This weekend we celebrated our 10 year anniversary, which was officially last Saturday. We went to Salado, TX and left the kids behind with “gammy” (Mychaels mom, who lives with us). As always, we like to share with our readers the local stuff, spend money locally and endorse what we liked. So, here it goes.
We stayed at the Yellow House Bed and Breakfast.
Approach to Yellow House B&B from the road.
They have several rooms inside the main house, (where we stayed) and 4 cottages around the outside of the property. They also have a barn that can be used for events. We were the only people staying there this weekend, so breakfast on Sunday was just us.
Breakfast for two
It was very clean, and the lady and her husband were very accommodating. Also, quite reasonable price-wise compared to the in-town B&Bs in Salado. Only an extra 5 minutes out on a country road and save 100 bucks per night.
We are considering having Scott’s retirement party there, we liked it so much.
8 years ago, when we originally moved to Texas, we went to Salado Glassworks, and made a green bowl together–which we still have. So we decided to revisit them and do it again.
You get to be a part of the entire process from start to finish. Mychael had to stay behind the yellow line and blow the glass, because she didn’t wear closed-toe shoes.
In this case, we had a last minute scheduling conflict (we had to go to our daughters Nutcracker tryouts because the hurricane pushed it to the right) and they were very nice about it. They let us come 4 hours later than our appointment to do our fun anniversary thing. Salado Glassworks has always been top notch for customer service and you actually learn something about a trade.
We had dinner at The Range at Barton House.
5 start steak. And you need reservations. Also guys, if your pregnant wife wears super uncomfortable black spikey heels just because you like them, she’s probably a keeper.
In town, we also visited Salado Olive Oil, and Salado Winery and Wine Seller. June at Salado Winery is a former Blackhawk pilot and very sweet. Go see her and tell her Scott and Mychael from Ljubomir Farms sent you.
The Sugar Shack, The Strawberry Patch, and McCains Bakery (for lunch) were great too. Salado always makes a great day trip and it did not let us down for our entrance into double digit years of marriage.
We sat by the Salado River and enjoyed the perfect weather for one last moment before heading back to our three hooligans and crazy farm life.
