Fredericksburg, TX

Posted on May 4, 2011


There’s no turning back.

After working nearly seven years for the same company, I submitted my “official” letter of resignation on Monday.  It was oddly liberating to turn in the letter – making it official sent a jolt of adrenaline through my body.  Our 15 months of researching, planning and saving are about to pay off!

To continue with Monday’s excitement, we also called and reserved our ABF moving date.  In less than one month, a semi trailer will be dropped off in our driveway.  Does anyone want to come over and help us pack?  No takers?  Come on!  We’ll provide Shiner Bock for you and homemade dog biscuits for the furry-ones! 😉


We only have 38 days (yes, we’re counting) until we bid Texas adieu, and we’re so glad we had time to make one last trip to Fredericksburg.


We always make a point to stop into Spunky Monkey Toys.  The sign alone is cute enough to pull you in!

Miraculously, we restrained ourselves from buying Gus one of these sock monkeys.

Dogologie is another store we always visit while in Fredericksburg.  Gus is always greeted with an enthusiastic rub behind the ears and a piece of jerky. 

Will you puhlease buy me one (or three) of those beautiful cookies?

We were so tempted to buy this cute little tee.  Gus is definitely a mama’s boy!

If you’ve followed our blog for awhile, you know we’re fans of craft beer.  We couldn’t possibly leave Fredericksburg without sampling the local brew.  Plus, sidewalk consumption is legal and encouraged.  Yes please!

For a mere seven bones we scored a souvenir pint glass filled with Pioneer Porter.  Mmmmmm.


For those of you lucky enough to have tried Blue Bell ice cream, you will understand our love for the frozen delight.  It is sooooo good and we will miss it terribly when we move.  We better eat a couple of cartons before we leave, don’t you think? 😉 

We saw this cutie right before we headed to the car.  She was one of many dogs we saw throughout the day.  People flock to Fredericksburg from nearby San Antonio and Austin on the weekends.  It’s a great place to shop, dine and stroll with your pet!

Speaking of dog friendly travel, you might have seen on Facebook that the Go Pet Friendly team was also in Fredericksburg recently.  M and I had the pleasure of meeting Rod, Amy, Buster and Ty during their stop in San Antonio.  It was so great to visit with them and they gave us lots of great advice about our upcoming trip.  We hope to bump into them again this summer during our travels.

We highly recommend you follow them on their website and blog.  Go Pet Friendly is a fabulous resource for anyone who travels with their pets!

It’s Wednesday and time to head over to BlogPaws for their Wordless Wednesday Linky.  We will update our post with the code when it’s available.  Happy Hopping!
