The Biltmore House

Saturday, February 7, 2015

This week has been a week of being blessed and spoiled. In one week I have had four meals paid for by other people just because they love me, I have been soiled at the Clinique counter by my mother-in-law, I was given a free, 30 minute massage, and then yesterday, I was taken to the Biltmore House for the first time ever, again, for free! I cannot tell you how much I appreciate all these things and that the Lord not only provides, but sometimes he allows us to be spoiled :) I am a blessed girl.

The Biltmore House is less than an hour away from me and Taylor, but I have never been. I have always wanted to go, but could never afford it. But yesterday, Toni (Taylor's mom), and our friend Renee went to the Biltmore House. They were excited about the Downton Abby exhibit, which was really cool, but I was just glad to get to see the house. You cannot photograph inside the house, but I got some outside beforehand :)

We explored the bottom floor of the house and then we took a break and had lunch. We ate at The Stable, a restaurant located in what used to be the house's horse stables. They've fixed it up and converted it into a restaurant. I personally love the way it looks!

Toni got a burger and fries and Renee and I both got the herb roasted chicken with mashed-potatoes. I also got a side of soup. It was all great! I was very happy with everything I ordered and I loved the atmosphere. The service was great too!

After we ate, we headed back to the house to finish the tour. I think my favorite parts were the swimming pool, the bowling alley, and the pantry full of blue mason jars. I know those things are not actually that impressive compared to the rest of the house, but I loved it.

We finished touring, took a few more photos, and then headed home. It was a great day with two wonderful ladies. I am very thankful for them and for my day with them.

Have a great day!


  1. Love the pic of you with the lion. Ahhh! A pantry full of blue mason jars. Thanks for sharing.

      The blue mason jars made me think of you. I wish you could see it!
