All my best blogger girls and I headed South from Dallas to have the best girls weekend ever, not only capture content for days, but enjoy this fun little getaway in Fredericksburg. We had an absolute best time ever and created memories that will last forever.
Where To Stay
While on our girls trip we stayed at the cutest little rental place called Absolute Charm. Absolute Charm has over 200 very special properties all over Fredericksburg. The place we stayed was the perfect house for all 10 of us. We all slept comfortably and was truly a charm! This specific property called Bella Manor consisted of the main house and two smaller cottages like carriages in the back and can easily accommodate 12 people. It was the perfect place for us girls.
Bella Manor House is a stunning hill country vacation rental in Fredericksburg. It’s located just two blocks from the main street and is definitely centrally location without being on the busy roads. Not only is the house darling, but the two carriages in the back are precious. One of the suites has a one bed, one bath suite and the second one (Lavender Suite) has a king bed, full bath and kitchen. Myself and two other girls stayed in the Lavender Suite and loved it. The decor was adorable and truly a charm! Y’all can book your stay here or just learn more about Absolute Charm!
Not only does Absolute Charm offer a wide range of rental properties, but they have the best wine tours to the finest Texas wineries in Fredericksburg. This was the first wine tour that I’ve ever taken and I had a blast. Our tour guide host, Barry, was awesome and took care of us. He picked us up from the Bella Manor House and took us to three different wineries. Upon arrival we had our own private tasting, reserved table and personal reservation at each winery. There was no crowd, no hussle and bussle of trying to get a tasting, where some wineries can be! On our tour we visited Hilmy Cellars, Signor Vineyard, and Lost Draw Cellars. Each one was amazing and different in their own way. I have to be a little bias and say that Signor was my absolute favorite.
Where To Eat
When we first arrived on Friday evening we had a chill night and ordered in pizza from West End Pizza Company. I’m pretty picky about my veggie pizza, but I loved it! The pie was cut in squares so you could easily have as little or as much as you want. The salads were fresh and yummy. It was the perfect evening with the girls!
Saturday morning we brunched at Sunset Grill. I have been here before when Colin and I came to Fredericksburg, so I was excited to come back again. It truly is the perfect brunch place and has a wide range of different items on their menu. Sunset Grill does have a patio, but with a larger party is was easier for us to sit inside. Fun Fact: I loved how the Sunset Grill had a hometown connection. A couple of their breakfast items were related to Carlsbad, CA!
Saturday evening we had a yummy mexican dinner at Mamacita’s. All us girls were craving mexican food and quesco. I mean what Texas girl doesn’t? It’s a great casual dinner place in Fredericksburg.
On Sunday we had brunch at most precious place ever, Emma + Ollie. It’s safe to say, this is my favorite place we ate at. It’s the cutest little place in Fredericksburg and I’m excited to come back again. At Emma +Ollie, y’all can order breakfast or lunch. I ordered the avocado toast with a side of fruit, it was so good! Oh, and their beneigns are incredible! I would suggest making a reservation just to make sure you have a table. If you’re on a time crunch, but still want to eat at Emma + Ollie, they have the yummiest bakery to grab and go.
What I Wore
I am going to be honest with y’all, I wore so many outfits and I definitely overpacked. That’s just what you do as a blogger, you overpack to capture all the content you can for the blog. The amount of outfit changes that we made couldn’t be counted on one hand. That’s just the life of a blogger. Most of my outfits are linked below and others are from Ruthie Grace Boutique or VICI and some jewelry pieces from Cadyn and Charlie. (other Styled by Sequins outfits linked with the @liketoknow.it app!)
Who I Traveled With
As y’all know, I went on this trip with all my best blogger gals as I mentioned above. So here’s a funny story for you, most of these ladies I had met before and some I haven’t yet prior to this trip. That’s just how it goes with blogging. We all have a stories on how we met, some I met at events or had met up for coffee to chat. I’m going to be honest… all these ladies are so inspiring, real, genuine, and uplifting. I’m truly so blessed to have these ladies in my life because I know they all support me on a personal level. It might sound silly, but these girls are truly an answer to my prayers. I can remember praying for a blogger girls group, as I needed the support of girls around me who aren’t the “bitchy” kind.
