Our Trip to Old Edwards Inn

I’m so excited to be writing about our getaway to Old Edwards Inn in Highlands, NC. I plan to start sharing more of our travels in 2020 so that I can look back on our trips & hopefully share some helpful info with you!

I have always wanted to visit Old Edwards Inn! We tend to book things last minute, and this trip was no exception. We tried to book it for New Years Eve, but it was full, so we checked in on 1/1/2020 to start off the new decade! We checked in at The Lodge after a 3.5 hour drive from Charlotte, NC. We were a little early for check in, but the VERY helpful and informative staff at Old Edwards Inn pointed us towards The Ugly Dog Pub for appetizers and a drink while we waited on our room.

We took their advice and headed to The Ugly Dog which is only steps away from The Lodge! This is one of the best parts about Old Edwards Inn. It is located in downtown Highlands, so everything is extremely walkable! Brenton and I were fully expecting a hole-in-the-wall “grunge” pub feel. We were happily surprised when we walked in to see an adorable and lively restaurant/bar! I got wine, Brenton got a local beer, and we split fried green tomatoes and the pesto flatbread to hold us over until our 9 pm dinner reservations.

We were able to check in (yay!) and Allistar from the front desk, who was so helpful during our entire stay, escorted us to our cottage. We were delighted to find that our cottage was located directly across from The Lodge, aka the center of the grounds! Our “room” consisted of a cute entryway, a sitting room complete with a fireplace and bar, a full patio, master bedroom, and a bathroom with heated floors. I am very picky about hotel rooms, and I was shocked at how nice and spacious everything was! In my head I was expecting something similar to The Grove Park Inn, which I love, but those rooms are very dated and small in comparison to Old Edwards Inn. Our exact room was one of the Laurel Lodge Cottages- number 602.

Since we had several hours before our dinner reservation, we decided to explore and hit up one of the two hot tubs on site. The hot tub was tucked away to the side of the pool area to where we didn’t even see it at first! The pool and surrounding area is stunning and we will definitely be returning in the warmer months just for that.

We had 9 pm dinner reservations at Madison’s Restaurant that night. Madison’s is a part of Old Edwards Inn, so it is a short walk to Main Street and the restaurant is beautiful! Since we were so last minute, we were happy to be able to get a late reservation here through our American Express agent. I would definitely recommend booking ahead for this restaurant! The food was good, but the service was exceptional. Overall we had a great night here!

The best part of Old Edward’s is how relaxing and peaceful it is. We slept in until around 9 am, and made our way back to Madison’s for a nice breakfast. You don’t have to worry about making breakfast reservations here because it is only open to hotel guests during morning hours! The breakfast was delicious and the restaurant is so pretty that we enjoyed sitting in this spot with our coffees for a good while. We stopped in the Hummingbird Lounge, which is above Madison’s and beside the spa, to peek around after breakfast! It is a gorgeous great room where they serve cocktails and light fare in the afternoon.

We walked around cute downtown Highlands and went back to relax when the rain started to get heavy. The accommodations and lodge are so nice that the rain didn’t bother us at all. There are lots of outdoor activities you can do at Old Edwards Inn & Spa when the weather is nice listed here.

We wanted a casual and easy lunch, so we went to Highlands Deli which is connected to SweeTreats on Main Street. They have good sandwiches if you want something fast! I can’t speak for the ice cream, but it looked delicious!

I originally planned to get a massage during the day, but because I was last minute, they didn’t have a female provider (which I generally prefer) so I decided to just continue relaxing with Brenton. We spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying fireside cocktails and cards at Art’s at The Lodge and playing games of chess and checkers in the Game Room downstairs. Mark, the bartender at Art’s, was so friendly and helpful during our stay.

We went to Wild Thymes for dinner on our last night. This ended up being our favorite meal of the trip! The cocktails were perfect and the food was delish. I had *two* blueberry mojitos (my favorite drink- IF the bartender knows how to muddle!!) and we ordered the lump crab fillo appetizer, the onion crusted salmon, chicken parm, and coconut cake for dessert. We really enjoyed the more relaxed atmosphere! It was packed, so I would recommend a reservation. It is located right on Main Street, so it is walking distance just like everything else!

After dinner, we went back to The Lodge for more fireside cards and champagne. We were sad to check out the next morning, but agreed that two nights at Old Edwards was the perfect amount of time and we will definitely be back!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! I absolutely love finding the perfect gifts for family and friends. I plan to share several different gift guides leading up to Christmas, starting with this general gift guide for women- all under $100! I own most of these items and try to give detail on quality and fit.

