Fredericksburg Trip- Spring Break

Ahh...Spring break!! Last week was my week off and boy have I needed that break for a long time. My school year this year has been full of hard work as my class can be very trying at times. My sweet husband planned a trip to Fredericksburg over Spring break to give me a much needed sense of relaxation. I have never stayed at a bed and breakfast before but I loved every minute. Fredericksburg is such a cute little town filled with plenty of cute little shops.

Here is a picture of the front of the B&B that we stayed in. We stayed in the room called "the Loft". The weather was so beautiful while we were there. It made walking around the city so much fun.

Here is Matt in front of the old Dooley dime store. We went in to buy some batteries for the camera and MAN I have never seen so much variety in one store. It looked to be still family owned and operated. They had everything from batteries to bras and I am not kidding. The size of the store was really no bigger than a Walgreens. We had fun looking around at all the junk.

The Loft had 1 full bed and then a little cute daybed in the corner. I love the way the room was decorated. It felt like we were just staying at someones home. Everything was so nice and we slept like a king and queen.

Here is another picture of the room. I loved the master bed. Yall it does not look tall but I could really not get into the bed without Matt's help. They need to have a little step stool for those that are 5'3 and under I tell ya. It was fun to sleep in that bed....made you feel like a princess.

The couple that owns the B&B brought breakfast to our room in the morning. It was so yummy. The fresh fruit was a nice touch and I loved the basket that they brought the breakfast in.....too cute!

Matt and I had lunch at the famous Peach Tree tea room. It has been in business for about 30 years.....Matt's dad used to take his Mom to this resturant when they would go to visit Fredericksburg. It was so yummy. They had such a neat little bakery and gift shop attached to the resturant. This is where I bought that cute little egg cookie I used to decorate my Easter strawberry cake with.

Here is me standing next to a eagle carved out of an old tree that used to stand in front of the Fredericksburg library.....well it still does . The whole thing was carved from 1 tree. I am standing in front of the eagle because I believe in freedom......and Matt below is standing in front of the jail because he NEEDS to be locked up:) just kidding! Just look will understand:)

See is Matt in front of the old Fredericksbury jail house. I mean he is even wearing bright orange....what does that tell ya?? huh....huh... all he needs is number on his shirt. But I guess his only crime is that he planned the best trip for his wife.

On the way home from Fredericksburg Matt and I stopped to stay the night in Austin at Scott and Shannon's apartment. We had a great time visiting and catching up with them. They have a new dog named Teddy.....he is the cutest thing you have ever seen. He only weighs 2 lbs and is not any bigger than a rat but he sure is sweet. The funny thing is to see Scott take Teddy out for a walk....just looks to cute. I found this picture of Teddy extra cute...I felt like he was posing for the picture.
