Grandover Resort and Girl's Night

Last night I had another girl's night with some ladies I don't know as well.  Well you see, I know Lizzy from our building (she also dates a Kevin) and I know Molly through Lizzy.  The three of us have hung out numerous times but I didn't know their friends.  They invited me to their "book club" that they have with their girls from college at Queens University in Charlotte.

At first I was a bit aprehensive about BOOK club because I don't read books.  I can read blogs and Coastal Living with the best of them though!  ;)

They promised they hardly even talk about the book so I went.  Seriously yall, I had the best time.  It was SO fun meeting some new girls.  They were all so sweet and welcoming!  Three of them turned out to be Chi O's which was so fun to talk to them about!  We just went on and on about life while everyone drank wine and had snacks.  I could have talked to them forever!  Anyway, I'm looking forward to the next book club in February!  :)

On Kevin's and my way back to Charlotte on Sunday (from Raleigh) we were so tired, we could hardly keep our eyes open.  I've always wanted to stop at the Grandover Resort in Greensboro and Kevin kept raving about how nice it was.  So we did!   
We sat over in the chairs beside the fireplace for about 20 minutes and I took a few minute snooze.  How warm and cozy is that?!

The lobby was so pretty!

I lvoed this bamboo plant.  If you look closely you can see that it is all intertwined together.  Very cool!

What is your favorite fancy schmancy hotel or resort (whether you've stayed there or not)?  I'd have to say mine is either the Peabody in Memphis (we went to Cristin's wedding there in May 2009!) or the Waldorf in NYC.


  1. I went to Blackberry Farm this summer in TN and loved it..I also love a great B&B: Blueberry Hill Inn in Vermont.

  2. One of my favorite hotels in this region is the Grove Park Inn. Their spa is awesome! I love the fireplaces and food.. the whole thing.
    As far as other places I've stayed -- my favorite all time is the Resort at Squaw Creek up on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe.

    I stayed there in the summer and LOVED It! It would be even better in the winter though!
    Super expensive but worth it!

  3. Have you been to Pinehurst? That is where we were married (well, where we had the reception). I have been going there since I was a little girl, so it holds a few special places in my heart :)

  4. I just joined a book club too! I actually am reading the book, but I don't enjoy discussing and analyzing them though. I was promised as well that they only talk about the book for 5 minutes. My first meeting is Monday! I hope I have as much luck as you!

    The only resort I have been to was in Cancun for my honeymoon. Moon Palace.. LOVED it. I'll be going to River Street Inn in Savannah in March for a bachelorette party. It looks great from the website and I've heard it's pretty awesome, so I'm looking forward to it!

  5. I loved the Grove Park when I stayed there a couple years ago. That's cool you stopped there~ I've always wanted to!
    Yay for joining a book club. I love the girls in mine. Now let's get you reading!! :-P

  6. Book Club sounds so fun! I love the Ritz Carlton at Amelia Island. Very pretty - stayed there for my 21st birthday.
