The House On the Rock

These are some pictures I took on my visit to the House on the Rock in Spring Green, WI back in October.  It's a very interesting place to visit.  There are 3 buildings that have various collections.  This will most likely take 4-5 hours to tour all 3 buildings.  It's fascinating. Wear comfortable shoes because you will be walking a lot.

The house was built on top of Deer Shelter Rock. 

Cost: $28.50 for adults

Trip down south

I went on a road trip to Georgia in November. It was a 12 hour drive from Wisconsin. My hubby and I drove through Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Georgia.  On our way back, we stopped in North Carolina for a few days and drove back home through NC, TN, KY, OH, IN, IL, and WI.  So many thanks for my hubby's cousin Myndi and her hubby Vam Tsav for hosting us while we were in Georgia! 


My friend Nicki took me to this awesome vietnamese bakery called VN Tofu in Norcross, GA.  It has the most selection of vietnamese bakery goods I have ever seen in my entire life! 


This is a picture of my hubby's cousin Myndi, my friend Nicki and I. It was taken at the Hindi temple in the Atlanta suburbs.  This place is gorgeous! 


Hindi temple. Beautiful and majestic place. 


My friend Nicki and I at an indian buffet.  Nicki is a sweetheart!  We met on Twitter and became friends.  This was the first time I had met her in person.  It's so wonderful knowing that we can talk as if we'd known each other our entire lives.  She's super cool and I enjoyed hanging out with her!  This place had the best pineapple juice/drink from a fountain I have ever tasted in my life. It was so refreshing and good that I kept going back for more.


Me, Myndi, and Nicki at the indian buffet.  I was hungry I forgot to take a picture of my plate.  


My good friend Molly and I in Winder, GA. We've known each other over 20 years.  I surprised her on her birthday! This was the first time in nearly 20 years since we last saw each other in Fresno. She's a sweetheart and a caring friend. 


Some yummy food my hubby and I made at Myndi and her hubby's house in Winder, GA.  Hubby made the fish dish. I made the blue crab. Myndi made the pork and greens.

Biltmore Mansion in Ashville, NC.  You should see it at least once in your life.  It's about a $50 fee per person and you get access to the mansion, winery (free wine tasting), gardens, and trails.  If you do plan to go, I suggest going early so that you can have enough time to view everything.  I went on a self guided tour but you can also pay for a guided tour which gives you access to more rooms in the mansion.  I went at my own pace and it took about 1.5 hours to walk through the entire house.  The views of the mountain are breathtaking. Gorgeous views...  You can take pictures everywhere except inside the mansion.  There's lockers nearby so you can place your items before you enter the mansion. Make sure to bring quarters for the lockers!
