Mid-Week Weekend-- Part 1

Last May, I got a great deal from Living Social-- 2 nights at a B&B in Virginia Wine Country for Austin and me to take advantage of wine and beer tasting in the area.  Austin and I were so excited to use it before I started my job last September.  Time got away from us, so we decided to use it during spring break (and before it expired!).  The deal was only good Sunday-Thursday nights, so we had a wonderful mid-week weekend.

Our destination was Nelson County, VA and the Mark-Addy Inn.  We didn't pass one stop light during our mini-vacation and not a chain restaurant or fast-food restaurant in sight.  Weather was beautiful, if you don't count the wind :)

The inn was super cute with each of the rooms having different decor.  Ours was Rue de Monet, and as one could guess, Monet prints were everywhere.  It was bright and cheery-- the epitome of what I think of as a room in a B&B.

Highlighting our time at the B&B was of course the food!  Breakfast the two mornings there was delicious.  The first day was a breakfast quiche and fruit oatmeal.  Day two's breakfast is below in picture form:

Yummy fruit cup with homemade whipped cream. 

Eggs Benedict and homemade breakfast potato chips. 

Every part of our trip was amazing....stay tuned for Parts 2 and 3 of our mid-week weekend-- Food in Nelson Country and Red, White, and Brew (Wine on Highway 151).

  1. I like how you made potato chips breakfast appropriate by categorizing them as "breakfast potato chips." I think when it comes to potato chips it's wise not to discriminate by time of day. Those looked yummy!
