Blowing Rock Cabin Weekend

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!

Our cozy little cabin for the weekend

 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

Fiesta Casserole & Mimosas for breakfast

 Boots? Check. Ball? Check. Jacket? Check.

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…

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! :)
