If you follow me on Twitter, you may already know that I got my wisdom teeth removed on Friday, so I apologize in advance if my writing seems a tad Vicotin-tinged today. Since I’ve spent the last 48 hours in sweatpants with bags of frozen peas strapped to my face, I don’t have the usual stock of outfit photos on hand. So I thought I’d take this opportunity to show off some of the pictures I took on my recent trip to the Carolinas. In addition to giving my mother-in-law a makeover and going to see the Lion King, I also went to the Biltmore Estate. I had only been there once before on a fifth-grade field trip, so it was nice to go back.
Just your average single-family home in the mountains.
There were no photos allowed inside the house, but I snapped some on the veranda (above) and of the view (below).
We didn’t get to do wine-tasting in fifth grade. I remedied that situation.
Obviously, I had to pick up a couple souvenirs, and not of the postcard or magnet variety. These earrings helped fuel my current mint green obsession, and these scented soaps reminded me of my grandma’s old house.
Has anyone else taken any unique trips this summer? Besides to the dentist?
