into Walmart...perhaps she was out of cards?

Meme bought CJ a pillow pet...he's been wanting one for his birthday...which isn't until December...she told him if he could wear jockeys instead of pullups all the way to TN he could have it...he did it and is now wearing jockeys pretty much full time!!! This is where I found a pair at mom's when we were packing up to come home...HA! Seriously!

Tuesday...I started making Halloween bows...a dear having a baby girl soon...and well I can't stop making bows.

Thank goodness I have friends with Avery, Saige, Sarah Beth, Chloe, Baby Sister all have bows coming your way.

Today I dropped CJ off on set...I mean at preschool...yes...they really are filming FOOTLOOSE here...and next door and across the street and a few houses down.

Then I went to Walmart, Hobby Lobby, JoAnn's and Michaels looking for 2 inch grosgrain...scant. I did find 1 roll of "Halloween Purple" 1.5 Hobby Lobby...who bought allllll of the purple ribbon? I have been trying to find some for weeeeeks now. And found a cute candy corn necklace at JoAnn for $1 that I cut apart to get 10 candy corns to glue on!!! Score!

Or if you don't like candy corn...

I go back to pick up son on set...I mean at preschool...and it is CRAZY!!!

Paramount Pictures bring their own catering people...they were cooking a ton of food...cause I saw it...they ask us not to take I only snuck a few. Is there a part in FOOTLOOSE where the girl is dancing in the rain in front of the church? I saw them filming it...with the fake rain...or setting up a shot...cause they were making it fake rain. Pretty cool. I'll try to get more pics next week.

PS...where do you get the best deals on ribbon? Hobby Lobby was 50% off today...which is pretty good. Do you ever buy it online? If so please tell me where!!!
