Catching Up

Where has this summer gone?! I have been traveling the last 3 weeks so keeping up the blog has been a challenge!

I have an OOTD post coming soon, a fun recipe post and maybe a little something special!

I went to Indiana and Pennsylvania for work! Ate a HUGE Chicken Fried Steak… Not really my thing but when in Rome (or some hole in the wall bar in Indiana)! IMG_2478IMG_2483

Mark and I ventured to a craft brewer in Fort Worth called Martin House! We had SO much fun.  Loved the souviner glass and over favorite brew was the Imperial Texan!IMG_2488

I also ventured to Florida and successfully surprised my brother, aunt, uncle and grandparents! We had a great time enjoying family!

Then it was back to Indiana for Marks family reunion this weekend.  Let’s just say 17 hour road trips are not my thing.  I did get some awesome pictures! It was great to meet and see Mark’s family and just have a good ol’ time! Seriously cornfields in the summer are a sight to see! This place looked like a movie set!

One HILL of a time

What a whirlwind of a weekend! Bachlorette weekend has come and gone and it was a blast! Fredericksburg, Texas is a fun, and friendly little town! It was so PERFECT for a girls weekend and we had one HILL of a time! Loved the weekend saying…. Brides new last name is going to be Hill AND we were in HILL country… HOW GREAT!

We rented a house right off main called Abendlied! It was so great because when we got in Friday we all enjoyed drinks, dinner and girl time on the porch!

On Saturday we had a home cooked breakfast and then got ready for a day of wine tours!

Texas Wine Tours was who we went through and it was great! They pick you up [and you can drink on the bus]! We had three wineries to go to:

Tourre Di Pietra– First stop and didn’t know what to expect! It was very “Tuscany”.  Bonus for cat lovers is that they had cats there.  Downfall, I am allergic!  But we enjoyed sitting outside here and the cats didn’t come near me so I was good to go!

 Beck Vineyards– This was such an amazing winery! Great outdoor space and VERY yummy wine! We enjoyed lunch on their GIGANTIC patio!

William and Chris– This was such a cute winery.  They had great history and stories on their wine [and wine labels].  They were very knowledgeable and fun!

After the wine tours we headed back to change for dinner!

We went to Hondo’s. It had the best atmosphere and the food and drinks were great! They had a band playing called, “Almost Patsy Cline Band“.  LOVED them!

It was such a great weekend and we had some fun and interesting stops along out drive there and back… heck we even saw the Wolds Biggest Cedar Rocking Chair!
