DOUBLE D’S COFFEE & DESSERTS

Double D’s Coffee and Desserts is housed inside a double-decker bus that originally roamed the bustling streets of London. Since taking on a new life as a coffee shop this bright red bus keeps Asheville wanting more. Everyone can use a cup of tea or coffee throughout the day so why not get it with a little whimsy?

HOLE DONUTS

HOLE DONUTS

Asheville has manifested itself in my mind as this southern mama who feels like she has to feed me every time I visit and this time mama made donuts. Donuts have been my favorite sinful indulgence for at least 5 years now. I have become somewhat of a connoisseur and I pride myself on knowing where the “good” donuts can be found. Asheville folks, you are ridiculously lucky to have Hole Donuts!  Continue reading “HOLE DONUTS”

SHOJI SPA & LODGE

SHOJI SPA & LODGE

When Chris finally told me that my surprise was a day at the spa I almost fell through the floor. I’m marrying the most thoughtful man! As my Mimi used to say, “If I was any better, I couldn’t stand it and you couldn’t either.” He told me we would soak in a hot tub for an hour and then get a romantic couples massage. Heaven!

TACO TEMPLE

TACO TEMPLE

After I got my surprise (you’ll find out tomorrow!) I was ready to eat. We were close to The Grove Park Inn and Chris had never seen it so we decided to go have a look around. On the way, we passed Taco Temple and I knew we’d end up eating a late lunch there because it is a rare occurrence that Chris passes up tacos. Turns out this unassuming little restaurant serves up some seriously authentic cuisine. The best part? I had the most flavorful shrimp taco of my short life. Continue reading “TACO TEMPLE”

This place has themed bars, great restaurants, and it’s safe to walk everywhere… Perfect for a bachelor/bachelorette party or to celebrate your 21st birthday!

DINNER AT GOAT SOUP AND WHISKEY

DINNER AT GOAT SOUP AND WHISKEY

My Ohio bachelorette party could not have been more enjoyable! I felt like a local and definitely part of the family since I got to celebrate my upcoming nuptials and one of the last weekends of summer at Put-In-Bay. Christopher’s family did the planning so I got to feel special and enjoy myself without worrying about playing the role of cruise director. Continue reading “DINNER AT GOAT SOUP AND WHISKEY”
