Travelling Blue Ridge, Georgia – Day 3: Farewell
If you missed Day 1 of our trip to Blue Ridge, Georgia, you can visit that post here. And, if you missed Day 2 of our trip, you can visit that post here. Travelling Blue Ridge, Georgia wouldn’t be complete without me showing you my going home travel outfit, so here are two more “aerial photos” by Big T, LOL. This is in the lobby of our hotel as we were leaving and he was in a hurry for me to “get out of the way”; again, I embarrass him in public, ha!
Do not miss my “After Dinner Story” near the end of this post.
Comfort comes first for travelling in the car. This is just a basic lime green t-shirt I have had for a while along with my Old Navy super skinny white jeans. I had to wear my new jazzy wedges that I bought on Day 1 of our trip, you can read about the shoes and that day here.
The lime green t-shirt and warm tone of the chocolate faux pearl necklace bring out the details and tones in the shoes. This is an older Avon necklace, but I found a similar option here on Amazon.
I also wore the sturdy flat, gold-filled wire wrapped bracelet that I bought on Day 2 of the trip at the Mountain Fling show. I love it, a perfect fit, it clips to form a firm bangle style. You can read the post about the arts and crafts show here.
We stayed at a very nice Comfort Inn that was only one mile up the mountain from Main Street in Blue Ridge. We could see the mountain tops from the hotel.
I am not a fan of those folks who ride down the road with their feet up on the dashboard, or a bare dawg hanging out the window, ha! But, I had to get one more set of pictures of my new shoes to amuse myself as travelling Blue Ridge, Georgia was quickly becoming a memory and we were about to enter the reality of Atlanta traffic.
I bought these shoes after dinner on Day 1 of our trip. The shop is named “Humble Pie” and has lots of interesting Bohemian style things. All of their shoes at the back of the store were on sale for 50% off. I could not resist, so I got these funky wedges. This colorful pair will go with so many things throughout different seasons. I like the detailed design around the edge of the soles.
Travelling Blue Ridge, Georgia – After Dinner Story
Ya’ll, I have to share my “after dinner story” with you from the night before we left Blue Ridge — I will describe this in colloquial humor so it is not T.M.I. …..
We were just leaving downtown Blue Ridge after a wonderful dinner and some last minute shopping. As soon as we got into the car I thought, “hmmm, is Montezuma calling?” I wasn’t sure because it was more like a text at that point and not a full-out call (if you aren’t familiar with what I’m talking about, Google ‘Montezuma’s Revenge’). Well, thank heavens that the hotel was only one mile away because as soon as we parked my thought became, “Good Lord, it’s the Charge of the Light Brigade!” I jumped out of the car and explained briefly to Big T that we needed to hurry to the elevator, pronto. Why is it in times like this that the elevator seems to be slow hoisted by hand?! We finally made it up to our floor and I told Big T to run ahead and throw that door wide open while I was speed walking right behind him — yes, our room was all the way at the end of the hall then a right-hand turn! I made it into the bathroom, whammed the door shut and began a tedious struggle with the long 18-inch nylon zipper down the back of my jumpsuit. Ladies, you know what I’m talking about. You cannot get in a hurry with a wiggly nylon zipper. It is like a Chinese finger trap, the more panicked you are with it, the tighter it clamps down and will not move! It finally zipped down and all panic subsided, for the moment. I did have to send Big T to the store for medicine before the stores closed to save me from having another terrifying episode. Have you seen the movie “Bridesmaids”, LOL. Except it is not that funny in real life, only as a story after the fact, ha!
(After you erase this visual out of your head, you can read my previous post about the cute navy jumpsuit here, that post also has shopping links for similar options.)
Goodbye, Blue Ridge, see you in the Fall! It was hard to leave, but it was time to get back home. We are already talking about our next weekend getaway. As for Blue Ridge in the Fall, we need to make reservations now since it is a popular Fall destination.

Thank you for sharing your weekend ….. I’ve enjoyed reading about each day! Those shoes are so cute! Now I need to go find something comfy to wear for the day, hubby and I are taking off for the day. I know it will be something cool to wear, we are getting a heat wave here in New Brunswick, which is suppose to last until next week sometime. Have a wonderful weekend!
Glad you enjoyed it, Kathy! Get yourself something cute and let me know. Down here in Georgia it is sweltering humidity, but that is always how July is, and it will get hotter moving toward August! Have a great weekend, enjoy your warm spell!
Loved those shoes and the bangle was really pretty too – it looks like your trip had a little bit of everything for you. I read the other daily updates and you certainly manage to stay cool, calm and collected throughout – I’m usually looking fairly frayed at the seams by the end of a busy holiday!
Hey, Leanne! I was surprised that this little town had such a vibrant boutique selection. Most of the shops had unique, quality merchandise at affordable prices. There were a few that were beyond my budget, but it was fun to look nonetheless. Great restaurants and scenery made it a relaxing trip, just what we needed! We had to get psyched up to travel back into Atlanta traffic. It amazes me that we can go from a hectic major city into a serene countryside within an hour or two, a nice convenient escape just outside of the chaos!
Thanks for visiting, I will pop over to see you on Cresting the Hill this morning 🙂
It’s the same here in Australia Lori Jo – you can go from the city to lovely little country towns in an hour or so. I love all the little shops you find in their main streets and it’s such a great way to spend a day or two isn’t it.
Thanks for linking up with us at #MLSTL and I’ve shared this on my SM 🙂
Hey, Leanne! Thanks for sharing, I truly appreciate it. Yes, I love the charm of little village towns. I was born near London, England, I might be able to handle a flight there to see where my parents lived when dad was in the U.S.A.F. My mother-in-law visited Australia when she was younger and part of a travelling group, she loved it. And I know a family that just went last year. They planned it all on their own and stayed for about 3 weeks. I don’t know if I could last on an airplane for that long though, where is an actual good halfway point to where you are located? Talk soon 😀
Such a beautiful area. TFS!
Hey, Amy! Yes, it is lovely and tranquil. We hope to do a day-trip in the Fall to see some nice colors. It has already booked up for overnight! Thanks for visiting 🙂
You looked well-coordinated for your holiday. Those wedges are cute and I like the details on them, too. I like bangles that make a statement and easy to put on and off. It’s great that Blue Ridge is not far from where you live. The change of colours in the fall would be gorgeous there.
Hey, Natalie! Yes, I would like to go up for a day-trip in the Fall, lovely but their busiest time of year. Hubby dragged feet until all of the hotels filled up now, but at least we can go and come back in the same day. I do like to stay away whenever possible though, feels like more of a vacation. Thanks for visiting!
Love your story and that gold bracelet. Boy, do I ever remember the struggle of getting out of a jumpsuit in a hurry. lol
Hey, Victoria! Hahaha! Glad you enjoyed it and found it entertaining. Yes, I wish the lady had given me some information for more of her jewelry. I had to have it, so unique with the gold wire. It is something I will wear a lot, just a step above costume jewelry, very sturdy and well made. Thanks for visiting, hope to see you again! 😀
I adore those wedges. They are so cute. Looks like it was a fun trip (despite the tummy troubles). #MLSTL
Hey, Kristin! Glad you enjoyed the post, it was fun until that very last minute, but even then it made for a funny story after the fact; kind of like a Seinfeld episode actually, ha! Yes, the wedges are really fun. Not for walking long distances, but they go with a lot of outfits. Tomorrow’s post will show the olive wedges that I bought there as well. Thanks for visiting!
