Going on a Girls’ Trip

I know, I know ~~~  I should stay at home and decorate my house like all of you are doing.  Instead I have an opportunity to travel with my oldest daughter, Angie.  She is the mother of three little, precious boys, also known as my darling grandchildren and she is my travel companion for a much deserved getaway for her!




We are traveling to Asheville, North Carolina to The Biltmore house, America’s Largest Home. 


Not only are we going to visit this gorgeous, unbelievable house (my second visit, Angie’s first) we are also going to take a Candlelight Tour all decked out for Christmas.  I can hardly wait!




To make it even more fun, we are meeting up with some friends I met several years ago through Southern Living.  I have met all but one before and you couldn’t ask to spend time with nicer people.  :)

Just because it’s on the way, we will spend a day in Chicago, with daughter number two, Emily.  She lives there and we plan to shop with her since she has the day off.



So keep on decorating while I’m gone.  I’ll be anxious to see your homes when I return.  Just realize I may be a little delayed with my home decor for Christmas, but maybe I’ll check some names off my gift list while doing a little shopping!!


I do plan to join in with Marty at “A Stroll Thru Life” and her cloche party, so check back here on Friday.


Tootles for now!

My hubby and I honeymooned in the Asheville NC area (Christmastime) and enjoyed the candlelight tour as well. I know all of you will have a blast. Enjoy!

Hi Donna! Have a wonderful time with your daughters and how fun to get to see the Biltmore at Christmas. I've never seen it at all! I think I'm deprived! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Oh my that looks beautiful! My boss has been there, and loved it! Have a fantastic time, spending time with loved ones is what Christmas is really about, not how many wreaths you hang! Sue

Just wanted to pop over and say thanks for visiting my blog. I am new at this, so love meeting fellow bloggers.
I'm so envious of you getting to see Biltmore House. This must be the perfect time for a visit. I imagine Christmas there is magical. Have a great time with your daughters. Bring back lots of pictures.

I have been looking and looking and somehow your post didn't publish for the Cloche Party. If I ever see it come up I will link it right away. Hope you're having a wonderful time. Hugs, Marty