You do NOT have to spend a lot of money on a flannel top! I have 3 total from this retailer and they are high quality, great fit, and the cutest patterns. Great gift for anyone on your list (or yourself)! True to size.

I am beyond impressed with the quality of this vest. It’s warm, a great fit, and comes in a nice range of colors. True to size (I am in a small). Great gift for moms, mother in laws, daughters, sisters, or babysitters! If you need a vest for yourself too, you will not find a better deal than this one.

Sherpa Crewneck Sweatshirt | Currently on sale for $29 and comes in several colors. Everyone is flipping out over sherpa EVERYTHING for good reason! It is cozy, cute, and instantly makes your outfit more festive and winter-y! I have several to share, including this fun one from The Gap. I do not own this, but saw it in person at The Gap and want it. This would be a great sister or mother in law gift!

Colorblock Sherpa Quarter-Zip Pullover Sweatshirt

ColdControl Lightweight Puffer Jacket | Currently on sale for $60. I have this and am in love with it! It is lightweight, but kept me warm on my mountain weekend where temperatures dropped to the low 20’s. I sometimes feel like a jacket covers up my cute outfits, but not with this one! It is a stand out piece for sure. I would suggest gifting this to your daughter, niece, or friend! I wore a size small- stick to your true size! I was able to wear a thick sweater underneath.

ColdControl Lightweight Metallic Puffer Jacket

Blouson Sleeve Tee | $49. I have this in the tie dye color way (comes in several colors) and am so impressed with the quality and fit. It is a fun dressed up version of a tee shirt- I would even call it a top instead! I felt so good in it all night. Get this for your mom, friend, or daughter! They will be happy to add this fun top to their closet. True to size & a super easy fit, so you don’t have to worry if it will work for your loved one or not!

They are true to size and a great gift for anyone on your list.

ZELLA Live In High Waist Leggings, Main, color, BLACK

Marc Jacobs Daisy Perfume | $70-$90 depending on size. I received this as a gift last Christmas, and have enjoyed it more than any other perfume I’ve owned. If you are a fan of Chance by Chanel perfume, you will love this one!! That used to be my go-to before I started using Daisy. This is a nice gift for any of the ladies in your life if you are looking to spend a little bit more. I know that scent is very personal, so if you like a romantic and feminine scent- I think you will like this!

I think these would be a great gift for friends, babysitters, daughters, daughter in laws- anyone really! I feel like the quality and design on these are similar to $200+ sunglasses.

QUAY AUSTRALIA x JLO All in 56mm Aviator Sunglasses, Main, color, CLEAR/ BROWN FLASH

Classic Slip-On Vans Sneaker | $49. This one might seem super basic, but I think they would be a great gift for pretty much anyone on your list! I own these and find myself reaching for them several times a week, more so than my more expensive sneakers or boots. They come in several solid colors if you are not in love with the original black and white checkered pattern. These are true to size and have lasted several seasons for me!

VANS Classic Slip-On Sneaker, Main, color, BLACK WHITE CHECKER

Turtleneck Sherpa Pullover | On sale for $15!! I ordered this and LOVE it. There is nothing better than a cozy shirt to wear around the house or take the dog out. I absolutely love this and am amazed by the quality for the price. Take advantage of this one while you can. This is great for friends who you usually don’t spend a ton on, secret Santa gifts, moms, sisters! Size up one size for an oversized, cozy fit.

Fine- Knit Sweater | $19. I wore this tonight over the flannel I mentioned at the beginning of this post. Such a simple look, but so put together. I got several comments and questions about it! I have this in black, and my sister has it in the brown. I am ordering another color because the fit and quality are so good, and I love the *very* slight V Neck.. perfect for layering! This looks like a designer sweater. True to size. Good for anyone on your list!

House Hunt Update

Sweater / Leggings / Sneakers
This is from outside of a house we viewed and liked yesterday! But, it did not have the best yard for Val!

Hiiiii!!! Thank you all so much for the love and support on our moving news. I wanted to give y’all a little update with where we are now with our move and house hunt. I shared a little bit about how easy our movers made the process for us, and how they packed and unpacked EVERYTHING into our rental… we didn’t even have to unpack one box. The whole move itself was so smooth, and since then, apartment life has been just as seamless.

We have truly enjoyed our two bedroom, two bath rental. I have definitely learned that I can live with A LOT less… For example, we do not feel crowded or stressed at all downsizing from 3,000 square feet to a 1,200 square foot apartment. We have realized that our next house needs to be somewhere in the middle!

I also thought that we would really miss our old house location. We lived in the Dilworth neighborhood of Charlotte, which is a fun neighborhood close to Southend and Uptown Charlotte. I thought we would miss walking places, but it turns out that we walk to way more restaurants and do so much more where we are currently renting. So, we have expanded our house hunt location!

