I remembered just how delicious these bran muffins were from our last trip, so I definitely had to try one.

After breakfast we headed over to the North Carolina Museum of Art.

I snapped a picture of the Iris Restaurant in the museum. It wasn't open yet.

We stopped by a few shops after the museum, before heading back to the Fearrington for lunch @ The Goat.

After our pedicures we relaxed a little while longer giving our toes time to dry before walking over to The Fearrington House Restaurant for afternoon tea.

There were several wedding taking place both on Friday & Saturday so there were lots of cheering and bridesmaids running around the village.

The lovely arrangement was in one of the relaxing areas.

After tea we headed over the main desk to check out a few of the movies they had, and headed back up to the room after quite an eventful day…

Around 7:30 we ordered up some room service… and relaxed the rest of the evening away in the most comfy beds ever. I really need a mattress like that at home… and the same size bedroom would be beyond amazing… just saying!

    It’s hard to believe that flower is real. It’s so beautiful!
