I'm alive and well! I've just been busy scrambling around seeing different people and cleaning out Patrick's game room. Also, all of my technology has decided to stop working. My laptop barely charges as does my phone, and I thought maybe just getting a new charger would do it for my phone, but the new charger I got doesn't work for it either. Hmph! I should probably get to Verizon before Christmas so there won't be a big crowd of people...errr would there be less of a crowd after Christmas? Anyways, last week I went to The Biltmore, and it was so amazingly beautiful. I was shaking while we were on the shuttle from the anticipation. It was Patrick's first time, and I think he really enjoyed himself. We didn't buy a tour so Patrick gave me his own personal tour of the house which was definitely very entertaining even if none of it was accurate. Here are some touristy photos I took. I didn't get a picture of the front of the house (whaaat?) but I did get a picture of the side and inside the greenhouse.
This guy gave Patrick the strangest look, and we thought he was the most comical thing we'd seen all day so I immortalized him through the power of photography.
Here are cellphone pictures of inside the stables. They made it into a cafe and you could eat in stalls that were made into booths. We had the Carolina Barbecue Sandwich, and it was SO good. I'm getting hungry thinking about it. This "Gourmet Market" that's in the second picture down had $14 beers. I don't think so. I wouldn't pay that for a beer unless Vanderbilt himself handed it to me.
I'm so unbelievably grateful that I was able to visit one of my favorite places, and with one of my favorite people. I just love that house. Welp! Only 4 more days till Christmas and I am oh so excited. I just need to make a gingerbread house and wrap my gifts and I'll be good to go. I hope everyone else's week went swimmingly!
Till next time,
