Tuesday

Eight Lovies

This past weekend was pretty amazing.

Low-key Friday night at home with Chinese take-out and Game of Thrones (we're obsessed).

Early departure Saturday morning to the mountain house.

Eight things I absolutely loved from the weekend:

{1} Blue Moon with lunch.  Because it's the weekend.  And you can't do that during the week.  Nothing says "you have officially made it to the weekend" like an afternoon bevo.


{2} Chilly mountain air temps that called for a pashmina.  And yes, we went back to Char in downtoon Boone for lunch ... we are obsessed with that place and their sweet potato fries.


{3} The anticipation of driving up the mountain to get to la casa.


{4} Driving with windows down, sunroof back, and not giving a flip about my hair.


{5} Self portraits after a ride on the ranger down to the creek.  The ranger is a camouflaged, open-air, hold on for your dear life and buckle that lap belt ATV.


{6} Target practice.  Don't mess.  You can see them on the lower right.


{7} Straight up dominating that target.  Annie Oakley here.  I outshot Ian, too.


{8} Homemade cucumber gimlets with basil simple syrup.  Umm, let me just say that these are a life-changer.  Will post the recipe soon.


Saturday evening we went to The Painted Fish for dinner and had the best time.  We hit the outlets in Blowing Rock before heading home on Sunday.  Awesome, awesome weekend together.

  4. Looks like so much fun!

    I want to go target shooting with Brian one day. The only gun I've ever shot is a BB gun and I beat him and his brother! Ha! It was pretty fun.

    And I love the color of your pashima. I have one in the same color. I usually wear it more as a scarf though.

  9. I was so jealous when I saw you actually looked happy and comfortable wearing a pashmina. I am SO looking forward to some temperatures when I can do the same!
