On Saturday, May 8, 2016
 Allie and Mauricio became engaged.
They will be married in July 2016 in front of their Cat Scout friends!!

Allie is my guy, Raz's sister.  Raz and I decided we wanted to do something to celebrate this
wonderful news.  We invited Allie and Mau on a secret get a way.

Raz rented a vintage car for the get away.  We picked them up bright and
early.  But we didn't tell them where we were going until we arrived...

Raz put his paw to the pedal and in no time flat we were at The Grove Park Inn
in beautiful Asheville, NC.
We had reservations in the original section of the Grove Park.
Allie and I shared a room on the 2nd floor, Raz and Mau were on the 1st floor

As soon as we arrived Allie and I decided we need to do a couples Spa Event
but the men wanted to go on a Hike!!
Needless to say we galz won.  MOL MOL

After the spa we all went back to our rooms to dress for supper.
We had reservations at The Stable Inn on the grounds of Biltmore Estates.
OMCs...what we were royally welcomed with a Roar from this fellow.

We walked around the beautiful grounds while we waited for our table to be set.
Surprise surprise we all ordered salmon....

After our delicious supper, Raz and I decided to give Allie and Mau some time alone by the fire

while we relaxed in the lounge

Our eyelids were getting very heavy sitting in the cozy lounge by the fire. We were
about the head to our rooms when we heard we could have our photo taken out on the
patio as the sun set over the Smokey Mountains

We all slept like kitties and were up bright and early for the delicious breakfast buffet at
the Grove Park Inn. Raz took this great photo of Mau and Allie enjoying their
breakfast of BACON, EGGS, BACON, oh did I mention there was BACON?

As much as we wanted to stay furever, it was time to load our the car and head home
Allie has a ton of bridal stuffs to do before her wedding.
It was a beautiful weekend and we were all happy to have the time to relax.

Mom and I thought THIS Moment was purrfect for Seeing Beautiful
with friends in the gorgeous NC Mountains

We thank Sugar, our blog hostess for letting us join her today
