This past weekend we took a trip to Blowing Rock North Carolina to celebrate our daughter Lauren's 30th birthday!  The weather wasn't great, but we made the most of it and had a really relaxing, fun weekend! We were fortunate to be able to stay in our friends beautiful mountain house!  The view was beautiful, but the best part was the fireplace.  We kept a fire burning most of the time we were there and it was perfect!  As you can see below, the fireplace is spectacular and the house is stunning!

I don't have any outfit ideas or recipes today, because this weekend was totally about relaxing!  I read most of Shonda Rhimes Year of Yes, ate delicious food, and played with my sweet grandson!



Saturday, since the weather wasn't great, we took a drive along The Blue Ridge Parkway and took in some of the breath taking views!  The weather did start to clear a bit and I was wishing that I had worn my hiking shoes!  We decided to definitely come back and hike some of the trails!



This was the view from the Stadler's deck.  The picture doesn't do it justice, but does Hudson look like his dad or what?!


We had dinner at The Gamekeeper for Lauren's birthday and it definitely didn't disappoint!  I would recommend it if you are ever in the area!

When we drove into the driveway, the tulips had started to bloom!  It was the perfect ending to a great weekend!
