This past weekend was a busy one, as mentioned in my prior post on the Modern Home Tour, but let me tell you it was non-stop F.U.N. One of my bests, Nicole, invited us to stay at her parent’s newly renovated fixer-upper (which I could totally just live in forever), in Fredericksburg for a little girls weekend of shopping and wine tasting. If you’ve never heard of this magical place, Fredericksburg is an old country town that has become quite the popular tourist destination due to all the wineries near by and adorable main street, which boasts antique shops and clothing galore.
If you’re looking for a fun weekend getaway, where you still totally feel like you’re on vacation, but really only an hour and half away, look no further. This would also be a great destination for that oh so important holiday coming up, if you haven’t made any plans yet ;) Here’s a peak inside our weekend shenanigans and a breakdown of some of my musts while in Fredericksburg and the surrounding area. Yee-haw!
First stop was William Chris Vineyards. Thanks for the private tasting from Nicole’s family friends!They were having a contest for the month of February so whoever had the best kiss on the barrel had their lips on the next bottled wine! So naturally, we lathered on the gloss.
Activities: Wine tours, gallery art walks, Lyndon B. Johnson State Park, Hiking at Enchanted Park, and of course shopping down main street. Since I just love to shop, we went to town (literally) on Sunday and checked out the unique shops. Then continued to make pit stops all the back to Austin. Here we stopped in Johnson City (about 30 miles back towards Austin) and found some fun shops. Above antique windows from Gypsy Lady Vintage Goods and below awesome paintings from Echo. Although I’m no country girl, I just adore Fredericksburg. If you’re looking for a fun weekend getaway, this place is a must.
