Scenes From a Romantic Getaway

Adam and I had a blast in Asheville.  We were gone just over 24 hours and it was everything I could have asked for.  Instead of boring you with every little perfect detail of the trip and all of our make out sessions (what what) I'll just show you the pictures and give you some snippets.  All taken from my cell phone because I was too busy holding my hubby's hand to take pictures with that heavy camera of mine!

Adam was in Dick's on Friday looking for shoe's for himself and saw these.  He surprised me with them on Friday afternoon.  Hot PINK Sneaks? Yes please.  I love them! And seriously they are comfortable.  Just what I need for walking around this weekend.

We stayed at a hotel right outside the Biltmore and the hotel was perfect.  We rented a movie and drank Diet Pepsi and ate Twix.
The weather was gorgeous and the Biltmore was packed.  The Festival of Flowers is going on so everything was in bloom.  The gardens were amazing.  Adam decided to valet park.  It was so worth the extra money, we drove right up and got out at the front door of the house.  We didn't have to deal with parking, waiting on the shuttle etc.  There is no going back to the shuttle days for me.  

It amazes me that people actually lived here. The house is OUT. OF. CONTROL.  I never get tired of seeing it.

This is the view from the porch on the back of the house.  It's breath taking.  The mountains are beautiful.

There was an elderly women that got a little overheated on Saturday and so the fire department/ambulance showed up. I made Adam take a picture next to the fire truck for Aidan.  The firemen thought it was hilarious.

We ate lunch at Cedric's Tavern before heading over to the winery for a wine tasting.

I had never done a wine tasting ever.  It was so much fun.  Here's a tip, skip the Festival of Flowers wine.  It's less than phenomenal.  

We took a drive up to Antler Hill village on the property and walked over to the farm.  They had baby lamb's and I almost tracked someone down to see if I could take one home.  They were "baa" ing and it was one of the sweetest sounds I have ever heard.  If Aidan "baa" ed I would love it. Haha!

The day was winding down and we honestly debated staying another night.  We quickly remembered we had to get back to Charlotte to play the Easter Bunny and hit the road for home.  

We are still talking about how nice it was.   I love that we could drive a short two hours away and get to do this. I think dating, married, with or without kids, taking time to separate yourself from your everyday is so good for a relationship. 

Easter post to follow! xoxox