Lastly, we were so afraid that Valentine (our giant Newfoundland dog) would be crammed in an apartment and not get enough playtime or energy out. It has been the total opposite! Valentine has made so many friends in the dog park and gets way more playtime and walks than ever before. It has been so good for him to socialize with other dogs outside of the pups he grew up with at his daycare! Valentine loves apartment life. BUT… A nice, big yard for Valentine is still on the top of our house hunt list ;)

For all of these reasons, we slowed down our house hunt… actually we pretty much never *seriously* started! We were instantly comfortable and happy here. I think it is partly because we never lived apartment life, and went straight to living in our previous house that came with a lot of responsibility and upkeep. BUT, we do not want to stay here forever (and can’t! we didn’t sign a year lease!) so recently we have been on the hunt again.

I will update you all on here with our house hunt progress- and don’t forget to keep up with me on Instagram stories! I will try to post stories when we look at houses. Love you all, and thanks for taking the time to read my blog posts!

We Sold Our House!

Hiiii guys!!! I have missed the blog! I am so excited to be giving you a little life update! Here is the story of how we sold our house and what’s next for us.

Photos by Demi Mabry Photography

You probably already know this from Instagram but…. WE SOLD OUR HOUSE!! It has been a crazy last few weeks. Brenton and I have been talking about listing our house for the past 6+ months and finally decided to just do it. We worked SO hard to get our home list ready. I told Brenton if we were listing it, we were doing it right!

So, we had a painter come and touch up every spot on the wall that was covered in Valentine’s slobber (Newfie owners feel me on this, haha). We had our backyard spruced up with new plants. We had the house cleaned and cleaned and cleaned…. We had a stager come and put furniture on our fourth floor that we never used (it was totally empty… too much house for us)! We cleaned out and organized every single closet and every drawer so that everything looked perfect. Our two car garage went from looking like an overpacked storage unit to completely empty. Throughout this entire process, Valentine stayed at his “camp” (that he LOVES) so that nothing would get dirty or out of place. I’m a little bit of a perfectionist, haha.

Finally, it was time to take photos and list the house! We lucked out with an amazing home photographer. We took the photos on a Thursday, and listed the following Saturday evening when we got the photos back. We had our first and ONLY showing first thing the next morning…. and a full price offer was sent to us early that afternoon. With a 30 day close. WOW!! That happened fast. We were overjoyed! Of course, we accepted. Shoutout to my mom, who happens to be our realtor and listing agent, for getting us a full price offer in under 24 hours. (I linked her Facebook business page, or you can reach her at jdryejewell@gmail.com if you are interested.) People thought we were crazy for our list price, but I’m so glad we trusted her and went for it.

After accepting the offer, we immediately started looking at our next steps. We knew we had to get a rental, because our plan is to renovate a ranch a little farther out of the city with a big yard for Valentine. Once we signed the lease on our rental, we got another offer from the buyers. They wanted to buy a good amount of our furniture, art, and rugs. Shoutout to Maggie of Crandall Haus for making it look so good! We let them know how much we would take for the items and they accepted. Now, we had to find a temporary sofa! Haha. This all just seems so crazy typing it out. Our friends were selling a brand new Pottery Barn sofa, so we lucked out with that. Thanks Tanne & Karrah!

Next came the big move. All I can say is thank goodness for Honeycutt movers. They packed our WHOLE house up last Thursday, moved half of it to storage and half to our rental on Friday, and unpacked every box in our rental for us on Saturday. To top it all off, they came back this week to hang curtains and art for us. They are such hard workers, so reasonable, and so GOOD at what they do. I cannot believe I found them from a Nextdoor post. Charlotte people, if you are moving, call Honeycutt. This is NOT an ad. Brenton can tell you… we paid for it, haha.

So, we are all caught up! We closed on our house today, and are continuing our house hunt for the perfect ranch! We are so thankful for how smooth this process was and for all of the people who made it that way. I cannot wait to take you on the journey of our house hunt and future renovation! We took these photos with Demi Mabry Photography so that we could remember our first home together, where we brought Valentine home, and where we came home as a married couple. So many good times in this house. Feeling overwhelmingly thankful today. Cheers to the good times ahead!

Valentine’s Day Gifts!!

The time is here!!! Valentine’s Day!!!! I just love this holiday so much. Brenton and I don’t do huge & crazy Valentine’s Day gifts. For us, it’s all about spending time together with a few little gifts & ALWAYS homemade pasta and red wine! Oh and I do like really nice flowers ;) lol. So I thought I would share some ideas for small Valentine’s Day gifts!! These are GREAT for your wife, girlfriend, moms, sisters, cousins, work friends…. anyone!!! Ladies, Galentine’s Day is real too!! And guys, take notes!!

