Our Anniversary Trip

With Baby P arriving in less than four weeks, my husband and I went ahead and celebrated our wedding anniversary a little early. We typically travel somewhere new, out of the state or country. But with pregnancy travel restrictions, we decided to explore Texas instead.

Joining us on our anniversary trip were our honeymoon friends. While on our honeymoon, a few years ago, we met this fun couple from North Carolina that also got married the same day as us and were celebrating their honeymoon too. We ended up becoming friends by the end of our honeymoon trip and stayed in touch when we returned to the states.

When our first anniversary rolled around, we reached out to the North Carolina couple to see what they were planning to do. We ended up planning a group trip to Nashville, Tennessee and had an absolute blast. We get to have a group for tours, concerts, and adventures. Then we break apart for evening dinners or dates. It is now tradition travel together for our anniversary every year. It is so much fun! I don’t know how we got so lucky to find such fun travel buddies.

This year, our North Carolina friends were kind enough to move our anniversary trip up and visit us in Texas. We had the best time exploring San Antonio, Austin, New Braunfels, Gruene, Fredericksburg, and Luckenbach, Texas. It was a tour of the Hill Country. Not only did we get to see new areas of Texas, our North Carolina friends experienced some of the best places in Texas to see.

If you are ever in these areas, I recommended some must-see places below:

San Antonio: The Riverwalk, River Boat Tour, The Alamo, Pearl Brewery, Market Square, Mi Tierra, Gunther House

Austin: Shops on Congress St, Deep Eddy Distillery, 6th St, Rainey St, Salt Lick BBQ

New Braunfels: Naegelin’s Bakery, Float the Guadalupe or Comal River, Pour Haus

Gruene: Gruene Outfitters, Gristmill, Gruene Hall, Cotton-Eyed Joes, Gruene General Store, Adobe Verde, The Grapevine, Tavern on the Gruene

Fredericksburg/Luckenbach: Burger Burger, Beulahs, Dooleys, Becker Vineyards, Grape Creek Vineyards, Crossroads, Silver Creek, Luckenbach Dance Hall

Like. Love. Lick.

This last week, my husband, sister-in-law and I went on an eating adventure. We tried a new restaurant and found a wonderful ice cream shop, called Lick. It was so yummy, I wanted to share it with some of my favorite people – my readers!

Lick Honest Ice Cream is unique by the ingredients they use. Not only does it taste good, it is better for you than typical ice creams you find at super markets. They also have fun flavors, with crazy combinations that are surprisingly delicious. With the heat in Texas not slowing down, this ice cream is a great way to stay cool without feeling as guilty.

If you are ever near one of their locations, I highly recommend stopping in for a scoop or two with your family!

Little Black Maternity Dress

After receiving requests about my black dress, I decided to share it with all my readers! I am in love with this black dress. My tummy is about to not allow me to wear it anymore, but it is definitely one of my favorites. It is great for showers, weddings, or when you just feel like dressing up.

Labor Day Weekend Fun

This past weekend, my husband was so sweet and surprised my dog and me with a trip to the coast, as well as a prenatal massage for me. We had time to relax and unwind as we prepare for Baby P to arrive in seven short weeks. The sun and the sand was the perfect recipe for a great Labor Day weekend.

I apologize for the poor quality. We used the selfie timer to get a family photo.

All pregnant moms: If you have not had a prenatal massage, I highly recommend you book an appointment today! It was one of the best massages I ever had, and they even had a pillow for my belly so I didn’t have to lay on my back or side for the massage.

I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend and the remainder of your week is grand! I would love to hear where you went for this extended weekend! Feel free to share in the comment section below.
