Bald (ing) Rock

Ah yes... After approximately 1.5 weeks of being at home, we got cabin fever and ran away to the mountains of North Carolina for part of the day. I was getting anxious to see mountains before our trip to Wyoming later this week, so it seemed as good a time as any to get out and get some fresh air. 

It was raining as we drove up to the top of the mountain. An excellent time to sit in the car and take a nap! ;) 

But, the rain moved on, leaving gloomy, foggy skies and lots of misty rising from the rocks and hills.

After Bald Rock, we drove up the rest of the mountain to Caesar's Head. Gorgeous views, as always.  

Little day trips like this are always such a blast. It gives Aaron and I a good chance to just talk and relax without the distraction of phones. The added benefit of course is seeing what scenes lie just beyond our doorstep. 

Weekend Recap

Was it just me, or did this weekend FLY by? My weekends usually take up Friday, Saturday, and Sunday since my husband also has those days off. STILL! Three day weekends aren't supposed to just breeze on past.

It was an awesome weekend, though.

On Friday a group of us of us drove up to Hendersonville, NC because, why not?

Red leaves are my favorite. 

pumpkins, gourds, and baskets of apples

Of course, as tradition dictates, we ate at our favorite restaurant, Hanna Flannigans. (no good pictures- sorry!) I got the Irish dip soup (because I can't order anything else there. I'm quite literally unable to.) with the fresh chips because they're usually quite tasty. If you're looking for an appetizer, I can promise the spinach and artichoke dip will astound you. For dessert, I highly recommend the Irish Cream pie. Amazing. Delectable. If you're a coffee person, order some coffee and practically perfect. 

Downtown Hendersonville has some quaint stores, adorable coffee shops, and rambling antique stores. It is the perfect place to spend a warm, fall afternoon. 

Weekend links

Thrilled it is finally the weekend again! I foresee a crazy busy weekend full of work, spending time with family before they leave for Hawaii, movies, coffee dates (hey, Laura!!), and knitting. Here are some interesting links I found this week that I think you may enjoy.

This article  fascinated me!! I read it through twice. What kids around the world eat for breakfast. Soybeans and squash for breakfast. Could you (or would you) try that? And would you choose to feed your kids that? 

Curried popcorn? YES!?! 

I needed yet another DIY. Woven rope door mat. (Psst. Also, her blog is one of my favorites. Perfect bits of minimalism and beauty.)  

I keep drooling over the falls colors on Classy Girls Wear Pearls. If you need a bit of posh, New England fashion I highly suggest you check it out. 

Happy weekend!
