It's not often I get to have a girl's weekend anymore, so when Rach decided to invite a bunch of us to Asheville to celebrate her birthday, I jumped on it. Kimhead and I planned to share a room and while I was totally out of the loop on the planning (which is so unlike me!!!) I was ready to get in some quality time with some of my favorite people. People I don't get to see nearly as often as I would like!
We spent the bulk of the day downtown shopping. I nabbed myself a handmade magnet and a light blue basket. I got Bimmer some ABC magnets (that will go in her Easter basket) and a sticker pad. Oh yeah, not to mention that little (lotta) bit o' cash I dropped at Chocolate Fetish. Mmmmmm.... sea salt caramels are my fave!
We lunched at Tupelo Honey and spent the afternoon resting before heading back downtown for dinner at Olive or Twist. The management of the place was pretty ridiculous (they were out of both orange juice for my cocktail AND coffee) but the atmosphere was cool.
I do have to pimp one of my favorite Asheville stores, L.O.F.T. They have the most eclectic and fun stuff. It's where I got Bimmer's ABC magnets (which are wooden and have pretty colored patterns on them) and in the past I've snagged her books and pinwheels there. But this time around, I couldn't help but gravitate to the other novelty items they had...
After dinner and a few more stops, Kimhead and I decided we didn't feel like bar hopping, so we left the rest of the gang to head back to the hotel, but not before we stumbled upon a creperie. Um, yes, please. Couldn't have thought of a better way to end the weekend with my girls. Nutella takes everything up a notch.
