Yesterday on a "whim" Emily, her friend, Sammy and her friend's mom wanted to go to the Coach outlet in Blowing Rock, NC so we left at 10 am and got home at 10 pm. It is about 115 miles from here. We shopped in Blowing Rock and Boone and had a great day. The shops closed at 5 so on the way home we ate dinner at Emily's all time favorite Outback Steakhouse. Here's Emily and Sammy.
