Pretty Big House

I have way too many pictures for this post. Not saying it’s a bad thing, it’s just so hard figuring out which ones to put in a post! So those who know me, know I’m probably the most indecisive person ever and know that I couldn’t possibly just pick a limited amount of pictures… So expect another blog post with the rest of the pictures. 😉
We stayed in Asheville the last night of the road trip, which is conveniently right by the Biltmore. We decided to head over to the Biltmore but first, we had to get some food.(of course, I’m such a foodie. And so is Kyle so it works out really well. 😉 ) I was told that Asheville has AMAZING local restaurants around. I was determined to eat at one of them. I’m the kind of person who loves local food. I don’t understand why people go to chain restaurants at new places, as you can eat at them whenever you want. I wanted something different and new! We stopped at one place and it was so cute and so crowded. I asked about the wait and it was about 2 hours. Props to the restaurant and the people who wanted to wait that long. (But I sure don’t have time for that!) and that was just for breakfast!! We decided to head over to the Moose Café in Asheville. Luckily, the wait was only 15 minutes. I read reviews about the place and some said it was the best southern food around. Oh and it was! And I tried apple butter for the first time; it was so freaking good. I can’t believe I’ve been that long without it! I could probably eat at that place every day for a month and not get tired of it. It was sooo good! Not only was the food good, I think we got the best seat in the house. It had the view of mountains all around the building. So worth it! (I can seriously go on and on about food, lol)
Anyways, we ended up going to The Biltmore afterwards. I’ve seen the house in tv shows, heard ghost stories about it, and pictures on the internet but I’ve never had the privilege to go see it in person. Pictures definitely don’t do that house justice. It was breathtaking. We ended up taking a tour of the house and thank god for signs because I would’ve been so lost in the house if not. Seriously. I did take pictures of the inside of the house but again, it just didn’t the house justice! You must see it for your own eyes. I’m sure it was absolutely magical being a Vanderbilt! I was thinking of how life would be if someone lived in it now. Probably pretty freaky. I wouldn’t want to be in the house alone at night. For one, I would get lost, and two, I watch too many horror movies. I freaked myself out just walking around long hallways!! Does anyone have a mad obsession with scary movies? I do!!
Stay tuned for my next post with the last of the pictures from my roadtrip. I’ve been so extremely busy with school and work, there’s not enough time in the day!! Thanks so much for reading! Let me know if you’ve ever been to the Biltmore or any other amazing estate or plantation! Xox
