Girls Weekend in NC!

Just got home from an awesome weekend in North Carolina with my friend Jodi.  I’ve been feeling a little behind on my posting, because I have been away.  So I thought I would share a little bit of my trip!

Thursday night, after hours of flight delays and during what was (hopefully) the last snow storm of the season,  Jodi and I were finally off to NC for the weekend.  We were thrilled to be leaving the snowy weather behind us!

Jodi happy we are leaving New England during a snow storm!

Our weekend was filled with lots of shopping (maybe a bit too much!), two trips to Maggie Moo’s (the best ice cream ever!), a visit to Duke University, and of course a little bit of sunbathing!  We had a wonderful time!


Jodi and I at the Duke Gardens!

My favorite part of the trip was visiting Duke University’s Sarah P. Duke Gardens. This gorgeous 55 acre public garden is a must see if you are ever in the Raleigh-Durham area.  We spent hours just walking around the 5 miles of walks and pathways, and of course we took tons of pictures!


I'll take these over snow any day!

Enjoying every minute in this beautiful place!

Love all the flowers in bloom!

Best seat in the house! Lunch time w/ Duke's Chapel in the background.

And of course no blog post is complete with out some gluten free goodness! 🙂  On our vacation Jo introduced me to P.F. Chang’s!  I was surprised by the size of their gluten free menu.  They offer 29 gluten free items including: starters, entrees, vegetarian options, and dessert.  The best part is…they modify their most popular menu items to be gluten free using their very own versions of gluten free sauces and marinades!  Another thing I found out is that they only serve gluten free food on round plates.  Non-gluten free food is served on square and rectangular plates, this is something good to look out for.

Everything on the P.F.Chang’s menu looked really good!  I ended up ordering the gluten free egg drop soup, and the highly recommended (by Jodi) gluten free chicken lettuce wraps. Lets just say I was not disappointed, and I can’t wait to go back!
