Friday we visited the Biltmore which is amazing and I have picked out a stunning bedroom for myself, we followed this by a wine tour at the Biltmore and then finally a stop at a hotel for fancy drinks and a beautiful view of the mountains! We then took a short rest before going to dinner and listening to live music. Saturday we went to Whitney's favorite brunch location, which looked to me like "E-coli on a stick" (a hole in the wall restaurant) but I ate my words after we ate there! The food was excellent! Hats off to the chef on that one Whitney Garrison! We then did our version of hiking - driving up the mountains and stopping at a look out point to get pictures. This is where I surprised the family with a Jimmy Buffet Parrot Head hat that I found in Whitney's room. Right before pictures I put it on! We all had a great laugh at this! The real hikers that took our pictures didn't seem to get it and some of you might not either - we were born and raised on Jimmy Buffet music thanks to our dad! And to add to that, for those that did not know, Saturday was National Margarita day so it seemed fitting. After our hike, we did a wardrobe change and headed to downtown Asheville. We went to several shops and then did a comedy bus tour of Asheville. The comedian was excellent and our faces hurt from laughing so hard! Anyone wanting a nice place to visit should go to Asheville! It is a wonderful city! I hope to return for Whitney's graduation for another free stay at her apartment before she moves!

With March approaching we have a crazy busy schedule. All fun of course! First, Ryan will celebrate his 2nd birthday on the 6th. Jess comes in March 5-9, Whitney 9-16 and mom and dad 16-23….Although it will be nice to have company and a distraction. I also will have chemo and a CT scan to check the progress of the trial. So I will be extra anxious. Hopefully we are back on track this week and the scans reveal we are on the right track. Prayers are much appreciated!
Love to all!
