I Mean, LITERALLY, All About Fredericksburg
You have all been warned- this post will be over-flowing with pictures and information.
First and foremost, I wanted to let everyone know that everytime we head to Fredricksburg for the weekend, we book our stay through a local B&B management company called Absolute Charm.
Our pick this time was a property called "Alberts Alistan", which was previously an old barn the owners converted into a two bedroom, two bath cottage. This was our third stay using Absolute Charm and they have YET to disappoint. The property was UBER cute, spacious, and decorated 100% like a reclaimed, rustic farmhouse, which I loved!!!
The only thing that was even mildly unsatisfactory was our mattress. My husband complained every night of it hurting his back, however, he IS used to a Tempurpedic. I had really no problems except there was no ceiling fan in our room. I know, first world problems...

The actual town of Fredricksburg, TX is really quite adorable, there are several stores, plenty of local eateries, and A TON of things to TASTE. For whatever reason, these people LOVE to put things/salsa, jams, olive oil, almond butter, jalepanos, you name it, etc. on top of a mound creamed cheese. It's so strange but I am 100% OK with it. You could literally sample things all day- from wine to craft beers, so bring your appetite & your stretchy jeans...
Also, I LOVE driving around to look at all the cool historical landmarks and "Sunday" homes. They are all very unique, and make for some pretty pictures.
Most of the things we do (especially at night) are in town, and very close to where the Absolute Charm properties are located. I love to stop in all the shops just because it is fun to browse, my husband HATES this part so I would def. recommend having a gal pal present.

One of my clients recommended (and asked us to pick her up a candle) at Circle E Candles while we were there this time, and OMG. For all you candle freaks out there- you are welcome...I had a field day at this place. I mean to tell you that I ACTUALLY lifted the glass jar lid on every candle in the room, and sniffed it. I left with 6 new candles.

My all time favorite is restaurant is Crossroads. You can have dinner here, then head right into their bar to watch some live music and A LOT of two-stepping. This is definitely the spot for some people watching, and one of the ONLY late-night bars!

Vaudville Bistro has a pretty cool Supper Club that will do food and wine pairings for a price ($$$$) but TOTALLY worth it. At the Supper Club the food comes CHEF selected so if you have any allergies, or in my husbands case, AVERSIONS (like seafood of any kind...) you may want to stick to the regular menu. They also have a Bistro downstairs which is GREAT for coffee, cheese boards, & deserts!
