Lost Pines Getaway

Yesterday, AB and I headed to Bastrop to spend the night HERE for our anniversary.

We left around 10:30 yesterday morning and headed north. Every year we try to plan somethin for our anniversary, even if it's a night out to a fancy restaurant. AB is always so good about making me feel special on our anniversary or birthday. I was so excited to get away and just spend time with "us!"

Since we have moved, it has been hard to spend with just "us" and with our work schedules it seems we normally see each other more in passing. So it was so nice to go & spend time with each other.

Yesterday afternoon, we took a walk around the resort, had a few cocktails, and just spent time with each other. For dinner, we ate at the Firewheel Cafe where there was a buffet with bbq, mac 'n cheese, salad, baked beans, all kinds of cheese, and a dessert buffet.

Yes, a dessert buffet! I was in heaven!

AB was rather embarrassed by me snapping photos of the buffet so I had to hurry & snap the photos. ha! There was even a chocolate fountain!
There was even a childrens buffet which I thought was adorable.

Lost Pines is actually very family orientated. There were lots of kiddos around & dogs! Pet friendly as well...Reno & Coco would have loved it!

Everything was so nice. I felt like I was at a 5 star resort - which it kind of was I guess. It was tucked away off the main road & it was so serene.

Then the next morning, I got up - had room service and got ready for my 60 minute massage at their world class spa.

Django Spa

Ohhh, my husband sure knows how to spoil me! Talk about an amazing mini-vacay!

After my massage, I took a short little nap & then it was time to hit the road. I was not ready to leave! But I guess you have to come back to reality sooner or later...

The lady at the spa was telling me that lots of celebrities come to Lost Pines. Apparently they just got done filming a movie there with Jack Black & Shirley MacLaine.

I had such a wonderful time...and I can't wait to go back. I'm thinking a girls trip would be fabulous at this place. They have a huge pool with a lazy river that I think would be great for summer. I have more photos of my phone that I'll upload for another post.

On our way home, we took a mini detour to Lockhart for some bbq! We stopped at Black's BBQ and had some of the most delicious bbq I've ever eaten.

After dinner/delicious buffet...for some reason it looks like I've been crying. & which by the way, I ate WAY too much!!

Happy 3rd Anniversary!

I am looking forward to many, many more!
