friends come to visit & our 1st snow of the year

We had some friends in town from Missouri last weekend and did our best to show them some southern hospitality.

We...
ate New York pizza
 had lunch on the lake
went wine tasting at a local vineyard
played basketball (the boys)
shopped at Birkdale Village (the girls)
grabbed drinks at a wine bar
crocked dinner
baked cupcakes
played Mexican Train for 4 hours straight (I won!)

Anna and Brandon are such a great couple and we really enjoyed showing them around our neck of the woods. 


The very next day Charlotte got it's 1st snowfall of the day. (I swear I was just wearing flip flops and sipping a mimosa at an outdoor lakefront patio the afternoon before) This was our 1st snow in our new house and we think it looks just beautiful!

My cousins own Cauble Creek Vineyards in Rowan County, you should check it out sometime! I'm jealous you got to enjoy the snow, It wasn't fun driving back to Kentucky in it, after my weekend in Charlotte with family. my six hour trip took ten hours! But I loved being at my second "home" for the weekend. have a great week!

Dominoes! Awesome way to pass time. Do you guys slam it down on the table for that sound effect like we do?

I always love when you post about your outings & visits from friends. It's actually heart-warming to see host. You'd make a great mom some day *whistles*

I can't decide if I was happy that I was enjoying 70 degree weather while it was snowing in Charlotte or sad that I probably won't see snow for at least 3 years.... either way, I'm glad you had a great time with your friends! Your pictures are always beautiful.
