Asheville, NC

A few weeks ago Matt and I went on our first Summer 2017 trip to North Carolina! We were headed to Asheville for a Farmers Incentive Trip but we made a pit stop in Charlotte.... Matt's old stomping grounds!

Matt played baseball at UNC Charlotte and we were able to tour his college and meet his old teammates for dinner! We walked down onto the field and I was glad to be able to share that with Matt.
When we were on the field I found two used baseballs under the dugout bench and I was so excited to bring those dirty balls (ha, dirty balls) home as a souvenir! There is always a method to my madness I swear!
After 2 days in Charlotte we headed to Ashville and the famous Omni Grove Park Inn!
This place reminds me of The Broadmoor here Colorado Springs, a true resort with shopping, restaurants and an amazing spa! I just loved walking around the grounds and taking in it and relaxing. Our room was right outside the 9th hole of the golf course which Matt loved
Something I was so surprised about was the food, with Farmers we had a buffet breakfast and lunch each day provided in a ballroom and 2 seated dinners and the food was AMAZING! Normally hotel buffet food isn't anything to write home about but this was so good. Also the staff was incredible, so warm and friendly it was a lovely stay!
One morning we got a map from the Omni and took a 3 mile walk around the resort to see the historic homes and scenery and it was very enjoyable even if it was slightly up hill the whole way! LOL!
The first night we had a Southern themed dinner with Oysters my fav and it was a fun night! Farmers brought in a. musical guest and it was nice to catch up with friends was Oklahoma who were also there!
To make this trip Matt is a part of the TOP 10% of the company and I am so proud of him for his 5th year to qualify! Get this next year is a BIG year at Farmers and they have RENTED out Disneyland completely for US if we qualify. I mean the entire park for just our group and EVERYTHING inside the park will be free and open for us! Gosh I hope we qualify!!!!!!
One night we had open dinner and we took one of Matt's agents who qualified to dinner with his wife to a yummy place in Asheville. The Bull and Beggar and I highly recommend this! Check it out HERE
One day Matt had workshops so I spent the day the spa and it was literally the best thing EVER! You guys this is the spa set into the side of this hill with salt pools hot tubs and so so much more! I spent the whole day here just relaxing! Take me back
The last night was the fancy Awards Banquet and I thought when in the "South" I would dress the part in a full gingham dress! LOL! And yes, those earrings hurt all night!
Dinner was so good as was the oldies cover band they had playing! Just look at our fun dessert! Thank you Farmers Insurance for another great week! I can't wait for Seattle next month!
Want to shop my looks from my trip, here you go............

Congrats to Matt for achieving top 10% again, I know that takes a lot of hard work and sacrafice for both of y'all. I immediately thought of your coffee table or bowl thing that you had baseballs in (when you mentioned finding those dirty ones...you can add to the collection).

I am sure Matt had a great time showing you his old stomping grounds as much as it was to remember memories of his time there.

Love the dresses, that long Gingham was too cute! The office white dress, purse, and those blue earrings so pretty...I tell ya, you need to be a catalog model!!! Perfect photo for your portfolio! :)
