It really was perfect :) We decided to do a little wknd getaway to Canton, TX. It was so last minute that we really didn't know if we should just stay in a hotel or take a chance on a Bed & Breakfast. We got so lucky! We found the cutest B & B just a couple minutes down the road from the trade grounds. It sits on just a couple acres, but it's out in the country so we got some much needed peace and quiet, ahhh! At one point JR and I looked at each other and laughed b/c it was so quiet out there! We loved it! Here are a couple pics of our stay at the Azalea House:
This was our first time staying in a "hotel" together, since Miami doesn't count as a hotel!!
The house has 8 different suites. The one I picked was the Lodge Room, obviously decorated in the rustic, lodge theme and happened to be the best suite! It's attached to the main house by a huge deck but separated enough for some privacy! Each suite has their own bathroom too! And ofcourse the bathrooms are themed as well!
We got to Canton around noon on Saturday and spend the next several hours just walking the grounds getting ideas for the stuff we wanted to buy. JR's main concern was leaving with some good homemade salsa! haha! Don't worry, he got it! He tried every single salsa sample on the entire 200 acres of trade grounds, no lie! We got to our B & B around 5:30 or so and showered up, because it'd been so hot that day. There's a section of Canton called "The Mountain" that looks straight out of a movie. It's an area up on a hill really, with tons of trees and little shops and diners all with that old western theme. Super cute! We walked around there Satruday night and had dinner up there too!
Sunday morning we woke up at 8:30 for breakfast! We had french toast casserole, fresh fruit, any kind of juice you wanted, coffee, eggs, and bacon! It was delicious! We'd heard there was pretty good storm coming thru, so after breakfast we headed back up to our room and went back to bed and listened to the rain until it cleared up around 11:30. Our checkout was at noon, so it was timed just right! For lunch we stopped in the town square at Val's for some great Italian food! We spent the rest of the afternoon scouring the grounds for the stuff we wanted to get last minute and headed back to the city around 5. Overall it was one of the most fun wknds I think we have had together! We enjoyed each other's company so much and were able to relax and just have a good time together! The only pics we really took were of the back of the house, so take a look!
Boo! I love you!!
