Fun pics

So.. I just got the car I have been wishing for, for about a 6 months!!  It is a beautiful 2010 gunmetal grey 4 Runner, with heated seats and a sunroof!!  I also has an automatic starter and a bluetooth handsfree phone in it, what more could a girl ask for?!? 

My mother-in-law came to visit just in time to pick it up with me :).  This was her first visit as my official mother-in-law, so we decided to celebrate.  On Saturday we took her to a Hokie game (one of our favorite past times).  The pregame show was great with a big plane flying over and the stadium full of Hokies!

After the game we headed up to Asheville, NC to visit the Biltmore, a beautiful mansion built in the late 1800's. Sean and I have been there just after we started dating 3 years ago, so we were excited to go back. The 4Runner (Kathryn after Kathyrn Hepburn) drove great, the trip which was 3 hours felt like nothing.

 The spiral stairscase, all the support is provided by the outside wall.  There are no supporting pillars in the stairwell. 

And the gardens were BEAUTIFUL!!!

If you ever get a chance to go to Asheville definitely visit the Biltmore, it's worth it!!  More adventures to come :)
