First in Fredericksburg!

Mike and I just celebrated our 1 year anniversary last weekend on the 23rd. I'm sure everyone says this, but it's crazy to think that it's been 1 year! It was kind of fun because as we were celebrating throughout Fredericksburg, we kept saying, "this time last year I was..." and it was fun to just think about all that.

Mike planned out a weekend trip to Fredericksburg which was so perfect and so much fun! We both LOVE the hill country area so it was nice to get out there. If you've never been to this lovely, little hill country town, it's so worth it! A HUGE Main St. with plenty of stores and shops. 

You know that raspberry chipotle sauce that people pour on top of cream cheese and no one can stop eating?? Ok, well, the place that first made that yummy goodness is in Fredericksburg! Sooo of course we had to sample every other kind! ... and maybe buy a few more...

Lots of restaurants, including our favorite, Hondo's.

Let me tell you why Hondo's is our favorite. Because it has a burger that has queso and pico de gallo on it. Need I say more?

Anyway, we enjoyed spending time at the Pacific War Museum, which of course was very educational and interesting. Definitely stop by all three parts if you go!

We also took a tour of a winery down there. I always really enjoy going on those tours because it really is so neat how they make wine. And every place has their own little method of doing it. It's crazy to me how long, and detailed the process of making wine is, and then Jesus' first miracle was turing water into wine! And not just any wine, the BEST wine. Wine that would probably take years to make! I think that's pretty amazing.

 Of course we got some incredible peach cobbler at one of those peach places on the side of the road!

We also spent some time with some friends from the summer camp Mike and I both worked at. We went bowling and all did a terrible job, then got some yummy pizza to make up for it! We spend a few hours on our balcony patio, just talking, hanging out. We noticed across the street from us there was a bride and groom taking pictures, and so we cheered and yelled "congratulations!" to them. Aaaaaaand then we stayed out on the patio until the very end of their reception. :) haha

Aaaand we all crammed into 1, yes 1 car. We were so inconspicuous 2 cops driving by didn't even notice. ;)

But probably the funniest part of the weekend was going to the Rock Box Theater. What this place does is they have an entertainment group performing a bunch of different songs spanning from the 50s through the 90s. (including a very talented Deputy Barney Fife impersonator!)

Let's just say we were the youngest people there under 50. We were looking around, and everyone we saw had white hair and was just so much older than us! Some of them were even celebrating their high school reunions from the 60s! Aaaaand others were celebrating anniversaries like Mike and I were, but instead of being married 1 year, oh, you know, they'd been married 32 or 54 years. No big deal.

But they did a ticket drawing for a free pair of tickets for the birthday people. And then, jokingly I said to Mike, "We better win those tickets for our anniversary!" What do you know? They not only gave the 54th anniversary people free tickets, but us as well! We were dying laughing. When we were leaving, everyone pinned us as "the 1 years". I wonder how they figured that out? ;)

Our stash that we brought home with us.

It was a perfect weekend! This 1st year has been met with several challenges and adjustments, but many, many, many laughs.

Looking forward to someday being that couple celebrating their 54th wedding anniversary. :)
