Running around Asheville

Last weekend I had the chance to get together with all of my favorite girlfriends for my bachelorette in Asheville! It was a packed full weekend which is totally my speed. We stayed in the most charming little house in West Asheville which was fun to see the residential areas while we were there. My sister was the party planner and had everything planned out perfectly! Here's a photo recap of our jaunt around Asheville...


  • Waking Life coffee shop - BEST nitro coffee pour! You don't even need milk.
  • Hike around the Folk Art Center - beautiful views on the way up the Blue Ridge Parkway
  • Walking brewery tour - Wicked Weed, Green Man Brewery, Twin Leaf Brewery (my fave!). All of the breweries had a great indoor/outdoor open breeze. It was a gorgeous day to enjoy beers around Asheville.
  • After a great day out, we came back for happy hour and to my surprise a cocktail themed shower! So sweet, and so fun!!
  • Dinner and drinks at Cucina24 and MG Road - great atmosphere and right in the middle of everything

  • Breakfast and coffee at High Five Coffee - I'm still dreaming about the smoothie I had!
  • Gorgeous walk around the North Carolina Arboretum 
  • Lunch at Rhubarb - don't let the double burger fool you - it's small and amazing especially with pimento cheese. We followed that up with beers at One World Brewing
  • We started our night off at the Grove Park Inn Sunset Cocktail Terrace and it was beautiful! The best view all weekend, plus the peach and basil gimlet can't be topped.
  • Dinner was at Rezaz where we had the chef's table (see picture above - right in the middle of the kitchen action) for a 5 course meal with wine pairing. It was absolutely delicious!
  • We couldn't get enough of the Grove Park Inn so we headed there after dinner for more fun and drinks. And if you can't tell we ended the weekend on a high by spotting Kate Upton on a girls weekend!
The entire weekend was thought out perfectly and hit all of my high notes for what I imagined in Asheville! It was the perfect way to kick off the festivities for Mr. B and I since we are quickly closing in on 10.17.15!! Next up.... bridal portraits!

Happy Friday!
