BCL Vacation [Part Two]: My Fav Christmas Store, Mexican Food, Candy Galore + More

Hello lovelies! 

Let's hop right in to where we left off last time! :) 
 Monday was filled with lots of eating and shopping. (And watching for the Eclipse!) We first started out with some Krispy Kreme donuts. Tyler and I aren't huge fans of KK, but it was right there next to where we were shopping so #yolo.
Next, we made a stop in the COACH store. I don't so much care for COACH purses but I wanted to check out the store since they bought the Kate Spade brand. I still hated the purses... However, I did find a dainty gold necklace there that I LOVED. I didn't buy it but I keep thinking about it so I may have to go back and get it before we leave. ;)

Moving on... Next, we headed to my favorite Christmas store here in town! Those of you who have been around for a while KNOW that I love Christmas! It's my favorite time of year... so I CLEARLY had to make Tyler go with me as I "ohhh & ahhh" throughout the whole store! Ha!
I loved the Wizard of Oz nutcrackers! <3

We also went in to this neat little tea shop. The lady who owned the shop was super informative about all the different types of tea she had and gave us a ton of different samples. I'm not a big tea drinker, BUT... some of the tea we tried was actually really tasty! 

The donuts finally started wearing off around 2:00 and I was craving some mexican food. I don't remember the name of the place we went to but it was super delicious! 

Before we headed back to Big Cedar Lodge to spend the rest of the day by the pool, we stopped by "It's Sugar" to get some candy. We spent THIRTY dollars on candy, y'all! Who. Does. That. LOL!

When we got back to our room, we changed and headed to one of my favorite spots for the rest of the night! The views are just so beautiful!
Do you understand why I love it so much now? If not, we can't be friends! ;) 

The next day we woke up and headed to eat at one of my favorite restaurants, Lambert's! I know some people think it's a super overrated but I actually enjoy the roll throwing! Ha! This was our spread:
(Probably the most un-uniformed picture I've taken but... #reallife)

The rest of the day was spent in the pool and hot tub! P-e-r-f-e-c-t-i-o-n!

Once we left the pool, we headed to the Buzzard Bar to get some food for dinner! They had a guy playing live music so we sat down and enjoyed that entertainment while we ate.
The bottom right picture is of the famous 'Oreo Stuffed Brownie' that we love so much! It was just as tasty as we remembered! 
The pretty waterfall that's next to the Buzzard Bar! <3

The next morning, we woke up and headed for coffee!
We rode with the top down of course! ;) 

We went to the most charming coffee shop ever... It was called "Vintage Paris". I was obviously drawn in by the name...
Isn't this place precious?!?!

After coffee, it was pool time!

Once lunch time came around, we decided to go to Uncle Bucks for lunch! We sat out on the porch because the weather (and view) was so beautiful.
These onion rings were bomb!! 

Uncle Bucks is connected to a super cool bowling alley, arcade room, laser tag and other fun activities! I loved the bowling alley though so I had to take a picture! We may go bowling before we leave...

Once we left Uncle B's, we decided to go on a little "hike" and check the grounds out a little bit. 
We checked the spa out... This little house was right next to it and I thought it was really cute! The spa had these super comfy swings right before you went inside so we chilled for a bit. 
I'm telling you, this place is just oozing with beauty! I think this was my favorite spot so far... It was so peaceful.

After walking around for good while, we decided to rest a bit before heading back to the room! 

We ended the evening with some frozen custard from Andy's. Not going to lie, we weren't super impressed with Andy's even though everyone has recommended us to go there. Oh well, you live and you learn! Ha! 

Until next time, have a wonderful day loves! <3

Love always,
Charity
XOXO
