Asheville Part Deux

We love Asheville!  Such a fun city with lots to do and a laid-back attitude.  As Jayne mentioned yesterday, we stayed at The Cedar Crest Inn, aka "The Pink Lady," which was perfect for our girls' weekend getaway!  The B&B was great.  We stayed in "The Celebration Suite" on the 3rd floor, so we had two bedrooms and a bathroom.  Breakfast was delicious every morning, and it was so nice to roll out of bed and head straight down to a nice meal.  We especially loved the wrap-around porch and spent many hours out there playing cards and laughing at stupid stuff like the giant cat roaming around the house, who I named "Mr. Pudding." 

We spent a day at "America's Largest Home," The Biltmore.  It was awesome!  We all loved the audio tour throughout the house and the gardens are amazing.  We have also heard that it's ridiculous at Christmas time and now I can't wait to go back and see it all decked out for the holidays!


We also spent a lot of time in the cool and unique shops around Asheville.  Some of the treats I picked up:
A tea towel from Malaprop's.  (Tea towel not available on their site, but for sale here instead.)  I want to frame it and hang it in a bedroom!
These adorable earrings (sorry for the distorted image!)
This scarf (again with the blur, Urban Outfitters doesn't like to share it's images) Our mom bought us these scarves which we then both wore the next day - not dorky at all.

On our last night, we had a delicious dinner at Rezaz.  We highly recommend it to anyone visiting Asheville, the food was great and the atmosphere was festive and fun!

Can we go back now please?
