F'burg or BUST...

My 3 best girlfriend's and I took a much needed few days away this past weekend to the Texas Hill Country. We had been looking forward to this trip for ages and we took full advantage of all Fredericksburg has to offer. Namely wine, wine and more wine.

First order of business... coffee.
If you live in Dallas and haven't had the sig latte at Pearl Cup you should be ashamed.
As the group "travel agent" I was in charge of finding the perfect place to call home for the weekend. On the recommendation of a friend from college I searched Absolute Charm Luxury Bed and Breakfasts and found Augusta's Haus. It was perfect! We couldn't have been happier with the accommodations.

The pink bedroom... LOVE the dishes above the bed.

 The first day we were there we explored Main Street. We started early at the biergarten sampling our fair share of local brews and had lunch (and 2 bottles of wine) at Herb Farm, a great cafe, shop and of course, herb farm a few blocks off the beaten path. 

The Herb Garden
 Touring a handful of wineries was already on the itinerary but Meredith surprised us with a limo! It was a blast! We shared the tour with 3 sisters who were in town celebrating the oldest's birthday. We couldn't have chosen better car mates.  They were a blast! (unfortunately, I didn't get any pics of the limo or wineries and my girlfriends haven't had a chance to share theirs.)

We will definitely make a trip back to Fredericksburg.  I hope sooner than later.


  1. What! That rental house is too cool! I'm jealous of your girls trip, but ours is in 9 weeks!!! Yesss! I definitely want to try out that coffee place when we're in town :) If you have any other recommendations of places you think Lyne would like, let me know.

  2. Whoohoo!! I can NOT wait for you both to be here. Pearl Cup is a must. I'll start keeping a list of places I think we should take her. The new Matt's is on it already!
