Boone has my heart!

Hi strangers! Don't worry - I'm alive! I'm working the night shift the next two weeks so I'm hoping I will have more time to show up here in blogland! And today, I absolutely had to tell you guys about my weekend this past weekend!

Thursday night, one of my best friends drove up to Charlotte from Athens for a wonderful best friend weekend! She stayed the night with our friend Sam. Friday morning, we all got up early, I picked the girls up and we headed up the mountain to Boone!

Our first stop atop the mountain was King Street. We walked up and down the street, did a little shopping and then decided we needed some cheese fries from Macados. Technically, Macados is a chain (and there's even one up in North Charlotte) but to me, it's a Boone restaurant and it's the only place I'll eat it so we definitely had to stop for a snack.

After that, we went to Mast General Store to look at all the fun candy, trinkets and Sam bought herself her first pair of Chacos!

After King Street, we drove around Boone a little bit more before stopping to get beer, changing into our swimsuits and heading to Hebron Rock Colony. Somehow I had never made to Hebron so it was so much fun to do with two of my best friends - take a baby hike, scale some rocks and lay out in sun drinking a few beers! 

After soaking up the beautiful mountain air and sunshine, we headed to our favorite Mexican spot - Los - for some ACP. It was the most perfect end to a perfect Boone day. 

We headed back down the mountain to meet up with our men and go out to the bars. We headed to Montord - basically a road full of awesome bars. Our first stop was the bowling alley - they have cornhole, pink pong, Bocce ball, multiple bars, really great food (no seriously, it's weird) and of course, bowling! 

The craziest thing happened when we ordered our drinks: the four of us with NC licenses have no issues (obviously) but then Kristin hands over her GA license the bartender just keeps staring at her license for a solid minute or two before looking at her and saying "This is fake, sweetie"

I was sure one of us was going to hit her. 1) Don't you dare call her sweetie when you're the idiot. 2) She's 24 years old. 

They try to take her license because they're all convinced it's fake - uh, how is she supposed to drive back to Georgia with no license?? Nope. So we all start yelling and demanding that she get someone over here to sort this out and prove it's real. Sam even told her to call the cops so they could run her license number and give it back to her. 

The bartender hands it to the manager and he disappears for a solid 10/15 minutes. Sam finds him out in the parking lot with his iPhone out, GOOGLING what Georgia licenses look like... Needless to say she did some fit pitching and finally got them to give it back to Kristin - but not before they wanted to check her debit cards to make sure her name matched her license... It was crazy. 

Saturday, Sam's sister had her graduation party so as Sam went over to help set up, her husband, Kristin, Christian and I laid by the pool for a few hours before heading to the party. We had such a fun day eating delicious food, drinking great summer beer and hanging out with her awesome family! 

To end the perfect best friend's weekend, we headed back to my pool for a night swim and a dip in the hot tub! 

There were a lot of selfies this weekend.
