This past weekend was spent in Asheville, NC with Brian! Asheville is where we met (remember this post), so it's always fun to go back! His family has a condo in downtown Asheville, so that is the area where we spend most of our time when we're there! We can walk everywhere, which is an added bonus! It was a much needed weekend away with just the two of us!!

We arrived into Asheville right around dinner time Friday night, so we decided to grab some pizza from Barley's Taproom. They have delicious pizza and a great beer selection. It was the perfect atmosphere after a long, rainy drive! After dinner we did a little bar hopping, which is always a good time!
Saturday morning we went to City Bakery Cafe for breakfast. If you're ever in Downtown Asheville I highly suggest eating here! They have the best stuffed french toast (french toast + cream cheese + local jam). It was even better than I remembered!
Saturday was pretty rainy for the first half of the day, so it was the perfect excuse to go see Gatsby in 3D (finally). I had been anticipating seeing this movie since I saw the previews months ago. It was good, but I wouldn't say it was amazing or everything I thought it would have been! I definitely still like the book better. If you saw it what did you think?
The weather finally cleared up the second half of Saturday and we were able to enjoy our view on the balcony, have a nice dinner downtown, and play around town!! We did discover that one of our favorite bars had closed though. It was a favorite of mine, Brian, Bre and Jeremy's! Looks like we will have to find a new favorite spot the next time we're all there together!!
Sunday was definitely a nicer day. I really wish Saturday had been as nice! We spent a few hours enjoying the weather before it was time to say goodbye to Asheville once again. This was the first trip that I made it to the double decker bus, Double D's, for coffee!! I had always gone by it and wanted to try it, but never had! I am so glad we had time to yesterday. It may be my new favorite place for coffee in Asheville. Aside from the awesome bus, the coffee was excellent! Quite possibly the best iced vanilla latte I've had!
It was such an enjoyable weekend with Brian, although the end of the weekend means it's back to long distance. I'm so glad we got to spend a weekend just the two of us in one of our favorite places! I'm already looking forward to next weekend.
Hope you all had a great weekend as well!
