This past weekend I travelled to Boerne/Fredericksburg with some friends of mine. We stayed in Boerne at "the compound" aka paradise for me (the boyfriend's dad's house).
Patrick was still out of town, with his dad and brother. Rather than fill my weekends doing productive things around my apartment (like decorating), I spent the two weekends he was gone out of town as well.
In any case, Alisa, Maggie and I went to Boerne and Fredericksburg.
To drink wine.
And man, did we drink a lot of wine, and eat a lot of food. Meat. We ate a lot of meat. Like sausage and chicken fried steak and roast beef. Lots of meat.
Saturday was spent travelling to different wineries around Fburg, including my fave Becker Vineyards. I greatly increased my wine collection at my abode this weekend, which was much needed. We had a tour of the Becker winery which was really interesting and given by the manager of the winery, who Maggie noted was single. I think we might lose her to Becker.
We also did a lot of shopping around Fburg. I didn't buy anything but dips from the Dip store. I know it has another name, but I incessantly referred to it as the dip store on saturday until I introduced Maggie and Alisa to all its glory, and we basically ate lunch on dips at this store. If you don't know what i'm talking about, you should go to Fburg, and check out the dip store. I think there's a sign out front that says something like "Texas Gourment Foods" or something like that. Its on Main. Go and dip. You won't be disappointed.
That night we went to a wine bar on Lincoln St. recommended by my wine-o parents. It was good. We had a malbec and some cheese. Atleast it wasn't more meat.
Afterwards, we went to dinner at the Hilltop Cafe. It was awesome. Its a "fancy" restaurant in a gas station on the side of 87, in Doss, Texas (atleast that's what my credit card bill says its located). Basically, keep driving on 87 through Fredericksburg till you see a gas station. It had a live blues singer who played guitar. I had red beans and rice, and a grit cake. It was delicious. I will now eat there anytime I'm in that part of the world. And I recommend you do the same.
I took photos of the three of us at each winery we went to. But, per usual, I have not uploaded them to my blog. Sorry bout that. I'll post them at a later date. It'll be a little surprise for my readers.
I had a great weekend. But, man was I ready for the boyfriend to get back. 10 days of being gone, 8 of which without any communication was enough for me.
Speaking of, the boyfriend returned Monday afternoon.
He closed on his house yesterday! I'm now dating a Homeowner. That makes me feel a wee bit more adult. I love the house, btw. I'll post pics of it soon!
