ruffles take the peach state + a trip to bebe's

Last Thursday, Camp and I headed to Blue Ridge to see Bebe & Chandler (we were so sad that Papa had to go back to work just the day before )
They've moved into their beautiful new home and I was so excited to check it out...this view is enough for me, but their house is just as gorgeous!

After the sun had set...

view in the morning...

the gorgeous kitchen...

We spent lots of our time at my favorite place in Blue Ridge...Merciers!

Camp loves Merciers too...here he is looking for the "bird" he shot. :)



Playing with the tractors...


On Friday, I left Camp in BR with Bebe (thank you, bebe!!) and headed south to Atlanta to meet up with the Ruffles!!
We dined at Taqueria del Sol, Friday night. It was sooooooo tasty and I've been craving their fried chicken tacos ever since.


Mary tempting me with a margarita...

Yummy salsa trio.
The chips, guac, and queso were just fabulous too...

yum


On Saturday we headed to VA Highlands for shopping and lunch...I stole this picture from Heather. :)

Saturday, we ate dinner at one of my favorite places, JCT Kitchen. I had the sweet onion and fontina agnolotti, the fall version of the sweet corn and goat cheese filled pasta that I got when I went to JCT Kitchen with Beth in March of 2010. I dream about that pasta daily, but this fall version was mighty tasty as well!! We also had their pimento cheese appetizer and it was delish!!

Sunday morning we headed to Canoe for brunch (are you seeing a trend in these ruffle getaways? We plan our trips around the food!!!)
This is Holly's pretty soup...was it butternut squash??

And the she-crab soup...this was amazing. Heather ordered it, but let me share it with her!

Beautiful Canoe...


an impromptu maternity photo session with mary...haha.


It was a wonderful rendezvous, as they always are!! Can't wait for the next one...

Toby, OMG... Your house is GORGEOUS! And Lane, Atlanta is always a great place for a food vacation. Can never run out of good places to eat here! When you were at Murphy's did you recognize my old apartment building across the street? What about Moe's and Joe's? Do you remember when I took you and Trip there for dinner? You two were the coolest little kids hanging out in a bar EVER!

Lane said...

Haha, Charlotte...I did recognize your apartment and even told the girls you used to live there. I don't remember going to a bar with you though!! :) LOL
