Room 201

   I had the most wonderful weekend getaway with my mother, Cindy. We've never done this before and were looking forward to it for months. I wanted to give her a Mother's Day she would never forget. I've posted about Brenham, TX here and most recently here. It's my new favorite place in Texas. It's so small and charming and I find something new and amazing every time I go back. We left her house in Pipe Creek bright and early and had breakfast with my sister and nephew in San Antonio before the 2 hour drive to Brenham. We stayed in a cheapo motel the first night and then anxiously waited for 3 pm to check into the most fabulous hotel room we've ever seen.

It was perfect!! It was a corner room so it was filled with beautiful natural light. The antiques were exquisite. I only chose this room because it was the only one with two beds and I wanted maximum comfort for the both of us. After peeking into the different rooms, it was obvious we had the best one. It was well worth the $200 price tag. The innkeepers were so nice and helpful. Our room came with two luxurious robes that we didn't want to take off, there was a communal refreshment room with unlimited gourmet coffee, sodas and Blue Bell ice cream, a HUGE porch to relax on while overlooking the veranda and a board room filled with games and DVDs. Not to mention free breakfast the next morning. It was heavenly. I can't wait to go back. 

I wanted to steal this lamp. So cute!

   We stopped at a few places on the way into town. I loved this little house. It didn't look like anyone lived there for years. I'd live there! We stopped at Pleasant Hill Winery and took a few photos. I completely forgot to pay for our tastings and felt so horrible I had to go back and leave cash in the envelope.

   My mama is so precious. I have the best time with her. She is so lighthearted and kind. Everywhere we went, mom was all "hello"s and "thank you"s. She puts a smile on everyone's face. I want to be more like that. I don't get to see her as much as I'd like.

 There's that smile!

Brenham is the hometown of Blue Bell ice cream so we had to pay a visit. I'm actually enjoying a bowl of mint chocolate chip while it type this. :)

Favorite moments:
1. Taking this photo
2. and this one
3. Listening to a great mixed CD my brother made us
4. Having a heart to heart on the steps of a huge abandoned Victorian House while the sun went down
5. watching A Room with a View on the back porch while it rained
6. pulling over and watching the horses run
7. Not letting the rain spoil our picnic and having it in a gazebo in the center of town
8. showing her my wedding venue for the first time and seeing the look on her face. She loved it.

  2. I have caught myself smiling from ear to ear while scrolling through this beautiful post. What an adventure! I love all the little details and drop dead gorgeousness of this little town in Texas. It looks like you and your mama had a perfect time! That empty house by the way? Is it weird to say I just want to move in it and make it work??!

    1. Thank you so much. That is so sweet of you to say. I'm smiling now too! And that's not weird at all! I loved that itty bitty house. I want nothing more than to live in a little house in the country. It's so charming.
