These are few of my favorite things...

...that I was able to enjoy with Jim when he came for a visit. (It was soooo nice to be able to show off Asheville to someone from back home). And I always say it's the little things in life. Well, here are a few little things that all added up for one super fun week:

Early afternoon Guinness and slice of heavenly chocolate mocha cheesecake, eaten in a high top bistro set, overlooking downtown Asheville.

This, my friends, is what a person who just ate what they claim to be "the best bacon tehy ever had" looks like. (At Tupalo Honey Restaurant in the center of the city)

And *this* is the famous bacon:

Jim taught me how to play Vegas style solitaire and I am hooked. I brought a deck of cards everywhere we went...even to Shake it Like a Caveman (blog entry about that to follow in the very near future)
We did a whole lot of antiquing and yard saling. With the green grass and sunny weather around here, Saturdays make for some great lawn bargains. This was one of my favorite finds--a vintage chandelier, that I am currently refinishing a retro cool blue color, with handing beads for my little shoppe on Squam.
This is what two people look like after full body massages (who also happen to be wearing pretty much the same hat). The Asheville School of Massage and Yoga has a program for the community where the soon-to-graduate students offer grrrreeeeeatttt massages at a super low cost. They fill up quick, so when I found out they had a couple of openings, I jumped at that opportunity. Ahhh... Oh. And I finally had an excuse to go to the Hot Dog King. There is no good reason for me to venture in there myself. Isn't this old sign just great?
But really, I think Asheville is pretty great. And next, Horseshoe is coming to visit, followed by Tina and Tanya! Fun!

Oh man, thanks so much for showing me around the city while I was there. Asheville is a ridiculously cool place, and I know I've said it before, but I had SUCH a good time. :)

Also: I will pay good money if you'll mail me some more of that bacon.
