A couple weekends ago, Dan and I as well as our friends Camden and Matthew went to a small town called Salado, Texas for the weekend. ( It's about an hour south of us and is very pretty, relaxing, and kind of old fashioned. We got there on Friday night and checked into the Bed and Breakfast we were staying at, Inn on the Creek: It was AMAZING!

Here are two pictures, one is of the actual B&B, and one is of part of the backyard:

There were hammocks, a wraparound porch, cats, a was awesome. We sat outside in the back and just relaxed for a while, and drank some wine that Matthew brought. Here's Dan enjoying the evening:

We were sort of dressed up because later that evening, we went to dinner at The Range:

Now just to give you a little perspective, these places weren't overly fancy or expensive, but they were very friendly, nice, comfortable, Southern... Jenna Bush had her wedding party stay at the Inn on the Creek and had her rehearsal dinner at The Range! So it must be cool, right?

The next morning we got up and had a homemade Texas breakfast, including biscuits, gravy, grits...and some other more healthy stuff too. :-) Then we all went outside and just laid in the hammocks and rested for a while. (I was on the phone with Julie when Camden took this pic)

We spent the day walking down the Main Street, shopping at antique stores, home stores, jewelry stores, cigar stores (not kidding although that was all Dan and Matthew), a fudge store, and ended the afternoon at the local winery! It was really hot but other than that so much fun. Plus, we got a few neat things for our apartment that are really unique.
All in all, a great weekend. Anyone who comes to visit and is interested in going there, we'll definitely go again! Apparently the city has tons going on around Christmastime too...
