So the hubs and I are droppin’ the kids off in Austin on Friday morning so we can spend a weekend by ourselves for a belated anniversary celebration. That’s right folks. FORTY-EIGHT hours of kid-free
bliss time! Plus, we are taking his car with a GPS this time, so there should be NO disagreements about which way to go, right? Riiiiiight….
It’s been a while since we’ve taken a trip alone together. I believe it was May of 2005, when we went to Palm Beach, FL for a four-day trip when The B Man was about 13 months old.
For this trip I am sure The B Man will be fine because he’s going to spend a lot of time with his cousins Catherine & Grace, who he adores. But, I am not so sure about Little G. He’s never stayed with my parents without us there before and well, he’s just kinda moody (a.k.a cutting a couple of teeth). I am praying that he does fine for them.
But back to our time alone…
The last time we went on a trip such as this (small TX town with lots of B&Bs and antique shops) we went to Jefferson and stayed at a sweet little Bed and Breakfast. Our room was maybe 10 x 10. In other words, cozy. We took a tour of homes that included several older homes fully “decked” out for Christmas and we went into just a few (note the sarcasm) antique shops.
I think we’d only been married for a year or two so I am pretty sure my newlywed husband felt a little swindled. But it’s ok. He got some of what he wanted that weekend too.
I am talking about steak people. What did you think I meant?
This time we are going to Fredricksburg which is a little over an hour from Austin, in the hill country. We are staying at a much “hipper” place and since I am not into antiquing nearly as much as I used to be, I am willing to branch out where our activities are concerned. I even suggested hiking up Enchanted Rock so I can still get a workout while we’re gone!
The Fredricksburg area also now has wineries, brew houses and several other things to do.
So honey, don’t worry, I promise not to drag you through too many antique stores or houses decorated for Christmas. Really, I promise. Oh and we can probably find you some steak too… ; )
