Relaxing get-away weekend

I just returned home from a very relaxing weekend with my hubby. It was so nice - we rarely go on vacation together as he doesn't get much vacation per year and we tend to spend most of it visiting family (which I do love as well). "Us" time is very important though and I'm glad we made it a priority. If you are in the area, I highly recommend visiting the Biltmore in Asheville, NC. It was lovely. We stayed at the Inn at the Biltmore which was nothing short of fabulous. This was the view from our room - the winery. The Biltmore house itself was amazing - we couldn't take pictures once inside but I managed to snap off a few here and there. Below is a picture of the view from the back of the Biltmore house - AMAZING.... We also visited the Biltmore winery (picture below). We took part in their free wine tasting which was also a very nice experience. Of course, we didn't leave empty-handed :) Caution - if you're hungry, don't read this next part :) After the winery, we ate at the Bistro next to the winery - YUM! I had pecan crusted snapper with pumpkin risoto followed by a wonderful creme brulee. I didn't remember to take a pic of the meal though :( Then it was back to the hotel where we relaxed and watched the sun finish setting. It rained most of the next day but we did manage a trip to the Conservatory in between showers. It was a little out of season, but the flowers that remained outside were still stunning. Then we headed off to spend the night with good friends of ours. It was an excellent time, as always :) We went to see "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" with their family - highly recommended as well. Very funny and entertaining for adults and children alike. We had a wonderful time and I always hate to leave :( TTFN, - Custom comment codes for MySpace, Hi5, Friendster and more
