NEWS FLASH! We’re getting married! Oh, right. You knew that. Sorry…just a bit excited. We did some recon (reconnaissance) this weekend. We wanted to find a hair salon, florist, etc. Well, what we found was a commune of sorts. *snort*
This recipe happened this week along with…
It’s really sick the amount of time we spend in traffic some days. Yes…that reads 3 minutes a mile. *sigh*
So, Friday morning we dropped missing off at the grandparents house. They LOVE spoiling her. Then headed to Wintergreen, VA after work. We spent the night in a Red Roof Inn off 81. Okay. It looks like a typical Red Roof Inn on the outside, BUT the rooms have been renovated. They have granite-look counter tops, new tile floor in the bathroom, HARD WOOD style floors in the main area, flat screen TV on the wall, new furniture. It was quite refreshing to stay in a room that looked nice and didn’t cost a small fortune.
Saturday we are I am up before dawn. I try to go back to sleep. That rarely works for me. I think I slept another 30 minutes or so? *shrugs* So, I put my fleece on, grab the iPad and head to the lounge for coffee. I’m there 20 or so before S texts me, “Are you okay?” Um…thought you were sleeping when I left. We pack up and head to Cracker Barrel for breakfast. YUM!
I found these, but didn’t buy any. I’m thinking they’ll be a good baking idea?
Not that I’ve ever MADE Moon Pies but still…
Wintergreen Resort is essentially an all inclusive resort. There’s golf, tubing, a zip line, skiing, a lake, hiking, a fitness center, three restaurants and a few cafes, shopping, a performing arts center, tennis, fishing, etc etc etc. Since the nearest town is about 9 miles off the mountain, our recon mission was quick. We made reservations for our stay there (THANKS DAD! LOVE YA!) and then decided to drive back on the Blue Ridge Parkway to Skyline Drive.
We stopped at Humpback Rocks Visitors Center for some water and walked through the living museum they have there. I’m always interested in how simple life was back then.
We have a nice dinner with Dad and R. I love them to death!! Yes, he’s my father and I have to, but he really does make it easy! And R! OMG she’s a doll and they’re perfect together. It was late when we got home and were so exhausted! We watched some TV, but started falling asleep so I dragged us to bed.
Well, that was OUR weekend? How was yours?
