Blowing Rock Cabin Weekend

This past weekend, Matt, Charlie, and I spent 3 days in a cozy little cabin in Blowing Rock, NC.  Matt actually booked this weekend a long time ago as part one of my Christmas gifts, so I was SO excited for the weekend to finally arrive!

 Charlie was so excited to roam the property all weekend 
Our backyard
I surprised Matt with Blowing Rock IPA. He thought it was clever.
We spent one afternoon in downtown Blowing Rock, {which just so happened to be Winterfest}, window shopped, and ate lunch at Mellow Mushroom!
We popped in at The Barking Rock Pet Boutique & Bakery to get a little snack for Charlie. 
Dessert time!
The gorgeous morning we woke up to
coffee by the fireplace
Fiesta Casserole & Mimosas for breakfast
 Boots? Check. Ball? Check. Jacket? Check.
My two handsome guys!
Lunch: guacamole grilled cheese {recipe}, zucchini chips {recipe} and butternut squash soup {recipe}
Prepping the spaghetti sauce to simmer all day...
and enjoying the rest of the wine!
A little Jenga...

  10. SO STINKIN' FUN!! And just a small tidbit of advice [because you didn't ask for it and all]... take these trips and take them again and again... as many times as you can before y'all jump on the baby bandwagon! We did and were so thankful to have traveled and had our fun before baby J joined us! We still plan on traveling / going on random trips, but it's pretty obvious that they require a lot more planning / work than they used to!

    You'll cherish these trips!!

    Y'all are gorgeous and I'm glad y'all had a fun time... with the pup even! Love it!

  11. I love Blowing Rock. It's one of my favorite places! We get up there quite a bit. Looks like you had a great time!

  20. Ahhh I'm so jealous!! :( Blowing Rock is my favorite place in the NC mountains! My family goes there at least once a month! Did you happen to stop in Kilwin's? Fudge & Ice's heaven!! :) I can't wait to be back in the Carolinas! ;)

  21. Can you email me the company you rented your cabin from. We are long overdue for a trip back to Blowing Rock.


  22. Looks like the perfect weekend getaway!! My husband and I were just looking at places recently to have a littl escape to the mountains. We live in Texas, so we don't have places close by like that or views like that!!! I love your pictures. What a cute family! :)
