Our morning drive and a GIVEAWAY WINNER!

We drove to Biltmore Village to our favorite bakery… Brueggers Bagels to get a baker’s dozen this morning (I chose blueberry and hubby picked sesame) so I thought I would post some photos I took from the window of our car!

The clouds looked amazing!


The Smokey Mountains were smokin’!


Did you see the ‘happy face’ when we sped by?


And do we have time to stop here?


(we didn’t…but I had to ask! heehee)


Are those bicycles exceeding the speed limit?




Was that a trolley?


Are we going to stop at Mr. Hot Dog and Mrs. Ice Cream? (I’m starting to sound like a child…a spoiled one at that! heeehee)


Back home…time for a cup of coffee and a fresh blueberry bagel! I only want half…do you want to share?

Please join me in congratulating the winner of My Memories Scrapbook software!

The WINNER is…

Jen at Muddy Boot Dreams!

I’m so happy for you! Enjoy your weekend!

Has your day been eventful, too?

Hi Diane,
Congrats to Jen on winning your giveaway!
What a wonderful way to start your day!! Seeing those Smokey Mountains makes me miss the part of my family that lives down there...and I'm sure when I listen very closely those mountains are calling my name.
That antique store sure looks like it would be an awesome place to shop.
Have a great day! I'm heading out in a little while to check out a craft show.

Nooo, very quiet compared to yours. I'd love half of your blueberry bagel, but then I'd have to hit you with it to get your half. Ha!

Terra said...

Half of your blueberry bagel sounds delightful, and I like the photos of what you saw on your drive.

Annalisa said...

Hi Diane! OH, this looks like a wonderful drive to get some goodies! I'd love half of your blueberry bagel but I think by looking up at the comments - it's already gone! :)
Be a sweetie,

Hello name mate! Anything that had clouds, greenery amazes me all the time. I would want to see that place and enjoy the bread too.

Lynn @The Vintage Nest said...

those clouds look like the same ones we have might storm and it might not! :) Loved the ride along and I think I might have whined a little more so I could stop in on that charming antique store.....okay...I would have whined a whole LOT....:)
