My days this week have been all wompy! The girls got a Hurricane day last Friday and then were on Fall break Mon-Wed of this week. So basically all I know is today is Friday, right!? Thankfully our area did not receive any real damage from the Hurricane Matthew. We had already left for our vacation so we missed all the weather but kept up with it on the XM during on travels and checked in with family.
Now onto some of the highlights from this week! Warning….lots of pics this week! 🙂
On our way up to Black Mountain, NC we spent a night in our favorite Downtown! We miss you Gville!
While in Greenville we ate dinner at California Dreaming and I had my favorite salad. Their house dressing is to die for and their croissants melt in your mouth!
Walking around Downtown
The girls were excited to visit the ducks again!
Shrimp and Grits
We were looking forward to hitting up the Downtown Farmer’s Market Saturday but it was canceled due to high winds. Thankfully Soby’s on the Side was open and we were still able to get our Shrimp and Grits and delicious muffins! We were happy!
Corn Maze at Eliada Homes, Asheville
This is the largest corn maze in Western North Carolina. We had fun getting lost in the maze and doing all the other activities they had to offer! Plus it was for a good cause…the proceeds go to helping take care of high risk children and adolescents. Here’s more info about Eliada.
Green Sage Cafe
Just one of the many awesome things about Asheville is the variety of food. You do not have to look far to find healthy options for everyone. Whether you are vegan, gluten free, dairy free or if you can eat whatever you want, they have it! The Green Sage Cafe had so many vegan and gluten free options and the food was delicious! I ordered a vegan mocha shake, it was made vegan by using coconut milk and coconut ice cream! I also ordered the Buenos Burrito which was filled with scrambled eggs, black beans, spinach, root hash, avocado salsa, and spicy habanero pepper jack cheese. Another thing I love about the Green Sage Cafe is that they use local, organic, non-gmo and humanely-raised ingredients!
We stayed in a house on Black Mountain and it was so remote and peaceful with beautiful views!
In the evenings we enjoyed playing ALL the games! Bingo, Twister, Table Tennis, and Foosball!
We enjoyed the sunrise each morning from our back deck. Nothing like cool, crisp, mountain air to get your day started off right! And a hot mug of Molasses milk!
We loved our hike up to the top of Craggy Pinnacle!
Then we drove over to Mt. Mitchell and did the short hike up to the summit, the highest point east of the Mississippi at 6,634 ft.
We had a great time getting away from everything and just enjoying being together!
I hope you all have had a lovely week!
Today I’m linking up with Heather.
