Last-Minute Getaway!

On Thursday, I got an email from Travelzoo offering a one-night stay at Greenville's Inn, including a three-course dinner for two and breakfast the following morning. For how much?! $89!! Sign me UP!

Since Matt went to Furman, we spent a lot of time in Greenville when we were in college, but hadn't really been back just the two of us in a long time. So I forwarded him the email, and that night at dinner, we decided to purchase the deal.

The next obvious decision was, when should we go? We had until February 2012. So when Matt asked me when I would like to use it, he laughed when I said, "How about tomorrow?!"

Him: "Tomorrow?! Okay! haha, would you really like to?!"

Me: "If you do! Why not?!"

And THAT is where our last-minute adventure began.

We called and booked their last available room with a king-size bed and packed for the next day. Matt picked me up from school on Friday and we took off! SO FUN!

We made one stop for Arby's mozzarella sticks (LOVE!) and a Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich (funny how driving even 2.5 hours makes a 4-meal day feel completely necessary), and made it to the Inn by 5:15. JUST in time to hit up the 50-and-over halloween costume party at the pub. ha! It was awesome.

I tried to sneak a picture of this random couple because they totally reminded me of my parents- venturing out to the dance floor despite the fact that no one else was out there. . . totally a Mom and Charles thing to do! Very cute.

The tables were all decorated with little candies- which brought up the question: 
"What's your favorite hard candy?" 
Matt's answer (without hesitation): "Watermelon Jolly Rancher." 
Me: "HA! Seriously?! Who knew?!"
Matt: "What's yours?"
Me: "Strawberry candy with the juice inside."
Matt: "Interesting. Good to know."

haha. . . guess we're not done getting to know each other after high school, college, and four years of marriage. :)


On the path to the Bell Tower, we found Tanner's name on one of the bricks! Tanner was in our wedding- too funny. Way to leave your mark, Tanner. :)

What fun. Glad we decided to be spontaneous!


  1. Aww, this post is awesome! What a fun last minute adventure! It looks like you had a beautiful time and I'm jealous of your weather and warm clothes! It also made me laugh because I don't know what my husband's favorite hard candy is -- after 10 years of dating and 2 of marriage! (I asked. He doesn't have one. Haha.)

  2. So glad y'all got the chance to get away! Looks like it was a fun, relaxing weekend!

  3. Sounds like a fun trip! It's so fun to learn new things about your spouse. :)

  4. Looks like you had a great time!!! Please check out this post. I left you a surprise!
