Hey party people! How was your weekend? We had absolutely gorgeous weather here in Western North Carolina this weekend. It rained all day on Friday, but was a much-needed rain. The pollen has been crazy the past couple of weeks with the season change. A day of rain made for a beautiful Saturday and Sunday.
My weekend was filled with lots of fun events, family, and friends. On Saturday, my sister and a couple of my girlfriends went to a festival in downtown Sylva. My sweet boyfriend plays in a band and they were in the line up of performers for the event. They have a new CD coming out in May. I’ll share more details soon!
There were so many beautiful vendors set up. Lots of local artists displaying their pottery, jewelry, yummy food vendors, and local businesses. Speaking of food, we ate at Al’s BBQ for lunch. They were serving BBQ platters that came with pinto beans with smoked turkey, cabbage, and hush puppies. I substituted the BBQ sandwich for a brot with grilled peppers. Yum! I also went a little crazy and bought some caramel kettle corn. It’s too bad I remembered to buy something sweet, but didn’t remember my sunscreen. Ouch!
My famous rockstar boyfriend had another show that night at a local pub. Isn’t he cute?!
On Sunday, my sister and I went to a family reunion and ate even more amazing food (this is why I can’t lose weight, people). On our drive back, I was seriously in awe of how green everything is now. It really, really felt like spring. It was a windows down, free bird kind of drive home. I’m telling you, this home of mine continuously leaves me amazed by its beauty.
That was my weekend. A busy one, but really fun! How was your weekend? Do anything fun?
