    my problem is that as soon as i buy new clothes, all my old ones just aren’t good enough anymore. then i constantly wear the new stuff that i like SO MUCH. then i realized i’m wearing the same thing all the time, so i have to go again. and by the time the shopping trip is over, all that stuff i was just in LOVE with isn’t good enough anymore now either! hahah vicious cycle πŸ˜‰

    I love cold roasted veggies! I bought some roasted veggies at Whole Foods last Friday, got them home, and gobbled them all up without ever heating them. YUM!!

    I think the fact that you are being picky with your clothes has a lot to do with you going on vacay with a boy…;) LOL Don’t worry, I was the same way when I took trips with cute guys!

    I just went to Asheville over Memorial Day weekend!!! My bf’s parents live there so we visited. I fell in love immediately – it’s such a cool, hippie-ish, green, granola, outdoorsy, mountain town. Try The Laughing Seed – vegetarian restaurant – and Mamacita’s – awesome fast food Mexican with really fresh and interesting ingredients! I want to go back now! E-mail me if you want some other ideas. πŸ™‚

    Um, you had me at pickeled jalapenos! I love North Carolina – when I was younger we vacationed at Nags Head for several years – jealous!!

    My daughter is the best packer – I haven’t packed for myself (or her!) for at least 5 years!

    LOVE roasted vegetables…but I’ve never thrown an apple into the mix. Don’t think the boyfriend would go for that πŸ™‚

    Have a great time! I love roasted veggies but don’t make them often enough. I am not a big packing fan either, I always pack too much or too little!

    I live about an hour and a half from Asheville. I lived there for 3 summers. It’s a really cool city, very hippie. While you’re there check our Earth Fare. There are 2 locations in Asheville. It is kind of like a southeast version of a Whole Foods. There are tons of places to go hiking or creek walking. Be prepared for cold water!

    La Paz is a local Mexican restaurant and comes highly recommended. I have yet to eat there but I hear awesome things about it. Mellow Mushroom is a hippie pizza place that is really good, the service sometimes isn’t but the pizzas are great!

    Have fun!

    Cold Roasted Veggies are the BEST! I love to roast broccoli, brussel sprouts, carrots, grape tomatoes, onions, and cauliflower and eat them cold stuffed in a baked sweet potato. HEAVEN!!!!!!!!!! (full on, clouds opening up and angels singing)
    Have fun on your trip! After traveling constantly for 2 years it only takes me 5-10 minutes to pack. There are some advantages to being forced to live out of a suitcase! πŸ™‚

    My parents moved to Asheville when I was in college and I lived there for a year after I graduated (now live in Chapel Hill getting ready to start law school in the fall πŸ™‚ ) Asheville is AMAZING!! I really cannot gush about this place enough. When my parents told me we were moving from Miami to some town with 72,000 people in the mountains, I thought they were nuts but there is just SOMETHING about Asheville. Please tell me if you need reccomendations for hikes, restaurants…anything! my boyfriend grew up in Asheville so he can help too πŸ™‚

    I highly reccomend going to the drum circle in downtown asheville on friday night. it’s what made me fall in love with the place..so many different people coming together to form this community! love it. Enjoy!!

    I love cold roasted vegetables too, especially portobello mushrooms! They taste great cold in a sandwich or salad. Good luck packing!

    I am not a huge fan of packing either. It is rather time consuming. I have this bad habit of packing way (way, way) too much. I often get laughed at for my overstuffed suitcase. When we went to my parents’ house for Christmas last year the ENTIRE car was jammed with not only clothes, etc but gifts, my craft supplies, books, workout stuff…it was nuts haha

    I hope you have an amazing family vacation!

    always love to hear with how other people deal with eating out when traveling, so can’t wait to read more during your trip. it’s the only part of traveling i don’t care for

    I loooove packing! It’s a sickness I think. I would probably hate it too though if I had to do it as often as you do.

    Your trip sounds so fun!
