Birthday Memories…

All my favorite people at The Biltmore House

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

Friday: {Actual Birthday}

Raymond and I tried a new spot for lunch: Big Bens Pub in SouthEnd Charlotte. ┬áVery 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. ┬áThe 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. ┬áDelicious burgers! ┬áToo bad Dad ordered breakfast — the burgers were much better!

Lunch at Mayfels

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. ┬áMy dear friend, Lauren Nix, mentioned Rock Barn so we thought we would give it a whirl! ┬á{THANK YOU Lauren!} It was fantastic! ┬áThe morning started off with a hot stone massage, my first ever and definitely will not be last. ┬áThe day was complete with gorgeous mineral salt pools and whirlpools. We ended the day with a pedicure and refreshing spa water. ┬á“Aaahhh”

Im happy to see the birthday┬áfestivities┬áend — they are exhausting! ┬á­čÖé

Until next time….
