Weekend Getaway

Back in May my husband found a weekend escape on LivingSocial for a bed and breakfast in Wimberley.  We decided this would be prefect for a little mini trip and to celebrate my birthday!  Our weekend stay included a Bottle of Wine and Chocolates; Complimentary Hors D'œuvres at Kate's Place; Saturday-Morning Breakfast Delivery; and a Four-Course Champagne Breakfast on Sunday!! 

We dropped Ryland off at my parents house Friday after work and then we were on our way.  Serenity Farmhouse Inn is a charming B&B - they had several other cottages (ours was called the Poet's cottage), gazebos, and other little oddities to explore.  Once we checked in our next mission was to find food, or maybe that was just MY mission :Þ, so we headed into town to find Ino'z Brew & Chew.  We loved this place!  They had outside seating (which we love), a live band, and the food was pretty darn good as well.  Maleks sandwich takes the cake at this place, that buttered sourdough bread was delicious.  After dinner we came back to our cottage and headed out to the pool to relax and drink our complimentary bottle of wine.

Saturday we enjoyed breakfast on our patio and then headed back into town for some window shopping.  Before heading to Bella Vista Ranch for an olive tour and wine tasting we ate a small lunch at the Wimberley cafe.  Later that night we went to the Cypress Creek Cafe for dinner.  They had a covered patio out back and TV's so we could watch some football and stay dry.  Yup, you read that right, stay dry.  Texas finally got some much needed rain the same weekend as our getaway.  The rain was quite nice and didn't bother us at all, it actually stopped raining for us during our wine tour and we saw a lovely rainbow.  I really enjoyed sitting outside under the covered patio watching the rain fall as we devoured our AMAZING dinner from CCC.  Seriously that food was AWESOME!  That night a HUGE thunderstorm rolled in, waking me up around 3am.  There's nothing like an insane thunderstorm out in the middle of now where to make you feel safe!

OMG sooooo good!
Sunday morning came all too soon.  We ate breakfast, checked out and headed back into town to buy some gifts.  Our last meal was at Kate's place and then it was time to head back home.  Ryland was a perfect little angel for Juju and Opa.  It was a wonderfully relaxing birthday weekend!  And yes, I did miss my little guy the entire time!
Goodbye Serenity!
