Birthday Memories…

All my favorite people at The Biltmore House

Well what a birthday weekend!  I thought I would share with you a few pictures and memories made throughout the 4 day festivity. 🙂

Friday: {Actual Birthday}

Raymond and I tried a new spot for lunch: Big Bens Pub in SouthEnd Charlotte.  Very tasty Fish N Chips — Raymond ate all of his plus some of mine — he must have been hungry!

I had dinner with my wonderful parents at PF Changs.  The place was jumpin’ (aka packed), but we managed to have a great time (reservations always helps)!

Sunday: {Biltmore House, Asheville, NC}

Brunch stop at Mayfels in downtown Asheville.  Delicious burgers!  Too bad Dad ordered breakfast — the burgers were much better!

It was a chilly day but great weather to enjoy the gorgeous house!  Walking picture tours are always the best!

Dad likes taking pictures

Took us a few hours to see the house!  I was so happy to check out new rooms that have been refurbished and open to the public!  That was a nice surprise!

Monday: {Spa Day with Mom At Rock Barn Spa in Hickory, NC}

We usually visit The Grove Park Inn & Spa for my birthday, but due to their ever increasing costs, we decided not to go.  My dear friend, Lauren Nix, mentioned Rock Barn so we thought we would give it a whirl!  {THANK YOU Lauren!} It was fantastic!  The morning started off with a hot stone massage, my first ever and definitely will not be last.  The day was complete with gorgeous mineral salt pools and whirlpools. We ended the day with a pedicure and refreshing spa water.  “Aaahhh”

Im happy to see the birthday festivities end — they are exhausting!  🙂

Until next time….
