This past weekend was a check off of my bucket list and such a fun little getaway. Two weeks ago my friend Jess asked if we wanted to take a trip down to Round Top with our daughters and on a whim we booked a room at The Wander Inn. We took our oldest girls to The Pioneer Woman Boarding House almost two years ago but had yet to take our younger ones with us on a girls trip so it was time.
If you are planning a trip to Round Top, I highly suggest booking a room at the Inn for the full experience. It’s such a laid back, relaxing place to kick off your boots. So much attention was paid to the little details and Amie and Jolie have done a great job with the design of this property. We stayed in the Star Dust Room and it was such a cute room! We had a spacious bathroom, two queen beds, and a balcony where Jess and I would escape to after we got the girls in bed to sit under the ceiling of stars and just get to enjoy the quiet. If you are around four little girls all day, you already can imagine the luxury that is.
One of my favorite things was no TV. This place forces you to relax and enjoy a slow pace. I actually got to sit on the front porch with a cold drink in a rocker and read a little of a new book and it was glorious.
We had our room and then shared a living space in the Star House with three other guests. Its full of comfy sofas and chairs, a coffee bar, and a plethora of fun books. The girls enjoyed playing games and the old records reminded me of our home and record player we like to listen to.
Delicious hot biscuits are delivered right to your room in the morning and they were so good! We spent our Saturday shopping, starting with Junk Gypsy World HQ. Such a cute place with unique finds! I could have spent thousands between the bedding, clothes, vintage pieces, and gifts. We’ve actually carried Junk Gypsy’s boots, paint, and their book over the last four years in my store so actually getting to visit was a dream come true for me!
In true fire family fashion, about every road trip we go on, we usually find a cool fire truck! I’m going to start making it a tradition for us to stop and take a picture. This one was on their property and for sale!
We had lunch at Popi burger and spent the rest of our afternoon shopping around Round Top which reminded me a little bit of Mayberry! So many cute little places to eat and shop. We had the best pie ever at Royer’s Pie Haven and I scored some super cute used boots at Wimberly! The already broke-in kind are the best kind.
The rest of the afternoon we spent back at the inn so the girls could run around outside. They climbed trees, swung from the vines, played tag, games, and built a tepee out of branches. Jess and I got some reading in and I took my camera out and shot some pictures of the longhorns…..because cows. And it felt like I was right at home.
We picked up dinner and brought it back to the Inn. We had Manditos and it was so good! The girls finished off some strawberries for desert and ended the night playing flashlight tag and finding an armadillo. It was so beautiful here. The stars just shine a little brighter in the country.
Even though they can be a little wild, I enjoyed bringing our girls and all of the adventures we take the four of them on. I hope they remember all of the unique places we visit over years to come.
We are planning another trip with just us mamas one day. It’s a place that is just good for the soul. Until next time, Round Top!
