This weekend was one that left me droopy eyed and daydreaming of snuggling into bed for a LONG night’s sleep.
It was that good 🙂
Friday sister made her way into town and after whipping up another freezer-inspired meal to enjoy with the parents we headed out for a sister date to West Asheville making a stop of Tolliver’s then onto Westville Pub.
Saturday we took our sweet Granny downtown to Tupelo Honey Cafe for breakfast. She is not a big fan of downtown. Apparently every time she has been down there she has gotten a parking ticket, and as we drove around to find a parking spot she determined that the restaurant looked like a hippy place 🙂 I assured her it wasn’t and the food was supposed to be incredible, one of the best brunches in Asheville.
After her first sip of peach tea and a scrumptious bite of her sweet potato pancake she was a believer. She decided it wasn’t such a hippy place after all and her food was delicious.
Sister dined on a goat cheese and basil omelet with home fries, while I enjoyed the Eggs Betty which was basically eggs benedict served with goat cheese grits…and adorable edible flowers.
We spent the rest of the day visiting ever yarn shop Asheville had to offer, stocking up on soaps and lotion making supplies from Appalachian Naturals, then running a few errands before coming home to change, make said lotion (recipe to come) and eat dinner…then going back downtown to meet a few friends for a drink at the Vault. An accidental pulling of a fire alarm cut our night short so we finally headed home to catch a few zzz’s.
Sunday started off with church and dinner at Granny’s before we finally made it to Yacht Rock at the Southern.
Our friend Hannah’s fiance hosts an awesome Sunday brunch party downtown where he dons his captain’s hat and spins your favorite soft rock hits while you enjoy mimosa’s and the bloody mary bar. We were pretty sad we hadn’t made it before.
And this is where we decided to end our weekend with a bang. Hannah’s fiance was officially off so we soaked our bloody mary’s down and headed to the Vault for frozen margaritas. It was there we were informed that a local Ashevillian who participated on the Food Network show Cupcake Wars was going to be at Broadways later that night…cupcakes in tow.
So of course we had to check it out and meet the local star. Six mini cupcakes and a few beers later we finally took our sleepy selves home.
We basically visited every restaurant/bar establishment in Asheville (ok not every), ate and drank all our bellies could hold, and lived up the last free weekend I have in Asheville.