Patchology FlashPatch Eye Masks / $14. These eye masks are all the rage!!! My favorite esthetician, Jocelyn from Infinity Medspa (Hi Jocelyn!!!), recommended these to me. Charlotte locals, you can buy these at Infinity Medspa!! This set comes with four of the eye masks and they make a great gift for the ladies in your life. Brides- these are great gifts for your bridesmaids for wedding weekend!!

Drake Heart Eyes/Crying iPhone Case / $26. I am so obsessed with this Etsy shop!! I have ordered so much wedding gear from them including this FEYONCE sweatshirt and this WIFEY cropped hoodie. Everything in this shop would be PERFECT for Valentine’s Day. But back to this case- HOW FUN for V Day?! Obsessed with it and it comes in all iPhone sizes. I have a 15% off code for the whole shop!!! “PSOLIVIA”

Tassel Earrings / $16. Of course I had to include my favorite tassel earrings!!! You can choose from 54 different colors, & the customer service/shipping is so fast and amazing. I have them in color #2 & #28. LOVE! Also gave them to my bridesmaids as little bachelorette gifts.

Custom Dog Breed Stemless Wine Glass / $10. This might be the best one on here- lol!! My sister got this custom Newfie wine glass for me last year and I love it soooo much!! This is the perfect gift for any dog mom (or dad). They can seriously do ANY breed! Here is a picture of mine.

BOMBAS Ankle Socks / $12. Ok, I know this looks dumb. Socks for Valentine’s Day?! Lol. But these are the BEST SOCKS EVER! Trust me. I got my sister hooked too. They would be a great gift paired with one of the other items on this post!!

Colorblock Ankle Socks,
                        Main,
                        color, PINK/ AQUA

Z By Zella High Waist Pocket Legging / $28. Leggings are ALWAYS a great gift idea!! I ordered these a couple of weeks ago and I love them! I’m a die hard for the OG $60 Zella leggings, but these come pretty darn close and the price cannot be beat!

Bliss Plush Throw / $29. Y’all are probably sick of hearing me talk about these for the last year and a half. But sorry I’m not going to stop-lol! I love them so much!! They are the BEST gifts.

They would even be cute for bridesmaids gifts if your bachelorette weekend falls near Valentine’s Day. Here is the long sleeve/pant version ($59).

ASOS Spring Vacation Picks!

Oh my goodness y’all. I keep finding myself browsing the new resort pieces hitting every retailer. I have spring vacations & honeymoon weather on the brain! I figured some of y’all might be in the same boat, SO I’m sharing my favorite resort wear picks from ASOS. You know what that means… they are all SUPER affordable!!! If you like something- go ahead and order it! Sizes sell out really fast at ASOS. Here we go!

Stripe Beach Caftan / $34. This caftan is so gorgeous and easy to throw on for any beach vacay! It reminds me of this $250 Lem Lem caftan.

Pom Sandal Espadrilles / $35. OMG!!! how ADORABLE are these!!! You know I already checked out with these in my cart… these babies are going to be perfect all spring with jeans rolled up & a black long sleeve, AND all summer. Love love love. Can’t beat the price either.


Ombre Tie-Dye Beach Coverup / $45. I love this soooo much!! Throw it over your bathing suit for sunset cocktails or a day exploring while on vacation. It’s so fun and I haven’t seen anything else like it! You are bound to get tons of compliments on this fun coverup.

Low Back Bright Floral One Piece / $56. Not only do I love the fun colors of this printed one piece, but I LOVE the low back & high neck combo!!! I feel like this would be super flattering.

Split Front Beach Pants / $35. I LOVE THESE!!! Omg. I will style them exactly like the pic- with a bikini top and necklace!!! But they would also be cute with a beachy pullover like this.

Beachy Striped Two Piece Set / $72. This one is a little pricier, but it comes with two pieces and is so pretty for a beach vacation- I had to share!! You could wear together of course, or you could pair the skirt with a knotted white t-shirt (I’ve been loving these $10 broken-in tees), and you can pair the top with high waisted flare jeans for a fun 70’s look!

Studded Closed-Toe Espadrilles / $29. Another pair of adorable espadrilles… I couldn’t choose between the two so I decided to share both! These are great because they can be worn in the chillier spring weather as well as those hot summer days. These are neutral but FUN and can go with anything! Really love these! These go up to size 11.

Let me know your thoughts on these vacation picks and what you would like to see more of!! Xoxo, Olivia
